Happy African American woman opening a present

Shopping for friends and family who have proven to be self-sufficient can be quite the task. My mother is a woman who basically has two of everything. My friends live that, “I spoil myself” lifestyle, so there’s nothing I can get them that they can’t get for themselves. What do you get a woman who literally has everything?

I’ve learned that thoughtful gifts from the heart go a long way. Perfumes and purses are great, but what about something that’ll help your favorite person manage their mental health? How about a gift that’ll encourage them to prioritize self-care? Better yet, what about a service that’ll help start/maintain that business they’ve been struggling to manage?


If you’re in need of some bomb gift ideas for the women in your life that don’t want or need for anything, then you’re in luck. I’ve compiled a list of amazing gifts that your friends and family never knew they needed.

Sage is a wonderful way to cleanse or neutralize the energy of a space, person, or item. A smudge bowl can be used to house the sage in between cleansing sessions. If you’re not into energy cleansing, you can use the bowl as an ash tray, jewelry holder, or for general decoration.

Decor Homage has tons of really cute homemade trinkets that’ll give any home a nice, decorative facelift.

Are your chakras aligned? The Root Chakra is located in the base of the spine in the body. It is the first of seven, spearheading the alignment of your body’s energy. When your root chakra is balanced, you’ll feel grounded and stable in life. When your root is unbalanced, you’ll experience anxiety, nightmares, and feelings of disconnect.

If you have a friend or family member who feels unbalanced in those areas, True Tea’s Root Chakra Tea will help with alignment. Please note that this tea does not heal an unbalanced chakra. With spiritual work and a change in daily activities, you can effectively align your chakras.
