Made last-minute plans to host overnight guests for the holidays yet your current guest room bed has seen better days? The chances of getting one of the best mattresses of 2023 shipped to your door in time for Christmas is getting increasingly slim. However a good bed topper can boost the comfort, support and feel of your current bed. Luckily, three of this year's best mattress toppers are on sale today and each has super-fast shipping to reach you in time for Christmas Eve if you order now. 

Our favorite deal is 20% off the Viscosoft Active Cooling Copper Topper. This is a smaller discount than spotted in Viscosoft's Black Friday sale, but it's still a decent price cut and more importantly it will ship in time for Christmas. A queen size is down to $279 (was $349), and from our testing we think this 3" thick topper could easily be used as a mattress if you have unexpected guests for one night and no spare beds.

If you need a mattress topper but you don't necessarily need it before Christmas, there are plenty of good mattress sales running at the moment. They include 40% off the Tempur-Adapt Topper at Tempur-Pedic (prices from $191) with this Tempur-Pedic mattress deal. The Tempur-Adapt is number one bed topper recommendation overall – it's excellent for easing aches and pains during sleep too.

This memory foam topper has cooling properties and a firmer feel. At 4" thick, it offers great support for back sleepers  and can make your current bed more supportive. It’s also thick and firm enough to be used as a temporary bed for overnight stays. In our Viscosoft Active Cooling topper review, our testers praised the copper-infused foam and phase change top cover for its temperature regulation, which will keep hot sleepers cool, and also liked that the cover is a removable, washable cover for an easier clean. However, they warned that lightweight sleepers — or those who like the traditional contouring ”hug” of memory foam — may find it too firm. The topper comes with a 5-year warranty, 90-night sleep trial, and free delivery in three business days or less, meaning you’ll be sleeping on it by Christmas Eve if you order today.

Another one of our favourites, the cooling Molecule CopperWELL Mattress Topper earned a place in our guide thanks to its targeted support. At 3" thick, the topper uses a combination of firm area and soft zones to provide pressure relief and promote proper spinal alignment. Our Molecule CopperWELL Mattress Topper review says the topper’s medium firmness means it's suitable for most types of sleepers, but side sleepers may experience the most benefits. Its copper gel infusion adds superb temperature regulation for hot sleepers, plus it's antimicrobial for more hygienic sleep. While our testers were disappointed to find that a cover is not included, they felt that it still delivered high-quality restorative sleep. Currently, you can save 30% when ordering from Amazon and you’ll also get a 5-year warranty and pre-Christmas delivery.

One of our top picks for the best cheap mattress toppers, this Best Price topper is made from contouring, CertiPUR-US certified memory foam that’s gel-infused and ventilated to optimise airflow for a cooler night’s sleep. The budget-friendly topper currently comes in 7 sizes (from twin to California king) and 6 different thickness options (from 1.5” to 4”). We recommend choosing the 4” model if you plan on using the topper as a temporary makeshift bed. It also comes with a three year limited warranty, and if you order now, you should get this topper by Christmas Eve.
