Did you ever think of buying your dad a memory foam mattress for Father’s Day? We all have a similar problem with our dads at this time of year. They tend to already have everything that they want so finding the ideal gift for them is very difficult. We usually stick to the same old staple gifts – socks, DVDs, chocolate or books. Why not make this year the year that you do something different?
A memory foam mattress is a gift with a difference. As our dads get older they are more likely to suffer from aches and pains and ensuring that they can enjoy a good night’s sleep means that they will feel more comfortable during the day too. The soreness of pressure points can often be worse as you get older, which is one of the reasons why many hospitals and care homes opt for memory foam mattresses instead of standard ones.
The technology of a memory foam mattress was first developed by NASA. This is another reason why this might make a good gift for dad. Many men love gadgets and owning something that was developed for use in space will give the mattress a new cachet. He won’t be able to resist giving it a try when he finds out.
General good health is something that we all want for our dads and those who are dealing with conditions such as obesity and blood pressure can be helped with the use of a memory foam mattress. A good night’s sleep means that we are less likely to be stressed or suffer from depression and this means that we are better able to deal with the challenges of each day. As we cope with life better, we are less likely to suffer from high blood pressure and other related conditions.
The memory foam option is also a good way of ensuring that you get more good quality sleep. How many of us survive on 5 or 6 hours sleep a night? For good health this is not enough, particularly if you are sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress and spend part of that time just trying to find a comfortable sleeping position. With a memory foam mattress you can get comfortable much more quickly and should be able to achieve 7 or 8 hours a night much more easily.
Just think how beneficial that could be for your dad. Even if he doesn’t suffer from aches or pains or sleeps quite well already, he will still notice the difference with a memory foam mattress and you do not need to worry about expense. Over the last few years there have been advances in the production of the material so that they are now much more affordable than they were originally. Spending a lot of money is not necessary to get a good quality memory foam mattress and it is a gift that will last for many years to come.
