    2. Or a Bearaby weighted blanket if you're looking for the same soothing weight, but not-just-right home decor ~keeps you up at night~. This chunky knit looks straight out of an interior design mag!

    3. A few sheets of LED-dimming stickers to finally keep those pesky router, TV, clock, and other electronic lights from ruining your ~room of complete darkness~.

    4. Two-tone PJs made of a moisture-wicking material that'll feel cool against your skin... so you don't toss and turn sweating while you're still awake at 2 a.m. *and* help you not wake up in a pool of sweat night after night.

    5. And if you want to go all the way with the sleep-cool fabric, a set of 100% bamboo sheets that'll feel silky soft and oh-so comfortable no matter the time of year. They say bamboo feels like twice the thread count of cotton, who knew?!

    The set of white sheets with grey piping

    6. A lavender, mugwort, and chamomile–infused dream balm you can rub into your feet, wrist, or chest for an immediate ~doze~ of relaxation.

    7. A mechanical white noise machine (it produces white noise by creating rushing air, not fake electric "ocean sounds") to pleasantly drown out your neighbors, Scary House Creaking Noises, and that annoyingly cheerful morning birdsong. Just twist to adjust the volume — no weird fake ocean sounds here! Just 100% true white noise.

    8. Or an electronic sound machine with 20 sound settings including white noise, fan, campfire, rain, brook, and cricket — all with no looping (and no...pause... when it loops) for minimal annoyance while staring at the ceiling, wide awake.

    9. A Lasko tower fan to provide just the right amount of white noise AND keep your room perfectly cool for optimal sleeping — without taking up too much floor space. This baby has three speed settings and powerful air flow so you stay comfortable all night long.

    10. A Philips sunrise-mimicking light and alarm clock, because not only does it wake you up gradually and naturally, but it also has a *reverse* sunset mode that slowly fades away, while you fade out of consciousness yourself.

    The clock during the beginning of wakeup, with a dim orange/red glow to mimic a sunrise

    11. A Kindle Paperwhite so you can enjoy a few chapters without keeping the lights on, helping you (your bed partner) wind down without too much light waking up your brain. Turn the TV off and get off your phone — this'll get you right off to dreamland.

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

    13. Or if acne struggles are keeping you up at night, a pillow spray designed to kill zit-causing bacteria so you don't have to change out your pillowcases as often. AND, thanks to its soothing lavender scent, you'll be off to a solid dose of beauty sleep in no time.

    14. An adaptive foam Tuft & Needle mattress that'll never sag or get uncomfortable. Just pure body-sinking-in comfort. Good luck getting out of bed!

    15. Or if you're not looking for a new mattress, a hypoallergenic bamboo mattress pad to create a breathable, cloudlike layer over your mattress to make "sleeping hot" a thing of the past.

    16. A pair of stylish blue-light-blocking glasses to make your evening screen time less disruptive to your sleep.

    17. 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.

    The box of tea

    18. Or a pouch of chamomile herbal tea with *no* caffeine so you can have a soothing sip no matter how far into the afternoon or evening hours you've trickled.

    19. A jar of Olly Restful Sleep gummies formulated with melatonin and l-theanine, lemon balm, and chamomile to help you naturally drift off and support your sleep cycle. And hello, nighttime snack!

    My photo of the gummies with the text "most productive bedtime snack ever?"

    20. A lightweight, contoured sleeping mask that'll block every beam of light and never press down on your eyes, so you'll completely forget you're even wearing it.

    21. Or a Nodpod, aka a weighted blanket-sleep mask hybrid designed to put a comforting and relaxing pressure on your head — without the feeling of elastic.

    22. 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'.

    23. A herbal sleep pillow, because (::Amy Poehler voice::) this isn't a regular pillow, it's a COOL pillow. It's filled with lavender (and you can add four other additional herb scents if you like) to help you drift right off — just tuck it under your pillow or hang it from your headboard!

    24. A humidifier and essential oil diffuser designed to look like the night sky for a whole universe of relaxation — use lavender or your favorite nighttime-friendly essential oil for an extra boost.

    25. A pair of insulating blackout curtains to keep precious heat and air conditioning IN and annoying sunlight OUT — or even worse, the lights your neighbors refuse to turn off at 3 a.m. that are somehow brighter than the sun.

    26. 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.

    27. A freshly brewed cup of ~moon milk~ — aka a bedtime drink made of warm milk, honey, spices, and ashwagandha, an adaptogen plant used in Ayurvedic healing that can help with stress, insomnia, and fatigue.

    28. A U-shaped body pillow that'll be your cuddle buddy and grown-up stuffed animal companion to keep your body aligned and give you a comforting, cocooning sensation to help you relax and doze right off.

    29. The Nocturnal Journal, a creative notebook to help any restless mind late at night — it's filled with interactive pages and reusable activities to de-stress, unwind, and just chill out so you can get to sleep ASAP.

    30. A table lamp with multiple brightness and color options so you can sleep soundly after reading in bed. As you head towards bedtime, opt for warmer light colors!

    31. A mega-fluffy down alternative all-season duvet insert, because being cozy isn't just for the wintertime. This has weight that's perfect for cuddling under year-round; the over 50,000 people who rated this 5 stars can't be wrong!

    32. And/or a "365" blanket designed to be used, you guessed it, 365 days a year. Its thin, oversized (so you don't wake up freezing when your partner steals the covers) and temperature-regulating so you can snooze in comfort all. year. long.
