Winter Is Coming
Or rather, it is already here. Unless you are going to for a lengthy holiday trip to a location with a warmer climate you are going to need some chillproof protection. Imagine a cozy, soft blanket to wrap yourself up during the coldest hours of the day and night. Or, even better: A pre-warmed bed, courtesy of a high quality electric blanket.
Your bedding is what is going to make all the difference in winter. Choose right, and you're going to spend the coldest months of the year in cozy comfort. Choose wrong and be prepared to pay a lot of nightmare sized heating bills. Here are top 10 picks for warm blankets:
DZW's blanket is really something special: It is designed not only to provide warmth and comfort, but also to relax your nervous system. How? By simulating the feeling of a hug. It comes in many different versions. You are supposed to change the one that is roughly 10% of your body weight.
Made of 100% cotton, its compartments filled with hypo-allergenic, non-toxic and odorless sand pellets this is obviously a top quality blanket. Downside? Only one: The duvet cover is sold separately from the inner weighted layer.
InYard's USA premium weighted blanket is a bit on the expensive side, admittedly. Designed to suit anxious children – or likewise anxious adults – this blanked naturally induces a calming effect through the gentle pressure it provides. Similar to a hug, this will enable you to relax your busy mind after a tiring day and allow you to sleep deep like nothing else.
We have identified two downsides: First, the blanket is filled with plastic pellets. According to a number of users, this makes the blanket feel a bit hard. We could attribute this to a matter of opinion, but the fact that product is hand washable only is an objective downside. This is a big con in convenience.
Feeling chilly while on a tight budget? Then this is for you. Considerably less expensive than our aforementioned products, Utopia Bedding's thermal blankets offers high value for a relatively low investment. Easy to take care of and made of high quality materials this blanket is not only elegant by also highly versatile. Made to last, this is not going to shrink even after prolonged use and washing.
That being said, we found the blanket a bit thin. While certainly capable of providing adequate warmth, it won't provide you with the deep, calming feeling heavier blankets do.
4.6 out of 5 stars and the "Amazon's Choice" award. This comforter comes with high praise, indeed. Made of 100% Egyptian cotton fill – probably the best material there is – the blanket is both sturdy as well as comfortable. Available in queen size, this product will make you experience the softest and coziest winter of your life.
Although a number of customers had problems with their blankets – apparently, they came stained – the company's customer support has exceeded expectations and fixed the issues immediately. This is definitely another upside to consider when it comes to Egyptian Beddings.
Now, we will not claim Chezmoi Collection's product will keep you warmer or more comfortable than some of our previous listings – althought it will do its job admirably. What we will claim, though, is that is probably the most stylish product. With a very modern look, this 100% polyester fabric made blanket will keep your room pretty and cozy simultaneously.
The product comes in 3-piece set, which includes a comforter and two shams. Everything is easy to handle and clean – you just put it into th wash-machine – which is a big plus for convenience.

All in a all a solid, budget option for you to consider.
Imagine being able to go to bed and find it already heated and warm. Now, imagine having 10 different heat settings and a 10-hour auto-off function. Sounds amazing right? This is what Sunbeam's blanket does – while still staying comfortable and soft by itself. In case you're wondering: The blanket is machine washable and dryer safe. That being said, whenever there are wires there is a slight risk of malfunction. Undoubtedly, this product will prove to be less durable than normal blankets.
