    43 Things To Help You Unwind After A Long Day Of Being The Best

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A diamond painting kit to get your mind off of your ~real-life~ problems and focus on making Stitch look fab and sparkly instead.,

    Promising review: "This was my first diamond painting and it is absolutely adorable. It took time, of course, but was very relaxing. The adhesive, both for the pen and sheet itself, is great. I had no issues and even used the pen adhesive for another set I bought somewhere else (you won't use all of it on this set alone). The diamonds are opaque and round-cut, easy to place, and reflect more noticeably in natural light as opposed to artificial. I would recommend you display your finished masterpiece where the sun shines on it!" —LexCo

    2. A color-changing essential oil diffuser that'll be perfect if you work from home and could use some aromatherapy throughout the day., Brittany Gibson / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed writer Brittany Gibson has this diffuser and is a fan! She said:

    "This little essential oil diffuser sits near my desk all day (and night). It really makes a difference in my apartment and my friends are always complimenting how nice it smells! The choice of LED lighting is nice too, especially since it has adjustable brightness. Don't forget to pick up some essential oils for it!"

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four colors).

    3. A set of 25 squishy toys designed literally to help relieve stress so you can keep one for yourself and distribute to your equally stressed coworkers.


    Promising review: "These are SO CUTE! They are super soft and squishy. They have a decent scent. They don't leave residue anything on when your playing with them. They are fun to play with and they help release stress and anxiety." —Yesenia Cuevas

    Get them from Amazon for $11.49.

    4. A supportive bath pillow, a must-have for anyone who desperately needs to soak the stress of their day away.

    a white bath pillow

    I have this pillow and it's great! Super easy to clean, stays put on the back of my tub, and makes taking a bath that much more enjoyable.

    Promising review: "My husband bought this for me because I LOVE taking baths; it's a nice way to relax and unwind after a long day, but I've recently had some health problems which has caused me to lose a lot of weight and taking baths has become excruciating. Due to the lack of extra cushion back there now, lying back on the porcelain tub was extremely painful on my spine/bones, and I had resigned to the fact that I wouldn't be taking baths anymore. But, GOOD NEWS, this pillow is a dream come true. I wish I had always had this pillow. It's soooo comfortable! I could almost nap in the tub (but don't!)." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $26.79+ (available in two sizes and four colors).

    5. A massage roller you can use to apply acupressure on the bothersome parts of your feet to make them feel fantastic before heading off to bed. It's so easy to use you can roll away without taking your eyes off of the latest episode of The Great British Baking Show., Amazon

    Promising review: "I’ve been having so many issues with my feet the last few years. My feet hurt so bad, it’s made me become a hermit. I’ve had tendinitis in both and now plantar fasciitis. I get foot cramps all the time. After just one day with this under my desk at work, I feel a huge difference. My feet no longer feel tight and painful. They feel tingly — in a good way. I look forward to being able to go for a walk and not have to rest along the way. I know it’s meant for feet but I may try it out on my calves. I also love that it’s small, looks nice and doesn’t slide around. I highly recommended this for anyone, foot issues or not, if you sit a lot. Nice way to keep the blood flowing when stuck at a desk." —Vanessa Thomas

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    6. A stainless steel ring that doubles as a fidget spinner that'll help keep you calm, cool, and collected in stressful times.


    Promising review: "I've had this ring for about two weeks now and just had to write a review. I've had the nervous/bored habit of picking at my fingers since I was a kid. I can't remember the last time I've not had at least one nail bed torn up and bloody. For people with similar habits, I can't recommend this ring enough. It's a great, non-distracting way to redirect fidgety behaviors. I've worn it every day since receiving it and for the first time in years, I have intact nail beds! Every time I catch myself starting to pick at a dry patch of skin or uneven cuticle on my finger, I rotate the ring a few times and the impulse disappears." —KGL

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes 4–12 and 12 styles).

    7. A 12-inch foam roller you'll surprisingly get a lot of use of even if you aren't a gym rat. It's perfect for loosening the muscles in your back/legs after sitting at a desk all day (or stress-induced tension).


    I have this little foam roller and use it almost every night. I roll my spine over it and it releases all the tension in a series of very satisfying cracks. Get one — add it into your pre-bedtime ritual!

