Ah, it’s that time again. Parties, presents and quality time with our loved ones. The holidays are fun, but there’s so much going on that many of us miss out on the most important thing of all: sleep—and nobody’s at their best without it.

Whether you’re a proactive gift-giver (go you!) or looking for last-minute holiday gift ideas (it happens to the best of us), our 2023 holiday gift guide will make it easy to make the most of this time with family and friends by giving them the gift of better zzz’s.

How to pick a great holiday gift

There are a few major points to consider when you’re shopping for holiday gifts. Everyone is unique, which can make it hard to gift if you’re buying for a lot of people. Our advice? The best gifts include something useful but also enjoyable—we’ll get to that later.

How to avoid giving an unwanted Christmas gift

It’s every shopper’s worst nightmare: being the one who gives the “unwanted” Christmas gift. The best way to make sure you’re not that person is to avoid things that are too specific to an individual, like perfume or clothing—especially if you don’t know the person too well.

Why giving the gift of sleep is the best gift you can give

Despite all the things that make us different, every person has one thing in common: the need for great sleep. During the hustle and bustle of the holidays—especially if you’re hosting guests—getting major zzz’s will make doing the other “holiday things” that much easier.
