Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A weighted blanket for helping you fall asleep and stay asleep longer — as a weighted blanket owner myself and someone whose anxiety would often get in the way of a peaceful night's sleep, I can personally tell you this is a purchase worth every penny, and I haven't slept better.

    The weight of the blanket you choose, should be about 10% of your body weight plus one.

    Promising review: "Over the past few years I’ve developed terrible sleep habits and thought that was just how it was going to be. I ordered this when it came up on a sale, and it has completely changed my sleep habits. No more night terrors, flopping around, laying awake for hours, or wild dreams. I’ve been sleeping through the night since having this blanket. The blanket doesn't make me hot, instead it’s a cozy warmth." —Ryan Westmoreland

    Get it from Amazon for $48.90+ (available in various colors, and sizes).

    2. And comforter clips to prevent your blanket from slipping out of the duvet cover for the millionth time this week.

    Four white comforter clips

    Promising Review: "These have been working great with our new duvet cover! I have actually used these same ones with two other duvet covers over the years, as well. I have never had any problems with them randomly coming off, and they were easy to use. Just be careful not to accidentally wash them or they will get a bit deformed." —Steven St. Clair

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $12.42.

    3. A color-changing nightlight that'll provide a soothing, colorful glow while still being v conducive to an uninterrupted night of sleep.

    The color-changing night light in four various colors — red, green, blue, and purple

    Features eight different colors, and three color modes — color-changing, soft white, or choose your favorite of the eight colors. It also has light-sensing technology so it'll turn on at dusk and turn off at dawn.

    Promising review: "We got this because our little one kept coming into our room in the middle of the night saying she was afraid of the dark. We hoped that was really the case and that she was not simply using it as an excuse to come sleep in our bed. From the very first night we put this in her bedroom, we have not had any visits. She sleeps through the night, and now so do my wife and I. Overall brightness really depends on the color you select. It has a good selection of colors, which the little one likes. The difference between the bright white and soft white is very minimal." —Dan H.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.98 (available in two finishes).

    4. A essential oil spray for some soothing, calming relief from everyday stressors. I own this in the lavender scent (review below), and truly swear by it!

    The bottle of lavender essential oils pray

    I first started using this lavender scent about a year ago. Life had bee getting pretty stressful and I was spending about three to four hours a day commuting to/from NYC for work. Little did I know that just one year later, I'd feel just as grateful for this essential oil spray and its calming properties during an even more stressful time. I wouldn't say this helps me fall right asleep, but the lavender scent is so relaxing. I just give this a few spritzes over my bed, lay down, and just... relax. It's an easy way to de-stress enough in order to be able to fall asleep at night without a million and one thoughts racing through my brain.

    Promising review: "This is hands down the best linen spray I've ever used. I spray it on my pillows and sheets every night, and on my rugs and curtains when my house needs a little pick me up. This really is an amazing product: a beautiful company, owned and run by women." —Karlsonisepik

    Get it from Amazon for $14.94.

    5. A gel-infused memory foam mattress topper that'll have you trading in your WFH desk set-up for a WFH bed set-up. Good morning co-workers on Zoom, welcome to my very productive work space.


    Promising review: "This made a big difference minimizing the pressure points of my too-firm mattress and made it actually comfortable. It saved me from having to return the mattress altogether!" —Lola

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in two styles, and eight sizes).

    6. Melatonin sleep gummies for those who dread the nightly struggle of trying to just fall asleep. Say adios to sleepless nights and hello to waking up fresh and ready to tackle the day ahead.

    The container of the sleep gummies

    I really like these gummies! I don't use them much anymore, but when I did, they were a total lifesaver at night. At the end of last year, I started taking medication for acne and one of the unfortunate side effects for the first few months was on/off nausea, and my anxiety getting even worse. I found it so hard to turn my brain off at night to go to sleep, so I turned to these gummies. I would take two about 20 minutes before bed time, and before I knew it, I was tired enough that my only thought was wanting to go to sleep, and not my nausea or my anxiety. I would definitely recommend these! And be sure to check out out our write-up of these sleep gummies!

    Promising review: "I've tried other sleep products like the sleep drinks and other gummies but I keep coming back for these! They've worked the best out of any of the others I've tried! I fall asleep fast and stay asleep for the whole night. I also wake up feeling great! No hangover feeling at all!" —Jaime Arnold

    Get a pack of 50 from Amazon for $14.39

    7. And if you've tried those gummies and liked them, but wanted something stronger, they also come in an extra strength option.

