Should You Ever Give a Mattress as a Gift? [5 Reasons to Gift a Bed]

by Ann Ferguson

You might be asking yourself: should I give a mattress as a gift? The simple answer is yes, of course! Giving a mattress is a stellar gift for that hard-to-shop-for loved one or that someone who never splurges on themselves.

Not convinced? Well, here are a few things to consider: A new mattress can help relieve stress, back or joint pain, reduce allergies (ugh asthma), and improve your loved one’s quality of life so they don’t feel groggy or weak.

Now that you’re intrigued, consider buying a new mattress for your children (or nieces and nephews), your parents, grandparents, or even your significant other—who says you can’t enjoy the gift too?

1. Mattress Shopping for Little Kids

Is it time for your sweet baby’s first big-kid mattress? Are your children asking for bunk beds? Make them feel all grown up with their first real mattress that still leaves them room to grow like a weed.

(Depending on current safety restrictions, you can possibly even make a day out of it with a family trip to our showroom and keep them entertained while you scope out the perfect fit. Or you can browse our online catalog with budget and filters set, and have your kiddo pick what they like!)

2. Gift-Wrapping a Mattress to a Young Adult

Is your kid just going off to college or moving in to his or her first off-campus apartment? They’ve surely outgrown their bed at home, and they might not have enough time to join you on a shopping trip. But since you’re already well acquainted with their sleep habits, why not ship them a mattress-in-a-box?

They can set up the mattress themselves, even in their compact studio apartment, and (hopefully) get back to their studies in no time. Plus, with a new, comfy mattress, they’ll get the rejuvenating sleep they need to make the semester less stressful—and they’ll know who to thank!

3. A New Mattress for Mom & Dad or Nana & Pops

Feel like giving back to your parents or grandparents? You know they’re not going to get a new mattress for themselves, either because they haven’t thought of it or are on a fixed income—so why not? They might insist that their old one works fine (and has for however long), but that’s just because they don’t know what they’re missing yet.

Be sure to involve them in every step of the process so they get the mattress that improves their day-to-day. Ask if they experience a lot of hip, back, neck, or joint pain and take them to the showroom to test out the mattress type, comfort level, and size that works for them. Or help them do their own research on their sleep habits.

And if that seems like too much back-and-forth, have them give us a call and we’ll help guide them through every question!

4. Gift A Mattress to the Newlyweds

Did your bestie from college just get hitched? Did your sibling just tie the knot? Is your adult “kid” ready to start their own family? They probably need a new mattress. Not only can a new mattress be a symbol of starting their new life together, but they’re probably already planning on saving up for a new one, so they’ll appreciate the help.

You can either involve them in your shopping plans, or you can surprise them with a gift certificate. A gift card lets the newlyweds buy that mattress they’ve already had their eye on, so you don’t have to do any guesswork. And they’ll enjoy making one of their first big purchases as a newly married couple!

5. Honey, I Bought You A New Mattress!

Thinking about getting a new mattress for your significant other? Sure, it might seem a little self-serving, but why not give you and your partner a mattress that will help both of you sleep better?

Maybe your sleep schedules have changed recently, or you’ve noticed that your partner is always tossing and turning. A new mattress, like a hybrid mattress, can help you both get the sleep you deserve—just stop by our showroom on your next shopping trip!

Or, since you’re already well-versed in your partner’s sleep habits, make it a surprise they won’t be expecting.
