What could be a more practical gift than the gift of better sleep? Whether you are on the hunt for a useful present for the toughie on your list or you’re trying to attract the holiday shopper to your store, we have ideas for you. While not an exhaustive list, below we’ve selected some unique sleep products that we think would make perfect presents this year.
Traditional Sleep Products
Let’s start with the classics! While there are plenty of sheets and pillows on the market, we’ve rounded up a few tried and true brands that we know best.
For sheet sets, PureCare, Malouf and Sleep & Beyond all offer high-quality sheet selections as well as other bedroom accessories and each brand has its own distinctive approach to manufacturing sleep products.
With more of a wellness focus, PureCare’s products are all oriented around clean and healthy sleep. In particular, its Celliant sheets offer recovery benefits. Utilizing a sateen woven blend of premium long staple cotton and Celliant infrared responsive fibers, they provide long-lasting comfort.
Nothing makes the holiday jollier than cozy flannel sheets and Malouf has them! What we love about Malouf products in general is the gorgeous presentation that makes them so gift worthy. Woven flannel sheets from Malouf offer an ideal combination of softness, durability, warmth and style.
Soft, naturally hypoallergenic, safe for you and for the environment— you can’t go wrong with an organic sheet set from Sleep & Beyond. In the sheet set, you’ll find two pillow cases, a flat sheet and a fitted sheet. The sheets are machine washable of course and even come in biodegradable packaging. The perfect gift for the do-gooder, earth mother in your life.
While pillows are a fairly personal purchase, they could be the right gift for a close relative—and there are so many new and intriguing types of pillows on the market today. Each of the products featured below from Blu Sleep, BEDGEAR and Metta offer a feature or benefit that sets them apart in the pillow market.
These colorful, comfortable pillows are not your grandma's pillow and will definitely make a statement under the tree! Blu Sleep’s gel pillows have holes in the foam to circulate air and many of the brand’s foam pillows come infused with essential oils. Manufactured in Italy, these pillows harness the power of nature to deliver more restful sleep.
BEDGEAR has a wide portfolio of pillows to meet the needs of all types of sleepers. From cooling and moisture-wicking to airflow-oriented pillows, there’s something for everyone and a variety of profile heights to take into consideration. What do they all have in common? They are meant to help the sleeper perform their best in their waking hours.
A pillow for anyone—back, side AND stomach sleepers—the Spiraled Wool Pillow from Metta touts organic certification and uses spiraled wool stuffing. Spiraled wool is created by tumbling raw wool fiber until spiral shaped balls are formed. The spiral shape ensures wool can best compress and recover, for optimum support and comfort.
Sleep Environment Enhancers
Creating a luxurious sleep experience goes beyond what's on your bed. From candles to cooling products, the following gifts cans help your loved ones create a cozy and relaxing bedroom environment.
While the Pillow Bar is typically known for its custom pillows and embroidered sleep accessories, the brand also offers scented candles said to inspire sweet dreams. With scents of gardenia and lavender these luxury candles deliver a truly serene olfactory experience.
Have a hot sleeper in your life? The OOLER bed cooling system might be the perfect gift for them. This hydro-powered technology is a luxurious cooling solution, working quietly to keep the bed at a consistent temperature throughout the night. The product includes a control unit, a mesh Chili technology pad and can be operated using an app.
Touted as a magical sleeping light, Casper’s glorified night light is specially designed to help the user sleep better. With a sleek design, the glow light gives off “just enough light” to find a midnight snack (and maybe even scare off any closet monsters!). In all seriousness, this lamp offers mood lighting in the evening that slowly dims for bedtime and softly wakes up the sleeper in the morning with a soft light. Sounds pretty nice!
Ranging from around. 15lbs-25lbs in weight, weighted blankets don't just keep you warm. The deep touch pressure they provide can help alleviate anxiety. We couldn't think of a more reassuring present for such an anxiety-filled year.
Designed to provide deep touch pressure support, the Dual Therapy Weighted Blanket from Brooklyn Bedding features a flippable and removable duvet cover: one side blankets the user in a traditional, cozy and warm blanket while the other side offers the tranquility of weight, coupled with an advanced cooling fabric.
Bearaby weighted blankets have a distinctively different construction than other weighted blankets on the market. Rather than filling the blanket with beads, the Bearaby weighted blanket consists of chunky, weighted knit loops that are soft as well as heavy enough to provide the therapeutic benefits for which weighted blankets are known. Bearaby blankets also come in bright colors as well as velvet, natural, cotton and kids options.
Presents For Your Partner
Everyone needs a gift for their special someone. We selected two choices that can also potentially end any bedroom disputes!
A great gift for couples, the Smart Nora can either be a hint from one spouse to the other—or a gift for oneself that results in a happier partner. Basically, the Smart Nora helps with snoring. It gets tucked under the pillow, and when it detects snoring, it adjusts the pillow to help tone it down and ease the sleeper’s position thus stopping the snore.
A much larger investment but perfect for a couple looking to gift each other one large purchase for the holiday, a new mattress from Posh+Lavish can help people avoid a sleep divorce. It’s exactly what it sounds like—the mattress is split at the top making it easier for one side of the bed to read or watch tv, while the other sleeps. It can also help account for differences in mattress firmness needs and more.
Sleep And Lounge Apparel
Everyone needs comfy clothes to wear around the house and to bed. The following items include comfy, breathable clothes and wearable blankets.
With so many trying to maintain safe social lives with outdoor, distanced hangouts, the Comfy makes a great gift for family and friends of all ages. These cozy loungewear items may not be the most fashionable, but they sure do look comfy and warm.
SHEEX offers a solid portfolio of men’s and women’s sleepwear all of which is made with its highly breathable performance fabric. From sporty nightgowns to comfy shorts and tees for bed, there’s a comfortable sleep outfit for those who sleep hot and those who need to warm up at night.
Sleep Kits And Subscriptions
