18 Helpful Stress Relief Gifts For Stressed Out People

When you think “stress relief gifts,” what comes to mind?

You probably know some seriously stressed-out people (friends, family members, coworkers, maybe yourself) who could use something other than a quick pick-me-up.

And you’re racking your brain for stress relieving gift ideas, but maybe the only things that come to mind right now are those that provide an immediate but short-lived emotional high.

After all, when you’re physically starving, what do you usually go for?

Probably not the kale (if that ever sounds good).

So, it’s totally natural that you might be leaning toward gifts that provide an immediate mood boost.

But while good-quality chocolate, tasteful flower bouquets, and gift cards (“consumer therapy”) are rarely unwelcome, if you’re looking for something with more long-term stress-relieving benefits, check out the gift ideas listed in this article.

    The ‘Let That Shit Go’ mug is awesome. I have it on my desk (wish I could upload a pic)! I actually also bought the punching ball but a) it gets old and b) sometimes you hit it too hard and it hurts!
