They are like magical heaven puffs, and I will most likely give them out as Christmas presents. I can put my head on this pillow wide awake and actually become so at peace that I fall into a magical sleep." —Erynn

    3. A body pillow intended for any champion sleeper who needs another excuse to nap.

    Promising review: "I ordered the extra firm pillows for side-sleepers and am very satisfied; they are thick and comfortable. I was worried that they'd be too firm, but they are just right. Be sure to watch the video and learn which thickness is right for your sleeping habits!" —Patti O'Barr

    6. A triangular wedge cushion for anyone who would like to replace their boring old headboard with colorful, comfy fluff.

    Price: $53.99+ / Available in five different colors.

    7. A latex foam pillow that'll cradle your neck like a little baby all night long. Sadly, it does not sing lullabies.

    Price: $36

    8. A gel contour pillow for anyone who's constantly flipping over to the cool side. This evenly disperses heat.

    Promising review: "WOW! I have finally found the perfect pillow! The gel memory foam keeps my head cool all night long, and I no longer have to keep turning my pillow throughout the night just to get to the cold side. The memory foam is not too soft and not too firm, but somewhere right in the middle. I like to sleep on my side, and I now fall asleep like a baby." —Casey T. Pilling

    Price: $31.99

    9. A twill bedrest that will transform your place of sleep into a comfy reading nook.,

    Promising review: "Looked high and low for one of these; I finally turned to Amazon and I'm glad I did. This bedrest is like the old ones my grandparents use to have — it's very sturdy and offers lots of support. I originally bought it for my mom, and now I want one for my husband and myself for when we watch TV in bed or read." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $33.90 / Available in five colors.

    10. A half-moon bolster for back sleepers that is the bees knees.

    It's the bees knees AND you sleep with it between your knees. Did that pun go over your head? It's okay if it did.

    Promising review: "I have had both of my hips replaced and have to sleep on my back. I've tried several pillows to place behind my knees for back support and comfort, and this half moon bolster is the absolute BEST! It is just the right height and density and is very comfortable. I'm sleeping so much better!" —Sandra M.

    Price: $29.71

    11. A memory foam pillow with a contour wave design ideal for anyone who suffers from back and shoulder pain.

    Promising review: "I'm an average guy with a pot belly and lower back pain. I bought this pillow on a whim and prayer, and since the first night sleeping on it, I have had ZERO lower back pain. This pillow is all I use; it supports my neck and balances me out so that I can sleep a solid eight hours pain-free." —Amazon User

    Price: $27.49

    12. A shaggy bedrest designed to support your back while adding a touch of sophistication to any room.

    Lime green is the epitome of sophistication, okay?

    Promising review: "I love this! I'm in grad school, so I spend a lot of time studying in bed and on the couch, which takes a toll on my back. But this pillow is amazing! I laughed at myself for buying it at first because I'm a grown woman buying a pink shaggy pillow, but ever since it arrived, I won't part with it. I'm not uncomfortable sitting down anymore, and I can read for hours." —LawSchoolGal

    Price: $24.99 / Available in three colors.

    13. A memory foam pillow you can adjust by adding and removing foam. Also, it's machine washable!

    Promising review: "If you are a side sleeper, back sleeper, face sleeper that ends up on your elbows while breaking your back (yes, I've done this), couch sleeper, or lazy boy sleeper, you NEED this pillow. I've tried hundreds and spent literally thousands on pillows, but this is THE ONE." —Tim

    Price: $54.99

    14. A gel technology pillow that comes with a tiny built-in AC to keep your head cool and sweat-free.*

    *Okay, it doesn't actually come with a built-in AC. BUT! The cooling gel promotes air flow, meaning your pillow will always be cool as a cucumber.

    Promising review: "I love this pillow! The memory foam is great and the cooling gel makes it much more comfortable to sleep in the California heat; this continuously feels like the cool side of an ordinary pillow throughout the night. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone, and I'm a side and stomach sleeper." —Kim

    Price: $38.95

    15. A super firm pillow designed to conform to your neck and help you sleep in a proper position.,

    Promising review: "I've been sleeping on this pillow for over a month now, and I love it just as much today as the first night I slept on it. It's comfortable because it conforms to my body and doesn't crick my neck out of whack by being too firm or high, nor does it flatten out and leave my neck without any support. It's that perfect balance of springy, cushiony support that doesn't strain the neck, even though I am a side sleeper." —Call of Kthalia

    Price: $29.86

    16. A body pillow that will make you break up with your stuffed animals. This literally screams, "cuddle me!!!"

    Goodbye, Kuddly the Koala.

    Promising review: "This is a great pillow for people that like to sleep on their sides. I am someone who's had back surgery, and this pillow is ten times better than any pillow you can buy in a store. I researched a ton of body pillows before setting on this one, and I'm so glad I chose correctly. I hope you enjoy this item as much as I do!" —Thomas

    Price: $22.59

    17. A contour foam pillow ideal for anyone who needs a solid eight hours of Zzzzz's. Beauty sleep is not a joke.

    Promising review: "This is the best pillow I've bought for my chronic neck pain. It has definitely helped! When I sleep at my boyfriend's house without this pillow, I can tell the difference; I'm considering buying an extra one for that reason." —Kendra O.

    Price: $58.99

    18. And finally, a boyfriend pillow that offers unwavering comfort and emotional support.

    Promising review: "Let me start off by saying that I bought this as an anniversary present for my (now ex-) girlfriend. This pillow is great. So good, in fact, that my girlfriend left me to start a life with it. She named it Steve. She and Steve now have three 'Children Body Pillows' together and an adorable Dog Body Pillow. This pillow may only look like half a man, but it is twice the man I'll ever be...Prospective buyers beware." —C. Hutch

    Price: $34.99 / Available in eight colors.

    Now goodbye and goodnight.
