Once the joy of the holidays has passed, is there anything left to love about winter? We’re skeptical—but there is one thing about the cold weather months we love, and that’s having an excuse to spend an entire day (week?) cuddled underneath a warm, snuggly blanket. Here, we’ve gathered together 10 different types of blankets we’d love to burrow under all winter long, from cute heated blankets that are perfect for a chilly night of Netflix binging, to trendy weighted blankets that add an extra layer of comfort on those dreaded sick days.
This weighted blanket was a hot holiday gift this year and for good reason. The added weight evenly distributes pressure across your entire body, which can help increase the production of serotonin, resulting in a deeper, more relaxed sleep. Sign us up!
Sure, keeping a heated blanket around the house is nice and all, but have you ever considered getting one for your car? This rustic plaid option plugs right into your car’s DC accessory socket, so you can stay snug on the go.
Whimsical, yes, but the mermaid blanket has a practical side too since it eliminates the need to tuck your blanket around your legs to keep out those pesky drafts. Okay, we might be reaching a bit, but you have to admit… these are really cute.
Plus, faux fur throws are one of those decor trends that never seem to go out of style. Keep the look fresh and opt for one with blue or pink undertones and get ready to receive a lot of compliments.
You can never go wrong with a classic, fluffy down-alternative comforter, which gives all the warmth and softness of down, but is hypoallergenic and a lot easier to clean (just throw it in the washing machine!)
It might not be practical to actually cover yourself in dogs wearing sweaters, but you can cover yourself in a blanket covered in dogs wearing sweaters, and that’s really the next best thing.
Why invest in both a blanket and a robe when you can get something that pulls double duty? This fleece number would be particularly useful when you’re sick, as it comes with pockets that would be great for storing tissues or slices of pizza (hey, we like comfort food when we’re sick).
You can never go wrong with a classic wool blanket in a neutral tone. We especially like this one since it reminds us of those vintage Swiss army blankets that interior designers love so much.
A cozy quilt in a wintry pattern is the best way to make your home or apartment feel like a quaint cabin in the woods or a ritzy ski chalet. Add a nice hot toddy and a roaring fireplace to the equation and we predict you won’t want to leave the house until spring.
