Why Give the Gift of Linen?
Experiences are the best gifts at Christmas. This year give your loved ones the gift of a good night’s sleep surrounded by luxury bedding, over and over again!
Christmas shopping can be a stressful experience at the best of times and choosing the perfect gift that shows just how much you care can be difficult, but we have the answer.
Why Bedding Makes the Perfect Gift
Purchasing the perfect gift is a balance between choosing something needed or something luxurious the recipient would never buy for themselves. You definitely want to avoid items that are put in the back of the cupboard and never see the light of day unless you are visiting, or worse something used just once and put in a regift pile or the bin!
At Vision we believe everyone wants and needs a good night's sleep, it is an essential and for some a luxury and it’s an experience that cannot be put away in a cupboard!
Choosing to give bedding shows you care about your loved ones' health and well-being, it creates a long-lasting memory and is a perfect hug at the end of the day.
How to Choose the Right Bedding
After a good night's sleep, you wake up rejuvenated and ready to take on the day. A good night's sleep for us involves a breathable fabric that is soft and gentle on your skin, which is comfortable and cosy and looks gorgeous.
For that Luxury Gift Vision Recommends...
At Vision, we specialize in 5* hotel luxury and are suppliers to some of the biggest names in hospitality including Hilton, IHG, Marriott and Accor. Imagine the delight of waking up with that 5* feeling every day, and imagine being the one who has given that gift!
To achieve that hotel look and feel, choose classic white bedding and this will avoid any clashes in décor already in the room.
Thread count refers to threads per square inch. The finer the thread the higher the thread count. We recommend you purchase the highest thread count your budget will afford. A high 300 thread count will help in achieving that cuddle of care.
Cotton, Egyptian Cotton, Bamboo or Silk
Cotton is the most popular choice for sheets and bedding due to its breathability, comfort and affordability. Egyptian Cotton is considered to be the highest quality of cotton. As the name suggests it is grown exclusively in Egypt. What makes it special is that the fibres are longer and smaller in diameter than regular cotton and therefore produce a superior feel to bedding. Bamboo has moisture-wicking properties that help keep sleepers cool at night and it has natural hypoallergenic properties. Bamboo is a more recent introduction to the bedding market and is considered to be an eco-friendly option which is a lovely touch when gifting.
Cotton Sateen or Cotton Percale
Sateen or percale is the way the threads are woven. Sateen threads skip over some threads whereas percale uses a one-over, one-under weave. Sateen gives a soft and silky-smooth feel to the skin. Percale feels just as fabulous but is lighter, and crisp and the breathable fabric is perfect for warmer climates.
