Did you know that about 25 % of all adults in the UK are not entirely happy with their sleep? And about half of them are full out insomniacs who can barely grab a decent night’s rest. So next time you’re out looking for the perfect gift, why not include one or two special presents for someone struggling with sleep?
Trust me when I say, getting something to help you overcome restlessness is the best gift you could give an insomniac, no matter the occasion. So here’s a few of my top gift ideas for insomniacs – because sleepy people deserve a good knockout gift.
5 Gift ideas for Insomniacs
1. Dodow LAC01561
If you’re looking for something that will actively help your loved ones fall asleep naturally, then this is the product for you. It’s surprising how incorporating a little technology to your sleeping routine can really make all the difference. Dodow is an easy to use metronome with a light system that trains insomniacs how to fall asleep naturally without any medicinal aid.
It works by synchronizing your breathing to the pulsating light which slows down your breathing rate, metabolism, and eventually relaxes your body to the land of nod. So if it takes your friend, relative, or spouse about an hour to sleep, the Dodow should have them out in less than 20 minutes. Definitely a nice gift that will help distract anyone off to sleep.

2. Wireless Bluetooth Sleep Eye Mask
As with many cases of insomnia, sensitive or light sleep tends to be a common denominator. All it takes is a little slither of sun through the window, a light bulb or the glow of a phone and you’re up. This particular gift is not only handy for helping your loved ones sleep undisturbed through the night; it’s also great for sneaking in a few daytime naps when your body really needs it.
But this isn’t you average elastic cotton sleep eye mask – it comes equipped with built in, wireless Bluetooth speakers that connect to iPods, MP3 players as well as smart phones. This means true HD fidelity right in your ears for truly undisrupted sleep.
