  • How To Buy Bed Linen For A Couple With Different Tastes

    Published on November 30, 2021

    The festive season is on in full swing. Though the boss of all festivals, Diwali, has come and gone, we are still headed towards Christmas and New Year. And what better way to bookend the year 2021 than with presents for your closest friends?

    Except, your closest friends are a couple with completely diverse tastes. One has an extroverted personality, while the other is a homebody. One likes bold colours and cheesy holiday movies, the other is more sedate in their choice of colours, clothing, books and films. Gifting them with a couples’ gift is always a task – and it doesn’t become any easier when you decide to gift them with online bedsheets.

    Go For a Middle Ground

    If one half of the couple is into muted colours while the other like blazing warm colours like orange, then it can become a little problematic picking out bedsheets online that might satisfy one but alienate the other. Ditto for one half of the equation liking geometric prints or plain bedsheets, with the other liking floral or ethnic motifs exclusively. The problem is further compounded if one prefers fitted bedsheets while the other likes flat cotton bed sheets. Then there is the question of preferred material as well.

    When the couple has such contrasting tastes, you will have no choice but to opt for a safe middle ground that makes for a good gift for both. We suggest choosing luxury cotton designer bedsheets from premium brands, in a colour that appeals to both and in a design that is neither overstated nor too staid. Choose a double bedsheet for their bed, unless they sleep on twin beds. In the latter case, single bedsheets for each person are better and easier to buy – you can choose the colour and pattern that the end user is most likely to appreciate.

    Contrast, Within Reason

    The easiest thing to do is buy a bedsheet and dohar/comforter set in twos, one each that pleases the receiver. But if you would rather give only one bedding set as a gift to the couple, then you will have to offer a contrast between the different bed linen but within reason.

    For example, you can choose a bedsheet with a bold colour and design while buying a dohar or comforter in a muted shade. You can even buy two single comforters in colours and designs that they will like. Complete the set with two different bed runners, one for each type of user. But do contrast the bed linen in a way that it does not jar upon the design sensibilities of both the users and their bedroom.

    Singles might be a better idea for blankets. Some couples do not prefer using the same double comforter or dohar, especially if one is a restless sleeper likely to toss and turn in the night. Some people snore in their sleep, which prompts their partner to take their blanket and sleep elsewhere for the rest of the night. Or one might be a ‘blanket puller’ – this person takes the entire blanket away when they turn on their side in bed, thus leaving the other suddenly exposed in their sleep. But do make certain that the couple uses single blankets before gifting them with single dohars or comforters.

    How To Buy Bed Linen Online

    Buying comforters and bedsheets online is one of the easiest tasks. You get a lot of variety from online bedsheet stores, whether you want a single or double variant. Not to mention the range of colours, designs and material

    We recommend buying designer bedsheets from premium bed linen brands online. They make for great gifts and last for several years

    Always choose 100% cotton bedsheets, whether you buy for yourself or as a gift for others. Cotton is the best material for bed linen. It does not overheat, it is easy to clean and maintain, and lasts for years if washed regularly in cold water and a good quality soap. If the manufacturer lists any unique wash and care attributes, be sure to pass these on to the giftees when you send them the bedding online

    We also recommend buying anti-viral and air purifying bedsheets as gifts. The anti-viral variant can kill up over 99% of infectious germs and viruses, including the dreaded Coronavirus. Thus, they protect you as you sleep. The air purifying bedsheets trap harmful greenhouse gases and keep their immediate environment clear from harmful pollutant gases that would unwittingly breathe while asleep. These are the most thoughtful presents, showing the receiver that you care about their good health and wellbeing.
