I don’t know why I did a Holiday Gift Guide For A Sleep Deprived New Mom other than all the items that were drawing my attention where sleep-themed, and then I thought about how perfect they would be for a brand new mom. Not that sleep deprivation at that stage has a solution, but the cozy comforts and self-care items are essential I think. Warning though, if someone had given me a book titled ‘why we sleep’ at the newborn stage I probably would have thrown it at them and collapsed into a puddle of tears. For the regular old insomniac in your life, or night owl like me that likes to stay up late watching Netflix the book is perfect. By the way, I’m so freckin excited that The Queen season 2 starts tomorrow!!!
On my own personal wish list are the Santa pyjamas, and the Haflinger slippers. The slippers are on my list after seeing them at Nordstrom a few weeks ago. I love that they are felted wool and not like Ugg Slippers fur where the fur gets all matted and flat and sweaty if you don’t wear socks with them. I think these (although not soft to the touch) will be super cozy and luxurious on my bare feet. I hate that I have to wear socks with my ugg slippers to keep them semi-nice, but when I do wear socks with them I love my ugg slippers. I also almost hate to admit it but over the past few months, I’ve developed an obsession with Diptyque. Baise, Figuier and Tubereuse are my favorites!
