    1. A sleek sleep mask to help reduce eye puffiness while blocking harsh light that can ruin your rest.

    The mask includes a pair of ear plugs.

    Promising Review: “I love this sleep mask. I bought this sleep mask because we were going on vacation, and I have to have a dark room to sleep in. I'm super claustrophobic and I didn't think these would work well. But they are perfect! They are super lightweight and the adjustable strap makes for a great fit.” —Football Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in 17 colors).

    2. A rejuvenating rosehip oil night serum filled with restorative ingredients so you can sleep your way to an amazing glow.

    Promising Review: “This serum is awesome! I have been using this product in the morning and at night with wonderful results! My skin looks supple, and the lines around my eyes and lips appear plumper. It’s the best product ever!” —WenDZ

    Get it from Amazon for $12.70.

    3. A set of gel moisturizing gloves and socks to leave your hands and feet feeling oh-so luxurious.

    The set includes two gloves and two socks, which are lined with gel that includes essential oils and botanicals.

    Promising Review: “These gloves are a moisturizing miracle! I have sensitive skin and dry hands from all the hand washing I have to do in my job. And these gloves have really helped to soften and soothe my skin and my cuticles! I am a medium size, and they fit me very well. The lavender smell is divine and the jojoba, olive and grape seed oils work like magic, leaving my hands much softer, smoother and feeling great!” —Love

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99.

    4. A comfy set of pajamas — they'll keep you feeling super cute for your date with some dreams.

    The two piece set includes a button-front shirt and drawstring-waist pants. The pieces should be hand-washed and air dried.

    Promising Review: “These pajamas are SO comfortable! They are smooth, lightweight, and breathable. I absolutely love them. The sizing is perfect. I'm 5'5" and about 165 lbs. I bought a size medium, and they fit perfectly, with just the right amount of roominess. I typically like my pajamas larger, so I almost bought the large. But I'm very happy I decided on the medium. So buy your true size. These are the most comfortable pajamas I've owned, and they are nicely constructed and well-made. These are a must-buy!” —KB

    Get them from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in 14 colors, sizes XS-2XL).

    5. A Jawbone UP Move tracker to strap onto your wrist at night for details on the quality of your sleep and how many hours you rest.


    The Jawbone UP Move can also be used to track steps, exercise, and calories burned with the Up app.

Promising Review: “I bought this because I really wanted to try out a wearable fitness tracker thing without spending hundreds. This fits my needs, so far. I can track food, calories, workouts, and sleep. It doesn’t have as many features as more expensive trackers, but it's perfect for starting out on a new fitness journey.” —Jo

    Get it from Jet for $9.99

    6. A body pillow great for relieving the discomfort and pain that can disrupt sleep during pregnancy.

    The pillow is designed to fit the contours of a pregnant person’s body, providing support to the belly, arms, and back. It also features a removable zippered pillowcase you can easily wash.

    Promising Review: “I love this pillow, especially that it has two sides so when you flip over, you don't have to move the pillow with you. I use it so many different ways. Watching a YouTube video about all the functions was great. The zip cover is perfect, as well, for easy washing.” —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $56.99 (also available in C-size pillow).

    7. A cool-mist humidifier to add moisture to the air, keeping your skin hydrated while also serving double duty as a night light.

    Along with its night light feature, it has an auto shut-off option, so you won’t have to stress about it running when the water gets too low.

    Promising Review: “This humidifier is wonderful. I sleep better and when I wake up my nose is no longer dried out and my headaches have gone away. It really adds moisture to the air.” —April

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    8. A set of headband headphones so you can go to sleep listening to your favorite tunes — and NOT have to worry about a midnight fight with your earbud wires.

    The band features a pair of removable speakers and can be pulled down over your eyes when you want to use it as a sleep mask.

    Promising Review: "I love these! I cannot live without them. I wear them at night to help me relax when I wake up and my husband is snoring! I use the headband as a sleeping mask to block out light. It is also washable once you carefully take out the speakers. The speakers are fragile. But I've used mine every single night for two years without any malfunction. If the snoring is extra loud, I can put in earplugs and then put on the earphones, and that does the trick. These are genius!” —Chef Envy

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97+ (available in eight colors) or Walmart for $17.97 (available in three colors).

