Sleep Gifts - A Present That’s Universal and Everyone Will Appreciate
Is there someone on your list who’s hard to shop for? Maybe your husband has every kitchen appliance and gadget in existence. Your girlfriend has all the latest tech gadgets – and you don’t even know what they all do. Gift cards can be generic and impersonal. They’re useful, sure, but you can do better. Instead of settling for a common gift certificate, choose a present that’s universal and that everyone will appreciate – a sleep gift!
We’ve compiled a guide to the top eco-friendly sleep gifts; use this guide to shop for everyone on your list. From kids to co-workers, you’ll find green, fair trade, organic and socially responsible gifts that your friends and family will love to open.
What could be more well-received than a soft, fluffy, environmentally conscious pillow? We’ve chosen the best of the best for our eco friendly sleep guide. Here are our favorites.
1. Luxor Linens
Type of Pillow | Cooling Foam Pillow
Eco Friendly Pillow Benefits | Eco-Friendly, Socially Responsible
Pillow Material | Gel-Infused Memory Foam
Pillow Sizes | 18.5" x 11.5" x 3.5"
Pillow Price | $55
Luxor Linens is one of our favorite resources for finding organic, eco-friendly and natural products. The company’s also known for its quality craftsmanship, with Luxor Linens products being found by some of the biggest names in luxury hotels. The Ritz Carlton and Savoy Hotel are two examples of hotels which prefer the quality of Luxor Linens bedding.
For our Luxor Linens review, we’ve chosen the Fresco Cooling Contour Pillow. This gel-infused memory foam pillow is curved to fit your body, relieving the aches and pains ordinary pillows can cause. Cooling gel keeps your temperature regulated, meaning you’ll stay cool all night – without flipping your pillow! The Fresco Cooling Contour Pillow makes a great gift for anyone on your list. It’s designed for both home and travel, so gift a pair to your jet-setting friends.
2. Live and Sleep
Type of Pillow | Medium Firm Foam Pillow
Eco Friendly Pillow Benefits | Eco-Friendly, Socially Responsible, CertiPUR-US Certified, Give Back
Pillow Material | Memory Foam
Pillow Sizes | Standard
Pillow Price | $60
If you’re not sure what type of pillow your gift recipient prefers, the Live and Sleep pillow offers an excellent happy medium. The medium-firm pillow is designed to contour to the shoulders and neck, meaning a comfy night’s sleep for any position. An open cell technology promotes air flow and keeps every sleeper cool – naturally. A stretch knit cover is soft and breathable, and all materials used in the crafting of the Live and Sleep pillow are safe and non-toxic.
Each Live and Sleep product is created using materials that are CertiPUR-US certified. That means they’ve endured rigorous testing for VOCs, chemicals and are safe for the environment and your health. We’ve chosen, too, to include a Live and Sleep review because they’re a “give back” company. Live and Sleep donates a portion of all proceeds to the National Alliance to End Homelessness.
3. Pacific Coast Feather
Type of Pillow | All-Down Pillow
Eco Friendly Pillow Benefits | HyperClean, 100% Cotton Outer, Natural Materials, Filled in the USA

Pillow Price | $82.49 Standard, $90.74 Queen, $107.24 King
The last of our pillows on our sleep gift guide is the Pacific Coast Feather review. What we love about this company is the care they take to ensure products are hypoallergenic, crafted with the utmost attention to quality and are filled right here in the United States.
The StayLoft pillow from Pacific Coast Feather is filled with 600 fill power HyperClean down. HyperClean is a process used by Pacific Coast Feather to wash goose down, removing dust, allergens and dirt from feathers. What’s left is a clean, hypoallergenic and fluffy feather that’s as soft as a cloud. The craftsmanship of this pillow is second to one, too. The StayLoft Pillow is constructed with internal baffles that help your pillow retain its shape. Choose this pillow for the person on your list who tosses and turns in her sleep.
If you’re looking for an eco friendly sleep gift that’s a little larger than a pillow, why not choose a fair trade, organic or green mattress? Here are our three favorite mattresses that fit that description.

We just adore Avocado Green Mattress. There’s nothing artificial or unsafe about the company’s products; they carry certifications from GREENGUARD, OEKO-TEK and eco-INSTITUT, so you know you’re getting fair trade, chemical free and non-toxic products when you buy from the company.
The natural wool in the Avocado Green Mattress is New Zealand Joma wool that’s naturally antibacterial and moisture-wicking. GOTS certified organic cotton comprises the mattress cover, and the mattress itself is filled with 100% natural and sustainable GOLS Certified latex foam. In other words, the Avocado Green Mattress is as natural a gift as you can give.

Memory foam used in the creation of Live and Sleep Memory Foam Mattresses is CertiPUR-US certified to be safe and toxin-free. The “Luxury” style of the Live and Sleep mattress offers medium-balanced support, meaning it’s supportive of every sleeper, regardless of their favorite position.

The price point of Live and Sleep products means environmentally friendly bedding is available to everyone, regardless of budget.
