Let's face it: as much as we love the holiday season, it can be incredibly stressful. Between planning elaborate dinners with family and friends, hunting down the perfect gifts, traveling to see loved ones, and spending money on all of the above, it's easy to feel overwhelmed during the fall and winter. If you or a loved one need some help taking time for yourselves and unwinding this season, we've found relaxing gifts for everyone on your list.

Whether you're shopping for the college student overwhelmed by exams, parents in serious need of some "me" time, or the workaholic who never takes a break, these products will help transform their bed, bath, and body into a tranquil environment.

For the insomniac, weighted blankets and soothing sheet spray are the way to go.
