As you're counting down the days until the arrival of the big guy with the reindeer, are you also counting down the days until the arrival of house guests? There's nothing like hosting out-of-town family and friends to up the holiday stress level, especially if your guest room is anything other than hotel-like. 

One super fast upgrade you can make in time for Christmas is the addition of a luxurious mattress topper to the guest bed. Don't worry, it only sounds expensive! Amazon has a wide assortment of mattress topper styles and materials, and many of the ones that receive rave reviews are actually on sale right now!  

With Amazon prime, you can get these comfy toppers in time for the holidays, so your great aunt doesn't have to wake up with that kink in her back. Not an Amazon Prime member? Sign up for your free 30-day trial here and enjoy all the benefits membership has to offer (we're talking free fast shipping and great TV).

Perfect for that hand-me-down mattress you've been dragging around from house to house since college, these memory foam masters and down alternative pads are just what the chiropractor ordered. So pack your cart with these clouds of comfort for your guest rooms and toss a few more under the tree — they make a great gift! 

Bare Home Pillow-Top Queen Mattress Pad

Laze in the lap of luxury in this ultra-soft Microplush microfiber mattress pad that adds 1.5- inches of softness to any standard mattress. Fits all depths from 6" to 20" and features a fully elasticized deep fitted skirt to ensure it stays snug. The down-alternative filling is nice and soft; it also deters allergens.

This pad gives you the best of both seasons: Fully reversible, it keeps you extra cozy in the winter with its fuzzy side; for cool-as-a-cucumber summer nights, just flip it over and enjoy its breathable microplush. Pop it in the laundry between fippings — yep, it's machine washable — to keep it fresh. Not convinced? Take it for a 30-day spin; you can return in the highly unlikey event you're not satisfied.

"Absolutely the softest, most comfortable mattress pad...EVER!!!" said one thrilled user. "I love this pad/cover... My mattress is a little firm for me. I needed an extra layer of cushion and this was it... This is a fantastic product. I will order it again and have already recommended it to family and friends. I am sensitive to off-gassing smells, give me horrible headaches. I had none with this pad."

I couldn't be more pleased."
