    We're breaking up with bad sleep.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors.

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

    1. A pack of light-dimming stickers so bright alarm clocks and flashing electronics don't distract you from sleep.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the best thing you never knew you needed. I own a digital clock with the numbers displayed in red LED light, and every night I've blocked the light with a cover so it doesn't shine in my eyes as I sleep. Silly I know, but I like my room pitch black and cave-like. On a whim I bought this product. OH MY GOD! Game changer!! For the first night EVER I didn't have to cover the clock display before I went to bed!! I had no idea how big a difference this little dimmer could make, but I'm more than pleased with the result. I can still see the time display just fine, but now my room is a happy cave! Some commenters argue you could get the same effect using electrical tape but this product is easy to remove and doesn't leave a sticky residue at all, which can't be said for most tapes. I did notice a slight lag in response when I covered my TV LED sensor, so if you're trying to block something that actually senses inputs I would maybe not suggest this. Other than that, excellent product!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a sheet of more than 100 stickers of varying shapes and sizes Amazon for $5.48. These larger dimming sheets from Amazon are $8.29 for two 6-by-3-inch stickers and work wonders if you're trying to cover a larger surface area, like a clock face.

    2. A bottle of OLLY sleep gummies that'll encourage your body to rest with their blend of L-Theanine, chamomile, and lemon balm — three ingredients that boost relaxation and increase your sleep quality.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've tried other sleep products like the sleep drinks and other gummies but I keep coming back for these! They've worked the best out of any of the others I've tried! I fall asleep fast and stay asleep for the whole night. I also wake up feeling great! No hangover feeling at all!" —Jaime Arnold

    Get a bottle of 50 gummies from Amazon for $11.99+ (also available in bottles of 60 and 70).

    3. A caffeine-free valerian tea to sip while you wind down with a good book. Avoiding caffeine after 2 p.m. gives your body enough time to work it out of your system so you can sleep easy.

    @tradmedicinals / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: This tea works exactly as advertised. Sometimes I will lie in bed for hours because I can't shut my brain off enough to fall asleep. When I drink a cup of this before bed, I fall asleep and stay asleep all through the night! Steep the tea as directed for the best results: for 10 to 15 minutes, in a cup covered to keep the steam from escaping. This will give you the most of the valerian root goodness! I feel like it takes me a full 30 to 60 minutes after drinking this tea for me to fall asleep, so give yourself time to steep the tea and drink it. Valerian root can be bitter, but this tea is blended with other herbs to make the taste is quite pleasant. The results are worth every penny." —The Degamos

    Get a box of 16 tea bags from Amazon for $4.34.

    4. A sleep-enhancing balm for anyone who's looking for a natural and organic option for beating bad sleep. It's made with chamomile, clary sage, valerian, lemon balm, lavender, extra virgin olive oil, and beeswax, so you can feel good about putting it on your skin.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a difficult time being able to wind down from my stressful job at night and fall asleep, and I don’t want to take any oral sleep aids or meds, so I thought I’d give this balm a try. Just a little dab of the salve goes a long way! Every night right before bed, I apply some on my forehead and temples, gently massaging in a circular motion, and then to my wrists where my pulse is. The scent is very pleasant, a natural, herbal fragrance. Right away I notice a soothing, cooling sensation where I’m rubbing the balm into. The ointment itself feels clean and non-greasy going on! I’ve really benefited from using this balm. I find the combination of fragrance and cooling really relaxes and calms me as I’m resting!" —Janine Jones

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in six scents).

    5. A three-layer door stopper that'll block out the sounds of annoying roommates while also maintaining the temperature in your room. Installation is easy: simply cut the strip to size and attach it to your door using the built-in adhesive backing.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’m renting an apartment and my front door doesn’t brush up against the floor. There was about an inch gap which was annoying because it meant light, noise, and bugs could get in. Ever since I’ve installed this, I’ve had almost no bugs, no light, and so much less sound! It’s great. The sound-blocking is especially amazing because my bedroom is near the front door and I hated hearing my neighbors conversations clear as day in the stairwell. It’s not totally noise cancelling but it’s so much better." —airazedy

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four colors).

