    1. A set of satin sheets to keep you cool on even the hottest of nights — you may not ever want to leave your bed.


    Get them from Wayfair for $55.99+ (available in four sizes).

    2. A set of blackout curtains for keeping the sun out during the day so your place isn't burning up when you come home at night.


    Promising review: "When I got this I was so pleased! After hanging what I bought, I got right back on Amazon and hit buy again! Love, love, love them! The drapes themselves are really heavy and well made. It absolutely made that room much cooler, and kept it dark so the sun didn't wake them up at 6 a.m." —Jan A.

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in five sizes and 17 colors).

    3. A temperature-regulating comforter with a patented technology called "thermocules" to absorb and release excess body heat for temperature maintenance throughout the night. And you can use it by itself or as a duvet insert!


    Promising review: "My husband gets hot throughout the night and generally sweats. I have no 'insulation' on me to keep me warm and finding this comforter has been a major miraculous blessing for us!! For me, it works great with giving more warmth and for my husband, it's like the comforter vacuums the heat out so he doesn't sweat!! Due to this amazing new technology, I don't have to wash the sheets and other bedding every day!" —Sleepless overheat ed

    Get it from Target for $74.09 (originally $77.99, available in three sizes and two colors).

    4. And a hygro cotton temperature-regulating pillow to regulate moisture while you sleep and keep you cool in the summer, but also warm in the winter. You can't get the comforter without the pillows, right?


    Promising review: "This Goodful temperature regulating hygro cotton standard pillow is all you need for a great night’s sleep. The weather is cooling off and keeps my head warm at night. It’s not too firm but definitely not too soft. It’s like sleeping on clouds. I’ve not experienced any headaches, neck aches, or shoulder soreness. Going to purchase some additional ones for my husband and children. I look forward to laying my head down each night with this terrific pillow." —Reb304

    Get them from BuzzFeed's Goodful collection, exclusively at Macy's for $27.99+ (available in two sizes).

    5. A mini window AC unit that'll save you if your room doesn't have any AC — it might be small, but it'll get the job done!


    Promising review: "I wasn't expecting much because of the small size, but this unit cools much more than the dining area for which it was intended." —WalmartisKool

    Get it from Walmart for $159.99.

    6. A silk pillowcase with fabric that'll not only help keep your head from sweating, but will also help with preventing fine lines on your face and breakage in your hair — you'll never want to live without it.


    Plus it's chemical-free and naturally dyed!

    Promising review: "I bought this pillowcase because I was growing my hair out, and it was falling off with a normal cotton pillowcase. After I got this case I noticed it was real silk and very soft. I also noticed I sleep better with a cool pillow, and this keeps my pillow cool and my hair slides across it with ease while I'm sleeping. I stopped having to wrap my hair, because the silk pillow was keeping my hair together without the need for a wrap. I recommend this pillow for anyone who is having a hard time sleeping, needs their hair to grow, or just plain wants a soft pillow surface to put your face on." —Nefu

    Get it from Amazon for $25.90+ (available in seven sizes and 27 colors).

    7. A set of highly-rated microfiber sheets you'll freak out over when you realize how silky smooth, soft, cool, and lightweight they are.


    Promising review: "I can't believe these are so cheap for such great quality. They're soft and comfortable. They don't give that sticky, thick feeling. I live in a very humid area and though my apartment gets hot, I never get that post-nap or post-sleep sweat from these sheets. They have this great ability to just keep me comfy and cool. These sheets are such a steal with the well-made pillowcases! Seriously such a good buy!!" —Mimi

    Get it from Amazon for $29.70 (available in seven sizes and 36 colors).

    8. A beachy duvet cover with cotton seersucker fabric for a wrinkled effect that also offers nice breathability — you'll feel so cool and relaxed, like you're on vacation.


    This duvet set comes with two shams, and can be washed in a machine on cold and tumble dried on low.

    Promising review: "Quite pleased with the quality for the price point. It washed up great and the fabric is lightweight, which is what I wanted. The underside is a simple white, so you can reverse this in a pinch. The buttons are secure and the seams are great." —Carbon Mini

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in three sizes and colors).

