We’ve dozed off with the help of many sleep products over the past 10 years — these are our top choices to gift to your loved ones in need of Zzzs.

It’s no secret that most of us don’t get enough sleep. One in three adults in the U.S. are not getting enough sleep every night, and research shows that good sleep is crucial for mental and physical health, safety, and overall quality of life. Letting our loved ones know that we care for their well-being through a gift is one of the most thoughtful and sentimental things we can do — and what better way to show love than through the gift of sleep? 

Why give the gift of better sleep? 

There are many reasons we don’t sleep — maybe it’s worrying about the world or our personal finances, dealing with a crying baby, suffering from insomnia, or feeling the pressure to finish a work project in the late hours of the night. Regardless of the reason, good sleep — and getting enough of it — is important.

Giving the gift of better sleep to a loved one or even ourselves can help reduce stress and get the mind into a more relaxed state where sleep can come a bit more easily. For those of us who’ve seemed to try everything to sleep better — fear not! Some of the gifts we’ve listed can help you or someone you know, get to the root of why you may not be getting enough rest, or enough quality rest. Sometimes all it takes is a little reminder, some relaxation, and some information to reveal how we can get better sleep, and the gifts we’ve listed do just that.

So whether for a friend, family member, or maybe even a treat for yourself, these gifts are perfect for cozying up and snuggling in for a good night’s rest.

1. Oura Ring

Best For | Techies
Price | Starting at $299

Oura Ring is a built-to-last smart ring that monitors sleep by measuring your body temperature, heart rate, and how long you spend in each stage of sleep. It calculates these measurements into a score (1–100) that will tell you the quality of your sleep each night, and it offers guidance for how to improve your sleeping habits. Plus, it measures your heart rate, body temperature, oxygen levels, and more during the day. It even can tell if you’re getting sick! There are four finish options for the Heritage Ring and six for the Horizon Ring. Both come in sizes 6–13 and you can order a free ring sizing kit to determine your size. Check out our full review of Oura here.

Oura Review | “According to Oura, my chronotype is “Morning Type,” which means I thrive when I wake with the sun and go to bed early. It suggests that I go to bed around 10:30pm and wake around 6:30am. Following this routine has had a profound impact on the quality of my rest, and provides the accountability I need to get in bed on time.” – AmyAnn Cadwell, founder of The Good Trade (Read the full review)
