The night is the time when we retire to our beds to shrug off stress and fatigue. Health experts around the world believe that the human body needs at least seven to eight hours of sleep every night to rejuvenate and distress. One of the several things that stand between us and a good night’s sleep is uncomfortable nightwear.

 

To sleep like a baby, one needs to slip into comfortable nightwear that gently caresses the body. The sleepwear should be made of lightweight, free-flowing material that should take the shape of the wearer’s body.

 

Comfortable nightwear can be an ideal gift for the special man in your life. When you gift men’s nightwear to your partner, you don’t just gift him apparel, but good sleep. The thoughtful gift is sure to spread a smile across his face. To help you make informed decisions, we have compiled a list of best nightwear gift ideas for men. Take a look.

 

1. Pajamas 

Who doesn’t love pajamas? They are easy to slip into and take off. Look for pajamas that are designed to not stick to the body. Pajamas feature different materials, including silk, cotton, linen, rayon, chambray, viscose, wool, and polar fleece. While cotton, linen, rayon, chambray, and viscose pajamas are fit for use in summer, wool and polar fleece pajamas sell like hot cakes during winter. Silk pajamas can be worn throughout the year.

 

2. Sweatpants

If your hubby sweats a lot, a pair of sweatpants can be a godsend for him. Sweatpants are designed to absorb moisture. To help your special one relax, steer clear of heavy fabrics such as fleece. Instead, look for sweatpants made of a material that is specially designed to wick away moisture. The best thing about sweatpants is that they can be worn throughout the year. When the mercury dips, sweatpants trap heat close to the body.

 

3. Thermal robes

Thermal robes are designed to facilitate cross ventilation. Best thermal robes do not stick to the skin. When buying a thermal robe for your man, make sure it features soft material for enhanced comfort. Look for robes with cotton-rich blend and a brushed interior for extra softness. Make sure it has pockets on both sides for convenience.

 

4. Lounge pants

When purchasing lounge pants, the most important thing to consider is the fabric. Look for pants that feature breathable fabric. Opt for pants that include heat transfer label for tagless comfort. To ensure your loved one gets a good night’s sleep during winter, look for fleece lounge pants.

 

5. Underwear

Look for underwear made of microdermal fabric blend that feels luxurious without compromising on comfort. To give new life to your man’s wardrobe, look for briefs with cool prints and patterns.

 

 

 

Some factors to consider when buying nightwear gifts for men

 

1. Measurements

When buying nightwear, you cannot afford to get measurements wrong. A tight, body-hugging night dress fails miserably at serving its purpose and can do more harm than good, keeping your man awake during nights. When buying men’s pajama or any other nightwear for your hubby, go through the size chart to correlate the specific pajama sizes to different body measurements. If in doubt, consider buying a larger size, as pajamas serve their purpose only when they are loose-fitted.

 

2. Fabric

 

Cotton 

Cotton pajamas are an ideal gift for your loved one and will make his summer even more impressive. Cotton is a natural fiber and is widely used in men’s pajamas. Some USPs of cotton include:

 

  • Extremely lightweight and breathable.
  • Superior moisture-wicking capabilities
  • Allows the heat to escape the body

 

Linen

Linen is woven from flax fibers. Over the last few years, linen pajamas have gained immense popularity. Because it is loosely woven and promotes cross-ventilation, linen is one of the most popular materials used in men’s loungewear.

 

Some benefits of linen include:

 

  • Superior durability
  • Lightweight
  • Superior moisture soaking capabilities
  • Does not stick to the body

 

Rayon

Rayon is blended from natural fibers and is often dubbed an affordable alternative to silk. When it comes to affordability, rayon has the upper hand over many other fabrics.

 

Some advantages of rayon include:

 

  • Extremely lightweight (even lighter than cotton).
  • Superior durability
  • Gently caresses the skin
  • Excellent moisture absorbing capabilities.

 

Wool

A study shows that wearing wool pajamas to bed can help the wearer sleep better. Researchers believe that merino wool helps the body reach its thermal comfort zone quicker than usual. When this happens, the person can fall asleep faster. Many researchers claim that people who wear woolen pajamas to bed not just fall asleep faster, but also sleep better.

 

Some major advantages of wool are:

 

  • Superior breathability
  • Traps air
  • Helps regulate body temperature
  • Provides warmth

 

Polar fleece

When it comes to keeping the body warm during chilly winter nights, polar fleece is second only to wool. Derived from polyester, polar fleece is one of the most affordable materials used in nightwear.

 

Some benefits of polar fleece are:

 

  • Affordability
  • Easily available
  • Does not stick to the skin and is known for its softness.

 

Silk

Silk is, arguably, the most dynamic material. Though silk nightwear is costly, they can be used all year round. During winter, many people prefer full-length pajama sets that not only help regulate body temperature but also look stylish and exquisite.

 

Some benefits of silk nightwear include:

 

  • Look classy and elegant
  • Soft on the skin
  • Lightweight and durable (thanks to superior stretchability).
  • Do not wrinkle easily.

 

Care required

 

When buying nightwear, enquire about the care required to maintain the apparel. For hassle-free maintenance, opt for machine-washable nightwear. If possible, avoid nightwear with too many washing and other instructions.
