    1. A set of cool and silky pillowcases with one side designed in a state-of-the-art Japanese cooling fabric and the other side in 100% breathable cotton — basically, you'll always know which is the cool side of the pillow.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Best...Pillowcases...Ever!! I run hot all the time, especially at night. This really helps to keep me cool at night. I fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up refreshed. The cool side of the pillow is always your side of the pillow! I actually sometimes get cold during the night. If you wake up in the middle of the night sweating, u need to get this!" —Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

    2. A smooth mulberry silk eye mask complete with a gel bead insert that can be stored in the fridge and then used to give you that cooling feeling your hot sleeps need.

    The Fitglam Pure Silk Sleep Mask in pink polka dot.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I was looking for. The silk fabric is very soft and smooth, the strap is adjustable and comfortable to wear. This mask blocks all the light from the TV or a tablet, and about 95% of brighter light from lamps or the sun. And the cold pack is fantastic, worn alone or when placed inside the sleep mask, it's a tremendous help for headaches and hot flashes. You can't beat it for the price." —Heather Harding

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in four colors).

    3. A just plain awesome Purple Mattress! Why is it so awesome you ask? Well besides being super comfortable, it's designed with a grid formation that has more than 2,800 open-air pockets which let air flow freely around your body, this makes it so that you feel cool when you lie down but then helps to neutralize your body heat so you stay cool all night long.

    Purple

    They also have a pillow that has more than 1,500 open-air channels to optimize airflow, moisture-wicking breeze mesh cover which is breathable and stretchy, and a ventilated, hypoallergenic Talalay latex core.

    Get a mattress from Purple starting at $649.

    4. A calming and relaxing weighted blanket that comes with two divet covers — one is a cozy fleece and the other is made of a CoolMax Microfiber technology that can help ventilate heat away from your body.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This blanket is wonderful! I was always curious to try a weighted blanket but was skeptical if they actually worked. After reading reviews, I thought I'd give it a try. I am so glad I did. I was having a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. After receiving this blanket, my sleep has improved dramatically and I stay asleep most of the night. I like the option of having the cooling duvet and the warmer one. I am a hot sleeper so I stick with the cool one. The only downside to the blanket is changing the duvets you have to tie countless pieces together for it to stay in place but other than that this blanket is sooo worth it!!" —Emma

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in 10 sizes and four colors).

    5. A super soft and lightweight bamboo pajama set so comfy you might need to get it in multiple colors — the viscose material (made from bamboo) is loose, breathable, and feels cool against the skin making it great for anyone who runs hot.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I do not ever write product reviews, but I just feel the need to share with other women that sleep hot, how great these pajamas are! They are so soft and comfy! I've been sleeping great since I've been wearing these PJs. I sleep hot and usually will wake up every night with the night sweats or the overheated feeling, but I've yet to have this issue with these bamboo PJs. I seem to keep an even body temperature all night long. After sleeping in them for two nights I was convinced these are the answer to a cooler and better sleep, so I ordered more. I normally wear a size small, so I ordered a small and they fit perfectly!! I think that I'll also order these PJs with the pants, for lounging around the house. If you suffer from night sweats or overheat while you sleep, THESE BAMBOO PJ's ARE THE ANSWER!!!" —Laurie

    Get the set from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in S-4X and in a 11 colors).

    6. An ultrasonic and ultra-quiet cool-mist humidifier complete with an essential oil tray, auto shutoff, night-light, and a large-capacity vaporizer.

    The ultra-sonic cool-mist humidifier.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I put this in my bedroom to help with sinus congestion. This thing is powerful. I cranked it up to high and woke up to 58% humidity, which makes you wake up feeling like you inhaled water. Turned it to low and got 49%, which ended up being about perfect. It can run for about three or four nights on low, and the oil diffuser works well if you put enough oil in it. I wake up feeling the least congested in the 48–50% range." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $64.95 (available in black and white).

    7. A BPA-free, dishwasher-safe cold brew iced coffee maker so you can wake up to a cold, refreshing beverage after a night of sweating it out.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love coffee every morning, but on hot summer mornings, making and drinking my usual French press coffee was not appealing. The cold brew is delicious, refreshing, and so easy to make! I'll probably integrate cold brew into my routine all year round because of this. The coffee maker pieces are all dishwasher safe, making it super easy to clean though I usually just give it a nice rinse every other brew or so. I also like that it's a pitcher and brew system in one and that the lid is super leak-proof!" —Tina

    Get it from Amazon for $23.58.

