    1. A reversible window fan that can be used as both an intake fan and an exhaust fan. Let the hot air out and the cool air in! With a digital thermostat and three speed settings, that'll be even easier to do.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a must have when all you have in the bedroom is a ceiling fan which does not make a difference when the room can heat up to 100 degrees. Around 6 p.m., I turn on the unit to suck the hot air out of the room then in two hours I change the mode to bring in the cooler air from outside. It has made a huge difference in my ability to sleep on the really hot southern California summer nights!" —Julie

    Get it from Amazon for $86.38.

    2. Or a 3-in-1 air conditioner ready to help you save on your energy bill *and* save you from heat and humidity. This 10,000 BTU (that's a heckin' lot of joules, okay) air conditioner will have your room comfortably chill in a matter of minutes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a great window AC! It cools in minutes. I also like the 3-in-1 functionality since it is not only an AC but also a dehumidifier. And of course the fan mode is excellent for when all is needed is for the air to cool down just a bit or simply move around to keep the area nice and fresh.

    I love the sleep mode; it adjusts to a very comfortable temperature when it is time to sleep! Its vents also allows for air to flow to any area of the room! The washable filter means I do not have to buy new filters all the time :) All in all, this AC is super awesome! Cheers to the best AC I've ever had!" —MediaBoxEnt

    Get it from Amazon for $359.99.

    3. A set of thermal-insulated blackout curtains that'll keep the sun's blazing rays from heating up your bedroom.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These do exactly as they say — block the light completely and help to muffle sound. I live next to a busy highway, and as soon as I put these up, it sounded like the highway was far in the distance. I track my sleep every night, and since I've had these curtains I've gone from a 60%-70% quality of sleep to 90%+ every single night. Highly recommend!" —Nichole

    Get it from Amazon for $36.95+ (available in 13 sizes and 17 colors).

    4. An ultrasonic cool mist humidifier whose 360-degree nozzles will make sure that every inch of your space maintains a humidity between 40%–60% without turning your home into a sauna.

    amazon.com

    This humidifier can also operate as an oil diffuser!

    Promising review: "This thing is the bomb! It’s the king of tabletop humidifiers. It goes for 10–12 hours on max humidity and pumps out absolute clouds of humidity. I’ve got it going 24/7. It’s about 12 feet away, and my humidity meter next to me shows 37% in this forced air heated room. It's easy to fill, holds a lot of water, and believe me you will humidify your room. No more dry skin, static electric shocks, clingy static-y clothes. I only wish I could have bought another, but Amazon was out of them when I came to get one." —what.it.is

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    5. An oscillating tower fan so cool air gets into every crevice of your room. No hot spots here! And its sleep mode is so quiet, neither sound NOR heat shall wake you up in the middle of the night.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by how quiet and efficient this fan is. I love the oscillating feature as well. My body heats up really fast at night, but when I use this, I don't break a sweat at all! Now I'm ready for the times my A/C decides to break while in this Texas heat. The only thing I don't like is that I didn't buy two of them LOL! Definitely a GREAT buy if you are looking for a tower fan!" —Kendall Green

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

    6. Or a high-velocity metal floor fan if you're in need of airflow that's not only consistent but also very (very) powerful. You'll be able to check "optimize air circulation" off your to-do list.

    reviewer image of the comfort zone high velocity fan turned on high
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is powerful as hell! I live in a pretty big one bedroom apartment in California where air conditioning is apparently not a thing. So I bought this. I turned it on in my living room to test it, and it blew all my stuff off my desk like the tornado in the intro to Wizard of Oz. Personally, I like it; it keeps my room nice and cool. However, it’s also pretty damn loud. But it’s industrial strength, so to whom much horsepower is given, a loud engine is expected. I’ve had it about a month now, and I’ve gotten used to it; it’s kind of become white noise and it blocks out a lot of the random street noise at night. I’m very happy with it!" —Miss Trysh

    Get it from Amazon for $34+ (available in two sizes).