    The extra strength Olly sleep gummies

    Promising review: "My husband is a light sleeper, and these help him get a good night’s rest uninterrupted. These are easy to take, pleasant tasting, and effective in a non-habit forming manner. Highly recommend!" —tlstanley1

    Get a pack of 50 from Target for $19.59.

    8. A white noise sound machine for blocking out unwanted sounds when you're trying to fall asleep and stay asleep.

    The white noise sound machine in white on a night stand

    This has 10 different sound fans and 10 ambient noise variations to choose from including white noise, pink noise, and brown noise.

    Promising review: "This is so freaking great. I've been using white noise machines for years and years but ended up finding this through BuzzFeed. My old machine had looping audio and I hated it, so the fact that this is non-looping is everything. It's also very sleek and modern. I live in downtown Boston with construction sites literally boxing me in my building with noise nearly 24/7 between that and cops/fire trucks. This knocks out the noise and allows me to sleep or nap at any time of day without hearing anything." —ML

    Get it from Amazon for $45.96 (available in two colors).

    9. Bed sheet clips to ensure your sheets actually stay in place, no matter how all over the place you are in your sleep.

    The bed sheet clips keep a sheet clipped down on a mattress

    Promising review: "My husband turns a lot in his sleep and has always woken up with the fitted sheet halfway off his side of the bed. Bought these and we have NEVER once had to adjust the sheet in the morning! These are amazing!

    A tip for putting them on: lay the fitted sheet on top of the bed with the corners inside out (flipped up, off the mattress). Then attach these bands to each of the corners and tighten the bands. Once they are all clamped and tightened, THEN flip the corners onto the mattress. We have a pillow top 10" thick king mattress and this is the best method to get these on. Hope that helps!" —LindseyB

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in three styles).

    10. A chocolate sleep supplement that'll serve as a deliciously sweet way to get you feeling relaxed and sleepy, and ready to hit the hay.

    Promising review: "I definitely fall asleep faster and have a more restful sleep using these supplements! I've tried other supplements with melatonin in them to try to sleep, but they did not help. I'm not sure what's so special about these but they are the best!" —Lil

    Get a pack of 80 from Amazon for $28.99.

    11. A pair of blackout curtains for keeping your bedroom pitch black and not letting the sunlight disturb you and your precious beauty rest.

    The curtains in black

    Promising review: "I moved out to the woods and have been buying curtains for our new place online because it's hard to get out to the store. I have returned a couple sets of blackout curtains. These are great quality and will help with keeping heat in. They are also great at blocking out the light. They have a slight sheen and high-quality look. The curtains are white on the back side which is nice too." —Kindle Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in nine colors, and six sizes).

    12. An aromatherapy diffuser that'll mist your favorite scents into the air and create a super relaxing and zen environment.

    The diffuser in the cream yellow finish

    Features an auto-off function — lasts for about six to eight hours with a water tank capacity of 300 ml., and then turns off automatically five seconds after the water runs out. It has four time setting modes — one hour, three hours, six hours, and continuous, and two misting options. It also has seven LED light colors, and two light options — dim and bright.

    Promising review: "Love this item. You can hear a small sound of water bubbling, but it's so faint that it's kind of relaxing. I have it in my bedroom and noticed, (and hopefully it continues), that I have a better night of sleep. I find this unit well worth the money." —The Beas

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in three finishes).

    13. And of course, assorted essential oils to use with your new diffuser. You can mix and match scents or stick with one — whatever your heart desires!

    Promising review: "This is a great starter pack. The fragrance is not overpowering with a few drops and lasts. I didn't realize how much our sense of smell can affect our moods until using these oils. I sleep better with the lavender, and the citrus puts me in an energetic mood. The price is great and you get a variety of scents. The tops go on securely, so I can use some and then put them back in the box with no leaking. The lavender is very relaxing. I love how the box tells you what each oil does. I highly recommend these oils. If I could give 10 stars I would." —Sav

    Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $14.95.

    14. A contoured memory foam sleep mask that'll help alleviate pressure on your eyeballs — you're gonna practically feel your stress melt away as you drift off into a luxurious slumber.

    A reviewer wearing the sleep mask

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS!!!! I have a hard time sleeping at night and have anxiety. The pressure around my face from adjusting it tight is so comforting to me. I like that it's adjustable. It's also completely blackout. I have a big nose bridge bump, and a lot of the masks don't keep the light out because it goes over the nose. This is great, because it goes around it. It's great for naps, and when your husband wants to watch TV and you get easily annoyed at the TV light." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two colors).

    15. A fluffy comforter you're going to want to fall into all over again from the second you get out of bed each morning. That is, if you even make it out of bed in the morning after buying this.

