We did some extensive research together with Riley's Furniture to find suppliers for Nap Desks who could be used for healthy and quick afternoon naps in the office. So far no luck in Australia.
But we came across an alternative: The Ostrich Pillow, which is available online for just $99.
Who would like this?: Power nappers, sleep lovers, workaholics, insomniacs ... better question: Who wouldn't like this?
We all have that friend who constantly complains about being tired. Put your money where their mouth is this holiday season by gifting them with this out-of-this-world awesome Ostrich Pillow, a product that will make you look somewhere between nerdy and nerd-chic.
Whether on the go or at the office, this pillow is perfect for instantly converting your desk or the airport cafeteria table into a comfortable place to catch a quick snooze. Far more comfortable than your average neck pillow, you'll feel so at ease with your head in its new case that you'll be opting for more time under the hood.
The thoughtfully designed pillow has four holes: two for your arms, one for breathing from your nose and mouth, and one for your neck. It's available in three colors: sleepy blue, sunset siesta and mellow yellow.
If you're looking for a lighter option, a simpler pillow is available which just wraps around the head and eyes, called Ostrich Pillow Light, which will support your face if you find yourself reclining on a window or wall. If you're shopping for a younger family member, try the Ostrich Pillow Junior, a small version of the original pillow.
The Ostrich Pillow came to exist through the fruit of a successful Kickstarter campaign last year. Its designer, the UK-based studio Kawamura-Ganjavian, raised nearly $200,000 to bring the pillow to market, which was more than double its $70,000 goal.
The bottom line: This gift is great for someone who loves cutting edge, thoughtfully designed products, as well as someone who could care less about the new and shiny and just would just like a gift to improve their life an teensy bit.