    7. A cold brew maker that'll help you deal with high temperatures and your early morning small attention span. Just add ground coffee to the infuser, add water, and let it brew overnight for a caffeinated homemade delight.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great cold brew system! I wish we had bought it sooner! This system is so easy to use. Just add your coffee of choice and water, place it in the fridge, and wait for the next day. That's it!! So easy, great tasting coffee that goes far enough for two of us. It easily fits on a refrigerator shelf or door. We're considering buying a second because of how much coffee my husband drinks!" —Jessica M.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    8. A stainless-steel bottle-opening beer chiller and an aerating wine chiller so no matter how soon after returning from the liquor store you indulge in an adult beverage, you know they'll always be at the most refreshing temp.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This beer chiller is wonderful! It will turn any warm bottled beverage into a frosty crisp refreshment in a matter of seconds. The chiller stays cold about two hours. Since it's stainless steel, it feels like an icicle. The lip rests snugly on top of most standard bottles and is easily cleaned." —KaVillage

    Promising review: "This is soooo useful to have! I love the foil cutter, but my favorite part is, of course, the chiller. You just put it in the freezer for a couple of hours, attach it to the pourer, and then stick it in the wine bottle and bam! It keeps your wine chilled! I also love that the pourer acts as an aerator to air out the wine while you drink it. We love it so much we have gifted it to friends!" —Amazon Customer

    Get the beer chiller from Amazon for $14.99, and the wine chiller for $12.99+.

    9. An oscillating sprinkler because your garden's not the only thing around that needs a little watering. Sure, it's perfect for irrigation, but why not also have a little springtime romp?!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Need a sprinkler with a bit more character? Check out this unicorn sprinkler!

    Promising review: "It gets great coverage for the center of the lawn (since it only sprays in a circle, we got a different sprinkler for the edges and corners). The spray nozzles can be twisted/adjusted to spray more vertically or more horizontally and give you more or less coverage depending on what you need. This sprinkler also works pretty well if you have low water pressure (which we had when we had all of our purchased sprinklers hooked up and running).

    Side benefit: This is a very pretty sprinkler to watch. It makes great arching patterns. It's also a great sprinkler for the kids to play in." —Julie G.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    10. Or an outdoor misting system that can be attached to an awning, patio table umbrella, pergola, and whatever else you've got in your backyard! Just screw one end onto your hose and clip the rest of the cord around your outdoor lounge area.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love spending time outside, and we entertain on our patio, too. But when it's over 100 degrees outside, nobody feels like visiting. Until now!! I bought one and liked it so much I ordered another to cover both patios. They lower the temps to a more moderate level in just moments and don't use a 100 gallons of water doing it! I put mine along the top of our privacy fence and then put a fan in behind it and made it almost like having an AC unit outside. They're easy to put up and take down and come with convenient hanging hooks!

    I read the reviews people wrote about the heads getting stopped up, and they WILL, but as a plumber I'll tell you a trick to keeping them working like new: vinegar. Just remove the heads and soak then in a little straight vinegar then use a small bristle brush like a toothbrush or nail brush rinse them off and replace them in the mister tubing, and they should be like brand new." —Sonya Combs

    Get it from Amazon for $17.08+ (available in several pack sizes).

    11. A vintage tabletop fan powerful enough to stir up a little windstorm at your desk. It's got an adjustable tilting head so you can send that mini storm in any direction.

    reviewer image of the vintage white vornado personal fan with a classic base on a desk next to an office phone
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This fan has exceeded my expectations. The retro design is extremely stylish, and it is compact enough to carry around my office. The air flow is superb, and I can get overheated pretty easily. Mostly, I turn this fan on low (two speeds) and it is more than enough to keep me cool. In fact, it does such a good job that often I have to turn the fan off for a little bit because I am getting too cool. If you like the looks of this fan but are hesitating at the price, go for it. You will not be disappointed!" —mykehorn

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in six colors).

