If you know someone who’s pregnant and you want to get them a gift, you might consider some sleep-friendly items. As you can imagine, sleep is greatly affected during pregnancy, with fluctuating hormones and all the physical changes going on within the body. Some people are subject to exhaustion during the day or insomnia at night, so making the sleep experience as comfortable as possible is key.
If you’re looking for ideas, these are the best gifts to give an expectant friend or family member. Some are products I experimented with during my pregnancy that helped me either relax before bed or made sleep a more enjoyable experience (like a pregnancy pillow and a sound machine). Others are handpicked by our trusted sleep experts, who know a thing or two about getting better sleep. The great thing about these items is that you don’t necessarily have to be pregnant to use them. In fact, these products can be enjoyed by nonpregnant and even postpartum people too.
