    1. A mini travel pillow because you never know when the urge to nap will hit full force.


    Promising review: "A dream at home and on the road. I frequently sleep on my hands, only to wake up to an uncomfortable dead arm. This solves that problem, as it moves with my head and hands, keeping me comfortable no matter which way I turn. Very useful for long flights and car rides, as it fits in a carry-on bag and is highly portable." —Sean Simoneau

    Get it from Amazon for $30 (available in three colors).

    2. Or maybe a sweatshirt hoodie when you need a bit of coverage to prevent people from striking up conversation on public transportation.


    Promising review: "Best idea I had to buy this. It blocks out the light on flights and car rides. It fits as tight as you wish around your neck by adjusting the hood ropes. Felt extremely comfortable although may look a little silly. Slept over five hours on an international flight." —Renee

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95 (available in five colors).

    3. Eye drops for those days when your eyes feel like literal sandpaper from staring at your laptop or phone screen for too long.


    These drops will lubricate your eyes, relieving burning. It can protect your eyes for up to 10 hours.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    4. Eye masks to target dark circles and puffiness so Susan The Coworker can never again backhandedly ask, "OMG, are you sick? You look so tired!"

    Promising review: "I always have bags under my eyes mostly from no sleep and staying home with small children all day. These gold eye masks are so soft and hydrating. I absolutely love them! They make my under eyes so smooth and bright. They are so easy to use and with so many in the pack, it is a great value as well!" —Amazon Customer

    Get 15 pairs from Amazon for $17.48.

    5. A caffeinated energy bar if you prefer the taste of chocolate over coffee to zap you awake.


    One bar is equivalent to drinking one cup of coffee, and can be stored in your desk drawer or easily carried when on-the-go.

    Get a pack of 12 from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four flavors).

    6. Or refreshing and energizing mints you can pop for a burst of renewed focus. They're sugar-free and leave your breath smelling minty fresh.

    Promising review: "I tried both flavors. The spearmint is a strong flavor whereas the wintergreen is milder. Regardless of the flavor, they both work! These mints are more convenient, require no water, are easy to carry, and have a formula that works! I get up every morning at 5:30 a.m., and pop one mint. It gets me through my morning exercise routine and stressful 45 minute drive to work. It's perfect." —Rajiv

    Get them from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in five flavor and three sizes), or check out coffee-flavored gum here.

    7. But if you are dedicated to java, then this mug will validate all the things you decided not to do and all the places you decided not to go to because you were exhausted.

    This mug is microwave- and dishwasher-safe (top-rack only).

    Get it from Mugsby on Etsy for $10.99+ (available in three sizes and three styles).

    8. Or try this insulated mug to keep your precious brew hot or cold for hours upon hours.

    Promising review: "Most mornings because I’m running around trying to get everything taken care of before going to work, I might brew a cup of coffee, but not get to it for quite a while. And of course once I’m at work, the sips of coffee I get are few and far between! So I needed a mug that would keep it hot for a good amount of time. Thankfully this mug does the job. I like the feel and look of it as well. It cleans up really easily, hand-washing or putting it in the dishwasher. For me, it has been a great buy." —Melissa Mitchell

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 11 colors).

    9. A French press that'll brew said coffee and make you feel immensely better until you need your next cup.


    Promising review: "This French press works perfectly for me. I'm a coffee snob and just can't drink the coffee provided at work. The coffee made in the press is so delicious. It specifies in the product description that it makes a 12-ounce cup, and that is accurate. This press is insanely cute and takes up very little space when stored in my desk drawer. The glass is plenty thick and the handle stays on secured. The strainer prevents any grounds from pouring into my cup." —LN8182

    Get a 12-ounce press from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in two colors and four sizes).

    10. A lavender bath salt so you can soak your evening away after a long day of being, you guessed it, very tired!


    Promising review: "I've tried a lot of different bath salts, and these are about as perfect as bath salts can be! They're a fine grain that dissolves quickly with no gritty residue left in the tub, and the scent is lovely. Just a handful or two is enough to perfectly scent the water, which makes these more of a bargain than some other brands. Great purchase; I'll definitely buy again!" —Julie

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49+ (available in larger sizes).

    11. And to be totally comfortable while you turn into a prune, this bath pillow will provide the perfect place to rest your head.