    8. A set of luxuriously soft Mellanni Bed Sheet Set that are so amazing, so comfy, so fantastic, they have over 53 THOUSAND 5-star reviews on Amazon — also I have these and they're awesome.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am a self proclaimed sheet snob. If it wasn’t at least 600-thread count Egyptian cotton, I was not interested. But being at the age where I get hot flashes and night sweats, and have teenage children who use Proactiv, I read the many reviews and thought, 'Why not? These are inexpensive and are peroxide resistant.' Oh my word. I’m telling you I have not slept so well in my 51 years than I have on these super soft, comfortable sheets. I ended up ordering them for all of our beds. Guests comment on how nice they are and how they keep them comfy, yet cool (no more night sweats with these!) Seriously, you need to try them because they are truly THAT GOOD! I LOVE these sheets!" —MomofFour

    Get it from Amazon for $24.70+ (available in twin XL, split king, twin-California king, and in 42 colors/patterns).

    9. A two-piece bedside water carafe so you can hydrate and quench that middle-of-the-night thirst without having to make that dreadful walk to the fridge — you know, they say a great way to stay cool while you sleep is to drink plenty of water.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect bedside carafe. It's a perfect size, dishwasher-safe, and sturdy glass." —Big Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $22.50+ (available in two designs).

    10. A refreshing memory foam bed pillow designed with a cooling gel layer so you'll always have a cool side lay your head on.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this pillow a few months ago because I was overheating in my upper level, poorly air-conditioned bedroom. I did find that it helped combat the muggy temps (about 80 degrees and very humid). It wasn't as dramatic as laying on an ice pack, but it made the situation tolerable for me, which is saying a lot because I loathe being hot at night. I have since moved to a much more pleasantly air-conditioned home and I still delight in this pillow. It goes from being okay to being pleasantly chilled. I hate not using blankets and the cooling effect is so good that I can cuddle up under a light comforter. I have only used the cooling gel side; it's very pleasant and gives the right amount of support and cushion. It is a very heavy pillow which could be a plus or minus based on your needs but for me it's perfect." —Sarah Anderson

    Get it from Amazon for $56.99.

    11. A refreshing tube of residue-free Versed The Shortcut overnight facial peel formulated using a blend of lactic and glycolic acids to help break down dead skin, vitamin A which helps exfoliate, brighten, and hydrate, and allantoin, rosehip, and vitamin E that'll keep your skin calm. It's also non-drying and non-irritating so your skin is left bright and energized. Basically, it's just a nice, crisp treat to give your skin whether you're a hot sleeper or not.

    Versed

    Promising review: "I completely love this product. I’m 27 with normal to oily skin and period acne. This stuff works wonders for my skin. It keeps it dewy but not greasy throughout the following day (yes, even after cleansing) and clears my period acne right up. Incredible stuff, lightweight application that absorbs quickly. 11/10!" —KIRBY279

    Get it from Versed for $9.99+ (available in two sizes).

    12. A breathable and fresh three-piece, 1,500-thread-count, silky soft duvet cover for when you want to feel like you're sleeping at the Four Seasons without leaving the comfort of your own home.

    The three-piece duvet cover set in cream.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is one of the cheapest duvet cover sets I was able to find online and was hesitant to purchase but I received it and immediately fell in love with the softness! I bought it in white queen size for the guest bedroom and then had to purchase another one in a king size for my master bedroom. It has buttons but the comforters inside stay in place perfectly. The fabric stays cool. It's fairly easy to put on, if you know you're supposed to grab the corners of the comforter and stick them inside one corner at a time. I love these sets so much!" —Cristina

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in queen and king and in 12 colors, if you're looking for something that fits your full and twin beds check out this microfiber set).

    13. A steady Honeywell QuietSet Whole Room Tower Fan designed to be ultra-quiet while it gently blasts you with a stream of cool air you'll love all night — and it comes with a remote, so in the unlikely event you manage to get chilly while you sleep you don't have to get up to turn it off.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Outstanding! Mrs. Wingnut needs a fan blowing on her at night to sleep well. No, the ceiling fan on high isn't enough. We were using existing fans we owned, but both of them died recently. We had never used a tower fan such as this design but were willing to take a chance. Eight speeds! VERY quiet at lower speeds, yet still not as loud as the old nine-inch diameter fans were at the highest speed. The bright blue power light on top of this model is indeed dimmable and can be turned off while the fan is running. You can choose to oscillate or not. For Mrs. Wingnut's sleeping purposes, this fan gets set to the highest speed and the power light turned off. One thing we hadn't anticipated that is a big plus — we had to use a small table to elevate the old fans high enough off the floor. The base already elevates this thing a bit and the rest of the height takes it up high enough for her needs. Awesome! Small footprint!!!" —Dr. Horrible F. Wingnut

    Get it from Amazon for $64.99 (available in black or white).

