I don’t know about you all, but December is a stressful time of year for me! Winter break comes at the perfect time of the year when I need to get back to relaxing and recharging my body and mind. One of my personal goals this year is to manage my stress. I sleep better, I am more present and doing undesired work tasks are easier. Today, I wanted to share 10 Stocking Stuffers For SLP’s that will help them relax. It is easier for me to relax when I have some special treats!
10 Stocking Stuffers For SLP’s That Will Help Them RELAX
Pretty much all of these items are things that help me to de-stress. Amazon affiliate links are included on some of the ideas for easy shopping! Anyone else blowing up amazon for holiday shopping? I wouldn’t be almost finished with my shopping if it weren’t for prime shipping. Just sayin.
1. Speechie Planner Stickers
SLP’s feel less stressed when they are organized! Kiwi Speech has cute IEP planner schedules. These are great for helping SLP’s stay organized and make their planners look pretty!
2. A Good Book To Read Over Winter Break
Having a good book to snuggle up to over winter break is such a relaxing activity for SLP’s. I can’t wait to read Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism this break! Here is a list of books that I recommend!
3. Manicure or Pedicure
There is something so relaxing about having someone massage and paint your toes! I love being able to get away for an hour and just sit.
4. Bath Bombs
I don’t know about you all, but sitting in my big bathtub with Bath Bombs is so relaxing! After having 10 IEP’s this month, I am ready to just soak. I totally put this on my Christmas wishlist.
5. Adult Coloring Books
My secret santa got me an adult coloring book. The repetitive motion of coloring is a helpful tool to quiet your mind. I am excited to drink a glass of wine and just sit on the couch coloring. As a child, I remember loving coloring. My kids and I love doing that together as an activity.
6. Make Up
I don’t know about you all, but getting a really fun lipstick, blush or eye shadow just makes me excited about getting up in the morning. When I have nice make up to wear to work on those all day IEP meetings, I feel more confident when sharing my recommendations. My friend Lisa sells Younique and I always order from her! Splurge cream shadow in Dainty is my jam. You can order under my party if you want!!
7. Think Putty
Have you heard of Crazy Aaron’s Think Putty? It is great for students with sensory needs, but I also love it as well! You can pull, twist and squeeze it. It comes in a tin can and never dries out. I use it when I need help with focusing or just re-setting my body after a draining day.
8. Fun Wine Glass
I enjoy a glass of wine during the week after a long day. Sipping on some red wine help me unwind after doing therapy all day. My mind can’t slow down sometimes. Drinking a good glass of wine in a fun glass is the way to go!
9. Essential Oils Necklace Diffuser
I love using essential oils to help me with relaxing, boosting my energy and keeping me healthy from nasty winter viruses! How cool is this necklace that also diffuses your favorite oil scent!?
10. Massage gift card
A massage is a gift that keeps on giving. When my husband got me a massage for my 30th birthday, I felt soooooo relaxed afterwards. Well, a relaxed wife/mom makes the whole house a lot happier lol! If I am way too stressed, the negative affects don’t just impact me! So, put a little massage on your list this year if you need to unwind and release.
These are some of my favorite gift ideas for STRESSED out SLP’s! What relaxing stocking stuffer ideas to you have?
