Get those pillows and blankets ready, the best sleep of your life is less than a "sweet dream" away. Sleep Awareness Week, an annual campaign by the National Sleep Foundation, is taking place from March 10 to 16 to promote the prioritization of sleep in light of losing an hour for Daylight Savings. Getting good quality sleep helps us perform our best mentally, emotionally and physically in our day-to-day lives. Poor sleep (especially chronically) can cause drowsiness and impair concentration and alertness — not to mention cause a bad case of bedhead.

Everyone knows what it's like to be sleep-deprived, including our editors, which is why we've rounded up the top products we can't sleep without. Super soft sheets and a luxurious silk pillowcase can make your rest even more relaxing. And adding on products to promote beauty sleep like supplements and skincare solutions can bring your good night's sleep to the next level. Bottom line:
Don't sleep on our editors' top products; you'll be counting sheep in no time.

"I like the idea of a weighted sleep mask, and bought one a while back, but found the elastic strap that went around the head to be so uncomfortable while trying to sleep. The Nodpod Gentle Pressure Sleep Mask lays across the face to avoid the pesky elastic and is designed with side sleepers in mind. If you’re a stomach sleeper or want to use it while sitting upright, simply pull the corner through the slit on the other end to secure the mask in place. Bonus: You can even put the mask in the freezer!" — Morgan Faulkner, Editorial Assistant

"I never understood the hype around silk pillowcases until I was gifted a Blissy, and now I can never look back. Not only do I love the smooth texture on my skin and constant cool-side-of-the-pillow sensation all night long, but Blissy has saved my bedhead forever. As someone with curly hair who constantly deals with tangles, I now wake up frizz-free and as stylish as someone can be in the morning. It feels like sleeping in luxury!" — Julia Morlino, Editorial Assistant

"My biggest sleep struggle is winding down each night. In addition to putting my phone down earlier, I’m eager to purchase a new alarm clock to make my bedroom even more serene. This clock from Hatch has a variety of sleep sounds, a dimmable setting for keeping my room dark at night and a sunrise setting for a gentler wakeup routine. Though it’s on the pricier side, if it can help me get a more restful sleep, the investment will be priceless." — T.K. Brady, Senior Editor

"I realize this is such a strange one, but this product has saved me so many freezing nights. I have chronic ice cube feet (even in the summer) and will lie awake all night freezing no matter how many blankets I add on. But what's worse is the rest of my body might not even be cold, so all those blankets are kind of a pain. This foot warmer makes it so easy to warm my popsicle feet without overheating the rest of me. I take it everywhere and just place it at the bottom of the bed like another blanket that's exclusively for my feet. Think of it like a 21st-century bed warmer. It's also a great solution for a shared bed so you can stay warm without affecting a hot-natured partner." — Keri Sanders, Editor

"I tested ettitude’s Signature Sateen Sheet Set for our Best Bamboo Sheets roundup and absolutely fell in love. The sheets are lightweight, breathable and cool to the touch — ideal for hot sleepers like myself. During Sleep Week, I plan on purchasing another set in the “Butter” shade (trend alert!), which is perfect for spring and summer." — Morgan Faulkner, Editorial Assistant

"This adjustable pillow is hands-down my favorite pillow I’ve tried. The fill can be adjusted depending on your desired thickness and comes with extra fill in the box. It took me a few nights to find my perfect fill amount, but once I did, I’ve been sleeping soundly ever since. Since it’s customizable, it’s a pillow that you can buy for anyone in your family or overnight guests and feel confident they’ll be able to rest easy. Plus, it doesn’t fall flat like other pillows with a feather or feather-alternative fill." — Laura James, Editor

"I'm fairly obsessed with Schoolhouse bedding. I have the Blooming Field Duvet Cover in green for our bed, the Stillwater Floral Quilt in auburn for our guest bed and Gingham Sheet Sets in green for both. I love the patterns that are modern and classic at the same time. The quilt is soft but sturdy, and the 100% percale sheets and duvet cover are so silky smooth, even after months of washing. I'm tempted to stock up on a few more sets to rotate by season!" — Kelly Smith Trimble, Senior Editorial Director