    12. An instant ice cream maker because...instant ice cream. What else do you need to know? Well, you'll also get a scoop, a spade, and a recipe book to make all your frosty dreams come true.

    reviewer image of homemade ice cream scraped off of the chef'n sweet ice cream maker
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Makes real ice cream for one or two people in less than 5 mins. I keep the plate in the freezer. I make my own ice cream mixture from the recipe book and I keep it in a jar in the fridge. Then when I want ice cream, I take out the plate, pour on the ice cream mix, and I 'm eating delicious ice cream in about two minutes. The ice cream is even firm enough to put in a cone. THE best part is that I control the ingredients in my ice cream, so I know it's fresh." —Karen Roberts

    Get it from Amazon for $38.35.

    13. And scoop that into this set of cute reusable ice cream bowls and spoons shaped like colorful cones, because ice cream is more than a treat...it's an experience.

    Crystalia

    Promising review: "One hundred percent a walk down memory lane. I am transported to the summer of '96, and I am in Norman, Oklahoma and just ran through the sprinklers. My mom yells at us all to come inside, she has a surprise: ice cream in cups just like these. I remember them down to the spoon. Thanks for such a fun product." —Emily Marsh

    Get it from Crystalia for $14.95.

    14. A 16-ounce pastel tumbler so you stay hydrated as you wander from room to room trying to find the coldest spot to ~chill~ in.

    Get it from Hailey Brook Designs on Etsy for $6.99 (available in four colors).

    15. A sleek dehumidifier that'll suck the water out of the air so you can breathe a little easier in this heat. It's got a silent fan so you won't even notice it's working until you realize how comfortable you feel.

    reviewer image of the hevillo dehumidifier turned to 80
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this gem for a 900-square-foot house located on a pier in Texas. With no central air, all of our air conditioners are window units. This dehumidifier dropped the humidity level in the house from 80% to 35% in about three hours, filling its water tank completely up. It changed the comfort level dramatically!! It’s not very loud and is easy to roll around and empty the reservoir. It's small but mighty!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $169.99 (available in three colors).

    16. A gel-infused memory foam pillow made using AirCell tech that allows for improved airflow so you're not overheating as you try to fall asleep.

    amazon.com

    One side of this pillow stays cool while the other increases heat, so you can flip it over in the winter for even more comfort!

    Promising review: "I'm very impressed with this pillow! It took about a day to fully puff up since it's packaged rolled up. I’ve been looking for a pillow that offers good support for side sleeping that isn’t incredibly expensive, and this one is a good option. The memory foam is soft yet supportive, and it stays very cool. One of my kids keeps stealing it because it’s so comfortable. I would definitely recommend trying this pillow!" —Pendragon1977

    Get it from Amazon for $17.15+ (available in three sizes).

    17. A pack of two door draft stoppers with adhesive strips that make for easy install. No more losing precious cold air when you turn your A/C on!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I originally bought these to keep crickets out of my house, because I have large gaps under both of my doors and a cricket problem in my yard. But after installing them (which was super easy), I realized that they were keeping my house cool during the day and keeping the cold air out at night." —Betty

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

    18. A dual shot and cocktail glass you can take a shot of tequila out of before indulging in a revitalizing homemade frozen marg.

    19. A super-breathable eucalyptus bedding set so silky soft, you'll be nodding off to sleep in no time. Night sweats will be a relic of yesteryear, because everything in this set is made of a cooling thermal-regulating material. We love to see it.

    Bed with white Sijo duvet cover and sheet set
    Sijo

    Because this set doesn't come with a duvet insert, check out this eucalyptus insert!

    BuzzFeed writer Elizabeth loves this set:

    "Both the sheets and duvet cover are made of 100% eucalyptus lyocell / Tencel. The eucalyptus is naturally sourced and not treated with harmful dyes or chemicals. Also, they're built to last! I look forward to leaving these in my will to my various grandkids. These sheets are the most breathable sheets I've had in my life. I'm an incredibly hot sleeper, which is further aggravated by living in a NYC apartment building where the cast-iron radiators will really kick in during the middle of the night. When it comes to their level of smooth, it feels just as great running my hand over my flat sheet as slipping underneath it at night. I've had lots of soft sheets in my day, including the kind that feel like a T-shirt material that truly were very nice on my college dorm mattress. But nothing's compared to these. So really, these might've ruined other sheets for me." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it from Sijo for $224 (available in six sizes and eight colors).