    6. A jar of contour ear plugs to make it easier to drift off when you live with a roommate who insists on using speakerphone for all of their calls.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are honestly the answer to my prayers for a good night's sleep. The first few weeks of living on campus sucked because one of my roommates doesn't understand the idea of being quiet when others are sleeping and construction trucks decided that 4 a.m. would be the perfect time to ride around in reverse, beeping away. I went from rudely being woken up before I needed to sleeping soundly until my own alarm goes off. They expand very comfortably in my ear, and, for the most part, they stay in all night. The contour really makes a difference. I've been able to use the same pair for quite a while and they still work great. Once they start falling out in your sleep a lot, then you know it's time to throw them away and get out two new ones, but a box of these can easily last me three months." —Danielle

    Get 50 pairs from Amazon for $14.99.

    7. Or, a white noise machine so you can fall asleep to the soothing sounds of ocean waves or distant thunder.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I travel a lot for work and have a difficult time falling asleep in hotels. I recently bought the sleep machine and have taken it with me to three countries already and now sleep like a baby. I bought it for the white noise, but fall asleep listening to the ocean waves or rain sounds. The sound machine volume changer is easy to use. I love this little machine and it has become my best purchase for 2019." —Coach Shannon

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in three colors).

    8. An Echo Dot, because we're living in the future and this lil' guy is here to serve you. Ask Alexa to set an alarm for you, turn off the lights so you don't have to get out of bed, or adjust the thermostat because the bedroom is a bit too warm. The best part: It also functions as a white noise machine.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "It is amazing. I have insomnia, and I was able to set my welcome to play rain music to help me sleep every night. It also lets me know what the weather and traffic is like every morning. I just love it. It was easy to set up with my iPhone." —Marsh S

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in four colors and two styles).

    9. A sunrise alarm clock that'll help you unwind before bed and then gradually wake you up in the morning. No more smashing the snooze button multiple times!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Now I can leave the phone charging across the room (or in a handbag even. Who cares?) I can set this for the 'sun to set' at 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes later. So I set it, and I get in bed and read a book for an hour. Then the 'sun goes down' gradually, and I go to bed. Eight hours later, the 'sun' starts coming up gradually. So gradually, that at the beginning, you don't even notice. And you can set sounds in addition to the 'sunrise' effect: birds chirping, ocean waves, classical music, or FM radio. You can set two different wake up alarms. It doesn't even feel right to call them alarms, because it's not obnoxious or loud. It doesn't jolt you awake. You wake up gradually. This thing is perfect. I'm reading more, sleeping a lot better, and I don't even remember anymore to grab my phone to check social media in the mornings." —Mimi 5000

    Get it from Amazon for $104.99.

    10. A pair of flannel pajamas that'll keep you warm and toasty, even if your partner is a blanket hog.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "They are the perfect weight to keep me cozy, but not too heavy so I wake up in a full sweat! They fit wonderfully too, even after washing and drying." —Gamer 347

    Get a pair from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and seven colors).

    11. Or, a breathable nightgown if your sweat glands hate you and even setting the thermostat at 68 degrees and sleeping with a lightweight duvet leaves your sheets soaked.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I live in the South and need to be cool while sleeping so I wanted something light but it needed to be quality so it would last. This nightgown fits the bill nicely! It’s a beautiful color, fantastic material — soft, stretchy, cool but not so thin that you think it will fall apart if you wash it a couple of times." —Home sweet

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–4X and 18 colors).

