Over the last five, maybe 10 years, ‘experience’ gifts have become the end-all-be-all for wedding registries. We get it, too, because time spent together - doing amazing things like cooking with a world class chef, going to a kick ass concert or equally-enlivening sporting event, crossing something crazy (skydiving, perhaps) off your bucket list - can definitely outrank a Dutch oven or the like. But there’s an experience that a lot of people forget about when they’re putting their registry together, and it’s not some ‘only happens once,’ fleeting kind of event or excursion-type phenomenon. It’s sleep: What you do for 7-8 hours every night to recharge and reup for the next day. And when you’re embarking on something like marriage, sleep becomes a pseudo shared experience. So, we’ve thought of the best product/experience item to add to every wedding registry - next-level pillows to ensure sound sleep, restful REM, and a happy waking experience every morning. Thanks, Lifewit for providing the inspiration…
Science and studies say that nearly one-third of our lives is spent in sleep
So, while we’re slumbering, we might as well do it comfortably, with our partners. Teamwork makes the dream work, arewerite?!
Here are a few things that can improve your nights’ sleep:
- An amazing, roomy mattress
- A serious sound machine
- Naturally-relaxing aromatics (essential oils like lavender, chamomile, rose)
- Black out curtains or a silk sleep mask
- High-performance pillows
A pair of pillows is the new perfect couple’s present
Sure, matching luggage, comfy color-coordinating robes, and designated drinkware (if you and your partner go your separate ways at the bar cart) are fun and historically-no-brainer newlywed gift ideas, but if you want to give your guests #somethingnew to consider, pillows are an on-point pick.
These are some of our favorites, from Lifewit.
Lifewit ‘Sink-in’ Bed Pillows
The Super-thin 1.5D micro silicon polyester fibers ensure a 'sink- in' soft feeling. It’s that hotel-style softness you’ve felt on some of the best trips of your life (your honeymoon, no doubt!).
More Elasticity, High Rebound Rate
Silicone-infused polyester fiber reduces fiber clumping and ensures more elasticity. In other words, their bounce-back game is 👌.
Tested with multiple head shapes, sizes, and weights, Lifewit promises the right amount of fill required to provide a perfectly-balanced head resting level without sacrificing softness and comfort.
OEKO Tex Certified Guarantee & Machine Washable
The 160T 100% cotton cover features a breathable percale weave, certified by OEKO-TEX (one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and exceptional product safety). It’s free of allergens and chemicals, dust-proof, mildew-proof, and won’t harbor any unpleasant odors. Plus, it’s machine-safe and won’t deform easily after repeated washes.
Lifewit Shredded Memory Foam Pillows
High Customization & Moldability
Free to adjust loft (i.e. height) and mold shape with extra memory foam filling bag. There’s no ‘one size fits all’ expectation here, it’s all personalized to give you and your partner your best pillow (slash sleep) ever.
Sleep With No Pressure
Striped aerogel memory foam and microfiber guarantee excellent support and cooling sleep. Hot sleepers, this one’s for you!
Premium Quality Materials
Made of freshly-produced memory foam with no allergen or chemical substances, certified by OEKO & CertiPUR-US. Essentially, your happiness AND health are prioritized, first and foremost.
And the prices are just dreamy
