Did you find the perfect gifts for people with anxiety?
Now that you’re armed with these links and information on gifts for anxious people, what will you try first?
Did anyone specific come to mind as you went down the list, read the descriptions, and followed the links?
Or were you thinking, “Wow, I’d love that,” more often? No judging here (since we love every single item on this list).
But just as misery loves company, so do inspiration and solidarity.
So, let these ideas inspire you to make a list of the people in your life who might benefit from one or more of these gifts.
And if one of them asks, “Has it helped you?“ you can only answer that question if you’ve tried it yourself. So, if it helps persuade your loved ones to try something, there’s no harm in trying it out yourself first.
Otherwise, you can tell them, “No, but hundreds (or thousands) of other people love it, and when I found it, I thought of you.”
You could even say, “I saw this and thought of you, so I bought one for each of us. That way we can both try it and report back to each other.”
That’s teamwork all over, and it makes trying out these gifts more fun for both of you.
May your generosity and compassion influence everything you do today.
