There are not enough hot chocolate cups to get them to sleep. They haven’t touched a cup of coffee in weeks. Yet they still can’t get some rest. They can’t fall in the hands of Morpheus even if their life depended on it. If you know an insomniac, are living with one or are one yourself, you can relate to the struggle.
The best gift you can buy them is a few hours of quality REM sleep. To help you with that, we rounded up the best insomniac gifts to order online now!