    14. A very supportive body pillow that's, yes, meant for pregnant people but hear me out, if you're a cuddler this is a great alternative to using an actual human who gets all hot and needs to move and then bother you.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I was really miserable from the beginning to the end of my pregnancy. This pillow was literally the only thing that made me comfortable. I even brought it with me to the hospital when I got induced. This pillow is probably what allowed me to keep working up until the day I had her because I couldn't get any sleep without it. One of the great things about it is it stays cool, so if you're super hot all the time like I was you won't have to keep adjusting it to the cooler parts. Now that my daughter is here I've used the end of it like a boppy and it works great (particularly for night feedings). I also still like to sleep with it. I would absolutely buy it again." —KatieTop

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in three colors).

    15. A set of room-darkening velvet curtains to help stop that hot sun from adding to the rising temps you feel in your bedroom.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Purchased these for my studio, which is in an old mill. I wanted them for their insulating properties more than to block out the light because my studio loses a lot of heat at night due to its enormous windows. The curtains/drapes work great for both — I am especially pleased with how well they help keep the space from losing heat! Before having the curtains, the space would lose about 8 degrees in temperature overnight (which in the winter is a significant amount, especially in the northeast). Now, with the curtains, the space no longer loses heat overnight! It is now so nice to go into my studio in the morning and find it still toasty warm!" —Noname

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four sizes and seven colors).

    16. A voice- or phone-controlled Nest thermostat that'll learn your preferences based on the time of day and season and make sure your home is always the perfect temperature and you're not sweating up a storm.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've never had a smart thermostat before, so I have nothing to compare it to. But this Nest device is amazing. Even better, the installation instructions are CLEAR and EASY to understand! There are interactive pictures and a text-based set of instructions online that take you through each step, and troubleshoot along the way. The thermostat works with my Google Mini and of course the Nest app. You can program what times you want the house to be at which temp and it will either start heating/cooling at that time, or you can set it to start before then, so it's nice and comfy when you get home. It has features for dealing with humidity and can even learn your temp preferences and adjust accordingly." —L Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $217.99+ (available in seven colors).

    17. A soothing and cooling Natural Escapes organic peppermint, camphor and menthol cream designed to help alleviate your sore muscles but, its refreshing qualities can also help (quite literally) chill you out before you tuck in for the night.

    Natural Escapes Organic Peppermint, Camphor & Menthol Cooling Cream
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a truly remarkable product, far better than anything else I've encountered on the market. It is, at once, cooling, soothing, and therapeutic. The lotion feels fresh and absorbs quickly to relieve pain or excessive itching. It appears that the natural ingredients were carefully chosen and proportioned. After buying a small bottle, I ordered two in the 8.5-ounce size. I highly recommend this cooling, skin-nourishing, very effective lotion." —richard

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    18. A relaxing silk pillowcase so you can sleep in the cool lap of luxury — a luxury that just so happens to be totally hypoallergenic, helps retain hair moisture and reduce frizziness, stays cool, and is recommended by dermatologists to minimize fine lines.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I ADORE THESE! I just gave two to a friend as part of a wedding gift and she is in love. I think I will have to order them by the dozen so I can still have one for me as my whole family covets them and is stealing them away. They are great for curly hair. You wake up and your hair doesn't look like a rat's nest. I've read that they are also great for your skin so I am watching to see if that is true. Thank you for a fabulous product." —Lena

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in three sizes and 35 colors).

    19. An almost arctic Therapedic Polar Nights pillow designed specifically for side sleepers, it has cooling memory foam and gel fibers which, when tested, showed to stay 25x cooler than other pillows — TWENTY-FIVE TIMES.

    Bed Bath & Beyond

    Promising review: "Ice Ice Baby! All right...Stop, take a moment to listen! Polar nights are back with a brand new invention. Sweating all the time is unsightly, flowing like an athlete daily and nightly. Will it ever stop? I don’t know. Turn off the lights, and I’ll glow. To the extreme, I’m wiping off my forehead as it gleams. Kicking off the covers, sweating in streams. Sweat! Go rush a fan box that blows, I’m pouring off sweat and it shows. Sweaty, that’s my night. Need a new pillow, that’s my blight! — As a lady of a certain age, I cannot recommend this pillow enough! I am wondering where this has been all of my menopausal life! The touch-activated cool is responsive almost immediately. Now if the rest of my bed's needs would just get on the same page I may just be back in the saddle before you know it. Even if the only action I see is a solid eight hours of sleep I’ll be one happy customer." —Chillmomma

    Get it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $129.99.

