The best thing to invest in this season is a smartwatch or a fitness band that can track your steps, calorie intake, sleep duration, etc, and can be really useful for people who lead extremely busy and stressful work lives as it can bring them the realisation that they need to pay attention to their bodies and health.
Though the function can be performed by a smartwatch or a fitness band, it can be rather uncomfortable to wear these to bed. In that case, you can gift your loved ones the gift of a sound sleep by gifting them a sleep tracker that can just slip between their mattress and record the time and duration of sleep that they had, and display the results on their phone the next morning. How convenient!
