Our team came up with a few holiday gift ideas that can help maintain good mental health and promote self-care. These are gifts we like to give (or receive!).
- A good book (consider NAMI’s new book, You Are Not Alone!)
- A meditation app, such as Calm
- Grounding crystals
- Herbal tea
- Weighted blanket
- Light box
- Lavender pillow spray
- Rose water or lavender facial spray
- Essential oil diffuser with calming essential oils
Note about shopping: we like to support local vendors whenever possible! If you’re shopping online and using Amazon, be sure to use Amazon Smile, a free service that provides us with a portion of proceeds; you simply log on using www.smile.amazon.com and choose NAMI Westside Los Angeles as the nonprofit recipient to get funds from Amazon (at no extra cost to you!).
