If you or a loved one suffer from excessive snooze syndrome, the holidays are here to help.
For some people, the outside world holds no allure compared to curling up under the covers or napping on the couch. These are the folks who regularly hit the sack by 8 and can somehow sleep until noon if allowed to.
Thankfully, the fact that sleep is their favorite pastime makes them rather easy to shop for during the holidays. Checkout some of our favorite gifts for those who truly savor their sleep.
Sleep Pod from Hug Sleep
A sleep sack is generally used on babies to provide a safer sleep environment than loose bunched sheets in a crib, but Hug Sleep has created one for adults. Sleep Pod is a first-of-its-kind sleep solution designed around the science of Deep Touch Pressure Therapy that can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Applying gentle pressure around your entire body, simulating the feeling of being hugged, helps to reduce stress and give you a better night’s sleep.

The Ooler system can slowly cool you down in the evening as well as gently wake you by slowly warming the bed as you approach the end of your sleep cycle.
Muses uses an EEG-equipped headband and award-winning brain sensing technology to analyze and improve sleep quality with research-grade precision. This is their first sleep-focused product as their previous two were meditation oriented.

Hupnos utilizes your smartphone and a smart sleep mask to reduce snoring through the use of EPAP technology. EPAP, Expiratory Positive Airway Pressure, is a device similar to the more common CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) device used to treat sleep apnea, but EPAP only delivers positive pressure when you are exhaling. The Hupnos smart mask connects to your smart phone while you sleep to analyze your snoring habits and takes gentle steps to fix it by either providing gentle vibrational signals to prompt the user to change sleeping positions or by increasing the exhalation pressure, so you stop snoring.
