For the wellness junkies

  1. Lion’s Mane Organic Mushroom Powder from Nature’s Rise ($28.95): The medicinal properties of mushrooms are popping up everywhere, and lion’s mane mushrooms are one of the best of the best. Lion’s mane is a medicinal mushroom primarily known for its ability to boost memory and mental strength as well as help combat and delay degenerative brain diseases. Lion’s mane mushroom powder contains bio-active compounds that help improve brain function to aid in regulating circadian rhythm and enhancing REM sleep.
  2. Dryft Sleep Mouth Tape from Dryft Sleep ($24): Since there’s no way to actually tell if we snore or mouth breathe at night (unless you record yourself), using a mouth tape to promote nasal breathing is definitely worth a try! Nasal breathing (vs. mouth breathing, which 80% of people do), aids in deeper sleep, improves oral health (mouth breathing is the #1 cause of cavities!), reduces snoring, reduces stress, improves skin health due to increased oxygenation of the blood, and so much more. If you’re in the market for a great mouth tape, try Dryft Sleep’s lip-shaped mouth tape designed to improve quality of rest and sleep efficiency. Bonus: it’s female-founded!
  3. Cloud Essential Oil Diffuser from Catnap Sleep ($68.99): One of the best ways to help transition yourself into sleep mode is by tapping into your sense of smell. Consistently using calming essential oils (like lavender, chamomile, and peppermint) while you get ready for bed will have a Pavlov-like effect and condition your body to get ready to sleep upon smelling your essential oils. This cute cloud shaped diffuser from Catnap Sleep is a must-have because of its chic cloud shape and it’s perfectly compact size.
  4. Beauty Sleep Ritual Set from Strobe Silk ($145): If you’re looking for a 100% mulberry silk pillowcase, eye mask or hair scrunchie, look no further than Strobe Silk’s Beauty Sleep Ritual Set. The quality and feel of the premium silk is unmatched and will help you wake up with smooth hair and clear skin every morning — even if you didn’t have the best night of sleep. With multiple color choices, this set would make an ideal gift for Valentine’s Day and birthdays.
  5. De-Stress Ashwagandha Gummies from Lemme Chill ($27.00): Think whatever you want about the Kardashians, but these de-stress gummies from Kourtney’s new wellness brand Lemme Chill are the real deal! With a clinically-studied dose of ashwagandha and a botanical blend in each serving, these gummies keep you cool, calm and connected to your higher self and melts away your stress before bed. They’re also vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, gelatin-free, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial sweeteners or synthetic colors, and made in the USA.

For the tech obsessed

  1. Oura Ring Gen3 ($349+): The Oura Ring may be small, but it is mighty. I just received mine, and it’s definitely one of the most stylish wearables on the market. It’s jam-packed with features, accuracy, and innovation that’s the best-of-the-best in sleep and overall health tracking. Each day it gives you three scores based on the data it collects that tell you how your body feels and what your body needs, every second of every day. You’ll know when you need more sleep, when you might be getting sick, when it’s time to push yourself — and more. How cool is that?
  2. Bladeless Misting Fan from Catnap Sleep ($53.99): This bladeless misting fan makes the perfect addition to your nightstand for those warmer nights. The compact size make it just right for a nightstand, and the bladeless design is sleek and modern. It even had a small humidifier tank for a nice “misting” function. Add a drop of your favorite essential oil aroma and enjoy!
  3. Hatch Restore ($129.99): A personal favorite of mine, the Hatch Restore makes keeping a morning and nighttime routine much more enjoyable. With customizable light and sound settings, you can program your Restore with an energizing sunrise and nature sounds in the morning to wake you up, play mid-afternoon music to remind WFHers to take a little mental health break, and gently lower its light at night to ease you to sleep.
  4. Bose Sleepbuds II ($249): Designed for sleep, Sleepbuds may look like tiny headphones, but they don’t stream music or podcasts, instead they deliver relaxing and noise-masking sounds to help you fall asleep and stay asleep all night. Don’t worry about any discomfort — it comes with 3 sizes and its proprietary ear tips are made of soft silicone for a comfortable fit all night, even if you toss and turn or sleep on your side.
  5. Sleep Tracking Mat from Withings Sleep ($129): If you don’t want to commit to a wearable sleep tracker, Withings Sleep Tracking Mat delivers key sleep quality insights that rival wearables, like sleep cycles analysis (deep, light and REM), heart rate tracking and snore detection. It syncs to an app that delivers you realtime insights and even Also features integrations for scenarios such as dimming lights when you go to bed, or turning up your thermostat when you get up.
