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:

    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.

                    5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

                    Sleeping next to your partner can be a satisfying experience and is typically seen as the mark of a stable, healthy home life. However, many more people struggle to share a bed with their partner than typically let on. Sleeping beside someone can decrease your sleep quality which negatively affects your life. Maybe you are light sleepers and you wake each other up throughout the night. Maybe one has a loud snoring habit that’s keeping the other awake. Maybe one is always crawling into bed in the early hours of the morning while the other likes to go to bed at 10 p.m.

                    You don’t have to feel ashamed of finding it difficult to sleep with your partner and you also don’t have to give up entirely on it. Common problems can be addressed with simple solutions such as an additional pillow. Here are five fixes for common sleep issues that couples deal with.

                    1. Use a bigger mattress to sleep through movement

                    It can be difficult to sleep through your partner’s tossing and turning all night, particularly if they have to get in and out of bed. Waking up multiple times in one night can leave you frustrated and exhausted. The solution may be a switch to a bigger mattress or a mattress that minimizes movement.

                    Look for a mattress that allows enough space so that your partner can move around without impacting you or consider a mattress made for two sleepers like the Sleep Number bed.[1] This bed allows each person to choose their own firmness level. It also minimizes any disturbances their partner might feel. A foam mattress like the kind featured in advertisements where someone jumps on a bed with an unspilled glass of wine will help minimize the impact of your partner’s movements.[2]

                    2. Communicate about scheduling conflicts

                    If one of you is a night owl and the other an early riser, bedtime can become a source of conflict. It’s hard for a light sleeper to be jostled by their partner coming to bed four hours after them. Talk to your partner about negotiating some compromises. If you’re finding it difficult to agree on a bedtime, negotiate with your partner. Don’t come to bed before or after a certain time, giving the early bird a chance to fully fall asleep before the other comes in. Consider giving the night owl an eye mask to allow them to stay in bed while their partner gets up to start the day.

                    3. Don’t bring your technology to bed

                    If one partner likes bringing devices to bed and the other partner doesn’t, there’s very little compromise to be found. Science is pretty unanimous on the fact that screens can cause harm to a healthy sleeper. Both partners should agree on a time to keep technology out of the bedroom or turn screens off. This will prevent both partners from having their sleep interrupted and can help you power down after a long day.

                    4. White noise and changing positions can silence snoring

                    A snoring partner can be one of the most difficult things to sleep through. Snoring tends to be position-specific so many doctors recommend switching positions to stop the snoring. Rather than sleeping on your back doctors recommend turning onto your side. Changing positions can cut down on noise and breathing difficulties for any snorer. Using a white noise fan, or sound machine can also help soften the impact of loud snoring and keep both partners undisturbed.

                    5. Use two blankets if one’s a blanket hog

                    If you’ve got a blanket hog in your bed don’t fight it, get another blanket. This solution fixes any issues between two partners and their comforter. There’s no rule that you have to sleep under the same blanket. Separate covers can also cut down on tossing and turning making it a multi-useful adaptation.

                    Rather than giving up entirely on sharing a bed with your partner, try one of these techniques to improve your sleeping habits. Sleeping in separate beds can be a normal part of a healthy home life, but compromise can go a long way toward creating harmony in a shared bed.