    9. A sexy silk pajama set you'll love if you don't like to sleep naked or wear thick pajamas (this cooling fabric will keep you from overheating).


    Promising review: "I love the texture and breathability. They fit me just right. You should know they’re pretty cheeky, but I wanted that. Perfect pajamas, especially for summer nights." —Mik1995

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and 15 colors).

    10. A down alternative comforter that'll be so lightweight and warm, it won't smother you in your sleep. And it's washing machine–friendly!


    Promising review: "This comforter is amazing! I was getting too warm with my down comforter but still wanted something soft, and this was the answer. It's very light, yet still provides enough warmth that I'm only using this with a flat sheet. It fit perfectly in my duvet cover and comes with loops on each corner and midway between the corners." —JoiseyGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in eight sizes and five colors).

    11. A set of elegant lace sheets with ultra-deep pockets so you can fit your new cooling mattress under it without struggling. And these'll make your bedroom look royal.


    Promising review: "I have a mattress and topper that are at least 18 inches deep. My old sheet tore in the corners. These sheets are soft and cool at night. They are so deep that I have to tuck the excess under the bed. I couldn't be happier." —KimTheFemale

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in five sizes and 18 colors).

    12. A cooling mattress pad cover overfilled with goose-down alternative to solve those sweaty night problems and help you get the rest you need.


    It's hypoallergenic and machine washable!

    Promising review: "This is a great product! The mattress cover is very comfortable, and you’ll never sweat on it! It’s breathable and allows air through. If you have back problems, this product is highly suggested for you. It’s very easy to keep it clean! If you use it during the summer, it’ll help you cool down, if you use it during the winter, it’ll keep you warm!" —Sammy

    Get it from Amazon for $49.90+ (available in five sizes).

    13. A pineapple print duvet cover that'll get you and your bedroom in a summery mood. Also, it's made with breathable cotton so you won't roast.


    Promising review: "I absolutely adore this duvet cover. According to my social media, other people love it too! It gets softer as you wash it, and it's such a lovely color on the flip side. I don't know, it just makes me happy to get into bed! The ties on the inside make it easy to put on without any help needed and the zipper is very discreet. Definitely worth every penny." —Hensa

    Get it from Amazon for $48.99+ (available in three sizes and eight prints).

    14. A colorful gel mask to stick in the fridge or freezer to keep your face cool while you're sleeping. It's also great for migraines and eye puffiness.


    Promising review: "I know that this product is meant as a hot/cold eye mask, but I especially love it as a sleep mask. I do shift work and sleep at odd hours and need a sleep mask to black out the light when I am sleeping through the day. My problems with sleep masks in the past have been that they get too hot or uncomfortable, or the straps are too thin. This is by far the most comfortable sleep mask I have ever had. It is made of high-quality fabric, it stays cool on my face, the straps don't make the sides of my head itch and the elastic itself is soft and comfortable." —Quinn

    Get it from Amazon for $7.80 (available in eight colors).

    15. A sleek oscillating tower fan with touch control and a remote for an extra boost of cold air on miserable hot days.


    Promising review: "This fan is ridiculous awesome! It not only looks nice, but it's so quiet. It's perfect for where you watch TV or where kids are playing their video games. It cools a pretty wide area too. I like it so much I'm planning to buy another one." —stacy

    Get it from Amazon for $55.99 (available in two colors).

    16. A stylish flamingo duvet cover that'll revamp your room for the new season. And it's made from a lightweight microfiber to keep you nice and cool.


    The set comes with two pillow shams in addition to the cover.

    Promising review: "I love, love this duvet set! It is so beautiful and I really enjoy the way it feels. It is soft and almost silky, but it is also extremely light. The material is quite thin, which is what I like since I am a hot sleeper and thinner duvet covers tend to feel cooler, regardless of the thickness of duvet insert. I ordered a full/queen, and it fits beautifully on my queen bed. My duvet insert right now is an extremely light (not very puffy) polyester material. It fits slightly loose (just due to it not being quite puffy enough, not the dimensions) but it doesn't bother me at all. It is actually good because that means for the winter I can put a much puffier, goose down inside the cover and it will fit great." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $21.79+ (available in three sizes and 22 other prints).

