According to the American Institute of Stress, 77 percent of Americans suffer from physical anxiety symptoms daily. Many of your family members will probably feel like they want a vacation now. The holidays are over, and the summer is fast approaching. Here are some gifts you can give someone who needs to escape from the stress of everyday life.
Nothing feels better after a long, stressful week than a deep tissue massage. Gift certificates are available at most spas and massage salons, so you can pay for the length of massage your loved one will enjoy. When done right, a good massage can feel like a a vacation. A handmade card with a massage and good-smelling oil is a thoughtful gift for a romantic partner.
We all dream of seeing the wonders in Greece or Galapagos. Even a weekend trip to a nearby attraction or an exotic destination can help reduce stress and promote rest. You can ask a friend or relative for a weekend they are free to attend, then arrange everything. Plan a getaway, book an Airbnb or a hotel, then arrange for travel and, if you want to, plan some activities. Even months after the mini-vacation, it tends to improve mood and combat stress.
Spa Day Gift Basket
Gift baskets full of self-care items are an excellent option for helping someone de-stress without adding any additional pressure. You can buy a ready-made basket or make one yourself. Fill a basket with bath bombs and other spa products like face masks and body scrubs. You can also include some of their favorite snacks.
Aromatherapy can not only improve mood but also relieve anxiety. Essential oils are great for everyday use and travel because of their calming properties. Peppermint is an excellent remedy for motion sickness when flying or driving a long distance. Lavender can help if you have trouble sleeping away from home.
A travel journal can be a thoughtful gift that will inspire someone to use it. They can take something with them that reminds them of you and record their experiences and travels. This may help the effects of the vacation to last longer. Even after returning from vacation, they can escape stress by recalling happy memories and relaxing experiences.
These thoughtful gifts are perfect for any occasion, whether a birthday, holiday, or just because of a gift. Your friend or loved one is sure to appreciate them. It’s always nice to break from the everyday grind and chronic stress.
