In my opinion, the best gift you can give someone this year is the gift of relaxation. After this year, we all need just a moment of peace and calm—whatever that means to you. For some people, it's curling up with a good book and losing themselves in another world. For others, it's just a nice bath. Then, you have friends who like to de-stress by working out, whether it's taking a walk outside and getting fresh air or doing a HIIT workout at home. Aromatherapy can be a good option to unwind, too.

The benefits of essential oils and aromatherapy seem endless. Certain oils can be used for stress and anxiety relief, some can promote better sleep, and others can clear your mind and help you focus. All of these benefits, plus the fact that they're pretty easy to try out, make essential oils an excellent gift idea for the people in your life who need a break (which is pretty much everyone, right?).

So I've compiled a list of the most thoughtful and stylish essential oil gift sets out there. And while your loved one gets to relax with these, you'll also catch a stress-relief break because these sets are just so easy to gift. We all win! Take a look at our picks below.
