Sleep masks are a great aid for people who can’t fall asleep because of lights. They are great on a long flight or drive… well, so long as you are not the pilot or driver. At any rate, they don’t have to be a simple blind for putting over the eyes and can be a bit playful or fun, especially if you make them for your kids.
