If you’re looking for a gift for that hard-to-shop-for person in your life (we all have at least one of them on our gift list), then give them a weighted blanket this holiday season. It’s a one-size-fits-all gift that’s sure to please even the pickiest person, or the person who already seems to have everything. Everyone loves blankets, and you can’t have enough of them. Also, weighted blankets are great gifts for people who have trouble sleeping.
Remember when you had little ones, and you’d swaddle them tightly in a blanket? Weighted blankets provide the same sort of comfort and warmth for adults and children. In fact, weighted blankets have been shown to help improve anxiety and stress. They can also help lessen the symptoms of Restless Leg Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. The list of benefits for weighted blankets is long, and as we learn more about them, the list keeps growing.
Both adults and children alike can use weighted blankets, but you want to make sure that you get an appropriate weight if you’re using the blanket with a child. In general, you want a weighted blanket to be 10% of your body weight plus 1-2 pounds. So, a 50 pound child would use a 6-7 pound weighted blanket, and a 100 pound child would use one that’s 11-12 pounds. For adults, a weighted blanket that’s 10% of your body weight is usually the best choice.
Aside from the weight itself, there are also a number of varieties available in weighted blankets. For example, weighted blankets are available in a number of materials like fleece or cotton. You can also find cooling weighted blankets or waterproof options.
We offer a selection of weighted blankets at Factory Mattress and Bedrooms in Greenville, NC, so be sure to stop by and see us while you’re doing your holiday shopping this year.
