Great Sobriety Gift Ideas

sobriety gift ideas
If you’re looking for a meaningful gift for a woman in your life in recovery, reading this is a great first step. Finding a gift doesn’t have to be tough and it doesn’t even have to focus on her sobriety, so long as it doesn’t harm her recovery.

Just because she’s now sober, it doesn’t mean she’s a different person. So, if you know she loves a certain perfume, pajamas, earrings or a favorite sports team, go for a gift that meshes with her likes.

Thankfully, there are plenty of awesome products available this holiday season that can also help your loved one feel inspired, calm and focused on building a healthy sober life. Here are a few ideas to consider:
  • Massage/spa gift card: The gift of relaxation will help acknowledge the hard work of recovery. 
  • At-home spa kit: If you can’t afford a gift card, a homemade relaxation kit works, too. You can include an eye mask, facial scrub, slippers, essential oils, a scented candle and bath bombs. 
  • Adult coloring book and art supplies: Creativity is a powerful recovery tool and great use of downtime for your loved one. 
  • Journal or passion-planner: Writing in a journal or planner can help your loved one set short- and long-term goals and explore her inner thoughts and feelings. 
  • Box of relaxing tea or coffee: A soothing cup of tea or coffee is a perfect gift that will last all season long. 
  • Pretty mugs for coffee and tea: You can purchase a mug with a recovery phrase or inspirational quote or just a pretty design. 
  • Healthy cookbooks or cooking supplies: This will support her new healthful sober lifestyle and provide recipe ideas to rejuvenate her mind and body. 
  • A house plant: Try a low-maintenance cactus if your loved one doesn’t have a green thumb. 
  • Ornament: An ornament is a great keepsake and reminder of your loved one’s new independence now that she’s sober. 
  • Inspirational book: Just be mindful of your loved one’s stage of recovery, as you might want to avoid any books containing detailed descriptions of drug or alcohol use. 
  • Engraved jewelry or keychain: This can include her sobriety date, an inspirational recovery slogan or just a personal note of encouragement and love.
