12 Relaxing Gifts for Your ASMR-Obsessed Friend

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, or more commonly known as “ASMR,” is the latest social media and YouTube trend, full of people whispering, cutting up soap, and eating a large amount of food (try #asmreating). The common goal is to make you feel that tingly feeling on the back of your neck that comes from things like a knife scratching a plate or nails on a chalkboard, only from more pleasant things. ASMR videos are said to relieve stress, anxiety, and insomnia. However, ASMR can be fun for all! How can a video of someone methodically destroying a bar of soap not be relaxing? If you have a friend who has sent you a calming video of some sort, here are 12 gifts to let them live out their ASMR dreams IRL.


1. Kimkoo Vibrating Head Massager ($9): The tingling sensation your ASMR-obsessed friend is craving is bound to be achieved from this head massager.

light projector and speaker

2. LBell Ocean/Nature Sounds Light Projector ($20): This mesmerizing light projector has a USB port to allow you to plug in your own music, so you can enjoy as many tapping videos as your heart desires. But if nature is more your speed, it also comes with four different ocean and nature sounds. Because what’s more soothing than branches cracking and waves crashing?

humidifier

3. URPOWER Ultrasonic Air Humidifier ($22): The bubbling sound of this humidifier and the soothing scents it releases will not only lull you to sleep but also tickle the back of your neck.

essential oils

4. Anjou Essential Oils Kit ($14): These oils are perfect for your diffuser, but they’re also multifunctional in the world of ASMR. LauraLemurex ASMR shared a video to YouTube that showed the unboxing of the oils. Be sure to enjoy the sounds of the sleeve sliding off and the tapping of the oil bottles together before actually using them.

sleep phones bluetooth

5. SleepPhones Bluetooth Headphones ($100): Take the satisfying sounds of ASMR one step further with these warm headband-style Bluetooth phones and fall asleep to whatever sounds you like (we suggest rolling marbles).

glow in the dark perler beads

6. Perler Beads ($17): While some might find these beads perfect for crafts and making fun fridge magnets, an ASMR fan will enjoy sticking their hand in the jar, rolling the 11,000 beads between their fingers, and listening to the sound the beads make as they land back in the bucket. An added bonus is that they also glow in the dark.

colorful bath bombs

7. Lazy Palms Fizzing Bath Bombs ($17): Give these to someone to use with or without a bath. Your friend can enjoy the fizzing sound as a bath bomb connects with water or they can crush one into little pieces… and then drop it in a tub later.

gel eye mask and neck mask

8. Verona Summer Gel Bead Eye Mask and Neck ($24): One function for this mask would be to stick it in the fridge until it’s cool and then place it on your face or neck to relax. Another (ASMR) function might be to take it out of the freezer and listen to the relaxing sounds of the gel beads cracking and coming back to room temperature between your fingers.

peel off face mask

9. Yovanpur Peel Off Face Mask and Brush ($9): Yes, this charcoal mask is great for your skin. But the feeling of brushing the mask onto your face and the sensation of peeling it off will definitely give you goosebumps.

diy slime kit

10. ESSENSON DIY Slime Kit ($21): This is the slime kit to end all slime kits. It comes with premade slime and all the mix-ins of any ASMR person’s dream: foam beads, real beads, glitter… the list goes on. ASMR or not, this is a perfect DIY gift all around.

stress relieving coloring book

11. Stress Relieving Coloring Book ($17): From the pencils scratching and tapping against the paper to the sound of the pages turning, coloring is one of the most relaxing forms of ASMR. This coloring book kit comes with pencils and envelopes, so your friend can send you their beautiful coloring creations when they’re done (assuming they don’t end up just flipping the pages back and forth).

12. Kshion Chunky Knit Blanket ($35): Sleeping with this blanket is already dreamy, and for your touchy-feely ASMR friend, it will be pure heaven. They can slide their hands through the large knit openings or simply feel its soft wool as they fall asleep.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
