There's nothing worse than waking up as tired as you were when you went to bed. Drowning out the ambient noise around you - street sounds, restless neighbors, a snoring spouse - is one effective way to lull yourself into a deeper, more restorative sleep. In fact, legions of fans swear by white noise machines to keep their sleep quality consistent.
And it just so happens that Amazon is offering up a slew of its most popular white noise machines by top brands like Marpac and Adaptive Sound Technologies for up to 35 percent off today only. Yep, today is the first day of Amazon's 12 Days of Deals, and this is the one deal you don't want to sleep on.
Bear in mind, when I say these white noise machines are popular, I'm understating it a bit. The Marpac machines have more than 10,000 five-star reviews each, and Adaptive Sound Technologies' bestsellers have more than 5,000. But what's so incredible about a white noise machine anyway?
White noise machines use a fan-based mechanism to deliver a blanket of soothing sound that drowns out background noise. But not all white noise is created equal, so the best brands are the ones that perfect the frequency to cocoon-like levels of sleep-friendliness.
Below are our top picks from Amazon's outrageous 35 percent off sale on white noise machines by the best brands in the business. With holiday-season stress at an all-time high, give yourself the gift of quality shut-eye.

"I never cared for "white noise" machines that wasn't true white noise; ocean waves and rainfall isn't as soothing when you have upstairs neighbors with lead for feet," wrote one sound machine convert. "You really need a good, loud, pure white noise that masks all frequencies and that your brain can easily ignore, so it seems as if there's no noise at all. This thing was absolutely perfect for me, as it only had white noise and fan sounds (and a variety of 'em!) that can get loud enough to mask anything. I mean ANYTHING."
