Sleep is a tricky game. We all have our own preferences and procedures we’ve fallen into trying to optimize our sleep routines. A good night's sleep is essential for overall health and well-being. It helps improve memory, concentration, and productivity. It also boosts the immune system, reduces stress, and promotes a healthy weight. Getting enough quality sleep is crucial for maintaining optimal physical and mental health.
Whether you’re a sleep enthusiast or someone searching for a few extra minutes wherever they can get, we’ve compiled a list of sleep accessories that can go a long way to make sleep a better, more restful experience.

One of the biggest disruptors when it comes to sleep is noise. Whether it be noise caused by pets, family, or the street outside; it can affect anyone’s sleep. The quieter it is in your room, the more your ears will adjust to that quiet and in turn, the more sensitive your ears will be to any noise in the night. That is why sleep machines have been rising in popularity. The concept of white noise is where you use a static, consistent sound to lull you into a relaxed state. The sound machine will drown out the sounds of anything else in the room. By fighting noise with noise, you may find sounder sleep.
Life is messy. Your mattress is an investment. The best purchase you can make to protect that investment is a mattress protector. Give people the peace of mind they need to sleep soundly without worrying about their mattress. Dinner in bed? No worries. Netflix and chill? Nothing our mattress protectors can’t handle. Aside from protecting your mattress from any mess, a mattress protector can also come in handy for fighting the heat at night.
At Bear, our GlacioTex Mattress Protector will protect your mattress from any spill, stain, or mess all while keeping you cool with its specially crafted cooling cover.
Sleep masks are a very underrated tool for deep sleep. Research has shown that light has a big impact on our circadian rhythms. The idea of a sleep mask is simple; block as much light from reaching your eyes as possible. This enhanced darkness keeps your brain from being distracted by outside elements that keep you awake longer. Sleep masks help promote deeper sleep and deeper sleep has an almost endless list of benefits including: concentration, irritability, and short term memory.
There are a few different types of sleep masks depending on your own preferences. Some come with adjustable straps, some are built to sit further from your eyes as some people don’t like the increased pressure. Some masks have cooling properties built in so you can throw your mask in the fridge and use it to help cool you down at night or use it to help fight a headache.
When it comes to sleep, there are so many different methods you can use to find what works for you. Trying a combination of the above products may help you find more restful sleep, but every sleeper is different. What works for one side sleeper may not work for another. People who sleep on their backs may have a preference for a certain kind of eye mask. The best way to figure out what sleep routine works best for you is to experiment with different products and analyze your results from there.
Choosing the right gift to promote sleep can have a significant impact on someone's sleep quality and overall well-being. Whether it's a weighted blanket, white noise machine, aromatherapy diffuser, sleep tracker, or blackout curtains, these gifts can create a relaxing sleep environment and encourage healthy sleep habits. Give the gift of better sleep and help your loved ones enjoy the numerous benefits that come with it.
