How can we not love products designed to help children fall to sleep?

Sometimes all a reluctant sleeper needs is a warm little glow so the night doesn’t seem quite so dark. But these days a shopper has a few decisions to make, including sensors, type of bulb and even programmable features.

These top 10 best night lights are those that promise to make bed time easier for kids and adults alike.

10. Light Dimmers


Light dimmers can turn dining room or hallway accent lights into the best night lights. They save power because lights don’t shine at full capacity, but they keep the house from feeling like a dark cave.

9. Candles


Regardless of our latest and greatest technologies, many of us still have to deal with power outages on occasion. In addition to keeping a first aid kit, flashlight and other supplies, keep a few candles beside the bed. Candles were the very first night lights, and they’re still handy to have – just remember to blow them out before falling asleep.

8. Outdoor Wall Lights

Hello, night owls. Some nights are just too gorgeous to spend indoors, especially when you’re lucky enough to have a patio and some comfy outdoor chairs to curl up in. This style of outdoor wall lights mount near the back door so you and yours can easily find your way back. The amber glass offers a warm light, and the classic metal frame adds to your yards overall style during the day.

7. Sports Night Lights

They may be tough guys on the basketball court or learning to swing a bat, but the dark still turns them into sleepy klutzes. Plug-in night lights with sports themes feature a baseball, basketball or football and work with the simple turn of a switch. Plus, they’re fun and blend with other toys in a bedroom.

6. Landscaping Lights

No more lighting the way from the car to your front door with a cell phone. Landscaping lights make it easier for guests to navigate the front walkway and add an inviting look to your home. Similar to interior night lights, LED wireless battery operated lights automatically turn off during the day. A motion sensor prevents them from shining unnecessarily so the batteries last longer.

5. Portable Lantern

One of the most wonderful things about camping is getting away from the bright lights of the city. But when it comes time to find the bathroom in the middle of the night, that can also be one of the worst things. But you can safely lavigate the darkest woods with a portable lantern. The LED light and battery mean there’s no risky flame, and no need to recharge during your camping trip.

4. Diamond LED Night Light

The diamond LED night light has a clear shade that takes its name from the way it casts light in all directions. Built with a dusk-to-dawn photocell, it automatically turns on at night and stays on until morning. The best part is that it uses 90% less energy than the average incandescent night light, which reduces the cost of using it every day of the year to pennies.

3. Sleep/Wake Therapy Lights

Children aren’t the only ones who have trouble falling to sleep and/or waking up. Unfortunately, all it takes is repeated tossing and turning to make you into the resident grump. Verilux Dawn and Dusk lights were created to naturally restore your Circadian rhythm, which means regular rest and rejuvenation. These natural light simulators gradually dim the dark and brighten in the morning so you awaken more naturally.

2. Moon in my Room® Nightlight

Bring the soft and comforting light of the moon into the bedroom with a “Moon in my Room®” light from Met Kids. The wall-mount lamp shows the hills and valleys of the moon, and includes a CD that teaches kids (or grownups!) about the phases of the moon. The nightlight lets users scroll through the phases of the moon, or set it to match the sky above.

1. Tiny Lamps

Turn a dark room into a light-filled wonderland with a tiny lamp from The Lamp Store. The compact shape means it fits easily on a dresser or bedside table during the day. But when it’s turned on at night, the wonder begins. This is a perfect nightlight for little ones who are scared of the dark, or imagine monsters in the dark corners of the ceiling. It’s hard to be scared when your room glows with a dim, but comforting light!
