Cooler weather is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about how to keep your space warm and cozy all winter long. A simple and affordable solution? Pick up a blanket or two to have on hand once the temperature drops. Here are five of our favorites!
The Weighted Blanket
This Gravity Blanket will, quite literally, weigh you down with warmth. Weighted blankets can help reduce stress and anxiety as well as improve your quality of sleep — using one is like being held or hugged. The Gravity Blanket is popular, but a little pricey. If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, check out the YnM Weighted Blanket from Amazon.
The Footed Throw Blanket
Do you hate when your feet stick out from underneath a blanket? You’ll love the Brookstone® NAP Footed Throw Blanket. Not only is it super soft, it also has little pockets on one end that are specifically designed to keep your feet warm and cozy while you’re curled up on the couch watching TV or taking an afternoon nap.
The Chunky Hand Knit Blanket
You can dress up your bed or couch with this Oversized Chunky Hand Knit Decorative Throw from Target. It’s super cozy and fluffy, and it’s available in a few different neutral colors. You can also check out some tutorials online and try to make your own hand-knitted blanket if you’re feeling creative.
The Cozy Fleece Blanket
This Cabin Fleece Throw from Eddie Bauer is perfect for wintertime. The best part? It’s reversible: There’s patterned fleece on one side (there are several fun and seasonal options to choose from) and super soft sherpa fleece on the other. It would also make a great gift for anyone on your holiday shopping list this year!
The Heated Blanket
There’s nothing quite like curling up under a warm, heated blanket and sipping on a warm beverage when it’s cold outside. The Beautyrest® Zuri Heated Throw Blanket is ultra soft and has three different heat settings. Plus, it automatically shuts off after two hours, so you don’t have to worry about dozing off whenever it’s on.
