Getting a good night's sleep is the one thing that can influence the rest of your day. Take it from me — I never sleep well, and am always cranky. But you? You're smarter (and probably nicer) than me. That's why you went looking for all the things on Amazon that can help you sleep better, rather than just tossing and turning for the third week in a row.

Truth be told, I hadn't gone hunting for sleep aids in a while before compiling this list — but the number of genius products you can find is astounding. You've likely heard of melatonin supplements that can help you fall asleep, but there are also weighted blankets, memory foam pillows infused with bamboo charcoal, and even Bluetooth sleep headphones that double as eye masks. And don't even get me started on the ultra-soft pillowcases made from natural mulberry silk, because I'm about two clicks away from getting one for myself.

Whether you're looking for ways to help remedy insomnia, or simply trying to figure out how to keep yourself asleep through the night, there are tons of genius sleep aids available on Amazon — so here are 34 of the best ones.


The Sleep Aid Tablets With Over 1,200 Positive Reviews

Not only does each tablet have 25 milligrams of doxylamine (a non-habit forming sleep aid), but these tablets are also safe for anyone aged 12 and older. One tablet is considered the recommended dosage, and reviewers absolutely love them — one even raved that "these are just as good as Unisom Sleep Tabs, at a fraction of the price."


An Essential Oil That Helps Relax Your Mind Before Bed

The Weighted Blanket That Can Help Alleviate Insomnia

Not all weighted blankets are created equal — this one features high-density stitching that ensures the glass bead fillings stay evenly distributed while you sleep.

A Sleep Mask That Puts Soothing Pressure On Your Face

Similar to the way a weighted blanket works, this sleep mask adds a comfortable amount of pressure to your face to help you relax. The velcro strap is adjustable so that you can customize how snugly it fits, plus it's available in two gorgeous colors: blue gray and sea grass.

There's also a timer so that it turns off after 30, 60, or 90 minutes.


A Memory Foam Topper Infused With Temperature-Regulating Gel

I'm an incredibly hot sleeper, which is why I always put a gel mattress topper like this one on my bed.

Get it in most sizes from twin XL to California king.
