We all have that friend who can’t seem to stop talking about Erewhon hauls and sound baths (it’s me, I’m that friend). But “wellness” these days can mean everything from hiking and Pilates classes to smearing on a face mask, lighting a candle, and calling it a day. Meditating, journaling, and even sleeping can be categorized under the W-word, too, because they’re all ways to take care of yourself from the inside out.

Below, we’ve rounded the 44 best wellness gift ideas that your favorite health-conscious friend will appreciate, no matter what category they fall into. From nonalcoholic spirits and sleep gummies to workout gear and a weighted blanket, they’ll get plenty of use out of the items below (and will be sure to tell you all about the benefits over a Chagaccino date).
