Calm app for iOS and Android

We all know someone who’s overwhelmed with stress or has trouble sleeping. Mindfulness app Calm could help bring them inner peace via its timed meditation sessions, breathing exercises and selection of bedtime stories designed to help them drift off in no time. The paid subscription unlocks more than 100 sleep stories, some of them narrated by celebrities (including Harry Styles, Matthew McConaughey and Kate Winslet); music tracks for focus and sleep; masterclasses on self-compassion; and mild movement video lessons. £28.99 annually

HOTEL Chocolat Classic Christmas Luxe box

Chocolate is believed to trigger our brains to produce serotonin, the neurotransmitter that makes us feel happy. So why not offer loved ones the gift of happiness with an entire box of chocolates? Hotel Chocolat’s Classic Christmas Luxe box comes with a selection of 37 (yep, 37!) rich pieces, all in festive shapes and indulgent flavours. Think classics such as the Espresso Martini Truffle, the Nut Crunch Brownie and the Dark Solid Tree, next to new additions like the White Penguin, which is high on cacao butter for that extra-creamy texture. £37.50
