20 Labor Day Deals to Make Your Home an Oasis of Serenity

Early during the pandemic, I wrote a guide on staying sane and relaxed during quarantine. We're now several months farther in, and there's still no end in sight. It doesn't help that it's Labor Day weekend, and we can't partake in the usual cookouts, beach trips, and quality time with friends and family this year.

Redecorating or stocking up on sleep essentials won’t make things outside better, but it might help make you feel more comfortable and relaxed in your home. I was already a homebody before quarantine, so I like to think of myself as a pro at turning my living quarters into a cozy oasis to hide from the world. Thankfully, there are some great deals on home and wellness products right now, and we've collected our favorites to help get you started building your own safe space.

Once your home is your own personal paradise, check out our Ultimate Quarantine Self-Care Guide for more ways to decompress. For more discounted goodies, check out our roundup of Labor Day mattress and camping deals.

Finally, we may be biased, but through Labor Day, you can get one full year of WIRED for $5 ($25 off). Subscriptions help support the work we do every day. Have a good weekend!

Updated September 6, 2020: We've checked the prices and added two deals for the Brooklinen and Pottery Barn robes.

Deals to Set the Mood

Candles, bulbs, sound machines, and plants can all set the mood of a room and fill it with pleasant scents.

  • Yankee Candles Up to 50 Percent Off: Yankee Candles are pricey, but they're popular for a reason. The large size will give you a ton of burn time (the company claims 110 hours), and the scents are superb. Instead of the barely-there scents of other candles, these will fill your rooms with the aroma of whatever scene you want to create—maybe a campfire, a fall night, or a Christmas village.

  • Michael's Fall and Halloween Decor Up to 40 Percent Off: Michael's is not just the place to go for paints and yarn, it's also a great place to shop if you want to fill your home with small trinkets and decorations. Fall and Halloween decor are already on sale, so it's time to decorate! (I bought one of the yogi skeletons last weekend.)


Weighted Blankets Deals

Weighted blankets use deep pressure to simulate the feeling of being gently held, which is especially nice when you can't go out and hug those you miss. Our favorite weighted blanket isn't on sale, but several of our other picks are discounted. Check our guide for more details on what weight you should pick when choosing a blanket.

More Sleep Deals

See our full guides to sunrise alarms and mattresses to learn more about our picks. Also, check out our guide on Labor Day mattress deals—a lot of our favorite mattresses are on sale, including our top pick, the Helix Midnight Luxe Hybrid.

Arts and Crafts Deals

Keeping yourself busy in more ways than sitting in front of one of your many screens is essential in making it through quarantine. These deals will help if you've been considering picking up a new hobby or getting back into one you abandoned.
