People who love to sleep aren’t shy about their affinity for the activity. And that’s a good thing. Because it’s easier than ever to buy for your pal who needs help getting his 8-hours-a-night because of noisy neighbours, or your overworked partner who daydreams about being in bed as soon as they clock in.
Advancements in the sleep industry have introduced high-tech linens, white-noise earbuds and healing tonics into our lives, which make for genuinely useful Christmas gifts for anyone you know that’s sleep-deprived.
The truth is, you don’t quite realise how amazing a new, comfortable, calming bedtime staple is until you have it. And considering that one in three adults don’t get enough sleep, you may want to buy two of each item below—one for someone on your list and another for yourself.
Sheet snobs will find their new favourite linens in this impossibly sleek set from environmentally-friendly brand All Bamboo. They’re hypoallergenic and infused with organic bamboo, which helps them absorb bacteria, prevent odours and reduce sweat. The result? You don’t have to wash them as often as cotton sheets. Win win.
This ultra-soft, seriously warm, big-enough-for-two blanket is perfect for living room hangover nappers and always-cold overnight guests alike.
BOSE noise-masking sleepbuds
If the sounds of city streets keep you or someone you know up at night, trade them in for rolling waves, rustling leaves or singing crickets. These earbuds you wear to sleep help block outside noise and introduce masking ambient sounds—a combination that makes for an excellent night’s sleep.
Unplug meditation app
Try a 30-day meditation challenge with this mindfulness app – perfect for a little R&R before bedtime and calmer days ahead.
Just look at these PJs. You could go out-out in these and no one would notice the difference. But the best part isn’t the style, it’s the ultra-soft satin feel of this premium nightwear.
Tea Forte gift box
Sipping one of the teas in this set is a great way to wind down at the end of the night. Plus, the herbal blends are caffeine-free, so falling asleep won’t be a problem (especially with the chamomile, which has been used as a treatment for insomnia for years).
Gaiam eye mask
There’s some evidence that suggests lavender has been proven to send you to sleep by lowering your heart rate and blood presure, so it’s a smart idea to plant that scent directly on your face come bedtime.
Pursoma bath soak
Know someone that’s staring at a screen all day? This mineral soak with green clay and sea salt will help them wind down before bed.
Hooded bath robe
If you’ve inherited your dad’s distain for anyone turning the heating up in winter, we’ve got your back. Gift your partner this premium hooded towelling robe and watch your bills stay low all season. Happy days.
Faux shearling slippers
Popping out for a pint of milk in your Sunday casuals will never be the same again. Time to live your most stylish life in these incredibly comfy shearling slippers.
Know someone that’s jealous of bears hibernating for winter? Follow suit: get them to retreat into their own cave (or bedroom, whatever) and sleep winter away in this high-neck fleece lounge top.
