Dreamegg White Noise Sound Machine

Amazon, Dreamegg Sound Machine, CANVA, General gift list

SHOP NOW on Amazon.ca: Here’s everyone’s top product for a long winter’s nap! The Dreamegg is suitable for all ages and helps you fall and stay asleep. While there are many benefits to using a sound machine in a baby’s room, it can also help tinnitus patients, shift workers, insomnia sufferers, and people who live in loud environments obtain better quality sleep. This must-have gadget features several sound selections, a warm glow night light, a timer for various settings, volume control, and a convenient headphone jack.

MediAcous Light Therapy Lamp

MediAcous Light Therapy Lamp (Amazon)

SHOP NOW on Amazon.ca: Even though you’ve had a good sleep thanks to the Dreamegg, the body still struggles with the lack of sunlight. A UV-free light therapy lamp like this one mimics the sunlight and helps increase your energy, boost your mood, enhance your focus, and leave you feeling revitalized. Aside from its four brightness settings, it has a good handle on the light temperature as well, from warm amber to bright white – whichever you react best to.
