This Magic Lightbulb Will Lull You To Sleep

An antidote to the scourge of blue light-emitting screens and energy-efficient bulbs surrounding us, which have been proven to cause sleeplessness, the Drift Light by Saffron not only provides a warmer glow, but slowly dims on command to promote relaxation and increase melatonin. Result: it'll send you off to dreamland quicker and more naturally than NyQuil.

There's no need to go out and buy a special gizmo or lamp; it screws into any traditional socket. And the trick to activating its three settings is as simple as flipping the on/off switch in multiple successions: a normal on or off will give you standard function, a double flip and it will fade to dark over a 37 minute period (the average duration of a sunset), and a triple-flip — for the fraidy cats — will dim it to dusk or "moonlight" over the course of the same amount of time.
