    "After a good sleep, a good eat, after a good eat, a good sleep." —Guadalupe Padilla, my grandma

    1. A compact three-in-one breakfast maker that'll fit right on your bedstand and make your coffee, toast, and eggs — so if you like waking up to the smell of freshly cooked bacon you don't have to worry about your grill clamping down on your foot.

    Promising review: "I love this little cooking machine! It's too cute and very functional. All parts work great. I use the coffee maker the most. Very easy/fast.

    This morning I made eggs on the top and a piece of toast in the toaster. Worked well. Doesn't take long at all!" —Mandy

    Get it from Amazon for $28.42 (available in red, blue, white, and black).

    2. A set of dip clips designed to attach to the side of your plate and hold your favorite condiment — that way you don't need an additional plate or have to worry about spills.

    Promising review: "These are SO easy to use and so convenient!!! I hate when I have food and need room for ketchup or any other dipping sauce, and end up having to use a GIANT plate for a smaller portion of food just to have room for ketchup. These have made that issue completely disappear! They fit snug to really any plate and hold just enough sauce for dipping!!! I absolutely love these and will be purchasing more for friends and family during the holidays!!!" —Ariel

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $7.79.

    3. A survival list, I mean T-shirt, so you can stay comfortable while you devour a delicious meal in peace.

    Get it from CozyGal on Etsy for $13.05 (available in sizes XS-XL and in white, black, and gray).

    4. A universal stretch lid that'll help prevent any spillage as you drink out of your favorite mug.

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical, but these soft, stretchable, silicone lids really fit just about every cup and glass I have tried them on. The soft silicone and double groove accommodate different diameters and provide a pretty good seal. The straws fit snugly in the pre-cut opening and the lids do keep drinks from spilling out. I like the flexibility of being able to use these for both cold and hot drinks. How often has a cup of coffee tipped over and ruined a keyboard? I like to put one of these lids on my 'power shake' when I'm exercising out in the garden to stop bugs from taking a swim and to keep the mix fresher (especially when I use fruit). Also very useful to seal my bedside glass of water, instead of having a whole bottle on hand." —Blue Dolphin

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95 (available in pink and blue).

    5. A set of Tide To Go pens, because in the event of a little spill, you can deal with it and continue on your journey to relaxation time.

    Promising review: "Works flawlessly every time for pretty much any stain I've ever had on any fabric. Chocolate, coffee, sauce, blood, etc., on clothes, sheets, blankets, etc. It's awesome that they have it on here for cheaper. I like to have them on hand everywhere I go." —bagel

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $5.99.

    6. A handheld cordless mini vacuum so you can clean up the evidence of all those cookies you devoured in bed.

    Promising review: "Great, lightweight little vacuum for cat litter, crumbs, dust. Good suction. Wall-mountable bracket for recharging and storage. The bracket also stores two attachments. Just what I needed." —Sanjosemom

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    7. A set of martini sippy cups that'll help you keep your favorite cocktails from being wasted on your sheets.

    Get a set of four from Wayfair for $37.99. Also available for margaritas and wine.

    8. A cozy little cotton throw blanket to remind you not to give up on your new favorite restaurant.

    Get it from PCB Home on Etsy for $30 (available in white, tan, and gray).

    9. A Mr. Coffee mug warmer that'll keep your fav hot beverage at the perfect temperature and prevent you from having to get up.

    Promising review: "I have several of these and love them. I keep one on my desk at work, one in my kitchen, and one next to my bed. No more cold coffee or tea while working, cooking, or reading in bed! :-) If you use a thinner cup this works perfectly. I love the fact that the on/off switch is on the warmer and not on the cord, which means you can tuck the extra cord behind things on your desk or counter. This is a great product that does what it's supposed to — your coffee/tea stays warm even in a cold office. I've had one of these on my desk at work for the last four years and use it approximately 45 hours a week and it's still going strong." —Kim

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    10. A four-pocket serving tray with lockable guac preservation container so you can keep everything fresh and in its place all day.

    Get it from The Grommet for $30 or from Amazon for $24.90.

    11. A super-compact mini fridge perfect for holding your refrigerated goods within arm's reach — like you're never gonna leave your bed, guys, we're not here to play.

    Promising review: "I love keeping cold drinks next to my bed at night because I’m too lazy to go downstairs to the kitchen and get them. Because it’s portable, I can keep it by my bed, or I could take anywhere that I want to have cold drinks. I could even use it in my car because I can plug it into the outlet in the car. So glad I found this product!" —Oryah Bunder

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in red, blue, and white).

