I don't look like such a crazy person now and everything is so hidden and organized." —AmberGet it from Amazon for $6.97+ (seven colors) or a similar one from Jet for $7.59.

amazon.com, Bailey Stratford / Via amazon.com

The lighted controller is super easy to see and use: it has three warming settings and a three-hour auto-off function.

Promising review: "This blanket is wonderful and been stolen from me by my children and my dog! Time to order a second one." —Bailey Stratford

Get it from Amazon (six colors / 50' x 60 size only) or Walmart (three colors / sizes twin to king) for $29.99+.

3. A laptop desk to peruse the internet at your height- and angle-adjusted leisure. Plus, plenty of room on the side for snacks and a steaming hot cup of cocoa.

Promising review: "Wow, this desk delivers. Sturdy and well made. It allows me to work outside with ease, or watch videos in bed without overheating my laptop. I can draw, write, and compute anywhere I choose. Small enough to pack to the beach or onto our boat too. I previously purchased metal lap desks that quickly fell apart and I have also used lap pillows, but this desk far exceeds those." —Avid ShopperGet it from Amazon for $32.99+ (two colors) or a similar one from Jet for $34.99.

cratejoy.evyy.net

Each box contains four to six products (the deluxe box has bigger-sized items) that include elements of light, hot drink and sweet indulgence, i.e. fairy lights, hot cocoa, cookies, etc.

Promising review: "It was an experience just opening the box and lifting the papers to see what was inside. All the items brought a smile and a promise of sweet moments to come." —Cris

Get it from Hygge Box on Cratejoy for $28 (standard) or $39.95 (deluxe) per month. Next box ships between Jan 15th and18th.

5. A twistable gadget holder for freeing your arms from the tiring task of holding your phone or tablet while you drool over Great British Baking Show for a day straight.

Promising review: "I wanted to be able to play my Nintendo Switch in bed without having to hold up the entire console and this mount allows me to have the screen hover above my head, while my arms and neck can relax.

6. A flexible long-limbed tablet holder that doesn't even blink an eye at the sight of messy beds — it's ~that~ confident when it comes to its work. #professional

amazon.com, C. Bradley / Via amazon.com

The design fits virtually any tablets, though if you keep a case on, that case must be less than 10 mm thick. Flexible legs fold down to save space when not being used

Promising review: "Bought this because the girl in the green shirt (left) is basically my big sister (right). :) I was hoping she'd be printed on the box, but no such luck. That is my only complaint: put Abigail on the box where she belongs!!! Great product!" —C. Bradley

Get it from Amazon or Walmart for $39.95.

7. A casual tee with a heavy heaping of honesty. Sorry friends, you pale in comparison to a good night's rest or even a midday nap.

8. A late-night journal for exploring and hopefully quieting down all the buggy thoughts that are keeping you from priority #1: lots of sleep.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Although I usually have no trouble falling asleep at night, lately I've found myself staying awake later — sometimes anxious about all of the things I have to do the next day, and sometimes just with too many thoughts occupying my head. I like using this journal to learn more about myself and what my thoughts actually mean. I've found that some of my most cyclical and reoccurring thoughts outline fears I've been too hesitant to confront, and this journal is helping me to recalibrate them into more helpful thoughts." —Trevor Burbank

Get it from Amazon for $10.87, Barnes and Noble for $11.35, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

9. A cute-as-a-button nightstand with plenty of space up top and inside its canvas drawers to stuff to full capacity with food, drinks, reading materials, etc., because even if the apocalypse comes, you're not budging.

Promising review: "Easy to put together and looks great. Everyone who sees them are impressed. Looks much more expensive than they are and are solid when built." —Rebecca M.Get it from Amazon for $59.99 or Walmart for $62.99.

10. A heavenly shredded memory foam pillow that has the right balance of thickness, firmness, and flexibility so it won't cause neck pain, nor a rift in the beautiful relationship you have with your bed.

Philip Prouhet / Via amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "It seems like like a silly gift for a spouse, but my husband cycles through pillows like you wouldn't believe. He struggles finding pillows that are firm enough to hold his head up and align with his spine, but flexible enough to form for support. After a lot of research and hoping the other reviews would steer me in the right direction, I bought it. It took about three hours before it was at full size. He fell right asleep when he laid on it and when he woke up, he said his neck did not hurt as much as usual and he feels like he got a good night's rest, which is very unusual for him." —Booker

Get it from Amazon for $35.75+ or Walmart for $59.99+ (standard, queen, and king sizes).

11. A calming sound machine with a plethora of white noise, brown noise, and other soothing, nature-y sounds so angry drivers and motorcyclists can't ruin your happy space.

Promising review: "We got this to provide white noise for our puppy so that street sounds wouldn't wake him. It is a very solidly-built device. Each sound is distinct and either has a long loop or some form of randomness — I can't hear any repeating patterns. The ocean and rain sounds are very soothing and my son likes the two lullaby options. Something for everyone! I tend to find LEDs distracting in dark rooms, so I like that it does not have any on/off light." —JeffGet it from Amazon for $27 or Walmart for $40.73.

12. An extremely durable and forgiving 10 foot cord so you don't have to maneuver this way and that — aka leave the toasty cocoon of your bed — to charge your silly phone.

Promising review: "Anker PowerLine cables are extremely durable because of their Kevlar fibers. I have had a few of my own for a couple years now and they are as good as they day I bought them. I bought a set of these gold-colored cables for a friend of mine and she absolutely loves them. She's pretty tough on her cords (i.e. frayed Apple lightning cables with wires sticking out), but I know these will hold up to her every day wear and tear. Now her other family members want Anker PowerLine charging cables too! She couldn't be happier." —Research ObsessedGet it from Walmart for $11.99 (white only) or Amazon for $17.99 (four colors).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "We got these last week and wish we had ordered them sooner. My husband said IF we start to see them wearing out (which seems like will be a long time out), we should order new ones and have them ready to go so we are never without them. They have made reading, using our tablets, and watching TV in bed so much nicer. My husband is snoring less and breathing better using it too." —Matt Spivey-Bevington

Get them from Amazon: the first one for $29.99+ (three sizes) and second one from Amazon or Jet for $39.99+ (two sizes).

14. Bluetooth earphones stealthily tucked into a snug fleece headband so you can fall asleep listening to music or watch videos while lying on your side without getting wrapped in cords and/or murdering your ears!

Promising review: "I listen to ASMR and other audios to try and help me fall asleep. While I love the sound quality of my fancy over-ear headphones, the weight of my head and constant shifting usually meant that the audio connection would break. These CozyPhones are the perfect solution. They are super comfy and breathable and the bluetooth is a plus so I don't have to worry about getting tangled or strangled by cords. Audio quality is surprisingly good as well. You get great value for the price." —KellyGet them from Walmart for $22.97 or Amazon for $29.99 (three colors).

Promising review: "This subscription box is incredible at bringing books to life and does a fantastic job enhancing the book-reading experience.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Since I usually stay up late at night and watch things on my computer for way too long each day, I always have dry eye and puffiness. This helps me to massage my eyes and improve blood circulation, which makes my eyes look younger. This massager wand also helps my eye cream absorb quickly and better.

He was in tears with happiness when Alexa played 70's music and Jeopardy, answered all his questions, and wakes him up every morning.
