Having a comfortable place to (literally) lay your head is crucial to a good night’s sleep. From pillows that are fluffy as a cloud to flat as a pancake, we all have our preferences. The American-made Sonno Pillows are customizable so you can make your pillow juuuuust right. The pillow arrives poofy as can be and you simply unzip and remove as much hypoallergenic microfiber as you see fit.

Many experts believe that the blue light emitted by our devices and from some light bulbs can cause sleeplessness. The Wellness Lighting feature from IIumi bulbs automatically adjusts your lighting to follow the daily color cycle of the sun, rather than the artificial light we are exposed to. On the fun side, these app-controlled bulbs allow you to change the color in your room to almost any color (like pink or green) and turn the light off right from your smart device. Your kids will love it!

Melatonin is known to be an effective sleep aid, but some find it causes drowsiness in the morning. This lemony-tasting spray delivers a gentle dose of melatonin to send you off to sleep peacefully, but feeling great in the a.m. My husband, who has a crazy trifecta of Restless Limb Syndrome, Sleep Apnea and intermittent Insomnia (and is very reluctant to believe that anything works), swears by this one.

If scent is more your thing, try this spray, which is a blend of lavender, vetivert and wild chamomile essential oils. It’s a spicey, yet soothing blend that smells great. In a trial of 200-plus people with sleep issues, over 90% slept better and felt more refreshed in the morning. I am convinced that it helps me fall asleep faster!