    Promising review: "My chiropractor recommended I buy the 36" version of this for some daily routine back stretching to do at home. This product has been amazing for stretching, and massaging sore muscles throughout my back and shoulders. I feel very supported by this roller and have had no issues with it thus far. I weigh 200 pounds and have yet to damage this roller after weeks of use. Overall very pleased with this product. And at such a great price, I honestly can't find a single negative remark to note about it." —Luke Marrs

    Get it from Amazon for $10.49+ (available in four sizes and five styles).

    8. A roll-on migraine stick to nip your pain in the bud before it gets out of hand and ruins a perfectly good day.

    Katy Herman / BuzzFeed

    I actually bought this for my best friend when she was starting to get so stressed out about her daily migraines. It helped immensely!

    Promising review: "I can't give this product enough stars! I have suffered from debilitating chronic migraines for years. Prescription medications, while effective, usually make me extremely tired and result in rebound headaches, so I rarely take them. This oil blend is especially great for the days when I have a migraine but am unable to stay home and rest. This takes the edge off the pain enough that I am still able to go about my day and do everything I need to do. I also love the way it smells. I sometimes roll it on my wrists just to enjoy the energizing fragrance." —Lacey V

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    9. A set of bath bombs you can toss into the tub to unwind after a particularly stressful day and watch your worries ~fizzle~ away.

    a bunch of bath bombs

    Promising review: "I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE BATH BOMBS!!!! I think they are fun in terms of the packaging, the names, the colors and the little 'extras' mixed in the bombs. I personally feel they are just the right size and love the colors. The first time around I was concerned about the color part but no worries — doesn't stain the tub. They are very moisturizing for the long tough New York winter we are experiencing this year; my skin tends to be dry but using these bath bombs on a regular basis has helped to keep my skin nice and soft. And the number of bath bombs in the set along with the price is just right!" —Pamela

    Get a set of 12 from Amazon for $22.61.

    10. An ice roller, which is said to help decrease under-eye puffiness, minimize fine lines, and shrink pores — as well as to relieve headaches and sore muscles. Your skin will thank you.,

    This is my favorite thing to start my pampering with, but I also use it in the morning before I apply any makeup. All you have to do is pop the separate roller piece into your freezer and you'll be ready to de-puff in no time.

    Promising review: "I use this ice roller in my esthetician treatment room after extractions, peels and/or waxing. My clients love it! It drastically reduces inflammation and swelling...thereby leaving the skin in a much healthier state than if I didn't use it. I actually prefer this to my magic globes because of the ease of rolling over the skin. Globes tend to skip/jump if the skin is not properly lubricated with a lot of product. I can apply a calming colloidal oatmeal masque (in powder form) or other setting masque and simply roll right over it. If it is too chilly for your client...simply put a damp esti wipe on the skin as a barrier. Very easy to clean and disinfect between clients." —Chris DeFelice

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in nine colors).

    11. A Casper down duvet insert, because there are few things as wonderful as coming home after a crappy day and wrapping yourself up in a cozy comforter.

    the plush, white duvet insert

    With a duvet insert you can also switch out the design of your duvet itself whenever the mood strikes!

    Promising review: "After every Casper product I buy, I get more and more excited to sleep every night. The duvet is no exception. Initially from the change, I was warm from the duvet but after the second night, the temperature has been perfect. 10/10 would buy again. PS my dog loves it as well too." —Tony Wang

    Get it from Casper for $197.10+ (available in three sizes and two weights).

    12. A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite with an anti-glare screen so any bookworm can happily virtually flip through the pages of a novel while basking in the sun.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    It's the thinnest and lightest Kindle Amazon has released to date! And — as is made abundantly clear by the photo above — it's 100% waterproof. I'm typically a hardcover girl through and through, but I recently gave the Kindle a whirl. It's very convenient to be able to slip it into any bag without it taking up much real estate and the transition between pages is very smooth.

    Promising review: "I love the fact that I can read on this Kindle in both daylight and dim light conditions. It is so light and compact, which makes it easy to hold, easy to travel with, and the battery lasts forever. I love it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99 (available in four colors).

