Give the

Gift of Sleep

To a teacher

Teachers give up sleep and sanity for the sake of others.

We could probably never repay the teachers in our lives for all that they’ve done and all that they do. They’re angels and we don’t deserve them. But what they deserve is to get a little sleep. If you’ve got special teachers in your life, get them a gift that tells them you understand how hard they work. Educating the next generation is no small task!

Take a look at our favorite gifts for teachers.

Take a Deep Breath
Sharper Image Anxiety Relieving Sleep Lamp
$70
We’ll be completely transparent; we were a bit skeptical when we first heard about this, but it won us over! You simply focus on matching your breathing to the rhythm of a gentle blue light emitted by the lamp. This slows down your breathing and takes your mind off whatever is causing your anxiety – ultimately helping you fall asleep faster. What teacher couldn't use that?
Here Comes the Sun
Philips Wake-Up Light: Sunrise Simulation Alarm Clock
$98
Our body’s natural circadian rhythm is wired to help us wake up with sunlight. However, most of us don’t get to experience waking up to the sun, especially teachers. This ingenious alarm clock lamp simulates a rising sun and will give your teacher a gentle and refreshing wakeup call before they have to go save the world.
Burn the Midnight Oil
Organic Aromas Raindrop Nebulizing Diffuser ®
$95
Research shows that inhaling certain essential oils can relax your body and mind and help you enjoy a deeper sleep - essential for teachers who are running a million miles an hour throughout the day. This product diffuses essential oils more efficiently than a number of other diffusers we checked out and has a lovely design to boot!
Sheets That Can't Be Beat
Royal Velvet 600 TC Wrinkle-Free Luxury Sheet Set
$50
When Wirecutter said the best sheets out there were available at J.C. Penney’s and cost less than $100 a set, we were skeptical. As the foundation of any great sleep, we believe in sheets and thought we’d find the best at some high-end boutique where the prices are as big as the promises. But these sheets are no joke. And what a better way to thank a teacher than to buy them something that creates a comfortable sleep environment.
A Crowd Favorite
Snuggle-Pedic Bamboo Shredded Memory Foam Pillow
$60
When we see that 10,000 people have reviewed a product and that more than 75% of them have given it a 5-star review, we have to try it for ourselves. This pillow is made of Eco-Friendly Biogreen® & Certipur-US Certified Foam, which basically makes it feel like you’re sleeping on a pillow made of golden retriever puppies (if it were safe for the puppies). It also comes with a micro-vented cover to help keep you cool at night, which is imperative for a good night’s rest.
Sleep 101
Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams
$19
Honestly, this book was a huge wake-up call. See what we did there? Why We Sleep examines why it’s imperative for your body and mind to get better sleep. And let us say, the arguments are compelling. The book also walks you through what you can do to get deeper, more restorative sleep - tips that a teacher could both use and teach to his or her students. We’re not joking when we say this should be required reading if you’re a human.

If you’re buying a gift for a special person in your life, then your gift should be special too. And what’s more special than helping a teacher you love get better, more peaceful sleep?
