1.

A sunrise-simulating alarm clock that’ll make you feel a bit better about *hopping* into bed knowing that it’ll ~gently~ wake you up in the morn. Sometimes planning ahead can really help put you at ease!


Urban Outfitters

Promising review: “i love this alarm clock!! I bought it because it’s bunny-shaped but it surprisingly helps me wake up in the morning lol. Super cute, has a bunch of colors, and makes a good night-light as well. It’s a little tricky to use at first but the directions help a lot.” —avocadoabby

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $38.95.

2.

A hypoallergenic gel pillow with filling that stays steady as you get into your perf falling-asleep position, then toss and twist in all your weird sleeping positions you swear by.


BuzzFeed

This won our low-priced pick for the best pillow on BuzzFeed Reviews. As a BF shopping editor, I was convinced and bought a set for my own bed about a year ago. They feel full enough to support me while I sleep but also look nice and fluffed up while my bed is made. FYI, they ship flat in plastic packaging, so you’ll have to let ’em fluff up a bit. (But so worth it.)

Promising review: “I have purchased what feels like a hundred pillows in the last two years. These are finally the right ones!! My partner actually bought them first. I loved them so much I asked where they were found, and then purchased these for myself. I am a side sleeper, and I like a firmer mattress. These are sturdy enough for side sleeping while being fluffy and soft. They retain their shape and bounce back with minimal fluffing. If you are a side sleeper, I highly recommend these pillows. My massage technician and I both saw a dramatic improvement in my shoulder/neck muscles after I bought these.” —dar

Get two from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in queen or king).

3.

A set of ~cooling~ silky pillowcases with a side made of Japanese cooling fabric and other side made of 100% cotton in case you’re forever on the prowl for the cool side of the pillow. This is it!


Amazon

Promising review: “Best…Pillowcases…Ever!! I run hot all the time, especially at night. This really helps to keep me cool at night. I fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up refreshed. The cool side of the pillow is always your side of the pillow! I actually sometimes get cold during the night. If you wake up in the middle of the night sweating, you need to get this!” —Kim

Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

4.

Glam satin pillow cases that I own and love! If you’re a hot sleeper, these’ll help keep you nice and cool. Plus, they’re more moisturizing for your skin and hair than sleeping on cotton pillow cases.


Amazon

I am a ROASTING HOT sleeper and these really do make a nice lil’ difference in my sleep routine. I love mine so much that I pack them for trips!

Get two from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in three sizes, and 22 colors and styles).

5.

Or a pretty satin bonnet to keep your curly, textured, or protective styled hair in tip-top shape while you get your beauty rest.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I have medium back length locs (dreads), Silk headscarves on either slide of my head or my locs hang out so I thought I’d give this product a try.

1) it’s pretty so I don’t feel like I’m actually wearing a bonnet lol

2) it protects my edges and doesn’t slide off one bit due to the black elastic band

3) I can use this as my locs continue to grow down my back

4) the inside is lined with a thick soft silk-like material which is a plus as it’ll manage frizz and prevent breakage

I will never purchase another silk head scarf again!!!” —Mrs. Smith

Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in 10 styles, in short or long).

6.

A clamp-on wooden shelf in case you need a surface for your water glass and charging phone — the essentials!


Overstock

Get it from Overstock for $34.64.

7.

A reading pillow for your bedtime ritual of JUST one chapter. Psst, you may wanna buy in doubles because your dog is gonna wanna lounge all over it too.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “My pillow came earlier than it said and we have only had it two days and it’s perfect. But now I’m going to have to buy another one because my dog took it from me!” —K. Smith

Get it from Amazon for $37.99.

8.

A pregnancy pillow to prop you up in allll the right places in case you find that you get your comfiest when you use multiple pillows. (I swear you can, should use this even if you aren’t pregnant.)


Amazon

FYI if you *are* pregnant, it’s designed to replace the need for multiple pillows to support you. And the cover is machine-washable!

Promising review: “I’m not pregnant but have lower back issues that have led to sciatic and hip pain. This pillow gives me great support in laying right and not rolling into a position that causes me lower back pain upon awaking. It took me a while to get the right position to lay with it and even found two or three ways to lay with it. The first night I didn’t sleep well with it because I was used to laying with all that extra, but the second night on was fine. The covers can be removed to be washed. I love it, it’s helped me a lot.” —Lisa Teaney

Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in seven colors).

