20 Stress Relief Gifts For the Ultimate in Relaxation
#1 – Gideon Wooden Dual Foot Massager

#2 – Salt Massage Stones
If you’ve been on our site before, then you know we love Himalayan Salt. We love it for lamps, for cooking, and also in stone form – for massage. You can use them warm or cool and then glide on your skin with organic coconut oil (or your choice of oil; but never water).
If you have 3 minutes, watch this very helpful video of Ann Brown who talks about how she uses Himalayan salt stones on a daily basis.
- Can be used for people suffering from arthritis and pain from muscular diseases
- Cleansing and detoxifying
- Relaxing and stress-relieving

#3 – Original Gorilla Grip
Relax for longer in your bath with a good bath pillow. This Gorilla Grip has excellent suction cups so that your pillow stays in place and you can relax in your warm bath.
This is the #1 Bestseller in Bath Pillows.
- Fits any tub or jacuzzi
- Waterproof and easy to clean
- 10 year guarantee and 100% refund guarantee
- Haven’t experienced mildew or bad smell with this brand
- Perfect for those with neck arthritis or other similar issues
- Suction cups are so strong that the pillow may rip if you force the pillow from the tub (we speak from experience!). If you are taking the bath pillow out, I’d suggest using a fingernail instead to pry the suction cups slowly off the tub surface.

#4 – OontZ Angle 3 Bluetooth Speaker
We’re suckers for a good bluetooth speaker for the bathroom. I mean, are we the only ones who have rockin’ concerts in the shower?
This is the #1 Bestseller in Wireless and Streaming Audio Systems.
- Splash-proof and water resistant
- Great for the beach too as it’s also sandproof and rainproof

#5 – Aromatherapy 18 Essential Oils
Essential oils are a wonderful natural solution if you want a pick-me-up, want to feel sleepy, or if you have a cold. There’s always an essential oil for anything and everything, thanks to aromatherapy.
These are best paired with a good diffuser. I just recently came home after crossing 7 time zones and I was a complete wreck. My diffuser was one of the few things that kept me sane during my one-week excruciating jet lag.
This is the #1 Bestseller in Fragrance Collections and Home Scents.
- For a fair price, you get 18 bottles of essential oils
- All natural with no additives; therapeutic grade
- Includes my favorites like lavender, lemongrass, rosemary, tea tree, frankincense, pink grapefruit, and many more
- Very responsive customer support
- Packaging should be improved as there is no individual cushioning for the bottles so a few buyers got theirs cracked (This is where the responsive customer support comes in.)

#6 – Bian Stone
Bian stones are one of our favorite tools for Gua Sha massage therapy. Gua Sha is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It’s basically a hard scraping of the skin that results in scary red patches. It’s actually not as painful as it looks (or sounds) but it is highly therapeutic as it releases stagnant lymph and blood in the body.
Bian stones are said to be the best for Gua Sha.
- Very affordable
- Best range of frequency for gua sha
- Authentic gua sha is done with bian stones
- Not the best pick if you have hands that are smaller than average

#7 – Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp
Philip and I have a salt lamp in every room of our house and we have two in our bedroom. They’re also our go-to when we’re giving out presents. I personally think that salt lamps have healing properties although Philip may tease me about it. Still, he DID buy more lamps citing how they look very nice all lit up at night.
I am biased but this is one of my favorite stress relief gifts on this list.
- Recommended for people suffering from asthma, allergic rhinitis and other respiratory issues
- Helps make a room smell better so it’s great for pet owners
- Uses very little electricity
- Very beautiful when lit up
- Comes with a dimmer
- Will sweat in a humid environment so you have to keep it on
See Also: The Best Salt Lamps To Buy
- The base is made of neem wood, known for its durable and termite free properties
- Heating the salt with the included 15 watt bulb releases negative ions into the air
- Lamp and cord assembly are etl approved

#8 – Therabath Arthritis Paraffin Bath
Paraffin baths basically do two things. First, they render your hands and skin super smooth. Second, they are great for pain relief (especially for those suffering from arthritis of the hands or from carpal tunnel).
How they work is you melt wax in the paraffin bath. With the temperature just right, you immerse and dunk your hands into the wax several times to create a thick layer, and then you put your wax-encrusted hands into a plastic bag. The heat and the wax combine to heal chapped or painful hands.
The full explanation of the procedure is here.
- Unlike many paraffin baths, this brand and model has very high buyer satisfaction ratings
- Paraffin baths are ideal for pain from arthritis, chronic joint pain, fibromyalgia, and others
- Good for addressing muscle spasms, inflammation, sprains, scars, stiff joints, eczema, psoriasis, and so on
- Has a 5 year warranty but you need to pay to ship it back if it develops a problem
- I wouldn’t recommend reusing the wax
- NEW and IMPROVED The TB6 model is a DEEP IMMERSION paraffin wax spa that is 25% deeper than previous models - 6 -9 lbs wax capacity - It...
- THE POWER OF HEAT THERAPY Warm paraffin wax has been used as an arthritis treatment and to relieve muscle stiffness by increasing blood flow...
- These paraffin wax bath units are hand-assembled ensuring that each and every one leaves the factory durable, safe, and reliable

#9 – Naipo Shiatsu Back And Neck Massager
Portable massagers are awesome. If you’ve ever had a massage, then we don’t need to go into how amazing massages are. With these portable massagers, you simply drape it on your body, turn on the switch, and enjoy the heat and the Shiatsu massage rollers.
- Heat and massage soothes away fatigue and pain
- Recommended for people who live alone (or who have lazy husbands) and can’t get shoulder massages
- Has a safety feature that turns off heat when it gets hot
- Naipo is one of our go-to brands
- Responsive customer support
- Should not be used without a shirt on
- Not for strong back deep tissue massage
- Adjustable intensity button providing 3 different speeds, from low,medium and high depending on your preference.
- Features 8 deep-kneading Shiatsu massage nodes to sooth tired, relieve muscle tightness.
- Built in advanced heat function transfers warmth to muscles. Automatic shut down in 20 minutes.

