Attention, All Stress Balls!

When it comes to stress relief, I generally turn to hanging out with friends, watching funny television, and just plain trying to forget about the cause of my tension. Massages work wonders, too. But after seeing these new “chic” stress balls, I might have to reconsider my methods. Bloom Putty took the basic idea of a stress ball and reinvented it, going for a more fashion-forward and adorable look. Each different ball of putty has its own name and scent, like Apple Jill, Buttered Popcorn, Icing on the Cake, and Shake Like Jelly. Fear not. For those who are anti-smells, there are a few scent-free options. The putty is silicone-based, nontoxic, and latex-free, plus they’ll apparently never dry out. Each retails for $11.95, but really when you think about it, that’s cheaper than a 10-minute massage at nail salons. I’ll take one … or five! [Bloom Putty via Trend de la Creme]
