If you’re going on a pillow hunt this Black Friday, we can help you get prepared to ensure you get the best
Black Friday deal. 🏷️
Before November 26th, here are some tips on how you can have a
successful Black Friday.
1. Write a list of your favourite products
You probably already
have an idea of the kind of pillow you want or even some specific products in mind.
Writing a list or bookmarking your favourite retailers in preparation can save some time for Black Friday shopping.
Black Friday pillow bestsellers are likely to go out of stock quickly, so it’s always better to be as prepared as possible. 📝 2. Consider your sleeping position
sleeping position is one of the key factors you should consider when choosing a pillow.
Most people don’t realise that you’ll need an entirely different pillow depending on whether you sleep on your
side, back, or stomach. 🤔 Best pillow for side sleepers
Side sleepers generally need a deep and firm pillow. 🧱
Side sleepers need more height in their pillow.
When you sleep on your side, this creates a bigger distance between your head and the mattress.
A side sleeper pillow is deep enough to
fill the space between the head and shoulders and keep the spine straight during the night. Best pillow for back sleepers
Back sleepers need a medium-height and medium-firm pillow. 🧸
A medium pillow is best for back sleepers.
For back sleepers, you want a pillow that is going to
align your neck with your spine.
A pillow that is not too low or deep will help maintain that straight alignment.
Additionally, the pillow should
cushion your head and shoulders without sinking in too much or too little. Best pillow for stomach sleepers
stomach sleepers, your pillow should be low and soft. ☁️
The lowest possible pillow is preferable to stomach sleepers.
Stomach sleepers need to
keep their head as close to the mattress as they can to prevent an unnatural bend in the neck and spine.
Therefore, a low and soft pillow or even
no pillow at all is ideal. 3. Identify the most important factors in a pillow
Before choosing your pillow, consider what
qualities your pillow needs to ensure it is the best product for your lifestyle. ✔️
Think about the following:
What is your most/least favourite thing about your current pillow?
Are you a hot sleeper?
Do you suffer from allergies?
What firmness do you prefer?
What is your budget?
Does the pillow need to be machine-washable?
These factors will be important when choosing a pillow.
For example, whilst a
memory foam pillow is hypoallergenic, it’s not always the best choice for hot sleepers. 🌡️ 4. Consider the different types of pillows available
Although most pillows come in
standard sizes, there are all kinds of pillow shapes and styles to choose from. 🤔
Pillows come in all shapes and sizes.
Types of pillows include:
Choose the best suited to you.
5. How much should I spend on a pillow?
It’s easy to get carried away when shopping on Black Friday, so we recommend
having a budget in mind before you start looking for a good deal. 💰
Consider how much you want to spend before the Black Friday sale begins.
How much you spend on a pillow can depend on different factors.
Think about the following:
Who is the pillow for/how often will it be used?
What is the most I can reasonably spend on a new pillow?
What is the quality of the materials in the pillow?
Does the pillow come with a sleep trial?
How long is the warranty on the pillow?
Do I need any other pillow accessories, such as pillow protectors or pillowcases?
quality of materials and warranty is important when considering the cost. 🤔
For example, even though the Panda London pillow is more expensive than a typical hollowfibre pillow, it is made with high-quality memory foam and comes with a 10-year guarantee.
By buying a
one-off high-quality pillow for around £50, you’ll pay less in the long term.
£50 may seem expensive; this works out at just £5 per year for ten years. 😮
This will work out
even less when you factor in the Black Friday pillow discount. 6. Read pillow reviews
Before settling on a decision, it’s often a good idea to look at reviews and
see what to expect from your new pillow. 👀
Reviews can be a great source of unbiased information.
However, it’s always best to remember that
reviews are subjective - everybody has different expectations and needs from their pillow.

These reviews can certainly help you decide!
