  1. Wow! I want almost everything on the list. Thank you for including so many items that may help lessen the severity of (or at least provide some comfort to) my almost constant migraines. I hadn’t been aware of most of your suggestions. I’ve already ordered two of the facial rollers; I want to always have at least one ready to go. I’ll be getting some of your recommendations now (the hot flash stuff!!), but I also know what to put on my Christmas list.

    I have a question about the acupressure mat. I have some neck issues which I think could be helped by it. That area is quite sensitive. Can you feel the hard plastic nubbies, and, if so, do they feel pronounced and/or uncomfortable?

    I use light therapy for SAD, so I can put in a plug for the Happy Light. Several months ago, I purchased the Luxe model several months ago. It replaced my very expensive and bulky Northern Lights one; after more than 10 years, it wasn’t performing as well, and its large footprint had always been a sticking point for me. I’m very pleased with the Happy Light. The ability to adjust the warmth of the light is huge for me.

    Thanks for such a great post. It’s so useful.

  2. Thanks for introducing me to Necessaire—I am a bergamot fan and love their scent. And I have another similarly-priced body wash from a well-regarded brand but Necessaire lathers so much better. It goes a long way.

    I’ve been eyeing the Bearaby blanket for awhile—I’ve used a weighted blanket for a long time and I currently have one from Tempurpedic that is supposed to be temp-regulating, but I don’t notice it and the weights in it shift all over! Something knit that won’t shift is appealing, and they’re so pretty, too!

  3. I just learned about these mats from a you tube video and I was immediately intrigued. My husband thinks I’m nuts but I want one – so glad to see this recommendation from you!

  4. Asking more for myself (hehe) — is the body brush light or heavy? I had bought a brush from Amazon, but it was really heavyweight.

  5. What a great guide Allie! I just got the accupressure mat set (I didn’t even know something like that existed) and if it works on me then I know what my sister-in-law will be getting for Christmas. The tea kettle’s got me thinking too…..