    20. A clinical-strength antiperspirant for two times the sweat protection than your regular old deodorant.

    Secret Antiperspirant and Deodorant for Women
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I sweat a lot, and tend to start smelling just a few hours after I shower. I have consistently struggled to find a deodorant that keeps me free from smell and withstands all day. I do a heavy spin class followed by weight training and never have time throughout the day to reapply deodorant. This deodorant is perfect! It lasts all day and has a very beautiful smell, like a light fragrance of peonies. It not only lasts through my morning and afternoon but also through my gym workout through the evening. YAY!! I couldn't be more pleased, and this size is perfect because it's bigger than the usual size that's in store. The consistency is a liquid powder form that becomes invisible just after you apply. The only tip I have is to be sure to scrub your under arms in the shower, because since it's waterproof, it will definitely stay on and leave a film. It's that resilient ;)" —Chanel C

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97+ (available in two scents).

    21. A cooling and super soft mattress cover filled with 4D spiral fiber that traps air and enables it to breathe and keep its shape longer. It's also made of 400 TC combed cotton which wicks away any moisture or sweat — oh, and it has deep pockets and is machine-washable.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I had a different mattress cover before and I never got that nice crisp feeling in my sheets so I thought it may be from the mattress cover I originally bought. I got this one that had many reviews saying it had a cooling effect and YES it does. I get in my sheets and they’re so much cooler! Also, the cover gives a nice added cushioning." —E. Shaughnessy

    Get it from Amazon for $38.90+ (available in twin- California king and in three colors).

    22. A 2-inch (or 3-inch), gel-infused memory foam mattress pad that just might help your old mattress feel cool again — it's infused with temperature-regulating gel beads that capture and dissipate heat to help prevent overheating.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had to buy a new mattress topper and was looking for a great quality one that wasn’t that expensive. It’s winter here so, yes our heating is on. I started sweating and sort of sticking to the bed out of nowhere. I have never done that before. So I put a blanket under me which helped with the stickiness but worsened the sweating problem. So I ordered this one and now I sleep comfortably. No sweating or stickiness. Just careful with liquids. It’s foam and sucks it up and takes a while to dry. That might not be obvious for some people. Five stars would recommend." —Teresa Benson

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in twin XL and twin-California king, twin and full XL, and RV queen).

    23. A natural vitamin supplement — an organic blend of KSM-66 ashwagandha, vitex chaste tree berry, black cohosh, magnolia, hops, and St. John's wort — designed for anyone dealing with hot flashes due to menopause.

    A bottle of Staying Cool Hot Flashes & Menopause Natural Relief supplements.
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I'm 61 years old and have suffered for years from severe head sweating. I talked to several of my doctors who basically said, 'Get used to it, some people just sweat a lot.' When asked, I would tell people I don't have hot flashes, just one long flash that started 10 years ago and hasn't stopped. I was hot all the time, sweating no matter what temperature, what time of year, working in the garden or sitting watching TV. I have a box specifically for 'sweat rags' since I was going through way too many paper towels. And then I did some extensive researching and came across this product on Amazon. Staying Cool is a miracle. It advised to give from 30 days to three months to see a difference, but had so many good reviews I went ahead and ordered. Within two weeks of starting, the sweating has stopped. Stopped!! I can't believe it. I feel like a new person! No more rags and no breakout sweats in the middle of the grocery store. If any can relate, you know how embarrassing it is. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. I've already signed up for regular shipments. The product is a godsend!!!" —Annamarie Gibbas

    Get a bottle of 60 capsules from Amazon for $29.99.

    24. A BedJet 3 Climate Comfort which provides on-demand cooling, warming, and sweat drying right in your bed — it works with any size bed or mattress including adjustable beds. It works via a powered ventilation cooling system which wicks body heat and moisture out of the bed for the cooling relief you dream about.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the first time I have ever been moved to write a review on Amazon but this is the single most amazing product if you sleep hot! This thing WORKS and it is saving my life! It only took a NASA Engineer to solve my propensity to burst into to flames every night at 2 a.m.!" —Matthes

    Get it from Amazon for $493 (available in two styles).
