As much as some of us might resist it, Valentine's Day is coming.
If you're out of ideas for a sweet gift for your significant other, take my genius advice. What does every single person on this planet love? Sleeping. So just get something sleep-related! Such as a pillow that stops your arm from getting numb.
Previous scientific research has found that cuddling has several benefits on all aspects of your health. Body, mind, and soul included.
But how can you reap the benefits of spooning if you lose all feeling in your "big spoon" arm? One couple had this exact issue and that's why they came up with The Coodle Pillow.
People seem to be keen to try out the new invention. Especially since you don't really need to have a partner to share it with. You can keep it all to yourself and just use it solo.
For some reason, there's always been this misconception that women like cuddling more than men.In fact, Healthline says it's actually the vice versa: men are more into spooning and snuggling up than women.
Cuddling has many benefits.

There are so many ways to cuddle.Healthline suggests.
But spooning is the classic one.
So cuddling is quite a treat to your body and soul.But it's not as easy to find the most comfortable position right away without cutting off circulation to some part of your body.
The "big spoon" is the one to always deal with their arm getting numb after a few minutes of acting as a pillow for the "little spoon."

And they have a relatable, yet romantic, story behind it."They didn't have much individually, but together they had each other and the inspirations that come with young love," their story begins on the pillow's official website.
"He was a creative young man with a college degree in industrial arts."
"It was not a surprise to anyone when this enterprising young man came up with a new kind of pillow."
He was also the one to come up with the name "Coodle" and acquire a patent from the United States Patent Office.
They used the money they made to get married in a simple ceremony.
The pillow has an arched form which takes the weight off the "big spoon's" arm.
The pillow is made of high-quality, U.S.-made foam.
As the name suggests, the pillow was made with couples in mind.
The website says it's also great to bring on camping trips.
People seem to be excited about the new invention.
Mr. J said, "Hopefully the same crowd will release something that stops people from taking all of the bed too."

As great as the pillow is, it doesn't solve all of the problems that come up while spooning.
