What Does Every Mom Actually Want This Mother’s Day? A Good Night’s Sleep

Tired? Us, too. Let's fix that for mamas everywhere this Mother's Day.

By Courtney Thompson

If I had to make a list of things I’d like for Mother’s Day, it would be a long one. Custom jewelry with my kids’ initials? Yup. A 90-minute deep tissue massage? That, too. This Saint Laurent Quilted Crossbody Bag in black? Oh, hell yes.

But ask any mom what they actually want — nay, what they actually need — and they will shout in unison, “Sleep!” Take it from someone who has four kids, sleep is a gift more valuable than gold, diamonds, or whatever else you were thinking about getting the mama in your life this Mother’s Day. And while there are lots of products out there to help you get a better night’s rest, a glorious new customized mattress and adjustable pillow from Helix is the most surefire way to ensure she catches her z’s — and that you’re her favorite child or earn major spousal brownie points.

Yes, a mattress and pillow might seem like an odd (or just extremely large) gift choice, but believe me, she will be singing your praises after one night. Made to order in the U.S., Helix mattresses are custom, in that you fill out a quick online survey to personalize a bed that serves all her sleeping needs. Sample questions: “Do you toss and turn at night?” and “Do you ever wake up with pain in the morning?” 

Couples will especially appreciate Helix, as the company has two solutions for those in a relationship — one, you can settle on the happy medium “blended” mattress that does just that, blends both of your needs into one happy bed. Or two, couples can choose the “hybrid” option that literally divides the mattress in half, putting each of your preferences on the left or right side. Once Helix has the survey information, they build your bed by varying the densities and the order of the mattress’ materials, which include a proprietary “Helix foam” that cools sleepers, microcoils for pressure relief and less bounce and good ol’ polyfoam for support. The result? A mattress that isn’t too soft, isn’t too hard, but is juuust right…for her, of course. As for the pillow, it’s the icing on the proverbial cake (er, mattress?) because of its flexibility — comprised of an outer memory foam shell, the pillow also houses two inserts (one memory foam, one down) that can be removed depending on the user’s sleep preferences. Combined these two genius products will give your lady with the key components she needs to achieve her best sleep. We swear!

The best part? Both are on SALE for Mother’s Day. Get $75 off a mattress using the code MATTRESS18, or get $125 off a bundled purchase (mattress + additional item) with the code MOM18. Shop both the mattress and the pillow below.
