Put the ha ha ha in your ho ho ho. Don't let gift-giving woes interfere with your holiday cheer. Bedtime Network's Cindy Bressler has a list that helps both you and your loved ones get a better night's sleep.
‘Tis the season.
Who isn’t looking for that special something for that special someone?
But how do you please everyone on your list without making yourself crazy?
By giving the gift of SLEEP. After all, whether your special someone is 2, 22, 42, 62 or 82, they need it.
Here are some ideas for both the naughty and nice on your list:
The self-quantification movement has arrived and the Fitbit Force is the ideal gift for the person in your life who loves to keep track of things and enjoys a bit of healthy competition. The Force counts steps taken, distance traveled, stairs climbed and calories burned. This info gets tracked on Fitbit’s site. Of course, our favorite is the feature that tracks sleep patterns and the vibrating silent alarm. And for those who enjoy receiving the latest accessory but are not into the tracking, it also functions as a wristwatch. About $130. http://www.fitbit.com
Brooks Brothers pajamas
These classic men’s broadcloth pajamas are available in light blue and white and get softer and more comfortable the more you wash them. While they’re billed as men’s pajamas, this First Lady would love a pair. $99 at www.brooksbrothers.com
Up all night cami set by Wildfox Couture
Popular with teens and women, all Wildfox clothes are super soft and feature clever sayings that range from the cute to the provocative. You can pick one from the collection or give a Wildfox e-gift card and let your special someone pick for themselves. $98 http://www.wildfoxcouture.com/up-all-night-cami-set
Good Night Our World board books
With more than twenty titles, the subtitle to this series could be “this land is your land, this land is my land” (special shout out to the Guthrie clan). From the Beach to the Mountains and Virginia to Hawaii, author Adam Gamble has created a series that is perfect for the little ones on your list. These beautifully illustrated books feature images of the iconic places and they’ll make a perfect component to a child’s bedtime ritual. $9.95 http://bit.ly/1bh6UpM
Down Bed Socks
Made by the Iwata down factory of Kyoto, producers of down products since 1830, these socks are comfortable and lightweight enough to be worn in bed. At $145, they certainly seem like an indulgence but remember that wearing socks to bed can help you sleep better all year round. http://www.bedtimenetwork.com/features/the-doctor-is-in/473-sock-it-to-me
