    1. A travel pillow because you never know when the urge to nap will hit full force. Crafted from high-density memory foam, it'll provide full support while you're waiting to board your next flight. The outer sleeve can also be easily removed and washed!


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this product. It is extremely comfortable and made of high quality material. Definitely worth the extra money. I really like the velcro connection on the front that allows me to make the pillow nice and tight. It takes all the pressure off my neck and allows me to sleep on the airplane easily. As someone who has never been able to sleep on planes, logging nearly 12 hours on back to back trips has completely changed my life. I would highly recommend." β€”Patrick

    2. Or maybe a sweatshirt pillow hoodie when you need a bit of coverage to prevent people from striking up conversation on public transportation. The pillow can actually deflate so you can throw it into your bag when you step off the subway or bus.


    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." β€”Renee

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95 (available in five colors).

    3. Visine eye drops for those days when your eyeballs feel like literal sandpaper from staring at your laptop or phone screen for too long. The lubrication can instantly soothe burning eyes for up to 10 hours.


    Promising review: "This really helps!! My eyes have been so dry and tired with the winter air and staring at a screen all day. These drops have worked wonders!" β€”Abby Ebenhoe

    Get it from Amazon for $7.88+ (available in a pack of two).

    4. And! Blue-light blocking glasses so your eyes aren't absolutely killing you by the end of the work week if you do stare at screens too much. These will filter out harsh blue-light that may otherwise increase eye irritation and headaches.

    @zennioptical via Instagram / Via

    I wear blue-light blocking glasses and absolutely love them. I was experiencing headaches nearly every day and my eyes felt so strained by the time I got home. Once I started wearing my glasses, I felt such a relief by the end of the first week. My eyes weren't as tired and I didn't feel as much pain. Now since I've been wearing them for months, I've experienced very few headaches and minimal eye irritation.

    5. A pack of 16 Dermal Korea collagen sheet masks with Vitamin E to aid your skin's overall glow, elasticity, and tone. The pack consists of masks for different uses: brightening and clarifying, moisturizing and soothing, anti-aging, and line reduction.


    Promising review: "These masks are amazing!!! Having 'ice pick' scars left over from acne I was told that I'd have to pay for expensive laser therapy because the body can't produce enough collagen to heal deep scars. I've been using these masks for two months and I've seen SIGNIFICANT reduction in my scars. They are almost completely gone!" β€”Shaun

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in packs).

    And read what a BuzzFeeder writer has to say about these collagen sheet masks!

    6. Caffeinated mints you can pop for a burst of renewed focus. They contain 40mg of caffeine per mint, so two equals an eight-ounce energy drink or cup of coffee. They are super convenient for on-the-go use when you're in the middle of a long drive or are heading to the gym after work.

    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." β€”Rajiv

    Get 20 from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in five flavors and four sizes), or check out coffee-flavored gum.

    7. A mug that'll validate all the things you decided not to do and all the places you decided not to go to because you were exhausted. Plus you always look forward to your morning cup of java so you might as well have a beyond perfect mug to round out the experience.

    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. A Bodum French press to brew said necessary coffee and make you feel immensely better until you need your next cup. You don't need any paper filters or plastic coffee pods; just grounds and hot water will produce a delicious 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." β€”LN8182

    Get a 12-ounce press from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two colors and three sizes).

    9. A bag of lavender bath salt so you can soak your evening away after a long day of being, you guessed it, very tired! The lavender scent can induce sleepiness, while the sea salts can soothe aching muscles and soften skin., Amazon

    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!" β€”Julie

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

    10. And to be totally comfortable while you turn into a prune, this bath pillow will provide the perfect place to rest your head. It features TWO inches of padded foam and seven suction cups so this baby for SURE isn't slipping on you.


    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." β€”Shawkins

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

    11. An enamel pin, because yes you are hella tired, but you're still no slouch. You can display it on a jean jacket or backpack so everyone knows you're still 100% capable of getting your ~ish~ done.

    Get it from Punky Pins on Etsy for $10.18.

    12. And! A namas'tay in bed sticker so you can accurately display how you're feeling when you're in your 9 a.m. meeting. You may still have to present work, but at least your laptop gives everyone in the room some good insight into where you'd rather be.

