You’ll see the 50 percent discount at checkout. These bed sheets are made of a combination of cotton and rayon, a fiber derived from bamboo. Unlike microfiber, satin, and flannel, cotton and cotton blends keep you from getting as clammy under the sheets. These deep-pocket sheets will fit on mattresses as thick as 17 inches, which should be enough for even the thickest foam and hybrid-foam mattresses on the market. You can choose the size you want in the drop-down menu.
Rather than a lot of buttons, this sunrise alarm relies on gestures (and a smartphone app) to function. Set it at night to gradually dim like an artificial sunset and to gradually brighten at a set time in the morning, just like a sunrise. It mimics natural rhythms so that falling asleep is more calming and waking up is less jarring. Read more about it here. You can also buy just one for $116 ($13 off).
I’ve used this comforter for a few years now, and even on the coldest winter nights, it’s warm enough to make me feel like a human toaster strudel.

The synthetic down-alternative LaCrosse LoftAIRE comforter is also on sale with coupon code FRESH22 at checkout.

You’ll see the discount at checkout. If you’ve ever felt a certain comfort in a heavy blanket resting over you, then know you’re not just imagining things. Touch releases oxytocin in your brain, which calms and soothes you. Weighted blankets take advantage of that by being noticeably heavier than a normal blanket, mimicking a hug. Check our Best Weighted Blankets guide for more.
The Blanket Shirt is all about sustainability. The fabric is 100 percent organic cotton, and even the buttons are made from corozo nuts, for those who want to avoid plastics for ethical or sustainability reasons.

When the original Skyliner debuted in 1936, it was the first patented jacket in the US that used goose down as an insulation material. The re-released version packs 145 grams of 650-fill goose down within a fabric shell comprised of 56 percent cotton and 44 percent nylon. Stock is limited for the tall version, so try different colors or switch to the regular size.
These matching full-set pajamas come in a variety of textures, such as flannel and waffle knit. The regular fit gives you extra room without feeling restrictive, and the cotton fabric keeps you from feeling stuffy, which can happen more easily with synthetic fabrics.
