If you’re not taking care of yourself, then who is? That’s why you need to set aside at least a little time every day to treat yourself right.
But self-care doesn’t need to be difficult or time-consuming. With the right kind of self-care items, you can quickly jumpstart your routine and feel near-instant stress relief.
Today, we’ll look at our seven favorite self-care items. Pick one or two to get started, and you’ll see how quick and easy it can be to treat yourself right.
#1—An everyday ring set you absolutely adore
Are you surprised to see this on the list?
In the hundreds of reviews for Blush and Bar rings, one theme our customers keep mentioning is that it’s one of their favorite self-care items.
And it makes sense. A dainty statement ring can be the secret ingredient to a perfect day. Making yourself look your best from the minute you get dressed is a moment of self-care that says, “I’m worth it.”
It’s an effect that carries into everything else for the day. That’s why an everyday stackable ring set is also one of our favorite self-care gifts for a BFF or loved one.

#2—A weighted blanket that gives an immediate sense of calm
What is a weighted blanket?
It’s a regular fuzzy blanket, but one that weighs around 5-30 pounds. It might not sound like the most sophisticated kind of self-care, but users claim this blanket helps them feel safe and removes anxiety.
Plus, there’s no better way to relax than cuddling up in a blanket with a good book.
#3—An essential oil diffuser for easy aromatherapy
It’s no secret that essential oils can help us feel more relaxed almost immediately. If you’re looking for a simple change to your self-care routine, your favorite essential oil is a perfect choice.
The first step is to find a simple oil diffuser. You can find dozens of models online or even at a local store.
But for the real magic, you’ll want to pick your favorite oil to go in the diffuser. Experiment with what makes you feel best. Some of my favorites include jasmine, tangerine, and lavender.
#6—A perfect homemade face mask to nourish and rejuvenate
A face mask is the perfect way to wind down after a hard day, and all the more so if you have sensitive skin or dry skin.
Sure, you can buy a premade cream or sheet mask. But a face mask is also a great way to experiment with your tastes and try something new.
When you make your own mask, you can stick with all-natural ingredients you love. Learn about your skin and choose different options that work well with your complexion.
Some options include nourishing oils like shea butter and coconut oil and cleansing ingredients like activated charcoal or raw honey.
#7—A scented candle to melt away all your stress
If there’s one self-care product that will be an instant success, it’s a scented candle.
The beauty of a candle is that it only takes a few seconds to light but soothes the whole body almost immediately.
A candle is one of those few self-care items you can use almost anywhere, almost anytime. Even if you’re in the middle of a stressful project, a candle in the background can be a little thing that makes a big difference.
Or if you want to go all-in, you can prepare a cup of tea, put on some quiet music, and transform your bedroom into a luxury spa.