    9. A glowing stars kit to try counting yourself back to slumber if your snoozing gets interrupted.

    The kit includes 150 stars of various sizes.

    Promising Review: “I would definitely recommend these. They shine very brightly, stick well, and look good! I love that there are a bunch of different sizes. My 2-year-old was so happy!” —Julia

    Get them from Amazon for $8.60.

    10. A case of Pukka Night Time tea that’ll have you knocked out in no time.

    The tea features a combination of oat flower, lavender, and limeflower, and valerian to help you dose off. And the case includes six boxes with 20 tea bags each.

    Promising Review: “Pukka's Night Time tea is a great way to end an evening. Its combination of herbs has a mild, yet intriguing, slightly sweet flavor. The overall quality meets or exceeds my local tea shop's similar loose-leaf options. And Pukka's tea is conveniently packaged in easily transportable tea bags.” —David L

    Get it from Amazon for $24.66.

    11. A Wave sleep sound machine to transport you to Dreamland with the lovely sounds of nature.

    The machine loops six nature sounds, with little repetition and no audible break.

    Promising Review: “This machine is nice and lightweight. It fits perfectly on my little bookshelf. I'm replacing my 9-year-old air purifier, which I use to drown out noise at bedtime. This compares to what I was looking for. I love the six options, the timer, and having the ability to choose the volume.” —D Vest

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    12. A travel pillow for keeping your neck supported while grabbing some ZZZs during your next flight.

    The pillow is machine-washable.

    Promising Review: “For many years, I've always travelled with a neck pillow when I travel by plane or by car. I thought that all neck pillows are the same. However, the pillow wrapped so comfortably and securely around my neck, which enabled me to rest and sleep well on the plane. So now, I will never want to travel without it again!” —Maryannlhy

    Get from Amazon for $29.97+ (available in seven colors and two sizes).

    13. A Phillips Wakeup Light clock that simulates the sunrise to gradually wake you up before your alarm goes off, providing a less traumatic wake up call than your loud-ass alarm clock ever could.

    The clock features a colored sunrise simulation and 20 brightness settings, with the light gradually increasing between 20 to 40 minutes before your alarm time. It also induces an FM radio and a tap-to-snooze alarm clock.

    Promising Review: “I definitely love this clock! We've had ours for five months without problems. I'm able to set the time and alarm times via the touch buttons on the front, below the time. You can also use the upper buttons, but don't have to for everything. The only thing you have to use the upper buttons for, in relation to setting alarms, is to turn an alarm off or on. For us, this isn't a daily event since we usually get up at the same times so no big deal. We live in the grey Seattle area, and the sunshine this thing brings us makes it the best alarm we've owned!” —Mariam G

    Get it from Amazon for $104.99, Jet for $104.99, or Walmart for $104.99.

    14. A pack of soft gel sheets for easing the pain of migranes, headaches, or fevers, all of which can rob your of a restful night of sleep.

    The set includes two packs, which include four gel sheets.

    Promising Review: “These are a lifesaver for migraines. Sometimes I find ice packs actually make the pain worse. These are cool enough to ease the pain without being too cold. The pad stays on my head all day and allows me to do something other than find some way to hold an ice pack next to my head.” —Sadie

    Get them from Amazon for $10.13..

    15. A monogrammed bedside carafe so you won’t have to leave the comfort of your bed for a late-night glass of water.

    The set includes a water carafe and glass.

    Promising Review: “This is a lovely, well-made carafe set. I believe it is the same as the one I had for about 25 years until I broke the glass on the sink. I hope to have this one as long!” —Alexandra

    Get the two-piece set from Amazon for $20.22.

    16. A bottle of lavender oil to add to your diffuser to ease your mind before calling it a night.

    Promising Review: “This brand has a wonderful fragrance! I have tried others, including one very expensive one, and have been disappointed. I will not do that again. I use this for my bedside diffuser and go to sleep with the soft, relaxing aroma. I also use it to scent my homemade foaming hand soap. And it releases a very pleasant fragrance when I am washing my hands.” —Mary Carol

    Get it from Amazon for $12.66, Jet for $13.55, and Walmart for $7.95.

