Using a sleep mask is almost like sleeping with the lights off. It’s very budget friendly and you can be stylish with it too. The padded foam blocks light from reaching your eyes while they are closed so you can enjoy your sleep. And your partner can keep the lights on to sleep. Everybody wins.

Get a bedside lamp.  

How to Pick a Bedside Lamp

A bedside lamp while upping the look of your room, is also very efficient in cases like this. Especially when you can’t wait for your s/o to fall asleep so you can turn off the lights.  They’re not too bright and you can place it on the night stand close your partner so he or she still feels like the lights are on.
