Let’s face it. It may be called the most wonderful time of the year, but for some people it could be nothing further from the truth. Instead of holiday cheer and glee, some people are totally stressed out. Whether it’s work related, money related, or family related, they aren’t very happy right now. Here are some gifts that will help them relax and boost their mood.
Yoga Class: Studies show that hitting the yoga mat at least once a week raises a chemical in the brain called GABA. Those who suffer from depression have been associated with having low levels of this. This makes a great gift to give to someone who may be new to yoga, or even someone who is familiar with it already.
Aromatherapy Mask: Aromatherapy with essential oils can lift your mood easily. Go for lavender for a relaxing mood.
White Noise Machine: If you know someone who doesn’t rest well, give them a white noise machine. They can select a sound such as rain, ocean waves, or a dull hum. This helps to tune out disturbances while they are trying to rest.
Buddha Board: This board allows them to create doodles that will help them to relax while at work. This is touted as being a great form of meditation and stress reliever.
Indoor Mini Fountain: This beautiful fountain delivers a sound of water that is designed to be therapeutic. It really helps to bring a sense of tranquility.
