It’s important to be there for your loved ones. Especially during times like this. However, it can be much harder to be there for them when you can’t even visit them. Of course, you can always catch up on the phone, but there’s nothing wrong with showing your friends and family you care in other ways.

Gift giving is a popular love language for many people, and I highly recommend sending your friends struggling with mental health a gift that can brighten their day and relieve stress. You’d be surprised what journaling and coloring can do for someone when they’re not in the right headspace. We rounded up 10 gifts that will help your loved ones prioritize self-care.

We are not self-help experts or doctors, but we (and Amazon customers) adore these products and find them helpful for reducing anxious thoughts.

This is a great gift for people who appreciate aromatherapy. My aunt swears by lavender oil to help her family relax. I have used peppermint oil to relieve headaches! This high-quality diffuser is under $16 and is Amazon’s best-seller.

I love this compact size. It’s perfect for friends with small living spaces. There are two misting modes (6-8 hour and 3-4 hour working times). It will keep misting until the water runs out.

Also, the gift recipient will love the colorful mood light. With eight soothing colors and relaxing scents, they’ll have a peaceful ambience before bed.

Just a quick disclaimer, not all essential oils are safe for pets.

People who have anxious feelings are often told that positive thoughts help block out negative thoughts. I find that writing down goals and showing gratitude has been an uplifting experience. Treat your bestie to a new journal that is perfect for manifesting their goals and writing down their feelings.
