    All it takes is a few sprays on the pillow before bed! A little goes a long way, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $59.99.

    2. This elegant hand-blown nebulizer that'll atomize pure essential oils into micro-fine particles that distribute quickly and evenly, even in large rooms! That means there's no water to grow mould or get musty (less mould = less cleaning = less stress!).

    The base is made of solid hardwood (no yucky, toxic plastics), so it's environmentally-friendly and long-lasting, too. You can even include some essential oils as part of the gift!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $124 (also available in black).

    3. These noise-cancelling headphones will be the best (and fanciest) way of literally blocking out all stress. With three levels of sound cancellation technology, they'll have everyone saying, "Construction noise while I'm writing on a deadline WHO?"

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    They're Alexa-enabled, too, making them not only wireless but totally hands-free.

    Get a pair on Amazon Canada for $379 (available in three colours).

    4. This state-of-the-art meditation headband that's like having a personal meditation guide. Using a bunch of sensors, it measures brain activity and customizes nature sounds to fit. A calm mind might result in soft rainfall, while an active mind could cause thunderstorms or roaring waves.

    The headband also connects to the Muse app, so tracking meditations and brain activity is super easy.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $169.19.

    They're also great for soaking feet that just off a 12-hour shift and are just really tired, okay.

    Get a three-pound bag on Amazon Canada for $7.98.

    The weird egg shape is the perfect shape for hands. They're also great as exercise tools for people with mobility issues!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99+ (available in three colour sets).

    7. This waterproof scalp massager that's like having a tiny, personal, battery-operated masseuse in the shower. The rubber tips gently vibrate to build rich shampoo lather, exfoliate the scalp, and help stimulate hair growth. Plus it feels sooooooo good!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    I'd get some extra AA batteries here, so that they never run out of juice!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $15.97 (available in four colours).

    8. This migraine-relieving headband that uses cold therapy to reduce swelling, inflammation, headaches, migraines, fevers, stress, and sinusitis. Whew! That's a lot — all wrapped up in a soft, fleecy little cap that can be slipped over the head. It perfectly contours to the head, too.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Three removable gel inserts are made of a non-toxic, medical-grade liquid that can be popped in the fridge or freezer to chill them down.

    They're also packed with Epsom salts for maximum soothing and relaxing properties.

    Get a pack of two citrus and two lavender cubes on Amazon Canada for $19.99 (available in four other packs).

    The sleek, tablet-like design takes up very little space, which is great for those with teeny-tiny condos! Plus it blends seamlessly into virtually any decor.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $59.95.

    11. This gel bead eye mask that can be used hot or cold for migraine relief, puffy or dry eyes, or just as a great addition to a nighttime routine. The adjustable strap means whoever wears it will always have a perfect fit.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    The back has a silky-soft, plush lining that keeps eyes feeling comfy and cozy.

    12. This percussion massager that'll relieve pain and tension in their entire body. It's handheld and cordless, so it can be used on hands, feet, back, legs, or literally anywhere else on the body! Plus it has five interchangeable heads for a customized, stress-busting experience.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    This electronic masseuse delivers around 3,600 pulses per minute to break up knots, tension, and pain quickly and effectively.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $54.99.

    13. A weighted blanket that's like giving someone a hug — but one that lasts forever! Weighted beads are encased in smooth, soft cotton that simulate physical contact for more restful sleep, and deeper relaxation.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    Weighted blankets should always be purchased with the user's weight in mind — to be most effective, a blanket should be between 7-12% of the total body weight. If you're in doubt, or if they're new to weighted blankets, I'd start off with 7%.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $99+ (available in six colours, two sizes, and three weights).

    14. This three-in-one foot bath that'll soothe tired and achy feet. It bubbles, it vibrates, and it heats the water to a relaxing, comfortable temperature — the only thing it DOESN'T do is require an expensive visit to a spa! There are even acupressure nodes and rollers on the bottom to add a massaging element.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    It fits feet up to a men's size 15, so you really can't go wrong this one!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $83.99.

    15. This juicy pomegranate loose leaf white tea that's jammed full of antioxidants and refreshing fruit flavours, and tastes just as good hot as it does iced. It's also low in caffeine, too, so it won't keep anyone up at night.

    Get 50 grams on Amazon Canada for $10.99.

    16. This jade roller will be instantly recognizable for all skincare aficionados. The rolling motion of the aventurine stone is said to help with reducing puffiness, eliminating tension, shrinking pores, and absorption of skincare. It doesn't hurt that it looks pretty as heck, too!

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    The roller also comes with a gua sha scraping tool (also made of aventurine) that can be used for massaging other parts of the body.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $27.99.

    17. This body pillow that can replace multiple pillows, and makes snuggling up in bed or on the couch about a bazillion times easier. It's science. It might have been designed with pregnant people in mind, but it's also awesome for anyone who just wants to sleep better (but who just CAN'T. FIND. A. COMFY. POSITION.).

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    The slipcover is also removable for easy care.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $99.99.

    18. A hot water bottle is a classic home remedy for stress, sore muscles, menstrual cramps, lower back pain, or even as a fever remedy. This one even comes with a fleecy cover for an extra cuddly vibe.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    The medical-grade PVC is also suitable for cold relief (think ice compresses for minor injuries), while the wide-mouth spout keeps the liquid in the bottle — and not all over the floor.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99 (available in one-litre bottles, and in eight colours and patterns).

    19. A white noise machine that will emit 24 soothing, sleep-inducing nature sounds to drown out traffic, snoring, tinnitus, and even loud neighbours. Doesn't that sound nice?

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    It's an ideal item to keep in a child's room or nursery! It plays gentle lullabies to rock little tots off to dreamland, while a gentle nightlight gives just enough visibility to not trip over furniture in the middle of the night.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $49.99.

    20. And some dark chocolate with sea salt that'll satisfy their sweet tooth, while also filling them with iron, magnesium, antioxidants, potassium, and a BUNCH of other healthy goodness. Don't @ me, it's science.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    The rich, creamy dark chocolate and crunchy flakes of sea salt are the perfect sweet-salty experience.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $2.93.
