    1. A sloth essential oil diffuser to help you ~slow down~ after a chaotic day.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I love this diffuser so much! Not only is it adorable, but it produces a strong mist and spreads the scent of the essential oils throughout the room." β€”sienap94

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $69.

    2. A set of heavy flannel sheets that'll make you late every morning because you simply won't want to leave your bed.


    I would argue that there are few things as satisfying as climbing under the covers to lay on top of fresh sheets. These flannel sheets take that experience and make it 10x better. The velvet flannel provides a luxurious feel you'll never want to leave.

    Promising review: "Oh. My. Heavens. We had considered flannel sheets for years, and we even bought a set once, but had to return them because they didn't fit our deep pocketed mattress and just gave up. We only want them when it's cold out, not all year long. So, the years passed and we had COLD sheets. This set was a game changer!! They truly do have deep pockets and fit our queen bed very well. They washed nicely and are thicker than expected. Getting into bed at night with these sheets feels SOOOOOO warm compared to our other sheets!! Love these." β€”recycle-it

    Get it from Amazon for $67.52+ (available in three sizes and 11 styles).

    3. A white noise sound machine to soothe you to sleep each evening.


    There are two kinds of people in this world: those that can fall asleep as soon as their heads hit the pillow, and the rest of us. If you're in the latter, you should give this white noise sound machine a shot! It has two speed settings so you can customize exactly how much sound comes out. Over 10.6K Amazon customers have given this machine a 5-star review β€” I'm sold.

    Promising review: "Picture this: you're walking down a creepy forest where everything and everyone, mainly all the wildlife, is making their normal loud noises. The environment is not inviting to take a nap there, but then angels appear and say, 'we will sing for you now.' They proceed to sing, and their song is in synchronized humming and the next thing you know you're out!! Freakin' angels! What have you done to me?! I fall asleep like a baby!" β€”David Hernandez

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (available in five colors).

    4. A pair of fleece pajamas that have POCKETS and'll provide you with some much-needed comfort after a cold commute. Need I say more?,

    Sign me up for anything that has pockets. Made of 100% polyester, these PJs come with a drawstring waistband and will keep you comfortable. You can easily lay in bed for hours in these bad boys, not to mention all the fun patterns they come in! Excuse me while I add the taco-print to my cart. Note: customers say they run small, so order a size up.

    Promising review: "I got the Night Owl pair of these for Christmas, promptly put them on and didn't take them off for the next two days. These are quite probably the softest, most cuddly thing I have ever worn in my entire life. They are so unbelievably warm and soft and have just enough stretch to follow your movements without being restricting. I loved them so much that I bought another pair on my own, the Sweet Heart. They, too, are so very comfortable that I may never leave the house again." β€”jayamama

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 35 styles).

    5. A $40 humidifier can help prevent your bedroom air from resembling that of the Sahara Desert., Amazon

    It uses cool mist which is said to help you breathe more easily and get a more restful sleep. This version is great for both adults, kids, and pets!

    Promising review: "Ordered due to living in the desert and my mom kept urging me to get one because of how dry the air is in my house. I sit mine next to the bed and it’s great. I run it when I sleep and I’m beginning to feel a difference in my nose and throat." β€”Amanda

    Check out our full review on the Pure Enrichment MistAire Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier here.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    6. A temperature regulating comforter that'll help you sleep through the night without the annoyance of overheating or being too cold.


    Is this comforter woven out of wishes and dreams? Just maybe. I'm a very hot sleeper and am constantly kicking off the covers during the night. This comforter is made of hygro cotton which wicks way moisture and keeps your body at the perfect temperature β€” it's magical.

    Promising review: "This comforter is light and warm, soft and cool in hot or cool temperature! Great quality and brightens up your room, love it!" β€”QueenB

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $99.97 (originally $200, available in full/queen

    7. And a set of printed sheets to pair perfectly with the hygro cotton comforter.


    These sheets are made of 300 thread count hygro cotton! Treat yo' self and nab a set!

