Since I was going to get a humidifier, I figured I might as well make it a fun looking one and not like the giant boxes that I grew up with, so I selected Crane's Pink Ribbon tear drop shaped humidifier ($35, Amazon) for my bedroom. It features the Pink Ribbon since partial proceeds go towards the fight of breast cancer too. I found that it's really easy to fill up the tank and clean it. It also has a dial where you can select the different speed and intensity of the mist. I'm really loving how it starts blowing out air as soon as I turn it on, and the minute I breathe into the steam, my congestion clears. I've been using it almost every night when I go to bed. It's also energy efficient, as it uses less energy than a regular household light bulb.
