Are you looking for the perfect gift ideas for personal development junkies? You are in the right place!
Giving is a beautiful thing. But giving something that has the possibility of changing someone’s life is even better.
If you have a friend or a family member who is into self-development, gift them anything that will help them grow or improve the quality of their lives. They are going to love it.
But I know you came here for ideas, so here is a list of 15 awesome gift ideas for self-growth.
There is one thing that all personal development junkies have in common – hunger for knowledge. Almost everyone who got into personal development did so due to reading a great book that shifted their mindset.
By gifting them a book, you allow them to download years of knowledge and experience in just a few hours.
Just make sure you are not gifting them a book that they already have. Make a little research in advance.
If you have a hard time picking a good book, here are a few of my suggestions:
2. Audible Membership
Suppose the person you have in mind doesn’t like reading, is a very busy person, or prefers consuming audio format information. In that case, an Audible membership may be the perfect gift.
Audiobooks are a fantastic way to learn while you are on the go, doing chores, exercising, driving, etc. You can also consume them a lot faster since you can increase the narrator speed to up to 3,5x.
Choose an Audible membership and gift it to your loved one.
3. Amazon Kindle
This one can be a little pricey, but it’s a fantastic gift for people who love reading a lot. A Kindle allows you to download any book instantly and start reading it right away.
It stores all of your books in one place, which is pretty useful when traveling. It’s a great space saver as well. It’s so compact that you can easily fit it in your pocket or handbag.
How many times have you gotten an amazing idea in the shower but forgot it as soon as you got out? It has happened to all of us. The good news is that there is a solution – AquaNotes.
AquaNotes is simply a waterproof notepad that you can have in the shower, so whenever you get a new brilliant idea, you can write it down immediately.
This is the perfect gift for creative people who don’t want their ideas to wash down the drain.
Journaling is one of the best activities for personal development. It is a great way to let your emotions out, organize your thoughts, and reflect on what’s going on in your life.
Here are a few of my top suggested journals:
This journal helps you appreciate the little things in life and express more gratitude in just 5 minutes per day. Perfect for busy people!
This journal helps you keep your life organized and your brain decluttered.
This journal helps you gain an insight into what your subconscious mind is trying to communicate with you. By recording your dreams, you will start seeing patterns that you can later interpret to make your everyday life better.
This is simply a blank journal that you can fill with whatever you like.
6. Goal Planner
All personal development junkies are setting goals, and they are always looking for new ways to optimize their goal-setting process.
A goal planner is a great way to track your goals, know what next steps you need to take, and measure your progress.
7. Life Calendar
This life calendar serves as the perfect reminder that our time here on Earth is limited. It visually shows you how much time of your life you’ve spent and how much left you approximately have to live.
It removes procrastination instantaneously and motivates you to work on your goals. Perfect for those who want to stop wasting their time and start acting on their dreams.
8. Blue-Light Blocking Glasses
We constantly use devices that emit large amounts of blue light. This continuous staring at a screen tends to tire and irritate our eyes, but most importantly – it makes falling asleep a lot harder.
Chances are the person you want to give the gift to is spending a lot of time in front of the screen. This most likely results in them having difficulty falling asleep. One of the best things you can do is gift them a pair of blue-light blocking glasses that will help relieve the tension in their eyes.
9. Self-Care Kit
Taking care of yourself is a massive part of a person’s self-development journey. Most people who get into personal development soon experience overwhelm or even burnout because they were way too focused on accomplishing goals that they forgot to take time for themselves.
Gift your friend or family member a self-care kit that contains everything one needs to relax and destress after a long day of work.
10. HelloFresh Subscription
A HelloFresh subscription is one of the best ways to keep your loved ones healthy. They will get tasty yet healthy ready-to-cook meal kits shipped directly to their home.
HelloFresh offers a diverse range of meals that you can adapt to your dietary preferences. You can easily manage your weekly menu from your smartphone.
Step-by-step recipe cards are also included, making a HelloFresh subscription the perfect gift for people who are not that good at cooking or don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen.
11. Day Pass To a SPA
Taking a day off and going to a SPA can be all you need to charge your batteries after weeks or months of constant work.
We often focus way too much on being productive, working long hours, and filling every single gap of our time with activities that we forget that taking a break is essential for our performance.
Gift your loved ones a day pass to a SPA or a massage to help them relax and prevent burnout.
12. Prompt Cards
If there is one thing that can promote personal growth and reflection, it’s prompt cards. The ones that I recommend are from The School of Life. You can choose between several collections, such as Know Yourself, Calm, and Confidence.
Reading one of these cards every day can do wonders for a happier and more meaningful life.
13. Ticket To a Seminar
Personal development junkies love going to seminars. They are the perfect place for networking, meeting like-minded people, finding inspiration, and gaining new knowledge.
Find out what seminar the person you have in mind wants to attend and buy them a ticket.
14. Online Course
Another thing that self-development enthusiasts love is taking online courses. They are constantly looking for new ways to grow and uplevel their lives.
Do a little research about what they are struggling with right now, find the best course on the topic, and gift it to them.
15. Mindvalley All Access Membership
Want to give them a gift that they are absolutely going to love? Then a Mindvalley membership is a perfect choice.
Mindvalley is a personal development platform full of educational programs taught by world-class mentors. They have quests (courses) in different categories, such as performance, entrepreneurship, mind, body, soul, and relationships.
It is also the perfect place to connect with like-minded people, attend events, network, and speak with world-class legends.
