Whether your bestie is a steam room stan or your co-worker can't stop forwarding you the latest Girls' Night In newsletter, self-care gurus are some of the hardest people to gift...they're already taking such good care of themselves! But take a few deep Ally-Maz-inspired breaths, Flax Home co-founder, Anna Heyd is dishing on her favourite restorative and regenerative presents...and just in time for the holidays.
"I am obsessed with this coat. It's cozy AF and one of those purchases that might be hard to justify making for yourself. But it's the warm hug you need to gift that self-care infatuated BFF in your life. (I daydream about how good this would look with our Azure Bedding!)"
Formula Fig Membership
"Skincare equals self-care, and a gift cards and membership at Formula Fig are the perfect gifts. Located in Vancouver, Toronto and soon LA, customizable facials and skin treatments are the perfect way to face a fresh year. If those locations don't work, Formula Fig ships an amazing selection of clean beauty products across North America, so your loved ones can have care delivered right to their door."
East 29th Vital Serum
"I adore this product! It's a rich, nourishing serum made for all skin types, and it's perfect for dosing your skin with a little extra love during these harsher winter months. It's also available at Formula Fig (and many other retailers or direct), but I believe this secret weapon should be in any self-care enthusiast's routine."
Flax Home Sleep Bundle
"You know I love linen, right? Temperature-regulating, airy, and comfortable—it's a huge part of my recipe for getting the best possible sleep. If you really want to treat the self-care aficionado in your life, a full sleep makeover starts with a 100% European linen Flax Sleep Bundle. My favourite calming colour combo? The Sheet Set in Shell and The Duvet Set in Juniper."
"Winter is so dry! Hydration is a fundamental aspect of self-care, IMHO. Drinking water is great, but keep your skin, hair and sinuses hydrated with this very stylish humidifier. Plus, it looks great in any room."
Flourist Gift Card
"Good grains are good for you. Flourist is a Vancouver-based bakery that only uses premium Canadian grains and beans, and in-house stone milled flour. Flax Home is lucky to call this amazing bakery our neighbour, so we know firsthand the daily benefits of treating your body to traceable, whole foods. Treat your friends to fresh baked goodies from either of their two Vancouver locations or products from their online store shipped across North America."
"From stepping out of a steamy eucalyptus shower to mixing up superfood smoothies in the kitchen, a good linen Robe can take you through your whole self-care routine. It's quick-drying, absorbent, and breathable, so it feels as good as it looks. P.s. it has pockets!"
