Some throw blankets are designed with functionality in mind but may not earn high marks in the style department. The Brooklinen Baby Alpaca Throw Blanket stands apart from other throw blankets with its stylish design. The blanket excels at insulation but is also attractive enough to dress up a sofa or bed and elevate your room decor.

The blanket is made with 100% baby alpaca wool, which feels exceptionally soft and fuzzy against the skin. It is excellent for staying warm in the winter but also thin enough to use on cool summer nights without overheating. The two-toned plaid pattern is available in a gray or tan color, both of which are versatile enough to complement most color schemes. The blanket is dry clean only.

Shoppers may return the blanket within 365 nights, which makes it an excellent risk-free gift option. It also comes with a 1-year warranty beyond the return window.

Birch is known for producing high-quality mattresses and bedding composed of certified organic materials, which makes the Birch Organic Sheets an ideal gift for moms who care about responsibly sourced bedding. The sheets are also a nice treat for anyone who loves to luxuriate in cool sheets after a long day.

The sheets are made of 100% cotton with a 320 thread count. The cotton has certification from the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) to ensure that it meets strict standards for organic sourcing. A sateen weave gives the sheets a smooth, silky feel, allowing them to drape closely to the body. The smooth feel produces little friction against the skin, so the sheets are a good fit for sleepers with sensitive skin. Cotton is a naturally breathable fabric, so sleepers prone to overheating should also find these sheets comfortable.

The sheets are available in five sizes and five different colors – white, natural, light blue, sand, and beige. Each set includes one flat sheet and one fitted sheet, which has a pocket depth of 15 inches to accommodate most mattresses on the market. The twin/twin XL set includes one pillowcase, while the other sizes come with two pillowcases. You may machine wash the sheets in cold water on a gentle cycle and tumble dry on a low setting.

Birch allows customers to try out the sheets for 100 nights. Sheets returned within this timeframe are eligible for full refunds. The sheets also come with a 1-year warranty. Shipping is free to all 50 states.

The Boll & Branch Down Pillow has a plush, luxurious feel that contours closely to your head without compromising on support. Moms who enjoy snuggling with moldable pillows will find this model comfortable and cozy.

Down pillows are typically associated with exceptional softness, but the Boll & Branch Down Pillow is available in three density options that make it suitable for those who enjoy the softness of down but also require more support for the head and neck. The soft density pillow contains the least fill, making it the plushest option. The medium density pillow contains more fill and added support, while the firm density contains the most fill and support of all three options. A three-chambered design helps maintain the shape and structural integrity of the pillow over time.

The pillow is encased in a 100% cotton cover with certification from the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), which ensures the cotton is organically sourced. The cotton has a dense weave that prevents feathers from poking through. Shoppers may pick from a standard or king size.

Boll & Branch offers free shipping to addresses in the contiguous U.S. Customers may return the pillow within 30 days for a full refund.

The SleepPhones HeadPhones cater to moms who like to fall asleep while listening to music, white noise, meditations, and other audio sleep aids. The headband design is snug and comfortable, which helps ensure the headphones will stay on your head as you drift off to sleep.

The headphones are available in a wireless option that connects to your audio device via Bluetooth. The wireless design helps avoid tangled cords and accidental cord yanking, which can cause disruptions as you fall asleep. The battery lasts around 24 hours on a full charge, which is ample time to lull you to sleep and help you stay asleep.

The headband comes in three sizes and two fabric options. The fleece option feels soft and fuzzy, which can be especially beneficial during colder months. The “Breeze” fabric option is designed with coolness in mind. This fabric is breathable and wicks moisture, making it well-suited to hot sleepers or people who plan to use the headband during exercise. The fleece band comes in three colors – gray, lavender, and black. The Breeze band is available in four colors – gray, orchid, black, and navy. Both fabrics are machine washable after you’ve removed the speaker components.

SleepPhones offers free shipping on orders over $25. The HeadPhones come with a 1-year warranty. Products purchased directly from SleepPhones include a 30-day trial, during which you may return the product for a full refund. Return shipping costs are non-refundable.

Silk & Snow Knit Weighted Blanket

Most weighted blankets are designed with plastic or glass beads stitched into a fabric cover, but the Silk & Snow Weighted Blanket stands apart from conventional weighted blankets with a knitted design that looks attractive and retains less heat than competing models.

The blanket is composed of 100% cotton in a chunky knit weave. It’s available in three weight options for adults – 15, 20, and 25 pounds – as well as an 8-pound option for children. Since the rule of thumb with weighted blankets is to pick a weight approximately 10% of your body weight, these three options should be suitable for most body types. Shoppers may pick from an array of muted and warm color tones.

The open-knit design makes this blanket more breathable than traditional weighted blankets. This enhanced cooling property allows sleepers to experience the benefits of added weight without overheating. The knitted design also ensures even weight distribution throughout the blanket, compared to weighted blankets filled with pellets that can gather or clump.

The Silk & Snow Weighted Blanket may be machine washed, but check your machine to make sure it is able to accommodate heavy, bulky items. Wash alone in cool water on a delicate setting, then dry flat or machine dry on low for several cycles.
