There’s a lot of things out in the market right now that can help improve your sleep and help you relax, the biggest one being the weighted blanket. Developed to give you a soothing sense of control, like being swaddled like an infant, weighted blankets are everywhere. If you’re in the market for something to help you take the edge off, try one of these top-rated weighted blankets.
Casper Weighted Blanket
This weighted blanket stands out because of its quilted pattern. That means instead of all of the weight falling to the bottom, like you might find in others, the weight remains evenly distributed throughout the entire blanket. It’s relaxing, I think, to not have to worry about where all those little beads are heading.
ZonLi Adult Weighted Blanket
Another Amazon best-seller is the ZonLi weighted blanket, which Scouted contributor Gideon Grudo enjoyed while using. “I found that to be too much for me for the entire sleeping night,” he said. “But a little bit before bed was all I needed.”
YnM Weighted Blanket
Amazon’s best-selling weighted blanket has a 4.5-star rating on almost 4,000 reviews. It’s made from soft, durable cotton and filled with glass beads. You can pick your size and weight, from five pounds up to 30 pounds.
Vellux Weighted Throw
This is the weighted blanket my parents have and they love it. It’s designed to be used on top of or underneath your comforter. It’s made out of a polyester cotton blend so it’s breathable and the cover is removable and machine washable, too.
Napper Weighted Blanket
Bearaby makes the best looking weighted blankets out there. They’re naturally weighted, which means there’s no beads or silicone to deal with. They’re also incredibly breathable, so you can wear them all year round.
Tranquility Temperature Balancing Weighted Blanket
I try to avoid weighted blankets that trap heat too well. It’s much easier to add a regular blanket on top than it is to take your weighted blanket on and off when you get too warm. The Tranquility weighted blanket is temperature-controlled, meaning the blanket will regulate heat to make sure you’re having the most refreshing experience possible.
This is one of the most design-forward weighted blankets out there. It has lots of fun designs but also works extremely well, thanks to its quilted fabric. It even has straps to keep it in place during the middle of the night.
Room Essentials 12lb Weighted Blanket
A medium-weight blanket is great for someone who’s just getting used to the idea. Choose from a soft blush pink or heather gray removable duvet. It’s a great dorm room addition or early Christmas gift. Save at Target with discounts from our coupon page.
Therapedic Reversible Weighted Blanket
If you want the ultimate cozy factor, add a plush-lined weighted blanket to your couch. This 12-pound option is soft and luxurious and warm, so light up the fireplace and snuggle in.
Gravity Weighted Blanket
The original weighted blanket, the Gravity Blanket, is full of microbeads and has a grid stitching to keep them evenly distributed. The soft microfiber cover is also machine washable. Daily Beast readers can get 10% off with code DailyBeast10 a checkout.
