Charleston Vintage Alarm Clock
Waking up early to the sound of an alarm will never be enjoyable, but a chic new clock might at least make it a bit more tolerable. With a vintage pocket watch design and glow-in-the-dark clock hand tips, Pottery Barn’s Charleston clock is a pleasure to look at day and night, even if it doesn’t have the most favorable function.
“Hibernating” Sleep Mask
Often times, a good night’s sleep can be achieved by shutting everything and everyone out. While a sleep mask does the job wonderfully, Wildfox’s “hibernating” mask has the added benefit of sending a subtle message that disturbances while sleeping are not appreciated.
Sleep Headband Headphones
It’s always best to unplug before bedtime, but in the event dozing off is just not going to happen without listening to an audiobook, TV show, or sleep soundtrack of choice, it might as well be done in comfort. SleepPhones headband headphones make it easier to fall asleep faster and without the pain inflicted by regular earbuds.
Nothing says bedtime like a hot cup of tea. Especially when tea is called, “Bedtime Tea.” With a combination of relaxing, sleep-promoting herbs like valerian and chamomile, this tea is the best go-to brew for tea lovers looking to sip their way to a better slumber.

Deep Sleep Heavenly Candle
