    1. A pineapple-print duvet cover set so you can relax in bed like you're on a tropical island.


    It comes with the cover and two shams.

    Promising review: "Bought it for my daughter who is obsessed with pineapples. Very nice quality and I love the zipper. Very happy with the purchase!" —Daisydew

    Get it on Amazon for $48.99+ (available in twin, full/queen, or king).

    2. A no-frills microfiber sheet set to make your bed cozy night after night.


    Just make sure *not* to wash or dry them on hot: since these are made from polyester, that might make them pill faster.

    Promising review: "So these aren't high end sheets, but for the cost, they are well worth the buy. I own three sets of these sheets and they've all held up very well. They fit my 14-in-deep queen foam mattress without issue. They're not too warm in the summer and still help you keep warm in the winter. They feel pretty good. No, they won't feel like 850 thread count Egyptian cotton, but these are a fraction of the cost." —Wathan48

    Get them on Amazon for $13.99+ (available in twin–Cal king, including twin XL, and 44 colors/patterns).

    3. A hypoallergenic down-alternative duvet to snuggle under on Saturday mornings all year 'round.


    Promising review: "This comforter is amazing! I was getting too warm with my down comforter but still wanted something soft, and this was the answer. It's very light, yet still provides enough warmth that I'm only using this with a flat sheet. It fit perfectly in my duvet cover and comes with loops on each corner and midway between the corners." —Joiseygirl

    Get it on Amazon for $29.99+ (available in twin–Cal king, including twin XL and oversized queen, and seven colors.)

    4. A bird-print duvet cover set that will make you want to sing along with joy every time you walk into your room and see it.


    It comes with the duvet and two pillowcases.

    Promising review: "The bird pattern is beautiful — soft and pretty. The material feels good and has held up really well for six months of weekly washings. This was a great buy for our nine-year-old daughter." —CP

    Get it on Amazon for $48.99 (available in twin or full/queen).

    5. A weighted blanket so you can snuggle up underneath it night after night and let it help relieve some of the day's stress and anxiety, as it cuddles you in a gentle hug.


    In general, you want to look for a weighted blanket that's 10% of your body weight, so if you weigh 90–150 lbs you'll want something around you want something that's 10–15 pounds, or if you weight 150-200 you'll want something that's 15–20 pounds.

    Promising review: "I love this blanket. I have a thicker fuzzier weighted blanket that gets way to hot for me with night sweats going on. This one is nicely heavy but also cool. Thinner and less bulky. The fabric is luxurious feeling and well made. The pellets shift a little in their pockets but plenty of division to keep the weight distributed evenly. Best nights sleep ever!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it on Amazon for $65.90+.

    6. A bright and boho duvet cover set perfect for anyone who wants more color in their life.


    Promising review: "Better than expected, so far! This duvet cover is very soft and VERY BRIGHT. I was expecting there to be more blue on it but it's definitely mostly hot pink. The microfiber is soft and not heavy, it's not the kind of microfiber I was expecting but that's a good thing. The duvet cover is nice and light which won't add to the heft of the duvet I have, perfect for summer weather. The picture doesn't quite do the blue or the patterns justice, the colors are far more vibrant in person." —Beka

    Get it on Amazon for $20.50+ (available in twin, king, and queen).

    7. A faux-fur blanket that you basically won't be able to keep your hands off of because it's just. that. soft.


    Promising review: "My family and I refer to this amazing blanket simply as Jon Snow. My house knows no blanket except for the king of the blankets named Stark. If you have any direwolves they will immediately take over Jon Snow and he will no longer belong to you. My little direwolf did this the first day I got Jon Snow. I'm considering ordering a second one just for myself now.

    Jon Snow is beautiful and soft on both sides and great to cuddle with. He is also machine washable and dryable and comes out looking just like new so long as you wash him in cold water and tumble dry him on low heat. He is from the North after all." —Samantha A

    Get it on Amazon for $28.98+ (available in two throw sizes, sizes twin–king, and up to 14 colors, depending on the size you need).

    8. A botanical duvet cover set — it brings an elegant farmhouse-chic look to basically any bedroom.


    Promising review: "King size duvets can be super expensive! I can’t believe this one only cost $30. I needed a new duvet for our spare bedroom to replace one we had from ikea that got dingy over the years. This has a zipper closure, which I prefer and comes with two pillow cases. I paired this set with black sheets and a black bed skirt to match the rest of the spare room. The color matches the product photo perfectly and the quality and material are both great. It reminds me of hotel linens. The material is pretty wrinkle free. I was too lazy to steam it before placing it on the bed, but after a few days, the creases went away." —tasha clites

    Get it on Amazon for $25.95+ (available in queen and king sizes).

    9. An aww-inspiring reversible quilt set stamped with curious kitty-cats that'll make your heart swell with cuteness and delight.