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $79.99 (originally $115, available in queen sizing and four styles).

    8. A curtain of twinkle lights that'll make you feel like you're sleeping inside a magical fairyland. Who wouldn't want that?,

    If it were up to me, I would leave my Christmas lights up inside my home all year long. These twinkle lights are a great way to create that look without being overtly holiday-themed. Tinker Bell would certainly approve!

    Promising review: "I saw a few pictures online of fairy lights with sheer curtains and loved the look. These lights in particular are perfect for what I was looking for. It gives off a warm cozy glow, and really adds a nice touch of oomph to the room." β€”NG

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    9. A memory foam chair, so comfortable your friends will happily join you in your winter hibernation.,

    This seat is essentially a bean bag chair that doesn't have beans β€” it is made with durable foam stuffing and is encased in velvety suede. The chair is lightweight so you can move it from room to room as needed. It also seems to be a big hit with pets. :)

    Promising review: "At first it looked way too small, but if you fluff it up (or kick the crap out of it) the foam pieces inside will break up and expand to fill out the bag. It is comfy to sit in, supports the weight of an adult, doesn't make a lot of noise (it is foam, not Styrofoam), and doesn't get hot (fabric breaths nicely, it isn't like old plastic/vinyl ones from decades ago). I'm going to get another one or two for the living room." β€”M Chateau

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in two sizes and 14 colors).

    10. Chic throw pillow covers featuring delicate tassels, because making your bedroom feel ultra cozy shouldn't be a hassle.


    Can't you just picture hugging this pillow close to your chest while binge-watching The Office all winter? Just note that you will need to pick up some pillow fillers (like these) to complete the look.

    Promising review: "These are beautiful quality, exactly as described, the detail exceeded my expectations. The fringe can get tangled but that's to be expected. I used an insert the exact size of the cover so I highly recommend a larger insert for max fullness." β€”MegLama

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $31.99.

    11. A cozy blanket over 4,300 Amazon reviewers gave a five-star review. If you're not snuggling with this blanket this winter, I'm judging you.


    LOOK AT THAT SNUGGLY PUPPY! What more could you want out of a blanket? This one is machine washable, luxurious, and hypoallergenic. The only issue you may have is one of your friends (or pets) trying to steal it out from under you while you're trying to partake in a long winter's nap.

    Promising review: "This blanket goes above and beyond the average blanket. If you've ever dreamed of sleeping in the [pelts] of 50 rabbits but don't want the guilt of all those rabbit lives, this is your blanket. It's light but warm, not too warm, just warm enough. The cats LOOKED at it and ran to the bed. Before I finished laying it out they started climbing on it like OKAY guys calm down! And it's huge so you can really bundle yourself up or add an extra person comfortably. This blanket just seems sexy and luxurious. I don't really know. It's magical, and it's changed my quality of life for the better." β€”Emma Stanley

    Get it from Amazon for $28.98+ (available in four sizes and 17 colors).

    12. An Amazon Fire Stick so whether you want to watch Harry Potter or every season of Seinfeld, you won't have to leave your room.


    I think nearly every member of my family now has an Amazon Fire TV Stick. My sisters were fighting over one for a while until one caved and finally bought her own β€” that's how much we love this product. Movie marathons will never be the same after buying this little gadget, you can truly watch anything your heart desires. See ya', social life.

    Promising review: "I've been using the FireTV stick for about two years, so I was a little skeptical ordering the 4G stick. That 'skeptical' label can be removed right now. App downloads are much shorter, and the picture is much sharper. So far it hadn't needed re-powering (like when the old stick became stuck). All that might change next week, but right now I think Amazon has hit a home run with this product." β€”J. Henson

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    13. And a universal remote attachment, because no one wants to fumble with three different remotes trying to figure out which one will turn the TV on when they're just trying to relax.