    12. A comfortable AF four-piece set of hypoallergenic microfiber sheets designed to be wrinkle-, fade-, and stain-resistant — so they'll make your meal a fine dining experience.

    Set includes two pillowcases, a fitted sheet, and a flat sheet.

    Promising review: "These sheets are honestly worth the hype. There's no doubt I would buy these sheets over and over again. I can't believe these are so cheap for such great quality. I went to Ross and TJ Maxx to find sheets and they were all around $40 but with only a 300 thread count. Why even get the sheets??

    Then I looked here and found them for such a great deal, I figured why not? The reviews that rave about these sheets are so right! 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 the set from Amazon for $24.70+ (available in sizes twin-California king and in 27 colors).

    13. A plush cup holder that'll fit your beverages, remotes, and other things you might need while you set up your nest.

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. It fulfilled a cup-holder need in our household. We now have a place for our beverages as we watch TV at night. Definitely, recommend! :)" —Coffee Lover

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99.

    14. A waterproof and hypoallergenic mattress protector so all those accidental spills don't destroy your mattress.

    Promising review: "It passes the liquid test!!!! Last night I had a spill accident and took the protector off to find a dry mattress underneath! WOW! Placing another order." —Cherlene

    Get it from Amazon for $26.97+ (available in sizes twin-California king and for cribs).

    15. A practical wooden bed tray to fit all the goodies you plan on consuming while you do nothing but relax in the oasis that is your bed.

    Promising review: "We eat a lot of meals in our room because it’s just comfier LOL. These trays are amazing! They look nice, they’re a great size, and they’re easy to store since the legs fold up. Definitely, recommend!" —Ashley H

    Get it from Amazon for $21.29.

    16. A plush lounging pillow to help you stay upright, comfy, and totally choke-free.

    Promising review: "This is a great backrest for my iron bedstead. It is firm to keep it from collapsing like a regular pillow but soft enough to be comfortable. The cover is a soft minky like fabric that can be spot-cleaned and sun-/air-dried. It is not heavy to carry around. Very useful for sitting up to read, eat, or even sleep if need be." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in standard and XL sizes).

    17. An attachable bed shelf that'll give you a little extra space to hold your snacks.

    Promising review: "This took a little playing with but I'm very happy with it. If it's flimsy next to your bed, it's not in the right position. It must fit snug and pushed all the way down the bed frame. A quarter inch makes all the difference. Very sturdy when placed correctly :). Would highly recommend." —Pinky

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in eight colors).

    18. An energetic little ceramic mug to hold your drink and your cookies in one handy place.

    Promising review: "This is a big, sturdy cup that is hilariously cute!" —Calex

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    19. A comfy waterproof bed cover so you can make a mess if you really just don't want to deal with being neat — and not have worry about wrecking your beautiful bed set.

    Promising review: "Washing the duvet cover, comforter, blanket and sheets twice in one week (thanks to a cat who decided peeing on the bed is fun) left me with the option of either covering the bed with a tarp or finding something that would serve the same purpose and actually look good. This was it. It matches the bedding, doesn't look or feel like a tarp, and completely does what it says it does — keeps the liquid on just this layer, protecting everything underneath. It washes nicely (I run a few additional spin cycles to get as much water out — this fabric is very absorbent, so more spin cycles just helps with the drying time). I was hesitant because of the price, but it's already paid for itself when I consider how much time and money I saved. This can be washed at home fast and easy." —stacyo

    Get it from Amazon for $56.65+ (available in twin/loveseat and king/queen as well as for sofas and recliners, and in blue, camel, green, and gray).

    20. And a two-in-one alarm clock and coffee maker, because the best part of waking up is coffee in your alarm clock.

    Promising review: "My life is changed! Finally, a civilized way to wake up in the morning. It's magnificent; a great whoosh of boiling water, then the pleasing aroma of strong Assam tea steeping and a gentle beep to wake you. One snooze cycle is the perfect steeping time for black tea! The top is a perfectly sized little tea tray to hold my waiting cup and a little jug of milk! I am writing this at 7 am! SEVEN! In time, I think my husband will adjust, and learn to appreciate that I am no longer a complete ogre in the morning. My only regret is that I was 43 before I found this miracle of mornings." —Amanda Doherty

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

    Bone apple tea everyone!
