The Best Relaxing Gifts for Your Stressed-Out Partner
8 relaxing gifts that relieve stress and bring the zen.
Let’s face it, 2020 has been a pretty stressful year. If you’re in a relationship, you’ve probably realized by now that you’re not just coping with your own stress, but that of your partner as well — the term “what’s yours is mine” comes to mind. With holiday season coming up, we’ve put together a list of relaxing gifts that will help both you and your SO forget about life’s stressors:
Tired of your better half waking up on the wrong side of the bed? The Luna blanket’s evenly distributed weight increases melatonin, the hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle and helps us get a good night’s rest. The breathable blanket also stimulates the release of serotonin (the happy hormone) and reduces cortisol (aka, the stress hormone that’s everyone’s worst nightmare).
Having a face mask session as part of our nighttime routine is already relaxing enough. Adding CBD into the mix brings us to new levels of relaxation we didn’t even know existed. Cannabidiol oil—aka CBD oil—is an extract derived from the hemp plant and works to regulate important functions of our body including sleep, metabolism, stress and mood. MASK’s Variety Box includes a trio of CBD-infused sheet masks that make it the perfect multi-purpose gift we’re sure your SO will thank you for—and we promise not to judge if you “borrow” one to try for yourself.