    Promising review: "We've tried a variety of bath pillows in our household and this has been the most comfortable. We only have a small ledge between the top of the tub and the back of the shower wall, but the extra pillow to go over the ledge makes a huge difference in comfort. It also isn't getting mildewy like others we've had. This one stays clean. I would recommend over other bath pillows." —Shawkins

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in two styles).

    12. An enamel pin for showcasing exactly how you're feeling so everyone knows right away to back off and not bombard you with questions the moment you walk into work.

    Get it from Little Goat Paper Co on Etsy for $10.

    13. A diffuser to disperse the aroma of eucalyptus or tea tree once you've gotten home and can properly relax from that 8+ hour work day.


    This diffuser can turn seven different colors and features a safety auto-switch in case the water runs out to prevent overheating. On top of being a diffuser, it also functions as a humidifier to improve air quality.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in three colors).

    14. And to be paired with that diffuser, this essential oil pack includes six different scents to mix and match.

    This set features lemongrass for calmness and clarity, peppermint for concentration and clear thinking, orange for optimism and peace, lavender for cognitive functions and alertness, eucalyptus for optimism and concentration, and tea tree for mental strength and calmness.

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99.

    15. A weighted blanket that literally mimics the weight of a hug to give you a little TLC when you feel incredibly drained.

    Promising review: "This blanket does everything exactly as advertised. I got it for my husband's birthday. He suffers from occasional anxiety and often slept with pillows on his body. I debated for a while as it's not cheap, but it is WORTH the price. Thanks to the quilting, the weights don't shift around. It conforms perfectly to the body." —MKPersisted

    Get it from Amazon for $63.50+ (available in 12 sizes/weights and seven styles).

    16. A Mario Badescu face spray for mid-day hydration to help soothe tight, dry, and tired skin.

    @mariobadescu via Instagram: @

    Promising review: "I have been using the rosewater spray religiously every day and I love it. I wanted to try the cucumber spray since I also heard good things about it, and I needed to replenish my rosewater spray. I have to admit that I think I might like the cucumber spray better! It feels gentler and more refreshing, and cooling. Also pro tip: You can use these to spray your Beautyblenders for makeup application." —Katie

    Get it from Amazon for $7+ (available in five sizes).

    17. Comfy leggings to make the transition from outside world to couch seamless.

    These were also our low-price pick for the best leggings on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Get them from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in 19 colors and sizes XS—2XL).

    18. A white noise machine because when you desperately need a good night's sleep, you definitely don't want your roommate's jam sesh to the ASIB album to keep you awake. Even though that album is fantastic, you need your sleep.


    Promising review: "I would give this product 16 stars if I could. We moved into our new home on the very same day the house next to ours decided to have a raging party. My husband and I sat in our bed the night we moved in, listening to girls shrieking outside our window and bottles smashing, wondering if we had just made the biggest mistake of our lives. I turned this little sound machine on, and I'm not kidding — it drowned out EVERYTHING. The slamming doors, the giggling, yelling, talking, glasses breaking, everything. I had never been so grateful. Thankfully, the raging parties are not a normal thing, but this sound machine still works wonders on those noisier nights." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $44.95+ (available in four colors).

    19. Or an Amazon Alexa for personalized white noise when you're tired of listening to static.


    I have an Alexa, and trust me, the device can do a lot. One feature that I consider to be particularly cool is the personalization of white noise. You can do this a few ways: you can select different playlists from Spotify or Amazon Prime Music, or you can enable Alexa's ambient noise skills. Once that skill is activated, you'll have the option to play 12 different noises, ranging from babbling brook to train.

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (originally $99.99, available in four colors).

    20. And to supplement that white noise machine, hang these blackout curtains in your bedroom so you never have to deal with the threat of sunlight creeping in to disturb your much-needed slumber.


    Read our full review of the blackout curtains here!

    Get them from Amazon for $20.49+ (available in three sizes and 22 colors).

    21. A tee to accurately express how you feel at any given moment.

    The shirts come in unisex sizes!

    Get it from Tee Me Please on Etsy for $20+ (available in 10 colors and sizes XS—3XL).

    22. A Crock-Pot so you can make delicious food with practically zero effort. No one has time to meal prep when they need to catch up on sleep.


