5 Stress Balls that make Great Motivational Gifts

April is stress awareness month, and given current times, I can’t think of a more important month to think about. People across the city, state, country, and world have all sorts of issues being thrown at them every single day. Stress ball gifts may not solve the problem, but they certainly aren’t going to hurt.

My daughter fell in love with stress balls some number of years ago. I brought home one from a conference—a red apple—and every time she’d get angry or mad, we’d tell her to squeeze the apple. It worked! There is something about them (besides their usefulness when getting blood taken) that helps calm and sooth. Wait! Is that why they give then to me when I’m getting blood drawn? I always figured it was to get the blood pumping. But maybe I’ve been wrong all this time. Maybe it was to calm me down. Anyway…

If you know someone who’s feeling a little stressed out these days, stress ball gifts may be the perfect answer. There are all sorts of stress balls out there. I’ve focused on some motivational ones for this post, because we can all use a little motivation in our lives, can’t we?

If you’re looking more for the calming effect stress ball gifts might provide, this set of three is a great choice. It’s got way more soothing sayings, like “Be quiet. Be calm.

If you really want to go all in on the motivation, this set of 5 has got it down. With sayings like “I can, I must, I will” and “Dream Big” this set is great for just about anyone.
