For those of us who struggle with sleeping, there are seemingly countless remedies to help us hit the hay, but they’re rarely without complications and consequences. But have you tried something as simple as a weighted blanket? These clever coverings can potentially help ease anxiety and comfort those who struggle to relax. But which weighted blanket should you choose? Well, not to worry, we’ve got you covered - pun intended. We’ve sifted through numerous website and consumer reviews to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.
Layla Weighted Blanket
We’re kicking things off with somewhat of a rarity in the weighted blanket market: a reversible. This cotton blanket is available in various different sizes, with one side reminiscent of a traditional bed sheet, and the other more like a throw blanket that you might have on a couch. This entire blanket is also machine washable, unlike some blankets that require you to strip the cover off.
The Budget Pick
YnM Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets aren’t exactly cheap. However, YnM makes some awesome examples, at around half the price you’d pay for many other models. These blankets come in a variety of sizes and weights, so you can easily find the perfect blanket to suit you. But best of all, you can choose from a staggering amount of colors and finishes - which is rare, as many brands tend to only offer two or three, if that.
The Other Budget Pick
Luna Weighted Blanket
For good measure, we wanted to throw another great budget pick your way, this time from Luna. Similar to YnM, Luna’s weighted blanket range offers numerous different colors and unique designs - although Luna does tend to offer some more traditional pastel colors, if that’s your sort of thing. Luna also offers flexible weight and size categories, so you can tailor your blanket to your taste. And even though this is a budget pick, you’ll be glad to know that it has around 10,000 reviews from Amazon consumers, with 80% of them being 5 star!
Gravity Blanket: The Weighted Blanket
If you don’t mind investing in a pricier blanket, then one of the best on the market is this model from Gravity. Gravity makes premium weighted blankets in a number of different weight categories, and is available in either grey, navy or white. The Gravity Blanket also has a removable, machine washable cover. One of its best attributes is its small scale gridded stitching which houses the blanket’s glass beads, making for a more even distribution of weight.
Before we reveal our final pick, here are a few other great blankets that are worth considering:
AmazonBasics All-Season Cotton Weighted Blanket
Casper Sleep Weighted Blanket
Degrees Of Comfort Cooling Weighted Blanket
The Kid’s Choice
Roore Weighted Blanket for Kids
Although many of the blankets we’ve mentioned could be used by children, this one from Roore is specifically designed for kids. At just 5 pounds in weight, this blanket is aimed at kids who weigh around 40 to 60 pounds. Available in both blue and pink, it offers a soft, bumpy cover and might be useful for those who get a little anxious around bedtime. This blanket also has a removable, machine-washable cover for added convenience.
So which weighted blanket should you choose? Well, in terms of which one is comfier, everyone is going to have a different preference. However, as a guide, it’s claimed that the weight of a weighted blanket should be around 10% of your bodyweight. If you’re new to the weighted blanket game, and are maybe a little apprehensive, then the budget picks we listed are great options - plus they have tons of colors available.
