Better sleep. It’s something we all want – and science has proven that good sleep can make us happier， healthier people. But between work， kids， hours spent in front of screens， life and stress， good sleep can be hard to come bycustom christmas gifts， so what can do we do to make it better？
One of the most important ingredients in good sleep is comfort. Creating a comfortable bed with the right covers and pillows， and a cozy， relaxing environment can go a long way to promote better Zzzz’s.soft throw pillow covers
Rest Your HeadLet’s start with pillows. There’s nothing worse than waking up with a stiff neck because of a pillow that’s not working! The general rule is that pillows should be replaced about once a year – and if you can fold your pillow in half and it stays that way， or you’re waking up stiff and sore， it’s time to replace it. Consider how you sleep for a good pillow match：？ Stomach sleepers do well with a softer pillow， like our Meditation Soft Down Pillow.？ Back sleepers should have a little more support and firmness –； Mediation Firm Down Pillow is a good fit.？ For side sleepers， a medium support pillow like our Mediation Medium Down Pillow works well.
Also keep in mind that pillows， like comforters and duvet inserts， are made with a variety of materials so choose yours wisely. Allergy sufferers (and vegans) should steer clear of down and go with a down alternative， like our Mantra Down-Alternative Pillow， made with easy-care， hypoallergenic poly.
Take Your Temperature
Another key (and sometimes divisive) ingredient in good sleep is temperature. Some of us like to layer on the blankets for a cocoon of warmth while others run hot and sleep better with a lighter layer. Creating the right temperature is easy with the right type of layer – consider our three different duvet inserts， each designed for a different level of warmth：
？ For warm weather， or sleepers who like a light layer， choose our Chrysalis Down Duvet Insert.？ For sleepers who like a toasty layer， try our Savasana Down Duvet Insert.？ And for the frigid temperatures or sleepers who like premium warmth， opt for our Hibernation Down Duvet Insert.
Bring on the NightAnother factor in sleep quality is light! These days most of us spend countless hours in front of light-emitting computer screens， tablets and smart phones. Creating a relaxed atmosphere away from all of that light is essential for good sleep. One way to achieve this is with the right window coverings.

What about you？ What are your favorite tips and tricks for better sleep？
I’ve been slowly but surely putting together a little grocery store for my kids. ?While creating this space for them, I knew I needed TOUGH toys, tough decor and anything paper had to be encased in plastic to make it?indestructible? ?You see, my boys are the type that can destroy anything (cue the photo of the crashed bunk beds and broken hardwood dressers), so to give the store a fighting chance, it had to be tough.
We were just dreaming of making a sign on the office wall the said YES! when we stumbled on a webstore call Happy Tape. It?sells nothing but Japanese masking tape: slightly translucent tape made of washi paper that comes?in beautiful colors and patterns. It made us wonder “Why didn’t anybody think of this before?!!!”
How much do we love Mary McDonald? Let us count the ways. She’s won oodles of awards and accolades, including being named to best-of lists by House Beautiful and Veranda. Her style—a strong classical, décor-arts base updated with contemporary flourishes, fantastical patterns, and “couture chic” details—adapts to seemingly every home style with ease. She’s a great storyteller, as evidenced by her book Mary McDonald: Interiors, The Allure of Style, and her scene-stealing appearances on the TV shows Million Dollar Decorators and Property Envy.?She has a swoon-worthy Instagram account. And she’s vibrant, funny, and down-to-earth—exactly the kind of person we want at a dinner party or hanging out with us on a weeknight while we watch guilty-pleasure Lifetime movies or indulge in fantasies of being a rock star.
