    It comes with a pump to keep it ready to be pummeled again and again!

    Promising review: "I work in a tech office and things were getting pretty stressful. We jokingly talked about getting a punching bag. When I went home and told my husband about how stressed my coworkers were and how we need SOMETHING to take out our frustrations, he jumped on Amazon to see what he could find. He stumbled across this little desktop punching bag and had it delivered to my office. IT'S AMAZING! Five stars doesn't even BEGIN to describe how awesome this punching bag is!!! The suction cup design is perfect β€” you can really wallop this thing and the suction cup doesn't move! And the spring is heavy-duty so the bag bounces right back to you! We placed it on the corner of a table in our training room and every time someone walks by it, they give it a good whack! It's the best money we've ever spent on Amazon." β€”kn50443

    Get it from Amazon for $18.97.

    6. The Unofficial Harry Potter Insults Handbook β€” it's full of magic words for expressing exactly how certain Muggles make you feel.

    Promising review: "These are hilarious. As a Slytherin who works in IT, I like to think a lot of these in my head when dealing with clients." β€”Trisha

    7. And a sweet-scented cat squishy resembling a certain boy who lived that you can give a good squeeze every time you're reminded of the plot of Cursed Child.

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised with this! It's soft, cute, slow-rising, and smells good." β€”Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    8. A classic stress toy friend with pop-out features who's just bursting to be your go-to confidant when your day has been less than perfect.,

    Promising review: "I was introduced to this wonderfully stress-relieving toy by another satisfied owner who's had it for years. She loaned it to me at a time of great stress and it came in very handy, truly relieving anxiety. I liked it so much that I bought one of my own. He's a favorite around my house for relieving stress and anxiety. I'm a special education teacher in a girls' high school and many of my students have anxiety along with learning disabilities and other emotional issues. I got them a similar one and my students love him and use him frequently to relieve their stress, to stop biting their fingernails, etc. The amazing thing is that it doesn't distract them, and some of them have ADHD! It's a great toy and stress reliever. It would also make a terrific gift and it's definitely not for just kids." β€”CoolGramma

    Get it from Amazon for $6.47.

    9. A dual-stimulating, waterproof nine-speed vibrator, because come on, we all know that there are some frustrations that require a little something more than a stress ball for relief. πŸ˜‰

    It comes with a USB charging cord, so having to deal with changing batteries will be one less frustration.

    Promising review: "WOW. I was speechless at how discreet the packaging was β€” it's simple and classy. The product itself came with a charger and a simple intro sheet. The product is sleek and absolutely gorgeous. When charging, the logo at the bottom turns red until fully charged, which is a convenient addition. Now about the modes, oh gosh, the modes. They're much, much stronger than most toys. I was blown away. The dual motor gives both the tip and the 'bunny' an extra oomf. The bunny has a 'nose' that digs into your clit, a feature other vibrators I've had have lacked. I would give this all the stars possible!" β€”Sophie

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    10. Wreck This Journal, a super creative book that allows you to do just that. Each page has instructions and space to do a different delightfully destructive thing β€” from spill your coffee on it to throw the journal in the air.,

    Over 3,000 reviewers love this as a stress reliever, boredom buster, and creativity kickstarter!

    Promising review: "This book has exceeded all my expectations so far. I suffer from very bad anxiety and depression and have been using this book as an outlet and as somewhat of a therapy tool. The pages all have different assignments or tasks on them that push you out of your comfort zone and create a wonderful feeling of freedom when they're done. Page one said 'crack the spine' which I had a very hard time with, but with each speed bump of ripping out pages, folding, cutting, crinkling, messing, glueing, and sticking, I feel more and more free and I love this book that much more every time. Some tasks, like 'color outside the lines' are very easy, while others push you to be weird, like 'collect dead bugs.' It definitely forces you to think outside the box! I highly suggest this book to anyone who needs a creative outlet for emotional reasons, or just wants to have a good bit of fun! I'll be buying another to replace it and start all over when I'm done." β€”AlyMcMuffin

    Get it from Amazon for $12.84.

    11. A self-inking "WTF?" stamp you can enjoy smacking down with gusto on things for which there simply is no other response.

    It includes a double-sided ink pad inside the stamp that you can flip when one side runs out, so you'll have plenty of "what the fucks" to give.

    Promising review: "I'm loving this stamp. It works on notes from teenagers, lawyers, soon-to-be-ex-husbands and more! I even used it to stamp a paper bag of my neighbor's dog's poo and left it on her front door with a security picture of her dog pooping on my lawn and she has not been a dog fecal issue for me since. :)" β€”WendyGrace

    Get it from Amazon for $8.29.

    12. Super satisfying coffee-scented fidget putty for those days when not even your daily cup of joe could save your morning.

    Get it from ThinkGeek for $24.99 or check out other scents (like spa, ocean, and citrus) on Amazon.

    13. A snarky roll of middle finger washi tape so you can really stick it to whoever made the terrible mistake of pissing you off.

    Get it from JulieAnnArt on Etsy for $4.50.

    14. An empowering sweary coloring book that'll allow you to turn your venting into a work of art.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this adult coloring book. It's by far my favorite one I have ever owned and it truly is a fun, relaxing experience to use it. I enjoy coloring, feeling stress-free, and swearing. I like pretty things that include the F word. I like getting to illustrate my feelings and this book is top-notch. The pictures are amazing and not overly intricate, but detailed enough to produce fun images that are definitely fridge-worthy. This coloring book (along with a chilled glass of wine!) is now my go-to stress reliever and I fully intend to make life my bitch. I'm not going to let life make me feel so drained and stressed out. Instead, I will happily color my stresses away!" β€”liltreeclimber

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    Get it from badgerfacebeauty on Etsy for $7.99+.

    17. The hilarious Smack a Sack, a scrotally effective punching bag with two removable stress balls for when life is test-icle-ing your patience.

    I know, I'm making too many puns, no need to get testy with me! I'm having a ball!

    Promising review: "This is an amazing stress reliever. I got it as a present for my girlfriend who works at a car dealership and deals with some people that are a bit of pain. The stress level of our conversations went way down... at least on her side...haha." β€”Roman_924567

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    Some tips are more active, like going for a walk or practicing a breathing exercise, while others are mental, like gratitude and positive thinking exercises.

    Promising review: "I really like these cards. This deck is a bit smaller than a deck of playing cards, which makes them easy to carry in your purse. There are a lot of great stress reduction ideas in here that are helpful." β€”Suz Burke

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99.

    The best part? 50% of proceeds go to a civil rights organization, and you get to vote for which one at checkout. BECAUSE YOUR VOTE MATTERS, PEOPLE!!!!!!

    Get it from Lipslut for $19.95.

    22. An exercise pedal to keep under your desk and help you release all the nervous energy in your fidgety legs.

    It's collapsible, so it's easy to transport from home to office, and you can also use it for an arm workout! The little display screen provides oh-so-satisfying statistics like RPM, calories burned, time, and total revolutions.

    23. A Dammit Doll emblazoned with a truly beautiful poem encouraging you to beat the shit out of it.

    Promising review: "I'm loving having my Dammit Doll! Whacking something inanimate with it when I've been pushed to my limits has been satisfying, and a great source of stress relief.
