Give the gift of self care with soothing gifts from Herbivore Botanicals, UGG, Theragun and more.
Let's face it: As much as we love the holiday season, it can be incredibly stressful. Between planning elaborate dinners with family and friends, hunting down the perfect gifts, traveling to see loved ones, and spending money on all of the above, it's easy to feel overwhelmed during the festive fanfare.
If you or a loved one need some help taking time for yourselves and unwinding this season, we've found relaxing gifts for everyone on your list. Whether you're shopping for the college student overwhelmed by exams, parents in serious need of some "me" time, or the workaholic who never takes a break, these products will help transform their bed, bath and even their body into a tranquil environment.
For the borderline insomniac, weighted blankets and soothing sheet spray are the way to go. For the working professional who's always slouched over the computer screen, a massage gun or shiatsu neck massager is sure to relieve some tension. And for those who never buy themselves anything nice, treat them to luxury candles and relaxing shower oils.