    17. A two-inch gel foam mattress topper to prevent heat accumulation, while the memory foam helps to relax your muscles. Not only will you sleep cool, but your joints will also appreciate your purchase.


    Promising review: "OMG!! LOVE this thing!!! I have so much horrible joint and bone pain for years and nothing worked. I tried all kinds of toppers: feathers, egg crate, foams — and while they made my bed a bit softer, none of them ever helped me sleep this well and wake up without all the pain and stiffness I've suffered from for 20+ years. THE BEST thing I've bought for ME and my health on Amazon." —J. Hyde

    Get it from Amazon for $82.95+ (available in five sizes).

    18. A bamboo sheet set – the fabric is designed to help regulate temperatures. It's also eco-friendly and made from renewable resources!


    Promising review: "I have been searching for gold sheets for a year for one. Second, it is VERY hard to find sheets that don't make me hot! I live in Arizona where the average temp is over 100 degrees so finding something that doesn't make me sweat when I sleep is crucial. I recently bought a bamboo pillow and found I didn't have to turn it over half way through the night to a cooler side so I thought maybe bamboo sheets would be better for our temps. Not only did I find these sheets to be the perfect color but they are extremely soft and YES they are cooler and don't make the bed hot! YESSS finally!" —Kelly J.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in four sizes and 41 colors).

    19. A customizable cordless blackout shade that'll keep heat and sunlight out so your house won't feel like an oven when the sun is shining!

    Home Depot

    Promising review: "I purchased and installed these throughout the entire house. We already see a difference in how they block the light and heat when pulled down, and we love the darkness when we sleep. The cordless feature is very easy to use (I hope it lasts for many years). The size availability was adequate for my needs. Not hard to install at all." —Harley

    Get it from The Home Depot for $55.97+ (available in four colors).

    20. A floral duvet cover made of lightweight microfiber for an airy vibe.


    Promising review: "King size duvets can be super expensive! I can’t believe this one only cost $30. I needed a new duvet for our spare bedroom to replace the one we had that got dingy over the years. This has a zipper closure, which I prefer and comes with two pillowcases. It reminds me of hotel linens. Also, the material is pretty wrinkle free. I was too lazy to steam it before placing it on the bed, but after a few days, the creases went away. I recommend this duvet. Definitely worth it!" —tasha clites

    Get it from Amazon for $26.95+ (available in two sizes).

    21. A summery sheet set made of a light fiber that'll help you drift off into a deep sleep. And those cute patterns will enliven your bedroom.


    Promising review: "I love sheets that remind me of when I was kid at my grandparents' house (they always had the best sheets). These are so wonderful! Cool and soft, and what an amazing price! So happy I made this purchase." —Julie S.

    Get it from Overstock for $24.99 (available in five sizes and six prints).

    22. A liquid cotton blanket made of soft material that's moisture-wicking and breathable so when you're sleeping, you won't feel like a hot pocket. It'll be a perfect blanket for hot sleepers to use any time of the year!


    Promising review: "I love this blanket. I was looking for the perfect blanket for hot flashes. I wanted something heavier than a sheet but not too heavy to make me hot. This blanket is perfect. I highly recommend for any women with temperature problems when sleeping." —Motherrunner

    Get it from Target for $37.49 (available in seven colors).

    23. A small but mighty, powerful fan with a remote control so you can sit back, relax, and just stay ~cool~.


    Promising review: "I bought my third blizzard fan two years ago this month and all three continue to work perfectly! They put out a lot of air, are quiet, are very mobile/don't weigh much at all, and can easily be adjusted remotely from across a large room. The oscillating feature helps to adjust it so the airflow is exactly where you want it. And it's easy to clean! What's not to love! It will be worth the price! HIGHLY RECOMMEND BUYING THIS FAN...look no further!" —Smyles23

    Get it from Amazon for $35.05 (available in two colors).

    24. And a lightweight quilt blanket for those who love quilts but don't like how heavy they are. This blanket will feel weightless and keep you cozy without overheating.

    Home Depot

    Promising review: "So soft, perfect lightweight cover for Houston in the summer. Even better than expected for such a good price." —ASB

    Get it from The Home Depot for $22.50 (available in three sizes and ten colors).
