    1. A helpful to-do list to help you plan out your day by different categories. When it's all written out and orderly, it doesn't seem so daunting!


    Promising review: "How did I make to-do lists without this pad? I love this to-do pad. It has everything organized so well and I always start out my day jotting down what I need to get done in each section. Not sure how I lived without it in the past! Will definitely order more for myself and as gifts for friends who need to organize a bit better. Brings me such satisfaction to know that I accomplished everything I needed to do. High quality and well-thought-out." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.70 (also available in "All Out Of," "Self-Therapy," and other options).

    2. A gratitude journal so you can celebrate the good days and then look back on them on the bad days.


    Promising review: "Just started using this journal after being in a bit of a funk at the start of this year. I researched many different journals but this was the only one that I felt was simple, that didn't make too many 'demands' on my time, that was straightforward — in short, exactly what I was looking for. It's a simple concept, and I've only been doing it for a week, but I find myself looking for things to be thankful for and adding lines below the three provided and writing in the margins...all because I want to." —silkeymilkey

    Get it from Amazon for $6.08.

    3. A unicorn external battery so you can stop worrying about your phone charge and focus on your book about magical power sources and where to find them.


    Get it from Amazon for $13.39.

    4. A really cussing good coloring book — the only red you'll be seeing is the red crayon you're scribbling with.


    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    5. A teeny-tiny Etch A Sketch sure to make all your doodles — and problems — seem small and manageable.

    6. A CBD body scrub so you can go from WTH to NBD in mere minutes.

    Urban Outfitters

    The scrub is made with sugar, coconut oil, vitamin E, sunflower seed oil, and 100 mg of CBD.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $40.

    7. A colorful mug with Richard Simmons on it to remind you it's OK to step out of the spotlight when you need some you-time.


    Get it from WhateverMugs on Etsy for $17.99.

    8. A gravity blanket ready to make you feel like you're all bundled up, without the stifling heat that comes with lots of covers.


    It's thought to also be helpful for those with anxiety, OCD, autism, and sensory processing disorder. For best results, choose the blanket that weighs about 10% of your body weight.

    Promising review: "I never write reviews but thought I should after buying two of these blankets! I haven’t slept through the night for almost 6 years, thanks to a difficult pregnancy and baby. It trained my body to only sleep a couple hours at a time. I tried everything, and am shocked that a weighted blanket worked so magically! From restless legs, insomnia, anxiety, it is an instant fix! I have it draped over me while I write this and it feels amazing!" —Jenny

    Get it from Amazon for $59.50+ (available in six sizes and six colors/patterns).

    9. An LED diffuser that hits you with both lights and nice relxing scents so you can be transported away from all your problems.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $65 or what looks to be the same model from Amazon for $44.97.

    10. And a bottle of essential oil that smells like your home state, just in case you want to be transported to somewhere specific.

    Homesick Candles

    They also come in cities, countries, and specific moments. A lot of these scents are sold out due to the holidays, but the following are still available: Washington, Washington DC, Arizona, New Orleans, Nashville, Love, and Holiday.

    Get it from Homesick for $9.95.

    11. Introverts Retreat — a subscription service that sends you a book by a female author along with some self-care items, so you can be properly pampered while ignoring your problems for a bit.


    Some items you might get with the book include: bath bombs, candles, snacks, coffee, tea, socks, puzzles, scrubs, jewelry, coloring books, and more.

    Get it from Cratejoy for $13.33+/month.

    12. A bottle of Poo-Pourri so you can stop worrying about public bathrooms and leave smelling like roses.

    Promising review: "I have the standard size, a travel-size one, and an extra one to refill all my travel-size bottles. I keep one at home and one with me at all times. I was always too self-conscious about pooping in any public or private bathroom unless it was my own. I would hold it in no matter how long I'd have to wait. Eventually my body got so used to using the bathroom irregularly that I would sometimes go only twice a week. This bad habit put me in so much pain that it landed me in the hospital. When my friend heard about Poo-Pourri, he ordered it for me. It masks almost all of the scent. It has helped me regulate myself by allowing me to relax enough to go no matter where I am and who's around. Little by little I got comfortable enough to say, 'When you gotta go, you gotta go,' and put my health before worries about the stranger in the next stall." —AriQuinn

    Get it from Amazon for $9.39+ (available in eight sizes and 21 scents).

    13. The Little Book of Life Hacks — an illustrated guidebook filled with little tips and tricks that will make you feel like a dang life champion.


    It's by Yumi Sakugawa who you might know from this really cute comic about having a platonic crush on someone.

    Promising review: "This book is like a cool, comforting breeze. Not only is it packed with tons of useful advice for living an authentic, stress-free, and magical life, the artwork is dreamy and beautiful. I've long been an admirer of Yumi Sakugawa's art, and this book is a must for any of her fans. As someone who has struggled with a poor self image, Yumi's section on fashion and dressing to please yourself is so incredibly helpful to me. Whenever I feel down about myself, all I have to do is see her gorgeous drawings of women of all shapes, expressions, colors, etc. (bunny women!), I feel so much more empowered and, yes, beautiful. I also love her section on decorating your home, since I've recently downsized to a very small apartment. I've added every single one of her other books to my wish list and can't wait to read them all...but this book will always remain a particular treasure." —Echo

    Get it from Amazon for $12.89.

    14. A plant-based, hypoallergenic bubble bath with a relaxing lavender scent to soak away the day's troubles.


    Promising review: "The lavender scent is VERY strong but this bubbles up very well and my skin felt moisturized afterwards. There were still bubbles in the tub 30+ minutes later." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (also available in two other scents).

