    Promising review: "I am sooooooooooooo happy with this fluffy, furry, very soft throw! The color is exactly how it was shown. I'm also glad to hear that it is machine washable! I would DEFINITELY purchase this again!" —Connie

    Your doggo has been Very Good, so make sure Santa treats them right.

    Get it from Amazon for Amazon or Jet for $12.92.

    Promising review: "Great soft fleece blanket, good size and great price. Looks exactly as pictured. My chiweenie pup loves to cuddle in it. It stayed soft even after multiple washes and did not fade." —heyitsme

    Promising review: "Now that winter is over, every morning around 4am, a hundred idiot birds of varying species like to perch on the trees outside my house. There, they loudly compete with each other with various chirps and warbles. Since a man sort of needs sleep to function, I contemplated either chopping down every tree in the area, or shooting enough of the birds until the others got the point. For a variety of legal and practical reasons, I quickly nixed those ideas and decided to give this white noise sound generator a go. So far, so good. Now, it's only my job that drives me nuts, and not the moronic birds waking me up before I go to said job." —Aydan

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's full review of it here (#5!).

    5. A lightweight yet plush union suit featuring an embroidered inscription for anyone on the naughty list who's spending sleepless nights worried about the prospect of finding coal in their stocking.

    The inscription reads, "Santa, I can explain!" And you better.

    Get it from Aerie for $41.96 (originally $59.95). Sizes: XS–XXL.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this onesie!! I have several onesies in my collection and this has become my new favorite. I just receive this one in the mail today and it fits perfectly! It looks exactly like the picture — thin, yet the material is super soft." —Shannon

    6. A light-up sleep aid device for the person who has tried everything else. It'll help you relax and clear your mind for a night of restful sleep — just breathe in as the light projected on the ceiling grows, and breathe out as it shrinks.,

    Get it from Amazon for $59 or The Grommet for $58.95.

    Promising review: "I've had LIFELONG insomnia, managed mostly with meds. I also work in sleep medicine so i know a lot about sleep and have pretty good sleep hygiene. I've tried meditation for years and usually have an opposite response (Blame ADD). I can feel myself getting stressed as I'm 'emptying' my mind. I faired better with guided meditation, but often I'd fall asleep just to wake up seconds later because some distracting pan flute would come on. This product lets me avoid that. It's blessedly silent. It's not too bright. If you get distracted it's no big deal, you pick up on the next cycle. Watching the blue light ebb and flow is relaxing and I don't have to turn it off and when I feel sleepy I can just close my eyes and go to sleep. I don't have to envision any fluffy clouds. This is a very useful part of any isomniac's arsenal. It's also super portable and wouldn't disturb a bed partner." —HM

    7. A lavender and chamomile aromatherapy mist to spray on everything and make your bedroom a ~Cave of Slumbers~.

    It's made with all natural essential oils that'll help you feel calm and relaxed as you breathe it in. Spray it on blankets, pillows, clothes — you can even spray it on yourself!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.20.

    Promising review: "This product is great. I spray it on my pillow at night and it helps me relax into sleep rather than toss and turn. It is also a nice fragrance around the house. So happy that I tried this. I am very pleased!" —Martha N.

    8. A cushy pillow shaped like a loaf of bread so you can prepare for winter like a champ. #Carboloading.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.49. Available in three sizes.

    9. A bulk box of Sleepytime herbal tea; with a soothing blend of chamomile, spearmint, and lemongrass, it'll help you wind down at the end of the day and prepare for...well...sleepytime.

    Get a jumbo pack of six boxes of 40 tea bags from Amazon for $20.98. You can also get individual boxes of 40 tea bags from Walmart for $4.20 each.

    Promising review: "Sleepy time tea is amazing! It smells and tastes great and helps we become relaxed and ready for bed. I sleep without any problems and feel well rested the next day!" —Chris

    10. Cozyphones, a fleece headband with flat headphones built right in, because sleeping with earbuds in your ears is damn painful, but your "go to sleep" playlist is kickin'.

    ::Carefully cultivates sleep playlist based on "daydream" story I make up to soothe myself to sleep::

    Get them from Amazon for $14.97 each or a two-pack for $24.95. Also available in friggin' adorable animal versions for kids!

    Promising review: "Just received these headphones, used them last night, and I am quite pleased -- pleased with the sound, pleased with the comfort. I bought a pair for my husband as well, as he listens to podcasts to drift off to sleep, I listen to music and meditations all thru the night, and comfort is extremely important. These are. They are lightweight, didn't know I had them on, and the sound is clear and clean w/o noise or interference. I look forward to using them. They're perfect for our needs. Can't ask for more! Thank you." —Marilyn

    Get the queen size from Amazon for $189. Sizes: twin–California king.

