What You Need at Your Nightstand and How to Arrange it

Secondly, you will most probably need water, but the glass always looks more sophisticated than a plastic bottle. So when you are about to go to bed, just grab a glass full of water and leave it there. Continuing with the essentials, one cannot skip the books. Everybody likes them, or at least has to, and they are just adorable. What is even greater is the fact that they look really sassy and if you arrange them nicely and appropriately they will bring a nice spirit to the entire room. The most common things found on every night table are the gadgets. And to be honest, their place is indeed not there. Better leave them in another room or at least not that close to you, while you are in the bed. Neither it is healthy for you, nor it is nice to start and end your day with Facebook.
