Raise your hand if you have the best intentions to go to bed at 10:30 p.m. (You even write it down in your planner! You set reminders in your Google Cal and alarms on your phone! You have an accountability buddy remind you!) And yet, when the clock strikes that time, you silence the notifications and ignore your planner entry and instead opt to scroll through TikTok until 1 a.m. It's a tale as old as time (well, maybe a tale as old as a few years ago, since TitTok itself isn't so old).
Regardless of what, specifically keeps you up at night, Well+Good editors have consulted with sleep doctors to get a better understanding of how to improve overall sleep health, and we've learned a lot. While there are many ways to work on your snooze game, one of the expert-approved key tips is to create a pre-bedtime routine. (That said, if you're dealing with a clinical sleep-related disorder, it's probably best to talk to your health-care provider to develop a personalized treatment plan.) This can mean anything that comforts you and pulls you into a calm headspace: Running a bath, surrounding yourself with the snuggliest of blankets, running a candle—whatever you need to wind down and signal to your body that it's time to chill the eff out.
If you're still working on perfecting your own pre-bedtime routine and are in the market for some sleep-promoting products, you're in luck: Nordstrom's Winter Sale is here, and the retailer has a plethora of bedtime goods that are deeply discounted. Your own personal sleep haven is a few clicks and a credit card away. And while you're at it, you can check out the rest of the Nordstrom Winter Sale, which ends February 27. Happy shopping, and happy sleeping!
The best sleeping essentials from Nordstrom's Winter Sale

The blanket, the myth, the legend. Everything Barefoot Dreams creates is softer than whipped cream, so it’s a no-brainer why everyone loves this blanket (and everything else the Barefoot Dreams brand has to offer, TBH). Best of all? It’s machine-wash-friendly, so you don’t have to deal with the fuss of dry-cleaning. Cuddle up with this in bed while you read, and you’ll feel the sleepies creep up on you in no time.
Originally $89, now $62
Silk pillowcases are a wonder for your hair and skin (they’re believed to fight frizz and prevent wrinkles and fine lines), and they’re also just royally soft and decadent. The pillowcase material is made of pure silk (Slipsilk, specifically, which is a special long-fiber mulberry silk that’s extra supple and holds up over time) and comes with a delicates laundry bag so you won’t forget to wash this using the delicate wash cycle (that’s right, you can machine-wash it).
Originally $139, now $125 (for standard size)
If you’ve never experienced the bliss that is the Casper pillow, now is the time to start—especially if you’re on the struggle sleep bus. The Casper Down Pillow features a five-chamber structure, which means it offers comfort and support while still being breathable. Constructed with a cotton outer shell, polyester inner panel, and a combination of white duck down and feather outer chamber, this pillow is also ethically sourced (it’s certified to the Responsible Down Standard by Control Union).
Originally $32, now $25
If I got reincarnated as a candle, this would be the one. Set the mood with Introvert by Cancelled Plans, a candle that smells like a fruity-floral blend of roses, pomegranate, cassis nectar and subtle earthy notes of cedarwood, amber, palo santo, and musk. It’s not too sweet, and not too “trendy boutique.” Burn it while you settle down for the night, and let yourself chill out for its 55 hours of burn time.
Originally $229, now $160
Run hot at night? If so, and if you also live somewhere warm year-round and want to avoid the electric bill leaving your bank account sadder than it needs to be, you’ll need a smart solution. Enter Evapolar EvaSMART Air Cooler, an energy-saving air cooler that’s perfect for small spaces. Place it by your bed and feel cool relief all night long as you snuggle under your Barefoot Dreams blanket.
Originally $148, now $104 (for a queen size)
Nothing is better than swaddling yourself in the comfort of some toasty flannel sheets. Great for cold nights, these UGG flannel sheets are made of 100 percent soft-as-a-cloud cotton. The set features a flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two pillowcases.
Originally $119, now $89
It’s the essential oil diffuser you probably see in all of your favorite interior designers’ social feeds. Sleek and modern, Vitruvi’s porcelain diffuser is compact and looks pretty on your nightstand, delivering a gentle flow of steam that smells like your go-to oil blends. It features a safety-off switch, so you can leave it on at night without worrying. Plus, it offers a run time up to seven hours.
Originally $26, now $20
You don’t have to use Vitruvi’s essential oils with your new Vitruvi diffuser, but I do love the company’s blends. Especially Dusk, which is a calming mix of ho wood, frankincense, eucalyptus, and lavender. This basically smells like a spa and, according to the brand, is “inspired by moonlight walks on desert paths.”
Originally $1,295, now $1,166 (for a queen)
While there’s now a sea of DTC (direct-to-consumer) bed-in-a-box mattresses on the market, Casper’s remains tried-and-true (Casper made it on our official list of top bed-in-a-box mattress brands). Even though Presidents’ Day mattress sales have come and gone, you can still score this one for 10 percent off. Designed with Casper’s proprietary Zoned Support systems, this mattress helps support your hips, waist, and back, and improves spinal alignment while you get your zzz’s. And good news for hot sleepers: The open cell foams are ultra breathable, so you can stay cool and sweat-free all night long.
Originally $125, now $60 (Small)
Nobody puts Baby in the corner! And by Baby, we mean your pupper, and by in the corner, we mean on the floor. Your furry pal deserves the best rest, too, so we’re including this dog bed that features an orthopedic foam mattress insert (especially great for older pups with delicate joints, as well as puppies who are still growing and need all the support their limbs can get), a cover you can easily take off, wash, and slip right back on, and a portable handle that makes transportation easy-peasy. It’s available in sizes small to extra-large.
