Some men think that chocolates or flowers are the way to a woman’s heart, but I have to disagree. Flowers die and chocolate makes me fat.
Women live hectic lives. We’re raising kids, going to work, and keeping it together at home. At the end of the day, we’re just stressed out and exhausted.
No, if you want to get on a woman’s good side, you need to give her a gift that can, A, help her feel zen and relaxed, or, B, help her sleep like a goddess.
But just to let you in on a little secret, if you can find a gift that can do both you’re golden. The only way you can top that is to sweep her up in your arms, lay her down in the bed and whisper in her ear, “sleep as long as you want, I’ll clean the house and take care of the kids.”
Now, I can’t do housekeeping or babysitting, but I can give you the inside scoop on the dreamiest, most relaxing sleep gifts for her. Here’s my list of the best sleep gift ideas that any woman will love for Mother’s Day, Christmas, birthday or anytime!
