    31 Things From Walmart That'll Help You Get A Good Night's Sleep

    You almost won't want to hit snooze anymore.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A set of shredded memory foam pillows so you can rest well.


    Promising review: “I like foam pillows because they hold their shape and never have to be fluffed. However most of the foam pillows I have had in the past are too firm or perhaps too full of foam bits. These are just right.” —Dandax

    Price: $18.99+ (available in three sizes)

    2. A cuddly hippo that projects a soothing starry night sky because it's always easy to fall asleep under the stars. It plays peaceful lullabies and nature sounds designed for babies, but you may find yourself stealing it once your little one is asleep.


    Promising review: “Love this little guy. It plays so many sounds and the lights change colors. It's so relaxing I find myself falling asleep in the rocking chair. I love the owl and the crickets. The little guys fall a sleep easy now. I put it on a dresser. I would recommend this item” —Logan

    Price: $24.96

    3. A mood light alarm clock to wake you up with soothing nature sounds instead of a harsh alarm (though it has that option too if you're a deep sleeper).


    Promising review: “Very few clocks allow more than one sound to wake up to; this clock has five nature sounds. Yes you can turn off the light completely, and it has two alarms — one to set sounds and one to set the light preferences. You can set the brightness of the light, or set for gradual brightness. You can also fall asleep to the same nature sounds for a set time limit. Fully featured. Great alarm clock.” —Jexred

    Price: $19.99

    4. An 8-inch hybrid gel and memory foam mattress for lots of luxurious rest.


    Promising review:Very easy to put together and super comfortable. This is a very good value for the price.” —Mommyofathreeyearold

    Price: $89.99+ (available in six sizes)

    5. It's Time to Sleep, My Love, a beautifully illustrated relaxing nighttime read that'll have you snoozing in no time. Who says you have to be a kid to read a kid's book?


    Promising review: “This is a lullaby in book form. It is soothing with sweet rhymes and tranquil imagery. The surreal illustrations feature twinkles on most pages that look like you are really among the stars as you read it.” —MelindaBoland

    Price: $7.80

    6. A three-way showerhead so you can wash the day away and relax. Studies show that bathing before bed can actually help you fall asleep.


    Promising review: “So happy with my new showerhead. It is much better than the more expensive one that I had before. So easy to install.” —Bobbi

    Price: $18.99

    7. A journal because studies also show that writing down your list of to-dos the night before could potentially lead to an earlier bedtime. Plus, there's plenty of space for all your other thoughts or even a record of your dreams. And you can take it almost anywhere as it's weatherproof!


    Promising review: “Excellent product to keep close to me for notes, reminders, data logging, and not having to worry about the elements.” —Babu

    Price: $15.95

    8. A sound machine to help you to forget about all your worries (*cough cough* your annoying and loud roommate *cough cough*) and get you to sleep in a jiffy.


    Promising review: "I am sooo glad I bought this; I have never slept better!! I wish I had this sooner. I would've loved to have tried it on my son when he was a baby. I prefer the ocean sound my self however the rain and summer night are good for me too. I love that it has a timer, but you can also leave it on all night so that's great also.” —Crystal

    Price: $19.99

    9. Or a noise-defusing fan for blocking out irritating sounds *and* keeping you cool under all those blankets.


    Promising review: “I love these fans. I actually sleep with it on year round to block out the neighbors noise.” —Romans1616

    Price: $14.94+ (available in two sizes)

    10. A padded sleep mask that'll block out all the light.


    Promising review: “It goes on your face very smoothly and blocks all light.” —Laura

    Price: $6.15

    11. An on-off switch with a dimmer slide so you can lower the light level as it gets later in the evening and set a relaxing, sleepy ambience as you prepare for bed.

    Walmart / Via Walmart

    Promising review: “We got this so we would be able to dim our living room lights. It was easy and simple to install, looks great, and I love that the switch part is flatter and sticks out less than others! It is also easier to clean than a traditional switch!” -Laura H

    Price: $14.92

    12. An over-the-counter sleep aid because sometimes it feels like your brain just won’t shut off.


    Promising review: “The only thing that my wife has found that helps her sleep, with no side or after effects!” —gkgeckos

    13. A box of lavender-scented nasal strips to stop your own snoring from waking you up.

    15. A high-density foam yoga mat that'll help you stretch our sore, achy muscles, reduce your stress, improve your breathing, and relax your mind so you're prepared for sleep.


    Promising review: “I have tried MANY yoga mats and this one is the best I've used. It is extremely comfortable to lie on, easy to tote to and from anywhere you go, very soft on the skin, and seems to be made with quality materials. It's over six feet long as well, which is an added bonus. I've already recommended to several family members who have HARD yoga mats that make you feel like you're just lying on a hard floor.” —Rockyrob

    Price: $7.98+ (available in three thicknesses an seven colors)

    16. An air purifier so mold, dust, dirt, pollen, and dander you can't see in the air doesn't cause congestion that makes it nearly impossible for you to sleep. Its filtration system removes 99.9% of airborne pollutants so you can breathe easy.


    Promising review: “I really enjoy it and would highly recommend it to anybody with breathing problems. I sure do sleep a lot better at night with it!” —Tuggers

    Price: $129.85

    17. A moisture-wicking mattress pad because sometimes you just want to fall asleep curled up under a bunch of blankets without worrying that you're going to wake up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat.


