Cue the Game of Thrones theme song, because winter is coming. When the weather outside is frightful, nothing beats a warm, soft blanket to curl up in. To help you prepare for the next few months, we found five of the best blankets that you can purchase right now. Whether you live in a Chicago apartment or a slightly warmer city, these blankets will be there for you all winter long. Just add a cup of tea and a good book, and you’ll be all set for a warm winter in your apartment. Hibernation, commence.
We’re animal lovers, and we fully support faux fur. There’s something especially luxurious about wrapping yourself up in a faux fur blanket, and this one from West Elm is a perfect choice. We love that it comes in a variety of colors, and you can get it personalized, too. (Plus, it’s on sale!)
Heated blankets are essential for those of us who are particularly susceptible to cold weather. This is a great, affordable option you can order right from Amazon. It offers three heating levels, and it has a safety feature so that it doesn’t overheat. It’s also machine washable, so cleaning it will be easy.
We believe pom-poms make most things in life better, and blankets are no exception. This pom-pom-adorned blanket from Pottery Barn is super soft, machine washable, and ultra cozy. It comes in three neutral tones—light khaki, ivory, or grey— so you can choose a color that will complement your current decor. (It’s on sale, too!)
When “cozy” is right in the name, you know you’ve found something special. This Cozy Weave Throw from Crate & Barrel is basically a warm sweater in blanket form. We love that it comes in cool colors, like green or blue—it could provide the perfect pop of color your couch is missing.
For optimum coziness, consider investing in a weighted blanket this winter. Research has shown that “deep pressure” can help to relieve stress and anxiety, and weighted blankets can provide that, along with warmth and comfort. Weighted blankets are extra heavy, so this one offers a convenient cooling-cover option in case you feel overheated.
