If you’ve found yourself shivering your way through this more Arctic-than-usual winter, you’re not alone. Between the sudden temperature drop and the realisation that it’s only mid-June (meaning we still have to endure at least two more months of this winter business), it might just be time to invest in a heated throw blanket.
If you haven’t heard of them, heated throw blankets are basically like an electric blanket, only you can burrito yourself up in it. They usually have a variety of different temperature settings and are made from a range of different fabrics, so you can find one that’s soft and as aesthetically pleasing as it is toasty.
I know what you’re thinking, I bet it’s going to cost you a small fortune to purchase one of these plush bad boys. Good news: They’re actually really affordable, with most of them ranging from $60 for a basic fleece throw to $130 for a bougie faux fur one. If you thought hoodie blankets were good, wait until you snuggle up in one of these.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of the best-selling heated throw blankets that you can have delivered to your door before it really gets cold.
