You know what’s the absolute worst? Not being able to get comfortable — especially after a long, exhausting day. All we want to do is kick back on the couch or even head straight to bed and relax, but our mind and body have other plans. We start feeling restless, stuck in that strange space somewhere between hyper energy and overwhelming fatigue.
We can try drinking tea, meditating, lighting a candle or simply going to sleep, but it’s usually not enough. We need something that can really guarantee instant comfort — and preferably something we don’t have to get up to use. Feel like you can relate? Know someone else who struggles with this type of situation? It’s weighted blanket time!
Whether you’re new to the idea of weighted blankets or haven’t done much research on the subject, here’s why we’re recommending this fan-favorite to you. According to Daniel Noyed, Certified Sleep Coach, “Weighted blankets take their inspiration from a therapeutic technique called deep pressure stimulation, which uses firm, controlled pressure to induce a feeling of calm.” They may also provide comfort and security and even increase levels of melatonin to help you sleep peacefully!

This specific weighted blanket comes in multiple sizes. Quility provides a weight chart in the Amazon photos, but it’s generally recommended that you grab a blanket that’s about 10 to 14% of your body weight. This blanket keeps things heavy with a premium micro glass bead filling, distributed evenly via the quilting while remaining malleable so that the blanket can still drape easily over your body.
Heavy often means hot though, right? Not in this case. This Quility blanket uses temperature regulation technology, so even though it’s thick, it’s designed to keep you from sweating under it. The fabric is made from 100% cotton as well to keep things breathable!
Using a weighted blanket can often feel like a big hug — one that doesn’t let go until you’re ready. For this reason, it could potentially help with feelings of anxiety, sadness or worry. Along with addressing that mental restlessness, it could help with physical restlessness as well, whether it be general or in the form of something like restless leg syndrome. No more bouncing!
You’ll notice on the Amazon page that you can grab this blanket with the insert only, which still has a nice look that people may prefer, or with a cover. It has duvet loops attached, so it’s easy to add on a cover of your own as well. Grab whichever best matches your decor!
Of course, you can also grab a second in whichever color you think a friend or family member may like. Get your holiday shopping done early by grabbing this weighted blanket today. You don’t even necessarily have to know who it’s for yet. Pretty much anyone would enjoy receiving this as a gift. There’s a reason it has such a whopping number of reviews on Amazon!
