This post is brought to you by Hulltex, maker of the Hullo Pillow.
The challenge: You want to commemorate Valentine’s Day by getting your significant other something they don’t already have. But like so many people, you find yourself poring over product reviews, wondering which new shiny thing your loved one wants or could use but doesn’t already have.
Which version of the iPhone do they have again? Was that a PlayStation 3 or 4, or maybe an Xbox One, and are they more into RPG games or RTSs? Pretty sure they already have a lot of thumb drives…
Trying to keep up with the cresting wave of technology is tiring enough without having to remind someone that you care. Maybe it’s time to give it a rest, trying something that’s actually good for them, that won’t be obsolete come the next Apple unveiling, and doesn’t even need batteries? Allow us to introduce the Hullo buckwheat pillow.
A pillow, you ask? Yes. A pillow. An amazing pillow.
If you think your beaux loves their tech, ask them how they like a good night’s sleep. After all, a pillow is one of the few things we use as much as our phone or computer. And unlike most Apple products, the Hullo is nice and thick and fluffy enough to rest your head on. Also unlike most electronics, these are made right here in the U S of A, instead of some factory in China, so your partner can rest easy in more ways than one. Made from renewably sourced fibers and buckwheat husks, there’s no waste and, what’s more, you never have to charge the thing.
Rather than feathers or foam or something even stranger to lay an ear on at night, Hullo is filled with tiny, flexible little husks of buckwheat. They create an ideal amount of give, conforming to the contours of the neck while holding channels for air to breathe through.
The hulls last about a decade before flattening out and needing to be replaced (which Hullo makes sure is easy and cheap), so this is gift that definitely dodges the obsolescence curve. Sure, it’s the opposite of new and high tech, but as the continuation of a centuries-old practice, it’s pretty much just as cool. And no one ever complained that their pillow was too comfortable.
It’s also unique. Not many people know about the benefits of buckweat (hello, trendsetters). And a night spent sleeping on these all-natural pillows is a one-of-a-kind experience, accompanied by a gentle rustle and a distinct texture that quickly becomes comfortingly familiar. No “magical” features, no USB port. Just a night of supportive, comfortable rest.
This is your chance to skip the fancy gadgets and latest crazes when choosing the right gift for your valentine. Instead, go for something that’s useful and healthy, environmentally friendly, American-made and 100 percent organic. You won’t find anything matching that description on the Apple store. You’re also unlikely to find something that’s such a good bargain — right now you can get one of Hullo’s amazing buckwheat pillows for as low as $59. They come in small, standard and king sizes, with fast and free shipping within the United States.
Give Hullo a try, and avoid the headache of gift shopping with something that’s guaranteed to please.