    Promising review: "This is a great little accessory for your Amazon remote. I was tired of always getting my TV controller out to change the volume or input or turn the TV on or off, but this little addition does it all and attaches right to the fire TV remote." β€”TDS

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    14. A luxurious silk pillowcase that'll make you feel like you're staying in a fancy hotel rather than your tiny apartment.


    Silk pillowcases are said to reduce creases in your skin and prevent breakage and tangling in your hair β€” which is why I sleep on one every night. I also just love pretending I'm Duchess Kate Middleton or the Queen of England with my fancy freakin' pillow. This one has over 4.6K five-star reviews on Amazon, so you know it's the real deal.

    Promising review: "After doing some research I found that silk pillowcases could help with frizzy hair. I could not be happier that I bought these because now I can wake up without looking like Mufasa had a bad blow out. Not to mention they are incredibly soft and smooth and I love putting my face on it. Also my boyfriend has noticed a significant decrease in his acne since using this pillow case. I couple this pillow case with a miracle bamboo pillow and it is truly heaven, it has become impossible to get out of bed." β€”Khalysee

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in seven sizes and 31 colors).

    15. An electric fireplace to create the ultimate cozy experience right inside your very own bedroom.


    Is there anything more cozy than relaxing in front of a fireplace? Definitely not. Transform your bedroom into a makeshift ski lodge by bringing in this electric fireplace that actually generates heat. This is going on my wish list right nowwww.

    Promising review: "Wow! For an electric fireplace, this thing is pretty slick. I have done a ton of research because I am really picky about the flame looking as realistic as possible. The appearance of the flames comes from a projection that reflects off of whatever surface is behind the unit. The flames are adjustable mechanically, but can further be adjusted to your liking by moving the unit closer to or farther away from the reflective surface behind it. I feel like this flame is fairly realistic, especially as compared to most other electric fireplaces on the market." β€”dguzi

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99.

    16. A knit weighted blanket unlike any you've probably seen before β€” it's weighted naturally with a layering technique instead of with artificial filling. And it looks SO snuggly!

    mybearaby / Via, Bearaby

    Promising review: "This blanket is great. The material is soft and comfortable. The weight is perfect. What I love the most is that there are no beads used for the weight. I had a previous weighted blanket that the beads came loose after just a few weeks making the blanket useless. This blanket makes you feel like you are wrapped in a soft hug. I sleep so much better and do not wake up as often. I highly recommend this blanket." β€”Jennifer M.

    Get it from Bearaby for $249 (available in 15, 20, or 25 pounds and seven colors).

    17. A set of blackout curtains, because the light of day is over-rated., Amazon

    I don't think my sister knows how to survive without blackout curtains β€” she swears by them. Hang up a set of these bad boys and you'll learn to sleep until noon all winter long. These curtains are made with an energy smart fabric that balances room temperature by insulating against summer heat and winter chills. Amazing!

    Promising review: "Exactly what I was looking for. I have 41" x 41" windows and I used two panels on each one. Stunning color β€” I ordered teal for my coral-and-teal color-schemed bedroom. They block out sunlight very well. I'm so happy! Quick shipping and they came undamaged. Good quality, thick and soft too. Almost feels like velvet." β€”Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $15.80+ ( available in six sizes and 20 colors).

    18. A book-scented candle that'll make you feel like you're spending the winter in the library from Beauty and the Beast.

    homesick / Via

    Ahh, the sweet, musty smell of books. Thanks to this special Homesick candle, we can all bask in the scent of literature while we huddle under our covers all season long. Your bedroom has never smelled better.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95.

    19. An upholstered platform bed to create the illusion that you're lounging in a cloud.


    Winter = snuggling. If you're going to be spending a few months hanging out in bed, it should look good! This headboard and footboard create an elegant aesthetic that just seems very welcoming.

    Promising review: "I love this headboard. There is foam in it so it is comfortable yet firm to lean on when sitting up. It's not overly plush, I still like to have pillows between me and the headboard when sitting up, but it is comfortable to lean on. I did not use a box spring, just a mattress." β€”Jamie

    Get it from Amazon for $202.42+ (available in four sizes and two colors).

