Gifts of self-care that can help them kick back, relax and enjoy some well-deserved “me time”.

What a perfect way to make more merry this year, right? 

Now, let’s put an end to the suspense and jump right in, starting with three gift ideas for Mom (or any other important lady in your life).

Christmas Present Ideas for Mom

“Me Day” at Home Basket

Moms do so much for us day in and day out. So, give her a gift that’ll make her feel special and oh-so refreshed. Our Christmas present idea for a “Me Day” at Home Basket includes four different items: 

  1. Nail polish
  2. Scented bath salts
  3. Lotion
  4. Rejuvenating facial mask

Package them together in a basket or a gift bag with a note that lets her pick any day for the rest of the family to head out so she can put her presents to good use and have a fantastic “me day”.

Mom’s Relaxation Pack

This next Christmas present idea for Mom is perfect for a cozy and relaxing winter night-in after the kiddos have headed off to bed. Pick up a scented candle, her favorite chocolate candy, a pair of fluffy spa socks, a magazine and a package of hot tea or cocoa, whichever one is her preference. Then, wrap everything in a box and place it under the tree. This thoughtful gift is sweet (literally) and will help Mom relax after a busy holiday season. 

All Things Soothing Peppermint

The flavor and scent of peppermint is comforting and soothing. So, that makes it an awesome gift idea in order to treat Mom with a festive, relaxing and oh-so-minty present. Here are the four things we recommend picking up from your neighborhood Food Lion to include in this gift: 

  1. Candy canes
  2. Chocolate peppermint patties
  3. Minty bath salts
  4. Mint tea

Then, all you need is a gift bag to wrap it all up. Speaking of which, to continue the peppermint theme, use either a white bag with red tissue paper or red bag with white paper. 

Christmas Present Ideas for Dad

Everything Grilling “Happy Place” Basket

Is Dad the grillmaster in the family? If so, cooking on the grill may be his happy place, Dad’s place of refuge. So, for this holiday, give him a gift that’s perfect for his love of grilling with our Christmas present idea of an Everything Grilling “Happy Place” Basket. 

For this gift, we suggest picking up these four items: lighter fluid, a grill brush, a couple of seasonings and a grilling magazine. Although if Dad already has some of these things, you could easily substitute them for other outdoor cooking essentials like marinades, steak sauces and more. 

Dad Care Package

Give Dad a gift that can help him relax at home with this Dad Care Package. From skincare to snacking, with these five items, he’ll have all of those bases covered! So, make sure to add shaving cream, aftershave, lip balm, Food Lion pretzels or chips and either a six-pack of domestic beer or soda. 

And if you want to spend a little more than $20 on this Christmas present idea, add some sweet snacks, one of his favorite magazines and some scented body wash or lotion for the ultimate self-care package. 

Christmas Present Ideas for the Kids

Movie Night Must-Haves

Many kids love watching movies, especially from the comfort of home, where pajamas are definitely encouraged. That said, put together a gift of movie night must-haves, including microwave popcorn, your kiddo’s favorite movie candy, fuzzy socks and a box of hot cocoa (with marshmallows, of course). Then, let them choose the movie and enjoy spending some quality time together as a family or with a couple of close friends. 

Girl’s Makeover Kit

Our last Christmas gift idea is for the girls in the family. Let your little one have fun pampering herself just like Mom with this Girl’s Makeover Kit filled with:

  • Facial cleansing wipes
  • Lip balm or gloss
  • Eye shadow
  • Blush
  • Nail polish
  • Hair ties

Depending on your child’s age, you may have to supervise and help out a little. You could even have a pampering party just the two of you at home. But make sure to have your camera ready. It’s going to get cute!

And that’s it! Those are our seven self-care Christmas present ideas, all under $20 and using items you can get from your nearest Food Lion. So, what are you waiting for? Get ready to make more merry and spread some holiday cheer by heading to your local store to pick up what you need to assemble your gifts. We know your loved ones will absolutely adore these unique and thoughtful presents.
