These are my picks of gifts for someone with depression or anxiety. I think anyone interested in personal development or working on managing their mental health would appreciate these gifts. Let me know what you think and if you purchase any! I always love to hear from you guys. If you’re going to be doing any online shopping I defintitely recommend you signup for EBates. EBates gives you cash back when you shop online and right now they will give you $10.00 just for signing up. I had heard about EBates before but never signed up because I thought it was a scam. Then my friend told me how she got all this cash back from it and I decided I had to try it. It is legit you guys! I am terrible at shopping sales or using coupons but this site is seriously so easy even I can use it. OK now onto the gift guide!
This is a beautiful inspirational planner from the self-help author Danielle Laporte. A planner is a great holiday gift because the New Year is quickly approaching. This planner has inspirational quotes and space for writing out goals.
Stephanie Bellinger makes beautiful healing crystal pendants that she sells in her Etsy shop. Each stone has different healing properties that she lists in the description of each piece. I have a beautiful pendant I purchased from her that has Citrine (for confidence) and Blue Lace Agate (for communicating your truth). This would be a great gift for anyone that loves statement jewelry and unique pieces.
This is an essential oil diffuser that comes with eight different essential oils. Aromatherapy has been shown to be helpful in alleviating symptoms of depression and anxiety. I have an oil diffuser and I love it. I use it every night to make my room smell like lavender to help me fall asleep. I think this would make a really nice gift for someone.
A journal is a great idea for anyone that you know is working on their mental health. Managing depression and anxiety requires a lot of self-reflection and journaling is the perfect way to do that. This is an affordable leather journal with a beautiful stone attached to the front.
If you have a coffee drinker in your life grab them a mug with an inspirational quote. I also included the lego mug just because I thought it was awesome. These would make great stocking stuffers or easy gifts for your coffee drinking coworkers.
The winter time can be really difficult for people struggling with depression. A light exposure lamp helps alleviate symptoms of seasonal depression. This would be a thoughtful gift for someone who has been open with you about their struggle with depression.
Rescue Remedy is an herbal treatment for anxiety. It is easy to carry with you and can be taken as needed throughout the day. This would be a thoughtful gift or stocking stuffer for someone that has been open with you about their struggle with anxiety. I used to use it to help with test anxiety when I was in college.
This is a fun read that has practical life advice in it. I have actually read this book twice I found it so entertaining. This would be a great gift for someone who likes to read or is interested in personal development.
This is a deck of beautiful inspirational cards that Danielle calls Truth Bombs. This would be a great gift for anyone that loves inspirational quotes or is a little spiritual. I love her writing and I recommend a look around her blog.
A nice water bottle is a practical gift and would be perfect for any active person in your life. I literally carry mine around with me 24/7. This insulated water bottle will keep their beverage cold all damn day.