    15. And hello, a wine holder so you can sip Chardonnay amongst your bubbles like some kind care-free diva.


    Promising review: "I 100%, no, 1,000,000% LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!!! It adhered to my shower wall and stayed put. It's nice to relax in the shower and have my wine in there with me instead of on the stand. Thank you, I have recommended this to several wine-loving friends!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in six colors).

    16. A cleansing face mask that will leave your face feeling so refreshed and glamorous, it'll be like striking gold.


    This face mask says it's good for all skin types, especially oily with large pores. To use, apply a grape-sized amount in an even layer all over your face and gently massage into your skin, leave it on for 15–20 minutes, or until the gold color turns white, and then wash off with warm water. It helps to reduce dead skin cells, dirt and toxins, and minimize pores, firm skin, and make your skin feel softer.

    Promising review: "For real, I should have bought this mask the first time I heard about it. It is wonderful and reasonably priced for such great quality. After my first use, my skin felt very hydrated and bouncy. It is an instant staple in my cabinet." —Witherwings

    Get it from Amazon for $11.78.

    17. A super-popular foot massager with deep-kneading rotating nodes — all your worries will just slip away when you turn it on.


    This beauty has deep kneading, vibrating, rolling, and heat functions, and is set with five different pressure settings that'll perfectly hit your pressure points.

    Promising review: "This is truly the most amazing and wonderful foot massager I have ever had the extreme pleasure of using. This thing gives an awesome massage with very good pressure. My feet feel better than they ever have. I highly recommend this!" —KatK

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99.

    18. An under-desk hammock so you can put your feet up and take a breather when work gets out of hand.


    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    19. A nail polish holder that hooks onto your hand, because your de-stressing activity should be as easy as possible.


    Promising review: "Great little device! I like to do my nails just before I go to bed so that I can lay my hands on top of the sheets and let them dry as I go to sleep. The problem is, I would try to hold the bottle between my raised knees, and it would slip and slide around. With Tweexy, I can do my nails anywhere, without having to squeeze the bottle between my knees, or needing to have a flat surface to keep it on." —Suzy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 11 colors).

    20. A tiny mopping robot so dirty floors are one less thing you need to worry about.


    Promising review: "I'm a cat owner who has had Roombas and loved them for years (both the cats and Roombas), and was pretty sure I'd like this little mopper. It has three modes (dry mop, damp mop, and wet mop). I use it in wet-mop mode after Roomba vaccums or I sweep/Swiffer the floors, and Braava still manages to pick up some cat fur that we missed because it's small and thorough. It does an especially nice job in bathrooms because it can actually clean behind the toilet!" —HissyFitz

    Get it from Amazon for $169.99.

    21. An unreasonably cuddly throw blanket that you should only buy if you plan on hibernating underneath it until April.


    I have this blanket and haven't moved from under it since I got it. It's silky soft on the bottom and thickly furry on top. I can't even begin to describe how perfectly snuggly this thing is.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $98 (available in three colors).

    22. Or a more budget-friendly fleece blanket that reviewers say has an equally impressive level of snuggliness.


    Promising review: "Seriously, y'all...if you're looking for a soft and unique blankie, then look no further. This item ranks high up there among my favorite Amazon purchases. The 'underside' is a more traditional blanket weave while the outer is the fantastically soft and 'hair' shag job you see in the pictures. When I'm truly chilly, I tend to flip the traditional side down to cover me up all nice and snug-like. When I want to feel like I'm being draped in a decadent blanket of the gods woven in wispy, (faux) newborn baby hair...I flip that soft sucker over and bellow a sigh of passion (too much?)." —Bitcoin Zeitgeist

    Get it from Amazon for $35.98+ (available in fives sizes and 18 colors).

    23. A pair of sheepskin insole inserts to make any pair of shoes feel like you're walking on air.

    Promising review: "Nice quality shearling insoles. I have LL Bean house moccasins which are several years old and I just place a new insole into them each year. These are very nice and make my lovely old moccasins feel like new again. I’ve been using them every day since I got them last November and so far they are holding up very well." —Bianca K.

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes 6W–14M).

    24. A Nintendo Switch Lite that'll let you hole up and play roughly one bajillion different fun games. It's lighter and more portable than the classic Switch so you can get an escape no matter where you are.


    It's really cool that the Nintendo Switch can hook up to your TV or pop out and become a portable device buuuut that thing is super heavy! Sometimes my fingers will go numb while playing. That's why the Lite is great for people on the move. Read more about why it might be a good idea to get the Lite even if you already have the classic Switch. Oh, and if you need some game recs, I recommend Breath of the Wild, Pokémon Sword, and Luigi's Mansion 3.

    Get it from Amazon for $199.50+ (available in four colors and with the option to include a memory card).

    25. A Birchbox x BuzzFeed collab box filled with all our favorite beauty goodies so you can pamper yourself without having to go through the stress of picking anything yourself. We got you!


    The box has a value of $200 but costs less than half of that! It comes with items like Smashbox's Photo Finish foundation primer, Kevyn Aucoin's The Precision liquid eyeliner, Amika's Soulfood nourishing mask, and more. Click through to see all the awesome products that come in each (beautifully designed, I might add) box.

    Get it from Birchbox for $62 (and get $10 off with the code BUZZFEED).

    26. A rainbow doormat so you can see something bright and sunny every time you leave or return to your home.

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $24.33.

    27. And a narwhal pin to help you see your anxiety in a less threatening way.


    Get it from SugarandSloth on Etsy for $9.48+ (available in two clasp options).
