We all (sadly) know the feeling of being stuck on the metaphorical hamster wheel and not being able to get off. Between work, social commitments and never ending to-do lists, slowing down and taking a moment for yourself can feel counterproductive.

The term “self care” was born as a much needed antidote to the busyness addiction that too many of us have fallen victim to. For the sake of our health - and sanity - It’s time to prioritise yourself and encourage those around you to do the same.

And what better way to suggest a little self care than through a thoughtful, curated gift? At Stellar Gifting, we believe in the magic of giving and receiving, and that there’s no better gift than the gift of self care. We’ve put together a list of our best self care gifts that are perfect for treating your bestie, a loved one, or even yourself.

  • Face Oil by Addition StudiosNo self care night is complete without skincare. This All Natural Face Oil by Addition Studios is filled with organic hemp seed oil, avocado oil and chebula fruit extract to leave you glowing. Guaranteed to have your skin feeling nourished and hydrated, you’ll find yourself reaching for it again and again. 


  • Stellar Silk Sleep MaskSleep is crucial to overall health, and our Stellar Silk Sleep Mask makes it an indulgence. Made from 100% silk, this mask is gentle on the skin and incredibly comfortable, providing an uninterrupted night’s rest. It’s the perfect self-care gift for anyone who values (and needs) a good night’s sleep. 


  • MET Surrealist Polish SetFor the beauty enthusiast, the MET Surrealist Polish Set is a dream come true. A collaboration with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this set includes a range of high-quality, vibrant nail polishes that are perfect for any occasion.

  • Base Camp Beauty Smoothing Brush: The Base Camp Beauty Smoothing Brush is a must-have beauty tool. Ideal for detangling and smoothing, this brush minimises hair breakage and enhances natural shine. The curved brush head is packed with dense boar and nylon bristles that grip our hair from root to tip leaving it silky smooth. Oh and it's also just really cute, and will make a great addition to your dresser or self care line up in your bathroom. Gifting this brush is a subtle reminder to your bestie to take some time out and pamper herself. 


  • Gracious Minds Reflections Stone Paper JournalSelf care isn’t just about physical wellness; it’s also about mental well-being. The Gracious Minds Reflections Stone Paper Journal is an excellent tool for mindfulness and reflection. With its sustainable, non-toxic stone paper pages, it’s a thoughtful self-care gift that encourages daily journaling and introspection.

  • Dream On Temple OilThe Dream On Temple Oil is a unique blend of essential oils designed to promote relaxation and sleep. A few drops massaged into the temples before bed can help soothe the mind and body. This makes it a great self care gift for those looking to improve their sleep quality or manage stress better. It also is great for long haul flights to help you calm the senses and slip away to sleep when you need to most. 


  • Solenn Soy CandleNothing signifies a self care night like lighting your favourite candle. We love the Hikiri scent from Solen, with invigorating smells of mandarin, basil and lime. Or explore the other three scent options to find the perfect fit for your bestie. Not only do these candles smell amazing but they are hand poured in Melbourne and sustainably packaged.