    12. A gel memory foam pillow for anyone whose old, lumpy cushions just aren't cutting it anymore. This one has a cool gel layer on one side that's basically music to my ears as a sweaty sleeper. The other side is memory foam so you also get proper neck support.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My favorite pillow EVER! I’ve purchased them over and over. The coolness of my head no matter what the weather keeps me sleeping like a baby. They’re so great I have had some stolen (not joking)! These are not squishy; they're just extremely wonderful for a good night's sleep. The cool gel is amazing and it can be flipped over for a less cooling effect. Also great after surgery. Highly recommend and I will purchase again and again and again. Another natural pain-relieving product! I’m happy!" —Susan

    Get it from Amazon for $57.99.

    13. Or, a bed wedge, because you love your partner but their snoring is seriously ruining your sleep. It props up your upper body while you sleep and may reduce back and neck pain as well as snoring.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My husband used to snore like a freight train and would wake me up multiple times during the night. He even began snoring when he rolled over onto his 'good' side. We tried nasal strips, we used a humidifier, we tried two or three different firmness type bed pillows and NOTHING worked. It had gotten so bad that I would just sleep in the living room recliner instead of dealing with the snoring. He is the one who found this on Amazon and I was 100% skeptical. OMG I love this thing! Sometimes I will have to wake my husband up and have him scoot up a bit farther on the pillow because he is lightly snoring, but still that is NOTHING compared to before." —Monica B.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95.

    14. A memory foam orthopedic knee pillow to help reduce back strain, align your spine, promote better circulation, and alleviate pressure on your knees, especially for side sleepers.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I suffer from bad sciatica, so I was so excited to get this. I immediately tried it and was disappointed. My knees/ legs were barely apart. They were pretty much still touching. I saved the packaging so i could send it back. That night I tried it again just to give it a fair shot. THAT NIGHT WAS THE FIRST NIGHT I SLEPT THROUGH THE ENTIRE NIGHT IN 6 WEEKS!!! And it wasn't a fluke. A week later and i'm still sleeping through the night. My hips are no longer sore in the morning, and it's not excruciating pain when I sit up in the morning. Don't get me wrong, I am still in pain, especially when bending or stooping but the all day 'just for no reason pain' has gotten a lot better. I have no idea how but this thing works. I won't even lay on the couch without it now." —Stacey Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $27.95.

    15. A pack of scented foot pads that'll not only make your feet smell fresh, but may also promote circulation to your feet to relieve pain and make it easier to sleep.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am 40 years old with behavioral and sensory challenges. I am 100% convinced the foot pads are helping me. I apply them bilaterally right before I fall asleep. I have noticed every time that I wake up HAPPIER, less moody, less irritated, more receptive, and more energetic. I have used this product for one week almost continuously. The nights that I have forgotten to apply the foot pads, next morning I can tell the difference in my behavior." —The reviewer

    Get a box of 20 from Amazon for $19.98.

    16. A hot cold eye mask so you can treat yourself morning and night. Warm it up before bed to soothe your tired eyes and then cool it down in the fridge the next morning to help you de-puff your under-eye area and lighten your dark circles.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I sleep with this most nights! It’s amazing, high-quality, the gel bead side is very squishy but in a way cooling. The fabric side is very soft and warm, Love it! If you’re in need of a sleeping mask, I highly recommend this one. It comes also with a stretchy band and a Velcro attachment in the back that allows you to adjust how tight it is!" —Lynzey Oulman

    Get it from Amazon for $13.

    17. A weighted sleep mask that'll mold to the shape of your face to block practically every speck of light. These work similarly to weighted blankets, calming you down so you can prepare for a good night's rest.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I CANNOT STRESS HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS THING!!!

    I have terrible migraines, and the pressure that this puts on my head, eyes is so relaxing. I use it to sleep all the time, even when I don't have a migraine. I love the weighted feel of it and the fact that I can choose which of the two fabrics I want against my face. There is also a cool 'buttonhole' that you pull one end through to secure the mask around your head and it works so nicely. Light is blocked out, outside sound seems reduced, and when I want to wear headphones, I feel like they're a little more secure." —Kathleen Clay

    Get it from Amazon for $32 (available in nine colors).

