When the only thing on your schedule is staying in bed, the name of the game is self-pampering. So: Swaddle yourself in something cozy. Cue up your most-loved season of Love Island. Gather your exfoliating serums and hydrating hair masks. And double-check that your first-pick vibrator is at full charge.

  1. You’re going to spend a good chunk of your life in bed—whether it’s your choice hangout spot or just a space to sleep—so you deserve a mattress that’s nontoxic, sustainable, and ethically made. Avocado has been our gold-standard bed brand for years. You can count on the fact that the mattresses are made with certified-organic materials (and that they skip the stuff we’d rather not sleep on, like fiberglass, flame retardants, and polyurethane foam). Avocado’s newest mattress also happens to be the most affordable model so far.

    WRAP YOURSELF IN
    SOMETHING SOFT

    This is a coat made for going nowhere. Wearing it is like wrapping yourself in the fluffiest, puffiest comforter out there. We feel like our best, most relaxed selves when we’re in it.

    BREATHE IN GROUNDING SCENTS

    We love rolling this essential oil blend over our wrists, neck, and behind the ears to double down on grounding energy. It’s made from plants with spiritual roots, like tulsi, sage, angelica, palo santo, and frankincense. And it’s blended in the presence of black tourmaline, which in crystal lore represents protection from negative energy.

    TAP INTO YOUR INTUITION

    Normally you might pull a handful of cards, spread them out, and read them as a whole. But here, shuffle and draw just one at a time. There’s a guide book to tell you the deeper meaning behind cards like “wonderment” or “goddamn.” Bonus points if you have a journal to scribble in—these cards are a jumping-off point for self-reflection and goal-setting.

    GET DOWN WITH YOUR
    PRETTIEST, QUIETEST
    VIBRATOR

    Viva la Vulva is the ideal vibrator for a long day in bed. Because: It’s super quiet. It’s perfect for foreplay or a languid solo session. And when the job’s done, it’s pretty enough to leave out on your nightstand.

    GET INTIMATE WITH A LOVER

    If you happen to be hanging here with a partner, Best Self’s deck of relationship conversation-starters goes deep and brings on the flirt factor, too. We imagine the game ends when you’re too busy eye-gazing to pull another card.

    SMOOTH ON SERUM

    If there’s something magic in our nighttime beauty regimen, it’s our new GOOPGLOW Dark Spot Exfoliating Sleep Milk. Sweep this cushiony time-released serum over your skin before hitting the hay—it sinks in immediately and works overnight to target spots and uneven skin tone and texture.

    DIVE INTO DEEP EXFOLIATION

    Our Sunday-night exfoliation ritual comes in a shiny square packet. Step one: Tear it open. Step two: Sweep the glycolic acid–soaked pad over your face, neck, and décolletage. Step three: Wake up to brighter, glowier skin the next day. Note: Don’t use any other exfoliating skin care (like Sleep Milk) within 24 hours of the peel.

    INDULGE IN AN AT-HOME PEDI

    There’s something about a nightly foot rub that just makes the next day go better. Lavido’s foot cream is the last one you’ll ever need. It’s incredibly rich—almost indulgent—and packed with botanical oils that moisturize even the driest skin, yet it absorbs quickly (key). It also smells subtly herbal and floral.