    Bed Bath & Beyond

    Get it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $39.99+ (available in twin and full/queen sizes).

    10. A set of 400-thread count 100% cotton sheets, if you, like me, find polyester sheets just way way too hot to sleep in most of the time.


    You get a full set: top sheet, bottom sheet, and two pillowcases.

    Promising review: "I cannot sleep comfortably without 100% cotton sheets and these have been wonderful. They are great quality especially considering how inexpensive they are. I got the blue and it's still vibrant and bright after two washes, and I have no complaints. Also, FYI 100% cotton sheets will wrinkle, you will have to iron or steam them if this bothers you. You can take precautions to reduce it, like washing on the gentle cycle, or untwisting them before putting them in the dryer, but as a rule cotton wrinkles." —Belle

    Get them on Amazon for $36.99+ (available in twin, full, queen, and king and eight colors).

    11. A simple solid quilt set you could use alone for a minimalist vibe or a layered with your duvet for an ultra-luxe look.

    Promising review: "Love love love this quilt set. (I got the Navy diamond color.) It's very lightweight but great for a little bit more warmth than just a sheet alone. It seems to be very well made for how inexpensive it was/is priced. It is just the style I was looking for that was similar to a Pottery Barn diamond quilt that cost $250+ for the set. I highly recommend this set over others that have a "stamped/embossed" quilt design, like another one I returned, because this one is actually stitched. Simply beautiful." —Stephanie E.

    Get it on Amazon for $29.99+ (available in twin, full/queen, and king, five textures, and up to five colors, depending on the texture/size you need).

    12. A silk pillowcase — it can do wonders to reduce how frizzy your hair looks in the morning and generally just make you feel like royalty.

    Promising review: "I have satin sheets on my bed but they are not high-quality and the pillowcases do very little for my hair. I would go to sleep with beautiful curls and wake up with a birds nest. After doing some research I found that silk pillowcases could help with frizzy hair. I could not be happier that I bought these because now I can wake up without looking like Mufasa had a bad blow out. Not to mention they are incredibly soft and smooth." —Khalysee

    Get it on Amazon for $22.99+ (available in seven sizes and 37 colors).

    13. An elegant and traditional-ish cotton quilt set designed to last (and be washable!) for many years.

    Promising review: "A lovely blue that coordinates with a variety of colors. The weight is perfect for year-round use. I’ve owned this type of Laura Ashley covering in the past and they hold up for *years*. These 100% cotton covers are workhorses! I wash mine monthly in a household machine. They just get better with age. Yes, you’ll have some fading. It’s cotton. But the quilting is so closely done that there is NO batting shift or clumps." —JennD - librarian

    Get it on Amazon for $47.99+ (available in twin, full/queen, king, and daybed); also available in sage green for $54.12+.

    14. A duvet cover covered in flowers you can always enjoy whether or not you happen to have a green thumb.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $59+ (available in twin/twin XL or full/queen).

    15. An incredibly soft microfiber velvet throw to drape around your shoulders while reading before bed, because sometimes you get chilly but don't want to put down your book.

    Promising review: "If you're shopping for softness, I honestly can't imagine finding a softer blanket out there. Neither can the cat, apparently; it was out of the package for all of two and a half seconds before his eyes got big and he was pressing himself into it, aiming for maximum surface area contact, curling his toes up and everything. I thought he was going to pass out from the rapture. Honestly, I can't imagine a better testimonial than that." —M.

    Get it on Amazon for $15.99 (available in six colors and four sizes).

    16. A set of two machine washable fiber fill–pillows that let you add or remove stuffing to fine-tune the firmness you prefer.

    That said, if you want *firmer* pillows than these, they don't come with any extra stuffing.

    Promising review: "We've had these pillows for about six weeks now and we both love them! We are both side sleepers, typically, but also read in bed. The extra loft is great for reading and relaxing, and the ability to contour the fill to meet you head and neck support needs are both big pluses for us. I've tried a number of pillows over the past few years and Sable Pillows provides the best ones yet. One of us used a down pillow before since it was better for contouring than standard foam pillows, and finds this to be better in all respects." —AvidReader

    Get them on Amazon for $36.99.

    17. A two-inch memory foam mattress topper — it's the easiest way to upgrade a bed that's too firm so you can actually get a decent night's sleep.

    Promising review: "This has transformed my blah mattress into something I love! I've been spoiled sleeping on a memory foam (king size) mattress for a few years now. I'm currently renting a temporary furnished apartment with a small average mattress, and I wasn't sleeping well. I can already tell that this mattress topper will make a HUGE difference in my quality of sleep. It's perfect, and definitely worth the price! I laid it out while I went out to dinner (two hours max) and it was completely poofed up to normal size by the time I got home. It's seriously perfect, and better than I was expecting for the price." —Katie

    Get it on Amazon for $39.99+.

