Research shows that men, on average, get less sleep and a lower quality of sleep than women.  However, they are less likely to report it or seek help with sleep problems.

Good quality sleep is vital for maintaining physical and mental health in men, women and children.  So, say ‘thanks Dad’ by giving him a gift that will improve his sleep and his life.

We have put together a list of five great gift ideas for a variety of Dad’s and budgets.  When shopping online make sure you have enough time for your order to arrive.  Click here for more tips on shopping online for sleep products.


1. Earthing Mat

Earthing products are gaining popularity quickly for their myriad of health benefits.  Earthing mats are a great gift idea because they are versatile and can be used anywhere.  Earthing mats help to ground the user and reduce the effects of electronic devices on our bodies.  They help improve general health and sleep health and can also help people who suffer from constant pain.  These are fantastic in the home office especially if Dad works from home a bit.  An earthing mat should cost you around $74.

We recommend these three:  Better Earthing Earthing Mat,  Earthing Oz Universal Mat, Barefoot Healing Universal Earthing Mat.

2. Magnesium Oil

Magnesium is a natural mineral that is essential for the human body.  Some estimates claim that as many as 60%-80% of the population are magnesium deficient.  Magnesium is great for the fit Dad as it helps the muscles recuperate after exercise.  It also helps many people to get a good night’s sleep when applied topically at bed time.  Magnesium oil products range in price.

Our favourites are:  The Base Collective Magnesium Oil Spray, Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil, and Amazing Oils Magnesium Gel.

3. Blue Light Blockers

Blue light blocking glasses may look a little strange at first but the benefits are sure to win you over.  The blue light emitted from the screens we use all day and particularly at night suppress melatonin levels which can have a detrimental effect on our sleep and overall health.
