If you know somebody who could do with having some of the weight taken off their shoulders, this worry doll is a lovely gesture, and a good way of letting someone know you’re thinking of them.

The story goes that a Mayan princess named Lxmucane received a special gift from the sun god, which would allow her to solve any problem that a human could possibly worry about. The gift, a doll, was to be hidden under her pillow after she had told it her sorrows, fears and worries. The next morning, all of her worries had been take away by the doll as she slept.