    And check out our full breakdown of the Kindle Paperwhite here.

    13. Or a subscription to Book of the Month, so when you finally score a moment of free time you can spend it reading something new.

    a stack of books
    bookofthemonth / Via

    I was gifted a year of Book of the Month for my birthday one year and to date it is one of the best things I've received. There are few things as satisfying as getting truly lost in the pages of a good book — and it'll provide for a great distraction for your mind. Each month you'll be permitted to choose one of four books, all of which are different genres. Then the book you selected will be delivered to your door. Magic! Excuse me, I need to re-up my subscription.

    Get a three month subscription from Book of the Month for $49.99.

    14. Blackout curtains to help you get to bed early and catch the recommended amount of Zzzs like any proper adult. Or, feel free to use then to sleep until 2 p.m. on a Saturday — no judgment here., Amazon

    Promising review: "These blackout curtains are awesome. If not for these my baby won't be taking longer naps during the day. Since I got these I was able to establish a routine with my little one. These curtains will not make the room pitch black so I have to tape them to the wall to make the room darker. It gets the job done and that is good enough for me. When my baby takes his 45 min or an hour nap, I can do housework, shower and take care of our dog. If you have a baby who won't nap longer than 15 mins, get these curtains! Trust me, it will change your life! I love them so much that I ordered a couple more for the grandparents' house." —E. Champion

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in six sizes and nine colors).

    15. A knit weighted blanket you've probably seen while indulging in a scroll of your Instagram feed — it's weighted naturally with a layering technique instead of with artificial filling. And it looks SO cottagecore chic!

    a dark green woven weighted blanket

    I have one of these and it's my favorite thing to unwind with at the end of the day. I have an anxiety disorder and can often find myself feeling really worked up and typically have physical symptoms like feeling restless. The weight of this blanket helps me to soothe my body and loosen up a bit.

    Promising review: "This blanket is great. The material is soft and comfortable. The weight is perfect. What I love the most is that there are no beads used for the weight. I had a previous weighted blanket that the beads came loose after just a few weeks making the blanket useless. This blanket makes you feel like you are wrapped in a soft hug. I sleep so much better and do not wake up as often. I highly recommend this blanket." —Jennifer M.

    Get it from Bearaby for $269 (available in 15, 20, or 25 pounds and six colors).

    16. A cottage-themed coloring book you can use to peacefully unwind after the work day — no screens needed for this brand of fun!

    Amazon, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    I recently bought artist Jen Racine's The Modern Cottage coloring book as well as her Time to Hygge coloring book and it's been a delightful way to spend my time before bed! The images are rather soothing and perfectly on-theme for fall and the upcoming winter. Highly recommend! I've been using a set of classic colored pencils to color in the pages, since it seems markers would bleed through.

    Promising review: "Nice and simple designs, exactly what I was looking for. Sometimes, adult coloring books have so many intricate designs that just looking at them stresses me out...which is the opposite of the whole idea there. I love this one though, because the designs are very cute and simple. It’s a joy to color them, as it should be. Even my boyfriend colored a page!" —WallyGal

    Get it from Amazon for $6.97.

    17. A Wreck This Journal that'll encourage you to get more in touch with your artistic side, great if you've always been intimidated by trying to fill out the blank pages of boring old regular journals.

    Promising review: "I’m 17 and I loved this. In the intro it says the page instructions are all up to interpretation, so if it says 'spill your drink' or something you can take that literally or choose to paint on it with something such as tea or coffee that’ll look like brown watercolor. I love that it’s full of bizarre prompts but that you have wiggle room if you don’t want to do anything too crazy. I would recommend this if you’re just looking for something fun or if you’re going through some challenges this is really helpful to distract/express/push yourself!" —Marlee

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    18. A Minnie Mouse plush featuring a removable 3-pound pouch to help calm your nerves and soothe your anxieties so you can drift off to dreamland sooner rather than later.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, shopDisney

    I recently received one of these and love it so much it hurts. As someone with anxiety, I've learned how magical it can be to find a weighted item that is both cute and functional — this Minnie Mouse plush checks those boxes. It's soft, snuggly, and the weight inside of it helps create an appropriate amount of pressure when laying down with it. Highly recommend for my fellow anxious Disney Adults.

