Our mothers are superheroes. They take on the herculean task of balancing work and taking care of the family without asking for much in return. But even a superhero needs to take a break now and then, and your mother is no exception. With Mother’s Day coming up, what better way to show how much you care than giving her the gift of restorative sleep?
Often the best presents are those that come from the heart. Surprising her with the gift of a good night’s rest will move her heart immeasurably – and she will appreciate your thoughtfulness in caring for her wellbeing. Let us share with you three brilliant Mother’s Day gift ideas you should consider to pamper and spoil your mother with the quality rest she truly deserves.
Many people overlook the pivotal role a cosy set of pyjamas plays in their sleep quality. It is much easier to doze off and fall into a deep sleep without interruptions when they feel comfortable and relaxed. And sleeping with the right pyjamas can help them get settled in for the night and achieve that.
Given Singapore’s warm and humid weather, lightweight cotton pyjamas make the best choice for your mother. The fabric is made from a soft and breathable material that is perfect for sleeping in a warmer climate. They are also durable and stretchy, so the clothing will not tear easily after a few washes. Throw in a luxurious sleep mask too so she can block out any light (and the world) and drift off.
A good pillow can have a transformative effect on a person’s sleep. Depending on our natural sleeping position, using the wrong pillow can affect our spinal alignment. We may experience persistent neck and back pains throughout the day if our spinal alignment during sleep is poor. Therefore, it is essential to determine your mother’s natural sleeping position and find the right pillow that matches her sleeping style.
Back sleepers require a happy medium in their pillows to maintain a healthy sleeping posture. For mothers that love to sleep on their backs, you should consider getting a pillow with medium loft and firmness. A medium loft alleviates pressure in the neck and shoulder by offering a cushion between your mother’s head and her mattress without craning her head upwards, which can lead to neck pains. It is also necessary to have a decent firmness to the pillow to support her head and align it with her spine.
If your mother is a side sleeper, a pillow with a high loft and firm support will be ideal for maintaining her posture. This pillow’s taller profile will help prop her head up and ensure it aligns with her spine. It also puts minimal pressure on the shoulders as they no longer have to sustain the weight of her body. A firmer pillow will also prevent her head from lowering during her sleep, leading to a stiff neck the following morning.
Stomach sleepers require a pillow with a low loft and soft support to support their sleeping style. If your mother is a stomach sleeper, any pillow with a medium loft and above can throw her whole posture out of whack. The gentle support helps to maintain a buffer between her and the mattress while ensuring her head is not too propped up so her neck will align with her spine.
Have you noticed your mother feeling more tired lately as she sleeps less at night and takes more frequent naps during the day? As we age, our body’s sleeping pattern begins to change. However, this does not lessen the amount of sleep we require daily, which is why your mother may be compelled to take afternoon naps.
The change in her sleeping schedule could be due to various factors, but the primary reasons may be her mattress. If your mother’s bed has remained unchanged over the years, you may want to consider getting a new premium mattress to replace her current one. A high-end mattress provides excellent support and comfort over a longer period of time.
At Four Star, our DETENSE | ArcticSilk® Advanze Aire Flex™ mattress is designed with comfort in mind. Integrated with innovative new technology, the ArcticSilk® Advanze Aire Flex™ lowers the overall mattress temperature and increases airflow for a cooler and more comfortable sleeping surface. Additionally, the cooling gel-infused memory foam mattress reduces motion transfer, which helps to provide deeper, uninterrupted sleep. You can consider it as a worthy investment for your mother so she can get the rest she deserves every night.
You can also pair our mattress with a customised storage bed frame, made with German Hydraulic lift system to provide more storage space for your mother to keep her beloved possessions. You are essentially filling two needs with one deed with this thoughtful present.
Nothing compares to a mother’s love and care, so it’s even more important for you to reciprocate the affection you receive and provide her with the same comfort and support she gave you all these years ago. This Mother’s Day, get your mother the perfect gift she deserves – a good night’s sleep.
