2020 has been an unprecedented year of challenges. But these hurdles cannot stop us from being hopeful and happy, especially during the holiday season. Here are affordable stress-relieving gifts that you can give to family, friends, and of course, to yourself to decompress and unwind.

Massage oil for stress relief. Have a DIY full-body massage at home to relieve stress and muscle tension, as well as to have a satisfying sense of well-being. Recommended massage oils for relaxation include virgin coconut oil, jojoba oil, and sweet almond oil.


Personal hygiene kit. One study revealed that good hygiene can help relieve stress. You can’t go wrong with a gift basket that includes bath soap/skin whitening soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, skin moisturizer, and other essential toiletries.


Aromatherapy fragrance oils. Enhance both physical and emotional health with aromatic natural oils through aromatherapy. Healing aromatherapy scents include lavender, bergamot, vanilla, orange, lemon, chamomile, eucalyptus, menthol, and rosemary.


Foot care kit. Pamper your tired feet and de-stress at the same time. Your foot care kit should include toenail clippers, pumice stone, foot cream, gel plasters (to cover blisters), anti-chafing gel, antiperspirant spray, antibacterial soap, and lavender oil (for a soothing foot soak), among others.


Food supplements. Give the gift of health through food supplements that contain vitamins, minerals, herbs, enzymes, amino acids, or other ingredients. Research has shown that taking food supplements can boost immune response and help protect against illness.