    Get it from shopDisney for $39.99.

    19. A bag of powdered cheddar, because if you're like me the moment anything bad happens (big or small) in my day I just want to curl up with a classic "boxed" mac 'n' cheese and de-stress. Perhaps not the healthiest coping mechanism, but it's mine.

    review image of super cheesy mac and cheese next to bag of powdered cheddar and pasta

    Other reviewers like it in their potatoes, bread, and scrambled eggs.

    Promising review: "My 6-year-old son is super picky with his mac 'n' cheese (as in, would only eat Kraft) so when he had to go gluten free it was one of the things he missed the most. We tried all of the prepackaged gluten-free ones and he hated them. We found that he liked Barilla-brand gluten-free elbow pasta so I needed to find a gluten-free cheese to go with with it. This was a hit! I mixed it with a little milk and butter, and he ate two bowls. This is real cheese, all natural ingredients, and they suggest keeping it refrigerated. I'm glad we finally found a replacement for his mac 'n' cheese!" —Naomi A. Dejesus Howard

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two flavors).

    20. A Theragun Mini, ideal if you often find yourself slumped over and sitting in weird positions for hours upon hours.

    Therabody / Via

    I have one of these bad boys and it has honestly been a game changer. When I posted on my Instagram that I had received one, the responses I got were WILD. People are PASSIONATE about this gadget and now I understand why. I've used it on the arches of my feet and have way less pain than ever before. The nozzle at the end contracts at a high speed (think, a tiny punching machine) that surprisingly doesn't hurt but leaves your body buzzing in a good way. In my opinion, it's worth the money and it actually does work.

    Promising review: "I received a Mini as a gift from my daughter last Christmas and LOVE it. It helps my sore muscle, aches and pain a great deal. It’s small, lightweight, and not noisy; I take it everywhere I go. Bought one recently as a gift to my brother for his birthday so we can spread the love and help his aching body." —Po W.

    Get it from Therabody for $199 (available in four colors).

    21. An elegant bottle of rose-scented bubble bath from Kylie Skin that you can break out on those terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad days. Soak away the stress and pretend, for a moment, you're actually Kylie; a billionaire with 246 million IG followers.

    Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed, Kylie Skin

    I'm shamelessly invested in anything Kylie (or Kim, for that matter) creates, because their products have never failed to disappoint me. My sister gifted me this bottle for my birthday, and I am obsesssssed. BuzzFeed writer (and fellow Kardashian-Jenner product lover) Ali Faccenda also has this delightful product. She said:

    "I am obsessed with taking baths and am a sucker for a good salt soak, bath bomb, or bubble bath. This bubble bath is such an elevated adult version (sorry, Mr. Bubbles), and smells like a lush bouquet of roses (aka my favorite flower). You will not regret this purchase. The bottle has lasted me a long time, and a little goes a long way! Ask me if I’m rationing this bubble bath because it smells THAT good."

    Get it from Kylie Skin for $26.

    22. Or a bag of Dr. Teal's bath salts to sprinkle into a hot bath and help yourself relax from head to toe while also nourishing your skin with vitamin C.

    a blue bag of dr teal's glow and radiance epsom salt
    drteals / Via

    Dr Teal's epsom salt is an important part of my pre-bedtime ritual. I'm a bath aficionado and have tried many (many) products in my tub — nothing compares. It smells heavenly, relieves any aches and pains in my body, and helps me to relax overall.

    Get it from CVS for $7.79.

    23. A set of two blooming tea flowers that'll transform your standard morning cup of tea into a beautiful ritual you'll want to Instagram every day.

    two containers with one filled with pink foil balls and the other with purple foil ball and a clear tea cup with tea and a blooming yellow flower inside
    The Grommet

    To brew the tea, just pour three cups of boiling water over an unwrapped ball, and wait for three to five minutes for the tea to bloom. The scents you can choose from are Brilliant Berry, Coconut Escape, Lush Lavender, Powerful Pomegranate, and Regal Jasmine.

    Promising review: "This is nifty and cute. My wife and granddaughter enjoyed sharing some tea time together." —Ralph

    Get it from the Grommet for $19.95 (available in six flavors).

