If you know someone with anxiety, you might be wondering if there’s anything you can get for them as a way to show your support, especially if you can’t be with them all the time. Besides actually being there for someone, listening to them, and being a good friend, here are 10 gifts for people with anxiety (or anxiety gifts for yourself :)) or helpful anti-anxiety products for anxiety.
These anxiety products are great gifts for someone who worries or as general stress relief products and gift ideas. You could even combine a few of these anti-anxiety gifts to create a special anxiety gift basket for yourself or someone else.
10 Gifts for Someone with Anxiety | Products for Anxiety
1. Inspirational mug with calming herbal tea for anxiety
You could make a cute mini gift set by pairing an inspirational mug with a box of herbal (decaf) tea or a few teabags in the mug, and then wrap the whole thing with cellophane and a ribbon.
2. Soul CBD Oil
Discovering CBD oil was a big help for me. It feels calming and relaxing, and since there’s no THC in this brand, you only get the positive benefits and not the “high.”
The brand I love is called Soul CBD and I’ve actually tried a few other brands that didn’t seem like they did much, but with this one there’s a noticeable positive effect and I now take it every day.
If it’s allowed where you live, I would totally recommend giving it a try. 🙂
This spa box includes lots of bath goodies like bath bombs, candles, bath salts, handmade soap, and more, and having a spa day can help you relax and unwind from the day. 🙂 You can also try making some homemade bath bombs or a DIY sugar scrub for a fun DIY gift.
4. Mindfulness Cards for anxiety
These Mindfulness Cards are a deck of colorful cards that each contain an inspirational quote or phrase to keep you mindful and inspired throughout the day. They also have a mindfulness exercise on the reverse side so you have something concrete to do as an action step.

Weighted blankets are a soothing and comforting way to relieve anxiety and sleeplessness. I just got this one from Weighting Comforts and it’s great! It’s like a regular blanket but it has little pellets sewn into it to give the blanket a little bit of weight (10 pounds total for the size I got) that feels like a hug or massage (actually it’s kind of like there’s a cat sleeping on you haha).
Oh wait, there is a cat sleeping on me…
Lavender is a very relaxing scent to add to your bath time, and this one comes in pretty packaging. It can also be part of an inexpensive idea for self care. For a DIY gift you can also try making your own homemade bath bombs with these ideas from Tuxedo Cats and Coffee.
7. Yoga mat and gift certificate for a class
