Treat Your Dad to A Good Sleep This Father’s Day

From sleep deprived nights after you were born, taking care of you when you were sick, checking for scary monsters under the bed, picking you up from parties when you couldn’t get a real taxi, educating you on the best bands from the 1970s into the early hours of the morning, staying up until he hears your keys slotting into the door at dawn, not relaxing if you’re out on a date … the list goes on. Your dad’s been through it all. Whatever your age, you probably owe your dad some hours of precious sleep. While beer and socks are usually the go-to choices for Father’s Day gifts, the perfect gift to give your dad on Father’s Day is a good sleep!

Gift Ideas to Help Your Dad Sleep Well on Father’s Day

New Bedding

Summer is usually the busiest season, with people being able to go out in the evenings again. However, did you know that it’s also the most challenging season to get a good sleep? Hot nights mean people are tossing and turning, early sunrises are waking people up before their alarms, and brighter evenings are keeping people alert when they should be settling down for sleep. Make sure your dad sleeps soundly by gifting them with new bedding that’ll help them sleep peacefully through the hot nights. Check that their duvet isn’t too heavy – they should be using a low tog duvet during the summer. Have a look at our 4.5 tog duvets here.

Also, look for bedlinen with a thread count between 200 and 400 – anything higher can trap body heat. This won’t help them sleep at all – it’ll actually make your dad more uncomfortable and he won’t get a restful snooze. Choose natural fabrics like cotton, linen, and bamboo, as these materials can wick away perspiration while your dad sleeps. You can browse our bedlinen here.

You could also consider giving your dad a cooling product that’ll make sure he sleeps soundly no matter how warm the room gets. The Viscofresh Cooling Pillow from Velfont will keep the sleeper at just the right temperature with its thermo-regulating fabric, while the SlumberCool Climate Control Mattress Protector will let your dad enjoy a breathable, comfortable, and healthy sleep.

A Bedtime Fan

A fan for your dad’s bedroom will make a great gift idea if you want to help him get a good sleep. It will help to cool the room – if the room is too warm, your dad could have a restless night of poor sleep. Plus, the white noise that fans make can be soothing and help drown out outside noises that could wake your mum up, like traffic or birds. The DCH6031 Ceramic Cool Air Heater from DeLonghi features a cool blow setting that’s perfect for sleeping through those warm summer nights.
