On that note, here are some awesome Himalayan salt gifting ideas that can swoop your loved ones off of their feet this holiday season –
Himalayan salt basket lamps
Himalayan salt basket lamps have taken over brick and mortar as well as online gift shops completely in recent years.
Most of the time, these come in a form of a metal basket that would contain chunks of Himalayan salt, and somewhere among it all, there will be a (more than twenty watts strong) bulb that when plugged in, will act as a functional lamp.
This is perfect for people who spend a lot of time looking at computer screens, or any other artificial light sources that emit harmful blue lights. This lamp emits amber colored light. The heat from the lamp ionizes the salt molecules that ultimately freshen up the air inside a room in no time.
These lamps are perfect for –
- Living rooms
- Bathrooms and
- Even office cubicles.
Himalayan salt pillow
The Himalayan salt pillow is yet another popular gifting idea that can help your loved ones to get relief from issues like –
- Chronic aches and
- Joint pains.
These pillows can be heated up or made ice-cold and used either as an ice pack or a hot pack. Upon heating, a quality-assured, genuine Himalayan salt pillow, will relax tensed muscles and when used as an ice pack, it can reduce inflammation.
Your loved ones might be skeptical at first when it comes to trying out these Himalayan salt gifts but in the end, there is no harm in doing so. Sure there is no scientific evidence that can back up all the claims related to Himalayan salt but in the end, there are lots of people out there who have benefited from these gifts.
