If you’re anything like me, the day after Thanksgiving is spent sprinting through stores looking for the hottest Black Friday deals. And if you’re REALLY serious, you’re up at 3 or 4am standing in line to save dollars on your holiday shopping.
This year, let me save you the trouble of putting on your yoga pants & spraying dry shampoo like a mad woman before dashing out the door in the wee hours of Black Friday morning. Because you can find some FANTASTIC wellness deals on Amazon that will delight your yoga-loving friend and your cousin who’s really into Essential Oils this year.
Here, dear bargain-loving sister, is my list of the Top 5 wellness gifts to buy online. They’re affordable, convenient and I personally want one of everything here. In no certain order…

Why I love it: I’ve seen this baby in action and I can testify it pumps out an ultra-fine aromatherapy mist like a CHAMP. Plus it’s BPA-free, can run up to 8 hours, is very quiet and has an LED color-changing night light. Those qualities are hard to find in a diffuser. Honestly, I wish I’d bought this instead of the other brands I tried. You get FREE SHIPPING on orders over $49. Get one for you + one for your friend/daughter/a teacher gift.
Pro tip: Since you’re buying the diffuser, get essential oils to put in it. This starter kit from Aura Cacia has 4 basic aromatherapy oils everyone needs and would make a great item for a gift exchange.
The health benefits of Himalayan salt lamps come from its ability to purify the air, and businesses have even cropped up where people sit in a “himalayan salt cave” room to breathe easier. This set of 2 is a great buy, and you could gift them separately. They emit a gentle aura, and I use them as a night light or to soften the room for yoga practice.
3.) Start Where You Are: A Journal for Self-Exploration by Meera Lee Patel
This is the #1 Best Seller on Amazon in the Journals category, ahead of even The 52 Lists Project journal from Moorea Seal (another one I recommend). And for good reason: I bought this journal and wanted to frame the pages instead of write in it. It’s that beautiful. Filled with hand-lettering, inspiring quotes and writing prompts, this journal makes a gift that would be cherished by any lady making positive changes in her life.
This mat may seem pricey but it’s actually a middle price-point if you research higher-quality mats. The reason I’m putting it here? It incorporates a non-slip fabric that absorbs sweat (great for hot yoga), it’s machine washable, comes in 7 gorgeous patterns and includes a carrying strap. With all these features and the great reviews, they probably should be charging more for this mat. Go buy it before they realize it.
Pro tip: throw in this organic, non-toxic yoga mat spray so your loved one can sanitize their mat after hot yoga class & keep it germ-free.
5.) Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch
Many people aren’t getting enough exercise every day, so counting steps and tracking activity has become a necessity. I see all of you out there using Fitbit for tracking your fitness goals, so I’m including my favorite one here. I like the black one because it matches more outfits and blends in. This model syncs wirelessly with 200+ devices, is water resistant and has a battery life of 5 days.
Pro tip: keep up your daily water intake with the cult-favorite bkr glass water bottle with silicone sleeve. It comes in virtually any color you could want and includes a 90-day warranty.
So those are my Amazon gift recommendations, ladies! I hope this makes your holiday shopping easier. And if you still choose to battle the Black Friday crowds…stay safe out there, sister!
