There are few things in this world that we love more than sleep (tacos, puppies, maybe our families… eh, we guess they make the cut). Bottom line: Sleep is bae and we find that we need our seven to eight hours of Zzzs each night as much as we need our daily breakfast of pancakes, bacon and orange juice. #SelfCare, am I right?

There are some nights, however, when counting sheep just isn’t cutting it. Let these 25 amazon sleep products do the work for you instead, as they promise to have you falling (and staying) asleep in no time. The best part is they’re all* highly rated by other Amazon shoppers, ad we’ve tested some of them ourselves so we’re extra confident you’ll love them.

*OK, so there’s one item at the end of the list that’s not quite as highly rated, but it’s so unusual we couldn’t not tell you about it.

1. The perfect pillow that’s just waiting to be slept on

Pillows are the first step toward getting a good night’s rest. But shopping for the perfect pillow requires a lot of research to ensure you land your head on something soft, cool and comfortable. We’ve done the leg work for you by testing some of the best pillows on the market. We had one goal: to find the perfect pillow! We’ve done that and the result is—drumroll, please—the Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow!

It’s made with Bamboo to keep your head cool throughout the night and has shredded memory foam inside that will not go flat or lumpy over time. All this talk about pillows is making us sleepy.

Second to having the right pillow is slipping between a comfortable, inviting set of sheets. Our tester tried 11 of the most popular bed sheets people are buying to find out which were above and beyond the rest, and these super budget-friendly Mellanni sheets really wowed her. Not only did we name them the Best Value, but they ranked above all but Brooklinen’s $149 sheets, and the tester said they were easily the softest she tried. And, I mean, over 50,000 positive reviews is really saying a LOT.

A comforter that’s too thick will leave you waking up sweaty, but grab one that’s too thin and you’ll be too cold to sleep well. LinenSpa makes the best affordable comforters we’ve tested, even outperforming the cult-favorite Buffy comforter in terms of quality, comfort, and definitely value. The microfiber fabric feels decadent, and the best part is this comforter cleans up nice—in the washing machine!

While waking up to a room full of sunshine sounds peaceful and refreshing, truthfully, it’s better left as a scene in a Disney movie for many of us. That’s because bright light is the last thing you want to see when you’re trying to sneak in some extra Zzzs. These blackout curtains are a quick fix that block out almost all light.

One of our editors has two sets of these in her home, and she raves about how thick and luxurious the fabric is. There are different colors to choose from and each package comes with two panels. There are different length options too, so you can find a great set no matter how big or small your windows are. Feel free to leave them up all year, too, as they insulate heat in the winter and deflect extra warmth from the sunshine in the summertime.

The winter months bring about a lack of sunlight that can make it super difficult to get up in the morning. Enter the Philips Sunrise Alarm Clock, which simulates sunlight by gradually getting brighter until your specific wake up time. Besides helping you wake up more naturally, it also has a tap-to-snooze alarm (just in case).

When combined with the blackout curtains above, it’s incredibly useful for when you have to get up when it’s still dark outside or for when you want to sleep later but don’t feel like losing the whole day. Win-win!

Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn with this eye mask that’s as useful as it is chic. Made with 100% silk material and filled with lavender and flax seeds, it blocks light out and provides calming scents so you can fall asleep and relax faster wherever and whenever you need to.

Lavender seeds have been said to boost relaxation and promote better sleep, while flax seeds are able to retain heat, providing soothing warmth. The mask is also curved to fit comfortably around the nose and to prevent it from falling off.

If you’re looking for an unscented version that’s great at blocking out light, we recommend the Nidra Deep Rest Eye Mask ($9.95 on Amazon). Why? It was our number one choice when we tested all the best eye masks and over 3,200 customers agree!

9. A weighted blanket to make things cozy

Weighted blankets have become a popular buy throughout the last year due to claims that they relieve anxiety and improve sleep. The ideal weight should be about 10% of your body weight so it feels like you’re being cuddled as you drift off to sleep. While we haven’t tried this up-and-coming Amazon all-star, one of our reviewers did try two other popular weighted blankets to see if they worked and loved the experience whether she was sleeping or cuddling up on the couch.

Each Weighted Idea blanket is made of seven layers of 100% cotton, hypoallergenic material that contains non-toxic, quiet, and odorless beads, and considering some weighted blankets cost hundreds of dollars, we’re loving the idea of one that’s less than $100.

10. A cozy heated blanket for those colder nights

Reviews: 395
Rating: 3.9 stars

Heated blankets are perfect for when the thermostat just isn’t cutting it, or for when you’re trying to keep the heat down to save money on your electricity bills but still want to be toasty warm. This Sunbeam blanket has several heat settings, including a pre-heat function so your bed’s already warm when you climb in. The wires are also thin enough that you won’t notice them too much—a common problem with electric blankets.

While Amazon reviewers love Sunbeam’s blankets, they actually underwhelmed our tester. Our top pick for heated blankets on Amazon is actually made by Serta. It costs a bit less at $115, but it’s 100% polyester and its controller felt cheap. But both the Serta and Sunbeam blankets are machine washable, so there’s that.

11. The Sunbeam Heated Mattress Pad that will change how you sleep forever

If you’re someone who is always cold, then this heated pad will make a great addition to your bed. As a bonus, it could go great with your new heated blanket! While Sunbeam left us wanting more warmth with their heated blankets, this heated mattress pad is still a cheaper alternative that will get the job done compared to some of the more costly options out there. For example, it features dual-side controllers so you and your partner can control your own heat settings (of which there are 10)—no more fighting over the covers. It also comes with a safety feature that shuts the pad off automatically after 10 hours, so you can drift to sleep without a care in the world.

If you’re looking for a trusty essential oil diffuser that’s beloved by many, this one from InnoGear doesn’t disappoint. In fact, we named it the best essential oil diffuser because it provides a delightful, scented mist with a run time of up to 11 hours thanks to a larger reservoir, so you can enjoy all your favorite oils and it features a sleek and stylish design that fits in with most any decor.

We also enjoyed the different color options for the light that add a relaxing ambiance to any room. And it has a safety function that turns the machine off automatically whenever water runs out, which is key when you’re drifting off to sleep.