    20. Or a canopy bed frame to make you feel like you're a descendant of the royal family while you snuggle up and watch the latest season of The Crown.


    Promising review: "I love it! It took about two hours to put together by myself, everything needed was right in the box. I might replace the screws that connect the center beam to the head and foot board but other than that, I couldn't be happier! Good buy!" β€”Abby

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $194.62+ (available in four sizes and colors).

    21. A laptop tray so you can have your cake and eat it in bed. Or just, you know, watch a movie on your computer.


    If you're truly too cozy to leave your bed this winter, break out this laptop tray and STAY THERE! It has an adjustable top so you can get your tablet/computer to sit on the perfect angle β€” and they make a version that's just for lefties. Game changer!

    Get it from Amazon for $39.86+ (available in three colors).

    22. A macrame swing for the corner of your room β€” just imagine how soothing it would be to curl up with a blanket and nap or read in there. Delightful.,

    Promising review: "Bought this for my 6-year-old's room makeover. She loves it and curls up in it most days. She piles in the pillows and blankets to make the ropes cozy. I had my dad, who built houses for a living, install it for me to make sure it was secure but I think as long as you use a stud finder and have a good screw driver, anyone can do this" β€”KrisSquared

    Get it from Amazon for $58.99.

    23. Or a faux fur stool β€” perfect for when you want to kick your feet up and relax.


    Promising review: "I love this stool! It is a good height and the seat is a good width. It’s a comfortable cushion and quite study. I use it in my massage room for people of all shapes and sizes to use getting their shoes on. I get a lot of comments on my sleek lil' stool. There’s room enough underneath for a basket to slide under too. Happy with the price and quality." β€”michelle gerken

    Get it from Amazon for $53.50.

    24. Lunar garland you'll find yourself ~mooning~ over every time you lay down on your bed after a particularly long day.


    Promising review: "Picture does not do this justice. It's so pretty. I love it." β€”Dana

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two colors and three sizes).

    25. A chenille floor cushion to provide extra (but still SO comfortable) seating for anyone who gets sucked into your I'm-not-leaving-the-house-this-winter plans.


    Promising review: "This comes just as pictured and described. It is comfortable and looks luxurious. It's great for floor seating." β€”AKhan

    Get it from Amazon for $29.74 (available in four colors).

    26. A bedside shelf organizer that'll hold your iPad, phone, charger, and remotes so you'll never have to remove all of your covers in a panic trying to find your seemingly-lost gadget...again.


    Promising review: "This shelf is very compact and a decent replacement for a nightstand, especially if you wear glasses and share your bed with a partner and there isn't a place for a second nightstand. Top shelf is perfect for glasses. The bottom shelf works well for remotes β€” and you can leave your phone in it to charge/disable your morning alarm without climbing over your partner" β€”Andrey

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in two styles).

    27. Hypoallergenic bed sheets, so comfortable they'll have you cancelling plans because you'd much rather be in bed.


    Promising review: "Everyone should own at least a couple of sets of soft, breathable cotton sheets, and these fit the bill. They feel nicer than sets twice the price and wear exceptionally well. The Mellanni bed sheets feel cool and crisp, reminiscent of boutique hotel bedding, making it ideal for warmer temperatures. The sheets were nearly wrinkle-free as I unfolded them and fit my daughters queen bed perfectly. I think this set will make a solid base layer for dressing your bed year-round." β€”RochesterBuyer

    Get them from Amazon for $20.97+ (available in seven sizes and 40 styles).

    28. And a down comforter you can dive right into and turn yourself into a human burrito for the next few cold months.


    Promising review: "Extremely soft and comfortable! I was nervous to buy this online without feeling it, because I'm picky when it comes to bedding, but I don't regret it at all! I put a white duvet cover over it and I feel like I'm staying in an expensive hotel room." β€”Withabook

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in eight sizes and seven colors).

