We all have that friend—the sleepy friend. The one who shows up late, coffee in hand, ready with their well-worn excuse: “Sorry, I fell asleep!”
This person is never shy about leaving a party or gathering to head to bed, or maybe they’ll just curl up on the couch in the corner, right here … just for a minute.
If this friend were in the movie Snow White, they’d be Sleepy, for sure.
But now that it’s time to find the perfect gift for the Sleeping Beauty in your life, you might be racking your brain on what to get this special individual. Especially because all they seem to want is more sleep.
Fear not, we’ve outlined a collection of gifts for people who love to sleep.
This person might be able to fall asleep anywhere, but why not help them make the most of their favorite hobby by giving this sleep lover a gift that will really take their snooze game to the next level?
For that, appeal to your sleep lover’s senses with the following:
Whether you give the gift of light, sound, or scent to the sleep lover in your life, these gifts are one way to help anyone find a deeper sleep more quickly. Plus, with these three gifts for sleep, it’s simple and easy to find a sound machine, night light, or diffuser that also adds style and interest to any room.
Prioritize relaxation when giving a gift to someone who loves to get their beauty sleep. When it’s time to get some shut-eye, they’ll be ready to turn off the world and fall into a deeper, more restful slumber.
Here are a few ideas to help slumberers sleep a little better and longer:
Studies have found that limited screen time and more intentional relaxation time can help improve and increase beauty sleep.3 So even if you think they’re already getting enough deep sleep, you can show the sleep-loving person in your life how to make the most of their shut-eye, with any of these simple gifts for better sleep.
What about revamping their actual bed? While you can certainly gift the sleep-lover in your life with a pillow-soft mattress or comfy mattress topper, you can also help them transform their bedding into a cushiony oasis come bedtime.
Experts recommend replacing your pillow every one to two years, and now is your chance to help remind your sleepy friends that having the right pillow is crucial for a great night’s sleep.4
When choosing the perfect pillow, keep in mind how this drowsy person sleeps:5
Soft, silky sheets can transform any bed into a cozy slumber cocoon—and they’re a great gift for sleepers in need of a healthier, deeper sleep.6
When shopping for cozy bed sheets, consider the feel and material of the fabric:
Increasing in popularity, weighted blankets use deep pressure stimulation, which may support the production of serotonin (the happy hormone) and increase melatonin (the sleepy hormone).7 Experts believe this combination may lead to more restful deep sleep.8
When choosing a weight, find a weighted blanket that weighs 10% of the sleeper’s body weight.
If you’re still not sure what to give to someone who loves sleeping, don’t be afraid to go back to the basics. Remember, when it comes to those who love to sleep, choose a gift that elevates their feelings of comfort and coziness.
Infuse their nighttime routine with warmth with one of the following gift ideas:
With one (or a few) of these gifts for sleep lovers in hand, your favorite sleeper is bound to drift off into a good nights sleep.
Some sleepers don’t like the idea of going to bed alone—or without a furry friend. For those who love their pets just as much as they love a good night of sleep, gift a cozy dog bed.
They’ll be able to fall asleep to the sound of their pup’s sweet snoring, and the foam exterior provides their dog with the perfect foundation for a night of romping through dreamscapes of flower fields and tasty treats.
