In an effort to both serve our readers and help support The A.V. Club, we are going to post daily links to deals and interesting items that we find over on Amazon. If you use these links to click through and buy something—not just the thing you clicked—on Amazon, we will see a portion of that income. You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to, but if you do, know that we appreciate it.

HugOne sleep tracking system ($179.99)


HugOne uses tiny mattress sensors to help you sleep better. It syncs with Amazon’s Echo to track your sleep, wake you up gradually, and make sure you’re living with the healthiest in-home temperature, humidity, and air quality. You can also connect hugOne to any smart lightbulbs you have, which will then wake you up naturally with slowly increasing light. In other words, it’s like sleep’s version of Big Brother, but in a way that actually sounds refreshing.

Aluminum wall deer head light ($230.00)

If you’ve always wanted a deer head on your wall but just can’t tolerate those beady glass eyes staring down at you, Amazon’s got the perfect alternative. This 21st century version of taxidermy is both functional and lovely, providing a nice soft light source to any room via either a cord or a switch.
