Nowadays, women are way overworked. We tend to work at least 8 hours a day, as our fathers did, yet feel the obligation to do all the household chores, as our mothers did. We have jobs, prepare meals, clean the apartments, raise our children, and take care of everyone and everything, forgetting to take a break every once in a while and take care of ourselves as well.
The author Mandy Hale famously said: “It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.” Indeed, it is necessary. Because let’s face it – when we are stressed out we get cranky, testy, and eventually, all hell can break loose. To avoid that, it’s best to gift the woman in your life a calming gift, a de-stress gift, a pampering gift for her that will surely calm her body, mind, and spirit. Therefore, we have prepared this amazing list of the best relaxation gifts for her in the UK.
Treat her to an unforgettable spa getaway
A spa escape may be the ultimate relaxing gift for her. There are luxury spas and resorts available throughout the UK and all of these facilities offer serene surroundings, a cosy ambience, a peaceful atmosphere, and numerous professional treatments and massages that will surely melt the stress right off her body.
If you are searching for the perfect relaxation gift for your girlfriend and wondering “What can I buy my girlfriend for stress?”, search no more, as you have just hit the jackpot. You can join her and make this relaxing getaway a romantic one. On the other hand, if you suspect that your cannonball jumping may just make her more stressed, then it’s better to gift her a solo trip. It can either be a spa day or overnight or 2-night spa break.
The perfect gift for an at-home spa experience
If you are looking for a spa gift for her that will last beyond a short spa day or weekend, you can go with a luxury bath set for her. These luxury bath sets usually include bath bombs, bath salts, bath soaps, shampoos, body lotions, essential oils, and sponges, which will calm all her senses and de-stress her from the outside and from the inside. As these gift sets come with lovely packaging, you won’t even have to worry about getting the present wrapped, which will save you some stress as well!
The perfect gift for full at-home relaxation
Getting your wife, girlfriend, family member, or friend a relaxing pampering gift set for her will help her create a calming environment, a peaceful atmosphere, and a true safe haven in her own home. The spa-like scents of the essential oils, massage oils, candles, soaps, and bath salts, which tend to be included in these kinds of pampering gift boxes, will pamper her body and mind and relax and delight her as soon as she steps through the door.
The perfect calming gift for her that will last
Calm is one of the best meditation apps on the market. It is designed to help a person relax, sleep, unwind, worry less, become more mindful and generally happier. Buying her a yearly subscription, which will unlock all the meditations, songs, soundscapes, and sleeping stories may be the very best gift she has ever received! Not only will it relax her immediately, but it will also teach her how to stay calmer throughout the day, regardless of the situation she may find herself in, and boost her overall well-being. As such, this may be the perfect relaxation gift for her.
A gift of yoga that will combine relaxation with exercise
Relaxing music, meditation, and exercise (especially yoga) are all known to have extremely calming effects. As such, a subscription to an app that offers all of the above may be an excellent stress-relief gift for her. The app offers numerous yoga and meditation sessions, some of which are designed especially to relieve stress. And as the app comes with workouts for both beginners and advanced yogis, your girl will surely be able to fit in.
A fluffy relaxation gift for her
One of the most relaxing moments of the day is when you come home after a long day at work, open a bottle of wine, and snuggle up in a divinely fluffy and soft hooded bathrobe. Therefore, a cosy fleece bathrobe or housecoat may be a wonderful de-stressing gift for her. After all, regardless of what you do – listen to relaxing music, enjoy a glass of wine, admire the warm candlelight, or meditate – you can’t fully relax until you are in a robe.
A memorable relaxing gift
When did your beloved female friend last go on a vacation? I bet it was too long ago (it always is)! Well, no wonder she is stressed! Buying her a trip to a quiet and serene destination with a travel agency that will take care of all the bureaucracy, reservations, and other details for her, which will allow her to travel completely stress-free for once, is the most wonderful relaxing gift for her!
A gift that will help her create a relaxing environment
Aromatherapy is a great way to choose how you feel. While the scent of peppermint will make you feel energised, the scent of lavender will calm your senses. An aromatherapy diffuser will allow your wife, girlfriend, relative, or friend to create a relaxing environment either at home or at her office, as such, it is an amazing relaxing gift for women. This way she will never be stressed again.
Just make sure she always has enough supplies of essential oils. You can opt for organic essential oils for sleep, joy, and relaxation or any other essential oil sets.
A gift that will help her unwind
If your wife or girlfriend comes home completely stressed out, the best thing you can do is to immediately put an electric neck and back massager on her shoulders, especially if the sink is full of dirty dishes, which may additionally trigger her. This way, she will become perfectly mellow in a matter of minutes, and you will have the time to do the dishes.
Alternatively, you can choose another massage equipment or relaxing gift for her, such as a face roller and Gua Sha face massager, a wood massager roller, an electric foot massager, a more expensive massage chair, or a massage table. Warning: The massage table won’t massage her itself, as such, you may be required to do all the heavy lifting.
A gift that will teach her how to relax without tools
What better gift than one that will teach her how to relax on cue at any moment, in any given situation, and without tools? Purchasing a great book on relaxation that will provide the right information can be a real game-changer. Not only will she be able to control a stressful situation, but she will also learn how to never feel anxious, nervous, or tense again.
A comforting gift that will make her feel safe
Be her hero and gift her a cosy heated blanket that she can wrap around herself and melt all the stress away. These kinds of heated blankets are super soft, warm, and fluffy and when she snuggles up in it, she will feel like she is wrapped in relaxation. Dim the lights, put on some relaxing music, and let her have her 15 minutes of peace and quiet.
Instead of a blanket, you can also choose an oversized blanket hoodie, which will have the same relaxation effect.
A relaxing gift for her that will convert her home into a peaceful sanctuary
A Himalayan salt lamp would make a great calming gift for her. Not only will the soft orange light relax her senses, but a genuine Himalayan salt lamp is also said to reduce allergies, purify air, balance electromagnetic radiation, improve sleep, enhance mood, and relieve stress.
A luxurious relaxing gift for her
Imagine being able to melt your stress away on a daily basis without having to visit spas and luxury hotels! Getting an inflatable hot tub will enable you to do so! If your special female friend has the room to accommodate a large hot tub, she will definitely love getting such a fabulous calming gift and she will love you for giving it to her. It may be an extravagant gift, yet it is an outstanding pampering present for her.
A perfect relaxing gift for a carefree day
Let me paint you a picture. Your wife, girlfriend, relative, or female friend comes home from work, changes into cosy sweats, prepares herself a cup of tea or a glass of wine, grabs her favourite book (or the one about relaxation mentioned above), and sits in a comfortable hanging hammock chair. Does it get any more relaxed than that? Such a cosy ‘cocoon’ is definitely one of the best relaxation gifts for her.
A relaxing gift for her that will spread relaxation all over her home and backyard
High-quality speakers are a must-have in every relaxed environment and no list of the best relaxation gifts in the UK is complete without them. After all, the best way to ensure instant relaxation is to listen to some calming tunes. By choosing indoor/outdoor waterproof speakers, you will enable your female friend to fully unwind both at home and in her backyard.
You can opt for high-quality speakers that can be mounted on the wall, portable wireless Bluetooth speakers, or perhaps smaller, cuter, and more stylish vintage wooden speakers.
