Holiday Gift Guide 2017: Give the Gift of a Good Night's Sleep When You Surprise Them with a New Nectar Memory Foam Mattress -- Mattress Includes Full Comfort Guarantee and Forever Warranty (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent a sample from the vendor in exchange for an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.



With the holidays fast approaching, have you started going crazy thinking about your shopping lists?  Have you checked your lists like Santa does to make sure you have everyone on the list, and jot down ideas next to their name for gifts?  Or, has your significant other asked you what you want for the holidays?  Has a new mattress crossed your mind?  Probably not, especially with people eagerly awaiting Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales.  You don't usually see mattresses in the deals.  But, when you think about it a mattress is a great gift idea, as everyone needs a good night's sleep each night, and if your mattress is not up to par, you can experience back and neck issues, find yourself tossing and turning through the night trying to get a comfortable spot, thus loosing precious hours of sleep.  And, with the holidays fast approaching, sleep will be key if you plan to get everything done for the holidays, so that everything looks effortless. You know what I am talking about..moms are supposed to do everything -- the meal, shopping and wrapping gifts, and everything in between, so that everyone has a great holiday.  But, with all the running around you will be doing, wouldn't it be nice to lay down at night in a comfortable bed?

How long have you had your current mattress?  Do you know how long an average mattress lasts before you should replace it.  I never really gave replacing a mattress a thought before kids, unless the mattress wasn't comfy anymore, or I noticed a dip in it from the mattress wearing out.  It wasn't until I did research online earlier this year due to back and leg issues I was having, that I started thinking about my mattress not helping the situation.  I found that most mattresses only last about 5-6 year, even though they may carry a longer warranty.  Because we sleep in our bed, the kids play and jump around it, etc., your mattress really takes a beating.  It wasn't meant to last forever. But, with the prices we pay for mattresses nowadays we all wish they will last a long time, as they can cost a fortune for a good mattress that feels comfortable to you.  

My husband and I bought our last mattress back in 2007 when we moved from MA to CT.  We spent over $2000 on the name brand mattress because we let ourselves get sold on the mattress while out at a mattress store.  Ugh, I am still kicking myself about the purchase, as it was a headache from the start.  I don't know about you, but buying a mattress is up there with buying a car, in regards to having to deal with sales people.  I always hate walking into furniture stores as they have their sales team waiting for you at the door, and then you walk a few steps in and have someone following you around before they pounce and ask if you need any help, hoping to make a sale.  Not my favorite thing to do.  Thankfully I don't have to deal with pushy sales people when it comes to buying mattresses as you can order them online and have them shipped right to your door.  But, with so many online retailers and brands online, which one is the best one to go with, seeing that you can't go in person to try them out for yourself.  I have heard horror stories from friends who bought mattresses online and when they arrived they had a chemical smell that never went away, the mattress was so firm they couldn't sleep on it, or the mattress came damaged...and all these issues were so hard to rectify.  So, when it came time to move my girls from their twin beds to a big girl bed (partly because we find ourselves ending up in their beds in the night, and a twin bed is not comfortable for an adult and child who loves to do 360 degree spins through the night), I spent countless hours online researching and reading reviews about the best mattress out there.  Time and again I kept seeing Nectar mattresses raved about by people.  


I couldn't get over how Nectar was rated #1 by reviewers and acknowledged as “the best mattress money can buy” by customers, Nectar is a better bed at the best price. Everyone left glowing reviews about how comfortable these mattresses were, and how they arrived at their door and within 24 hours they were getting a great night's sleep -- something they had been missing out on for so long. 

I made a point to note Nectar for mattresses for the girls, but first I wanted to find the right full size bed frame for them.  Last month, when I found the bed frames for the girls, I was contacted by the folks at Nectar and asked to review a mattress.  I jumped at the opportunity as I was eager to get to try their memory foam mattresses firsthand.  I had to decide if I wanted to get a mattress for one of the girls, or one for my husband and I.  With continued back issues, I decided that it was time for us to replace our 10 year old mattress.  And, I am so glad I did something for myself for once, as I have been enjoying the best night's sleep each and every night I lay my head down on the Nectar pillow (we received 2 with the queen size mattress we were sent to review), which is included with the mattress. Before I go on about how great this mattress is, I wanted to share some photos and videos I took.  It is like a little unveiling in case you were curious about how you get a mattress delivered to your door. It really is a neat thing to see a mattress expand and become full size in a matter of minutes.

First, this is how the mattress arrives at your door -- in this blue wrapping...

As you can see once you remove the blue packaging , the mattress is enclosed in a zipper bag show in white...

It take a little bit of maneuvering to remove the blue wrapping, but this was good and it keep the elements away from the actual mattress in the zipper bag.

Once you remove the blue wrapping, you are left with this...

