14 Pampering Gifts For a Friend Who Needs To Chill
We all need to unwind, and these gifts make it that much easier to do so. Give one—or more—to a friend who wants some relaxation in her life (which really is just about everyone!).
Gifts to help her relax
A gift certificate for a day at the spa is an obvious way to treat someone who could stand to relax a little, but if she’s really time-strapped, there’s a good chance that gift will just gather dust in a desk drawer. Whether she’s a high-power executive, a frazzled mom, or simply stressed by all that the holidays bring, these gifts will make it easy to unwind in the comfort of her own home.
The next-best thing to a day at the spa. This gel mask contains calendula flower petals and aloe vera to instantly soothe dry, parched skin on contact, and works well for all skin types.
Hand Knitted Cable Style Dori Pouf
Encourage her to relax and put her feet up with this chic knitted pouf, available in 13 versatile shades.
Pinzon Faux Fur Throw Blanket
A soft, cozy throw is always a welcome gift. This faux fur blanket (available in three neutral hues) looks luxe, but rings in under $40.
Herbivore Botanicals Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish
The combination of virgin coconut oil and Moroccan rose gently exfoliates for enviably smooth, soft skin—perfect for those cold winter months. Bonus: the natural formula is free of parabens.
Jonathan Adler Women’s Pop Bourbon Candle
Not only does this Jonathan Adler candle smell amazing (it has notes of cognac, plum, and cedar), but it doubles as a gorgeous home accent, thanks to the chic mirrored glass cup. Even better: it has a long burn time, so she can use enjoy it long after the holidays have ended.
Eve Lom Kiss Mix
Get ready for the mistletoe! Whether you have chapped lips or just want a prettier pucker, anyone can benefit from this practical pot of lip treatment from Eve Lom. It’s made with beeswax to comfort a parched pout and menthol to cool, and the pearlized sheen leaves a little hint of shine.
Zuo Modern Pearl Table Lamp
An unexpected (but lovely) gift, this pearl table lamp delivers a soft, calming glow that will instantly take her home from chaotic to blissful.
Primula Half-Moon Teapot
This tea set provides a two-for-one relaxation punch: she’ll first unwind while watching the beautiful tea flowers bloom in the pot, and then while actually sipping the soothing tea.
Herbivore Calm Bath Salts
After a long day, soak the stress away with these calming bath salts. The blend of ylang ylang and vanilla eases the mind while the pink salt crystals help replenish skin.
Threshold Cable Knit Metallic Throw Blanket
This is not your average blanket. The navy color is unique, and the knitted pattern makes it look much more expensive than it is. Plus, the metallic threading throughout transforms this comfy throw into a decorative piece for displaying on the couch when you’re not swaddled in it.
Homedics Ellia Gather Ultrasonic Diffuser
Adding aromatherapy to your self-care routine can help enhance your relaxation and melt stress away. This ceramic woven diffuser adds style to any room. It delivers the scent of essential oils, and also has a remote-powered light that changes color. The device can also play a variety of soothing sounds.
Caswell-Massey Verbena Bar Soap Set
If you’re looking for something that appears luxe and expensive without the price tag to match, look no further. These bar soaps come wrapped in colorful packaging. Snag a few and wrap them with a bow or slip a single bar into a stocking—either way, it’s a win.
Ren Moroccan Rose Duo Gift
Treat someone to this lavish set. The intoxicating aroma of Moroccan rose will transform their bathroom to a spa when they crack open the body wash and after they step out of the shower, their softened skin will be taken a step further when the super hydrating body lotion is applied.
Pottery Barn Faux Fur Slippers
Fight the winter blues and cold feet with these creamy white slippers. The touch of faux fur—which comes in four colors, with at least one to satisfy even the pickiest person on your list—dresses them up, but it’s the super soft, cushy fabric that will delight whoever opens up this gift.
Of course if you have a friend that really needs to relax than you can get them a gift card for Healing Elements Massage in Fremont!