    24. A ball of "therapy dough" you can knead, roll, and pull to your heart's content while soothing your anxieties and stressors at the same time.

    person's hand with ball of dough
    Quirky Ginger Uniques / Etsy

    This is a best seller from a woman-owned small business run out of Colorado — the reviews speak for themselves!

    Promising review: "Nice smell, loved the texture! Does not get under my nails and relieves stress quite well. The color is beautiful as well and I look forward to using this more often! Thanks :)" —Anna

    Get it from Quirky Ginger Uniques on Etsy for $7.50 (available in eight colors and seven scents).

    25. A scratch paper art set that'll take you right back to your elementary school days but also provide a fun way to decompress after a stressful day.


    Promising review: "Ahhh I love these so much, takes doodling to a whole new level! It's an anxiety relief like you wouldn't believe. Plus my kids also get a kick out of them. These are so worth it and I'm going to be keeping these stocked up!" —Katie Toomey

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    26. A set of Moon Globes you can leave in your fridge or freezer then break out when your skin is in need of some *chill time*. A must for anyone who is prone to puffy under-eyes., Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    Kiramoon is a woman-owned brand whose founder, Lindsey, went on a mission to make skincare and its packaging reflect the joy it brought her at the end of a long workday. With every Kiramoon purchase, they donate a portion of the proceeds to Bring Change To Mind, an organization dedicated to ending the stigma surrounding mental illness.

    BuzzFeed writer Ali Faccenda has tried these babies out and loves them:

    "Okay, not only are these incredibly fun to look at (they're literally a magical, unicorn-majestical, work of art), they feel so amazingggggg after a long day. After much bloating and a puffy forehead and tense jawline, these are such a relief to use. Skincare and self-care should truly always be this fun. These are an upgrade from facial rollers and WAY cooler."

    Get them on Asos or from Kiramoon for $42.

    27. Fuzzy slippers to stylishly keep your tootsies warm — these babies are water resistant so you can totally also wear 'em on a quick trip to the grocery store to grab extra snacks for your snuggly night in.


    My mom is a slipper fanatic and Dearfoams have always been her go-to. We've literally been buying her them for as far back as I can remember — and I've finally figured out why! They are *so* soft and cozy in addition to be affordable. What more could you (and your toes) wish for?

    Promising review: "I wanted to replace old slippers since I'm wearing them much more while working from home, and I'm so glad I settled on these! I've hardly taken them off in the several days since they arrived. They're perfectly cozy and keep my feet warm without being too hot on more mild temperature days. They look great too, I love the tan suede look. The soles are solid enough there's some support, and I can run outside to the mail box or trash can in them. But they're not super bulky, so they're still comfy to wear around inside all day." —Tigs1781

    Get them from Amazon for $49.94+ (available in women's sizes 6–11, in regular and wide widths, and six colors).

    28. A Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite you can count on to help you kick back and relax after a long day — I gotta suggest you dive into a soothing indie game like Spiritfarer or Stardew Valley for the ultimate cozy day vibe.

    Nintendo, Stephanie Hope / BuzzFeed

    There is an entire TikTok account dedicated to cozy gaming if you need more inspiration of what to play this season! I personally just finished Spiritfarer — which, IMO, has Studio Ghibli vibes and is both devastating and beautiful at the same time. Stardew Valley is another classic you'll definitely enjoy hunkering down with.

    Promising review: "The Switch is Nintendo's best device since the N64. I use my Switch every day. I commute by train so this has been perfect for me. There has never been a handheld this good. The transition to and from docked mode is seamless. The battery life is also pretty decent. Overall, it is a great device. Nintendo's back!" —Arjun S. Kahlon

    Get it from Amazon: Nintendo Switch for $399.99+ (available in six styles), Nintendo Switch Lite for $199.99 (available in four styles and storage options).

    Learn about the difference between the two products with my breakdown here.

    29. Tea bags in a variety of whimsical shapes that'll make your cup of tea *that* much more exciting. Your evening spent at home reading just got a whole lot more fun.

    Tea Heritage

    Tea Heritage is a small business based out of Lyon, France, that sells adorable tea bagss.

