Disclaimer: Just so you know, if you order an item through one of our posts, we may get a small share of the sale.

Instead of buying stuff that will sit on a shelf, spoil your loved one with these pampering products designed to make them feel great. Help your special someone turn their home into an impromptu spa with these indulgent suggestions.

1. Give the gift of a fizzy, fragrant, and soothing bath.

The Oliver Rocket Bath Bomb Set is one of the highest rated bath products on Amazon. Over a thousand people have given this awesome product a great review, and it’s not surprising once you try it out.

The six different fragrances—lavender, cucumber melon, moonlight rose, grapefruit tangerine, black raspberry vanilla, and cool water—leave your skin smelling great and feeling moisturized. There’s no need for lotion after this luxury treatment.

Unlike cheaper bath bombs, this innovative product won’t leave a mess in the tub. That means transforming the bathroom into a spa instantly without worrying about cleanup.

2. If your BFF isn’t a bath person, you can still give them a refreshing boost.

The Ice + Spice Shower Steamer Set contains three distinct shower steamer tablets. These luxury items are made with natural ingredients and will fill a bathroom with delicate fragrances.

The set includes fresh fir needle, orange ginger, and winter mint steamers. The user simply places the tablet on the floor of the shower, and hot water releases all of the aromatic goodness—turning their shower into a rejuvenating event.

3. Gift certificates to a massage therapist are nice, but they only last for one or two sessions.

Receiving a Shiatsu Neck and Shoulder Massager means enjoying a massage every day. Use it in front of the TV or while lounging on the patio. It can even be taken on long trips to turn an uncomfortable flight into a soothing journey.

 

Sure, they can still go to their massage therapist when they need a professional touch, but in the meantime, this portable deep-kneading and vibrating massager will keep your loved one loose and limber.

4. If they’re looking for a deep-tissue massage at home, they’ll need specialized equipment.

Luckily, these simple massage balls are designed to get to kinks and knots in hard to reach places. The set comes with two sizes to facilitate at-home myofascial massage on whatever parts of the body are crying out for attention.

 

Your gift recipient’s hands will get a rest as they lean into stimulating relief. Gravity and body weight will provide the pressure to relieve tense muscles. These rubber balls are forgiving on bones, but strong enough to roll out even the tightest muscles.

This soothing accoutrement is easily portable meaning they can be taken on the road. If sleeping on an unfamiliar mattress or sitting in a car too long has someone feeling tense, these massage balls are just what the doctor ordered.

5. If you need a gift for someone who’s on their feet all day, we’ve got just the thing.

The Ivation Foot Spa Massager soothes aching heels, toes, arches, and ankles with a vibrating massage. This device will become a fast friend with anyone’s overused feet.

Just add water and the Ivation massager shoots thousands of bubbles out to relax and massage feet. It incorporates elements of acupressure, shiatsu, and hydrotherapy to melt away stress. Even if someone hasn’t run a marathon or pulled a double, they’ll still love to sit on the couch with their tootsies in a personal whirlpool.

6. Speaking of making feet feel better, here’s a gift you don’t see everyday.

YogaToes Gems stretch and straighten toes to prevent various foot ailments and make feet feel great. This BPA-free, made-in-the-USA product provides a multitude of benefits and feels great while it’s worn.

New users should start slow and build up to an hour a day. They’ll start seeing and feeling the benefits of straightened and stretched toes in no time. Read the reviews on Amazon to see just how much people love this innovative product.

7. Gifting a fun and affordable spa experience is just a click away.

For that special someone that really deserves a day of pampering, check out the deals on Groupon in your area. You’ll find great prices for a wide variety of services like massages, manicures and pedicures, skin treatments, and facials.

With all the money you save, you can pay for you and your friend to venture to a new spa. The only thing that beats a day of pampering with a loved one is doing it on the cheap.

8. A good face mask can feel like a whole new beginning to the day.

This Dead Sea Mud Mask fights acne and acne scars while removing dead skin and toxins. Made from actual Dead Sea mud, this mask will moisturize while improving pore congestion, tone, and texture.

Giving a beauty mask cajoles the recipient to take some time for herself, which can be the best gift of all. This Dead Sea mask beautifies skin while the user sits backs, relaxes, and remembers what a good friend you are!

9. Activate feel-good hormones with this ancient Indian method.

The Acupressure Mat and Pillow lightly prickles the skin, helping release endorphins to ease away tension. The mat is 16.5″ by 28.5″ and is inspired by the traditional Indian bed of nails.

Thankfully, this version is a little less hardcore. The small plastic points scattered over the mat will encourage the body to release its natural “happiness drug.” The mat and pillow are sold separately, but give the gift of both to ensure the full effect. 

10. This gift turns a house or apartment into a fragrant and soothing spa.

The VicTsing Cool Mist Humidifier has a gorgeous wood-grain design. Its large-capacity bowl holds up to 300 ml of water and can produce up to 30 ml of mist per hour. The super-quiet motor is barely noticeable, which means it can be run all night without disturbing anyone’s sleep.

This diffuser humidifies the air with essential oils (sold separately). It’s perfect for winter when the air gets dry and lips get chapped. The stylish humidifier has two light settings and four time settings for ultimate control.

11. If you know someone with sore bones or achy muscles, do them a kindness.

This full-body bath pillow pads a person’s body during their bath. By relieving pressure on the back, neck, and tailbone, the bather can enjoy more time in the tub.

This high-quality bath pillow is made from anti-mildew, quick-dry material. It can also go in the wash and comes with a mesh bag for that purpose. Give the gift of 3D air-mesh technology to someone who deserves it.

12. With all these bath products, they’ll want to bring some supplies into the tub with them.

This bamboo bathtub caddy is perfect for holding a glass of wine, an iPad, a book, or whatever else someone wants to accompany them during bath time. It expands to 42.5 inches and fits into almost any tub.

This versatile caddy also converts to a breakfast-in-bed tray or travel desk. Users can play movies on a laptop while they relax in bed with this stylish and functional piece of furniture.

13. To really show your appreciation for someone, give them an everything-included bundle for the bath of a lifetime.

The Solstice Essentials Bath Kit features three luxurious bath accoutrements—a soy candle, a premium bath-salt soak, and a Palo Santo stick bundle. These soothing products guarantee an ultra-relaxing night in the tub.

All three items come from Among the Flowers, a small-batch apothecary known for its natural and local ingredients. Give a gift that soothes and relaxes and you’ll forever be remembered.

14. Being in a rush can take its toll on a healthy diet.

This Oster Blend-N-Go Blender simplifies on-the-go smoothie making. It’s the perfect gift for the health-conscious person who is constantly moving. They can liquify, blend, or puree their favorite recipe, twist the bottle off, and take their drink on the road.

Whether they’re on their way to class, work, or the gym, Oster makes it easy for them to stick to a healthy lifestyle. It’s also priced far more affordably than similar smoothie blenders. With the Blend-N-Go, they’ll never have to skip a nutritious beverage again.
