10 Gifts For Loved Ones Who Need Better Sleep
The Good Trade editors endorse products we’ve personally researched, tested, and genuinely love. Learn more about our methodology and business model here.
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. 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 into the late hours of the night. Regardless of the reason, good sleep — and getting enough of it — is important. 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.
