Newborn & Baby 2023 Sleep Gift Guide
Newborn Gift Ideas
Newborns need a lot of milk, burp clothes, diapers, love, snuggles and sleep! Aside from that, they don’t need much else. Parents of newborns have a few gifts that can make sleep much easier…
Until babies begins rolling, they should sleep snuggly in a swaddle. If not, baby’s startle (Moro) reflex, can cause them to wake themselves up if their arms are completely free during sleep periods. Swaddles also keep newborns cozy, warm and feeling safe, like they felt in the womb.
Newborn Sleep Consultation Gift Certificate
For expectant parents or newborn parents with babies three months and under, our Newborn Sleep Consultation will help set your loved ones up for sleep success from the start. This is the gift that keeps on giving! Purchase a gift card here.
There are so many sound machines out there, but our favorites are from Yogasleep!

Once a baby is 12 months and older, a lovey is a wonderful comfort object that can be added to the crib. Imagine if you are the person who gifted your favorite little one with the most beloved object of their childhood?
- Cuddle + Kind loveys are not only adorable, but they are fair trade, using women artisans with equitable, fair trade employment. And for every doll purchased, 10 meals are provided to children in need. Win win.

Know of a toddler (2+) who is waking at an ungodly hour or through the night? An ok to wake toddler clock serves as a nightlight and also a visual cue to let little ones to know when it is time to start the day.

