My birthday and my husband's birthday are about two weeks apart and we often buy joint presents. This year e chose a new mattress and it arrived this evening. I ordered the queen mattress online and it arrived in a box only a little bigger than my nightstand. It was vacuum packed inside and was very exciting to open! We are very hopeful that we will like this new mattress and will be able to get rid of our nearly twelve year old one that is leaning against the wall!
