    3. A monthly bill tracker so you can stay on top of your finances — and set aside money for big expenses and small treats to yourself.

    4. The Big Activity Book For Anxious People, because sometimes a good laugh is enough to distract you from your anxieties. This activity book mixes fun and humor with educational tips for coping with your anxiety so you feel a little less alone about your worries.

    9. A pack of motivational stress balls that'll help you power through any problem that's stumping you. They're also great for maintaining your focus and act as a sensory distraction so your feelings of stress aren't as intense.

    14. A gallon water bottle with motivational markers to help you stay hydrated in the midst of dry skin season. It's easy to forget to drink water while you're slaving away at your desk, but taking sips throughout the day helps your brain function at peak capacity.

    15. A pack of energy-boosting gum, because we have things to do and we'd very much like to skip the jitters and crash that follow a cup of coffee.

    16. Or, a cold brew maker if coffee is your lifeblood and you need at least three cups to get anything done. Skip the weak stuff in your office and head straight to this bad boy at your desk.

    17. And don't forget a sloth mug, because it's OK to take things slow sometimes. Sit back, clear your mind, and focus on enjoying your coffee.

    18. A fruity iPhone case to remind you that life is easy peasy lemon squeezy.

    19. A weighted blanket for helping reduce your anxiety so you can feel well-rested sometime this decade. This specific weighted blanket comes with two covers: one that'll keep hot sleepers cool and another that'll retain heat so you're cozy and warm.

    20. A digital alarm clock that'll actually help you get up on time because you're not fooling anyone with your current phone alarm situation, which involves you hitting snooze multiple times before you finally get out of bed.

    21. A mousepad notepad to keep your list of to-dos front and center.

    22. A multitasking grater prep bowl so you can whip up a week's worth of meals fast. (Sorry, no more ordering delivery four nights a week!)

    23. A set of drawer organizers, because you're probably wasting too much time in the morning trying to find a pair of matching socks. Use this instead and you'll be able to grab your socks and go forth and kick butt.
