Thinking of buying a weighted blanket for yourself or someone else? Now might be the time, because Gravity Blankets is offering 20% sitewide, now through Dec. 31, as a part of its post-holiday sale. In addition to weighted blankets, the company offers weighted throws, duvet covers, sleep masks and more.
If you're unfamiliar with the concept, a weighted blanket is just what it sounds like: a heavy blanket. That heaviness results from glass (or sometimes plastic) beads sewn into the material. The idea is that this added weight helps you feel more secure, less anxious and so on. Here's everything you should know about weighted blankets (and why you should buy one).
Gravity is one of the big names in this product category, and was even named one of our favorite weighted blankets of this year. The company's products are a bit on the expensive side (and make no mistake, there are cheaper options), but the 20% discount goes a long way toward making them more competitive.
I tried one myself and found it to be excellent for napping -- that weight really is pleasant -- but can get a little stuffy at nighttime. The weight of the standard blanket really amped up the heat, so if you tend to sleep hot like I do, consider opting for the cooling blanket. But everyone is different, and Gravity offers a 30-day return policy so you have plenty of time to test it.