    Get it from The BFF Shop on Etsy for $3.50.

    13. An essential oil 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. It's a great way to diffuse tension before bed, filling your bedroom with lavender or peppermint to clear your mind and put you at ease.

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

    Promising review: "It has been wonderful using this diffuser. It makes my bedroom smell wonderful and I have been sleeping much better. I have recently gotten into essential oils and this diffuser was a great choice. It has a large enough reservoir (500mL) that is lasts all night. You can use the soft light choices if you choose. It is easy to operate and it is also a cool mist humidifier. So far I am very pleased with this product." β€”Reese12

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

    14. And to be used with your new diffuser, an essential oil pack that includes six different scents to try depending on your mood: lemongrass, peppermint, orange, lavender, eucalyptus, and tea tree.

    The low down: lemongrass is for calmness and clarity, peppermint is for concentration and clear thinking, orange is for optimism and peace, lavender is for cognitive functions and alertness, eucalyptus is for optimism and concentration, and tea tree is for mental strength and calmness.

    Promising review: "I’m new to using essential oils and was very pleased with this set! I like having the variety of different oils in this package, I have infused each one at different times depending on what I want to focus on! A very handy chart comes with the oils to inform you of what each oil helps promote and helps relieve. Lavender has been my favorite, promoting tranquility and peace an relieving anxiety and stress! Love to diffuse these oils on my nightstand while sleeping!" β€”Nathan hoyle

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

    15. A Mario Badescu facial spray for mid-day hydration to help soothe tight, dry, and tired skin. With fragrant herbal extracts and rosewater, you'll look forward to this refreshing pick-me-up each and every day.

    @mariobadescu / Via Instagram: @

    Promising review: "I've always seen a lot of beauty gurus and makeup artists use this, but I never really felt the need to get it. I was using an organic rosewater mist before and loved the effects it had on my skin and it sparked my curiosity to try Mario Badescu's version. The smell is incredible, it moisturizes in a very light and subtle way, it doesn't have any sticky after feel, and it makes my skin look luminous and smell great. I use this after skin care and after makeup. I honestly feel like I use it too often, but that is just how pleasant it is. I'll be reordering this one and trying out the Green Tea one as well." β€”Selene

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

    16. Comfortable leggings to make the transition from couch to outside world possible and low-maintenance. Instead of throwing on a pair of jeans (yuck), you can stay cozy while running errands, picking up the kids from school, or heading to your afternoon class.

    Promising review: "I love these for hanging out, working out, walking the dog, running errands, sleeping, and more. Quality is almost comparable to my pricier Lululemon leggings, at a fraction of the cost. So comfy and I love the charcoal gray color I got. The little pocket is perfect for a key and/or an ID/credit card, and can even hold my iPhone 7 in a pinch. I’ll probably buy these in more colors, as they’re a great wardrobe staple, wash and wear nicely, and haven’t gotten thinner or see-through yet after a few months of regular wear." β€”J. Lee

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 38 colors and sizes XSβ€”2XL).

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

    17. A dual-speed white noise machine, because blocking out the sound of the human population to get a sound sleep (and therefore not be as tired) is vital. With this machine, you can fully control tone and volume for a personalized noise experience.

    Jeff Barron

    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 β€” 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." β€”Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $32.32+ (available in four colors).

    Also, check out our review of the Marpac Dohm white noise machine.

    18. 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.

    Promising review: "I bought the Alexa for my wife’s birthday a month ago and it has been used nonstop since then. The sound quality is comparable to much larger and more expensive stereo systems. We constantly use it to listen to music as it can be heard all throughout the bottom floor of the house. The voice recognition is great and we are able to ask and give Alexa commands from all over the house. A really cool feature that we have been using is the white noise feature while you sleep. We have a large coonhound that snores like a jackhammer and we have been getting better sleep using Alexa to block out the noise." β€”Luke

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (available in three colors).

    19. Insulated three-layer blackout curtains so you never have to deal with the threat of sunlight creeping in to disturb your much-needed slumber. They're also noise-reducing so if you live on a busy street, these are deff for you.


    Just something to keep in mind: the darker the color of the shade, the better light-blocking ability!

