    In Italian we usualy say Buona notte e sogni d'oro. There is also the expression il bacio della buona notte... but obviously you can't use together with good night, it would be repetitive

    I don't know why (probably because it is a fixed expression), but it is better to say il bacio (and not un) and also to use it with a verb:
    - dare/mandare/ricevere (ecc.) il bacio della buona notte!

    To me, a nice way of wishing sweet dreams with a kiss could be ti auguro sogni d'oro con il bacio della buona notte! This is not a fixed expression but sounds quite cute!
