Gifts to Help Sleep

1. Deep Sleep Pillow Spray

2. Aku Mat

Wrap up the gift of acupressure treatment

A mat covered in metal spikes might not seem like a great gift for someone who needs a good night’s rest.

However acupressure has been shown to have amazing benefits for sleep. Plus we’ve reviewed the Aku Mat in detail and concluded there’s no better acupressure mat!

If you’re new to acupressure, laying back on the mat triggers the release of endorphins and invokes a deep sense of relaxation that encourages better sleep quality.

Unlike competitor mats that use plastic spikes, the Aku Mat is covered in 2,710 spikes made from copper, silver, zinc, nickel and iron.

You might be worried that you’re inflicting pain on the recipient, and Akuspike’s CEO said it can be painful at first! But you quickly get used to the sensation and the results are more than worth it.

Like the spikes? Aku offer a range of different products covered in their signature metal points.

As they are slightly cupped, triangular and smooth, there are thousands of tiny air pockets between them when arranged in a pillow.

This versatile pillow can even be customized by the recipient of this thoughtful gift, using the extra hulls provided.

It will also ensure the perfect alignment for the neck, shoulders and spine – excellent for posture.

Gone are the days of tolerating lumpy pillows, sweating at night and suffering in silence.
