Gift Guide for the Sleep Deprived

This year give the most precious gift of all: a great night’s sleep. For the new mom, the essential worker, and the friend who is well…just always tired, we’ve got you covered with a curated list of Made by Yokes products that promote sleep wellness.

(Psst. We won’t judge if you pick up a few things for yourself. Who couldn’t use a few more ZZZ’s?)

Sleep Well Silk Eye Mask

The secret to better sleep: less light. As our surroundings grow darker, our bodies naturally produce melatonin, the hormone known as nature’s sleep aid. Make things simple for your loved ones with this light blocking eye sleep mask. They’ll love the lush texture, but they’ll also love that the silk eye mask prevents wrinkling around the eyes.

Dream Catcher Candle

Anyone who tosses and turns at night will appreciate this ‘Dream Catcher’ candle. Made with notes of orange and grapefruit, this bright scent profile eases nerves and calms the entire body. Named after the traditional Ojibwe Dream Catchers (the small woven webs which hang as a protective charm) this wellness candle expels harmful or negative energies in the air. We recommend lighting the candle an hour before bed to clear the air and get ready for sweet dreams.

(Just a reminder: never leave a lit candle unattended. Remind friends and loved ones to extinguish all flames before drifting off…)

Pitta Dosha Candle

Whether your loved ones are practitioners of the Ayurveda lifestyle or not, they’ll appreciate this beautifully crafted candle. Their eyes will treasure the gorgeous brass-plated vessel. Their nose will appreciate scents of lavender, orange, and lemon. It’s this lavender scent—paired with the intimate glow of a flickering flame—which instantly relaxes the body. Slip this candle into a few stockings for instant holiday hero status.

Lavender Aromatherapy Eye Pillow

If you can’t decide between sleeps masks and candles (and we can’t blame you!), get the best of both worlds with this aromatherapy eye pillow. Filled with freshly harvested lavender buds and flax seeds, this pillow helps set the conditions for restorative sleep through both scent and light reduction. As an added bonus, this eye pillow can be used to sooth tension headaches, lessen the symptoms of anxiety, and amplify meditative practice. It’s indulgent and practical making it the perfect gift.

While the benefits of self-care are endless, good sleep might just top the list. So what will you gift this year?