    18. An air purifier for anyone who's been having trouble breathing easily through the night. This bad boy removes dander, mold, dust, and pollen in the air to help you sleep better.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is an excellent purifier for those who are affected by cat dander, mold, and other problems associated with breathing difficulties. I have several cats so there is so much hair in the air in addition to their dander. This machine has solved my breathing problems during the night (I use it in my bedroom). In fact I am sleeping better every night, which I'm sure is due to the cleaner air that I am breathing. Another plus is that I'm using a great deal less tissues." —Linda Cruz

    Get it from Amazon for $71.99+ (available in two colors).

    19. A two-in-one essential oil diffuser to emit relaxing scents like lavender that'll prepare your body for bedtime. It also doubles as a humidifier.

    amazon.com

    This color-changing diffuser and humidifier comes with seven mood lights, each of which can be used in bright or dim mode. It also has an auto-off feature, so it'll shut off once you run out of water.

    Promising review: "This little guy is great! I wanted a low profile diffuser and this fits the bill. I like the option of using the multi-colored lights, although more often I just keep the light off as I use it mainly at night for sleeping. When I get sick, a mix of eucalyptus, peppermint, and lavender in there is a godsend. There are multiple functions for constant scent or intermittent scent. Packs a large punch for such a small machine, and well worth the price. I'm considering getting multiple for multiple rooms." —FranklySpeaking

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

    20. Or, a non-toxic, eco-friendly aromatherapy mist you'll want to spray on your bed, pillows, room, and body. (Honestly, apply it the way middle school boys use Axe.) This one's made with lavender and chamomile, two herbs that are known for helping you relax.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I think this spray might be helping me sleep better, but I'm not positive. What I am sure of is that it smells fantastic! I have tried other sleeping sprays (and just about every sleep product on the market for my resistant insomnia) and this is one of my favorites for just having such a great, comforting smell. It makes my bedroom feel cozier and more inviting (which can be hard for some of us who learn to hate our beds when we can't sleep). So, I think it contributes to my ability to sleep just by making my bed more inviting." —Wiwse

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    21. A humidifier that'll add moisture to the air. This increases hydration to your hair and skin, plus it keeps your nasal passages moist, which has the added benefit of potentially helping prevent congestion. Here's to sleeping through the night *and* being able to breathe.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "So for the last several weeks, I have been experiencing the negative effects of dry air in my home, particularly in my bedroom. My nose has been dry and sore with inflamed nasal passages along with my nose running 'like a sugar tree.' Sleeping with a fan as I have done for the past 15+ years became impossible. I don't know about you, but that combination makes for a miserable sleep. Anywho, I had never needed or used a humidifier until this purchase. Let's just say that my dreams have returned and I'm waking up to a nice mist rather than a pillow of Kleenex and a sore nose. Life is good." —Tracy Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    22. A weighted blanket for anyone whose mind races when they're in bed. This one comes with two covers: one that'll keep hot sleepers cool and another that'll retain heat so you're cozy and warm.

    Amazon

    Using one may increase your serotonin levels because the weight mimics the sensation of being held or hugged. The release of serotonin and oxytocin (often nicknamed the "love hormone") can lower your stress levels and reduce some anxiety, may make it easier for you to drift off.

    Promising review: "Imagine being trapped under a 15-pound bag of beans in a box half your size somewhere, but instead of being trapped you're comfortably cocooned and the bag of beans is actually just a blanket and you're in a bed that's the perfect size. Your initial thought of a 15-pound blanket is terrifying and confusing, but once it's on, you slip into absolute bliss. This blanket gives a sense of comfortability and security, no one with zero muscle tone will be able to disturb the deep slumber you will fall into while this blanket is on you. Great for falling asleep and putting aside the worries and concerns about the monsters under your bed trying to get you, because we all know they give up at the slightest inconvenience. Also it is really a great relaxation gift for others!" —Amazon Customer

    Get an 18-pound blanket from Amazon for $119.99+ (available in nine weights and three colors).

