Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. 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~.

    2. A weighted blanket reviewers swear by to help with anxiety, stress, and insomnia. The just-heavy-enough pressure can help you relax and feel comforted enough to drift off.

    3. Two-tone PJs made of a moisture-wicking material that'll feel cool against your skin... and help you not wake up in a pool of sweat.

    4. 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.

    5. 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.

    6. 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.

    7. A Kindle Paperwhite so you can enjoy a few chapters without keeping the lights on, helping both (you and 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.

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

    9. 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!

    10. 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.

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

    12. 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.

    13. 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.

    14. 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!

    15. 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.

    16. 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.

    17. 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'.

    18. 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.

    19. A reviewer-certified squeak-free bedframe for anyone whose restless bed partner rustling in the night is keeping them from getting any real rest.

    20. A soothing ceiling projector with eight different light settings to turn anyone's room (adult or child alike) into a magical star show...and soothe and distract you from going over your to-do list for the thousandth time.

    21. A pair of insulating blackout curtains to keep precious heat 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.

    22. 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.

    23. Or an *over*-the-head relaxation pillow filled with a lightweight plush and a curved design to block out light and sound. Want to scream into a pillow when your partner snores? This might help.

    24. 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.

    25. 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.

    26. The Nocturnal Journal, a creative notebook formatted 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.

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

    28. 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 9,000 people who rated this five stars can't be wrong!

    29. A high-density memory foam pillow ergonomically designed to align your knees and hips to reduce pressure on your lower back. That means less waking in the night in pain (according to Amazon reviewers) and easier time falling asleep.

    It's time to turn off your inner Bethenny Frankel.
