Feeling like you need a comforting hug? Here are a list of blankets that will do the trick, and help you get a better night's sleep.
If you struggle to fall asleep at night (or stay asleep), a weighted blanket may be exactly what you need. Along with a better night’s sleep, they help with relaxation, managing anxiety and regulating body temperature. Whether you’re looking for something light and breathable or heavy and comforting, we’ve got you covered—literally.
This weighted blanket is meant to help soothe you by applying deep pressure that’s intended to relax your neurotransmitters (sounds nice, hey?). Heirloom Linens is a Victoria-based company that makes weighted blankets out of 100% cotton material. They come in four different weight options (7lbs, 10lbs, 15lbs, 20lbs) and two colours (grey or marine). Available for at-home delivery or pick-up in-store. From $135, heirloomlinens.com
Hand woven with natural cotton, this blanket is sure to provide you with some stress-free snooze time. It comes in nine different colours (this terracotta is gorgeous) and has multiple weight options: 8lbs, 12lbs, 15lbs, 20lbs and 25lbs. There’s also two types of knits to chose between—classic or natural—depending on the look you’re going for. Free shipping is available to all provinces in Canada. From $200, silkandsnow.com
This blanket uses high-density glass-granules and temperature-regulating fabric to keep you sleeping comfortably. It was designed for relaxation and calmness and the company was founded in Edmonton by goodmorning.com (all things bed), where the blanket is also available. You can assume they know a thing or two about sleep. The blanket itself weighs 15lbs and comes in a soothing dark blue colour. Free Canada-wide shipping is available on their website. $119, loganancove.ca
This soft and breathable blanket is made from 100% long-staple cotton farmed in India and uses 90% less water than typical farming methods. The company was founded by Dr. Kathrin Hamm, who was motivated to combat her own sleep struggles. The blanket comes in four different weights (10lbs, 15lbs, 20lbs, 25lbs) and five colours (the moonstone grey is pictured here). From $259, bearaby.ca and nordstrom.ca
This blanket is for those warm summer months (I’m looking at you, heatwave) when you’re still wanting some weighted comfort to help you chill out. It’s ideal for anyone who struggles with night sweats, anxiety and stress and it comes in four different sizes and two different weights (15lbs and 20lbs). Depending on your vibe–or how often you eat in bed–you can choose between white or grey. They even offer a quiz on their site to help match you to a blanket that will best suit your needs. Free Canada-wide shipping is available. From $299, hush.ca and shop.wellwise.ca
This company has both a “Microplush” warming blanket and a “Breeze” cooling one. They are designed to calm your mind for uninterrupted sleep that will have you feeling well rested in the mornings (count me in!). The blankets are offered in both navy and grey and come in four different sizes and three different weights (15lbs, 20lbs, 30lbs). Free Canada-wide shipping is available on their site. Shop at gravid.ca or shop.wellwise.ca
