Weighted blankets are great for easing stress and anxiety, thanks to their ability to stimulate serotonin and create the feeling of a warm, comforting hug.

Nothing says winter like snuggling up in a blanket at night with a cup of tea and a good book – or watching a few episodes of your favourite show before dozing off.

While many of us have our favourite blankets to hold onto, it might be time for an upgrade – and a weighted blanket may just be the one to purchase.

Weighted blankets have numerous benefits, from helping poor sleepers get much-needed rest to easing anxiety and stress.

While they are like regular blankets, most have glass or plastic beads stitched into them, which gives the added weight that makes them oh-so-comfortable.

With the promise of pure relaxation, it’s no surprise that there is a rising number of people getting on the weighted blanket bandwagon – and we’ve curated the best of the best to purchase and meet any need.
