These 3 weighted blankets are the perfect gift to beat holiday stress

We all know someone who spends the holiday season working flat out. Between shopping, cooking, decorating, and trying to ensure everything runs smoothly, they hardly seem to take a breath before January. So what better gift to give them than the gift of good sleep? While the best mattress might be out of your gift-giving price range (no judgement), a weighted blanket is a soothing and affordable alternative.

Weighted blankets use either pockets of beads or clever knitted designs to add extra weight across the blanket. The best weighted blankets press against the body evenly, creating a relaxing and grounding experience. While sometimes weighted blankets are recommended for anxiety, almost everyone can feel the benefit of their hug-like warmth. Let’s take a look at some of the best weighted blanket gifts for those in need of a little self-care.
