2. Rival Slow Cooker Crock Pot

I know, slow cooker may not be what you expected from a 'stress relief gift' guide, but hear me out. While they're not new, slow cookers have made a comeback because of their convenience. With today's stressful, busy lifestyles, who wouldn't like to throw a few things into a pot in the morning and come home to a house that smells great and a meal that tastes delicious? I like this crock pot because it doubles as a pretty attractive serving piece so you can literally have dinner on the table minutes after walking through the door. Talk about low-stress!
