If you know a mom, its very likely she isn't getting enough sleep. Whether she's waking up overnight to nurse her toddler back to sleep, or to rub her 1st grader's legs because they hurt, or she just can't seem to fall asleep until hours after her head hits the pillow because her brain just won't shut off! (All my main reasons for not getting enough sleep btw). Your mama-friend could use some serious support in the sleep department. So this Christmas, get her what she really needs... a good night's sleep! I've taking it upon myself to compile this list of better-sleep-must-haves for you so you wont be stuck trying to figure out what to get the moms in your life for Christmas.

Valerian is known for its calming effect. This organic tea is a wonderful tranquil way to wind down at the end of the day.
Growing up my mom used to make me Sleepy Time tea, and I remember the taste well. This tea is so yummy and non GMO. Find many buying options here:
Anti-aging Sleep Mask
This sleep mask is not too tight. Due to it's adjustable strap and silk material, it won't pull on your skin causing wrinkles. In fact, it is infused with copper peptides. Meaning it can actually reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines... making you look younger while you sleep! How awesome is that?!
Himalayan Salt Lamp
Himalayan salt lamps have so many benefits. (We have six of them! Two in our bedroom). Not only do they help to purify the air, they reduce electromagnetic radiation which has been known to interrupt or stall sleep. They also reduce airborne infectious germs, and help ease asthma and allergy symptoms. Throw in the fact that they are a natural mood booster and they may just help give you the best sleep you've ever had!
Sometimes the silence can be too loud... (or your husband's snoring may be too loud. Lol). This is the exact white-noise machine I have in my son's nursery. I benefit from hearing it on the baby monitor as well, and it is rather soothing.

80% of people are magnesium deficient. While there is a long list of magnesium benefits, one of the best benefits is a proper night's sleep. Magnesium eases anxiety, relaxes tense muscles, and also can eliminate headaches and promote relaxation, making it the perfect mineral to guarantee you a restful night's sleep.

Your skin is your largest organ and can absorb what you put on it in 26 seconds. Applying magnesium lotion is an amazing way to supplement your body with therapeutic magnesium.
If you're anything like me, you find it impossible to sleep with ice-cold tootsies!