#10 – Coop Home Goods Memory Pillow
If you have a giftee who is having difficulty getting a good night’s sleep, you should give this friend a high quality pillow like the Coop Home Memory Pillow.

#11 – UrPower Essential Oil Diffuser
I love love love this little gadget. It’s very affordable and mine has lasted for more than a year now without any signs of wear and tear (apart from some smudged lettering). This is my go-to gift to friends who love aromatherapy and who don’t have an oil diffuser yet.
An oil diffuser lets you diffuse your favorite essential oils so that your rooms at home or at work are smelling great. Highly recommended!
- Great value for money
- Perfect gift for friends who are into essential oils or aromatherapy
- Great mood-lifter or simply to make a room smell great
- You can play around with your favorite essential oil scents like lavender, orange, or peppermint
- The little LED light that indicates it’s turned on can be an issue if you want total darkness at night

#12 – Tempur-Pedic Symphony Pillow
If you ask me, I’d say the best memory pillows are TempurPedic pillows. They’re the go-to brand for quality memory pillows. They come with an accompanying price tag though but it’s all worth it.
In fact, if you’re wondering why pillows are even in our list of stress relief gifts, I’ll just share that I had chronic neck and shoulder pain for months and months till I somehow got the brilliant idea of getting a memory pillow. And my chronic pain subsided since then.
- Best for side and back sleepers
- Ideal for those with neck pain or neck arthritis (I swear I cannot use just any pillow with my cervical spondylosis)
- Double sided
- Some buyers say it’s too firm

#14 – Zyllion Neck & Back Massager Cushion
If you or your giftee dream of having a massage chair but can’t afford it, get the next best thing: a massage cushion. It’ll only set you back by a hundred bucks and you get a massage chair experience (albeit dialled down).

#15 – Beurer Shiatsu Foot Massage
I give you fair warning. We are entering into the realm of more expensive gifts. To even consider giving out these gifts, they would most likely be gifts to yourself, your spouse, or your beloved family.
We already featured a wooden foot massager earlier and the price is unbeatable. If you have the budget though and want something with more features, check out this Beurer, one of our favorite picks.
These foot massagers are a perfect gift for friends who have jobs where they stay on their feet the whole day or for elderly who are suffering from foot pain.
- Relieves pain from plantar fasciitis, foot numbness, and similar conditions; improves circulation and alleviates pain

#16 – Zinus 12” Green Tea Mattress
This mattress is called Green Tea because it’s made with green tea extract and castor oil. This helps keep the mattress fresh and clean. This mattress has the record for being the number 1 bestseller for mattresses and I believe this is due to a balance between the affordable price and the decent satisfaction ratings from buyers.
- No bad memory foam smell!
- Has antibacterial protection
- High satisfaction ratings from buyers
- None that we could find

#17 – JNH Lifestyles MG401HB Infrared Sauna
Can you imagine yourself enjoying a sauna at home everyday? I can! It’s next on my personal wish list.
The therapeutic effect of heat is common knowledge. The use of heat to rejuvenate our tired bodies goes back to ancient cultures. The modern twist to it though is the infrared sauna. This type of sauna emits infrared light that we experience as radiant heat. This is easily absorbed by our bodies allowing for deeper penetration.
The JNH infrared sauna is one of the top brands and models for infrared saunas.
- A great infrared sauna for up to 4 people
- Great functionality and performance; has 9 heaters
- Comes with speakers and LED lighting
- Has a digital control panel so you can change settings while using your sauna

#19 – Bath Master Spa Sauna
Similar to heat therapy from an infrared sauna, steam therapy also has numerous health benefits ranging from physical, emotional, and beauty benefits.
At the end of the day though, a relaxing steam bath such as this one is premium luxury that you can enjoy at home. If you’re earning big bucks and need stress-relief to keep you healthy and at optimal performance, then consider this spa sauna.

- 6 Body massage Jets
- Overhead rainfall shower head
- Computer control panel

#20 – American Spas Hot Tubs
We’ve been to many spa trips where we experienced the full benefits of a jacuzzi. Once we have our dream sauna next on the list will be a hot tub with ALL the features! I want more jets and bubbles than I can count.
Be careful when buying a hot tub – it’s not just the initial purchase but also the subsequent maintenance. Many hot tub owners buy before they are financially stable enough and have to cement in their installation. The cost of upkeep turned their dream into a nightmare!
If you know exactly how much it costs to have a hot tub at home and you are the type of person to enjoy the full relaxation and healing benefits of a hot tub, then this premium luxury item has your name on it.
- Has 11 stainless steel hydrotherapy jets
