I don't know what materials to look for or what prices to get them at. I heard Goose Down Pillows are good.

If you want to splurge on (flax) linen sheets, west elm frequently has sales. It would still be more expensive than high end cotton sheets, but not by that much.

If you can remember a hotel you stayed at that had great sheets maybe call and ask them what they use.

I've been using Peach Skin sheets and they're amazing. I ordered mine from their site as I'm not sure if they have a location or not. They don't sleep too hot or cold, they're antimicrobial and all that nonsense, and they refuse to get pilling 2 years in so far. And they feel like a smoother version of a peach.

I recommend a buckwheat hulls pillow. Best support and comfort of your head and neck.

Any good high thread count sheets will be good. We always get the clearance ones at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Usually they are on clearance because they are some color that didn't catch on, but they are the same high quality.

How expensive do you wanna get on sheets? If you want the same quality as Presidents Bush, Obama, Trump go here: https://www.bollandbranch.com/ B,B&B sheets are good but make sure you get a style you feel is comfortable (sateen, microfiber, etc).

Pillows are a little more difficult since everyone requires a different feel. Buckwheat hulls and gel foam seem to be the best two fillings from what I've tried.

I use Target percale sheets, and some cheap Amazon gel foam pillows and I sleep pretty well without breaking the bank.

Boll and Branch is a gimmick. Try Authenticity 50... 100% Supima Cotton.

As for a pillow, I actually like MyPillow but it's far from the best.

There's plenty of good sheets. I usually get a set from one or two stores on Black Friday. It's a good price for trying something new. I have a few favored sets and the rest for back up.

Do they go on sale? What prices should I get them at?

I don't use Boll and Branch, I just know some people who did and said they were good sheets if a bit pricey.

MyPillow seems okay but I haven't trjed it yet so I don't have an opinion.

Avoid like the plague any of those discounted sheets online which claim a really high thread count and the price too good to be true (e.g. 1200-1800 Thread Count for ~$30USD - such as https://www.opensky.com/laurelparkho...-4pc-sheet-set ) It's mostly shaved microfiber and they sleep warm/not comfortable especially after a few washes. Waste of $$$.

High end - https://www.cariloha.com/bed-bath/bedding/sheets.html
Bamboo Sheets which are ultra smooth and comfy... might be too soft for some people. If you have a Costco near you they have roadshows for a company called "Aloha Soft" - https://www.alohasofthome.com/bamboo-sheets.html
https://www.costco.com/aloha-soft-schedule.html
Cariloha and AlohaSoft are the same company, so you'll spend around $100 at Costco for the same product.

Solid mid-range - https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/sto...408?poc=234926
Constant 20% off coupons for BB&B so you should be able to save some money but a worthwhile investment.

I love the sheets I bought on Garnett Hill. They're 100% supima cotton with a percale weave. If you sleep hot these are the sheets for you. Be prepared to pay more for these sheets, but they are totally worth it. I waited until they had a sale and got the whole set for about $90 (flat sheet, fitted sheet, and two king-sized pillow cases).

Check the recommendations on Sweethome/Wirecutter by New York Times.

For pillows I really like the Tuft and Needle pillow...super soft but also supportive in an almost elastic way. Coop Home Goods also makes some damn good memory foam pillows.

I love bamboo sheets. Check the best reviewed ones on Amazon...they can be a little pricey though.

I only buy Calvin Klein cotton bedsheets... so crispy and cool. You can buy them at Winners at lower prices.

I hate hate hate bamboo sheets or anything microfibre.

Yeah, I have these and like them. My wife and I upgraded to a king-sized bed last year and bought Brooklinen sheets, down pillows, and down duvet all in one shot. About all I'd criticize is that the button closures on the duvet covers could be more durable. We've torn a couple button holes already.

If youre looking for something that isn't super expensive I highly recommend the Threshold Performance 400 Thread Count from Target. I was doing some research a while back and I saw these were recoemmended quite often. They're about 50 bucks for a fitted, regular sheet, and 2 pillow covers, they're extremely soft and have really made my nights better.
