Casper:
For those who prefer to spend Valentine's Day under the covers, Casper is the bedroom upgrade your relationship has been waiting for. More than a year in the making, Casper's new sheets and pillows are engineered to perfectly complement the Casper mattress and create the world's best sleep environment (www.casper.com).

The Universally Comfortable Mattress
The Casper mattress is a singular design, universally comfortable, available in all six standard sizes, backed by a 10 ­year full warranty and engineered by a former IDEO designer to achieve the ideal point of form meeting function. The patent pending sleep surface unites proprietary CertiPUR certified memory and latex foams — so a Casper sleeps cool, provides healthy bounce, and promotes ideal anatomic support.

Price: starting at $550

The Pillow That Stays Comfortable
The new Casper pillow was designed to be perfect for all sleepers. During the research and development process, Casper engineers' suspicions were confirmed: earmarking pillows for specific sleep positions is largely a marketing narrative because most sleepers move from position to position at night. The pillow's buoyant core and plush outer layer combine to support any sleep situation. Because of its minuscule, silky fill fibers — 1/20th the thickness of a human hair — Casper's double-layer pillow doesn't flatten when compressed. Its breathable percale cover enables heat and air to travel freely, keeping sleepers cool and comfortable.

Price: Standard $75 | King $85

Soft, Strong, Breathable Sheets
Given the well-documented fallacy of the importance of thread count, Casper focused instead on thread quality and weave techniques. The result is a sheet made with some of the longest cotton fibers in the world, grown on a farm in California. Extra-long staple Californian Supima cotton is four times stronger than the industry average, which is important in balancing softness and breathability with a weave and thread structure that maintains those benefits wash after wash. Each item in Casper's sheet set has been thoughtfully designed to solve annoying bedding issues. Helpful finishes ensure that Casper's fitted sheet is easy to fold, the duvet cover doesn't bunch, and the pillow stays in its pillowcase. Sheet sets are available in six standard sizes, and come in two color variations: white on white and white on signature Casper chambray gray.

Price:

Sheets – Twin $150 | Twin XL $160 | Full $170 | Queen $180 | King $200 | California King $200
Duvet Cover – Twin/Twin XL $120 | Full/Queen $140 | King/California King $160

Sugarfina:
Sugarfina is a love story itself. The idea for Sugarfina sprouted on Co-Founders, Rosie & Josh's third date, a screening of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. A simple question – “why should kids have all the fun?" – led them on a quest to create the ultimate candy store for grown-ups. Treat your loved ones with something sweet this Valentine's Day with luxury candy giftsets including Pucker Up, Love Bites, XOXO, You're My Sweetheart and more.
