    1. This dimmable lunar lamp, so you can set the mood for sleep and get rid of those glaring overhead lights. Reviewers love that the touch sensor allows them to turn out the light when they're drifting off, instead of scrambling to find their remote or switch.

    It's USB-rechargeable, too!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $28.99.

    2. This plush hypoallergenic quilt that'll make you feel like you're sleeping on a cloud. It'll never go flat, either, thanks to the box stitch that keeps the ultra-soft microfibre fill exactly where it needs to be (and not pooled around your feet).

    Reviewers love that it's incredibly soft and free of the sharp quills found in traditional down duvets. Plus, it features special loops that'll keep your duvet cover in place.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $27.33+ (available in eight sizes and 11 colours).

    3. This light-blocking eye mask that's specially contoured to block out every distraction. Not only is it engineered to be light and breathable, but the specially profiled inner pockets will never press on your eyeballs during REM sleep.

    There's even a nifty nose piece that prevents light leakage.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $14.99 (available in two colours).

    4. This whisper-quiet humidifier that'll help keep the air in your room clean and moist (sorry), and also help mitigate snoring. Reviewers love that it doesn't have any annoying blinking lights, which is great if you need absolute darkness to sleep.

    A single fill allows it to run for 18 hours, so you can set it and forget it. Plus, it has an auto shut-off function!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $34.99+ (available in two sizes and two colours).

    5. A sleep aid metronome that'll help you doze off in a flash. Using a neat lil' light projection, it'll help you slow down your breathing and calm your pulse — creating optimal conditions for falling into a deep, relaxing slumber.

    Worried about intrusive thoughts? Following the contraction and expansion of the light projection is an easy way to distract your brain from thinking about your to-do list (or anything else).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $79.90.

    6. Some breathable gel-infused pillows, so now every side can be the cool side. It has just the right amount of ~squish~ and support, and even has a ventilated design to help prevent night sweats.

    According to reviewers, it's super supportive and helps alleviate neck pain and headaches, too. Bonus: It's also hypoallergenic!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $49.99.

    7. A pack of light-dimming stickers that'll help soften the glare on your light-up gadgets (so you can finally get some rest). The best part is that they won't block out the light entirely, so you'll still be able to read your alarm clock in the middle of the night.

    "Buying these light-dimming stickers was the best money I've spent in a while. I just popped them onto my devices and the lights were instantly duller. They come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, making it easy to find the perfect one for each device. I can still see that the lights are on, but they're not nearly as annoying." —Kaysey Davis

    8. A natural pillow spray that reviewers say has made them fall asleep faster than ever before. It's infused with lavender, vetiver, and wild chamomile, a trifecta of naturally sleep-inducing herbs that'll guide you into slumber with just a few spritzes. And since it's 100% natural, it's also suitable for pregnant people!

    "I'm very much into aromatherapy, and I've found that by pairing the scent with my nighttime routine, it signalled to my brain that it was time to start winding down for the night. I love lavender, so that definitely helps, and I can see a definite difference between the nights I use it and don't use it in terms of anxiety about sleep. This has also really helped with the panicky feeling I usually get when I wake up — once I'm able to identify the smell, it gives my brain something to focus on and helps me calm down." – Sarah Rohoman

    9. A mini white noise machine that'll help you drift off and not take up precious bedroom real estate in the process. It's got an auto shut-off, which means you can doze off without a care in the world.

    10. These silky-soft spa socks that'll help your tootsies relax and keep them toasty, too. They have smooth seams and are infused with vitamin E, so your feet get treated to a lil' moisture, too.

    Reviewers say the combination of clary sage, chamomile, and lavender has improved the overall quality of their sleep (and made it easier to fall asleep, too).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $22.99.

    13. A weighted blanket, because you're never too old to feel swaddled. Reviewers say it's not just for insomniacs — it also helps with stress and anxiety, making it the next best thing to getting a hug from your favourite person.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $17.04.

    16. Some blue light-blocking glasses that'll help regulate your natural sleep patterns. Too much exposure to blue light can trick your body into thinking it's daytime, so pop these on the next time you're scrolling through the 'gram in bed.

    Reviewers love using it during the cooler months to help humidify the air, too.

    19. And lastly, these blackout curtains, so you can cocoon yourself in your chambers and block out the outside world. The wide grommets make them easy to install, and easy to draw closed, too — because sometimes you're too tired to struggle with your window treatments.
