As a 20-something woman who suffers from anxiety and depression myself, I know one thing or another about ways to feel better.
Receiving a gift in itself is a great mood booster, but the effect doubles when it’s something that can help you relax and increase your well-being as well.
This gift guide is also suitable for everyone looking for a gift for young women in general, whether it’s a gift to yourself, your sister or your granddaughter.

Tokyo Tarareba Girls
A comic book about women in their early 30s, but it’s enjoyable and relatable for women in their 20s as well. I, personally, found this very entertaining (I’m 25) and that’s why I recommend it.
It is available as kindle and paperback.
If you want the whole 9 book series at once, you can get them with one click on kindle:
Written by the same author as Tokyo Tarareba Girls, this highly recommended comic is about slightly younger females who live together.
This is also something that I can personally recommend.
Both of these two comics are very popular and have been made into live action versions.
If you want to splurge a bit, you can the complete set of this series in one box:
Zen As F*ck
A bestselling book that is loved by reviews. It is recommended for self help, uplifting and people have reported that it is a great gift.
A lot of women find it hard to relax, due to many responsibilities. I guarantee (from personal experience) that this will help her A LOT.
If you are looking for something that has the potential to significantly improve someone’s life, I really recommend this. You can read more about how an acupressure mat helped me reduce anxiety and depression, and get the joy back in life, here.
Ajnamat is a great brand when it comes to quality; they use materials that are environment friendly, and plant a tree for every mat or pillow they sell.
If she loves pink, I recommend this instead:
Essential oil set
Every woman (or at least 99%) loves essential oils. They are calming, relaxing and rejuvenating.
What’s good about this gift set is that it comes with a diffuser necklace — meaning she can use it throughout the day and be reminded of the kind gift, while enjoying the benefits of any of the 4 oils that the set includes — lavender, peppermint, and two special blends for inner calm and zen.
You can read more about the properties of the oils and blends on the amazon page by clicking the image above.
The necklace comes in 4 vibrant and two discrete colours, which you can choose from.
These headphones double as an eye mask and can be used for listening to music or ASMR while sleeping/falling asleep.
They are noise cancelling and connect with bluetooth, and they also have a microphone.
They are soft and friendly for the skin, and work even for side-sleepers (reportedly no pain).
With these you can listen to music or ASMR while falling asleep without getting tangled into the headphone chords (and eventually breaking them).
This is one of the best things for people who listen to ASMR to sleep and don’t want to bother with chords and the pain of headphone pressure from lying on your side.
Pukka Tea and Chocolate Gift Set
I have to admit, I’m really tempted by this set — it’s pukka tea and premium chocolate!
This set comes with a cute little bag, a tea spoon, a handmade tea towel, 16 pieces of premium chocolate and 20 teabags.
The flavour of the tea is Chamomille, vanilla & manuka honey. It is a sweet and lovely tea, one of my personal favourites.
This gift is perfect for a sweet-lovers.
Pukka is a brand that organic and uses ethically sourced herbs from the nature.
If you contact them, you also have the option to include a personalized message tag.
Pukka Christmas Calendar
If she isn’t a sweet-lover, this is a great alternative. It is a Christmas calendar with pukka’s most popular flavours, one bag for each day.
This versatile blanket is made of one of the best wools in the world. It is soft and can be used as a throw, blanket, accessory for instagram photos and more.
It comes in many different colours and sizes, from baby to king size, and it is 100% handmade.
For the luxury it provides, it comes with a reasonable and affordable price.
For someone with depression or anxiety, being able to hide inside a blanket and forget about the world around can be one of the most soothing things. If that blanket is soft and gentle, it’s even more comforting.
For e-book lovers, minimalists or book lovers in general.
This high resolution e-book reader comes with 16 GB of storage space, but it supports up to 128 GB of extended memory — that’s a lot of books.
It supports many different e-book formats, such as pdf, ePUB, txt and more, and it also has a light system that protects the eyes.
The android 6.0 system allows a smooth page turning experience, which is definitely a must. It also comes with built-in Audible and a screen protector.
Why not get this in combination with one of the books/book series above?
I hope that I’ve been able to help someone with this relaxation boosting gift guide.
