The YoYo Mat mat does it for you! Simply flip the mat over and, much like a cartoon tongue, it rolls itself right up onto your list of “Favorite Things Ever.” (I so want that self-rolling yoga mat.

8. Footbath



For spa quality foot therapy at a price you can afford, you’ll want to purchase the Beverly Hills Footsie Bath.

Get the Luxury Bath Pillow and save your spine from a trip to the chiropractor (if you’ve ever fallen asleep in bath to wake up with a stiff, strained neck you’ll know what I mean). Plush cushion holds your head in comfort, and the suction cups make sure the pillow stays put as you relax.


10. Dead Sea Mud mask



Sometimes you just need to revive yourself from the outside in. Some face masks can irritate the skin and cause more problems than they solve. The Majestic Pure Dead Sea Mud Mask gives you a deep down cleansing of your pores with non-irritating ingredients at a fraction of the price most spas would charge for it. Your skin will look clearer and brighter with every application.


11. Facial Steamer

Why sweat in a public sauna with complete strangers when you can get the same benefits at home? We don’t mean that, we love the sauna too but who has the time, right? The Spaire Nano Ionic Facial Steamer gives you an exclusive private facial wherever and whenever you choose. Spaire’s portable face sauna leaves your skin looking fresh and helps to minimize blemishes and wrinkles.

You’ll never need another blanket after you purchase this one; its total comfort will have you floating on Cloud 9.


15. Floatation Spa Gift Certificate



A gift certificate to a floatation spa could be just the ticket your loved one is looking for. Warm Epsom salt water keeps you afloat as you immerse yourself in total relaxation due to being sensory deprived in your own private spa room.

Although a floatation spa coupon may not be the best gift for anyone who’s claustrophobic, others will reap the mental and physical benefits of this therapeutic treatment that’s often described as an enlightening experience.

The experience in itself and its aftereffects almost seem to good to be true. Deep feelings of inner peace, pain reduction, creativity boosts and mind altering insights only scratch the surface of what may be in store for her. Also nice, research found that these positive effects last months after a float session.


16. Isolating noise-canceling headphones



With wireless noise-canceling headphones, the only sounds you’ll hear are the ones you want to hear. Total sound isolation ensures that the rest of the world can carry on while you listen to the symphony of whatever sounds relax you.



17. Proteus Light and Sound Stimulation System

Proteus Light and Sound Stimulation System

If she meditates or is open to mindfulness in general, a sound spa a.k.a a polyphonic synthesizer may help her decompress to previously unknown levels. By utilizing bright, flickering light and generate binaural and dual binaural beats it induces various states of consciousness such as relaxation but also euphoria and reduced anxiety.

The light show syncs with soothing sounds boosting meditation effects which allow her to reach much deeper states of meditation more quickly. The Proteus can be connected to a biofeedback device (optional) so that its programming adapts to her current mood.

These are still largely fringe devices and it must be noted that they are not suitable for those prone to seizures yet interest among the general public is growing. Do her a favor and take a quick look at the raving reviews.


18. Neck Hammock

takes away neck strain and helps relaxing

Whether she suffers from headaches, arthritis, neck and shoulder pain or simply work-related grumpiness, this clever gadget might help. It might seem like a quirky gadget at first but there’s actual science supporting the health claims.

So called cervical traction applies a distraction force that gently pulls the head away form the neck. This offers relief to discs and muscles, thus providing a sense of relaxation as well as pain relief.

The Neck Hammock makes a fabulous gift for office workers and women who travel a lot, gf’s who suffer from text neck syndrome or simply anyone who wants to get rid of discomfort in their neck and back.


19. Heated Luxury Spa Blankie

wrap her in a comfy, warm, lavender-scented hug

Snuggling up under a blanket engenders a micro-climate which warms your skin and helps you relax and fall asleep. Add being swaddled by the softness of this blanket and the science-backed relaxing effects of lavender scent and you’ve got the ultimate soothing gift.

Not yet convinced this is the perfect relaxing gift for her? Keep in mind that lavender is commonly used for its physically and emotionally balancing effects as well as its nausea-reducing properties. On top of that, take a look at the customer review ratings and see for yourself what stands out.

20. Audible audiobook membership

Audible audio books make reading more easy and relaxing
wind down with audiobooks

Give her the gift of floating off with a good book. An audio book, that is. Because listening to books is both fun and practical. She can just as easily listen while in the car during rush hour, or snuggle up comfy on the couch with her headphones on. Or in the waiting room, public transportation, or on the beach, for that matter.

Anyway, books offer powerful pathways to temporarily escape the mundane. It’s not just bookworms who are claiming this. Research shows that “Reading for just six minutes can reduce stress by 68 percent.”

The scientists also found that reading gets you faster to a more relaxed state than other popular de-stressing methods such as having a cup of tea or coffee, listening to music, and getting some fresh air while taking a walk.

Besides offering a great opportunity to forget about one’s daily routine, books can be exciting, interesting, relaxing, funny, or all of them combined.

She doesn’t like to read, you say? Take advice from J.K. Rowling who said; “If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.” Give her an Audible Membership so she can start exploring the wondrous world of audio books and learn to lose herself in them.