    Promising review: "Delicious tea, beautiful tea bags. Such a treat!" —Becky McMahon

    Get them from Tea Heritage on Etsy: The dresses (available in three flavors) or the leaves from for $9.32.

    30. An obscenely comfortable Lovesac you will jump into once, then debate quitting your job so you can just enjoy its warm, snuggly, goodness 24/7.

    a model comfortably sitting in the middle of the lovesac
    lovesac / Via

    A few years ago my family and I chipped in and got my sister a Lovesac for her first apartment — it was quite literally her only request. When I say she's obsessed with this bubble of comfort that would be such an understatement. I never understood why she was so in love with it until I sat down in it myself. It feels like the biggest, most loving hug you have ever received in your life. The outside is *so* soft that you can't help but want to burrow in and sit in the chair forever.

    Get it from Lovesac for $600+ (available in five sizes and over 200 cover options).

    31. A rechargeable lighter that'll let you light every candle in your house to create the *perfect* ambience without concern you'll run out of lighter fluid.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    I'm obsessed with candles, so it was a no-brainer for my husband to gift me this surprisingly super fun gadget. It's really simple to use and charge, and it really works! I'll never have to buy another lighter again.

    Promising review: "This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, there is a weird crackling noise, but that's a super-minor annoyance. It's a super-intuitive device. Plug the lighter in with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don't know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it's awesome!" —Jee W

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    32. And a candle in honor of autumn for anyone who appreciates nothing more than the seasonal scent of pumpkin spice lingering through their home.

    a candle with an orange label on it that says "basic witch, pretty sure my blood type is pumpkin spice"
    Evil Queen

    When I tell you I am wholeheartedly committed to this candle brand I mean it. I was first introduced to them when I discovered their "OMG You're Engaged" candle in a boutique near my NYC apartment a few years ago. I've been gifting them to everyone I know (and myself) since. This small business is female-owned by an absolute badass who also writes poetry. My all-time favorites are the seasonal options — and this year's fall collection surely hasn't disappointed. Evil Queen recently went under a re-brand and the new labels are simply a 10/10. They still feature the sassy one-liners I've grown to appreciate but have a much cleaner look any candle fan will enjoy.

    Get it from Evil Queen for $22 and check out the entire fall collection.

    33. A U-shaped body pillow, because being single shouldn't prevent you from have an epic cuddle sesh while watching endless hours of Netflix.

    Yana Sleep

    Promising review: "Bought this for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves it!!! She loves how comfortable it is, how supportive it is, how it stays cool, and how you can practically sleep with it however you choose to. The only downfall…the pillow has taken my place! Lol!!" —Zo

    Get it from Yana Sleep for $199.

    34. A softly glowing cat that'll look purrfect on your nightstand and serve as both a ghostly companion and an awesome piece of decor.

    glowing cat light
    Apollo Box

    Get it from Apollo Box for $33.56.

    35. A variety pack of Doughp cookie dough you'll love for multiple reasons but mostly because it can be eaten raw or baked. Shout out to the fact it's made with heat-treated flour and no eggs 🍪.

    a bunch of pints of cookie dough

    This is the bestseller collection, which features chocolate chip, rainbow sprinkle, cookies and cream, and chocolate s'mores. I've tried Doughp products myself and can confirm they are freakin' delicious. They can be stored in the fridge as-is for four weeks or frozen for up to a year. BuzzFeed editor Bek O'Connell also loves this brand. She said:

    "I love Doughp! The cookie dough is so amazing raw, that's it's pretty rare for me to actually take the time to bake it. I love being able to keep a pint of Doughp in the freezer and always have the ability to bake a cookie or two when the craving hits. This is sure to be a hit with anyone who used to buy the Pillsbury cookie dough tubes from the grocery store and eat it like a Go-Gurt."

    Get a four-pack from Doughp for $34.

    36. A bar of chamomile-scented soap designed for sensitive skin and filled with vitamin E, shea butter, and olive oil you can count on to leave your skin feeling softer than ever.

    a bar of sudsy soap
    The Little Market

    Each purchase from The Little Market helps formerly homeless women at MADE by DWC in Los Angeles. If chamomile isn't your thing, there are an array of other soothing scents like lavender and peppermint.

