Dammit dolls are lots of fun.

2. Essential Oil Diffuser Bracelet
This is a really cool idea - and one of the best stress relief gifts for your Mum, sister or girlfriend.
All you need to do is drop a bit of essential oil or your favourite perfume on the bracelet.
This scent then diffuses slowly throughout the day - when you’re driving, sleeping, travelling or doing anything else stressful!
It’s also lightweight, washable and comes with plenty of colour options. The bracelet is actually adjustable too - so it can be customised to your wrist.

It’s easy to carry around on the go too, so it could be used in the office, during a commute or whilst you’re at home.
It’s one of the best stress relief gifts for women because it can be used to soothe menstrual pain too.
It can be wrapped around your head or covered across your shoulders and neck.
5. Stress Balls with Motivational Quotes
Who doesn’t like a good motivational quote to inspire them?
This is one of the best stress relief gifts for your coworkers - because they can be squeezed, thrown and shared in the office (it comes in a pack of 3).
With a motivational quote written on each ball, it’s great on display too.
The foam balls are 2.5 inches in diameter, and fun to fiddle with.
The turquoise colour is nice too.
Made out of spongey foam, they’re fairly durable and built to last.
6. TheraFlow Dual Foot Massager Roller
A good foot rub is one of the best ways to relieve stress.
Designed for foot reflexology, this relaxing foot massager roll really hits the spot.
It’s high quality, durable and gives relief within just a couple of minutes.

This is another one of my favourite stress relief gifts.
The funky, vibrant colours and motivational quotes are a great combination.
It’s great for the office - and a nice present for your coworkers.
In terms of quality, they’re OK but they’re not built to take huge amounts of trauma!
They come in a pack of four, so that’s enough to share around your workplace.
8. KitchenGynti Scented Candles Gift Set
Scented, relaxing and fragrant, this candle gift set is beautiful.
The patterns on outside of the candles look great - they have a kind of oriental feel to them.
I’d say this is a better gift for women really - and they’d be a nice addition to any home.
The wax is actually soy - so it’s eco-friendly and doesn’t produce black smoke when it’s lit.
They come with 15-20 hours of burning time per candle, which is a decent amount of time for a few uses.
9. Anxiety Relief Essential Oil Blend
So this oil blend is designed to be inhaled, with the essential oils providing a relaxing, stress relieving aroma.
But you can also it to your body too - to your arms, wrists, temples etc. in the same way that you’d apply perfume.
It’s a nice and natural way to manage stress, and this product has loads of good reviews.
You can even put a tiny bit on the tip of your nose if you’re feeling brave!

With over 8 tracks to relax too, this makes a wonderful present that you can be downloaded to your phone and listened to at anytime.
The music is gentle, soft and calming.
Personally, I’m not a fan of nature sounds, so this makes a great alternative that just an absolute pleasure to listen to.

13. URPOWER Essential Oil Diffuser

16. Adult Coloring Book
No - colouring books are not just for kids!
With plenty of patterns, designs and pages, this book is great for relaxing and taking your mind off the pressures of life for a little while.
I’d recommend this as one of the best stress relief gifts for friends who are creative.
With so many different patterns to choose from, it’s a wonderful way to mindfully colour in whilst expressing yourself.
The paper a little bit thin, so I’d use a thin, lightly coloured pen/pencil for this one because you’ll stop your colours bleeding through the pages.
17. TheraFlow Foot Massager Roller

With this roller knead massager, you can quickly soothe and release tension in your feet.