Mom & Women 2023 Sleep Gift Guide
If you are looking for gifts for the women in your life or to add to your own wish list, these are some of my favorites to help you and your loved ones to get a good night’s slumber!
Pajamas & Bathrobes
Many baby’s pajamas are made from soft pima cotton and these amazing Jijamas for adults are too!
I love the Barefoot Dreams Towel Terry Robes – they are so soft and are great post-shower for quick drying or to hang out in.
An equal luscious robe at a more affordable price, is this one is one of Oprah’s fav products for 2023.
Being a woman comes with it’s challenges and one of those is our monthly cycle, which often results in stained sheets. Surely the THINX Sleep Shorts will help to protect sheets during that time of the month. The Fatty Sunday’s chocolate-covered pretzels have nothing to do with sleep and it isn’t a great bedtime snack (chocolate = caffeine), but pretzels and chocolate? The perfect PMS food!
If you and your partner are constantly fighting over the covers, the Couples Split bedding may help solve that for good!
The Coop Home Goods pillow is clean, chemical-free free and customizable to give you the perfect spinal alignment and an amazing night’s slumber. This pillow is ideal for back, stomach and side sleepers!
Silk Pillowcases & Eye Masks
Silk pillow cases are a must to keep the moisture in your skin and to prevent crazy bed head! I gave these Blissy silk pillowcases for birthdays this year to all my gal pals and they were a huge hit! J JIMOO 100% Mulberry Silk Pillowcase is another one of my favorite silk pillowcases!
The Mavogel Cotton Sleep Mask blocks out all light!
If you are looking for a silk version, 100% Mulberry Silk Sleep Mask works amazingly at creating a dark environment and it’s nice and gentle on the eye area.
My Mom struggles with sleep. (how ironic – she won’t listen to me!) I got her this weighted blanket and it has helped. They are like swaddles for adults! A weighted blanket can help with sleep by:
- Providing comfort and security
- Easing stress and soothing anxiety
- Improving sleep quality
- Calming the nervous system
**If you are considering a weighted blanket for your child, check with your pediatrician and closely look at the weight ranges for safety. NOTHING weighted should ever be used with babies under 12 months of age as it can increase the likelihood of SIDS.**
Sleeping with white noise helps with better sleep, especially for light sleepers and children!
- We are huge fans of the Marpac Dohm Classic white noise machine in our house and recommend them to all of our clients!
- Hatch Restore Sound Machine and Sunrise Alarm helps you create a personalized sleep-wake routine to help you fall asleep, stay asleep & wake up refreshed. This is on my wish list!
Bedtime Routine / Self-Care For Moms
Here are some of my bedtime routine favorites that would make a fun, relaxing gift basket:
- Deep Steep bubble bath
- Lavender Dead Sea Soak bath salts
- Calm The F*ck Down Body Oil
- LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask – I put this on before bed every night and my lips are super soft in the morning.
- Vaseline Healthy Hands Stronger Nails Cream – this hand cream is inexpensive, but it has strengthened my nails amazingly.
Blue Light Blockers
Have a night owl worker or a phone junky in your life? They may not know that blue light emitted from our devices can make it difficult to fall asleep and decrease the restorative value of sleep. Ideally, devices are turned off 60 minutes before bed, but if you have to work late or can’t peel yourself away from the TV or your phone blue light blockers are a necessity.
Blue Light Blocking Light Bulbs
The right lightbulb in your bedside lamp supports your body’s natural production of melatonin, our sleepy hormone. Combined with a bedtime routine, the Sleep Enhancing Blue Light Blocking lightbulbs can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. We use these in my twins’ rooms and my bedroom.
Meditation Sleep Gifts
Trouble shutting your brain down at bed? Or do you wake in the night and your busy brain makes it difficult to return to sleep? Using a sleep meditation can help you get out of your head and calm your body, making it easier to fall asleep and return to sleep if you wake in the night.
- The Zenimal Screen Free Meditation Device that we love for kids also has an adult version! Use discount code: BELLALUNAFAMILY for 5% off.
- Headspace Meditation App Subscription offers printable gift certificates for a 3 month or annual subscription for their premium content. I would love this as a stocking stuffer!
Sleep, Behavior & Potty Training Help
Give the gift of sleep and peace to your loved one with a gift card for our services!
Not Sleep Gifts, But Still Amazing…
The Ember Travel Mug is portable and keeps coffee warm for you
Date Night In Boxes
Parenthood, especially with young children, can be challenging and sometimes our relationship can suffer. (been there) If you are looking to reconnect with your partner, without needing to leave the house, the Date Night in Boxes are an amazing gift!
Dad or Man 2023 Sleep Gift Guide
If your partner sleeps in pajamas, the ones from Tommy John are so soft and breathable, plus he’ll look good in them vs. ratty sweatpants!
Dads tend to run hot so if your hubby or Dad falls into this category, consider the Coop Home Goods Eden Bed Pillow. It’s cooling and adjustable based on your guy’s preferences. Plus, it can reduce snoring, pain and tossing/turning. Win win!
Eye Pillow Mask
Blackout isn’t just for our kids! Parents benefit from sleeping in darkness too! The Ostrichpillow Sleep Mask combines an ideal weight with blackout conditions and six layers of comfort that put zero pressure on the eyes.
Shower & Skincare
My husband LOVES Dr. Squatch’s soap, shampoo, conditioner and toothpaste. So when he showers with these before bed (another good part of a routine), I like that he smells manly, but good!
If you just did a double-take when you saw skincare, hear me out! Many men are starting to see the importance of taking care of their skin, even though when they age they get all silver fox! (unfair) PLUS, having a skincare routine is a wonderful addition to a bedtime routine, which helps to improve sleep quality. If this is your partner/spouse, the Viking Revolution Men’s Skincare (how manly!) is highly rated.
Reading / Listening Material
Another key part of the bedtime routine is staying off our phones for at least 30 minutes before lights out and reading/listening to a book is a solid way to get the body ready for slumber! If your husband is sports-obsessed like mine, check out The League: How Five Rivals Created the NFL and Launched a Sports Empire. (this would certainly put me to sleep!)
If your favorite guy prefers to listen vs. read, an Audible membership is a great gift that keeps on giving all year long!
Now this is a splurge, but for the tech-obsessed Dad who cares about his health, the Oura Ring is an amazing gift. It helps to track sleep, activity and recovery, plus it gives interesting insight to improve sleep quality and overall health.
We hope our 2023 Sleep Gift Guide For The Entire Family makes your shopping experience dreamy this year! If nothing fits for your loved one, our gift certificates always make an amazing gift for the parents in your life.