    Promising review: "I was incredibly hesitant to purchase these curtains for a couple of reasons. First, the price seemed too good to be true. They just arrived on my doorstep and I am so pleased with them, I immediately came to write a positive review! These curtains are SOLID! The material is a heavy weight and not the slightest bit see-through. The grommets are heavy pieces of hardware that will definitely hold up to lots of use. And as a bonus, they come with ties to hold them back when you're ready to let the light in. I wish I'd found these curtains years ago." β€”C&A Allen

    Get them from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in six sizes and 23 colors).

    20. 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 because you couldn't keep your eyes open long enough to remove your eyeliner and mascara.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "I love this eraser. I am terrible about being consistent with washing the makeup off of my face every night, standing at the sink splashing water all over the place. This thing is so convenient and I can use it while I sit on my couch. It, of course, takes some work work to actually get makeup off but so do makeup wipes. This, unlike makeup wipes, do not burn my skin or eyes. It's super soft and makes my skin feel great. I love how eco-friendly it is, too!" β€”Marisa

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    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.

    21. A six-quart Crock-Pot so you can make delicious food with practically zero effort. No one has the time or energy to meal prep when they need to catch up on sleep. Less time spent in the kitchen means more time to reboot and recharge your very low battery.


    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. 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.

    Promising review: "Best Crockpot in the world. I really like having a slow cooker. This one is my all-time favorite. The insert is non-stick solid aluminum so you can use it on the stovetop and then transfer it into the Crockpot base. It browns beautifully. And the nonstick coating makes clean up much easier. Even if you don't need to brown anything, you can bring whatever you are cooking up to temperature before putting it in the base to finish it. Saves a lot of time." β€”Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $69.25.

    22. Anker noise canceling headphones ideal for drowning out the busy, and often annoying, sounds of commuting. You're probably still waking up, you might as well listen to some of your favorite tracks before your day fully starts and you're forced into back-to-back meetings.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "These sound great and have great active noise canceling! They connect very quickly with bluetooth devices and I haven't had any issues with the connection dropping or anything. I haven't even charged them once since opening them about a week ago, and they've still been going strong (use them three to four hours a day for the last week)!" β€”B. Morrow

    Get them from Amazon for $99.

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

    23. A hair finishing cream to help tame those annoying baby hairs that surround your face when you throw your hair into a messy bun or ponytail. You don't have the energy to fully style your locks (or maybe even wash them, TBH), so you need a quick-fix.

    Made from natural plant extracts, the serum won't leave your hair greasy.

    Promising review: "No matter what I do or what expensive and high-rated product I try, my flyaways are an annoying constant. This product has completely rid me of my daily top of head flyaway frizz! I wish I would have discovered this product years ago! It smooths my hair out and truly lasts all day. Be careful, as a tiny bit goes a long way!" β€”RHoffsommer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.90.

    24. A motion-activated toilet light so you don't stumble around the bathroom in the middle of the night when all you want to do is go and immediately get back into bed. If you spend too much time up, you're suddenly awake.


    Promising review: "This is perfect for me! I hate turning lights in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. This gives off just the right amount for me to see where I need to go but not so much light that I’m woken up by it like the actual bathroom lights." β€”Alyssa M Nix

    Get it from Amazon for $10.74.

    25. A set of Bed Bands to keep your fitted sheet in-place through the entire night, saving you from constantly tugging them down each and every time you climb into bed. Plus, they're adjustable to fit any and all bed sizes or sheet types.

    Promising review: "I have a pillow-top queen bed that is a little too small for king sheets and too big for queen. I struggled to keep queen sheets completely on. I was about to try to customize some king sheets because it was so frustrating. Then I saw this product advertised. It works. I was shocked. My sheets have not popped off once. To say this is life changing is not an exaggeration. Such a relief to be able to sleep through the night without ending up in rumpled sheets." β€”TinkerbellAPixie

    Get four bands from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes, three colors, and packs).

    26. 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 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??

    It even has a heat feature and the option of a protection plan!

    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." β€”Sistoria

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    27. Or a handheld 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." β€”Mike

    Get it from Amazon for $41.99.

