Your bed may already be the comfiest place in your home, but there are always ways to make it even better. And when it comes to clever things for the bedroom, there's a huge selection of cozy and brilliant items available on Amazon — and these serious upgrades are almost all $35 or less.

To make your bed more comfortable, there are cooling bamboo sheets, memory foam pillows that mold to your body, clips that keep your sheets in place even if you toss and turn, and an extra cozy heated blanket. Plus, there are some clever touches that make getting in or out of bed easier like under-the-bed motion-sensing lights that turn on when you get up and an alarm clock that can wake even the heaviest sleepers. If you like reading, watching TV, or even working in bed, you'll love a bedside storage caddy and a laptop desk.
