Gifts for Someone Who Needs Better Sleep
1. Eye Massager
This eye massager is an excellent gift idea to help someone relax and get to sleep easier. The massagers, heat, and music help relax the muscles around the eyes.
It’s portable size and rechargeable battery make it easy to take on-the-go. The headband is adjustable, so everyone can get just the right fit.
Val of The Common Cents Club has this eye massager in white and uses it whenever she has trouble falling asleep, needs a darker room, has a headache, and she even took it on their last family roadtrip to help her get better sleep in the car. It works!
2. Weighted Blanket
A weighted blanket is a must for anyone struggling to sleep. If the person you’re buying a gift for doesn’t have one of these yet, order one for them!
These blankets can help relax your whole body, making them a perfect gift idea for kids or adults who need to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
Val of The Common Cents Club has weighted blankets for 3/4 members of her family. They’re a great gift idea for someone who needs better sleep! Try this kids’ weighted blanket if you’re looking for a child.
3. Coop Pillow
If the person you’re looking to get a gift for has any type of neck pain from sleeping, a Coop pillow could be the right gift idea.
It’s completely customizable so you can get just the right balance of support and comfort your body needs by removing the incredibly soft and squishy foam filling. Suitable for back-, stomach-, or side-sleepers.
Val of The Common Cents Club has this pillow too. It was a bit of a splurge but after too many nights of disrupted sleep and a sore neck, this purchase was made and she has no regrets! It would make a great gift for someone who needs more sleep!
4. Melatonin Tablets
For a cheap gift to help someone get better sleep, try these dissolvable melatonin tablets. They dissolve quickly, have a mild pleasant flavor, and work faster than sleep aides you swallow.
As with the other gifts on this gift guide, these help most people fall asleep faster and get a better night’s sleep.
Val of The Common Cents Club has used these and gives them the thumbs up for better sleep! IF you are looking for a kid, try these Zarbee’s melatonin instead.
5. Magnesium Lotion
Magnesium lotion is another inexpensive gift idea that can be added to a sleep-themed gift basket for someone who needs better sleep.
Magnesium is a powerful mineral that may promote a relaxed and calm feeling before bed. It can also be used to help relieve pain from leg cramps or constipation.
Val of The Common Cents Club uses Earthley’s Good Night Lotion for herself and her children every night before bed! Earthley’s products are clean, plant-based, and free of preservatives, fragrances, parabens, allergens, and GMOS. If you like these type of products, check out her review of Earthley products.
6. Earthley Sleepy Time Drops
Another idea for better sleep is Earthley’s Sleepy Time drops. It’s a gentle, kid-safe herbal extract that uses catnip, skullcap, and passionflower.
The B-vitamins help promote a calm mood and ease stress–a perfect addition to any bedtime routine.
Yup, Val of The Common Cents Club uses this for her family too and highly recommends!
7. Wake Up Light Clock
Have you tried a wake up light sunrise clock yet? The light simulates a sunrise at your set alarm time, so you can wake to gradual light before any noise begins. Let me tell you, it’s such a nicer way to start the day!
You can also use these as a sound machine by picking a sound and timeframe to help you fall asleep.
There are many different nature sounds and ways you can customize the lights and sounds to fit your preferences.
Val of The Common Cents Club used one of these for years until her children stole both she’s purchased! They love falling asleep to the crickets sound. I’m guessing their house will have one for all 3 bedrooms soon. 😌
8. Silk Sleep Mask
Help your body get to sleep faster and stay sleeping longer with a silk sleep mask.
Reviewers love that this eye mask is filled with premium mulberry silk, is soft, and breathable.
Choose from many stylish colors and patterns.
9. Flannel Sheets
Soft, warm flannel sheets are a must if you hate getting into a cold bed!
These are 100% cotton flannel, so they’re more breathable than the polyester fleece sheets. This is key so you don’t overheat and also if you share a bed with someone who runs warmer than you.
Val of The Common Cents Club finally got a set of flannel sheets two winters ago. They’ve been the perfect solution for a cold bed during the freezing Midwest winters.🥶
10. Relaxation Tea
An easy gift for better sleep is relaxation teas!
This sampler pack includes three soothing caffeine-free teas:
- Honey Lavender Stress Relief
- Comforting Chamomile
All three taste great and invoke feelings of relaxation, rest, and comfort.
11. Mobile Phone Jail
If scrolling your phone is a late night or middle of the night temptation for you, invest in a phone jail to allow your mind and eyes to rest.
It can be used for adults or kids as a fun way to keep phones away for awhile.
While The Common Cents Club family doesn’t have a phone jail, our rule is that phones stay out of bedrooms at night. This could be useful to help you create a habit of less screentime at night.
12. Epsom Salt
- Stress Relief
- Pain Relief
- Regulate Electrolytes, Muslce, and Nerve Function
- Prevent Blood Clots, Strokes, & Improve Circulation
- Eliminating Toxins
- Ease Inflammation
If you’re not a lavender fan, there is Fragrance Free Epsom Salt too!
13. Rechargeable Reading Light
Reading is a great way to wind down for a restful night’s sleep. So why not gift an inexpensive rechargeable reading light?
This lightweight, customizable book light has 3 different colors and each color has 3 levels of brightness. It has a rechargeable battery that lasts for 80 hours, making this a practical and simple gift idea.
Yep, Val of The Common Cents Club can attest to these too! She’s gifted them three times and finally got one for herself. They get used regularly and are great for road trips too!
14. Neck and Back Massager
Massages relax your muscles and are an excellent way to prepare your body for a good night of sleep.
If you know someone who could use more massages, this is an awesome gift idea that just may help them get better sleep too!
Val has gifted this massager to others and has been told they “love it!”
15. Pregnancy Pillow
This last idea is a perfect gift idea for a pregnant woman struggling to sleep.
A large, U-shape full body pillow can provide essential support for your back, hips, legs, and belly.
Although designed for pregnancy, plenty of people who are not pregnant have also used pillows like these to help get comfortable while sleeping.
This pregnancy pillow is large but it was a game-changer when Val could not sleep during trimesters two and three. Check out these luxury gift ideas for expecting parents for the perfect gift for that expecting couple!
