10 Christmas Gift Ideas For Girls Who Love Sleeping

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.

                    How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                    How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                    Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

                    You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

                    Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

                    1. Work on the small tasks.

                    When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

                    Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

                    2. Take a break from your work desk.

                    Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

                    Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

                    3. Upgrade yourself

                    Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

                    The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

                    4. Talk to a friend.

                    Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

                    Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

                    5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

                    If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

                    Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

                    Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

                    6. Paint a vision to work towards.

                    If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

                    Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

                    Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

                    7. Read a book (or blog).

                    The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

                    Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

                    Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

                    8. Have a quick nap.

                    If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

                    9. Remember why you are doing this.

                    Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

                    What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

                    10. Find some competition.

                    Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

                    Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

                    11. Go exercise.

                    Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

                    Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

                    As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

                    Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

                    12. Take a good break.

                    Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

                    Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

                    Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
