Christmas is a magical time of year, however, the endless wrapping, shopping, cleaning and hosting that goes along with it can often make us forget this. This is why I believe the gift of a relaxing night sleep cannot be overestimated! I was sent three dreamy and affordable products from Feather & Down, which will definitely help restore peace and tranquillity to any chaotic household of Christmas. Each product is not only packaged beautifully but work in harmony to encourage a restful night’s sleep through regime, routine and their specially blended fragrance containing lavender & chamomile essential oils.
Each product is packaged beautifully in midnight blue and decorated with stars, swirls and gold font. I honestly thought these were high-end products at first as they felt, looked and smelled incredibly indulgent and expensive. I was over-the-moon to discover how affordable they are. As well as their official store, Feather & Down is also now available at Boots and, if you act quickly, you may be able to pick these up (as well as their candle, bath essence, bath salts, diffuser and body oil) as part of a cheeky 3 for 2 offer here.
My bedding has been drenched in the Sweet Dreams Pillow Spray (£7 | 100ml) for the past two weeks and my bedroom has never smelled this amazing or inviting before. If you’re like me and can never seem to shut off from the world around you, especially when your head hits the pillow, you need this in your life. The infusion of lavender and chamomile essential oils really helps to create a calming atmosphere which encourages my overactive and anxious mind to settle down. By closing my eyes and concentrating on inhaling this beautiful aroma I feel more at peace and less likely to start creating to-do lists in my head or worry about my week ahead.
I’ve been using the Sweet Dreams Melting Shower Cream (£6 | 250ml) as a pre-bed treat to help wash away all the yuckiness (yes, that is the technical term) and tension of the day. Like the name suggests, when massaged onto your skin, the cream melts into an oil. Not only does it leave your skin feeling softer and instantly pampered, the delicate scent also lingers on your skin. This definitely isn’t your typical shower gel and would make an extra special gift for anyone who doesn’t have a bath but still loves a good pamper session.
Finally, the Sweet Dreams All Purpose Sleep Balm (£7 | 16g) contains all the loveliness of the other two products in a handbag-friendly tub perfect for travelling with. In fact, I have an overnight stay at Crieff Hydro Spa & Hotel in the new year and I know for a fact that this little guy is coming with me. The non-greasy balm also contains lavender and chamomile essential oils blended with nourishing Vitamin E. Simply rub a little of this on your pulse points (wrists, temples and neck) to drift off into the Land of Nod.
If you want to create a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere in your home this Christmas, I definitely recommend this collection. Just knowing that have an indulgent and calming bedtime routine to come home too makes the stresses of mum and work life seem less demanding and draining. The festive season comes and goes so quickly and this range is sure to help slow everything down and allow you to savour every sip of hot chocolate and every Michael Buble carol cooing away in the background.
