How to choose the perfect pillow

Trying to choose the perfect pillow is no easy task. There is a lot of selection available: breathe easy pillows, V shaped pillows, microfibre, bamboo quilted and many other kinds are all available online and in high street shops. Here are a few tried and tested ideas to help you find your perfect pillow...

As well as the usual types of pillows mentioned above, there are some lesser-known varieties. One of these could very well be right for you, so keep them in mind when you're trying to choose the perfect pillow.

Chillow pillows help keep you cool through the night. If you live somewhere hot, if you’re feeling under the weather, get headaches, suffer from back pain or have sunburn, a chillow could be all you need to get a good night's sleep. You will no longer need to flip your pillow to the cool side - the whole thing is cool!

The Note Me pillow (available from curiosite.com) is a cute idea. You could have a different pillow sketch or wake up to a nice message every day. Write or draw directly onto the pillow and clear it by running it under cold water. Don’t worry - you won’t wake up covered in ink.

Sound Asleep pillows have built in speakers but you can barely tell. You can plug them into pretty much any audio device - perhaps watch TV while your partner sleeps so you won’t bother them. They're great for listening to music or listening to audiobooks. They have quite a range available - choose between the original pillow, memory foam pillow, travel pillow, kids' pillow or even a blanket. Check out soundasleeppillow.co.uk for more information.

Trying to choose the perfect pillow can be painful, but if you're looking for something a little different these ideas might be perfect for you. If you're shelling out for an expensive pillow, make sure that you test it in the shop before you buy. These pillows can also make great gifts!
