10 Christmas Gift Ideas For Girls Who Love Sleeping

It’s surprisingly difficult to find the perfect gift for the girl who loves to sleep. Chances are, she is already very familiar with the usual items you would need for sleep and has all of them. For this person, it’s important to be a little more creative this holiday season. Here are some ideas that are guaranteed to impress:

1. A Fleece Photo Blanket

    Sure, you could go to the local Bed, Bath, and Beyond to find a plain throw blanket, but chances are the girl who loves to sleep already has a million of those. Putting your favorite photos together on a blanket will be a constant reminder of all the great times you’ve had together in between snoozing sessions.

    2. A really, really good pillow.

      A pillow can make or break your sleep quality. Cheap pillows just won’t do. When shopping for a pillow for the lady that loves to sleep, make sure it’s a goose down pillow or has some amazing features to it, like perpetual coolness. There’s nothing better than a sleeping surface that stays cool throughout the entire night.

      3. A fun sleep mask

        A sleep mask is a must for the girl who loves total darkness while she’s asleep, but traditional masks are so boring, they can bum anyone out – especially the person who shares her bed. Why not make it more fun with a silly mask she will look forward to putting on?

        4. A soothing sound machine

          Loving to sleep and falling asleep with ease are two very different things. This girl could love sleep, but toss and turn in order to quiet her mind. In order to ensure she experiences the soundest sleep possible in the shortest amount of time, get her a machine with soothing nature sounds like ocean waves or woodland birds.

          5. A clever mug to help make the transition easier

            For this girl, getting out of bed can be beyond painful. For this reason, it’s great to give her all the encouragement she would need in mug form. As she’s sipping her well deserved brew, she will remember your affinity for sarcasm and smile.

            6. Funny decals

              It’s not enough that she loves to sleep. She needs to let everyone else she loves it in as many ways as possible, and what better way to do that than with an adorable snoozing panda decal? There are hundreds of cute options out there…just get creative in your search! You can even make your own decal and design it with the girl receiving the gift in mind.

              7. Framed reminders of the time they spend sleeping

                Believe it or not, she’s not always sleeping. Sometimes she’s awake, even when she’s home. For those rare occasions some great wall art would be swell. You know, to remind her of her favorite activity.

                8. Sleep gear

                  No matter what we’re doing or where we are, we like to be dressed for the occasion. Just because no one will see her, doesn’t mean she still doesn’t want to be in style. With these cheeky pajamas, she will definitely be chuckling to herself as she drifts off.

                  9. A beautiful new bedspread

                  If you have a little bit more to spend, this bedspread will be sure to brighten up her room. It’s always nice to wake up to something cheery, so she will thank you for it. After all, who wouldn’t want to wake up in a field of poppies? No one, that’s who.

                  10. Microwaveable slippers

                    There’s nothing like putting on something extra warm on a cold winter’s night. Aside from a sweater straight from the dryer, we rarely get the opportunity.The girl who loves to sleep will be able to put on something extra cozy with these microwaveable slippers. 

                    Whichever gift you choose, rest assured that the girl who loves to sleep will love anything you give her so long as you do not wake her up to ask how she’s enjoying it.

                    The Top Fad Diets That Are Actually Worth the Hype

                    The Top Fad Diets That Are Actually Worth the Hype

                    You have probably seen enough fad diets to last a lifetime. Many have become popular overnight and left just as quickly.

                    Some fad diets, though, have actually passed the test of time and are making some headway in the nutritional world.

                    Outlined below are four fad diets that are actually beneficial for your health and wellness. Read on to find out why you should consider adopting one (or more) of these healthy eating styles today.

                    An important concept you should keep in mind is to disregard the term “diet” as it is typically used. The word diet implies the idea of restriction and removal. Instead, think of the word diet in this context as a healthy eating lifestyle.

                    Let’s take a look at some of these healthy eating lifestyles that have been categorized, by no fault of their own, as fad diets.

                    1. The Paleo Diet

                    The paleo diet, or ancestral eating, is simply eating the way your paleolithic ancestors would have up to 10,000 years ago, or when the agriculture age began.

                    The advantage now is you don’t have to do this in a loin cloth, unless you want to… The focus of this diet is proteins, vegetables, some fruits, nuts and seeds and some healthy fats.

                    In the paleo diet, there aren’t any grains, starchy carbohydrates, sugars, or dairy.

