It's not a bed of roses

Remember the story of the princess and the pea - that poppie who, despite a bajillion mattresses, still could feel the pea beneath her?

And what exactly is the moral of that fairytale even? Always get an orthopaedic mattress?

If you're in the market for beds, there are a lot to choose from.

You've got the 80s ultra-cool waterbeds - which are probably really bad for your back.

Bunk beds are cool and nostalgic and leave so much room for activities.

You could skip a bed frame and just put the mattress on the floor if you'd like to be a human red flag.

But what about your best friend, your dog? They deserve to feel like a princess, too.

How about getting your fluffy companion this deal on a SnuggleSack Round Shaggy Plush Pet Bed.
