If you know someone who has trouble finding their way to Snooze Town or just loves getting those Z's, these sleep-related gifts could be exactly what they need! Some of these I've personally tried and can vouch for, and others would be things I'd LOVE to get as a gift (speaking as someone who really, really loves her bed).
This eye mask and headphone combo blocks out the light and connects to your phone so you can listen to white noise, relaxing music, or a meditation as you drift off for the night. It fits comfortably on the face to help you get that immersive sleep experience.
Anxiety can be sleep-ruiner, but people are loving weighted blankets to soothe their bodies and help them relax — it’s like getting a big hug. This item should be a staple in everyone’s household for those nights when you need a little extra comfort. If you know your friend doesn’t have one yet, think about getting them one as a gift.
I’m a side sleeper, and I find it more comfortable to have a pillow between my knees and one to hug, so this body pillow is the perfect 2-in-1 option! It's just the right size to snuggle and drift off to sleep and a fun gift for anyone.
Don’t underestimate the power of a scented pillow mister for sleep. I rebuy this spray whenever I run out — it smells great, and there’s something to be said for the routine of spraying my pillows before bedtime that helps me feel ready to sleep. This is a nice go-to gift for someone when you're unsure what to get them!
This deck of cards adds a bit of fun to nighttime (and morning!) rituals. The cards are a mix of mantras, yoga poses, and reflections that will either help you get into sleep mode or kickstart your day when you wake up. So instead of scrolling your phone, you can draw one of these instead.
As someone who loves to sleep and happens to be a curly girl, a silk pillowcase makes a difference in the level of bedhead I wake up with. It’s beneficial for all hair types, though, and is better for your skin than a regular old pillowcase. This one is a great gift idea for just about anybody!
Acupressure doesn’t just induce sleep, but it helps with symptoms of anxiety and stress, which can both keep people awake at night. This acupressure mat creates some unique sensations! It’s a little pokey when you first lay down, of course, then as you settle in, there’s a nice feeling of warmth and tingling. It can be used in bed before sleep or on the ground for even more pressure, but it's an amazing relaxation tool.
Since I really like my sleep, I sometimes have difficulty waking up in the morning. Noisy alarms start my day off in a state of annoyance. But a gentle alarm clock that simulates natural light like the sunrise? Now that’s a peaceful way to greet the day.
I know a few people who love this particular set of pajamas. The material is slightly cooling, so those who run a little warm while they sleep will appreciate them. And they'll make you feel put together, even at bedtime.
Is the person you’re buying a gift for also a reader? Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams by Matthew Walker is a great gift for someone who loves their sleep — or someone who could use more of it.
First, having a better understanding of why sleep is important will encourage you to get to bed at a decent hour. Secondly, reading in bed is an amazing tactic to fall right to sleep, speaking from personal experience.
One thing my mother-in-law does when we visit in the winter and the basement’s a little chilly is turn on this heated blanket in the guest bed! It makes for the coziest night of sleep ever. Even just curling up on the couch with this blanket would be lights-out for me. Definitely a fun idea for someone who’s always cold and loves all things snuggly.
Robes have been around for a long time for reason, but I think it’s hard to convince ourselves to invest in a nice one. That’s why this plush robe would make an awesome gift for someone who needs an upgrade (like me!). It’s vibrant and cute and will keep you warm and cozy before bed.
I don’t know about you, but I require almost complete darkness to be able to fall asleep. These blackout curtains are a must in the bedroom, especially if you know someone who sleeps during the day or always has bright lights shining in their window at night. You might want to consult them for a color preference, but these would still make a cool and functional gift.
When it comes to the clothes I wear, I prioritize being cozy most of the time. This giant hoodie is the perfect end-of-day outfit to get relaxed and ready for bedtime. It’s a little too bulky to wear as pajamas, but it’s pretty nice to take a quick nap in!
There are plenty of sleepy time teas to choose from, and I’ve been on the hunt for one that’s not so chamomile-forward. This Cup of Calm tea is flavored with lavender and mint, which is most of what you taste, and it's a great way to unwind before bedtime.
Did you know rubbing your eyes and face actually triggers a hormone that starts to slow your heart rate and help you relax? That’s why this eye massager is an amazing gift for anybody, but especially for someone who loves to sleep. Honestly, this seems like it would be lovely any time of day just for a little stress relief!
How adorable is this sleepy sloth mug? Sometimes, I feel like I identify with sloths. Get this for the person in your life who really loves to nap (and enjoys warm drinks). You could even pair it with that relaxing tea for a sleepy-time gift set!
Lots of people swear by using essential oils for different purposes, and sleep is definitely one of them. This “Calm” roll-on version makes application easy and includes natural ingredients like sage and peppermint to relax you. Apply it to your wrists, the soles of your feet, the back of your neck, and your temples to maximize the effects. This could be great for someone who needs a little help relaxing at night (or any time of day).
I love Dr. Teal’s Sleep Blend Bath Salts and use it frequently! Especially after a long day or tough workout, it’s the perfect way to unwind, relax your muscles, and get ready to drift off to Dreamland. Plus the lavender and chamomile scents stays with you, making you feel even more ready for bed!
The Gift of Sleep
Picking out a gift for someone who likes to sleep is easy because there’s lots to choose from — and it's tough for the same reason! You could get them one really awesome luxury sleep item, or make up a fun sleepy-time gift basket with a variety of items. Either way, they’re going to love it!
