This is perfect for your parents who are not into traveling a lot but needs a soothing massage for their back pains every now and then.
Compared to the handheld versions, a massage chair gives a full body massage with no effort at all. All your dad has to do is sit on it, turn on the programs he likes and voila! His body gets a premium treatment right at home or in his office.
Moms who are always stressed-out would enjoy receiving this gift. If you find that giving a massage chair may be too much for your budget, a foot massager is a great alternative.

There are many different hammock designs, which can be used anywhere. Does your brother love camping or is your friend the homebody type? You can certainly find a hammock specific to them.
Hammocks are created for one single purpose, for relaxation. It may be cliche, but hammocks have always been used to represent a beach vacation. Your loved one need not go to the beach, though, because with this gift you’re bringing the beach to them.
Sleep is the most basic form of relaxation. There are so many people who experience sleep deprivation today due to stress.
As we all know, a person deprived of sleep can be very impatient and out-of-sorts the next day, becoming more vulnerable to the effects of stress. And the stress cycle continues on and on.
A sleep mask can offer a very simple yet effective solution to this problem. There are also sleep masks where you can insert herbs to further help in calming the senses. If you want some variations, you can also give sleep pillows as a gift.
If you find the sleep mask too simple, you can go for a Sleep Sound Machine. They may not be as cheap as sleep masks but they are still very affordable, with premium models costing less than $100.
There are two types of sound machines. There is one which produces white noise, effectively drowning external noises. The other produces calming sounds like campfire or beach waves.
Whichever type you choose to give, these sound machines can help with achieving a well-rested sleep.
Yoga is a holistic approach to attaining our goals in all levels of our being. With that said, it is very beneficial in both the release and prevention of stress.

If your friend or a loved one is not a very social type of person, she can still practice yoga at home. The only tool she would really need is a yoga mat.
The internet is full of information on how to perform different yoga poses together with their benefits. Pinterest is an awesome online resource. Additionally, you may want to include a book on yoga with your gift for a complete package.

Robotic Vacuum Cleaner
Sometimes, even a time that is allocated for resting ends up with cleaning the room. A robotic vacuum cleaner can help on take away some stress in cleaning.
