    4. A tabletop fountain you can stick on a side table or desk to bring some calming, relaxing background noise to your space. You can even adjust the rocks to change the loudness of the trickling water, depending on what you're feeling.

    5. A cross-stitch kit that'll allow you to sit back and breathe a sigh of relief, just like Bernie did on Inauguration Day. But seriously, cross stitching can be SO relaxing — I had a friend in college who did kits like this to help them focus during lectures!

    6. A Phillips Hue lightbulb you can use to adjust the ambient light in your room with an app on your phone! Now you can experiment with red-light therapy like that Instagram influencer you follow.

    7. Or, an actual therapy light designed to mimic a bright sunny day because these dark, gloomy days of winter are probably getting to all of us. Turn it on while you sip your caffeine for a relaxing, mood-lifting start to your morning.

    8. A scalp massager that'll stimulate blood flow and may even soothe your headaches. At the very least, it'll give you something to fidget with while you binge-watch your fav Netflix show for the millionth time.
