The Best Weighted Blankets, According To Soothed Reviewers

Refinery29 logo Refinery29 1 day ago Elizabeth Buxton

During those moments in our lives when we feel stressed or overwhelmed, we find ourselves revisiting the self-care practices and products that work best for soothing our overworked and over-tired minds. And from our current WFB (Work From Bed) posts, we’ve got weighted blankets top of mind to get that comforting job done.

Weighted blankets are designed for everything from simulating a hug to reducing stress and improving sleep — but, as an anxiety-management solution, they aren’t for everyone. At most, the heavyweight throws can serve as a mechanism that provides a feeling of support and calm by replicating deep-pressure touch; at least, it can be used as an extra snuggly layer to add to your couch or bed-scape. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the top-reviewed weighted blankets on the market according to customers who are soothed by them IRL — from handwoven velvety knits to glass bead-filled quilted styles.

And remember: If you are experiencing anxiety and are in need of crisis support, please call the Crisis Call Center’s 24-hour hotline at 1-775-784-8090.

Welcome to Hype Machine, our hit-list of the top reviewed products across the web — according to a crowd of die-hard shoppers. Call this your 4-star & up only club, with entry granted by our devoted-to-the-goods shop editors.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

Hammacher Schlemmer The Heated Weight Blanket A winter weather dream. This heated-weighted blanket combo is 13lbs, filled with non-toxic micro glass beads, and features four heat settings ranging from 90 to 105 degrees. The hype: 4.4 out of 5 stars and 22 reviews on Hammacher Schlemmer What they're saying: "This is the perfect blanket for that member of your family who's always "freezing" - no matter what the temperature is! In the summer, the weight is all you need, to feel calm and cozy, but in the winter, when those chilly drafts creep up from toes to knees, is when the heated part of the blanket takes center stage. Some genius thought of this and I am so glad they did." — Alexandra, Hammacher Schlemmer Reviewer Hammacher Schlemmer The Heated Weighted Blanket, $, available at Hammacher Schlemmer
