There’s really nothing more satisfying than getting a blissful, uninterrupted eight hours of sleep—especially these days, when there’s enough going on to make falling asleep at night anything but easy. A restful night’s sleep can help you feel empowered and get you ready to face the challenges of the day head-on. But to get there, you first have to create a bedroom oasis that lulls you into dreamland. To help, the Wirecutter Deals team has selected only the best discounts on Wirecutter-approved mattresses, bedding, and anything else you’ll need to get good rest. Here are the best deals we’ve found to help you sleep well.
A big, fast-working humidifier
October is here, and though it’s still pretty warm in several parts of the country, it’s only going to get colder and dryer as the days pass. If you typically suffer from dry sinuses or skin when the weather gets cold, it’s probably time to invest in a humidifier. The Honeywell HEV685W is a large, fast-working humidifier with two easy-to-install tanks that can hold double the amount of water of our other picks—up to 3 gallons. Though it’s not a quiet humidifier and may bother some folks if used in a bedroom, the HEV685W is still a great option for use in other rooms in the house. We rarely find deals on the Honeywell HEV685W, so this a good opportunity to save on a bigger humidifier that’ll keep you from waking up with cotton mouth.

An easy-to-read alarm clock
If you’ve been finding it difficult to fall asleep at night, it’s time to power down your phone and toss it in a drawer till morning. “But how will I wake up if I turn my phone off? It’s my alarm,” you cry, your fingers gripping your phone protectively. The answer is simple: Trade your phone for an old-school alarm clock, you addict. The DreamSky Compact Digital Alarm Clock does a lot for cheap. Not only is it a basic alarm clock that displays the time in a hard-to-miss way, but it’s also a USB charging station equipped with two ports. The DreamSky is also extremely easy to set up and intuitive to use, with clearly labeled buttons and controls. Now down to $17 when you clip the on-page coupon, the DreamSky will replace your phone alarm so competently that you’ll wonder why you ever woke up to the grating marimba jingle in the first place.

Listen to a bedtime story
For folks who have a hard time falling asleep to silence but don’t necessarily like the sound of a white noise machine, an audiobook narrated by a soothing voice might be the sweet spot. If this sounds appealing, you may want to invest in a subscription to Audible. Typically, the price of a one-year subscription is $150, but this deal for Prime members brings the price down to $100. Even more exciting, it gives you the 12 book credits up front, so you won’t have to wait a month to get your hands on a new story. Just be sure to set a reminder in your calendar to cancel the subscription at the end of the year, if this isn’t something you’d want to pay for at full price—otherwise the subscription will automatically renew for $150.

A cozy lap tray
Whether you’re the type to eat a whole breakfast spread in bed or you just need something to catch the crumbs from your midnight snack sesh, a lap tray like the LapGear Rossie is a good buy. Though we haven’t personally tested this tray, it’s reviewed highly by customers, and it’s made by the same manufacturer as our top lap desk (the LapGear Designer Lap Desk). The raised sides will help keep items—like a full mug of coffee or that bag of Takis—from unexpectedly sliding onto your bedspread, but the open front still allows you to comfortably access everything on the tray. This versatile tray can even be used as a lap desk, if you decide that your office for the day is your bed. For everything from a cozy breakfast to a more-relaxed day of work, the discounted LapGear Rossie can transform your bedroom into a private café or a better workspace.

No-sink memory foam
Side-sleepers who are on a tighter budget might want to consider picking up the Leesa Original Memory Foam Mattress now that it’s down to the lowest price we’ve seen since February. This mattress is no longer a formal pick, but our guide writers still speak fondly of the Leesa Original, which has the soft feel of foam but doesn’t mold to the body the way memory foam typically does. The Leesa Original offers excellent motion isolation, so light sleepers won’t be disrupted if their partner shifts around at night, and it comes with a durable mattress cover that’ll be less likely to thin out or loosen over time. The biggest concern with the Leesa Original is that it tends to be more expensive than foam mattresses of similar quality. But now that it’s been discounted, we think it’s a good time to pick up a high-quality contender for less.

A waterproof mattress pad
The Company Store 400-Thread-Count Waterproof Cotton Top Mattress Pad (Queen)
Deal price: $74 with code J20FRIENDS; street price: $99
Whether you’re in the throes of potty training your toddler or house training a rescue pup, or you just enjoy having the occasional glass of wine in bed, it’s a smart idea to invest in a good waterproof mattress protector. The Company Store’s 400-Thread-Count Waterproof Cotton Top Mattress Pad is soft and pillowy, and it doesn’t move or bunch during the night. Though it’s more expensive than our other mattress protector picks, this one also doubles as a comfortable mattress topper—something you’d have to buy separately if you were to choose one of our other mattress protector picks. This deal, which brings the price of the pad down to $74 when you use the code J20FRIENDS, is the first we’ve posted this year; it’s around through October 7.

A longer-than-average body pillow
If you’ve been on the hunt for a comfortable body pillow to cuddle with at night, consider your search over. The Company Store Down-Free Fill Body Pillow is our top pick for a reason: It’s soft and springy, and it bends easily to conform to multiple sleeping positions. Down to $56 with the code J20FRIENDS, this longer-than-average pillow is lighter than most other body pillows, so it’s easier to reposition in bed and works especially well for taller sleepers. If you’re considering picking up this body pillow, you’ll have to make a decision soon: This deal will be around only until October 7.
