Treating your partner to an indulgent bedtime gift could be the most thoughtful Valentine’s day present ever. Whether it’s helping them – and you – to get a good night’s sleep, whether they need to feel a little bit special and cared for, or whether you want to create a bit of romance in the bedroom, it’s an easy and practical choice of gift. We’ve done the hard work for you and suggest our favourite, tested and reviewed, luxury eye masks, silk pillows, sumptuous duvets, good sleep pillow sprays and more to help you make them happy.
One of our favourite products this winter, The Silk beauty pillowcase for hair and skin is fantastic. The properties of silk are well-known for anti-allergy and moisturising qualities. Silk keeps your skin cool as it is naturally temperature regulating and the silkiness means that it doesn’t tug at your locks when you turn over in your sleep. A luxury buy but definitely worth it. It comes in an exquisite chalky colour, feeling classically old-fashioned, just like a 1950s movie star – roll over Marilyn Monroe. Available from The White Company for £65.
Beautifully packaged, eco-friendly, anti-allergy and made with mulberry silk and bamboo, we think this is the best eye mask you can buy. Available in four different colour choices: Eclipse Black, Urban Grey, Vintage Pink and Pure White, you can go his-and-hers in the bedroom and feel good about doing it too!

If you want to create a relaxing mood in the bedroom then this is a good choice. The diffuser pod humidifies the air at the touch of a button, ensuring that your bedroom has a healthy environment for sleep – particularly helpful at this time of year when central-heating dries the air, dehydrating the skin, mouth and nose. Scent to Sleep essential oil blend gives your room a gorgeous calming scent and helps you drift off with luxurious ease. £115 from John Lewis.
We’ve reviewed both the Mulberry Silk pillow and the Mulberry Silk duvet and our testers loved them both. They’re simply the best value, best quality luxurious silk bedding that we’ve found at this very reasonable price. Mulberry Silk is the highest quality silk around and with natural anti-allergy properties as well as temperature regulation and all the beauty benefits, these are very good investments for the man or the woman in your life. Duvet from £150 and Pillow from £55 at John Lewis.
A lovely gift to make the one you love feel indulged and cared for. This gorgeously rich body butter is made with Patchouli essential oils, nourishing organic shea and cocoa butters. Around £23 from Neals Yard.
Our absolute favourite body pillow. If you can’t be there to cuddle your partner, then this is the next best thing, alternatively use it as a reading bolster behind your necks when you’re together. It’s incredibly soft, allergy-free and comes in four different colour choices. Nicely packaged with a posh white ribbon, it’s a gift which keeps on giving.

If you want to make your bed more comfortable without having to splash out on a new mattress, a good quality thick mattress topper is the answer. This extra-cushioned, layered topper is luxury 5* hotel-standard and easy to wash. Available from £94 at The Fine Bedding Company.
Pillow Mist is a thoughtful gift to help make your bed a fresh, yet sensual place to be, as well as aiding sleep with the key ingredient of lavender. Packaging always helps with a gift, and The White Company’s looks luxurious, classy and modern. The White Company for £22.
So, maybe not the most tactful gift, but funny and practical this Anti-Snore pillow from Silentnight could well be the best aphrodisiac for couples! If your partner tends to kill the romance with his (or her) snoring, this could be a good start to a bit more bedroom harmony. Available from Amazon, at only £10 (at time of writing).