    20. A HyperChiller for transforming too-hot coffee into a refreshing cold brew in under a minute. But don't limit yourself to coffee! HyperChill any drink that's taking too long to cool in the fridge.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Picture this: You've had a hard day. Boss was a jerk, clients drive you up a wall. You stop at that liquor store and they have that beer you like, but it's not refrigerated. So you run home, wrap a wet towel around it and pop it in the freezer, hoping for a quick turnaround. But it's never quick enough. You wait. Anticipation turns to disappointment. The moment is gone. When it finally cools, it's too late: you've already said something mean to a friend or your spouse. You lashed out, venting your frustrations. It's not their fault. It's not your fault. Get this hyper-chiller thingy." —Griffilicious

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    21. A durable inflatable lounge pool you'll probably find a way to turn into your new WFH space.

    image of reviewer floating on a donut floaty in a full homech inflatable pool
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The HOA pool was locked down due to the pandemic, and I knew the heat was coming. So I ordered this gem. It inflated in minutes (the secret is a hairdryer and a sawed-off water bottle). This baby is strong. It can take 100+-degree Palm Springs heat AND the neighbor's annoying cat who likes to rest his claws on the top while he drinks. Deep enough for me to float on my raft and pretend I don't have a care in the world. This pool is a lifesaver." —L. Harris

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    22. A pack of three silicone ice cube trays each with 24 cavities, which means THREE TIMES the amount of ice as regular trays, which means less waiting time in between fills. You'll truly have ice for days!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "With these trays, ice cubes are easy to remove. I like their size and the fact that they come in a three-pack. They really do just pop out when you press the back! All together I'm very satisfied with these ice cube trays!" —Katherine Webb

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    23. A pack of microfiber cooling towels that only need to be soaked and wrung out for instant heat relief!

    four packs of u-pick cooling towels and four folded u-pick cooling towels
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I use this to cool me down when working in and out of my house. It comes in good colors and is long. I really like that I can wrap it around my head like a scarf and stay cool. It holds my hair out of the way during hot sweaty work. I also like that it comes with a bag for storage and a clip so you can hang the bag anywhere you want." —Kimberly R.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four pack sizes and eight color combinations).

    24. A cooling weighted blanket so you can still get the calming feel of a tight hug without the warmth that usually comes with it. And it's made from breathable hypoallergenic cotton so you can breathe easier, too.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Quarantine had me lonely, so I got this and it really helped me sleep. It feels like a hug. My friend, many states away, was stressed and lonely in his quarantine, so I got him one too, and he sleeps like a baby now. Wonderful for self or gift. I don't personally find it too hot in the summer if it's under 74 degrees, but If it's hotter than that, it might be too hot/heavy. Highly recommend." —Penny

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in 15 varied sizes and weights).

    25. An LED torchiere floor lamp because your overhead light shouldn't be making you sweat *that* much. Use the remote control to switch between three color temperatures and dim them down to your comfort level.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "After using this floor lamp for several weeks, here's my review: 1) the overall design is attractive and it complements the decor in any room, 2) it is slim and heavy at the base, ensuring that it stands firmly on the ground, 3) it is very bright, way brighter than my old halogen lamp, 4) the small side lamp further increases the overall brightness and makes a perfect reading lamp, 5) the remote is small and cute, and it controls the two lamps independently. In addition, it has a magnet so you can stick the remote on any metal surface, 6) there are three levels of color temperature brightness, and most importantly each level can be dimmed up to 15 levels, 7) it remembers the last setting when you turn on/off, 8) it is cool to the touch, making it safe around children and pets, 9) it is energy efficient since it is LED, 10) it does not heat up the room like halogen lamp. Overall I love this floor lamp. I own two so far and looking to buy two more for each of my four bed rooms. I highly recommend this product." —Tony

    Get it from Amazon for $61.99 (available in four colors).

    26. A bronzed palm leaf ceiling fan you can install inside or outside for some much-needed manufactured breezes.
