I cannot proclaim enough the value of self-care. Self-care revives us, relieves stress, clears our heads, and helps support our overall health, immunity and happiness.

However, we get so caught up in doing and providing for others that we neglect our own wellbeing. Moms especially are notorious for putting themselves last. We assume that our time would be better spent on other less “selfish” tasks.

Hate to break it to you, but that thinking is incorrect.

When we care for ourselves, we have more energy, think more clearly, and have more to give: physically, mentally and emotionally.

Nothing shows you care like showing the mom/wife/friend in your life that you value her happiness, peace of mind and well-being… or maybe even show yourself some love!

I have pulled together some meaningful and effective ways to give the gift of self-care. These all require little to no time commitments, don’t break the bank and most importantly, are available with Amazon Prime! So you can have the gift at her (your) door in no time!

No scheduling appointments, no hunting for a babysitter… just simple every day tools to help the mom in your life de-stress, refresh and find more peace & happiness.

Gifts Promoting Stress Relief and Happiness

Serenity Journal

Take my love, take my land… wait that it the wrong Serenity (pardon my nerdiness, I couldn’t resist). This guided journal is a simple way to connect with positive thoughts and promote… well, serenity.

Present, Not Perfect Journal

What I like about this journal is that it gives practical tips on how to be more present and mindful in way that keeps you engaged each time you open it. It’s part journal, part workbook.

Healing Stack Bracelets with Aromatherapy Diffuser

The SPUNKYsoul Lotus New Beginnings Stack Bracelet Set includes lava stone, green fluorite, and purple fluorite which are known to cleanse, heal and ground you. Plus, you can utilize the benefits of essential oils by diffusing a few drops on the lava stone.

Relaxation for Stress Relief

Eye Pillows

Heated eye pillows reduce stress, relax the face & mind, and can relieve migraines. The Bamboo mask is very soft and comfortable, but I am also a fan of the flax seed eye pillows from “Eye Pillow Vacation.” For those sensitive to scents, it comes unscented as well.

Soothing Sinus Eye Pillow

Lavender Flax Seed Eye Pillow 
Shiatsu Massager with Heat

Who doesn’t carry tension in their head, neck and shoulders when they are stressed? This portable shiatsu massager is perfect for home, office or car.

Aromatherapy for Stress Relief

 

If you don’t already know the benefits of aromatherapy on mood, immunity and well-being, click here to learn more. For relaxation, my favorite essential oils/scents to try are lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary and sandlewood. They can be used on their own or combined to create your own custom calming scent. Contact us if you gave any questions on essential oils or would like to place an order.

Aromatherapy Humidifier/Diffuser

This is my go-to to diffuse oil throughout my home. The aroma is dispersed quickly and effectively, but more importantly, there are numerous health benefits to using a humidifier (Learn More). Oils are not included.

Stress-Relief Aromatherapy Candles

The set comes in a variety of scents, so you can pick the most meaningful fragrence. However, I recommend the lavender/ eucalyptus combo if you would like to promote stress-relief.

Stress-Relief Aromatherapy Diffuser Gift Set

Fresh Eucalyptus, Sweet Spearmint, Lemon Peel & Clary Sage fragrance oil creates a sense of Calm.

Body Care for Stress Relief

Exfoliating Body Scrub

Made with essential oils and salt from the Dead Sea, this sensational scrub will leave your skin refreshed and smooth.

“Mini 2” Fascia Blaster

This tiny tools packs a wallop by restoring your body’s fascia/connective tissue. These tissues can retain toxins and even negative emotions (learn more).  It’s stress-relieving, body restoring, and cellulite reducing (not that that should matter)!

Coolife Fascia Blaster/Acupressure Roller

The Coolife roller is not as versatile as the mini 2, but is a nice option at a lower price point. It works great on large areas of the body: legs, belly, back and butt.

Bath Salts

I take Epsom Salt Baths to relieve soreness and relax me muscles. My favorite bath salts are Dr. Teals with lavender, eucalyptus and spearmint, and the pink Himalayan mineral soak.

Dr Teal’s 5 Piece Soothe and Sleep Bath Set

Set Featuring Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution, Pure Epsom Salt Foaming Bath, Ultra Moisturizing Body wash, Natural Sponge, and Gel Bead Eye Mask in a burlap gift bag.

Epsoak Bath Salt

Simple but effective. All the muscle relief benefits, none of the scents or frills.

Stress-Relieving Gifts with Humor

 

…because laughter is the best medicine! These gifts may seem silly, but they do all still have stress-reductive qualities.

Calm the F*ck Down: An Irreverent Adult Coloring Book

Coloring is a great stress-relieving activity, and the smiles & laughs will make you definitely help you calm the f*ck down. Just don’t forget the pencils when you order!

Dammit Doll

This aptly named doll is great for letting out your frustrations and inciting giggles. They even boast it being durable enough to take a firm squeeze or smack on your desk.

…and I wouldn’t be true to myself if I didn’t throw in my go-to when all else fails. CHEERS!