    29. A memory foam mattress topper infused with lavender that'll transform your current one into a soothing, heavenly surface.


    Promising review: "Super comfortable, and soft, and plushy, and amazing. The scent is a little strong for a few days, then it dissipates. Best decision ever! My bed is literally better than a hotel bed, now." β€”LLCoolD

    Get it from Amazon for $35.88+ (available in seven sizes and two styles).

    30. A headboard lamp to provide you with the perfect amount of lighting to either fall asleep by accident or read your favorite book without putting on a too-bright overhead light. Both sound like great options to me, TBH.


    Promising review: "Perfect fit right onto the headboard with no problems. This makes reading in bed much easier on the eyes, and can be turned on or off very easily. I gave it to my mother as a gift and she can relax in bed with a good book and read comfortably." β€”George

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    31. A standing heater/fan combo that'll make sure your safe haven of a bedroom is an ideal temperature no matter what.


    I have this tower and it has been such a wonderful addition to my bedroom. I live in an apartment in which I don't have control over the heat, so it's essential that I have a fan to use in both the warmer and cooler months. That being said, sometimes I'm home and the heat isn't on AT ALL (brrrr) which is where the heater option comes in. It's definitely been a great product to have on hand.

    Get it from Amazon for $99.98.

    32. A "Do Not Disturb" candle featuring a mix of lavender, sandalwood, and sweet vanilla, perfect for anyone whose ideal "best day" includes being left completely alone.

    evilqueen / Via

    Evil Queen candles make my soul happy. I have had this one on my wish list for months now and will likely cave and place an order after writing this. These candles are witty, smell absolutely fantastic, and make for great gifts.

    Get it from Evil Queen for $25.

    33. Or a Himalayan salt lamp you'll love if candles make you sneeze because it'll create a similar soft, warm glow in your room without additional scents.


    This lamp has over 9.8K positive reviews on Amazon, so you should probably stop what you're doing and order it right now.

    Promising review: "Beautiful glow with adjustable lighting brightness. I cannot sleep without this on. I suffer from PTSD and wake up a lot with anxiety or nightmares. I see the beautiful glow and fall right back to sleep. Very therapeutic. Please note that it is very heavy. It has a great base but I put a coaster under it for extra protection from a chance of scratching." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    34. A therapy lamp to recreate the feeling of sitting in the sun, even when you choose to stay indoors all day.


    Promising review: "This light has helped me feel like an actual human again and I could almost cry, honestly. I've only used it a handful of times, but I've already noticed a significant boost in my mood and energy. I enjoy doing chores again, I don't lay in bed when I am off work and cry, I get as excited as my dog when I ask if she wants to go for walks. My friends have noticed an uptick in my mood too, as have my co-workers and family. I've found that I have energy to take up my old hobbies such as writing and drawing again, too." β€”Hailey

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    35. An electric hand warmer that'll keep you feeling nice 'n' toasty even when the weather outside is as cold as your heart.


    Promising review: "Excellent product, useful for keeping my hands warm when typing at work. Heat lasts around two hours and takes around three hours to charge." β€”Firebox Customer

    Get it from Firebox for $38.99.

    36. And a total body pillow, because hibernating is even better when you have someone (or something) to cuddle with.


    Promising review: "I have actually replaced all of my other pillows with this giant one and I have never slept better. I have already told my husband that I refuse to sleep without it, ever, and if anything happens to this one, you better believe I will be ordering a new one immediately. I have a lot of trouble sleeping due to a wonderful mix of insomnia and naturally running really warm. This pillow separates my husband and I if we need it since I am pretty sure we are both furnaces, and I can sneak the end between my legs so my thighs don't touch (I'm sure I'm not the only one that gets uncomfortable from this) but then I also get to sneak my arm under the top part of the pillow, while it wraps gently around my neck. If you get in the right position with it between the legs and around the neck, it even puts a comforting light pressure on your back so you feel like you're in a cocoon." β€”Skc

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