The blue handles above are great to have in case you have to carry the mattress to another floor or room in the house.  We were going to take the blue packaging off outside, but I wasn't sure how the mattress came, so I had my husband bring the whole thing as is in the house.  But, if you needed to, you could remove the blue wrapping and then use these handles to easily carry and transport the mattress to where you want it.

Now, the fun part, removing the bag to expose the mattress, which has been vacuum sealed in plastic...

Nectar has the whole unpacking thing thought out as they include the little tool shown below to cut the plastic to expose and let the mattress expand...

Be sure to read the instructions above and have the mattress flipped to the right side, so that when you tear into the plastic, you aren't having the mattress flop open upside down.  Even though our floor was clean, I had my husband open the mattress and lay it on the plastic wrapping that it came in.  I didn't want any dust to get on it while it expanded overnight. The instructions said to give it up to 24 hours to expand to full size.  And, if you smelled a chemical smell from it being in the packaging, that this would dissipate over the course of a few days.  We didn't notice a smell, which I was happy about, as like I mentioned above other friends who ordered mattresses and had them delivered through the mail, complained of a chemical smell -- not from Nectar mattresses, but from other so-called name brand mattress companies.

Here is my husband starting to tear into the plastic...

I captured the mattress unveiling as I called it on video.  You will here me talking about the Nectar warranty, that you don't get with other mattresses on the market.  You can learn more about their forever warranty by visiting the Nectar website Here is the video of the mattress expanding. I have to say it was really cool to see it go from this rolled up mattress into a fully expanded queen bed in a matter of minutes..

 And, here is more about the Forever Warranty...

We followed the instructions and let the mattress and two pillows which came with the mattress expand over a 24 hour period.  My daughters were so eager to see the new mattress and try it out that my youngest, Bella, woke at 5 AM to be the first to lay on it.  Here is the video I took of her telling me how comfortable it is and how she gives the Nectar mattress 2 thumbs up. :-)

She wouldn't get up off the mattress and kept telling me to snap photos so you could see just how comfy it was.  Two thumbs up comfy she kept saying. :-)

Don't mind Bella's bed head :-)  She was all smiles as she laid on the new mattress.  

Look how full this memory foam mattress is... 
You would never think it came rolled up like it did.  

Bella finally let me try out the mattress and I could see why she was giving it two thumbs up and saying it was comfy, as it really was.  I have owned a handful of mattresses in my day and can say hands down that this one is the most comfortable.  Even though it is a memory foam mattress, like my old mattress was, you don't sink deep into it.  Instead, it is like the mattress is hugging your body in the position you lay.  I usually start on my back at night and wind up laying on my side.  I found that with these shifts in the night, I wasn't dealing with a lumpy mattress that did conform to my new position in the bed. The Nectar mattress has really made a difference not only in my overall sleep experience, but my back is feeling so much better.  I was diagnosed with bulging and slipped discs in my L4 and L5 spine, and thanks to my new mattress from Nectar, I am getting some relief because of such a well-made mattress.

We have been sleeping on our new queen size Nectar mattress for over 3 weeks now, and I can report that I am still getting a restful night's sleep each and every night.  Now I look forward to going to bed as I know I will have a comfy bed waiting for me.  And, for the times I sit up in bed and blog or watch television, I can't get over the mattress.  Sitting or laying down, the mattress feels great.  And, my girls are loving it, too.  They will lay in my bed in the morning after getting up to watch one of their shows.  As they lay there, all I can hear is them raving about how great this bed feels and how they want one of these mattresses for themselves.  I guess Santa will be surprising the girls with new Nectar mattresses along with their new bed frames this Christmas. And, the prices are amazing for the top-quality mattress you get, along with the unprecedented forever warranty.  


Prices above include...



Want to compare Nectar mattresses to other top mattress brands? Then, head on over to Nectar and see how their mattress stacks up against the other brands -

I could go on and on raving about just great the Nectar mattress was that I was sent to review.  But, instead, why not give it a try for yourself.  You can do a home trial with the bed.  Try it out and if some any reason you are not satisfied with the mattress, you can return it for a full refund.  

They even offer no hassle pickups. Try saying that about other mattress companies you have dealt with in the past.  With a Forever Warranty and a home trial offer, there is no reason not to give Nectar a try today.  Like I said, the holidays are fast approaching, and why do something different this year, and gift yourself or someone you love with a good night's sleep.  Once you lay down on your new Nectar mattress you will see why Nectar is rated #1 by reviewers and acknowledged as “the best mattress money can buy” by customers.  I can't stop raving about it to family and friends.  And, whenever someone comes to visit, I make a point to have them try out my new mattress. They all agree it is comfortable, and can't believe it came rolled up like it did.

So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to the Nectar website and place your order for a new mattress today.  Then, sit back and wait for it to be delivered right to your door.  Say goodbye to pushy sales people at the mattress store, and hello to your new favorite mattress brand, Nectar, as you fall peacefully asleep and get the best night's sleep you and your body have been craving.
