Oversized Heated Ogee Throw

Snow-day movie marathons have met their match: This extra-large throw’s contemporary pattern comes in nine different colors, all of which are ready for their close-up on the couch. The plush polyester fabric is machine-washable, so buttery popcorn spills are no problem. BUY IT: $56 and up, overstock.com

Plush Triple Rib Warming Throw

Billed as "the world’s safest electric throw," this SoftHeat blanket boasts patented low-voltage technology that’s OK in the presence of moisture, pet-friendly and non-electromagnetic-radiation-emitting. Translation: If you and your four-legged friends have been hankering to throw a cocktail party in bed, the wait is over. BUY IT: $110, target.com

Diamond Knit Warming Blanket

The subtle tone-on-tone topstitching on Frontgate’s warming blanket pairs perfectly with high-end bedding, and its "macromink" plush fleece bottom layer is luxuriously smooth. Fair warning: You might start looking forward to temperatures dropping low enough to pull this coverlet out of the linen closet. BUY IT: $119 and up, frontgate.com

Oversized Faux Mink + Berber Fleece Heated Throw

The outdoor experts at Woolrich have been keeping the country warm for nearly 200 years — Civil War soldiers swaddled themselves in their blankets — and the modern descendants of those historic pieces are now defrosting 21st-century toes. This blanket is designed to adapt to overall, spot and ambient temperatures in the room. BUY IT: $85, kohls.com

Adelynn Heated Snuggle Throw Blanket

Thanks to this throw’s 6-foot cord, you don’t have to bundle up right next to an electrical outlet. Its abstract botanical pattern, in turn, blends in with decor instead of broadcasting midwinter blahs. BUY IT: $63 and up, bedbathandbeyond.com

Reversible Sherpa/RoyalMink Heated Throw

Shearling is a cold-weather classic, but it isn’t especially critter- (or budget-) friendly. This faux version has adjustable heat settings — from "warding off a wee chill" to "thawing out after an epic blizzard"— and its auto-off function kicks in after three hours, just in case you find yourself counting sheep on the sofa. BUY IT: $80, sunbeam.com

Electric Micro Fleece Heated Blanket

With 6 match-everything shades, whisper-thin heating coils, 10-hour automatic shutoff and 20 temperature settings, Beautyrest’s high-tech bedding is perfect for picky sleepers. Queen and King sizes have an extra level of customization: The left and right sides have their own controllers, so bedmates don’t have to compromise on heat levels. BUY IT: $100 and up, jossandmain.com

Silky Plush Warming Blanket

If you loathe those first frigid minutes of sliding between the sheets on a cold night, we think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship: Therapedic’s warming blankets have programmable digital controllers that pre-heat just in time for bed. BUY IT: $80 and up, bedbathandbeyond.com

Electric Throw

The extra-nubbly LofTec fabric of Sunbeam’s softest blanket is a nap MVP long before it’s plugged in, since its deep plush surface traps warmth. Once they’re called into action, sensors adjust its electric heat to provide consistent coziness. BUY IT: $54, target.com

Quilted Electric Blanket

There’s a whole lot of tech behind these cheery patterns: The "Micro Flannel" on their surface combines the feel of high-end cotton and the performance of synthetic fibers. Down-alternative layers between that fabric and the blankets’ heating elements make them extra-comfy. Isn’t science grand? BUY IT: $130 and up, cozywinters.com