9.

A dreamy pillow spray I’ve taken to using the past few weeks to help lull me to sleep. Its blend of lavender, vetivert, and chamomile smell fancy without being overpowering.


Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

Getting sticker shock? You only use a few sprays so this thing’ll last awhile. Plus I’ve woken up lots of mornings in my life wishing I’d paid $25 for just one night of good sleep. The packaging recs spraying it on your bedding but I find a spray on each of my queen-size bed’s two pillows is plenty to help put me in the mood to drool all over my pillows. That’s how you KNOW the sleep is good (or at least for me). It’s fine to spray right before getting into bed *and* will even look nice sitting on your nightstand in case you’re someone (like me) who remembers all the things you need to do before bed once you crawl into bed.

Get it from Amazon for $25.

10.

A tea for bedtime you can fix as an nighttime ritual to help put your mind and body at ease.


Amazon

I drink this stuff when I know I’ll have a hard time getting to a restful state. Maybe it’s mostly placebo but it works for me!

Get it from Amazon for $4.78.

11.

Melatonin gummy vitamins that are yummy to chew on but also will help ease you into Dreamland. (I’ve tried basically every version of melatonin gummies and these are my fave.)


Walmart

I’ve had nightmares thanks to other sleep vitamins (i’m talking VIVID ones, like see-a-demon-in-my-bedroom-corner ones) but these have never done me wrong. Plus, they’re quite budget-friendly.

Get a 60-pack from Walmart for $4.50.

12.

And some melatonin sleep tablets for those moments when you wake up in the middle of the night and would give your first-born just to get back to sleep. I can also personally vouch that these WORK.


Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

If you haven’t already guessed from my various sleep aids mentioned above, I’m not the best sleeper. I’ve had a bottle of these parked on my nightstand for the past few weeks and (as of publish) have used them three times when I’ve woken up in the middle of the night (not exactly at 3 a.m. each time but in that general area). They’re super easy to either chew or let dissolve, meaning you don’t need to wash it down with a gulp of water. I even chewed it with my night guard in, which is gross but helpful info! But most importantly, they helped me go back to sleep quickly without weird side effects.

Get it from Amazon for $7.96.

13.

A sound machine with a 1,000-day satisfaction guarantee in case you have a doubts about if it’ll truly block out all the rando fireworks that seem to define Summer 2020.


Amazon

Promising review: “This sound machine has literally changed my life. It’s like nothing I have ever experienced. Our neighbor likes to spend his mornings shoveling gravel on a cement surface with a metal shovel about 4 to 5 feet from my window (like 6 a.m. early) and to be honest, I was starting to have some pretty dangerous thoughts about stealing his shovel and….well, one goes down some pretty dark paths when they suffer from insomnia already and then when they finally fall asleep only to be woken up by a shovel scraping down a sidewalk. Okay, so the machine somehow completely covers the noise from the shovel, the toilet flushing next to my room, dogs barking, etc. It is incredible.” —MorAvFire

Get it from Amazon for $38.99+ (available in black and white).

14.

A tablet stand so you can watch, browse, or read during that chunk of time you’re getting cozy but aren’t ready to go to sleep just yet. No more of your tablet falling on your face bc of tired hands!


Amazon

Promising review: “I bought one to hold my iPad Mini when I’m using it in bed at night. It seems very much like a gag gift, but it’s actually perfect for what I wanted. My hands start to fall asleep when I’m lying in bed at night holding the iPad above my face. (Yes, I have dropped the iPad on my face and given myself a bloody lip. Twice. First world problems.) This is adjustable and feels very heavy and sturdy so you don’t worry about it collapsing or tipping over on your bed. I sleep flat on my back and this thing is still able to put the iPad at an angle where I can see it even without being very propped up. It’s shockingly useful” —Ellie

Get it on Amazon for $39.95.

15.

A cleansing balm to help ~gently~ remove your day’s makeup and debris without robbing your skin of moisture. Here’s to a cleanser that’ll knock out your mascara residue so it doesn’t end up on your pillowcases!


