The Best Pillows to Add to Your Wedding Registry
When creating your wedding registry, it's a good idea to make sure you cover all of your basis. That's why we believe all gifts should fall into one of three categories: items you really need, items you really want, or items you already have but need to upgrade. Pillows almost always fall into the latter camp. Sure, the pillows you're sleeping on right now are probably fine, but have you even considered that you could get a better night's sleep if you replaced them with something newer, plusher, or better suited to your sleep style?
As it turns out, this household must-have is something very few couples think about when building a wedding registry. Sure, that fancy new kitchen appliance or a beautiful set of dinnerware might be hard to resist, but adding those to your wish list shouldn't stop you from also picking out a few upgrades that can seriously enhance your quality of life. After all, getting a good and comfortable night's sleep is important; having the right pillows to rest your head on facilitates that.
Luckily, there are a ton of different options out there for every type of sleeper. Whether you like a firm or super soft pillow, down or memory foam, you'll find that there are so many registry-worthy picks available. To help you narrow down the wide selection on the market, we've picked out a number of our favorites—we think you'll like them, too. All that's left to do is register with confidence and look forward to unwrapping quality, long-lasting pillows one day soon.
Gel and memory foam fills are great, but there's something to be said for classic down filling (as long as you aren't allergic!). This pillow, which is specially designed for side sleepers, will keep your neck supported and keep you dreaming in comfort.
