In-Depth Reviews

  • Who it’s best for

    1. Adults and children who weigh between 80 and 250 pounds

    2. Hot sleepers

    3. People who struggle to fall asleep

  • Highlights

    1. Open-knit design allows air to freely circulate

    2. Beadless construction ensures even weight distribution

    3. Comes in nine colors



Fill Material

100% cotton

Shell Material

100% cotton

Weight Options

8 lbs. (kids), 8 lbs. (travel), 15 lbs., 20 lbs., 25 lbs.

Weighted blankets have become massively popular in recent years. If you know someone who struggles with sleep due to anxiety, one of these hefty coverings could be a thoughtful, practical gift.

Thanks to its unconventional design, the Silk & Snow Knit Weighted Blanket effectively solves two common issues: overheating and uneven weight distribution. The blanket is composed of organic cotton yarns in a chunky open knit that allows for consistent airflow. Rather than using beads or pellets, the weighted effect is created through layered yarns, so the blanket won’t shift or clump during the night.

We’ve tested quite a few weighted blankets, and few of them match the Silk & Snow in terms of cooling or weight distribution. The yarns also feel exceptionally soft and easy on your skin. As an added bonus, the organic cotton is certified by GOTS, indicating an adherence to sustainable growth without chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

The general rule of thumb is that a weighted blanket should be roughly 10% of your body weight. Since this blanket is available in weights of 8, 15, 20, and 25 pounds, this means anyone who weighs between 80 and 250 pounds will probably find at least one comfortable option. The 8-pound blanket may be suitable for kids who weigh at least 80 pounds, but parents should consult with their child’s doctor before using a weighted blanket.

The Silk & Snow Knit Weighted Blanket comes with a 100-night sleep trial, which is fairly long for this type of product. If you select the wrong weight for your giftee, they can exchange their blanket for another size during the trial period.

  • Who it’s best for

    1. People who feel anxious around bedtime

    2. Anyone who enjoys aromatherapy

    3. Vegans

  • Highlights

    1. Spray contains an aromatic blend of chamomile, lavender, and vetivert

    2. Can be used to refresh pillows or sheets before bedtime

    3. Inexpensive with a long-lasting supply



Weighted blankets aren’t the only sleep accessory for people who have a hard time falling asleep due to feelings of stress and anxiety. The Deep Sleep Pillow Spray from This Works is a must-have for people who enjoy aromatherapy, scented candles, and other products that stimulate the nasal passages and soothe the mind.

The spray contains a blend of three popular essential oils used in aromatherapy: chamomile, lavender, and vetivert. Each is thought to have anxiety-reducing properties. Those who want to experience the spray’s full effects should lightly spritz their pillow, sheets, and even their pajamas before bedtime. During our tests, we found the spray ideal for falling asleep. The fragrance is noticeable and pleasant without overwhelming the nostrils.

This Works also offers the Sleep Plus Pillow Spray, which is made from the same ingredients but works a bit differently. This fragrance is designed to be motion-activated, so sleepers notice soothing bursts of aroma if they toss and turn or change sleep positions.

Both versions of the Pillow Spray are vegan-friendly. Even with daily use, one bottle can last up to four months. This Works ships to more than 50 countries. Free delivery is available in the U.S., Ireland, and the U.K.

  • Who it’s best for

    1. People who primarily sleep on their side

    2. Those who reside in loud neighborhoods

    3. Sleepers who share their beds with heavy snorers

  • Highlights

    1. Compact design fits snugly in the ear without affecting sleep

    2. Noise-canceling technology can prevent disturbances from snoring, traffic, and other disruptive sounds

    3. Rechargeable with a 28-hour battery life



The latest generation of QuietOn earbuds builds on its predecessors with the brand’s smallest and most advanced design to date. The QuietOn 3 sleep earbuds are compact enough to fit snugly inside the ear without protruding, so even side sleepers can rest their head on a pillow and still feel comfortable. Soft foam padding also reduces the painful buildup that often occurs with earbuds after long listening sessions.

The noise-canceling technology that drives these earbuds is pretty remarkable. During our tests, we found that the buds effectively suppress snoring, loud conversations, traffic noise, and other sounds that can disturb sleep. Each purchase comes with foam tips in four different sizes, so virtually anyone should be able to find the right balance of noise reduction and ear comfort.

The earbuds are equipped with rechargeable batteries that can perform for up to 28 hours. To maximize their lifespan, owners should periodically clean them with a dry cloth. Each purchase comes with a travel case, and the earbuds are covered under a 1-year warranty.

