Some self-care gifts to consider
Hot water bottle
Get yourself a spunky hot water bottle, which does not feel great when you after overworked yourself, but the bottle is very handy for period cramps as well. However, if your period cramps and pains are too much to bear, you should report the problem to a gynecologist doctor in Islamabad.
Extremely painful periods can be a sign of health condition like endometriosis, hence have your doctor look into the problem.
Tension has become a part and parcel of life. With so many avenues of stress, you also then need an outlet for stress. Massage is a great way to remedy this problem; it helps in relaxing the muscles and releasing the tension knots that cause much tension in the body.
However, it is not always possible for you to visit a spa. The cost notwithstanding, there is also the matter of finding time for it. So, you can also gift yourself a hand massager. Newer ones also come with heating, so to further relax your muscles.
Dark chocolate bundle
Chocolate is often perceived to be not good for health, and that much is true only if the chocolate is milk or white, since it has high sugar content.
However, dark chocolate is very good for health. It is rich in antioxidants and great for the heart. Hence, if you want to pamper yourself and show yourself some love, get yourself a dark chocolate bundle.

But getting into the mode of working out can be hard. Sweating does not come easy to everyone. For to motivate yourself, you can gift yourself cute workout clothes. You can also get yourself a funky yoga mat for not just practical reasons, but to make your workout session more fun.
Comfy period paraphernalia
Dressing up when on your periods can feel like a big chore. Bloating, PMS, cramps all combine, making you want to do nothing but make yourself comfortable. For these days, have a comfortable pair of PJs handy.
If you have heavy flow alongside, investing in a great pair of period panties can feel good. These are made from absorbent material, so there is no risk of leakage.
