    1. A Jawbone UP Move tracker you strap on your wrist at night to tell the quality of your rest and the number of hours you sleep.

    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 Amazon for $9.89+ (available in four colors).

    2. A cool-mist humidifier that adds moisture to the air for a more sound sleep and hydrated skin. It also includes a night light feature!

    Plus, it has an auto shut-off option, so you don’t have to worry about it running once 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.

    3. A rejuvenating rosehip oil night serum packed with restorative ingredients.

    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 $11.50.

    4. And a moisturizing sleep mask that'll hydrate your skin for a refreshed morning glow.

    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 $27.04.

    5. A bottle of almond oil you can lather all over your body after your weekly body scrub to offer your skin a serious moisture boost.

    Promising Review: "I put this in my hair, on my face, and as a moisturizer for my body. It does not have a strong odor. Honestly, I do not really smell anything. I like how it makes my hair soft, but not oily. I will definitely purchase another bottle before it runs out. I am a first-time user and believe I like almond oil better then coconut oil now.” —Terri D

    Get it from Amazon for $12.93.

    6. A compact tower heater for a warm blast of air on those chilly nights.

    The heater features an eight-hour timer and heat shut-off function, so you don’t have to worry about it running all night long without any supervision.

    Promising Review: “This thing has been dropped, kicked, and knocked off tables due to living in a camper with a high-energy dog. But it keeps on going like a champ. I have to have two of them to heat my whole camper through the winter. But that’s no big deal.” —Misty

    Get it from Amazon for $61.91+.

    7. A touch-sensor bedside lamp with a color-changing light so you can have a dance party in your dreams.

    The lamp has three levels of brightness.

    Promising Review: “I bought this because it was low-profile and LED. My husband goes to sleep a couple of hours before I do, and our standard bedside lamp kept him awake. Because this is low-profile, it does not shine in his face. The three brightness choices are just bonuses. The dimmest setting provides more than enough light for me to move around the bedroom, letting our dogs in and out.” —Tinker

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99.

    8. A Wave sleep sound machine to transport you to Dreamland with the sweet 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.

    9. A lip sleeping mask — which includes hyaluronic acid — to banish flaky skin on your lips while you rest.

    Promising Review: “I have chronically dry lips and tried every lip balm, mask, or lip treatment out there with no real long-lasting results. However, this product has worked wonders for me so far. I have used it every night since I have had it. And I can tell that my lips are moisturized and don't have as much need for lip balm throughout the day. It smells nice, isn’t too thick, and has a slight tingle when you first put it on, letting you know it’s working. Also, this jar is going to last a long time because you only need a tiny bit. A little goes a long way with this stuff!” —Delaney

    Get it from Amazon for $12+ (available in six scents).

    10. An argan oil hair mask filled with vitamins and nutrients, so your luscious locks will stay luxurious all night long.

    Promising Review: ”I've only used this twice so far and I see a huge difference! My hair is so damaged from bleach, color, and heat. But after using this, my hair is so silky! I'm happy with this product!” —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $12.30.

    11. A gel moisturizing gloves and socks set for hands and feet softer than a cotton ball made of marshmallows.

    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.

    12. A digital timer to cut off your lamps or other devices without you having to do a damn thing.

    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 $9.98.

    13. A bottle of eye gel for lifting and firming your eye area, making for a refreshed appearance in the morning.

    Promising Review: “Since using this gel, my fine lines and puffiness around my eyes were markedly less noticeable. This product is priced right and lasts a long time. I can tell you that it really does work! I may have to check out other products made by this company. So far, I'm very happy with the results!” —CDStokes

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97+ (available in two sizes).

    14. A slim sleep mask to block out the light while helping avoid puffy or tired-looking eyes.

    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 $6.95+ (available in 16 colors).

    15. A set of headband headphones so you can listen to your favorite nighttime tunes without worrying about your earbuds falling out while you sleep.

    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 $15.97 (available in eight colors).

    16. A jar of CeraVe night cream for restoring moisture to your skin so you can wake up looking even more flawless.

    Promising Review: “This stuff is thick, creamy, moisturizing, and lovely! It’s my new go-to night cream. I lather this stuff on at night on top of a few other lotions I use every day and night. My skin soaks it in by morning. It's so nice to wake up with a fresh, hydrated face.” —Ana T

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98.

    17. And a quiet Eufy RoboVac that'll keep evil dust bunnies and dirt from piling up while you snore down.

    The vacuum includes an anti-scratch tempered glass cover, infrared sensor to help it avoid bumping into obstacles, and drop-sensing tech so it can avoid falls.

    Promising Review: 
    “This is a great vacuum! It scared our dog for a couple hours, but now she ignores it. It cleans a crazy amount of dust and dirt that you wouldn’t think would accumulate that fast!” —Hsw55

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99.
