Sound asleep pillow

Anyone who's ever tried using headphones in bed on will know it doesn't make for particularly restful dozing.

 We found this great gadget for singers, students and music lovers alike: a pillow with a built in speaker that connects directly to an MP3 player - absolutely ideal for anyone who's familiarising themselves with the accompaniment or vocal line of a song. What a great idea!

We think this little something for the bedroom would make the perfect valentines gift for the special singer or music lover in your life (along with an accompaniment MP3 Gift Voucher, of course).
