Well, it's December and that means it's Christmas season again! This time of year can definitely put a toll on those of us who have anxiety or any other mental health issue. So, whether you need ideas for yourself of what to put on your wishlist or you have those that are dear to your heart who have anxiety and you want to know what to get them, here is a gift guide:

1. Bath Bombs

These bath bombs from Lush are sure to be a big hit for anyone wanting to relax during any stressful time in their life. You can find it here:

2. Essential Oils

Essential oils are totally in right now. They are good for you because they are natural. This essential oil is from Origami Owl. The super cool thing about Origami Owl's essential oils is that they have designed a locket with a disk to put essential oils on. This is perfect for the girly girl in your life who wants to feel cute as well as calm.

This is the locket you can fill with your essential oils. Read more about it here:

Coloring books are a great way to release your creativity and relax. They get your mind off of what you are worried about because you become focused on coloring. I can testify that it is a great way to relax because my mom is on the coloring bandwagon and loves it.

4. Pillow Mist

Pillow mist is a great way to wind down and get a great night's sleep. Who doesn't love sleep? This gift would be great for any age.

6. Tea

I could go on and on about tea. I order tea from The Republic of Tea and ever since then it had been a treat. It is soothing and can be a great calming thing to drink before bed. My mom and I would watch our favorite show and sip on tea together.

Journals are a great gift for any gender and any age. You can get them in so many different designs and colors. My therapist recommended me to journal when I was having very bad anxiety.I look back at my old journals and it is so cool to see how far I have come. They can be an encouragement.

8. Music

Music is great therapy and totally a gift for anyone. I prefer relaxing to Jazz and you can never go wrong with Frank Sinatra.

9. Candles

I love candles and they can totally bring relaxation into your room.

10. Hugs

This is a free gift that means a lot. Sometimes, you don't have words to say to someone that has anxiety and that is ok. Hugs are a great gift and gesture. Go give some hugs my friends! Also, if you are reading this and don't have anyone to hug.. Go hug your furry friend. They are great for releasing anxiety as well.

Here is a website of the cutest hugs:

Have a super happy Christmas, my friends. May your holidays be filled with less stress and tons of great memories.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone.

You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."
