Gift that says "relax"

juellie1962November 27, 2012

I was planning on giving a friend a garden stake that is metal, has a glass bulb on it and a little metal sign welded on that says "relax". Well, of course they are no longer available at the store I saw them just a few weeks ago.

I don't want to give her a spa basket, gift card for massage or anything like that. Does anyone know of any signs (hopefully yard art) or anything that says "relax" (this is what she needs to do badly!).

Try googling "relax" for any images. I googled "Breathe"--something that slows me down all the time--and found lots of sign possibilities in images. Like this one from etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62776361/just-breathe-sign

I googled "relax sign" and found a number of possibilities: for example, http://www.aw-nauticalgifts.com/beach-signs/661-wood-and-tin-relax-nautical-beach-sign.html. But what about making one yourself? It seems a homemade sign would be a great gift. . .and easy to do. The google images have lots of ideas.

Thanks Marita! We did consider making one; my dh is even a welder! But I have to present this gift this weekend and I procrastinated. :( No time to fabricate.
Thanks for the links!

How about a dry or artifical flower arrangment with some sort of scene with animals, (if she like them). Do you have a flower shop? Nursery? Hobby Lobby? also look in your newspaper for local small gift type shops. We have the Pride of Dakota products and they have some great soups, pancake mixes, cookies, candles etc all made in ND. Do you have anything like that where you live?

Thanks for the suggestions Marie. I found an etsy shop that has a metal "Relax" on a garden stake. Frustrating to buy because my dh is a welder....but at least I'm supporting small business'. Now, I just pray it makes it here by the time I need it!
