When the only thing on your schedule is staying in bed, the name of the game is self-indulgence. So: wrap yourself in something cozy. Experience your most loved season of Love Island. Gather your exfoliating serums and moisturizing hair masks. And double check that your first choice vibrator is fully charged.

  1. You’re going to spend a good portion of your life in bed – whether it’s your chosen hangout spot or just a place to sleep – so you deserve a mattress that’s non-toxic, sustainable and ethically made. Avocado has been our gold standard bedding brand for years. You can count on the mattresses being made with certified organic materials (and skipping 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 to date.

    TAKE YOURSELF IN
    SOMETHING FINED

    This is a coat made to go nowhere. Wearing it is like wrapping yourself in the softest puffy comforter out there. We feel like our best, most relaxed selves when we’re in it.

    BREAK IN BASIC FRAGRANCES

    We love to roll this essential oil blend over our wrists, neck and behind the ears to double the grounding energy. It is made from plants with spiritual roots, such as tulsi, sage, angelica, palo santo and frankincense. And it is mixed in the presence of black tourmaline, which in crystals represents protection against negative energy.

    TAP ON YOUR INTUITION

    Normally you can draw a handful of cards, spread them out and read them as a whole. But here mix and draw only one at a time. There’s a guidebook that tells you the deeper meaning behind cards like “wonder” or “damn.” Bonus points if you have a journal to write in – these cards are a starting point for self-reflection and goal setting.

    COME DOWN WITH YOURS
    MOST BEAUTIFUL, QUIET
    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 lazy solo session. And when the job is done, it’s beautiful enough to stand on your nightstand.

    DIVE INTO DEEP EXPORATION

    Our Sunday night exfoliation ritual comes in a shiny square package. Step one: tear it up. Step Two: Sweep the glycolic acid-soaked pad over your face, neck and décolletage. Step Three: Wake up to brighter, glowing skin the next day. Note: Do not use other exfoliating skin care (such as sleeping milk) within 24 hours of the peel.

    Treat yourself to a PEDI at home

    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 will ever need. It’s incredibly rich—almost indulgent—and loaded with botanical oils that hydrate even the driest skin, yet absorbs quickly (key). It also smells subtly herbal and floral.
