I was sent an eLuxury mattress for review. There are affiliate links in this post. All opinions are my own.
My dad was 46 when I was born, and he retired at 62, when I was in 11th grade. He’s always been a pretty simple person, but as he’s gotten older I’ve found it harder and harder to come up with gift ideas for him. He likes to fish, but he has a handful of fishing poles and a boat. He’s never been one for fancy equipment. He likes to wear his clothes until they fall apart. He enjoys keeping a nice lawn but he has a nice mower and buys flowers to plant in the spring. He watches tv, listens to country music and likes to ride his golf cart around his property. He’s never owned a computer. He still doesn’t own a cell phone. He tried a flip phone a couple years back but went back to his landline after a few months. There isn’t much room to find fun, exciting or unique gifts for him that he will regularly use. However, he isn’t always the best at replacing things for himself, even when they are basic needs. As I mentioned, he will wear his clothing out so sometimes I get him new clothing and other practical gifts that he won’t buy for himself.
A Mattress For Seniors
If you know a senior like this, their mattress might be really old. My dad’s was! For years my dad worked in factories and he hurt his back many times. He’s had a harder time getting good sleep the last year or so. While nobody can turn back the clock and fix his bad back, I started wondering if there was a best mattress for back pain. When talking about his old mattress, he explained that it being firm and having springs meant it dug into him in certain spots. I thought going with a springless mattress would be a better option.
So I thought the eLuxury 10 Inch Gel Memory Foam Mattress would be perfect for him. He’s always “slept warm” and the premium eLux gel memory foam mattress provides cooling. It has no springs, it is made in the United States and it is a full 10″ thick. It’s an inch or so thicker than his old mattress was! It even comes with a 10-year full coverage warranty.
How the eLuxury gel foam mattress comes out of the box.
My dad hadn’t heard of these “mattress in a box” type mattresses so when the box came and the mattress was vacuum sealed, I think he thought it was going to be a really thin, crappy mattress – more like a mattress pad. Or maybe he was expecting an air mattress because he asked if it ‘inflates’. He was amazed at how big it was once we let air get to it!
How the eLuxury gel form mattress looks after cutting the roll.
The eLuxury gel foam mattress once completely unwrapped. Notice both ends of the mattress were curling up a bit? That was from being rolled up in the box. It corrected itself to being flatter after a few days. My dad opted to use his eLuxury mattress on top of his old boxspring. However, this mattress can be used on a platform bed frame without a box spring if you prefer.
The top cover of the mattress is made with bamboo which is incredibly soft. His old mattress would feel terrible to lay on without a sheet. This is softer than most bed sheets! He laid down on the bed before we got it made and said ‘ahhh’. It is significantly softer than his old mattress and he felt like it formed right to him. I called him a couple of days later to ask if it was a good mattress for bad back, or how it was working for him in general. Hmatte said he was sleeping great! Even though it was significantly different from his old mattress, his body didn’t need to do any adjusting, it was comfortable to him from the first night. With his old mattress, he used a memory foam topper but he said he doesn’t need it with this mattress at all because this is so comfortable on its own, so he is passing down his memory foam topper to a family member to use.
While my dad has been really happy with his new gel foam mattress, I understand that others may be hesitant to buy a bed that they haven’t tried out. That’s why I love how eLuxury offers a 120-night risk-free guarantee. You can have the mattress delivered to your door for *weeks* before deciding whether to fully commit to it or not. If it’s not for you, you can get a full refund if you (or the loved one you gift it to!) aren’t fully satisfied with the mattress.
If you don’t want to pay for the mattress all in one swoop, eLuxury works with Bread Payments so that you can make monthly payments until it is paid off.
Deal alert: Right now you can get FREE Pillows, Sheets, and Mattress Protector with ANY Mattress Purchase!
