These have so many easy-to-use features that others don’t. In addition to the sunrise and sunset emulation features, these are portable, so she can simply pick one up from her nightstand in the middle of the night and gently shake it to activate a subtle glow that will light her path to the bathroom or kitchen. They’re also lightweight, very minimal in design and come with an app that anyone can use.

Ditch the standard plug-ins for this plug-in scent diffuser that fills any room with the most soothing and long-lasting natural essential oil blends. Unlike most plug-ins, this one from the best-selling brand Pura fills small to extra-large rooms with soothing scents that are 100% naturally derived.