    I've owned a Crock-Pot for quite a while now and absolutely love it. It's so easy to use and makes the most delicious meals. This past weekend I made chili since the temperatures outside are beyond chilly. Once you buy your ingredients, you really just dump everything in and set your timer. Some recipes call for slight prep work, but it's truly minimal. This Crock-Pot has a countdown clock so you can see exactly how much time is left for your meal. You can cook on high or low (your recipe will instruct you which), and once that cook time is over, the Crock-Pot will switch to "keep warm." It's that easy.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.49+ (available in six sizes).

    23. A makeup remover cloth that only needs water to lazily remove everything at the end of a long day. No more sleeping in last night's makeup!

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Check out our full review of the Makeup Eraser here! It was also selected as our mid-price pick for the best makeup removers on BuzzFeed Reviews.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    24. Noise canceling headphones ideal for drowning out the busy, and often annoying, sounds of commuting. You're already tired, you might as well listen to some of your favorite tracks before your day fully starts.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    These were chosen as out low-price pick for the best noise-cancelling headphones on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Get them from Amazon for $99.

    25. A skin retoucher from Giorgio Armani designed to erase dark circles and any skin imperfections.


    I use this retoucher and really adore it. I feel like it's the best concealer I own, and have used it multiple times to cover up dark circles and breakouts possibly caused from lack of sleep. It's smooth, doesn't look heavy when it's on, and doesn't cake even after hours of wear. It fully covers up any redness or uneven skin tone.

    Get it from Sephora for $40 (available in six tones).

    26. A temperature-regulating comforter for the hot sleeper who's losing minutes because they are TOO BUSY SWEATING!!!! This resonates with me personally, so I get very excited.


    This comforter is moisture-wicking, made from cotton, and machine-washable.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line sold exclusively at Macy's for $175+ (available in twin—king).

    27. A microwave pasta cooker so you can enjoy a comfort meal without having to wait for water to boil. Also less effort = best effort.


    Promising review: "I love to make pasta, but hate boiling a giant pot of water on the stove just to cook it. Now, I prepare it all the time; this makes it so fast and easy! It is great for making pasta salad in the summer, when I don't want to have to turn on the stove, and is great for camping as well. I love this so much, I actually purchased one for my stepdaughter and my best friend as well. Well-made and dishwasher-safe, I have used mine for well over a year and it is still in perfect condition. Never want to be without this again!" —SpikeysMommy

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    28. A foot massager that'll help bring relief to aching feet since chances are you've been up and about for way too long.

    It even has a heat feature and the option of a protection plan! It has six massage heads, three levels for height, and an easy access power button. You can keep it at home or bring it to your office. Need I say more??

    Promising review: "Not only is this seller amazing for customer service and for having an 18-month protection policy, but this is a great product! The heating function is nice, and the feeling of the machine itself is really good for releasing tension in my feet. I have really enjoyed this product, and am glad it has such great seller backing." —Sistoria

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in two styles).

    29. Or a back massager with six speeds, six nodes, and six modes. This device will provide a deep tissue massage to restore tired muscles. Yes, please!


    This massager can also work on your legs, feet, and neck. The battery can last up to 100 minutes, and has an indicator light to let you know when it needs to be recharged. The motor also has a safety feature to prevent overheating.

    Promising review: "So far, so good. I read other reviews and opted to pick this massager specifically because it's wireless. The attachments are really easy to screw off and on. It's a bit heavy, but honestly, that's what you need if you are massaging your own back or legs. The extra weight prevents you from having to use your own strength to bear down, which would cause you to tense up too much to get any benefit if you were massaging your back. The foot massager attachment looked a bit intimidating, but it feels great." —Mike

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    30. A book all about what to do and eat for increased energy and more restful sleep.

    Urban Outiftters

    This book is a twofer, meaning one half has recipes while the other has DIY treatments for health and beauty. All you have to do is flip the book over to go between sections.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+, Urban Outfitters for $16.95, Barnes & Noble for $10.99+, a local bookseller through IndieBound, or find a copy at your local library.

    31. A fleece robe to change into the minute you get home and no longer have to wear (ick) pants.


    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in 26 styles and sizes S—XL).

    32. And finally, a Tuft & Needle pillow because when you're this damn tired, you deserve to come home to a high quality pillow.
