4 minute read

The holidays are going to look a little different this year with the COVID-19 pandemic still wreaking havoc on our everyday lives... The CDC recommends that the safest way to enjoy holiday festivities is to celebrate at home with people who live with you. SHEEX® wants everyone to follow CDC guidelines for travel, but if you must travel, please follow these guidelines:

  • Get tested 1-3 days before travel and three to five days after returning from travel.

  • Avoid nonessential public activities for seven days after returning from travel, or 10 days if the person doesn’t get tested.

  • Wear a mask and properly social distance.

  • Check the CDC website for more detailed guidelines.

With that being said, if you’re planning to have loved ones stay with you during the holidays, there are a few things you should consider doing to make their visit warm and cozy. Keep reading for great advice to help you prep for your holiday guests.

Help Your Guests Decompress

The holidays can be a stressful time, and with COVID-19 in the mix, the anxiety might be too overwhelming. No matter who’s coming home for the holidays, show them that you care about their well-being and give them the SHEEX® CALM + COOL Weighted Blanket to help ease their nerves. 

Our CALM + COOL Weight Blanket puts an end to anxiety-induced insomnia thanks to its hug-like Deep Touch Therapy Sensation, which has been scientifically proven to stimulate the release of serotonin and melatonin. Additionally, our blanket’s Ridiculously Soft® hand feel enhances this sensation of a hug, which helps reduce stress and promote relaxation and comfort. 

SHEEX® CALM + COOL Weight Blanket isn’t like any other weighted blanket. The secret ingredient is the premium SHEEX® Serenity Glass Beads™, which are so amazing compared to the plastic beads found in most other weighted blankets. The inner blanket has dozens of sewn boxes filled with SHEEX® Serenity Glass Beads™ to evenly distribute the weight and give you that comforting hug sensation. Plus, our weighted blanket boasts a removable, washable cover to help reduce allergens.

Create an Ideal Environment for Sleep

A good night’s sleep provides many benefits. For one, it can boost your immune system, which is very important during winter when infections and illnesses are in full swing. A full night’s rest also helps improve your mood. After waking up rested, you’ll be more energized and happier throughout the day as you enjoy spending time with your family. Additionally, your productivity can increase, which comes in handy when you need to finish wrapping presents or making holiday treats. 


To show your holiday guests the power of sleep, make their room an ideal place to catch some quality ZZZs. You want the environment to be cool, quiet, and dark. Consider adding helpful sleep accessories such as blackout curtains, earplugs, and scented candles to the bedroom. Then, outfit the bed with our cooling sheets and cooling pillows. This Ridiculously Soft® combination provides enhanced breathability, moisture-wicking capabilities, and comfortable support to give your holiday guests the best sleep of their lives.


Whether your college student is coming home or out-of-town relatives are visiting, it’s important to be cautious during the holiday season, so follow CDC guidelines to ensure your festivities are safe.
