    1. A pair of reasonably-priced noise cancelling headphones to block out all annoying sound for less than $100 (compared to Bose, that's a steal!) — bye noisy commute home!

    Amazon

    Features: Bluetooth compatible, 30 hours playtime per charge, high-quality built-in microphone for hands-free calls, 18-month warranty

    Promising review: "I first purchased a pair for myself, and I use them on a daily train commute. They're perfect for some relaxing peace and quiet on the long way to or from work. My wife liked them so much I ended up buying her a pair, which she uses while jogging. The Bluetooth/NFC connection is quick and reliable. The audio is good, and the noise cancelling very effective." —Charles E. Hill

    Get them from Amazon for $69.99 (available in five colors).

    2. A quiet oil diffuser that'll help you unwind at the end of a long day with some peaceful essential oil aromatherapy.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works great, really easy to use! Love the look and that it starts the moment you turn it on. Added four drops of oil and my whole living room and dining room smells amazing (also have an oscillating fan moving air around)! Very quiet, too! One of my favorite Amazon purchases." —Ashley Molignoni

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in three colors).

    3. An adult coloring book and color pencil set with a case to remind yourself to chillllll out and color the stress away.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review (for the coloring book): "Sometimes you just need a little break from life. Bills, children, horrible bosses, this book is a perfect reminder that sometimes we just need to take a step back, take a moment to ourselves and Chill the F out! This book is a standard coloring book size (about the size of a magazine) printed on one side of quality coloring paper. You can even use markers with a blotter page. Mama loves her some markers! This book is more than just crude words with a color in boarder. Coloring in this book is just the right amount of Crass and Class to unwind with a glass of wine at the end of 'one of those days'." —Michelle Turner

    Get them from Amazon: the coloring book for $5.99 and the colored pencils set for $15.99.

    4. A monthly Therabox subscription that features a monthly therapeutic activity (developed by a therapist) and tons of full-sized wellness goodies, so you'll have everything you need for a dose of radical self care.

    Get it from Cratejoy for $30.99 a month.

    5. A white noise machine reviewers swear by for blocking out loud AF neighbors at all hours of the day; so the next time it's amateur bowling league hour upstairs, you can remain calm.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This sound machine has literally changed my life. The sleep with this machine is like nothing I have ever experienced. Our neighbor likes to spend his mornings shoveling gravel on a cement surface with a metal shovel about 4-5 feet from my window (like 6 am early) and to be honest, I was starting to have some pretty dangerous thoughts about stealing his shovel, breaking his arms, burning his house down.... One goes down some pretty dark paths when they suffer from insomnia already and then when they finally fall asleep get woken up with a shovel scrapping down a sidewalk. Okay so the machine somehow COMPLETELY covers the noise from the shovel, the toilet flushing next to my room, dogs barking etc. It is incredible. Highly recommend." —MorAvFire

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in two colors).

    6. A set of 10 extra large bath bombs for anyone who only has time to listen to the sound of their bath bomb fizzing away as they slip into their bath.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are awesome! I am a LUSH addict but can't always afford their glorious bomb and these are a great alternative. Most have nice pigments and some even have glitter (I LOVE glitter) and make the water magical, which always makes taking relaxing baths so much better! I was extremely pleased with how moisturizing these all were, my skin always feels so nice after soaking with these in my bath." —jenn

    Get these from Amazon for $22.97.

    7. And a set of 20 K-beauty sheet masks to wear while you soak, so you can soothe your skin as well as your mind.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've tried so many stuff on my face to help with my eczema and nothing really has had results like these face masks. After using it, I don't have dry eczema outbreaks on my face that often anymore as the mask really helps to moisturize and soothe those areas. I highly recommend for optimal results, use the face mask after you've had a shower and exfoliated your face in some way (such as using a sugar scrub or charcoal black peel off mask) that way your pores are clean and open; optimal for absorbing all the essence and hydration." —Kim

    Get them from Amazon for $20.99.

    8. An eye mask that'll truly do what any good sleep mask should — block out all light, and communicate to everyone around you that it is peace and quiet time, or else.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This mask is fantastic. I work nights and sleep during the day. I sleep like a rock after purchasing this mask. When waking after sleeping with it on I am generally disoriented because I think it’s the middle of the night when in fact it’s the middle of the afternoon." —Amazon Customer

    Maude

    Promising review: "Life changing, oh my god. I've been wanting to try out a vibrator for some time now, but like many other reviewers, I didn't like the design of others, and sometimes they can be rather costly. I found Maude through an Instagram account and everything about their website caught my eye. Shipping was SUPER quick, like, next day quick. This vibe is the perfect size, and the design is sleek and minimal, I love leaving it out on my desk! I've been able to reach orgasm on all three levels, and have orgasmed like I never have before. Simply amazing. Buy it — you won't regret it!" —Cara N.

    Promising review: "Very good for recently purchased washer/dryer combo unit. The machine makes a lot of vibrations when it is in spinning mode. However after installing this anti-vibration pad, it's very quiet. I just hear the water valves sound. I'm really happy with the result." —katt

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99.

    14. An earplug for every type of noise-hating human out there: choose from contour ear plugs, soft foam ear plugs, or tapered ear plugs and stop the rage you feel trying to sleep next to your snoring S.O.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "As a rabid insomniac and championship level light sleeper who travels internationally and has to adjust sleep schedules according to whatever time zone I am in on a weekly — sometimes daily basis, I rely on earplugs religiously to maintain whatever sanity I have remaining. I can wholeheartedly go on record and confirm without hesitation or doubt —

    THESE ARE THE BEST FOAM EARPLUGS AVAILABLE TODAY FOR PURCHASE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!!!

    I've literally spent thousands of dollars trying to find the Holy Grail of earplugs. I've tried everything from beeswax and cotton earplugs made by hippies in Northern California, custom made silicone gel, rubber with tuned inserts, electronic earplugs that allow you to adjust how much money you want to watch burn in front of you, I've tried them all. The NRR is on the nose exact. Rebound and comfort is incredible without hurting more sensitive ear canals. The trick here is Flent's Foam Formula. I can only imagine how many years and hundreds of thousands of dollars and laboratory hours were put in to developing this recipe. The 'Shore Hardness' of this foam is an exquisite masterclass in itself.

    So, if you're in the market for earplugs that will save your marriage, protect your sanity, and guarantee a night of sleep that you haven't had since you were a carefree child unshackled to any and all responsibility that comes with adulthood — these are your plugs." —Beard Beardington Esq. III

    Amazon

    Promising review: "So it’s been a few weeks since my original review and I still love this pillow. I’m obsessed. Lying on it now and reading my Kindle, can’t be happier. Im going to buy this for my mom. The pillowcase is soft and so easy to remove and wash, takes seconds to put it back on. I’ve slept with this every single night since I bought it. Can’t imagine sleep without it anymore. This will change your life!" —Analyst12

This has storage, is sturdy enough to sit on, flat enough to use as a coffee table, cushy enough to put your feet up, and it's pretty! There are little stoppers on the underside of the lid that keep it firmly seated on the base." —Hannah

I empty the tray after each cleaning session. I clean the roller once a week, removing hair, strings, yarn, etc. It has really improved our lives, our allergies, and give you peace of mind that the floors are always clean. It does occasionally catch on wires and shoelaces, but it stops and beeps to let you know.