  • Who it’s best for

    1. Hot sleepers

    2. People who enjoy wearing soft garments to bed

    3. Those who prefer using eco-friendly products

  • Highlights

    1. Bamboo-derived fabric is soft, breathable, and sustainably sourced

    2. Wide selection of loungewear includes pajamas, robes, and sleep shorts

    3. All purchases backed by 100-night trial and 10-year warranty



Bamboo has dozens of practical uses, but comfortable sleepwear might not be the first one that springs to mind for most people. Cozy Earth aims to change that. The company has built its brand on sleep accessories and garments made of viscose derived from bamboo, a fabric that retains the natural softness and breathability of its botanical source.

Cozy Earth’s selection includes robes, pajama sets, lounge pants, shorts, and socks composed of bamboo-derived viscose with enough stretch to make them comfortable for sleep. Any of these items is suitable for sleepers who tend to overheat and need sleep clothes that feel cool to the touch.

You can also draw from an extensive size selection and multiple color options to find the ideal sleep garment for anyone on your shopping list. Viscose derived from bamboo is fully machine washable, so cleaning is quick and painless.

Cozy Earth offers free ground shipping for all U.S. orders, and each purchase includes a 100-night trial period with free returns. The company also backs each product with a 10-year warranty.

  • Who it’s best for

    1. People who reside in noisy neighborhoods

    2. Light sleepers

    3. Small children

  • Highlights

    1. Each device features non-looping pink noise programs

    2. Reasonable pricing and free shipping for most models

    3. Wide selection includes travel and kid-friendly machines



The Dohm Sound Machine was introduced in 1962, and has remained popular ever since. Today, Dohm products are part of the Yogasleep lineup. In addition to the standard machine, customers can choose from more advanced devices equipped with features such as alarm clocks, night lights, and sleep timers, as well as travel-size and child-friendly options.

Dohm machines play pink noise, which combines high and low frequencies to create a sound that many people find more harmonious and less harsh on the ears than white noise. The noise effectively masks car horns, barking dogs, and other ambient sounds that can disrupt sleep for people who live in relatively loud places. Light sleepers who tend to wake up at the slightest disturbance can also benefit from using a noise machine.

The noise playback is programmed to play continuously without distracting “loop” sounds that occur when a program ends and starts again from the beginning. Some of the child-oriented devices also feature built-in libraries with nature sounds and lullabies, and the Soundscene Sound Machine has a colorful light projector.

Yogasleep offers discount bundles that include multiple machines. All sound machines are backed by 101-night trial periods.

  • Who it’s best for

    1. People who live in places prone to chilly weather

    2. Anyone who owns a mattress up to 15 inches thick

    3. Sleepers with rustic bedroom decors

  • Highlights

    1. Each item made from luxuriously soft brushed flannel

    2. Choice of bundles to accommodate different bedding needs

    3. 365-night sleep trial





100% cotton flannel

With so much attention on mattresses and pillows, the role sheets play in our sleep often goes overlooked. The right sheets should provide adequate warmth at night without making you feel overly hot or sweaty.

If you know someone who struggles with feeling too cold or too hot while they sleep, Brooklinen’s flannel sheets are a good solution either way. The sheets and pillowcases in this collection are crafted from brushed cotton flannel, an exceptionally soft material that is both breathable and cozy.

The standard Core bundle includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases, making it a good option for anyone who needs a starter set. You can also opt for the Hardcore bundle, which adds a matching duvet cover and two extra pillowcases. Brooklinen offers five sizes ranging from twin to California king, as well as six classic plaid patterns.

One important thing to keep in mind: The fitted sheet has a maximum pocket depth of 15 inches. Before you buy the sheet set as a gift for someone, be sure to inquire about the thickness of that person’s mattress to make sure the set is compatible.

Each item is fully machine washable. Brooklinen allows returns within 365 days of delivery, so your gift recipient will have ample time to test them out and decide if they’re a good fit.

  • Who it’s best for

    1. People who have trouble falling or staying asleep

    2. Those who enjoy hot drinks before bed

    3. Vegans and people who follow a keto lifestyle

  • Highlights

    1. Ingredients include nano CBD, melatonin, magnesium, and L-theanine

    2. Cinnamon cacao flavor

    3. Buyers can save money with a monthly subscription



The Dream Powder drink mix from Beam is unlike most CBD supplements sold today. In addition to nano CBD, the formula contains melatonin, magnesium, L-theanine, and the mushroom-derived superfood known as reishi. The mix of ingredients is intended to induce feelings of relaxation and help you fall asleep and wake up feeling refreshed each morning. Our testers who sampled the drink all reported deeper sleep and elevated energy levels the next day.

The powdered supplement can be stirred into 6 to 8 ounces of hot water. A cinnamon cacao flavor effectively masks the other ingredients. For best results, Beam recommends preparing the beverage 20 to 30 minutes before bedtime.

