The holidays are coming, and chances are you deserve a present. Treating yourself to a gift that will set you up for a healthier, more mindful, or simply easier new year is a great investment. Whether you’re looking to up your fitness, meditation, cosiness, cooking, or productivity game, there’s a little something for anyone who wants to both pamper and support themselves on this list. Happy Holidays, and remember: investing in your wellbeing, especially if it gives you more bandwidth for helping others, isn’t selfish. It’s strategic.

Your True Home by Thich Nhat Hanh
If seated meditation sounds like too much to commit to right now, the book Your True Home by Thich Nhat Hanh has just one short teaching per page, 365 for the year. Start it on January 1st and try to practice that day’s teaching by taking a look each morning and simply keeping the idea in mind.
Yellow Willow Yoga XL Yoga Mat
As a reclusive writer who doesn’t like to be cold, I’m a big fan of making the gym come to me. This beautiful yoga mat by Yellow Willow is pretty enough that I can leave it out as an invitation to stretch all day long.
Crossrope Weighted Jump Rope Set
The weighted Crossrope is also compact enough to keep at home, but packs a very aerobic punch.
FitDesk Desk Exercise Bike and Office Workstation
If you have a little more space but not necessarily a home gym, The FitDesk has made a huge difference for me. Though I rarely use it as a desk for writing, this foldable bike/desk can help you work up quite a sweat as you waste time online or watch TV on your laptop.
Philips AirFryer XXL
I use my Philips Air Fryer XXL almost every day, and highly recommend it for an even cook, every time. And if you love smoothies but less so standing next to noise, the Calphalon ActiveSense Blender is smart enough that it blends whatever you put in it on its own, and stops when its done. Living in the future!
Brooklyn Bedding Luxury Cooling Pillow
I’m a big proponent of investing in a more comfortable bedroom — it’s one of those investments that really can make a difference in your sleep and sense of overall wellbeing. To that end, Brooklyn Bedding’s Luxury Cooling Pillow keeps things chill yet cozy for me, and Riley’s Sateen Sheets are my new favorite set.
Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Fan
Also important for most of us — but especially those of us with allergies — is to keep our air clean. Personally, I’ve found that the air-purifying Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Fan (which as the name suggests can function as a space heater or cooling fan) has made a big difference for my allergies.
BetterAir Biotica800 Probiotic Air Purifier
If you’d prefer something a little smaller, the Biotica800 Air Purifier is unobtrusive but also freshens your air quite nicely.
Bissell ICONpet Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner
Finally, for those with furry friends at home, Bissell’s ICONpet Vacuum is specifically designed to remove pet hair, helping you keep your place even cleaner.
