Sure, flowers and chocolate are nice, as is perfume or jewellery, but what do mothers really want this Mother’s Day? More sleep!

It’s the number one complaint between all mothers, no matter how hard they seem to try, they just don’t get enough sleep. In fact, a fifth of all mums would put a good night’s sleep and a long-lie at the top of their wish list. Which is exactly why you should try to give your mum or wife the gift of sleep this March.

Mothers-Day-300.jpgThat’s because there is nothing quite like getting a good night’s sleep. You wake up feeling refreshed, motivated and ready to face the day. Even better, you’ll look better too – it’s not called beauty sleep for nothing. A good night’s sleep helps your skin look better, reduces wrinkles and even helps your hair look and feel better. It makes sense, too. When we sleep, our bodies go through loads of processes from recalibrating our brains to producing the materials needed for strong hair and nails. However, if we don’t get enough sleep, our body will choose what it thinks is the most important processes to do. One of the first things to go is producing keratin for our hair and collagen to improve skin – and these are both important things to a lady.

So how do you give the gift of sleep? Well first off, what state is you mum’s or wife’s mattress in? A poor quality or old mattress is the top reason for a lack of good quality sleep in both men and woman. If yours is older than seven or eight years, has notable wear or even just feels uncomfortable, then now is the time to start shopping for a new mattress.

There are numerous types of mattress on the market, with one that everybody will love. You might want something like a hybrid mattress with a combination of springs and memory foam, which is perfect for couples. This mattress will cushion the movement of your partner so you won’t be woken as much if they get up during the night. This is particularly important if you have kids and one of you is getting up during the night for feeds. Big Brand Beds have several hybrid mattresses that are extremely popular. Look at the Which? Best Buy Sealy 1200 Pocket Silver Genoa mattress or the Relyon Pocket Memory Classic mattress. From the feedback we've had from our customers we're certain you'll get a great night’s sleep.

This means, if the mattress is for your partner, then it’s not just her that will benefit. You’ll both get a superb sleep every night, which is perfect for ensuring you’re both ready to face the trials of the next day.
