The Best Weighted Blankets on Amazon
Weighted blankets help stimulate pressure points to naturally improve mood and relaxation. Add one of these luxe covers to your home and start reaping the benefits.
Weighted blankets have been the hottest thing in bedding for a few years and at this point, a lot of people you know probably use one and swear by it. From easing insomnia to reducing anxiety and stress levels, weighted blankets can help address an array of health problems common in adults, kids and even pets. These heavy blankets, typically ranging from about five to 25 pounds, are designed based on deep touch pressure stimulation, which helps release serotonin in the brain to help you feel calm. This ultimately leads to a better night's sleep and a general feeling of next-day restfulness.
Depending on the style, size and weight you choose, weighted blankets can cost anywhere from $50 to $300. We combed through Amazon to find the best weighted blankets in a variety of price ranges. Check out our top picks below, from lowest price to highest price based on a 15-pound weight.
It's hard for us to resist a weighted blanket called the CuddleBug. This soft, breathable "anxiety blanket" uses glass beads instead of poly pellets that traditionally don't distribute evenly. This blanket is also suitable for all weather conditions and even works great on a couch, chair or lounger.

This weighted blanket features advanced quilting technology with bold stitching in each pocket to ensure long-lasting durability. Thirty-percent more glass beads and soft fiberfill are evenly sewn inside each pocket, too, to avoid glass bead leaks over time. The blanket itself is made of breathable, 100-percent cotton material, which helps maintain steady body temperature through the night. The blanket and duvet cover are sold separately, but the blanket's honeycomb design makes it look just as lovely on its own.

These gravity blankets are available in a wide variety of colors and weights ranging from five pounds to 25 pounds.

This blanket also features an extra liner to avoid any leakage of the beads. However, you will need to purchase a duvet for this one separately.

It also includes eight ribbons to keep the blanket and duvet in place.
