Everybody needs sleep -- and most of us wish we got more of it. So this year, why not give someone that very thing?

A sleep-promoting gift has the benefit of being (at least a little bit) more exciting to receive than some traditional health-minded presents (because absolutely no one wants to open a scale on Christmas morning). But these are still smart options: Getting too little sleep ups a person's risk for stroke, diabetes, obesity and even earlier death.

So feel good about snagging a few of these options for the loved ones on your shopping list -- and tell us what's on your healthful wish list this year in the comments below!
