10 of the Best: Sleep-Themed Gifts 2021By Alicia Grimshaw
We realise this gift guide is pretty niche, but let’s be honest… we all love a good night’s sleep. From calming candles to luxe bedwear, here’s the best gifts for those in need of getting forty winks.
The Lowdown: Levitex is revolutionising the domestic sleep market with its range of pillows – helping those get a good night’s sleep. Focusing specifically on recovery and the importance of sleep posture, the pillows are a godsend for people who suffer from chronic neck and back pain. In short: many sleep on mattresses and pillows that are too firm or too soft, and as a result, their body will try and move to accommodate the pressure as it builds up. The less effort the body needs to support its night-time posture, the more time it will have to completely switch off.
Perfect For: People that need help with their posture.
