Man surprises woman with a sleep gift in a white box with red ribbons on Valentine's Day in a room with Red heart balloons

Although it seems like the Holiday Season has only just ended, it’s nearly February. Blink and before you know it, Valentine’s Day will be upon us! That means if you want to get your sweetheart a really good gift this year, and you do, you need to begin your preparations now. Waiting until the last minute means you won’t be able to order the best gifts, including top gifts to help sleep.

Wait, gifts to help sleep for Valentine’s Day? Yes! The truth is that giving things to help sleep is one of the most loving things you can do, because it shows you truly care about their health and happiness. Flower wilt, chocolate is eaten, and a gift certificate can only be used once. The benefits of sleep gifts just keep giving! Your loved one will fall asleep easier, get their deep rest throughout the night, and wake up refreshed every morning. They’ll have you to thank for it!

Great Gift Ideas for Sleep Improvement on Valentine's Day

The only thing left to decide is how to help someone sleep better with a gift. Don’t worry- we’ve got you covered!

Chamomile aromatherapy pillow

The scent of Chamomile is best known for promoting natural relaxation and helps people get restorative sleep. When your loved one sleeps on an aromatherapy pillow, they can smell the Chamomile all night long! For this, we recommend the Malouf Zoned Dough® Scented Pillow. Not only does it smell great, it offers the perfect combination of zoned support and comfort. It is carefully made from memory foam, so it both cradles your head and supports your neck. The breathable Tencel™ cover aids in obtaining the perfect sleeping temperature. 

Calming pillow spray

If your partner already has a pillow they love, you don’t need to replace it just to keep get the calming effects of scents made for relaxation. Instead, give them aromatherapy pillow mist. We recommend you try out Hillhouse Naturals’ Fragrance Mist, available in Salt & Sea, Cashmere, Fresh Citrus, Fresh Linen, Sea Salt and more. While the gift of relaxation is a wonderful idea, you may feel the spray isn’t enough for Valentine’s Day all on its own. We have a plethora of scented spa items so you can create your own romantic care package! Add in body lotion, a candle, and whatever else you think she would like.

Essential oils

Essential oils are a very common way to enjoy your favorite scents. There are actually more than 90 types of essential oils, each with its own unique smell and potential health benefits. Lavender is used to relieve stress. Chamomile is used to improve mood and relaxation. In order to enjoy these scents in the bedroom, one of the easiest things to do is put a bottle of the oil into a diffuser. This way, your valentine can enjoy the ultimate relaxation with the gentle aroma of a Hillhouse Naturals Diffuser. He or she will enjoy a fresh, fragrant aroma in their bedroom that makes it easy to settle in for the night. This product features a diffuse time of 10 months, which means it lasts longer than other similar products.

Travel pillow

This year, Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday. Are you giving the gift of a little weekend getaway? How romantic! All that is left to do is think of a really clever way to announce your gift. We suggest wrapping up a travel neck pillow and saying “Surprise! Bring your new travel pillow and get in the car. We’re headed out of town!” We offer many options for this gift, including travel neck pillows from top brands like Malouf and Soft-Tex. One of our favorites is the Malouf Travel Neck Gel Dough +Z Gel Pillow. The ergonomic U-shaped design correctly supports the natural curves of a person’s head, neck, and shoulders, providing ideal support to sleep in a relaxed position while sitting up. The liquid Z® Gel lies on top of the pillow for a cool sleeping surface that will capture and dissipate your body heat. The unique Gel Dough® memory foam creates a softer, cooler, doughier feel.

Luxury bathrobe

Your night of sleep begins well before you lie down for the night. It starts when you are going through your nightly routine. Make his or her bedtime routine a little bit more luxurious and a lot more comfortable with the sleep gift of a plush robe! We have nearly a dozen luxury bathrobes to choose from, from Enchante and Sferra. Everyone loves a robe; it is the ultimate luxury in leisure living! As soon as you decide whether they would prefer a Turkish Cotton or Cashmere robe, you can order it through our website.

From a lavender infused pillow to an Egyptian cotton robe to the best travel pillow, City Mattress has all the sleep gifts you could possibly ask for! Our largest selection can be found by shopping online. However, if you prefer to go into one of our stores and shop for a gift there, we have a wide variety of pillows, blankets, and other great sleep gifts in person as well. You may find you love our gift selection so much you get yourself a little something special too!
