Sleep Tight: Valentine's Day Gifts for Bedtime
At New Jammies, we believe Valentine’s Day is always a great way to show loved ones how much they mean to you. Gift-giving can range from homemade treasures made from the heart to a pair of warm New Jammies in red or pink to celebrate one of the most beloved holidays of the year.

Just use the code HEART2015 when ordering online as we spread the love with $10 off through Feb. 21.
Tuck kids into bed this Valentine’s with homemade stuffed animals made from their drawings, thanks to help from craft queen Martha Stewart. Her easy-to-make instructions include these basic materials found at home: A child’s cut-out drawings, fabric, a pencil, accessories (for eyes, nose, mouth, etc.), batting, and a sewing kit. Maybe even make the stuffed animals with older kids as a fun way to show how much you care while having fun with arts and crafts. Easy-to-follow instructions are found here.
Instead of showering kids with sugar and candy this Valentine’s Day, create goody bags of treats filled with coloring books, crayons, stickers, games, bubbles, heart-shaped toys and trinkets, and more. Dollar stores can be a source of such small treasures that kids can enjoy well past Valentine’s Day.
Happy parents make for happy kids, so gifts for Mom and Dad are important to exchange on this lover’s holiday. Especially when the gifts help induce much-needed rest, relaxation and improved sleep habits.
Pamper Mom with cozy organic pajamas of their own. We love Rodale’s whimsical two-piece pajama set called Only Hearts. These pajamas are comfortable and lightweight with relaxed-waist pants and a roomy button-up top made from 100% organic supima cotton.
For a relaxing homemade gift for her that’s easy to create and a treat to give, try Herbalism Roots’ DIY Lavender Pillow Mist Spray. According to the therapeutic division of Denver Integrative Massage School, studies show the scent of lavender can help cure insomnia, anxiety, and overall restlessness that hinder sleep patterns. Their home recipe for pillow mist can be found on the shelves that contain lavender oil and promote a sound, deep sleep. Find the recipe here.
Dads can put their feet up and relax with Toad&Co.’s M’s Shuteye Pants. These yarn-dyed, draw-string pajama pants are made from mid-weight heathered organic cotton flannel. The man in your life will love these for their distinctive character and buttery softness as he heads to bed or the recliner.
