    6. A Hygro cotton duvet set in lots of cute prints so you can drift off to easy, breezy Dreamland where it doesn't feel like you're trapped in a sauna.


    They're 300-thread count. (FYI, super high thread counts can make for hotter sheets, so 300 is juuuust right.)

    Promising review: "This is our first foam mattress and we are extremely pleased. Coming from a innerspring mattress it took a little getting used to but nothing bad. I do sleep HOT and have had no problems with heat build up. Although it is winter right now. Mattress is firm. We bought a quilted topper here at Amazon that I think helps out a lot. After two weeks, my back feels better and I sleep more soundly. We are going to purchase these for the kids too." —jerryb

    10. And a bed fan in case you want to enhance your "I'm the king of the world!" dreams with some between-the-sheets breeze.


    Promising review: "This is worth every penny. I've had such a hard time sleeping because I am so HOT ALL THE TIME. I live in Colorado, and even sleep with the windows open when it's freezing outside, but I would still wake up because of being hot. This has completely solved the problem. You can turn it low, where you can barely feel it, but it still keeps you cool, to high, where it actually blows the sheets up! I do have to wear socks when it's turned up, or else my feet get a little cold, but it keeps the rest of me cool. It sits at the foot of the bed, and I think I'll try to move it to the side for more even cooling." —M.I. Silk

    Get it from Amazon for $329+ (available in two sizes).

    11. Mentha lip balm that'll perk up your lips while delivering a refreshing cold front.

    Promising review: "I use this whenever I feel tired, and always after I’ve cleansed my face. I use rubbing alcohol to clean it after use and then put it back in the freezer in its own ziplock. I notice it’s helped with the redness in my face and it also helped when I’ve had migraines. It starts behind my eye so I roll it over whichever side of my head is in pain and it seems to help." —maihiro

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in six color combos).

    13. Satin pillowcases to make both sides of the pillow the cool side.


    I have these and love them.

    Promising review: "Great buy! I have done a lot yard work and recently had to break down a huge mount of dirt and rake grooves in it to plant grass seed. I so happened to pick one of the hottest days to do it. But this towel did the trick! It kept me cool enough to complete the task. I did have to go inside to get it cool again, but it took no time to do so." —Anna DePinto

    I have been to MANY of those shows before.

    Promising review: "Great product for anyone that works outdoors in the summer. My hubby works outside as a postman and this product definitely helps keep him stay cool! He wets it down and puts it in the freezer. He carries it in his lunch box at work and when it starts getting hot, its ready to use and helps him finish out the day a lot cooler! And it's washable (we don't put in the dryer), which is a BIG plus!!" —Melissa

    31. A foot deodorant cream because if you're hot all day, you might have sweaty feet too!

    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 vitamins from Amazon for $29.99.

    Here's to some calming, cool relief:
