One of my favorite Instagram follows, Alexandra Elle, shares her inspiring journey from self-doubt to self-love. Part guide, part memoir, it’s been on my bedside since it arrived.

When I need something to focus my energy on, home mani/pedis are a welcome (and colorful) distraction. People of Color not only offers a variety of shades but their products are also non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free.

This peppermint oil roll-on is a favorite of mine. I’m a firm believer in the power of aromatherapy, and this cooling, soothing scent almost instantly eases the tension.

Self-love. Literally. When we think of relaxation, sex is something that’s often left off the list. Dame makes amazing products—the Eva II is their best seller and be used on your own or with a partner.

I purchased my ice roller for headache relief but I actually use it more often to relieve puffiness. It’s a burst of energy in the morning and feels heavenly after a long day.

A massage bar with a soothing fragrant aroma. Use by yourself after a shower or before bed. Bonus: If you are into it, grab a partner and use this for a massage.

Humidifiers are a necessity here in the winter to combat the dry, cold environment. Secret bonus: Because we are running one 24/7, my winter skin is glowing and dewy! These ceramic humidifiers look fantastic anywhere.

Snuggling up in this weighted blanket is like wrapping yourself in a hug. I highly recommend pairing this blanket with a dog or two for extra coziness.

This 2-in-1 essential oil and salt lamp combo is a perfect product to put right next to you on your desk. I like the option of adding essential oils or just basking in the salt iodization.

I’ve already added the humidifier to my Amazon wishlist! And my mom, my MIL, and my sons’ teachers are each getting that ice roller. I have one, too, and love it for headaches.

November 17, 2020 3:42 pm

Skincare and the ice roller are the ultimate relaxation gifts. Throw in a crackling wick candle and it’s basically a spa day!

November 17, 2020 3:51 pm

Perfect relaxation gift: some quality time spent in the outdoors, away from work in the hospital during this crazy stressful time.

November 17, 2020 6:09 pm

All of these look lovely but I’m especially intrigued by the salt lamp. I’ve never seen one with such a sleek design before.

November 17, 2020 6:29 pm

The humidifier and weighted blanket sound perfect for a dreary, Minnesota winter!

The oil lamp with a bottle of wine and a babysitter! Best relaxation gift ever. And maybe that message bar too 🙂

November 17, 2020 9:21 pm

Trying out new skincare products on a cold, quiet night is MY idea of relaxation.

Amanda Potter
November 17, 2020 9:49 pm

All of this! and a candle is always great for a little R&R time 🙂

November 18, 2020 4:34 am

That humidifier is a great find! Definitely considering one for myself and one to gift to my mom (who I’m guessing i inherited many of my dryness related skin issues 🙂 )

A massage or at home massager. Or nice pajamas that tempt me to get ready for bed extra early. Ahhh.

The perfect relaxation gift would be one whole day in the house to myself. 🙂 Some self care goodies wouldn’t hurt either!

I’ve always been a fan of Follain’s clean beauty products. Those, some candles, & a great book would make for a perfect night in!

The salt lamp looks lovely

November 21, 2020 5:54 pm

I’ve been wanting to try a weighted blanket for ages! This winter might finally be the time for it!

November 23, 2020 6:00 pm

Would love a humidifier, my skin is already suffering from the effects of dry heat

November 26, 2020 10:26 pm

A mask for face, hands and feet sounds like heaven.

November 27, 2020 11:08 am

In normal times, a hot stone massage. True relaxation! Now though, definitely a humidifier & a selection of herbal teas.

November 27, 2020 11:11 am

I’m intrigued by the idea of a weighted blanket. My perfect relaxation would be a blanket and a good book in front of a fire!

November 27, 2020 11:21 am

Love this! My ultimate relaxation gift is definitely skincare. I love taking time at night to do a mini at-home facial.

November 27, 2020 11:41 am

A warm soft blanket for cold winter nights.

November 27, 2020 11:42 am

Face mask and hair mask are the ultimate relaxation for me

November 27, 2020 11:46 am

An electric foot massager would be heavenly.

November 27, 2020 11:56 am

A good face mask is an instant mood booster.

November 27, 2020 12:06 pm

Right now my perfect relaxation gift would be some super buttery sweatpants!

Zoe Hastert
November 27, 2020 12:38 pm

That ceramic humidifier is gorgeous and would be so helpful on my nightstand. Otherwise, just some guilt-free time off from work.

November 27, 2020 12:48 pm

I think the perfect relaxation gift for 2020 is some alone and quiet time. Or some nice bath salts to have a nice calming bath.

Natasha S
November 27, 2020 1:21 pm

The weighted blanket and some tea would be perfect!

Natalie M
November 27, 2020 2:44 pm

In MN, the beautiful humidifier for sure.

November 27, 2020 2:52 pm

Need that weighted blanket! And perhaps a nice smoky scented candle.

Sarah Cicala
November 27, 2020 3:21 pm

Love to follow and long hot shower with multi-step beauty routine to help me relax! Spending time focused on a simple act while also pampering and cutting out other distractions.

November 27, 2020 6:46 pm

My perfect relaxation gift would be a cozy smelling candle, a great book and some quality time with my partner!

Katherine Casey
November 27, 2020 7:45 pm

I’ve had a humidifier on my wish list for a few years now. We’re all in need of all the relaxation we can get. 🙂

November 27, 2020 8:39 pm

perfect relaxation gift would be a foot massage from my amazing husband,while trying that Follain ultra hydration mask, which I haven’t tried but am betting is relaxing!

November 27, 2020 11:00 pm

The perfect relaxation gift would be a deep tissue massage followed by a kid-free brunch. Aaaand let’s not forget a mimosa or two.

November 27, 2020 11:33 pm

The humidifier looks great and would be perfect for the dry Colorado climate. Weighted blanket, too! The Follain skincare would also be so lovely!

November 28, 2020 4:39 am

Cashmere “sweats”

November 28, 2020 5:29 am

the humidifier! looks beautiful and so practical for winter

November 28, 2020 8:12 am

A hot bath, “spa night” at home and my favorite pjs- sound utterly relaxing.

November 28, 2020 8:52 am

An at home spa day is the perfect relaxation gift right now. A bath with a favorite candle, face mask, hair mask, good book to read and that massage bar after.

November 28, 2020 9:44 am

My perfect relaxation gift would be a heated blanket. Everything on this list looks great, too!
