Need some help picking out the perfect calming and comforting present? From silk pillowcases and cozy pajamas to soothing bath bombs and scented candles, the gifts ahead are guaranteed to give stressed-out family and friends what they really want...some serenity.

Celestial Silk 100 Percent Momme Mulberry Silk Charmeuse Pillowcase, $37, Amazon

TODAY has affiliate relationships, so we may get a small share of the revenue from your purchases. Items are sold by the retailer, not by TODAY. All prices are subject to change and items could sell out based on the merchant’s inventory.

A silk pillowcase is instantly luxurious. Plus, it prevents wrinkles, and nixes that dreaded bedhead. It even comes wrapped and ready to gift. Sweet dreams!

HUE Onesie Pajama , $20-$42, Amazon

These snuggly jammies feature an adorable pattern and soft fabric that will keep you cozy (but not hot) all night long. Trust us when we say you’re not going to want to take them off.

Beauty by Earth Bath Bomb Gift Set, $30, Amazon

After a long day, there’s no better way to unwind than with a soothing soak. For an ultraluxurious experience, toss a therapeutic fizzer into the tub. Each individually wrapped bath bomb blends mineral-rich Epsom and sea salts, detoxifying clay, nourishing cocoa and shea butters and aromatic essential oils.

Pair it with this quilted bath cushion (yes, cushion) and your loved one will be the epitome of zen.

Jaxx 6-Foot Cocoon, $229, Amazon

If all your giftee wants is a cozy spot to binge-watch "This Is Us," we suggest this amazing cocoon. It's $229 and has a respectable 4.5 stars on Amazon. Just remember to bring snacks ... once you plop down into it, we can't promise it'll be easy to get back out.

Sunbeam Renue Tension Relief Heat Therapy Pad, $30, Amazon

If your loved one also needs some pain relief, this neck wrap may do the trick. It contours to the shape of their upper shoulders and delivers soothing therapeutic heat. Perfect for mom, sad, grandma, or grandpa.