Versed

Promising review: “I am a licensed aesthetician in the state of Florida. I love LMS and was looking for an affordable like brand that was not almost $100. I came across this cleansing balm and fell in love you will not be disappointed it leaves your skin youthful glowing refreshed and the aroma is so relaxing this is a must have!” —Anonymous

Get it from Versed for $17.99.

16.

And The Makeup Eraser to help you swipe off the last bits. It’s super soft and won’t irritate sensitive skin while ridding yourself of the day. Trust me, I have incredibly sensitive skin with rosacea and I use one every night.


BuzzFeed

I stan these HARD. I wear a ton of makeup and have sensitive skin, and they’re large enough that I can use them about four times before I actually have to wash them. So, what’s the secret? Apparently the weave of the microfiber. These babes are the best. AND this one won as our mid-priced pick for best makeup remover on BuzzFeed Reviews.

Get it from Amazon for $20.

17.

A temperature-regulating comforter made of 100% eucalyptus, which’ll be super handy if you’re a hot sleeper like me. Sweating as soon as you slide between the sheets is NOT conducive to a restful night.


Buffy

I have several friends who own one of these comforters and love it! *Plus* the eucalyptus used to make these uses 10 times less water to grow than cotton and the company lets you try out the comforter for seven nights before you commit to buying.

Promising review: “I have gone from always being cold while I sleep (think flannel sheets and big duvet) to SWELTERING hot with sweaty and uncomfortable nights. For the last couple years I have been switching up my bedding, even my mattress, trying to find ways to stay cooler. I came across this in an Instagram ad, and thought why not?! So glad I got the breeze comforter. It is light and breathable, while still making you feel cozy. Very happy with this find. Highly recommend for any other hot sleepers looking for some relief.” —Cameron C.

Get it from Buffy for $180+ (available in three sizes).

18.

A Himalayan salt lamp to provide your room with a soft, amber glow conducive to catching some Z’s.


Amazon

Get two from Amazon for $16.99.

19.

A cruelty-free double sleep mask with a hydrating option and also a hair growth minimizer mask in case you remove hair on your lip, chin, or jawline. You can even do the regular mask up top, hair minimizer from upper lip, down at the same time.


European Wax Center

This mask helps restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier, smooth the look of fine lines, and provide eight hours of continuous hydration. The hair growth minimizer in the pink mask helps visibly reduce the appearance and thickness of hair re-growth in between waxes. I’ve been using this roughly once a week about a month now and my skin feels super soft and refreshed in the morning. Plus it smells nice without being *too* fragrant.

Get it from European Wax Center for $34.50.

20.

And while we’re on the skincare beat, pimple patches you can stick on a spot that’s come to a head while you sleep for the night and then peel off in the morn to find all kinds of ick on it that used to be inside your blemish(!!!). After all, you shouldn’t be picking at breakouts anyway!


amazon.com, amazon.com

FYI, I use these and they work so well that I curse the sky that these weren’t around when I was in middle school before I went on Accutane. Yep, I shout at the sky EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Promising review: “So I won’t show you any of the gory details but man do these things work. I don’t wear makeup, so it’s perfect for just covering it up to go out because it’s almost exactly my skin color. More than that, wearing it at night it takes away most of the bump by the time I wake up. I will say that these are more for that specific annoying acne that like it’s huge and that you kind of have to bust, but that only makes it bigger. But it’s amazing, it might take a couple days but it definitely helps acne get back to normal looking faster. Update: Here are the gory details. The back acne is real.” —Rebecca Gabriela Terrones

Get a pack of 36 dots from Amazon for $12.50 (also available in an invisible dot or larger version).

21.

And XL patches for covering larger areas so you aren’t playing connect the dots with a bunch of tiny little circle patches.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Love these! I had previously bought the small patches for individual pimples, but wanted bigger ones for the larger pores on my nose. I sleep in them and where for 10–12 hrs, and find then when I remove it I am able to extract my pores sooooo easily. Plus seeing all that gunk on the patch is sooooo satisfying. They def have my nose looking cleaner than ever…. I use it about once a week!” —Kaiti

Get 8 XL square patches from Amazon for $8.50.

