10 Gift Ideas For Someone With Anxiety
I don’t know about you but, as I’ve got older, I very much enjoy finding the perfect gifts for my friends and family more than receiving them. I can spend hours searching shops and the internet to find the best. Websites make it easier with interest categories; for the beauty lover, the animal lover, the golf lover, the tech lover etc. So, with the help of Amazon.co.uk, I’ve decided to compile a list of gift ideas that’s a little different.
Here’s my thoughtful present ideas for people with anxiety!

Fidget cube’s have become HUGE this year, with so many people sharing their success stories and praise about them. The cube’s 6 faces are designed to satisfy the most extreme fidgeters and it’s great at easing anxiety, helping with disorders like ADHD, quitting bad habits, maintaining focus and relieving stress.

I ADORE my Himalayan pink crystal salt lamp! It’s beautiful on my bed side table and its super therapeutic. Not only does it sit there looking pretty, but it’s also hard at work. Salt lamps release negative salt ions and cleanses the air of pollutant molecules. It’s believed too calm allergy and asthma symptoms, improve sleep, aid relaxation and reduce stress and increase serotonin levels in the brain. Also, it’s a natural product, so no two lamps are the same!

If you know someone who suffers with anxiety and loves all things chakra and healing stones, then this unisex bracelet is a perfect stocking filler. It’s made with natural Tiger’s Eye stone beads and 7 stones that represent each chakra for a balanced wellbeing. Tiger’s Eye is believed to be a very protective stone, and have healing properties that enhances courage and self-confidence and shields off negative thoughts and emotions. Even if you don’t believe the mumbo-jumbo, it’s still an incredibly thoughtful sentiment.
Who doesn’t love a dream catcher? My bedroom is full of them and this one in particular is beautifully made. According to its native American origin, it’s believed that when a dream catcher is hung above the bed, it passes the good dreams through the feathers to the sleeper, and catches the bad dreams in its web for them to be destroyed in the morning light. It’s a great gift for all ages!
Meet the Worry Monster, who promises to eat your worries! This super soft plush toy is obviously aimed at children, but I don’t see why they can’t provide comfort to adults too. I’d love one! If metaphorically eating your worries isn’t enough, you can write them down and dispose of them inside the Worry Monster’s zip up mouth. They come in 3 vibrant colours and have been recommended by psychologists as an aid to reduce anxiety and fears.
