Tazo Calm Chamomile Tea Bags for Relaxation Gifts

There’s nothing like coming home from a loooong day at work and having something relaxing to look forward to.

In the past I’ve used bubble baths, face masks, yoga, and – no surprise here – other forms of exercise too. And I would still highly recommend all those things! But while these are all amazing ways to relax, I was curious about the other ideas out there. After looking all over the web, I’ve compiled a list of perfect relaxation gifts that I think anyone could benefit from using.

Just like these wellness books, the things on this would make excellent gifts (for others, and yourself!). They’re useful for anyone in your life who’s always going and pushing themselves to the limit. All of these items help remind us to slow down amidst the chaos and take a little time for ourselves. Let’s dive in!

All About the Aroma

Calming aromas can help us relax and help us sleep. Essential oils have soothing components; lavender in particular is a proven stress-reliever. That makes them perfect gifts for pretty much anyone.

Essential Oil Diffuser

These essential oil diffusers would be great for the yogi or meditator in your life, or just someone who needs to unwind after a particularly trying day.

Candles

Speaking of lavender, why not gift an aromatherapy candle?

Lavender Candle

As if candles aren’t relaxing enough, try out this appropriately-occasioned one on a close, good-humored friend.

Soy Relaxation Candle

Personally, my favorites are vanilla scented candles.

Scented Eye Pillow

Scented eye pillows are also extremely relaxing. They create a sense of comfort while blocking out harsh light. I first used a lavender one at the end of a yoga class during savasana and it was so so calming. This scented eye pillow from Amazon is just like that one.

Essential Oil Roller Ball

Give the gift of stress relief anywhere you go! I love the idea of having this essential oil roller ball stashed in a purse ready for use whenever, wherever.

I don’t care if it’s cliche, a good bath is the ultimate form of relaxation. Just lay back and close your eyes? Sign me up! Here are some gifts to take baths from just nice, to perfect!

Epsom Salts

These epsom salts come in four scents. Besides just smelling nice, bath salts also do wonders for your skin.

Ambiance is everything. What we surround ourselves with matters.

The Little Things

Stress Less Cards

Now these are the perfect gift for someone with anxiety that can strike at any time of day. These stress less cards from Amazon have advice and reminders to just breathe and relax. Stashed in a purse or bag, these cards are easily available whenever an anxiety attack is approaching. Even for those without anxiety, this gift provides a lovely reminder that life isn’t always about going going going.

Adult Coloring Book

Adult coloring books are a new craze that I totally am on board with. Completely empty your mind about anything other than coloring in the lines and enjoy beautiful pictures, like the ones in this book of a cute little town. p.s. It’s also a printable so you can download it immediately, making it a great last minute gift!

My Two Favorites for Relaxing

My two all-time FAVORITE teas are Tazo Calm Chamomile and Twinings Winter Spice. Order them from Amazon and pair them with a great mug – you’ve got a stellar gift anyone would love.

Humorous Mug

I love a mug with a funny or inspiring saying. This mug is potentially perfect.

I’m Thinking of You Gifts

Pura Vida

While sending thoughtful notes to people is extremely sweet and uplifting, there’s nothing quite like a concrete daily reminder that someone’s thinking of you.

During a recent hard period in my life, my mom sent me a pura vida bracelet and ring as gifts so that I could wear them every day and know my family was thinking about me. It’s an incredibly comforting thought. The ring she got me is in the shape of a wave, so it’s also a reminder to “go with the flow” despite what the day brings. I absolutely love it and would highly recommend giving these simple yet beautifully designed pieces to others.

Box of Sunshine

Possibly my favorite idea on this list is this Box of Sunshine Gift. What a thoughtful way to let someone know you’re thinking about them and to brighten their day!

Box of Sunshine Gift

That’s all I got for now! Bookmark this page and keep these items in mind as Christmas approaches. They would all make excellent gifts during a season that can often be stress-filled. When the weather is dreary and cold, it’s nice to have something comforting to boost your spirits or to look forward to.