    17. A set of cotton sheets perfect for snuggling up in your bed without feeling itchy and annoyed.

    The four-piece set includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillow cases.

    Promising Review: “I opted for these highly rated sheets on Amazon. And we were so impressed we ordered a second set. These are seriously the most comfortable sheets we have EVER had. Every night feels like we're staying in a five-star hotel. For the price, you owe it to yourself to give these a try!” —John

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in 16 colors and five sizes).

    18. A jar of Baebody eye gel that'll lift and firm your eye area, making for a refreshed appearance in the morning.

    Promising Review: “This is the best under eye product I have used. The way it is dispensed it so clean and convenient. The size is much larger than your typical under-eye product. One full pump is, honestly, too much. I have been using this morning and night for 10 days, and I am already seeing results.” —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95.

    19. A digital timer to cut off your lamp and other devices without having to lift a single finger.

    Set the time using the four-button programing on the front of the timer. The timer settings repeat every 24 hours.

Promising Review: “I use three of these to control the lights for my bearded dragon. It’s been about five months, and they still work perfectly. Once you get used to the controls, it's extremely easy to change the times for the day.” —Josh W

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $11.

    20. A copy of Why We Sleep — it'll help you break down the secrets of your favorite activity and how you can use that understanding during your up-time.

    Promising Review: “Unless you’re a zombie or a vampire, you’re going to want to read this book from cover to cover. Walker will overhaul your entire attitude toward this activity that we all do every day, but probably not enough. What’s at stake? Oh, just heart disease, cancer, and apparently the size of your testicles, if you happen to have any (left). It’s an easy, fun, and engaging read. And if you doze off in the middle of it, Walker won’t mind. He’ll tell you that’s a good thing.” —Steve Casner

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+, Barnes & Noble for $12.99+, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

    21. A set of twinkling curtain string lights for making your room just as magical as your dreams.

    The curtain string light is waterproof and features eight light modes and 300 LED lights.

    Promising Review: “I bought these for my dorm room and I am absolutely in love with them. I hung them on my wall as a decoration and I love that they come with several different lighting settings. The light they produce is not too bright or obnoxious so I am able to fall asleep with them without being bothered from the light." —Dna

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    22. A moisturizing sleep mask to leave you with a refreshed morning glow once you rise.

    Promising Review: “I love this mask! I have very dry skin, especially in the winter. I cannot believe the difference this makes. I use it at night and also in the morning under my makeup. My face feels much softer when I use it. Don't hesitate to give it a try.” —Jersey Girl

    Get it from Amazon for $26.45.

    23. And a Lutron wireless dimmer kit so you can cut ALL the lights in your room — or whole darn house — off and on with the simple push a button.

    You can use the dimmer kit to set up and schedule lights to come on before you return home. You are able to control lights in your home with voice assistant, the included Pico remote, or your smartphone through the Lutron app. The kit also can be connected to Smart Home brands like Amazon Alexa, Nest, and Sonos. The dimmer switches can be installed in three steps in about 15 minutes and they do not require a neutral wire, making them able to be installed in older homes, as well. The kit Includes one smart bridge, one dimmer switch with a wallplate, and one Pico remote control, with one dimmer able to control up to 17 bulbs per circuit.

    Promising Review: “This is a great smart lighting solution. It’s far more capable than smart bulbs and not much more expensive. Start here if you're looking to add smart lights to your home. I've been slowly integrating smart devices into my life, and lighting was my first point of entry. Initially, the plan was to use relatively inexpensive smart bulbs with a SmartThings hub, but I found this sorely lacking in features and usability. The major problem with smart bulbs is that the light fixture must be turned on for the smart bulb to work. But guests and family members who don't know this would turn the light off at the switch, or fixture, thereby rendering the bulb useless. That’s a huge Dealbreaker, particularly if you are relying on a smart bulb for security purposes, such as to turn on and off to simulate someone being home. However, this problem is remedied by smart switches, like the Lutron Caseta, that replace your existing switches!” —Brian C

    Get it from Amazon for $93.06, Jet for $90.85, or Walmart for $140.
