The Best Weighted Blankets, According To Soothed Reviewers

Yawn! Welcome to Sleep Week, a seven-day stretch where we source you the best buys in the Zzz-catching business—from editor-vetted bedtime rituals to exclusive mattress deals and more of the internet’s most slumber-worthy scores. Go ahead, hit snooze with us.
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. With a full-throttle holiday season now behind us and nothing but a long, dreary stretch of January to look forward to you, you can find us WFB (working from bed) as we WFH — and we may or may not be laptopping away ensconced in a weighted blanket for maximum rejuvenating snuggles.
Weighted blankets promise many things, from merely simulating the compression of 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.
