Whatever the cause, stress is an unavoidable fact of life. So, it's always a good idea to share some Zen with those closest to you — especially during the holidays.

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.

When we release our 2018 gift guides, we make sure all prices are current. But, prices change frequently (yay, deals!), so there’s a chance the prices are now different than they were the day of publication.

  • 1. Sunbeam Renue Microplush Tension Relief Neck and Shoulder Heating Wrap, $35, Amazon

TODAY editors, writers and experts take care to recommend items we really like and hope you’ll enjoy! Just so you know, TODAY does have affiliate relationships. So, while every product is independently selected, if you buy something through our links, we may get a small share of the revenue.

If your loved one is looking for some soothing warmth, this neck wrap may do the trick. It contours to the shape of their upper shoulders and delivers therapeutic heat. Perfect for Mom, Dad, Grandma, or Grandpa.

  • 2. Celestial Silk 100 Percent Momme Mulberry Silk Charmeuse Pillowcase, $38, Amazon

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!

  • 3. Kiehl's Since 1951 Merry Masking Set, $39 ($54 value), Nordstrom

Perfect for an at-home spa day, this set is an invitation for some pampering. In the pretty box they'll find an assortment of face masks made from natural ingredients like ginger leaf and calendula for hydrating and firming skin. Now, all you have to do is sit back and relax.

  • 4. HUE Striped Onesie Pajamas, $24-$60, Amazon

  • 5. Trapp No. 25 Lavender de Provence 7-ounce Poured Candle, $28, Amazon

When it comes to setting the mood for serenity, don’t underestimate the power of scent. This soy wax candle will fill the room with the unmistakable and relaxing aroma of fresh-cut lavender from Provence.

  • 6. Sephora Collection Cucumber Eye Mask, $5, Sephora

This functions like a sheet mask, but for your eyes! Each natural fiber patch is infused with cucumber extract and aloe to refresh, smooth and reduce puffiness around the eyes. Plus, its size makes it an ideal stocking stuffer.

  • 7. Peace Yoga Zafu Meditation Cushion, $20-$30, Amazon

Making mindfulness a priority? When it comes to meditation, it helps to have a comfortable cushion. And this buckwheat-filled, round, cotton bolster is the best!

  • 8. Beauty by Earth Bath Bomb Gift Set, $30, Amazon

Also available at Walmart.

After a long day, there’s no better way to unwind than with a soothing soak. For a aluxurious 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.

  • 9. Langria Bath Tray, $39, Amazon

It's going to be really hard for us not to buy this one for ourselves. This bath caddy comes with adjustable arms, a smartphone slot, a wine glass holder and a book stand. Imagine how much 'me' time your loved one can get with this little treasure!

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

  • 10. Jaxx 6-Foot Cocoon, $222, Amazon

If all your giftee wants is a cozy spot to binge-watch "This Is Us," we suggest this amazing cocoon. It's $222 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.
