The holidays are a tricky time to shop. Everyone is out shopping for the perfect gifts for their loved ones. At times you may run out of ideas. Just remember, when shopping for a gift that everyone loves, you can never go wrong with warm and cozy bedding, a beautiful blanket, a lovely new bath set or a warm and comfy bathrobe. They are practical and beautiful gifts that your loved one will appreciate every time they use them.

Why luxury linen?

How to Choose a Luxury Linen Gift

There are many choices in quality linens. Make your gift giving impactful and special by considering the following before you make your purchase:

Give Quality

Consider the quality of the bedding when making a purchase. The quality of a gift gets noticed and says you were thoughtful and careful in your selection. Quality materials and manufacturing are important, as they give the item its durability, beautiful look and luxurious, comfortable feel.  Your gift of luxury linens doesn’t have to be expensive. There are a lot of beautiful selections available, and often at a discount. And, quality bedding and bath items that last a long time save on cost for your loved one who won’t need to replace it soon. Everyone appreciates that!

Easy Care Linens

Make your loved one appreciate your thoughtfulness even more by making your gift an item that is easy to care for. Quality linens are machine washable, relatively wrinkle free, and still look great after each wash. The best made linens will retain their shape, beauty and comfortable feel longer. Choose materials that retain and even increase their softness after each wash, like Egyptian cotton sheets or a microfleece blanket.

Consider Taste and Preference

Of course sheets and towels come in an assorted variety of colors and styles. When buying bed sheets, be sure you know what size bed you are buying for so they will fit perfectly. If you know your intended user’s tastes well, go ahead and select a color you just know they’ll love and will fit their decor. But, if you want to be more careful, buy a neutral color that will go with everything. Most people like to accessorize their bed or bathroom on their own, so white, beige or tan colors are a good neutral choice to let them splurge on adding colors of their choice with a spray of pillows and throws.

It is also important to consider the feel of the linen before purchasing. Choose a fabric that suits the person you are gifting. The weave of the linen also matters a lot.  Remember that the lightweight sheets and those that are closely woven have a smoother and crispy feel and are perfect for people who are hot sleepers.

Choosing the Perfect Pillow

PIllows are a more personal gift than sheets or towels as they are key to properly supporting the sleeper’s head and neck to avoid neck pain or stiffness and allow for more restful sleep. If you know the person’s preferred sleep style (side, back or stomach sleeper), that will help you pick the right type of pillow. You should know if the person prefers a soft or firmer pillow and whether they have allergies to any pillow ingredients such as down or feathers.
