It is the reality of many: getting a full night’s rest is a gift, if not a miracle! Sadly, you can’t add ‘good night’s sleep’ to your cart. But you cant get your friends (or yourself) some really effective sleep-related gifts. We’re talking cosy pajamas, eye masks, noise machines and noise blocking earbuds. All you need to get in those precious Z’s.
Gentle pressure sleep mask.
People online are raving about the abilities of a weighted eye mask. It provides a soothing pressure that relieve tension in the face and blocks out light. And a more affordable sleep mask does not mean low quality. Opt for a traditional sleep mask made of skin-loving silk: blocks out light without irritating the skin.
Humidifier to ease their sinuses.
A humidifier boosts moisture levels in a room, which can help with sinuses, and prevent nasal passages from drying out during the night. For the dry winter-skin babes, a cool-mist humidifier can also keep your skin hydrated.
Temperature control Smart Mug
A temperature-controlled mug can keep their nighttime drink warm before bed, and in case they skrik awake and need a soothing drink. It can also keep their morning coffee warm for hours.
Rejuvenating night serum
Dry skin in winter is so bothersome! A soothing and ultra-hydrating skin mask will leave skin feeling refreshed and plump. Other serums with calming ingredients can help you unwind before bed, and help with any irritation and redness.
Struggling just to get warm under the covers? Give your friend a toasty sheet. Either a cashmere blend for extra warmth, or one made of bamboo and charcoal fiber to prevent odor and wick sweat.
Neck and back massager
Relieve the tensions of the day, with a neck and back massager. Because adulting has given us all tight muscles in our neck and shoulders.
A snuggly body pillow
Calling all side sleepers! Yes, even non-pregnant people can use this for a good night’s rest. There are all kinds out on the market: hypo-allergenic, temperature-regulating, ones stuffed with memory foam. It’s time to feel supported and cuddle straight to dreamland.
Don’t doubt the powers of a noise machine
Whether you have loud neighbours, there are distracting noises or just can’t sleep without noise: a white noise machine is great for you. The mini versions are space efficient and come in a variety of pretty colours. But you prefer diving into pure silence, invest in some noise-cancelling earplugs.
A comfy set of pajamas
There is nothing quite like putting on your bedtime lewk before jumping under the covers. Get your loved one a pair of super soft and stretchy PJs. If they’re not into wearing sets, you can also just buy them some boxer-style shorts or silky pajama pants. Even if they’re a warm sleeper, and kick the blankets off, they can still sleep comfortably in their PJs.
A set of headband headphones
Having fights with your earbuds or earphones in the night is so not it. Opt for a comfortable headband, with removable speakers, that can be pulled over your eyes to use as a sleep mask. Put on some soothing tunes or the sound of rain falling to whisk you off to sleep.
