the 2020 holiday gift guide for the anxious friend in your life

Holiday season 2020 is officially here, which means it’s time to start stressing over gift giving … YAYYY!

Yes, that was sarcasm, LOL.

On a serious note, 2020 has been filled with a lot of change, and in turn, a lot of discomfort. I know I’ve absolutely had my ups and downs (more downs than I’d like to admit), and I can say the same for most of the people in my life.

Due to being almost nine months into a global pandemic, money may be tight and many will be spending the holidays solo. So, before I go deep into a gift guide of all the fun things, I encourage you to simplify gift giving this year. Whether that’s a Secret Santa-type plan with your family, framing pictures for your loved ones, or simply dedicating an hour a week for a FaceTime date, a little bit will go a long way.

If you are able to treat your family and friends this year, I’ve compiled all of my favorite gifts for the anxious folks in your life below! The best part? They are all under $100 (and most are under $50)!


the most beautiful, thought-provoking journal I’ve ever owned: You Are the Magic You Seek (also on Amazon!)

one of my favorite forms of self-care: Detox in a Jar (code AANDA15 for 15% off!)

this meaningful, connection-building card game from the amazing We’re Not Really Strangers

the bath mat that we all need right now

this stylish, yet effective, weighted blanket

a meditation pillow that’s both functional and cute

my all-time favorite book by Brene Brown, Rising Strong

the tee that reminds you that you are enough

and the sweetest mugs to go with your tea

zen out with this palo santo bundle (my favorite calming scent!)

soothing candles with crackling wicks

beautiful potted plants delivered right to your doorstep (code LISA10 for a discount)
