    1. Bath bombs so you can soak your mood away until you are the human equivalent of a prune.

    These bath bombs are about the size of a tennis ball and are made of all-natural ingredients. They range in scent and will not stain your bathtub.

    Promising review: "I love the individual packaging. The labels are very easy to read and tied with colorful ribbons. They smell great. I used GALAXY today and it has a nice smell of spice and flowers. The bath bomb left my skin feeling very smooth and moisturized. The color didn't stain my tub either. I will definitely be ordering again!" —Billie Jean 5

    Get 10 from Amazon for $19.98.

    2. An avocado heating + cooling pad to snuggle with if you're in the need of warmth, or to lay across your forehead if the knowledge of Monday approaching has you working up a sweat.

    Urban Outfitters

    This pad is filled with natural buckwheat grains and lavender. To heat, put in the microwave and to cool, put in the freezer!

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29.

    3. A scalp massager for use in the shower that'll be so soothing, you'll forget Monday even exists.

    Sunday? I don't know her.

    Promising review: "I cannot explain how good this feels when you're using it! It relaxes you, and for sure is better than just using your fingertips to shampoo your hair. It reaches down to your roots to shampoo and massage. I can tell you right now that my hair has never felt smoother than after I started using this product. I would definitely recommend this!" —Romie Patal

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in two colors).

    4. And since we're not just about scalp massages, these balls that can be used on your back, arms, and legs to relieve tension, help aching muscles, and improve blood flow.


    These balls should be used carefully! If you find using them causes too much pain, stop and speak to a health professional.

    Promising review: "These are perfect! I have been experiencing pain and kinks in my neck for years now, ever since having children. Randomly came across these while shopping for something else and I could not be happier with my purchase. So easy to use and right away I felt relief. This will be something I use on a regular basis to keep my back and neck from hurting. The balls are made of a good quality rubber and are the perfect size for my back." —laurie percival

    Get two from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three color ways).

    5. A wine subscription box that'll send (at least) three bottles of wine to your home per month. You'll take a quiz about your taste preferences and then ~viola~ it's booze o'clock baby.

    At the end of your quiz, you'll be presented with a mix of white and red wines. You get to choose how many you want of each. BTW, they also have rosé options available.

    7. Affirmation cards filled with inspiring and positive messages to remind you that yes, although it may be Sunday, you have the ability to power through.


    Promising review: "I’m obsessed with these cards. They are about the size of a coaster. They say a lot of insightful, powerful things that speak to your heart. They are made of beautiful colors with a smooth, shiny finish on them. Exactly what I was looking for." —Lindsay C.

    Get them from Amazon for $14.37.

    8. Organic hemp oil made from the full hemp plant (leaf, stalk, seeds, and flowers) to aid with sleep. To use, fill the dropper fully and release the liquid under your tongue to absorb.

    Promising review: "I had tried another hemp oil before to help with sleep and I didn't notice a difference. But with this oil, I noticed a difference almost immediately! I had a much deeper sleep and found it easier to stay asleep. Before this hemp oil, I used to wake up and stay awake for quite awhile in the middle of the night. Now I sleep through the night and it feels AMAZING! The first night I took this oil, I had some vivid dreams, but found that didn't last long, just a heads up!" —cocalla

    Get it from Amazon for $17.09.

    Get 15 pairs from Amazon for $17.48.

    13. A Crock-Pot so you can make the most comforting stew with zero effort. Sorry Jack, we still stan after your infamous TV tragedy. RIP.


    I've owned a Crock-Pot for quite a while now and absolutely love it. It's so easy to use and makes the most delicious meals. This past weekend I made chili since the temperatures outside are beyond chilly. Once you buy your ingredients, you really just dump everything in and set your timer. Some recipes call for slight prep work, but it's truly minimal. This Crock-Pot has a countdown clock so you can see exactly how much time is left for your meal. You can cook on high or low (your recipe will instruct you which), and once that cook time is over, the Crock-Pot will switch to "keep warm." It's that easy.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.49+ (available in six sizes).

    14. A ClassPass membership if you're the type of person that needs to move to release anxiety. Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't get Sunday Scaries, they just don't.


    If you sign up right now, you'll get a FREE 1-month trial. Check out my full review of ClassPass here! Spoiler alert: I love it.

    Chronicle Books

    Get it from Amazon for $12.46, Barnes & Noble for $12.75, or a local bookseller through IndieBound.

    19. A sex toy to provide a little TLC. This one is so quiet, it defines discrete. Enjoy!


    Promising review: "I’ve had my Lelo for about three months now and I’m so happy I splurged. I can safely say I’ve gotten my money’s worth from it already! I’m not a fan of normal vibrators and clitoral stimulation is what works for me, so when I heard of the Sona, I figured why not give it a try. Some of the settings are quite intense, but others are just right. All you need is a few minutes with it on the right spot and that’s it. Prepare a day off in advance because you’ll want to use it again and again!" —Elchen

    Get it from Lelo for $99 (originally $179, available in three colors).

    20. An organic cotton bath towel because a post-shower nap is probably the best thing since sliced bread. This one will get softer after each wash. Magic.


    These towels are super absorbent and low-lint so you can forget those annoying fuzzies that show up all over the place.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line sold exclusively at Macy's for $16+ (wash, hand, and bath towel available in six colors).

    21. A Homesick candle to remind you of your home state, (hopefully) one of the most comforting places in the entire world.


    Promising review: "I got this candle as a gift for my friend who recently moved from Northern California to Colorado. He's been homesick and I thought this candle would be the perfect gift. It came in a cute black box. The candle is a nice size and does not have a lid. The candle smells really good. He LOVED it and even started to tear up after smelling it. He said he had no idea how it worked, but it smelled exactly like home. It is packaged very nicely, smells amazing and is a thoughtful gift." —Pen Name

    Get it from Amazon for $30 (available in all 50 states).

    22. A weighted blanket that literally mimics the weight of a hug. It can help battle insomnia or feelings of restlessness.

    Promising review: "This blanket does everything exactly as advertised. I got it for my husband's birthday. He suffers from occasional anxiety and often slept with pillows on his body. I debated for a while as it's not cheap, but it is WORTH the price. Thanks to the quilting, the weights don't shift around. It conforms perfectly to the body." —MKPersisted

    Get it from Amazon for $63.50+ (available in 10 sizes/weights and six styles).

    23. Dark chocolate covered pretzels so you can treat yourself to a heavenly blend of sweet and salty. You deserve it!


    Let me warn you... these are addicting. They are beyond delicious, and provide a nice crunch along with the rich flavor of dark chocolate.

    Get a 22-ounce bag from Amazon for $17.99.

    24. Microfiber cloths designed to be gentle so when you start that Sunday cleaning raid to settle your nerves, you'll be wiping away grime with a gentle, non-abrasive surface.


    Get a 24 pack from Amazon for $12.81+ (available in larger packs).

    25. And finally, a copy of Marie Kondo's Spark Joy, a guide to tidying up so you can live a more organized, stress-free life. And have something to occupy your fidgety hands on a Sunday night.


    Promising review: "Wow, a great read and great book. Now my entire house sparks joy. This books really helped me to declutter and organize. It really helped me to detach from all those things I was hanging onto because I felt I really needed the sentimental feeling. I really got to understand that some things make me really happy, and many others do not, and I do not need to hang on to everything I have. They are other, healthier ways to have things and keep them around. This is a really touching and helpful book. It's very motivational, full of interesting strategies, and most of all, supportive and understanding!" —Carmen R Gonzalez-Mendez

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+.