                    How Your Health Can Change With Paleo

                    The paleo diet is a good way to keep your blood sugar under control. It can also have a positive effect on type 2 diabetes, and can lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.

                    With this healthy eating lifestyle, people have also achieved good weight loss results and boast improved energy levels. [1]

                    It’s not just what’s in the paleo diet that’s important, it’s what’s NOT in it. There aren’t any processed and manufactured foods, junk foods, artificial ingredients or chemical additives.

                    Paleo is a way of eating that gets you more in tune with your body and, therefore, can provide a lot of benefits.

                    2. Whole30

                    The Whole30 diet is relatively new and owes its popularity to social media and the #Whole30 Instagram hashtag that allowed people to share and broadcast their success with the diet.

                    With Whole30 you are taking 30 days and focusing on nutritious whole foods such as meats, nuts and seeds, seafood, eggs, vegetables, and fruits.

                    During the month you are eliminating:

                    Advertising

                    • sugar
                    • alcohol
                    • legumes
                    • grains
                    • dairy
                    • soy

                    Whole30 is similar to paleo, but it goes a bit further eliminating sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup.

                    At the end of the 30 days, you strategically reintroduce those eliminated foods back into your diet to discover any possibility of health consequences from them or even potential food allergies.

                    Finding Out How Food Impacts You

                    Most people eat the same things so often and may not realize that certain foods are causing health consequences, as they’ve become accustomed to feeling lethargic and run down.

                    With Whole30 you get the chance to see how these foods may have a negative impact on your body. You’ll also reset your taste buds, which may have become desensitized from processed and artificial “foods” and excess salt.

                    This diet will help you regain your love of food… in a healthy way!

                    3. The Mediterranean Diet

                    The Mediterranean diet has been at the top of the list as a very effective diet for some time now.

                    For people in countries like Italy or Greece, this has simply been a normal way of life–along with higher activity levels, sunlight exposure, proximity to water, and lower stress.

                    Advertising

                    With the Mediterranean diet, the focus is on heart-healthy foods. It looks like this:

                    • Fruits & vegetables
                    • Whole grains
                    • Legumes & nuts
                    • Replacing butter with olive oil
                    • Using herbs and spices instead of salt
                    • Eating fish and poultry at least twice a week
                    • Moderate amounts of red wine

                    Help Your Heart & Overall Health With A Mediterranean Diet

                    Information from the Mayo Clinic shows that this diet reduces heart disease and lowers your “bad” LDL cholesterol. Studies involving 1.5 million people demonstrated that the Mediterranean diet was associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular mortality, along with overall mortality. [2]

                    With all these benefits, this is definitely a “fad diet” that’s worth the hype.

                    4. The Alkaline Diet

                    The alkaline diet is about changing the foods you eat so that you put your body into an alkaline state and out of an acidic state. When your body is too far on the acidic side it can result in a condition called acidosis. This can lead to issues in your body such as upset stomach, breathing difficulties, headaches, weakness and, fatigue. In extreme cases, it can result in shock, coma, or death.

                    The goal is to get your body in a more alkaline state, which results in overall better health. The focus is on including alkaline boosting foods such as fruits, nuts, vegetables, and legumes. You’re also wanting to reduce acidic foods such as low quality beef and poultry, dairy, eggs, grains, and alcohol.

                    Pros & Cons With The Alkaline Diet

                    The benefits that come from this way of eating is that reduction in inferior quality foods, processed items and alcohol. You may feel improved energy levels, mental clarity and even better joint health.

                    Advertising

                    People also report weight loss but again this may come from the reduction in calories from junk and processed foods but this is not a bad thing at all.

                    One con with this diet is that the pH value of the food you eat might not have an impact on blood pH, as your body is able to balance this pretty well on a day-to-day basis.

                    Follow These Fads for Better Health and Wellness

                    There can be a danger in categorizing things as a fad diet because fads come and go. People are always looking for the next big thing or a quick fix.

                    The four examples above buck that status quo. These diets, though mainstream, actually can give you benefits and aren’t going to go away anytime soon because they work.

                    What makes these diets special is that they boast real whole foods and the eliminate processed and manufactured junk.

                    The Big Takeaway:

                    Whatever way you choose to eat, the focus needs to be on whole unprocessed foods. Look for the cleanest, local and most natural things you can find for the benefit of your overall health and wellness. Your body and mind will thank you.