    28. A clip-on waterproof LED light for your pet so night walks aren't spent frantically searching for your pooch in dark. You just had a longgg day at work, you literally just need them to pee so you can go back inside and get into bed. The lights can also be clipped to a jacket, keys, or backpack for helpful illumination., Amazon

    Promising review: "Great product. I frequently walk my seven-month-old Doberman puppy at night due to my schedule. Often times I let him run around the park off-leash, but it’s impossible to see him in the dark. One night I saw another dog with a light around his neck similar to this product so the owner told me she got it from a local store and she paid $10 for one single light with no battery replacement. I went on Amazon to find a cheaper version and this was the best option I found. It has been great so far. I clip it onto my dog's collar and it works perfectly. We have been using it for the past few months every night for about one to two hours and we still have not needed to replace the light. I think this package will be able to last his whole doggy life. The color is very bright and his puppy friends can spot him from the parking lot." β€”Gina

    Get six lights (with extra batteries) from Amazon for $11.99.

    29. A tub cover that'll add height to your bath water by suctioning on top of your overflow drain so you can finally soak comfortably at the end of a long day. You've been looking forward to this bath since you woke up, you want to be FULLY SUBMERGED in hot water, not freezing cold because the tub won't fill up.


    Promising review: "Baths have changed for me forever! I can actually FILL THE TUB and not hear the dreaded sound of half my water (and my expensive magnesium flakes, essential oils, organic bubbles, and other fancy therapeutic ingredients) tragically vanishing down the drain. If you're a larger person trying to fit in a smaller tub, you know... THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. Now I can take more baths and enjoy more warm coziness all because of this little bit of silicone!" β€”anonymous

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in three colors).

    30. A jade roller for your face that can be massaged in upward and outward motions to help decrease puffiness around your eyes and improve dark circles β€” leading to an overall brighter complexion. If you don't get enough sleep, well, that can be your little secret.


    But wait, jade rollers don't only work on your face! The Yudao Facial Roller is a double-ended jade roller suitable for different parts of the body. The smaller roller is for the eye area, while the larger is for your neck, face, and arms. To learn more, check out our review on how jade rollers work.

    Promising review: "I started using this four days ago. I use it at night with the TruSkin Vitamin C serum and in the morning with my pore serum. I love the way it releases the tension in my face. I am a teeth grinder and I have found that it relaxes my jaw in the morning! Of course the cool feeling is soothing and the decrease in puffiness around my eyes is fabulous as well! I highly recommend this jade roller!!" β€”Charlene C.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in three versions).

    31. A lavender pillow spray, because a quick spritz before bed is the perfect solution to nighttime worries. It'll eliminate any ~weird~ room odors, leaving behind a fresh and light lavender scent that'll help lull you into a sound slumber.


    Promising review: "I sent this to my Mom because she needed lavender, and the oil wrecks linen. This is a wonderful mist. My Mom uses it to relax so that she can drift into a calm, peaceful sleep. She uses it for naps and night time. She has to get up in the middle of the night to take medication and use the bathroom. This product puts her back into her sleep mode immediately. It works!" β€”J. Blackburn

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in a gift set and eight scents).

    32. Maybelline Instant Rewind concealer with a sponge applicator tip that'll treat dark circles and under-eye puffiness so you never have to deal with that one coworker who greets you with an "are you sick?" when you walk through the door. NO, Susan, I'm just tired.

    Kayla Suazo/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This is the best under-eye concealer ever. I am 67-years-old and have tried them all. It blends nicely with my foundation and has never caked. The sponge applicator is soft and makes application quick and easy. I will continue to use this product and hope, like many products I've used over the years, that it doesn't get discontinued." β€”Morty

    Get it from Amazon for $6.37+ (available in 19 shades and as a pack of two).

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's full review on why she loves this concealer in "Just 8 Maybelline Products We Really Love" (#4).

    33. A high quality foam pillow, because a good night's sleep means more energy throughout the day to successfully tackle life's toughest tasks. This ventilated pillow will keep you cool, won't need constant fluffing, and will mold to the shape of your head.

    BuzzFeed Reviews

    Promising review: "Finally found a pillow my head and neck enjoy. I recommend this pillow for back and stomach sleepers. Gives great support and soft. Supports both head and neck perfectly. Been on it for a month now and I had no issue as all adjusting to it. Slept great first night on it. No complaints here!" β€”Kris Hall

    Get them from Amazon for $75+ (available in standard or king size).
