The Gift of Wellness: Why We Need Self-Care Gifting post Covid-19
Welcome to ‘The Gift of Wellness’ a series of blog posts about how incorporating wellness into your gifts can make your gifts not only luxurious and special, but beneficial for the recipient. Each week, we’ll be looking at a different wellness & self-care theme and how we went about curating our Signature Range of Self Care gift boxes.
Today, though, I want to give you some insight about why considering Wellness & Self Care when putting together a gift for your loved one can be really special and meaningful, and have a positive impact on their life.
The last few months have been difficult, but there have been some positive aspects...
The world has changed so much over the last few months due to Covid-19. It’s been an extremely difficult time for much of the country, as people have been furloughed, lost their jobs, had to pivot their businesses, and of course, many have sadly had loved ones pass away.
Yet at the same time, a lot of good has emerged. We’ve spent more time at home with family, slowing our lives down and taking time to reflect and focus on the little things in life. And for a lot of people, that has changed their perspective on what they want life to look like going forward.
During the lockdown, people have been looking for ways to create and maintain meaningful connections during a time when we couldn’t see our loved ones. And a great way of doing this has been to send a self-care gift, pamper hamper or get well soon gift, to show that we care.
This has even extended to businesses sending gifts to employees to show their support, and wedding planners sending bespoke gifts to clients whose weddings have been postponed.
It's important that we stay focused on our Wellness & Self-Care...
As we start to see life head back to some kind of normality, it’s easy to start placing less priority again on Wellbeing and Self-Care. But it’s going to be even more crucial now to stay aware of how we’re feeling and how our loved ones and employees are feeling.
It’s great to be able to get out and about again, but the easing of lockdown comes with a lot of potential worries and stresses. Many people are anxious about finding a new job or going back to work, about starting to use public transport again, about their kids going back to school, or about how they are going to re-build their businesses. These worries will affect us all in different ways, and so making sure we continue to look after ourselves and the people around us, whether it's family, colleagues or employees, is so crucial.
It’s also important to remember that outside of Covid-19, so many people are going through difficult times; whether it’s family illness, relationship troubles, anxiety and stress; and it’s in these times that gestures of love and support from others can make all the difference to how we’re feeling.
And that's why we developed our range of Wellness & Self Care Gift Boxes...
It’s for these reasons that we developed our range of Wellness & Self Care Curated Gift Boxes. Each of our ethical gift boxes has been curated for a different purpose, but all are thoughtful gestures which show how much we care and encourage a focus on holistic health – mind, body and spirit.
At Amala Curations by MG, we really believe that gifts have the ability to spread happiness, and with this range, I wanted to create gifts which, beyond spreading happiness, truly have the ability to positively impact someone’s life.
Do you know a family member, friend, client, colleague or employee who’s been going through a tough time, and could use some encouragement to relax, look after themselves, and take some time to heal? Remember, the 'Self' in 'Self-Care' - this extends to ourselves too.
Our gifts are perfect for this; whether it’s for a loved one or employee going through a difficult time, or a pick-me-up for ourselves.
Our Wellness & Self-Care ethical gifts range from £58 - £88, and are all Cruelty-Free, Sustainable and 100% Natural.
You can get 10% off when you sign up to our monthly newsletter here, and we also offer Next Day Delivery.
Lastly, remember that often, gifts received outside of particular occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries hold even more meaning as they are a complete surprise..
