These Calm-Inducing Gifts Are the Total-Body Exhale We Could All Use Right Now

Buy the gifts. Wrap the gifts. Bake the cookies. Visit the family. Find an outfit for the holiday party... and the list goes on. With so many un-checked to-do-list boxes vying for your attention, it's easy to get wrapped up in the whirlwind of the season without taking any time for yourself to actually enjoy it.

If you—or anyone on your holiday shopping list—can relate, this roundup of calming presents is for you. Whether you're shopping for friends, relatives, or coworkers who are feeling just as hectic about the holidays as you are, consider gifting them something that will allow them to sit down and breathe a sigh of relief—during December and beyond.

From soothing Charlotte's Web CBD products to other tried-and-true calming presents like cozy weighted blankets, essential oil diffusers, creative meditation stickers, and more, you can bring less-stressed vibes to everyone on your list.

And don't forget to pick up something for yourself, too. Because a self-gifting moment that allows you to pencil in some me-time among all the festivities definitely counts as self care.

10 calming presents to help your loved ones invite some tranquility into their lives.

Brooklinen, Votive Candle Set — $59.00

What’s better than the peaceful ambience of flickering candles? When the scent of the candle is infused with essential oils that are meant to match (or shift) your giftee’s mood as they burn. Pairs perfectly with a fuzzy blanket and a relaxing evening snuggled up on the couch.
