When you find that special someone, it's easy to say "I do." The challenge follows the honeymoon when you are faced with the task of merging two households into one cozy abode. A few practical products can help you create your ideal home that incorporates both personalities.

1. Mattress

The right mattress is crucial to a good night's sleep. Select a mattress together to ensure the highest level of comfort for the both of you. Memory foam varieties are especially favorable for couples as they absorb movement.

4. Sheet Set

Comfy sheets can take your bed to the next level. For your comfort, select bedding that best suits each season. For cooler temperatures, heavy fabrics such as flannel will keep you toasty through the winter. When warmer weather rolls in, consider thinner sheets made from a lightweight material such as jersey.

5. Pillows

Whether you prefer cushiony comfort or firm support, you can indulge in quality pillows that will have you counting sheep in no time. As for the suitcases, monogrammed His and Her designs would add charm to any room.
