    29 Things For People Who Almost Never Take Time For Themselves

    Maybe these things will make them take a breather. May. Be.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A 12-pack of under-eye gel masks fit for a pampering sesh that'll perk up their dark circles — even if it's when they're chugging coffee and packing kids' lunches in the wee morning hours.

    2. An overnight lip mask they can just apply like lip balm and then reap the moisturizing benefits come morn! They could even keep it by their bed so they can do the nightly ritual after they've tucked themselves under their toasty covers! (That's what I do with my night lip mask.)

    3. A gorgeous line-a-day journal they'll feel inspired to fill, unlike the four regular empty (but beautiful!) journals they have decaying on their bookshelf.

    4. A faux-fur throw that'll feel luxurious (without the matching price tag) so they can nuzzle into this while they watch the game, read a book, or just rest their eyes for a moment. OK, like two hours.

    5. An argan oil hair mask as a beauty bandage for the babe who keeps having to skip salon appointments because life happens.

    6. A super comfy seat cushion in case they log lots of hours sitting in a subpar desk chair, driving, or they just experience back pain.

    7. Or a memory foam pillow to lure them into actually sitting down on the couch for a spell.

    8. And a foot massager they can use once you've lured them to the couch. Or while they pay bills. Or while they're working! So many great sitting possibilities.

    9. A mojito-inspired Homesick candle for them to light as they burn the midnight oil (even though you wish they wouldn't!). Here's to doing what you have to do now to get to those actual poolside mojitos in warmer weather.

    10. A box of Cadbury chocolate bars if your overworked sweetie unwinds with GBBO but has neither the time nor the energy to assemble such concoctions.

    11. An infusion pitcher they can use to make "spa water" with cucumbers or other cut-up fruit. They forget to drink enough water and it's time for a change!

    12. Or if chopping fruit and putting it in a pitcher still seems like something too time-consuming for them, a water bottle marked with a hydration schedule might help them increase their H2O intake. Bobby Boucher would be proud.

    13. Cozy joggers that'll be a stylish step up from their go-to sweats without sacrificing comfort.

    14. A birthstone pendant necklace for the person who doesn't have an aversion to jewelry, but never finds the time to plan out *which* piece to wear with each outfit. This'll be a gorgeous lil' go-to!

    15. Aromatherapy shower bombs that'll be perfect for the person who doesn't have time to draw a bath but really treasures the few steamy minutes of shower time. Unlike that box of bath bombs, these will actually get used!!!

    16. A 15-pack of soothing sheet masks might just prove to be the easiest dose of beauty self-care they do, even if it's just for a few minutes while the baby naps!

    17. Or a butt sheet mask that'll make them laugh when you give it to them. Cue to a few days later when you receive an "I love this thing" text.

    18. And if you're feeling especially generous, BuzzFeed's splurge-worthy Birchbox can give them the tools they need to treat themselves. The bubble sheet mask is gonna be so fun!

    19. Moisturizing socks they only need to wear for 20 minutes to feel the silky smooth benefit down to, in, and around their toes. After all, they're toe socks!

    20. Or perhaps some adorable reading socks for a plush feel, even if they don't have time to actually read while wearing them.

    21. A phone cleaner/charger the person who's on the phone every waking minute — even in the bathroom stall at the office!!!!! — would actually use.

    22. A rosewater spray they can keep on their vanity or desk for a mid-day moisturizing mist that'll make them feel fresh as heck. And not in the "what is this fresh hell" kinda way when they look at the latest nonsense to land in their inbox.

    23. "Buck naked" boxers that won't pinch, stink, or make them sweat so they can concentrate on all the selfless acts they have on their schedule instead of weighing whether they have time for an underwear change post-work.

    24. A ~relaxing~ tea in case they are forever sipping some free office tea and you want to treat 'em to something that isn't that free green tea that seems to be contributing to their sleep problems. (It me.)

    25. Or a *customized* reusable Starbucks mug as a nice lil' luxury that already fits into their caffeinated routine that has no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Or ever!

    26. A The New York Times Mondays crossword puzzle book as something to concentrate on instead of a screen. Just a few minutes a day looking at this bad boy instead will feel like a total treat.

    27. A weighted eye mask packed with cooling beads for a face-conforming fit to shut out the world for a spell because once they get into bed you wish immediate and deep sleep upon them.

    28. An aromatherapy roll-on stick to use on the go when lighting a candle as a relaxing lil' ritual just isn't in the cards.

    29. A weighted blanket to help them go from full throttle to complete relaxation once it's time to take a nap or go to sleep for the night. Seriously, encourage some restorative naps!