    Get it from The Little Market for $12 (available in seven scents).

    37. A curtain of twinkle lights to make you feel like you're sleeping inside a magical fairyland. Who wouldn't want that?,

    If it were up to me, I would leave my Christmas lights up inside my home all year long. These twinkle lights are a great way to create that look without being overtly holiday themed. Tinker Bell would certainly approve!

    Promising review: "I saw a few pictures online of fairy lights with sheer curtains and loved the look. These lights in particular are perfect for what I was looking for. It gives off a warm, cozy glow and really adds a nice touch of oomph to the room." —NG

    38. A 48-pack of assorted teas you can treat yourself to in the morning to get motivated to endure the work day and to unwind with after a too-long meeting.


    Promising review: "There have been so many times where I wanted to try a tea but didn't want to commit to a whole box if I end up not liking it. If you find yourself in similar situations, this is a great way to try them out. I was surprised by how many I never had before that I liked. Even for those who aren't up for experimenting, this at least gives you a good variety just to have around the house. Would probably work well as a gift too." —Nuzzdad

    39. An embroidery kit for beginners that won't test your patience but'll provide you with a happy distraction and a pretty piece of art at the end of it all!

    Promising review: "I was very pleased. Came with everything you need. The colors are beautiful and it's a great little project to pass the time and ease anxiety. Thank you. Will order from seller again soon." —Lauren Constance

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    40. A hair scalp massager that'll quickly become your favorite shower accessory. You can use it to exfoliate and deep clean your scalp while applying your shampoo — it's a game changer.


    I have one of these babies and it really is wonderful. Not only does it make me feel like I'm really getting in there while I'm washing my hair, but it also recreates that feeling you get when your hairdresser massages your head while washing it. Ugh, so good.

    Promising review: "Love this product! About five days before I received it I dyed my hair at home. As some of you may know who do the same, it’s difficult to get the hair dye out of your scalp. I scrubbed my hair for days with my fingers and it seemed like everything was gone because the water ran clear. When I received the product I was excited so I immediately jumped in the shower to use it. To my surprise a ton of hair dye that was stuck on my head came off. Not only that, but my scalp feels breathable and clean. Definitely not greasy 24 hours later like regular shampooing would do for me. I would recommend this product." —Lisa Agro

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in three colors).

    41. A Buddha Board for anyone who loves an activity that'll help them zen out and get in touch with their creative side.


    I gifted this to my mom and it's been such a hit! All you have to do is fill the stand with water, dip the bamboo brush in, and start creating! It's surprisingly super soothing and is great because you don't have to think long and hard about what to draw since it disappears anyways! It's a great practice in the "art of letting go" and is honestly a lovely way to spend an hour unwinding.

    Promising review: "I work at a college in an environment where I am stressed out a lot, but I also have a lot of stressed-out college students in my office! The Buddha Board is incredibly soothing to 'paint' on (only requires water and helps remind me that tough days will fade away just like my artwork does. Several of my coworkers have this in their office too. And, of course, it's great when you're not stressed out too — just fun to play with!" —Violet Kayjee

    Get it from Amazon for $37.95.

    42. A wine glass holder to post-up in your shower so you can unwind after a long day, sip on your favorite vino, and wash your hair at the same time.

    Promising review: "Bought this as a birthday present for my best friend. We often drink wine together and I know she often drinks wine in the bathtub. She loved this gift and thought it was quite entertaining and the perfect invention for her. If I had a bathtub I would be buying a second one for myself." —Ally Stage

    Get it from Amazon for $8.95+ (available in three colors).

    43. And a Real Housewives version of Guess Who that'll leave you and any other fans of the show giggling while giving clues like "she detested staying on the lower level" or "she was once insulted by sprinkle cookies."

    I have this game! Me and my sister can't wait to play it together and see who knows the most about Bravo celebs. LowerLevelGames is a small business based out of New York that sells tweaked pop culture boardgames. 

    Promising review: "Nostalgic flashbacks, trivia exercise, and REAL Housewives fun... This game is a must-have for any Real Housewives franchise fan. Whether you’re playing to wind down or playing to turn up, it’s worth every penny — 100%!" —Adam Ferrari
