Friday, March 18, is World Sleep Day. This annual event, held the Friday before the Spring Vernal Equinox, was established by two neurologists and is hosted by US non-profit, The World Sleep Society (WSS), to build awareness that sleep is critical for our health and well-being. According to the WSS, a good night’s sleep can help with everything from improving awareness and attention span, to lowering rates of obesity and high blood pressure. This all sounds very serious, but it’s a topic people are very passionate about – whether you sleep well or poorly, everyone has a point of view about what helps them sleep and many of those ideas make terrific gifts.
At To & From, we have curated a great selection of gifts to encourage relaxation and sound sleep – – for every day, not just for World Sleep Day! Our selection includes the retro-modern Skagg electric kettle – perfect for brewing the Golden Slumbers tea, and the herb and flower – infused body oil from Campo Modern Aromatherapy that can be applied before putting on the amazingly soft cotton waffle bathrobe from Hawkins New York. These gifts, among many others, are great for both men and women, and are perfect for fostering a zen ambiance, even when it’s time for bed.
