Don’t fact check us on this, but it’s just about impossible to go wrong with a pampering gift—whether you’re shopping for a stressed-out new mom or dad, a very pregnant sibling, an incredibly hardworking best friend, or just about anyone else who needs to take a minute to breathe (which, let’s face it, is everyone).
Yet, here’s this thing: If you’re like us, you may not be able to treat your loved one to a week-long stay at a luxury spa. That’s okay—because you can encourage her to indulge in some spa-worthy self-care with any of these zen-inducing presents. Think high-tech massagers that offer a soothing touch, incredibly cozy clothing she can change into after a long day, gorgeously scented candles that’ll help her unwind, a pretty mug for their nightly cup of chamomile tea, a gift box that’ll deliver R&R items right to their door, and a selection of stress-busting beauty products, like jade rollers and rich hand creams. Plus, if you really want to go above and beyond, you can even pick a few items and put them together in a pampering basket or gift set.
Ahead, we’ve compiled the best pampering gifts to buy someone who is stressed—including unique finds from places like Amazon and Etsy, and a few of Oprah’s Favorite Things—all of which will deliver some much-needed TLC.
