Top 7 Useful Christmas Gifts | Beyond Sapiens

Listen to the Blog

1. Useful Gifts – Red Light

We’ll cover gifts ranging from 10 to 300 dollars, and you can find all the details at end of this post. Let’s start with the 1st useful gift. This will help you or your loved ones optimize their sleep, and it’s a portable red light or a red light bulb. This is extremely useful to avoid bright lights in the late part of the day and helps promote sleep.

Why red? Because this color doesn’t interfere with your circadian clock, and it promotes melatonin release, the sleep hormone. Besides the color, it’s also important that the light is dimmable. A bright light will signal to your brain that it’s daytime. For example, if you need to use the toilet at night and turn on the regular light, it will be much more challenging to get back to sleep.

Price ranges from 10 to 50 dollars, making it a fairly cheap yet very useful gift.

2. Useful Gifts – Knowledge

If you don’t know what useful gift to buy or what a person actually needs, gifting someone with knowledge is an excellent go-to!

Giving an online course or a certificate program is a valuable gift, and you can find them within a wide price range, from 30-100 + USD. As the famous quote says, knowledge is the only thing that can not be taken away from you or stolen. 

3. Useful Gifts – Valuable Subscriptions

Another non-material present you can gift is a subscription. No, we don’t mean a Netflix subscription, but a valuable subscription for example, to an audiobook platform, a meditation app, or an educational platform.

This is a beautiful way of gifting something valuable and personal. You can often find everything from monthly to yearly subscriptions varying from 50-150 USD. Additionally, you can gift your time together with the subscription by taking on the same challenge, for example, meditating every day, or listening to the same audiobooks

4. Useful Gifts – eBook Reader

Books are always a great gift, but what about an ebook reader like the Kindle? That gives you the power to keep hundreds, if not thousands, of books in your pocket, and it has great features to enhance the reading experience.

In fact, you can save all your highlights and run searches throughout your entire library, changing font and font size, reading in complete darkness, and much more. The basic version comes at $120, while from $160, you can get the Kindle Paperwhite with adjustable warm light to optimize evening reading.

5. Useful Gifts – Vagus Nerve Stimulator

Talking of which, books can help us unwind, but what if you or the gift receiver are often stressed? Then Pulsetto could be a great idea. It’s a neuromodulation device that stimulates the vagus nerve, and in doing so, it activates the parasympathetic nervous system, allowing the body to rest and relax.

The cool thing about this is that it takes only 4 minutes per day to reap the same benefits that you’d get by doing breathwork or meditations for much longer. It’s FCC certified, and you can get it for 179€ from here.

6. Useful Gifts – Filter Optix Blue-Light Blocking Glasses

To continue on the same theme of reducing stress, sleep is one of the most important factors for mental and physical health. Would you believe that by gifting someone with blue light-blocking glasses, you could help someone to improve their life quality? Yes, that is true.

Most of us use digital devices and screens for a significant amount of our time each day, which emit large amounts of artificial blue light through our eyes into our cells. This disturbs your hormonal balance, directly affecting sleep and the circadian rhythm, which can cause critical health issues in the long run.

That’s why Filter Optix blue-light blocking glasses are designed to block 100% of the artificial blue light, protecting you from its adverse effects and helping you naturally increase your melatonin levels, optimize your circadian rhythm, induce relaxation, reduce stress and cortisol levels among many other benefits, but ultimately improving your sleep.

You can find these in 4 different lenses, with different features, and in many frames, which makes it easy for you to personalize your gift. They cost 187 euros, but you can get 15% off your entire order by using the code BEYONDSAPIENS15 at checkout. 

7. Useful Gifts – Sleep Tracker

Gift #7 is: the Oura Ring. It’s incredibly light, weighing only 4 grams, and it’s a high-tech powerhouse that gives you valuable data to take control of your health. It’s one of the most accurate consumer sleep trackers.

It gives you an overview of your sleep phases each night while monitoring your heart rate, heart rate variability, average blood oxygenation, and skin temperature. Why would one need all this data? Besides making data nerds like us happy, having constant access to these parameters can help anyone prioritize their sleep and well-being in a very compact and fashionable way.

Bonus Useful Gift – Thought Gift

​​We have one more bonus gift idea for you. These were the top seven gifts, but if you don’t want to buy something, you’re still able to create an incredible gift only with the power of your mind. By turning your attention inside and reflecting on what you think about someone or how you feel about someone, you can write a letter, a personalized support card, or just make up a poem that you read for the person you want to gift.

This way, you can give something special that money can not buy, and you will have a perfect opportunity to take a moment to reflect and feel grateful for someone in your life. We highly recommend trying this or combining it with some of the gifts mentioned above! We hope you got some creative ideas for actually useful gifts!
