Gifts For People With Anxiety

Until I began my journey through anxiety hell, I never realized how many people actually do suffer from an anxiety disorder. I have shared my story with you in the past, and it truly is a very frightening thing.

I remember when my girlfriend was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, and I remember thinking

I don’t understand why she has to miss work due to anxiety!

Granted, her anxiety is a bit worse than mine, as I’ve never been unable to work or leave my home due to my condition, but the struggle is real for her.

Maybe you are looking for a gift for a girlfriend with anxiety, a family member, or even a co-worker who has shared things with you on a personal level.

I have put together a list of the perfect gifts for people on your list who have anxiety.

ANTI ANXIETY GIFTS

WHITE NOISE MACHINE

GET IT HERE

This is my #1 gift idea for that person on your list who has trouble sleeping at night. Anxiety is known to make those who suffer have difficulty falling asleep, or getting back to sleep. It is practical, and you can be sure it will get used rather than sitting on a shelf.

EYE PILLOW

GET IT HERE

This may seem like a silly gift idea for those who do not suffer from anxiety. In reality, this sleep pillow is designed for an anxiety sufferer with silk fabric, and lavender (known to reduce anxiety) flax-seed filling. Keep the light out and rest easier.

ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER

GET IT HERE

Oil diffusers have become extremely popular in the past year, and for good reason. They are particularly popular because you can change the scent according to how you feel. Perfect gift for someone who could benefit from the scent of lavender or vanilla to reduce anxiety.

DESK STRESS TOY

GET IT HERE

Just because you’re in the office doesn’t mean that you can’t have toys that will help reduce stress and anxiety. It has been scientifically proven that your brain cannot be two places at once, so when the anxiety starts building, use your desk toy to reduce those anxious feelings.

STRESS RELIEF BALL

GET IT HERE

A stress ball is a great anxiety relief tool (take it from me). It relaxes your mind and allows you to put your thoughts somewhere more pleasant. Great gift idea for that stressed out and anxiety stricken friend or coworker, and is perfect for home or office

MEDITATION EXERCISE CARDS

GET IT HERE

Many anxiety suffers require medication to treat their symptoms, but most often try to reduce their stress and anxiety naturally. Meditation is one of the top natural anxiety relief methods, and for good reason. Awesome gift or stocking stuffer.

While you may think that buying an anxiety gift for someone who suffers from anxiety is rude or thoughtless, think again. In fact, all we want for the people we care about the most is to accept the fact that we are suffering from a disorder. We don’t expect anyone to understand how we feel, but knowing that others care about our well being is important. Give them that anxiety gift and show them that you really do care and want to help.

Thanks for these recommendations, the pillow with lavender and flax seed pillow sounds so relaxing, when I get a massage sometimes they used an eyepillow like this and I loved it.
