A popular gift for people who love sleep in the last couple of years is a weighted blanket. They are said to help against stress and anxiety and apparently provide a better sleep quality.

This one comes in a bunch of different colors and patterns, so you’re sure to find one that will fit in with their home decor.
15. A Kindle Paperwhite Ereader
A great activity to help you fall asleep is reading a good book. However, there can be some problems with that. For example, if you tend to fall asleep while reading, the chances are high that the light is still on. And when you share a bedroom with someone else, they probably don’t even want any light to be on, to begin with. An e-reader is a solution for both problems. You can fall asleep with it and it will shut itself off after a while. You can also use the built-in back light that allows you to read in the dark. All in all, the perfect solution for people who read before bedtime.
