Sometimes, all someone needs is a hug or few during a tough time. Yet, you won’t be able to always be there for them when you have numerous other commitments to attend to.

In some cases, you can even make your own weighted blanket to help reduce any worries they may have when they are sleeping.
A salt lamp
Himalayan salt lamps are a unique choice, and you may wish to opt for candles instead. However, they can emit a softer glow that helps improve the air quality of people surrounding them, which could be a reassuring presence for your loved one in their time of need.