"When I was pregnant with my son, I added this sound machine to my registry thinking it would be the perfect all-in-one nursery gadget: a sound machine, time-to-rise alarm, clock and a nightlight. However, when my son transitioned into his nursery, the sound machine stayed in my room. This machine quickly became something I couldn't sleep (as soundly) without. From the in-app features like sound variety (hello, brown noise) and auto-shutoff to the sleek aesthetic and touch power on and off, I would recommend this for anyone looking to upgrade their sleep sounds. It's worth every penny." — Ellie Sanders, Assistant Newsletter Editor

"Every time I have overnight guests, they always say the beds in my house are the most comfortable they’ve ever slept on. And it’s all because of this 3-inch memory foam mattress topper. Not only do I have it on every bed in my house, but I also put them on the beds in our camper too!" Chelsea Faulkner, Social Media Editor

"I am so easily influenced to purchase everything I see on TikTok, and these gummies are next in line. I just recently got into melatonin to help me sleep at night, but I can't say it has been consistent 100% of the time. Kourtney Kardashian's Lemme vitamin and botanical supplements are apparently the real deal — specifically these Sleep Tight ones. They are a combination of melatonin, magnesium, L-theanine, lavender and chamomile, which all together give you a blissful night's sleep and help you feel refreshed in the morning. And they supposedly taste good, which is always a plus." — Julia Morlino, Editorial Assistant

"I have trouble falling asleep at night and truly unplugging (mom of two toddlers here). I have sound machines, weighted blankets and dabble with melatonin. My goal is to create the quiet and serene environment I experience when I stay at a hotel. Hotels create a luxurious sleep experience with some of the softest sheets and fluffiest pillows that I want to bottle up and take home. I tried Buffy’s Breeze Sheet Set made from eucalyptus and found they are the silkiest and softest sheets I’ve ever slept on (hello better sleep). They are perfect for hot sleepers, but don’t feel cool to the touch. I plan on buying a second set of these sheets in the blue stripe." — Jennifer Cicatelli, Senior Manager, Commerce Analytics

"I’m a big fan of beauty rest, meaning I love any skincare solution that works while I snooze. These Sio Beauty silicone patches are designed to tackle fine lines and wrinkles literally overnight. I’m investing in a pack to tackle some lines I’ve noticed on my forehead and eyes. Each patch can be used up to 10 times and even top derms are fans." — T.K. Brady, Senior Editor

"Although I’ve always been able to fall asleep even if the bedroom isn’t completely dark, I notice that I get much deeper sleep when I wear a sleep mask to block out as much light as possible. Wearing something on your face can sometimes feel restrictive, but this luxe silk option from Baloo Living is one of the most comfortable sleep masks I’ve tried. It’s made from mulberry silk and filled with lead-free glass beads and either amethyst or rose quartz crystals. It also features an adjustable strap for a comfortable, secure fit. I love that it comes with a carrying case that prevents dust from collecting and is also great for travel." — Laura James, Editor

“My 3-year-old just started sleeping in a big-kid bed, which we’re very happy about, but he’s been waking up at 5am each day, which we are much less excited about. We plan to get him an okay-to-wake clock — if he wakes up before the green light comes on, he’ll know to go back to sleep, or stay in bed until it does come on. The nice thing about this one (besides the cute dog design), is that you can set two different times, so we can set one timer for weekdays and one for weekends.” — Michelle Buffardi, VP, Multiplatform Digital Content

"I’m a BIG silk pillowcase girlie. I bought this Harry Potter-themed set from Kitsch and have been amazed at how smooth and silky my hair is when I wake up in the morning. I went on a work trip this week and forgot to take one with me, so I had to use the regular hotel pillows. Not only did I not sleep as well, but I woke up with knots in my hair. I’m a silk pillowcase convert!" Chelsea Faulkner, Social Media Editor

"I swear by Lush’s Sleepy Body Lotion and use it nightly, but the costs can add up quickly when purchasing it often. I’ve heard Dr. Teal’s Melatonin Sleep Lotion is a great, budget-friendly alternative with a comparable soothing lavender scent that’s perfect for bedtime. The addition of melatonin and chamomile essential oils with the lavender encourages relaxation, while shea and cocoa butters moisturize the skin while you sleep." — Morgan Faulkner, Editorial Assistant
