16 Stress-Relieving Gifts to Make 2020 More Bearable
If there’s a silver lining to 2020, it’s that we’ve all realized how much our loved ones mean to us. Whether they’re close enough to be in our quarantine bubbles or on the other side of a border, these are the people you’ve leaned on for support and they’ve leaned on you. You can’t buy them a reprieve from 2020, but you can turn them onto healthy habits that’ll persist long after the world goes back to bustling restaurants and family holiday meals.
Michelle Obama recently spoke on her podcast about how important it was for her to maintain daily rituals to cope with a tough year.

This gave a sense of structure to a weird year of formless days. Hopefully, the gift ideas below will help your loved one find their own rituals and de-stress.
