Want a great night’s rest, but don’t want to lose sleep over the price? Amazon has plenty of affordable sleep products right now to help you on your way to a restful night’s sleep. If you’re wondering why sleep is important, think about how crumby you feel when you don’t sleep well.
But it doesn’t take much to help you get back on track with your slumber. Yes you could splash out on the best mattress online for your dominant sleep position, but if you have a much smaller budget right now, or you're just looking to stock up on some smaller sleep goodies, there are some very affordable treats around.
From a dreamy sleep mask to an out-of-this world luxury sleep spray, here are our top five picks to help you well on your way to some seriously sweet slumber, and they all cost less than $50 (some far, far less).
1. MZOO Sleep Mask, $13.49
MZOO’s memory foam sleep mask is an Amazon bestseller and offers a super-comfy no-pressure eye pad that blocks out light while still giving your eyes plenty of room to blink. The MZOO Sleep Mask also comes with an adjustable strap to fit most heads and won’t snag up in your hair either - such a problem if you’re dealing with curls.
Super-light and easy to wash, this stunning sleep mask is extra convenient for travel (when we’re finally allowed). Plus, the MZOO Sleep Mask also comes with a handy pouch and free earplugs too, helping you to shut out any external noise as you snooze.
You can buy the sleep mask in four different colors, including black, pink and purple, and it comes in a gift box that makes it ideal to give as a present to a friend who loves getting their slumber on.
2. This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, $29
Treat yourself to a seriously luxurious sleep experience with This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray. Simply spritz the 99% natural spray on your pillow and let it work its magic as the blend of lavender, chamomile and vetivert help you gently drift off to sleep.
We’ve been using this sleep spray for years and find it to be highly relaxing, so we use it as part of our pre-bedtime wind-down routine, an important part of sleep hygiene. We’d recommend spritzing it on your bedding a few minutes before you lie down, as it can cause a slight amount of wet residue to begin with.
The This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray has been tested on hundreds of people, 89% of whom report falling asleep faster. We can’t go to sleep without it now, perhaps because when our brain recognizes the smell, it knows its time to sleep. The spray also has stress-relieving properties, and helps you wake up feeling more refreshed too.
3. Mack’s Pillow Soft Silicone Putty Ear Plugs, $6.99
Ear plugs are the simplest solution if you want to block out unwanted sounds as you sleep, whether that’s noisy neighbors or a snoring sleep partner. And this bestselling option from Mack’s will provide exactly what you need, with its comfy moldable silicone shape that’s non-allergenic too.
When worn, these earplugs are super-comfy and can reduce noise by up to 22dB. Mack’s Pillow Soft Silicone Putty Ear Plugs are also ideal for reducing noise for when you’re traveling or at a loud concert, and they can even be worn while swimming too.
These ear plugs currently have over 22,000 user reviews on Amazon, and are highly recommended for sleep because they’re so comfy to wear and don’t easily fall out throughout the night. That’s because you can squeeze them between your fingers to get more of a custom shape for your ears.
4. Beckham Collection Bed Pillows (Two Pack), $39.99
This bestselling luxury bed pillow might come with a ‘posh’ name, but its price is anything but. For less than fifty bucks you get twice the cosiness, as well as a pillow that’s chemical-free, non-allergenic and cooling, with a super-plush gel-filled fiber that’s a dream to rest on. We gushed about it in our Beckham Collection Gel Pillow review.
Fully washable in the machine and great at keeping their shape, the Beckham Collection Bed Pillows are a favorite among many types of sleepers, whether you snooze on your front, side or your back. That’s because they are designed with a ‘no-shift construction’, so they’ll hold their shape well.
They have over 93,000 user reviews and counting on Amazon, with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Lots of existing customers liken them to hotel pillows, so that should give you an idea of how dreamy they are to lounge upon.
5. LetsFit White Noise Machine, from $19.99
Playing white noise is an effective way to gently drift off, especially if you have trouble sleeping. This affordable machine from LetsFit is suitable for all ages and includes natural sounds, as well as fan sounds and lullabies. This one also comes with a night light and timer, making it an essential gadget for your bedside table.
While we haven’t yet reviewed it for our best sound machines guide, we’re impressed with the user reviews - nearly 30,000 of them, with an average rating of 4.7 out of 5. The LetsFit White Noise Machine is available in four finishes, including Wood Grain. The fancy finishes cost a few dollars extra at $23.99.
The machine is dinky too, so it’ll sit neatly on your bedside table until you need to use it. And with easy-touch buttons on the front, doing so should be a breeze. You can even set a time to range from 15 to 120 minutes of use per session, making it worth considering if you take a while to drop off.
