The 5 Best Gifts for Busy People

The 5 Best Gifts for Busy People

One of the best and worst parts of the holiday season is deciding what gifts to get and for whom to get them. It might be easy to make a list of your nearest and dearest, but figuring out what’s best to get for each of those people within your budget can be challenging. Especially when it seems like the people in your life have everything they need, finding something that will bring a smile to their face and add value to their life can be so challenging!

It’s even harder when the people in your life seem to be busy all of the time. But sometimes that’s the key! The people in your life who are always go, go, go might sometimes need a friendly face to tell them it’s okay to take a breather every now and then. If you have someone in your life who never seems to pass a single day without a long list of plans and to-dos, getting them something this holiday season that will encourage them to step back and take some time for themselves might be the perfect thing.

It doesn’t have to be something as elaborate and expensive as a spa day or a holiday, either—those things can be really expensive which might be prohibitive for you, and it can also be difficult to give busy people gifts that will require them to devote too much time to the gift because then they’ll never use it. So what can you get the busy people in your life to encourage them to relax without getting in the way of their flow? Let’s find out!

1. A Way To Make Even Their Busy Days Relaxing

If someone you care about never seems to take a break, you may already know telling them that they should is a lost cause. So the key here is to find something that will help them de-stress and decompress without throwing off their schedule or getting in the way of the productivity that they value.

Especially with more and more people working from home, our Work From Home Kit is the perfect home office companion to help even your busiest pal or relative take a few moments every day to breathe in and appreciate the moment… before they get going again. With an essential oil diffuser to help turn even the busiest home office setup into a blissfully spa-like atmosphere guaranteed to lower stress levels with the power of aromatherapy, even the busiest person you know will love this gift.

You can even customize the experience you’re giving your loved one by adding additional essential oils to the mix. Our Productivity Bundle is ideal if you know the person your gifting is likely to set up their diffuser in their office because it includes essential oil blends like Motivate, Energizer, and Focus which will help keep them on their toes, while also providing a soothing scent and offering a beneficial humidifying effect.

2. A Way To Unwind After Work

If you know someone who barely ever stops to take care of themselves because they’re too busy taking care of everything else, the best gift might be a way to unwind and disconnect from their nonstop lives… while still keeping it to a necessary part of their day. 

We all have to bathe, right? Hopefully, the answer to that is yes automatically. But for people who never stop to take a breath, that probably looks more like a quick shower than a long luxurious soak. However, taking a bath can actually have a positive effect on your stress levels and overall improve your mental and emotional health. So knowing that even the busiest person in your life has to take a few minutes to clean themselves regardless, giving them a gift that encourages them to make that necessary daily function into some much-needed me-time might be just what the doctor ordered.

If you’re looking to encourage somebody to take some downtime but want to make sure your gift is still fun and light, bath bombs are an excellent option for a number of reasons. For one, they are incredibly pretty in the package. For another, as soon as you open them, you’re guaranteed to get a blast of a beautiful scent. And in order to use them, the busy people in your life will have to do the one thing you can’t wrap directly but can encourage with your gift: relax.

Our Care Package Bundle comes with three pretty and potent bath bombs designed to relax, rejuvenate and rebalance the life of anyone you gift them to—or even your own life, if somehow our care package doesn’t make it under the tree this year.

3. A Way To Scrub Away Their Stress

Since we’re on the topic of long luxurious baths, bath bombs aren’t the only way to give your loved one the gift of relaxation. If self-care isn’t high on your friend or family member’s to-do list, giving them the pampering products you know they don’t buy from themselves is a great way to encourage them to take some time for themselves and recharge.

Our Scrubs Holy Grail Set comes with four body scrubs meant to exfoliate, moisturize, and also come packed with a punch of helpful aromatherapy. Whether a relaxing lavender scrub to help them wind down at the end of a busy day is what they need or an energizing coffee scrub to help get them ready for the day is just the ticket, your loved one will have everything they need to turn their bath—or even just whatever quick shower they can fit into their schedule!—into an experience they look forward to every day.

4. A Way To Keep Their Cool on the Go

If you’re looking at this list and you just know that the busiest person in your life almost definitely isn’t going to want a gift that could potentially add more time to their already busy routine, don’t worry. There are still great ways to help your loved ones unwind and appreciate themselves without asking them to put their life on hold for even a minute. Bath bombs and body scrubs may cost a few too many minutes to indulge, and maybe even an oil diffuser seems too involved if your loved one truly lives life at a breakneck pace.

Enter roll-on essential oils. Roll-on essential oils are blends of essential oils and carrier oil, which makes them safe to use directly on your skin. This means that instead of needing to blend or diffuse essential oils on their own, all your loved one needs to do is uncap the roll-on, apply it to a pulse point or affected area, and bam—they’re instantly reaping the effects of aromatherapy without having to break their stride.

Our Roll-On the Good Vibes bundle is a great and varied selection of roll-on essential oils to help work a bit of me-time into the day even when there isn’t any time to spare. Especially if your loved one has expressed interest in aromatherapy or in more holistic methods of improving things like stress, headaches, or bad sleep patterns, roll-on essential oils are the perfect gift.

5. A Way To Spice Up Their Personal Life

This one can be challenging, we know—you’re definitely going to need to read the room a bit here and make sure that you have the sort of relationship with the person you’re giving the gift to for it to be well-received rather than a bit invasive… But if the busy person in your life has mentioned that they, like so many of us, have let the romance in their life fall a bit by the wayside, the MILF Bundle may be exactly what they need.

If there’s a sexy, sassy lady in your life who’s expressed missing the romance, this bundle which includes a sultry bath bomb and two types of essential oil which will make her feel like the goddess she is, is the perfect way to remind her that just because she’s busy, doesn’t mean the spark has to die too. Whether she’s looking to spice things up again in her relationship, get back into dating or just rediscover the sensual love she used to feel for herself, it’s a thoughtful and subtle gift to remind her that she’s special, and worth appreciating.

In Conclusion

It may seem hard to figure out the perfect gift for your loved one if they always seem on the go. You don’t want to get them something they may not like and need to return—knowing that they’ll never find the time—and even things like gift cards or certificates can feel inappropriate because you can be almost certain those things won’t fit into their busy schedules.

Because aromatherapy can be a great way to help people unwind and take some me-time without taking too much time or effort, any of these bundles will make a great gift for the busy people in your life!
