A gift with wellness or self-care in mind can be as innovative as it is effective. Our guide of gender-neutral options includes the edible, the high-tech and a spiffed-up version of a classic home accessory.
Oura, from $299
The Oura Ring is a mainstay among athletes, CEOs and high-profile entrepreneurs. Wear it on your finger like a traditional ring, and it tracks biometric data to give you the lowdown on your activity, heart rate, sleep patterns, basal body temperature and more. The gadget’s five-day battery life helps justify the splurge.
