A list of unique and meaningful gift ideas, for yourself or someone you love.

We should always try to avoid giving a gift to someone ‘just to give one’. Instead, try to buy something that matters. Something to remember. Something that will affect the recipient in a good way – like a truly enjoyable gift bringing out the inner child, or giving ‘hygge’, or something highly instructive.

This is a list of gift/self-love ideas from Amazon that are meaningful and easy to love.