    Promising review: "Bed of magic! I received this bed a week ago, let it sit for 48 hours and I drag my tail every morning to get out of bed. I LOVE this bed!!! My husband hasn't complained about his back in a solid week...

    "30 days later: I LOVE THIS BED! I literally have to peel myself out of bed every morning!! I sleep soundly ALL NIGHT!! no more toss and turn!! I'm very happy with this product! I WILL DEFINITELY Purchase from this buyer for all future purchases when I start replacing other beds in the house!! Fits right on top of my box spring which was great!! I didn't have to change my entire bed.. just the mattress!!" —Amazon Customer

    13. A "resting bitch face" sleeping mask so NO ONE will bother waking you up. Ever. Or they'll face your waking bitch face, which is even worse.

    Get it from Farigoods on Etsy for $22.

    Promising review: "Love it! So cute. Fits my face well (and I have a biiiig nose), is lightweight, and doesn’t make my face hot!" —Erin Ranks

    It even has a built-in speaker you can hook up to your phone (audio cable in included) for a fully ~mesmerizing~ experience.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.81 or Walmart for $20.99.

    Promising review: "Literally, the first thing I said when I plugged it in was, 'HOLY S***.' It was that cool. I was skeptical cause its so cheap (price wise) but its a little solid night light that gives a BIG presentation. if its projecting on the ceiling it curves on the 90 degree angles, its cool as hell man. Then on top of that, it has an aux port for playing music. I got this for the kids...but I might be using it more." —Gilbert Hernandez

    15. A pair of insulating blackout curtains to keep precious heat IN and annoying sunlight OUT — darkness + warmth are two very key nap ingredients.

    Get two panels from Amazon for $24.95. Available in two lengths (longer curtains pictured above).

    Promising review: "These curtains are just what I was looking for — they are both beautiful and functional!! They really help keep out the heat and the light. I'm very impressed with the soft, beautiful fabric of these curtains. I am a very happy customer!!" —Furr-tastic

    16. A 12-pound weighted blanket (it's called a calm-forter) that'll feel just like a soothing hug for an added dose of security. And unlike other weighted versions, this just looks like a regular fleece blanket a with a silky side and a nubby side for fully customizable relaxation.

    Get it from Amazon or Walmart for $199. Available in five colors.

    Promising review: "I purchased this blanket for my 16-year-old daughter. I have been wanting to get one for her for a while now as she has always had difficulty falling asleep and waking up feeling rested. She is entering her senior year of high school and struggles with a lot of worry, anxiety, and overwhelming feelings that teenagers and adults can experience. The color is gorgeous and the weight of the blanket (12lbs.) is perfect. It is weighted enough to make you feel comfortable and cozy underneath it but not too heavy as to make you feel constricted or overheated. Last night was her first night with the blanket and so as you can imagine, when I heard her wake, I hurried into her room to ask how she slept! I am happy to say that she loves it, and that 'the blanket is so comfy and feels like a big hug!' She woke up feeling rested and is excited to have it to take with her to college next year. I am thinking of purchasing another one in the near future. It is well worth the price and my daughter and I are so happy with the quality and comfort of this item." —N.Carolina1

    17. A pair of blackout sunnies so you can secretly snooze the day after the company holiday party.

    Why are you wearing sunglasses at your desk? IDK man — you're on your own coming up with that part.

    Get them from ThinkGeek for $19.99.

    18. A tee or two to help make your priorities well known. Tbh, these are better and easier than just wearing a sign that says "do not disturb.",

    Get them from Amazon: the left tee for $9.99+ (sizes: S–3XL) and the right tee for $19.99 (available in six colors, and men's, women's, and kid's sizes).

    19. A beeswax, lavender, and lemon sleep balm you can rub into your temples and pulse points for an immediate ~doze~ of relaxation.

    Get it from Asos for $6.50.

    20. A Goldilocks-approved pillow filled with shredded memory foam so your head is never too high (like traditional memory foam pillows that don't sink in enough) or too low (like the decade-old down alternative pillows on your bed right now). It's juuuuust right.

    Get them from Amazon for $39.99 each. Also available in king-size pillows.

    Promising review: "I bought one of these pillows because neither my husband nor I sleep soundly at night. I tried one first, and liked it so well that I purchased one for my husband. Last night was his first time to use it. He volunteered this morning that he 'slept hard' last night! He added he didn't remember ever waking up during the night — which was a first! The interesting part is this: I didn't tell him that he was trying out a new pillow. I wanted to test it on him and see if he would make any comment about his sleep (usually he COMPLAINS about his sleep). I definitely recommend this pillow — whether you are a side sleeper (like me) or a back sleeper (like hubby)!" —Amazon Customer

    21. A sleep-monitoring Fitbit Charge 2 so you can scientifically optimize your whole routine to make sure you get a full eight (or 18... You do you) hours of shuteye per night.

