Between anxiety and insomnia, I’ve always had trouble sleeping, and I’m not alone. Chances are, you or someone you know is not getting enough sleep, and that can have a serious impact on your health. In the last few years, a few of us on the Gear Team have worked tirelessly to transform our bedrooms into the comfiest, coziest places possible to help coax ourselves into that ever-elusive restful night of sleep.
We’ve tested dozens of sleep products for various guides and reviews–everything from sheets, and weighted blankets to sound machines and sex toys. The best of the best are listed here, and we can attest that each one of these has helped us sleep a little better at night. I hope they help you, or a loved one, too.
Updated December 2023: Updated pricing and availability for most items on the list, added new links to a few products, added the Gravity Original Weighted Blanket, Beats Fit Pro Earbuds, Helix Sleep Midnight Luxe mattress, and updated copy throughout.
Be sure to check out our many other buying guides this season, including the Best Gifts to Relieve Stress, Gifts for New Parents, and Great Gifts Under $25.
