What’s crucial for a getting a good night’s sleep? For many, a good pillow is key, as a bad one can leave you tossing and turning all night trying to get comfortable and leave you with a crick in your neck the next morning. If you need a little extra support, a neck pillow can be just the addition you need.

But don’t settle for just any old, everyday neck pillow. Get one with flare and style… and shrimp!

It’d probably also make a great gag gift for birthdays, weddings, or for people with shrimp allergies.
