The holidays are coming. What’s not to love about this time of year? Oh right. The stress of finding the perfect Christmas or Hanukkah gift for everyone on your list. Let us help you out. Health-related gifts are always popular, and this year, if you want to take it to the next level, give the gift of sleep. We often talk about how critical good sleep is to your health. So here’s our Mattress Man Gift Guide: a few ideas sure to please all of the insomniacs — or sleep lovers — in your family or circle of friends.
The Mattress Man Gift Guide to better sleep
A new mattress is a luxurious gift for anyone you know well, including yourself! Why not resolve to get better sleep in the new year? If you’re waking up with aches and pains, or if you find that you’re tired throughout the day because you didn’t get enough sleep the night before, it’s probably time for a mattress upgrade.
You can also give your guests the gift of better sleep when they come to stay with you (for the holidays or any other occasion) by putting a new mattress in the guest bedroom.
An adjustable foundation gives the gift of restful sleep to those who struggle with allergies, congestion, sleep apnea, or reflux. An adjustable foundation can also help you truly customize your sleep experience. Think wireless remote controls, massage features, built-in USB ports, and alarm clocks that wake you up by raising the head of your bed. Our adjustable bases are compatible with a wide range of mattresses — both foam and innerspring.
A new set of sheets can make your bed feel brand new. Portuguese flannel sheets are perfect for the holidays, as they’ll get a lot of use in the winter months. The brushed 100% cotton weave has a velvety-soft touch that promotes cozy sleep and breathable comfort.
If the recipient of your gift sleeps hot, try a new set of Supima premium cotton sheets. Made of superior extra-long staple cotton that is 100% American-grown, this luxurious fabric gets even softer with every wash.
New pillows are as much of a treat as new sheets. For those who can’t get enough of the cool side of the pillow, give the gift of a high-tech phase change material pillow. Phase change material continually adjusts to body and environmental temperature, maintaining the optimum sleep temperature all night long.
For those who prefer natural down, try our down pillows filled with plush down clusters and a unique feather support core.
Sleep apps are a fantastic gift for the insomniac or analytics hound in your life. If you know someone who’s resolving to get healthier in the new year, you can contribute by gifting that person with the ability to track sleep, listen to calming sleep sounds, or relax with meditation before bed. A few great apps have a subscription fee that you could cover for the first year.
- Headspace. Meditation helps you relax, focus, and be more compassionate. It can also help you sleep better. Headspace has some free content, and a full year’s subscription costs $95. Download it for iOS or Android.
- Sleep Cycle. This app tracks your sleep patterns and gently wakes you up when you’re in your lightest sleep phase so you’ll get up feeling refreshed. The app has a free and a premium version for $30 per year. Download it for iOS or Android.
However you celebrate, here’s to a relaxing, refreshing holiday season filled with good sleep.
