I write a lot about taking care of your mental health and wellbeing. I’ve shared a lot about the struggles of dealing with anxiety and how running has helped me to manage it.
There have been so many other resources and products that have helped me to alleviate my anxiety and stress.
I decided to put together a list of my top ideas of thoughtful gifts for people with anxiety.
If there is someone in your life who struggles with anxiety and stress, they will probably really enjoy and benefit from these gift ideas!

Gifts For People With Anxiety
I recently invested in a weighted blanket and I am so obsessed!
I am not sure exactly how it works, but when I am under the weighted blanket, I just feel so comfortable and relaxed! It has definitely helped me with anxiety.
I even bring it along now when I go on trips.
I highly recommend trying out a weighted blanket!
Lavender Essential Oils
Lavender essential oils are a very popular essential oil used in aromatherapy.
It is known to promote relaxation and relieve anxiety and depression.
It can also help with insomnia.
I like to use an oil diffuser and diffuses some lavender essential oils before bed.
It helps me to fall asleep and relax.
Adult Coloring Book
Coloring in an adult coloring book can help you to relax and disconnect from the stress of the day.
Psychologists have found that coloring in a coloring book can bring a sensation of stress relief and relaxation due to the calm nature of the activity.
Something about mindlessly coloring in an adult coloring book can be really soothing!
I’ve written a lot about how journaling has helped me to manage my anxiety.
Keeping an anxiety journal can be a very therapeutic way to release your worry thoughts and practice positive thinking.
This anxiety journal can help to calm you down and center you and your thoughts.
I recently started investing in some different flavors of caffeine-free herbal tea and drinking it in the evenings.
I love the smells and the warmness of a cup of herbal tea.
A few of my favorite kinds have been ginger, chamomile, and fruit-flavored teas.
Light Therapy Lamp
As the days start to become shorter and fall approaches, it can be helpful to try out a light therapy lamp.
Light therapy can be helpful to treat seasonal affective disorder.
Light therapy lamps mimic natural outdoor light and can provide the same benefits.
If you live in a place that is dark and cloudy in the winter, this may be something for you to look into!
It’s best to talk to your doctor before starting light therapy.
