5 Things to Give: Mental Health Edition | Thoughtfully Handmade

Mental health is so important to take care of no matter who you are. As a student, business owner and a person who struggles with overthinking, perfectionism and anxiety, it is essential for me to take care of my mind, body and emotions. Do you know someone like that? Often times, we forget to take care of ourselves. Give them a reminder by gifting them something in my gift guide!

Featuring Divine Remedy Healing, The Gem Next Door, Earth Appeal, Jemstone Destiny and Thoughtfully Handmade (that’s me!), this gift guide is all about mental health. All of these Canadian businesses have amazing products to help manage your friend's mental wellbeing. Be a caring friend and continue reading!

With fall around the corner, it's the perfect time to help your friend get their life together. Bojana, the owner, has conquered many obstacles to get to where she is today. She uses those personal experiences to connect with her clients to help them achieve the best results.

Bojana's energy readings are unique as she connects with clients' emotions to quickly identify emotional and mental blocks. Using that, she is then able to craft a tailored and practical plan for clients to succeed. Divine Remedy Healing also offers room sprays, skincare and jewelry to compliment your friend's spiritual journey. To see all of the fantastic products and services that Bojana offers, check out Divine Remedy Healing's website and Instagram page!

Intention Bracelets

I wear intention bracelets every day to remind myself to think positively. If your friend needs some help in that department, why not gift them a bracelet from Jemstone Destiny?

Joan, the owner, is fascinated by crystals and gemstones for the same reason as me- they rejuvenate and uplifts her. Joan loves to share the beauty and benefits of gemstones with others by offering affordable, tailored bracelets for all.

Similar to mala necklaces, these gemstones carry significance as well. Many gems soothe overactive minds, restore balance and bring the powerful, nourishing energy of Mother Earth to the wearer. To pick the perfect one to help your friend, head to Jemstone Destiny's Instagram page or website!

Mala Necklaces

The Gem Next Door | periwinkle mala necklaces | 5 Things to Give: Mental Health Edition | Thoughtfully Handmade

Jenna from The Gem Next Door designs custom malas and gemstone bracelets. If you don't know what malas are, that's okay because I didn't either! According to Yoga Journal, malas are strands of beads traditionally used for meditation and prayer. They are really popular in the yoga community, so if your friend is into yoga, this will be an excellent gift for them!

Each mala from The Gem Next Door is handmade and hand-knotted by Jenna with love and intention. If your friend needs some inner strength and self-confidence, or to calm an anxious mind, these malas will surely help.

Even if you don't quite believe in the power of gemstones and crystals, your friend might! Besides, these make for beautiful jewelry regardless of their health benefits. To get started on creating a custom mala for your friend, visit The Gem Next Door's Etsy shop or Instagram page

Mala Bracelets

If your friend doesn't wear necklaces, a mala bracelet or anklet might be a better option to give. Shyanne from Earth Appeal uses natural gemstones from all over the world to create her bracelets. She sells essential oils as well since some of the stones she uses can absorb them.

By using stones such as Amazonite and Howlite, these mala bracelets can aid in calming the mind during stressful times. That's perfect for students, new parents, business owners and teachers! If your friend has a more feminine aesthetic, these bracelets from Earth Appeal will be a great fit.

I also have these simple but effective Mental Switch cards made in partnership with Positive Chick. These have a powerful quote at the front to remind your friend to think positively. At the back is a message to pass the positivity on to someone else who needs it.