    Promising review: “Love this mattress pad. It is quite thin but for the price, but it is highly worth it. It protects my mattress. The other day some juice was spilled on it and it did not soak through the mattress pad. I was able to throw this mattress pad in the washer and it was still in one piece when it came out. I even put it in the dryer to see how it would hold up and it came out fine.” —Katalyna

    Price: $9.96+ (available in four sizes)

    18. A kettle to heat up your water in hurry so you wind down before bed with a hot cup of decaffeinated tea.


    Promising review: “I really enjoy this tea kettle. It pours without spilling all over and water heats up quickly. The aqua color is beautiful! I plan on buying one for each of my sisters too!” —yeshuatheonlywaytoheaven

    Price: $19.48

    19. A plush blanket for keeping your body warm so you can enjoy at least eight hours of cozy, uninterrupted sleep.


    Promising review: “Being completely honest here, this is by far the softest blanket I have ever owned. It's so plush and soft; it's hard to keep my children and my husband away from it! It's a queen-sized blanket, so it is very big and I can share — if I want to!” —Sim07

    Price: $18.97+ (available in two sizes and four colors)

    20. An air freshener that'll get rid of any lingering odors that could keep you from a good night’s rest.


    Promising review: “No more funky smells in this house! Living in a home with teenage boys is not for the faint of heart. Especially with all those smells! This is my go-to product! I always have several on hand to neutralize the odor and they work flawlessly! —JANEL

    Price: $4.95

    21. A bottle of OLLY sleep gummies so you can finally drift off thanks to their sleep-inducing blend of L-Theanine, chamomile, and lemon balm — three ingredients that boost relaxation and increase your sleep quality.

    @ollynutrition / Via

    Promising review: "I love using my Olly Sleep Gummies! They are the most effective sleep gummies that I've used. I've used many different kinds and this is the only brand that has not made me feel groggy in the morning. They allow me to fall asleep quickly without tossing and turning. I get a great night of sleep each time and wake up feeling ready for the day! They have a nice and light flavor that's perfect for using at bedtime. The texture is great! I think the packaging is so attractive too!" —CourtTheSport

    Price: $12.42 for 50

    22. An argan oil and lavender bath bomb because a luxurious bath before bed is an excellent way to encourage good sleep.

    @lovebeautyandplanet / Via

    Promising review: “Oh my goodness. I loved these bath bombs. I received these during a very stressful week and I automatically tried them. The fragrance is refreshing, not too heavy, and overall smells really nice and calming. I like that it doesn't leave a film on my bathtub or make a huge dye mess either. I thought the oil really helped my skin feel moisturized when I got out of my bath. Like I could feel the moisture. I have pretty sensitive skin when it comes to fragrances, mostly on my legs, but these bath bombs didn't irritate me at all. I can't wait to try other fragrances if they have them. If they don't, I'm definitely going to purchase more.” —smashedgold

    Price: $6.98 for two

    23. A home gym system to channel your before-bed anxieties and stresses into a more productive outlet. Exercising before bed may also help you enjoy a deeper, uninterrupted z's.


    Promising review: “Built solid and was easy to put together. Honestly it has the best set of instructions I have seen in a long long time. Putting the main parts together was pretty fast and easy.” —Daniel

    Price: $299

    24. A bath caddy for reading, listening to music on your phone, and having a calming bath before bed.


    Promising review:This is by far the nicest bath caddy/tray I have ever owned! I love how many different compartments it has! It makes it so easy to relax with a book.” —Katie

    Price $34.99

    25. An essential oil diffuser that'll fill your room with calming scents and get you in the mood for sleep. (Just be careful which essential oils you use if you have pets as some of them are toxic to our fur babies!)


    Promising review: “I've had mine for two years with no problems. When traveling we take it with us and use it every night. Have had no problems at all. When this one bits the dust I will get another. Well worth the money!!” —Marty

    Price: $14.88

    26. A wedge pillow so your upper body is more upright when you sleep. This can help prevent the acid reflux and snoring that's keeping you up at night. Or, hold it between your knees to keep your spine aligned and reduce pressure on your back.


    Promising review: "Great pillow. It has helped so much. It is so soft but firm at the same time. I got it for my husband who has trouble breathing in his sleep. He has slept so wonderfully since getting the pillow." —Jasmin

    Price: $39.99

    27. Some blackout curtains because no one ever said “I like bright sunshine when I am trying to sleep.”


    Promising review: “This curtain blocks the light great and does a wonderful job of keeping the kitchen much cooler. Very pleased with the purchase.” —Reogar

    Price: $19.59+ (available in two lengths and four colors)

    28. A window AC unit to cool your room, help you sleep well, *and* save you money on your electricity bill.


    Promising review: “It runs pretty quiet — quieter than most floor fans. Easy installation. Cools beyond the stated capacity.” —JDSRATED

    Price: $139

    29. A set of exceptionally soft Egyptian cotton sheets for a good night's rest that feels like you're sleeping on a cloud.


    Promising review: “We LOVE these sheets! They are the softest highest quality sheets we have ever owned and we always buy very high quality expensive sheets. Buy two set and you will probably never have to buy another pair!” —jlw5647

    Price: $68.44+ (available in four sizes and four colors)

    30. A pair of blue light-blocking glasses that'll come in handy if you stare at a screen all day. (Blue light affects the production of melatonin, a hormone that plays a big role in sleep.)


    Promising review: "A must-have for anyone that works a desk job. My eyes used to get so strained from constantly staring at screens at my day job. Beyond that, even my personal time was primarily spent using screens for entertainment and it was beginning to hinder my ability to sleep." —RonReviews

    Price: $47.17

    31. A Fitbit Versa 2 so you can track your sleep habits and figure out if things are going wrong.


    Promising review: "Love this Fitbit! It works with Alexa, which is such a wonderful addition to Fitbit. Tracks steps, sleep, heart rate, exercise, etc. Text messages and calls come through and you can respond with voice to text! AMAZING! Can't say enough positives about this Fitbit! Go get one!" —AshFen

    Price: $199.95 (available in three colors)