    Yeah, it also monitors your workouts and pulse rate, shows you call, text, and calendar notifications, functions as an alarm, keeps track of your steps per day, and calms you with breathing exercises too...but let's focus on the sleeping thing for now.

    Get it from Amazon or Walmart for $129. Available in six colors and two sizes.

    Promising review: "As everyone knows, it's a great tool to monitor workouts and encourages movement, but I have to say my favorite feature is the sleep tracking. I've always known that I'm not a great sleeper, but having the graphs to show when I'm awake, in light sleep, REM, and deep sleep is very informative. When I sleep well and the sleep tracker confirms it, I do what I can to replicate those particular conditions (i.e., room temp, specific white noise sound, use of blankets, etc.). It has a vibrating alarm designed to keep you from waking a partner up when you need to get up. My husband sleeps like a rock (and wore this one night for kicks, which confirmed he's a VERY sound sleeper), but I like having it because it feels more considerate." —Chellebelle

    22. A Tauntaun sleeping bag that was warm enough to keep Luke alive on Hoth, so it'll definitely tuck you in and help you dream of a galaxy far, far away. Might I suggest bringing this while camping out for the midnight showing of The Last Jedi?

    Be your own Han Solo, and rescue YOURSELF by buying this.

    Get it from ThinkGeek for $132.99 (originally $149.99).

    23. A U-shaped synthetic down body pillow so you can stay in bed all winter without ever getting uncomfortable. Just use it to prop yourself up while reading (or day napping) while the sun is out, and cuddle with it at night for an utterly comfy and secure sleep.

    Get it from Amazon for $109.95.

    Promising review: "Bought this pillow for my gf, who has been dealing with back issues and insomnia for awhile now. Although, she's not preggo, she said this is the best pillow she's ever had, like being hugged all night. Still haven't gotten a chance to try it out for myself, she won't give it up. Might just have to buy my own!" —BBCS08

    24. A creative journal to help any restless mind late at night — it's filled with interactive pages and reusable activities to de-stress, unwind, and just chill the eff out so you can get to sleep ASAP.

    Remember that thing you did in third grade? You know how you stayed up half the night last week thinking about it? That's over now.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.87, Barnes and Noble for $11.69, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

    Promising review: "Lee Crutchley's book is the literary answer for insomnia. This is the perfect book to keep by your bedside when counting sheep just isn't doing the trick to send you off to dreamland. Open The Nocturnal Journal to any page and let your imagination run wild. It's a good idea to keep a pencil or pen handy to answer the questions posed on some pages. By exploring some of the thoughts that are keeping you awake will definitely help the reader calm them down, answer them or help put them to bed so sleep will come more easily." —Dee Long

    25. A floofy reversible comforter you can use alone or as a duvet insert — and because of the quilting, the stuffing won't all migrate to the bottom, so it'll keep you the right amount of toasty all year long. Would make a great gift from you to you, amirite?

    It's surprisingly lightweight, so you'll have far less trouble wrangling it into your duvet cover.

    Get a queen size duvet insert from Amazon for $31.99. Sizes: twin–California king. Available in five colors.

    Promising review: "What a nice treat! The comforter arrived earlier than expected, and it was just what I hoped it would be. It was lightweight which made it easy to handle, as opposed to some that require multiple persons to lift. The cotton "hooks" on each corner provided a way to keep a duvet cover in place. What I love the most, however, is that it keeps my husband warm without overheating me." —Sharon

    26. A hoodie-topped neck pillow, because leaving the house to travel by plane, train, or automobile this holiday season should NOT STOP THE SNOOZE.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95. Also available in black.

    Promising review: "Amazing product! Super comfortable and the hood is perfect for tightening, covering you eyes to sleep. Honestly a really good thing to keep around if you get migraines since you're about to block out light. Definitely a good buy!" —4n6geek

    27. A holiday-scented candle (with notes of pine, pomander, and sugar cookies) so you can ~dream~ of a white Christmas, even in February when all the snow is crusty and gross.

    Just make sure you BLOW IT OUT before drifting off!!!!!!!

    Get one of BuzzFeed's Homesick Candles from Amazon for $29.95.

    PSST!...BuzzFeed makes money if you buy this!

    28. A onesie for anyone who really wants to lean into the sloth lifestyle, moving slowly and sleeping 15 or more hours a day. It even has removable glove sleeves that look like three-toed claws so you can really hunker down and stay warm.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+. Sizes: S–XL. Available in 17 different animals and colors.

    Promising review: "BEST. PURCHASE. EVER. Comfy as ever, keeps you super warm, and is ADORABLE too!" —Amazon Customer

    29. And, of COURSE, a hat with a pillow attached right to the back, because if you can't stay in bed all day, just try to bring the bed with you, I guess.

    Get it from Apollo Box for $48.98.

    Responsibilities at the door? Say ~pooh pooh~.
