If you’re shopping for someone who loves traveling to resorts, chances are they love being pampered. Give them the gift of relaxation in their own home – with spa treats like aromatherapy and massage, cozy gifts like tea sets and fuzzy blankets, or even a smart, voice-enabled assistant to mimic their favorite vacation butler.

Here’s our list of favorite gifts for people who like being pampered.

Margaritaville Bahamas Frozen Concoction Maker

Divas like to drink frozen concoctions year-round, and they definitely don’t want to waste time with messy blenders, measuring cups, and lost shakers of salt.

With the Margaritaville Bahamas Frozen Concoction Maker with No Brainer Mixer, all ingredients can be added to a container designed with markings on the side. We also love the shaved ice option for resort quality drinks! Whip up pina coladas, daiquiris and margaritas – or try one of our favorite resort recipes.

Add-on: These fun neon margarita glasses and some lime-flavored salt for the rims!

Barefoot Dreams Exotic Throw

Who doesn’t love a good blanket for snuggling up on the couch? Well we have the best of the best here: Barefoot Dreams blankets are irresistibly soft and pampering, not to mention super cute in this exotic leopard print pattern.

The fuzzy blanket comes in a variety of neutral colors as well, sure to please even the pickiest recipient.

Full Body Bath Pillow

No one likes a basic bath – or basic bath pillows that float away when a suction cup malfunctions. Turn any bath into the ultimate comfort spa with this soft, full-length body pillow designed for the bathtub!

The soft, breathable body pillow has a padded area designed for the head, and a long, quilted body measuring 4 feet long.  It’s a perfect gift for some who likes to take long soaks while reading a book or dreaming about their next vacation.

Add-on: This portable SipCaddy hangs in the tub so a glass of wine or beer are within easy reach!

Smart Wifi Essential Oil Diffuser

Make that special someone feel like he or she is at a resort spa, surrounded by scents of lavender, eucalyptus, and frankincense with this smart Wifi essential oil aromatherapy diffuser.

The oils are intelligently released using ultra sonic frequencies, as opposed to heat, and the diffuser is compatible with both Alexa and Google Home so scheduling can be created using an app.

Add-on: We like this 100% pure essential oil set by Natrogix Bliss.

Shiatsu Back Massager

Time spent away from favorite vacation spots can be tense – sitting in traffic, hunched over a desk, basically doing anything except floating in an infinity pool calls for massage on demand.

We love this Shiatsu Back Massager that can be used any time, any place! It fits perfectly around your neck and has different strength and speed adjustments, to provide the perfect deep tissue massage. And the best part is the heat function, to ease muscle tension even more.

Smart Speaker with Alexa

You may not be able to gift a personal butler, but the Echo Smart Speaker with Alexa from Amazon comes pretty close!

The speaker uses voice recognition to complete tasks like playing music and reading news. It interacts with compatible smart home devices to set alarms, turn on lights, adjust thermostats, lock doors, find TV shows and more!

Now if only it could reserve us a beach cabana…

Electric Tea Kettle

Whether it’s afternoon tea in Barbados or evening sleepytime tea in your condo, a cup of perfectly brewed tea is comforting. This high-quality electric glass kettle heats water fast, and a blue LED indicator indicates when the water is ready to go!

Add-on: We love this Numi Organic Tea By Mood Gift Set, and don’t forget the honey!

High-Quality Body Products

Nothing says pampering like body lotions and oils that smell and feel great on the skin!

For women, we’re into Coco Rose Body Polish by Herbivore. This exfoliating body scrub is moisturizing and leaves your skin smelling like rose and coconut – like you just left the resort spa!

For guys, check out Tea Tree Hair and Body Moisturizer. It doubles as a leave-in conditioner and a body lotion, and guys rave about the clean, fresh scent it leaves on their skin!

Add-on – This Herbivore Rose Quartz Illuminating Body Oil for ladies, and Tea Tree Shaping Cream for guys.

Jonathan Adler Grapefruit Candle

This cult-classic candle that was designed for Soul Cycle classes is pricey – and often out of stock – for a reason: many say it’s the best scent ever!

If it’s good enough for upscale spin classes, then it deserves a spot on your gift list, if you’re lucky enough to snag one.

Luxury Travel Set

Get a jump start on your next vacation with this luxe travel set from AERIS, featuring a memory foam neck pillow, ear plugs and an eye mask, all in an easy-to-carry bag!

This travel pillow far surpasses anything you’d buy last-minute at the airport. We love the toggles that allow you to control the fit around your neck. It offers just the right amount of comfy support, without pushing your head too far forward. And the eye mask and ear plugs are a must for any pampered traveler!

Bonus: this is a great gift for road trips as well!