22.

A humidifier because even in the summer, this gadget can help you feel better while you’re sleeping, which means more sleep. Just fill ‘er up before you head to bed! (Also it’ll help keep your skin looking, feeling great.)


Amazon

Trust me, running one of these in your bedroom while you sleep will take your skin’s moisture up a notch and may even help you sleep a little more soundly. They help me! This cool mist model has a 1.5-liter tank that can put moisture into the air for up to 16 hours of continuous operation. FYI, this size tank is good coverage for bedrooms, offices, and other medium-sized rooms.

Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

23.

A rechargeable electric toothbrush that won’t break the bank and will help you execute your nightly dental routine, even at peak laziness. Just hold it there. It does the brushing for you!


Amazon

TBH, an electric toothbrush is the reason I brush my teeth at night.

Promising review: “My teeth have been through some pretty rough times. I am a heavy coffee- and wine-drinker. I love this product. In one use I already feel a huge difference from using a standard brush. My teeth feel as clean as getting it done by the dentist. I will give it a try with some strong whitening toothpaste to see if I notice a difference.” —Nano.Reef

Get it from Amazon for $39.94.

24.

Lightweight bamboo pajamas made of viscose material that’ll feel so soft on your skin and won’t turn your bed into a sweatbox 30 minutes into that dream about Captain America.


Amazon

Promising review: “I do not ever write product reviews, but I just feel the need to share with other women that sleep hot, how great these pajamas are! They are so soft and comfy! I’ve been sleeping great since I’ve been wearing these PJs. I sleep hot and usually will wake up every night with the night sweats or the overheated feeling, but I’ve yet to have this issue with these bamboo PJs. I seem to keep an even body temperature all night long. After sleeping in them for two nights I was convinced these are the answer to a cooler and better sleep, so I ordered more. I normally wear a size small, so I ordered a small and they fit perfectly!! I think that I’ll also order these PJs with the pants, for lounging around the house. If you suffer from night sweats or overheat while you sleep, THESE BAMBOO PJs ARE THE ANSWER!!!” —Laurie

Get the set from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in S-4X and in a 17 colors).

A quiet Honeywell tower fan made to deliver a blast of cool air to the whole room without creating a ton of noise. And be sure to keep the remote by your bed in case it’s working too well in the middle of the night.


Amazon

Promising review: “Outstanding! Mrs. Wingnut needs a fan blowing on her at night to sleep well. No, the ceiling fan on high isn’t enough. We were using existing fans we owned, but both of them died recently. We had never used a tower fan such as this design but were willing to take a chance. Eight speeds! VERY quiet at lower speeds, yet still not as loud as the old nine-inch diameter fans were at the highest speed. The bright blue power light on top of this model is indeed dimmable and can be turned off while the fan is running. You can choose to oscillate or not. For Mrs. Wingnut’s sleeping purposes, this fan gets set to the highest speed and the power light turned off. One thing we hadn’t anticipated that is a big plus — we had to use a small table to elevate the old fans high enough off the floor. The base already elevates this thing a bit and the rest of the height takes it up high enough for her needs. Awesome! Small footprint!!!” —Dr. Horrible F. Wingnut

Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in black or white).

27.

Collagen eye masks you can easily apply and take off without leaving bed. Here’s to your peepers looking as well-rested as you feel.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “These make a visible difference. I recommend using them at night, 20 minutes before bed, while lying down, as they do tend to shift a bit due to how much moisture they contain. Great patches. Will be reordering. Lifesaver for winter skin and under-eye dry patches!” —Amazon Customer

Get 12 pairs from Amazon for $15.99.

28.

And a collagen lip sleep mask for swiping on at the last minute before you hit that pillow.

Get them from Amazon for $23.99.


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “Best eye mask you can buy! I’ve tried them all and this eye mask is FAR superior to all other masks. It blocks out 100% of the light, is light as a feather, and, best of all, has a marshmallow-soft cushioning that cups your entire eye making it a complete blackout for the best sleep. Also it does not tangle in my hair like past masks I’ve tried. It’s truly a dream mask!” —Diana
