For people who have trouble sleeping through the night (especially due to stress, anxiety, and Restless Legs Syndrome), weighted blankets can be super helpful. Not only are they super cozy, the weight they distribute onto your body can be soothing and comforting, which is why many people who use them describe them as feeling like a warm hug. But if you're on the hunt for the perfect weighted blanket for you, it can be a challenge to weed through all the options out there.
Along with well-known weighted blankets, like the original Gravity blanket and the BlanQuil weighted blanket (which is a favorite amongst celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian), there are a lot of other weighted blankets (including a brand new one from Layla Sleep!) to choose from with tons of reviews from happy customers—and all at different price points, too. To help you narrow 'em down, here are 10 of the best-reviewed weighted blankets out there...I'll let the reviews take it from here.
"My husband travels on and off for work. This plush blanket helps me fall asleep and STAY asleep when I'm home alone for a number of days. It is as if I am being spooned but much, much better. Btw my toddlers also prefer this blanket whilst watching TV—it keeps them calm as if they are being cradled." — Aniqa C.
"Finally, I got my hands on one, and it exceeded all my expectations! It is so soothing and calming. The blanket is heavy enough so I fall asleep in under 10 minutes, but not too heavy so I get too hot or can't move around. I love this and highly recommend it to everyone!!" — Kamila Jambulatova
"I was pleasantly surprised on how relaxed I felt using the Blanquil. I wasn't sure what to expect at first, but I had already heard good things about it before I got it. Besides being warm and cozy, the Blanquil made me feel very relaxed and calm. It has been very comforting to use it." — Bonnie H.
"Before I received this weighted blanket, according to my Fitbit, I was averaging about 4.5 hours of sleep per night due to pain. My first night with this blanket and I slept over 7 hours!!
