A good night’s sleep is crucial to our well-being, and there’s no time like the present to get your bedtime routine in order — or help a friend solidify a healthy nighttime regimen. The Hatch Restore combines an alarm clock, sound machine, sunrise alarm, smart light and meditation app in one sleek smart assistant that takes up little real estate on your nightstand. You can create and personalize a morning and nighttime routine that will help you fall asleep and stay asleep. (My bedtime routine, for example, is 45 minutes of a soft-glow reading light so I can curl up with my Kindle, followed by 45 minutes of light rain until I drift off to Dreamland.) The sunrise alarm will transform your mornings, too. You can wake up to a sound with 10 different sunrise hues to choose from, like Portland Lighthouse, Morning in Prague and — my personal favorite — Hiking in the Dawn. And when you just need to simply de-stress during the day, create a custom “mood” with a variety of soothing sounds and lights and allow your mind to wander. Plus, for just $49.99 a year, you can enable your (optional) Hatch Sleep Membership to gain unlimited access to a massive library of wind-down meditations, soundscapes and more. This is a splurge-worthy gift that may change their life!

Simply fill up the water reservoir, add 20-25 drops of 100-percent pure essential oils, then put the plastic cap and ceramic top back on and choose your time setting — four or eight hours, which will last all night on intermittent mist. You can even choose from Vitruvi's huge selection of single-origin essential oils, blends and themed kits, like the Unwind Kit with their Dusk, Quiet, Nightcap and Sleep blends.
For those who want to easily keep their phone and other devices charged without adding ugly tech to the home, the Catch:3 charging dock from Courant is the perfect gift.

Plus, the stainless-steel finish will look sleek on your kitchen countertops or tabletops. Our favorite features, though: low water and nutrient reminders, automated lights and vacation mode.
