Sleep sanctuary > quarantine office.
by Jessica Toscano August 25, 2021
After spending all of quarantine in your bedroom, it’s no surprise if you look at your space a little differently. Especially if you’re part of the 72 percent of 1,000 individuals whose bed doubled as an office desk (maybe it still does?), per a survey by Tuck. While WFB may have led to some seriously cool transitions (like this dope Home Office Lap Desk), it’s time you dabbled in some non-work-related upgrades that feel luxurious and help you snooze.
Here are some of our faves, which include *gasp* customizable options!

1. Pluto Pillow, $95+
How many times have you purchased seemingly comfy pillows you haven’t actually slept on only to find out they don’t offer the support you need? With this customizable pillow—as in the only one like it—you’ll never again worry about sleep woes or inconvenient returns (you get 100 risk-free nights to test your custom build). Seriously. Just fill out their short questionnaire to determine which of their over 35 material variations can assist with shoulder aches, night sweats, and back pain. If, after 100 nights (or your first), you never again want to leave your bed, sorry not sorry.
2. Molecule Sateen 6PC Sheet Set, $119+
If ever you wondered what it’s like to sleep between clouds, this sheet set is it. Its silk-like touch and sweat-wicking properties (thanks to TENCEL materials aka rayon, the breathable fabric that also happens to be sustainable) means never tossing and turning during warmer climates. If wrinkled sheets are a pet peeve, and ironing just isn’t your thing, you’ll surely rest well knowing you’ll never have to worry come morning.
3. Slip Silk Sleep Mask, $50
This 100 percent pure mulberry silk mask is as luxurious as it sounds: sheen, smooth, and secure. Plus it doesn’t snag your skin or hair. Its certified non-toxic dyes mean finding the color that best suits you and feeling completely at ease rocking it, so you can sleep soundly in the AM or PM.
4. Aromatherapy Eye-Pillow, $42
Whether you suffer from puffy eyes, migraines, or anxiety, this weighted aromatherapy eye pillow engages acupressure points to soothe. Inside its pouch is a combination of lavender and chamomile flowers, both proven to ease migraine tension, and organic oat groats, which applies light pressure to help you relax. Simply lay over your eyes and feel yourself drift with each inhale.
5. OSEA Vagus Nerve Pillow Mist, $32
If you’re not one for sleeping with eye coverings, consider spritzing this chamomile, lavender, and lemon tea tree oil combo onto your pillowcase shortly before bedtime. P.S. Its formula is vegan and cruelty-free.
6. Kamu Dream Full-Spectrum CBD, $59.95
Sometimes you require a little assistance falling and staying asleep, and these full-spectrum CBD drops do the trick. Key ingredients lavandin and reishi mushroom reduce anxiety and promote relaxation to prepare you for sleep, while melatonin encourages an earlier-than-usual snooze time that promotes a night’s rest. Just be sure to check in with your primary physician before use, as melatonin can interfere with some meds.
7. Philips SmartSleep Sleep and Wake Up Light, $159.95
If you’re not a fan of mornings (we feel you), this LED sleep-wake lamp will awaken you with ease rather than annoyance. Choose from a series of brightness levels and alarms (which range from nature sounds to melodic melodies and even radio stations) that gradually increase in intensity as they nudge you awake. This lamp even doubles as a soft glow night light and phone charger. Score!
