When exploring ways to feel more centered during a period of extreme stress I came across an article that suggested using stress relief toys and accessories. Intrigued I decided to look into it some more and ended up spending hours checking out various stress relief toys and accessories available just on Amazon.com.
While there are hundreds listed on the site, here are my pick of top 20 stress relief toys and accessories based on reader reviews, personal experience, and feedback from family, friends, and readers.
#1 Aromatherapy Stress Relief Eucalyptus Candle
This Eucalyptus and Spearmint Candle by Bath & Body Works tops my list of stress relief accessories simply because I’ve used it. I can say from firsthand experience that it works really well to put me in a relaxed frame of mind.
The Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus and Spearmint Candle uses the aromatherapy benefits of eucalyptus and mint essential oils. Both of these scents work really well to calm your mind and relax your body.
It is a large, 3-wick candle and has a long burning time, which makes it totally worth the price.
You can place the candle it in your bedroom to relieve stress before you sleep or relax in your bathroom during a long bubble bath.

#3 Neliblu Stress Ball Squeeze Toys
This is a fun set of stress-relief toys that includes an assortment of relaxing and therapy balls that you can choose to use when you are feeling stressed.
You get 12 different toys with the Neliblu Stress Ball Squeeze Toys set, so you can keep them and use whichever one you feel like that day or give some away to someone who you know could do with it. Keep a few at the office on a shelf, where anyone can make use of them when they need to.
The set comes with a nice little booklet with different creative activities you can try out with the toys. Pretty cool!
#3 Swear Word Coloring Book – The Jungle Adult Coloring Edition
To be honest, I hesitated to get this … what if my son stumbled upon it? I kept picturing him rolling his eyes the next time I said I was ‘going to wash his mouth out with soap.”
But I used Amazon’s ‘look inside’ feature and I was hooked. I could see myself having a lot of fun coloring those cool images with swear words. I did read other user reviews and that was it. Am I glad I got it!
I love this Swear Word Coloring Book – The Jungle Adult Coloring Edition. The swear words are hidden intertwined within images of animals and other floral and abstract shapes, making it a fun stress-busting activity.
Coloring is becoming a popular activity for people of all ages. While there are plenty of coloring books for all ages, from toddlers and teens to adults, this particular book is more for adults. If you are an adult looking for a fun and creative way to relieve your stress, you’ll love this Swear Word Coloring Book.
Like the idea of using a coloring book for stress relief but prefer to buy one that does not have swear words? Check out this Good Vibes Coloring Book by Thaneeya McArdle.
#4 Impresa Squishy Stress Relief Balls
These Squishy Stress Relief Balls by Impresa are perfect for helping you calm when you’re having a particularly stressful time and would like to scream or punch a pillow but can’t.
One such time could be during a phone call with an angry customer or an irate boss. Pressing and squeezing the squishy stress relief ball will help relieve the building anger inside of you and keep you from exploding.
With this squishy stress relief balls set you will get 3 balls of different color. These are all latex-free, non-toxic, and BPA-free. The balls are strong and durable, made from thermoplastic rubber.
You can also use them to calm yourself down during a panic attack or give them to kids that are struggling with ADHD.
#5 Emoji Face Squeeze Balls
For another squeeze ball option, you can combine relaxation with fun with these funny Emoji Face Squeeze Balls by Rhode Island Novelty.
This is a set of 12 squeeze balls. Each squeeze ball has a different emoji face on it.
At just 3 inches in diameter, each one is small enough to hold in your plan and squeeze hard to relieve the stress you feel.
#6 PowerTRC Liquid Motion Bubbler
Here is a little different from the other stress-relief toys and accessories mentioned. The PowerTRC Liquid Motion Bubbler is not a stress-relief toy you physically play with. This is a desktop gadget that is designed as a glass container with a liquid motion timer.
Watching the colored liquid drip slowly down through the clear liquid is great for soothing away stress and helping you feel calmer and more centered before a big presentation or when you find yourself feeling distracted.
Measuring just 5×2.5×1 inches, the PowerTRC Liquid Motion Bubbler is easy to carry around. When the colored liquid has all dripped down you simply turn the gadget upside down and watch it go again.
#7 Gemstone Bracelet
This is an interesting stress-relief accessory because you can wear it all the time to get its calming benefits. This Gemstone Bracelet can help with a lot of different mental health conditions, including stress, anxiety and depression.
The way it helps is by using healing gemstones that can help with these conditions. This bracelet works for these mental ailments thanks to the black onyx, bloodstone, lava stone, and carnelian gemstones. All you need to do is wear it and it should naturally reduce your overall amount of stress.
