Weighted blankets don't just keep you warm and cozy (though they're great that, of course). They can actually lower your stress levels, ease you to sleep at night, and just generally help you unwind after an exhausting day.
Gravity Blankets popularized the product category, and claim that their 15, 20, and 25 pound blankets "use the power of deep touch pressure stimulation to simulate the feeling of being held." It's basically a big bear hug that you can buy and wrap yourself in whenever you want. That pressure can increase your brain's levels of calming seratonin and sleep-inducing melatonin. You know when the dentist puts that lead apron on your chest for the x-rays? Don't you immediately feel calmer, despite being, you know, at the dentist? Imagine that feeling, but for your whole body, and in the comfort of your own home. I've owed and used a Gravity Blanket for years now, and it's one of the single most life-changing products I've ever purchased.
Gravity just launched a rare sale for Valentine's Day, offering 15% off blankets and throws with promo code LOVE. That'll bring any of their standard weighted blankets down to $160, no matter which weight you choose (they recommend 10% of your bodyweight). The code will also work on the brand's more breathable cooling blankets, or even its shareable, 35 pound Queen/King blankets.