    The white fluffy comforter

    Promising review: "Can't say enough good things about this comforter! It is beautiful in color, as well as super soft and cozy! The price made it super affordable for anyone wanting a great piece of inexpensive bedding. I am so happy with this that I purchased a second one for my daughter, and I am considering a third one. Just love it!!" —Dedewi

    Get it from Amazon for $39.90+ (available in four colors, and seven sizes).

    16. A sleep and wake-up lamp to help you fall asleep with a soothing pink light and wake up — even when it's pitch dark outside — with the help of calming, natural light.


    I have this amazing lamp, and I absolutely love it! The RelaxBreathe function is perfectly time to help me calm down at night, and is much easier to fall asleep to than my old method of just setting the sleep timer on my TV. The wake-up light brightness is just enough that it makes waking up before the sun more bearable. I've also used the wake-up light feature all night as a night light, too!

    Promising review: "LOVE IT! I struggle to fall asleep at night and wake up every morning. I dread the alarm, hit snooze constantly, and always seem to be running late. This alarm is totally customizable and wakes me up when I need to be up, helps me fall asleep at night, and has a unique, attractive appearance on my night stand. Best money spent on any sleep-related device!" —Alyssa Cary

    Get it from Amazon for $154.99+ (available in two styles).

    17. A hanging canopy that'll not only make any bed look more enticing than it already is, but will also double as a mosquito net so you can sleep without worrying about waking up with bites from the little buggies.

    The white hanging canopy hanging over a bed

    Promising review: "An amazing product for an amazing price. It literally took me under three minutes to set up. The coverage of the net completely encompasses my bed and having two access points helps immensely. Finally, for the first time, I can sleep without having the pesky high-pitched whine of a mosquito buzzing in my ear that would wake me up in the middle of the night. For the price and quality, you cannot go wrong. Well-constructed and it came packaged in a zippered carrying bag, incase you ever need to take it with you on camping trips. I would definitely buy it again, and I highly recommend this product." —Secured.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.47.

    18. A body pillow for basically turning your bed into one huge-as-heck pillow, because everyone knows pillows, pillows, and MORE pillows are what truly make beds impossibly comfy. And you can never have too many, honestly.

    Promising review: "This is the best thing I have done for myself all year. I suffer from hip issues, and this pillow has changed my life. I sleep like a rock now, and do not wake up with any pain. If you suffer from neck, back, shoulder, or hip pain, this pillow is a must-have." —Josh Lee

    Get it from Amazon for $99.95.

    19. A memory foam mattress topper that'll be so comfortable, you'll find yourself doing one of those dramatic, slow-motion fall backs into your bed every time you see it.

    Promising review: "Super comfortable, and soft, and plushy, and amazing. The scent is a little strong for a few days, then it dissipates. Best decision ever! My bed is literally better than a hotel bed, now." —LLCoolD

    Get it from Amazon for $35.01+ (available in two styles, and seven sizes).

    20. A tufted upholstered bed for a classy, elegant way to upgrade your sleeping space.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this upholstered bed. Never ordered furniture online before and was worried, but it turned out to be great. Delivery was quick and as other reviews said, it was very easy to put together. The detailing on the headboard was even better than in the picture. Highly recommend this product!" —Padmaja

    Get it from Wayfair for $209.99 (available in two colors, and three sizes).

    21. A pack of door stoppers so you can sleep without letting the sounds of slamming doors and cabinets disturb you.

    Promising Review: "This is a simple product that works. The bumpers prevent cabinet and room doors from slamming against the frame. I found them to be handy in households where people get up at different times and accidental door slamming wakes those who are trying to sleep." —Oil Can

    Get a pack of 100 from Amazon for $6.99.

    22. A shaggy throw blanket that'll make you feel like you're the filling of a delicious, warm burrito, and this throw is the toasty tortilla keeping you safe and protected.

    Promising review: "This blanket is so soft that I'll be switching from red to white wine so if I spill on it, I won't ruin my new favorite thing to cuddle with." —Kt

    Get it from Amazon for $34.98+ (available in various colors, and five sizes).

    23. And a pajama set that you'll wanna wear 24/7. Hey, we're all for your pajamas doubling as your WFH wardrobe.,

    Promising review: "Wow. These pajamas are fabulous. I love the slinky, soft, medium-weight fabric. When you slip them on, you will go 'Ahhhhhh,' they feel THAT good against the skin. I bought one pair in the pretty baby blue, and then came back for the navy. Rayon is notorious for shrinking, so I washed them on cold and let them air dry. I am 65-years-old, and have bought many, many pajamas in my lifetime. These are the best! Great bargain." —KarenR

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in various styles, and sizes XS–2XL).
