If you were born after 2005 skip this first paragraph. Remember back in the day when you would go to Blockbuster and they had a shelf with all the movies their staff recommends? I used to always going there first before scrolling through walls of new releases because who would know better about movies than the cool teens who got to work there?! Ok, maybe they weren’t always the “coolest” teens but I definitely trusted their opinion. 

Getting insider information on the best products is one of my favorite things. I hate wasting my time and money on things I shouldn’t have bothered with. Well, let me give you the inside scoop on what our staff LOVES to buy from Pillows.com. 


pillowtex bamboo mattress topperPillowtex Bamboo Mattress Topper! We love this topper because it not only makes your bed feel extra plush and comfortable, it also adds an extra layer of protection for your mattress! Expert tip, skip the boring mattress protectors that shift around and make noise, get a mattress topper that will add some comfort and protection to your mattress.


Pillowtex Dream in Color Comforter! No joke, we all have this one! It feels like a giant marshmallow blanket! It is perfect for the colder months. I like to put it inside my PIllowtex Duvet Cover to give it that classic luxury bed look.


Technogel Deluxe Thick PillowTechnogel Deluxe Thick Cooling Gel Pillow. Several employees have this wonderful pillow at home. If you are a hot sleeper and need help keeping cool at night, this is the pillow for you! It is topped with thin cooling gel packs that feel amazing. No more flipping your pillow over at night, this pillow keeps you cool all night long!


Malouf Bamboo Sheet Set

Malouf Bamboo Sheet Set! Again, so many of us have this sheet set! It feels silky soft and keeps you cool all night long. It is naturally antimicrobial and odor resistant. I personally have the blue, white, and ash colors. We tell all our friends and family about these sheets! Don’t walk, RUN in picking up a set. We sell out all the time!


Ok, this last one will be all about hotel pillows. Here are a few we LOVE!


  • Down Dreams Classic Firm. Featured in many hotels like Hampton, Hilton, Marriott and more. The Classic Firm is a medium/firm down and feather pillow perfect for side and back sleepers.Down Dreams Classic Firm


  • Dream Surrender pillow our favorite medium support polyester hotel pillow. This pillow is featured in many hotels like Hampton, Hilton, Marriott hotels and more! It is the perfect medium height and medium support that is great for all sleep positions. Dream Surrender Hotel Pillow


  • Holiday Inn Touch of Down is a wonderfully soft down and feather pillow. If you like to have a pillow that is so soft you can really scrunch it up to contour the neck, then this is the pillow for you. It is also perfect for stomach sleepers because it is a low loft pillow. Holiday Day Inn Touch of Down


  • Carpenter Beyond Down is a customer and staff favorite. It is a medium/firm support polyester pillow that has been around for a long time. It has a double gusset which helps the pillow to support the head and allows the pillow to not fall flat. This pillow is found in a lot of Disney hotels in Florida.
