27 Cozy, Relaxing Gifts For Anyone Who's Always Stressed Out

As a perpetually stressed person, I cosign all of these gift ideas.

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.

What a year! The holidays are finally here! And while we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so we suggest shopping as early as you can.

Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

1. A warm, cozy faux fur blanket because one can never have too many blankets, especially when they're this soft and beautiful. Plus, a beautiful throw adds a nice touch to any room.

2. Aromatherapy shower steamers to make their shower time a relaxing experience they look forward to all day. This gorgeous set includes a variety pack of six shower melts, including lemon grapefruit, ginger lily, and other dreamy, relaxing scents.

3. A bottle of roll-on eye serum they'll really appreciate if they're constantly traveling, working late nights, or just feeling really overwhelmed lately, all of which can put your skin through a beating. It's available in two styles: a brightening serum to even the skin tone and leave it glowing, and a moisturizing serum to deeply hydrate and soften the undereye skin.

4. A luxurious silk eye mask complete with an adjustable strap to help them finally get that good night's sleep they've been talking about for so long.

5. A mesmerizing moon lamp that simply radiates cozy vibes and adds warmth to any room. It'll take their much-needed relaxation time to the next level.

6. A pair of lavender-filled slippers so they can relax *and* warm up their ice-cold feet at the end of a long day — these ultra-soft slippers can actually be microwaved before putting on to act as a mini heater for their feet.

7. A velour reading pillow to make their quiet reading time even more relaxing by providing support for their neck, back, and arms. It's filled with shredded memory foam that molds to their shape for soft, yet ~supportive~ comfort.

8. A cashmere-like thick scarf so they can take that cozy, comforting feeling with them every time they have to trudge outside their door this winter. Plus, it looks *and* feels expensive, despite costing less than 20 bucks.

9. A weighted blanket that applies just the right amount of pressure to help them relax and get a good night's sleep. The 100% cotton cover keeps it breathable despite the added weight, a major plus for people who tend to sleep hot.

10. A chai lover's gift set packaging four glass jars of hand-blended teas with a metal steeper. From Sweet Monsoon to Lavender Nights, the heavenly aromas and flavors of these blends will help your loved one wind down after a long day.

11. Or a holiday-themed Vahdam Teas gift set with a variety of award-winning loose-leaf teas packaged in a gorgeous box.

12. A embroidery beginner's kit they can reach for when they need something to take their mind off work or a stressful situation. They'll have a cute piece of decor to hang in their home afterward, and you might even introduce them to their new favorite hobby.

A few of the available embroidery patterns available - this particular three-pack focuses on flowers and butterflies.

13. LED curtain string lights, basically crucial for relaxing evenings at home. They can turn off those harsh overhead lights and enjoy the dim, calming effects of these fairy lights while they curl up and binge their favorite show.

14. A padded foam pillow held tight with strong suction cups to make relaxing in the bath *actually* relaxing (no more pretending to relax while your head rests on straight porcelain).

15. And an adjustable bamboo bathtub tray so they can take everything they need into the bath — a glass of wine, a good book, a candle, maybe some snacks — and basically never leave.

16. Sherpa-lined sweats that are basically like wrapping your legs in the *fluffiest* bathrobe. These are worthy of being a wardrobe staple, whether they're working from home, running errands, or exercising outdoors.

17. A vegan bath soak that uses just one ingredient — organic bladderwrack — to detoxify and replenish skin for a relaxing soak.

18. A 52 Lists for Happiness hardcover journal with weekly journal prompts so they can find a quiet moment to reflect and find the little joys in their jam-packed busy life.

19. An attachable aerator to bring out all the aromas and nuances of their evening glass of wine. Finally, they'll taste all those flavors described on the label (whether it's a $10 bottle or something fancier).

20. Cozy, fleece-lined socks because one is never too old to wear cute animals on their feet. The grippy rubber soles will also prevent them from sliding around on the floor in these, so they double as slippers!

21. A pet-safe coconut-soy wax candle free of paraffins, preservatives, and other toxic ingredients so they can rest easy knowing neither them nor their fur babies are breathing that stuff in. Its soothing scent — combined with the gentle crackling of the wooden wick — makes this candle a relaxation staple.

22. A metal essential oil diffuser that's way cuter than the typical plastic options out there. They can use it with just water for a cool humidifying mist or add a few drops of their favorite oil for a soothing fragrance.

23. Heart Talk, a book filled with poetry, affirmations, and wisdom delivered in a straightforward, digestible manner that's easy to pick up and read in small chunks. They can pick this up and find an empowering quote on practically any page.

24. An Ember Mug2 for anyone who always pours a hot cup of coffee and then drinks about half of it before it goes cold. This smart mug lets them set their preferred temperature and then keeps their drink consistently hot all day long using the included charging coaster (or 1.5 hours with the cup on its own!).

25. An ergonomic footrest to majorly upgrade their desk setup, whether they work from home or in an office. It's a simple thing, but they'll be way more comfortable throughout the day, which can help them feel better and less stressed overall.

26. A Birthdate candle offering a custom scent blended with natural oils for their birthdate, complete with a character reading on the label based on astrology.

27. A sunset lamp with 16 different colors so they can change the vibe of the room based on their mood. It can be rotated 360 degrees, with multiple lighting effects and brightness options as well.