    23. A heated blanket so you can show the cold weather who's the boss. It's great for warming up the bed that way you can dive into toasty sheets.

    amazon.com

    It has three heat settings and a three-hour auto-off feature so you can sleep easy — literally! — knowing you won't burn down the house. And when it gets dirty (perhaps the dog has stolen it one too many times and now it smells a bit ripe), just toss it in the washing machine.

    Promising review: "I never wanted an electric blanket but I did use my small heating pad on very cold nights. I wished i could have a heating pad except larger. The electric throw is the perfect answer. I have a queen mattress and it covers the top surface of the mattress from my chest down to my feet perfectly. I have it between my top sheet and my down comforter on top of me. I turn it on about 30 minutes before bedtime and I get into a wonderful cozy warm bed. I only have to use it on medium to be plenty warm enough. It automatically goes off three hours later after I am sound to sleep. I love it." —Ross I.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in eight colors).

    24. A set of luxuriously soft bed sheets, because your years-old itchy linens just aren't cutting it. Not only are they incredibly plush, but they're also wrinkle-resistant, so your guests will never know that you haven't made your bed in days.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these! So soft and they look so crisp! They’re breathable so it’s not uncomfortable if you get warm at night. Will be buying more!" —RoRoBug

    Get queen-size sheets from Amazon for $24.50 (available in six sizes and 17 colors).

    25. A set of bed bands that'll keep your sheets in place so they don't slip and disturb your slumber.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "We have a rather deep mattress and added a memory foam topper, which gave our fitted sheet a real stretch to be able to securely tuck at the corners and not slip off. It would hold some of the time, but we frequently had a corner or two slip off during the night. It was disrupting sleep, so I was ready to safety pin the fitted sheet corners in place. However, no need for safety pins. After giving Bed Band a try our fitted sheet slipping problem is solved! The clamp design grips like iron, but the best part is the adjustable bands that allow for a quick final fit after installing the clamps." —Huancayo

    Get a pack of four bands from Amazon for $12.99+.

    26. A heated foot massager you'll have to fight your family members to use. The pulsing massage nodes will pamper your sore, tired feet until they don't hurt anymore = no more waking up in the middle of the night to throbbing feet.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am on my feet for four to six hours a couple of days a week (I'm an usher at the local entertainment arena). When I get home, my feet hurt! This foot massager is AMAZING! It helps to relax my feet so that I can sleep. The next morning, I can get out of bed and walk without experiencing any pain. Great purchase." —Sonja Briscoe

    Get it from Amazon for $52.99.

    27. Or an electric back and neck massager for working out knots and kinks. Not only can massages relieve pain, but they also trigger the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that's involved in sleep.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I use it every night before I go to sleep and it helps me release my neck, shoulder, and lower back muscles. It’s easy to use and I just place it around neck and the back or wherever I want to massage. It really can release my muscles and made me comfortable." —Foon

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    28. A set of relaxing bath bombs to enjoy a warm soak before bed. Research shows that baths can lower your core temperature, which not only helps you get to sleep, but it may also improve your quality of sleep. An ideal bath time is an hour or two before you want to snooze.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Best night's sleep in years!!! I used a red one (not sure of scent), but my skin is sensitive and loved it! It looked like it was going to stain my tub but it didn't. I bought a basket to display...just beautiful!!! The box it came in had pretty paper strips that I used in my basket. Buy as a gift!" —CHAD R.

    Get a box of 12 from Amazon for $26.80.

    29. A himalayan salt lamp, because dozens of people swear by it for helping them sleep. Who knows if it actually does anything; at least it makes a great night light and creates the perfect peaceful ambiance for snoozing.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely love the salt lamp. In the evening, it helps create a calm, relaxing ambiance in my room which always puts me to sleep. The salt lamp is also great for doing meditations and unwinding after a long day. The dimmer switch with memory is also a great feature. Highly recommend. Since this purchase, I actually bought a second lamp to add to my room." —Lance

    Get it from Amazon for $19.30.