    18. A cable-knit blanket with a soft and fluffy lining that's best appreciated with low light and a cup of your favorite herbal tea.

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness...this blanket is so soft! I love it! I've been wanting one like it for my baby, but then I saw this adult sized one and had to get it. I see a lot of reviews here that say this blanket is thin. I wouldn't characterize it as thin, but as a disclaimer, I do live in a tropical climate. So I don't know how warm it is for super cold weather, but it's plenty cozy for cooler nights here." —Mike & Cari

    Get it on Amazon for $19.98+ (five colors).

    19. A set of heathered cotton jersey sheets, so it feels just like slipping into your favorite soft t-shirt every time you climb into bed.


    Promising review: "I bought these sheets as a spare set, but I've been using them constantly for about two months now. I only use jersey sheets so I know the difference in brands but these are just as amazing as the ones I paid $100 for (on sale) — and they were so inexpensive! I have had no problems with pilling, no rips, no tears, just awesome sheets at an even better price. I would definitely recommend!" —tb1029

    Get them from Amazon for $34.80+ (available in twin–king sizes, including twin XL, and five colors).

    20. A fuzzy throw pillow to add a touch of whimsical glam to almost any bed setup.

    Maybe it'll even inspire you to make up your bed in the morning, because it's just so fun to style!

    Get it on Dormify for $29+ (seven colors).

    21. A fruity sheet set because you deserve to wake up every morning feeling peachy-keen.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $59+ (available in sizes twin XL–king).

    22. A glamorous striped duvet cover set so your bed always looks like it's dressed to impress.

    Promising review: "Love it! Just as described, fits my queen bed very well. Pillow cases fit a standard pillow and the fabric feels very soft. It's been almost a month with daily abuse from the dogs and two washes in hot water. The fabric is holding up very well and I haven't noticed any bleeding from the black onto the white. Maybe it's my imagination, but the fabric seems to get softer without the use of fabric softener. Still love it!" —merber

    Get it on Amazon for $22.99+ (available in twin, queen or king).

    23. A set of two velvet throw pillow covers that come in 27 different colors so you're sure to find ones that match your decor.


    Promising review: "I was absolutely thrilled when I pulled these from the package. The color is just as pictured online, deep and saturated. The fabric is very smooth and so soft to the touch. Simply luxurious! I was apprehensive after reading reviews complaining about the smaller zipper opening and seams ripping, but found that by being patient and continually turning the pillow over as I carefully inserted it in a little at a time I was able to do so successfully. The zipper is the same color as the cover and blends in beautifully once zipped up. I am beyond pleased with these covers. These could easily pass for something from a high-end store." —Carolyn Hopkinson

    Get them on Amazon for $11.99+ (available in six sizes and 27 colors).

    24. An artist-designed throw blanket that's an uncanny match for your personality and style, because there are so many options available.

    Soceity 6 /, ilovedoodle / Society 6

    You can get all kinds of beautiful, funny, perfect things printed on a throw blanket at Society6, for $44.99+.

    Get the Cat Ice Cream blanket from ilovedoodle on Society6 for $44.99+.

    25. A pintuck duvet cover set so you can enjoy a minimalist backdrop for all your throw pillows without opting for a plain, untextured cover.

    Multiple reviewers who bought the king size version said they had to turn it sideways for it to fit their bed (so the zipper was on one side, not the end), but that you couldn't tell unless you were really looking for it.

    Promising review: "This looks great in my room! I love it — my dog threw up on it shortly after we received it but it washed right out. Didn't shrink or lose any of its form. I had purchased a similar cover from West Elm which was much more expensive than this one ($69+). This material is softer, richer, and cleans WAY easier. It is also a lot easier to get the blanket insert in and out of the cover. 100% would purchase again." —Sami Sowers

    Get it on Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes twin–Cal king and both white and grey).

    26. A set of perky percale floral sheets to inject just the right amount of extra color into your life.


    Percale cotton is high-quality and should last wash after wash for years. To me, percale sheets feel like crisp hotel sheets!

    Promising review: "Beautiful print. The sheets are not thick but they are on the thin side and soft. I think they will probably hold up. I’ve washed them and they came out beautifully." —Baking

    Get them at Target for $19.99+ (available in twin XL and full, or other sizes in other patterns).

    27. A triangle-print duvet cover set that's the perfect non-neutral neutral.

    Promising review: "I love the fabric and pattern of this set. It creates a delightful atmosphere in the bedroom, calm and peaceful, and the contrasting striped side is fun and quirky. The fabric seems wrinkle resistant, because when the bed is made, it smooths out and looks fresh again. It's also very soft to touch and is comfortable to sit or lie on. This makes it possible to inexpensively change up the bedroom from time to time. —Kathleen E.

    Get it on Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes twin–king and two colors).