The powder does not contain any added sugar and is free of dairy and gluten. It is also vegan-friendly and conducive to the keto diet.

Shoppers can make a one-time purchase on Beam’s website or receive a discount by signing up for a monthly subscription, which can be paused or canceled at any time. Beam offers free shipping for all U.S. customers.

  • Who it’s best for

    1. Hot sleepers

    2. Frequent travelers

    3. Daytime nappers and others who frequently sleep during the day

  • Highlights

    1. Long-fiber mulberry silk is luxuriously soft and smooth

    2. Fiber fill provides light compression to induce sleep

    3. Elastic band ensures a universal fit




Mulberry silk shell with polyester fiber fill

Many people sleep better with an eye mask, making this a great gift for anyone who’s been struggling to get the rest they need. Saatva’s Silk Eye Mask is one of our team’s favorite sleep accessories due to its luxurious craftsmanship. The shell is composed of long-fiber mulberry silk, a material prized for its natural smoothness and breathability, while plush fiber fill adds to the softness and creates some light compression around the eyes to induce sleepiness and relaxation. Saatva also offers a weighted eye mask for those who want more heft. 

This mask should also come in handy for people who travel frequently and need to sleep mid-flight. The band is elastic and does not feature any buckles or hook-and-loop closures, so it should fit comfortably for any sleeper. Silk is known for being gentle on the skin, so the mask won’t produce friction or cause any lines or wrinkles, and the fabric has soothing properties for people with acne, eczema, and other conditions that cause skin sensitivity. Hand washing is recommended, as laundering the mask in a machine can permanently damage the silk. Two colors are available.

The mask is reasonably priced, and Saatva offers free ground shipping for all orders. Each order includes a 45-night trial, during which your friend or loved one can test the Silk Eye Mask and see if it’s right for them. If they choose to keep it, Saatva’s warranty covers manufacturing defects for up to one year.

  • Who it’s best for

    1. People who sleep with a blanket throughout the year

    2. Eco-conscious individuals

    3. Those who eat or drink in bed

  • Highlights

    1. Stain-resistant fabric gets softer over time

    2. Each blanket is constructed from roughly 30 recycled plastic bottles

    3. Fully machine washable



Buffy is a brand known for comfortable blankets that are also sustainably made. Take the Buffy Puffer, a quilted throw blanket cushioned with PET fill derived from recycled plastic bottles. The fill is meant to mimic the plush feel of real down, but it’s free of animal products and won’t trigger allergy symptoms. The shell is also made from an eco-friendly blend of polyester and Tencel.

A quintessential all-season throw, the Puffer is cozy and lofty enough to insulate from the cold, but also lightweight and well suited to warm weather. You can wash and dry the blanket in any home machine, so it’s also easy to keep clean. The materials are designed to soften with each laundry cycle. Customers can choose from four vibrant colors.

Buffy’s lineup also includes comforters, duvet covers, sheets, and other bedding accessories made from natural materials like eucalyptus and hemp linen. Exceptional cooling is the common bond that connects the brand’s products. We’ve tested several Buffy items, including the Puffer, and all of them excel at breathability and temperature regulation.

Buffy backs each purchase with a 30-day trial period. The company places a hold on your credit card until seven days after the delivery date, so if a return is initiated within that time period your card won’t be charged.

  • Who it’s best for

    1. People who dislike conventional alarm clocks

    2. Those who enjoy reading in bed

    3. Anyone who needs help relaxing before they go to sleep

  • Highlights

    1. Light automatically brightens and dims to mimic the natural sunrise and sunset

    2. Color, tone and brightness can all be adjusted

    3. Companion app lets you control the light using smart devices



In recent years, many people who struggle with falling asleep and feeling refreshed in the morning have discovered the life-changing difference a wake-up light can make. The Loftie Lamp earns our recommendation due to its multipurpose-driven design. The lamp nicely mimics the natural patterns of sunset and sunrise to help you unwind before bed and wake up without the blare of a conventional alarm clock, but also serves as a handy reading light with adjustable color, tone, and brightness levels.

A sleek modern design sets the Loftie Lamp apart from other reading lamps on the market. The slim profile with a flat base means you can set the lamp on any surface, and the shade is available in three colors. Users can program the sunrise with a full spectrum of colors based on their personal preferences and the time of year. With the Loftie app, they can also make adjustments using their smartphone or tablet. A Wi-Fi connection is required for certain capabilities.

The sticker price is somewhat expensive, so keep this in mind as you shop for your loved ones, but shipping is free for all U.S. orders and each purchase includes a 60-day return period. Those who keep their Loftie Lamp also receive a one-year warranty covering manufacturing and technical defects.
