Therapy Blanket

With the silly season sneaking up, it’s time to get serious about sorting your Christmas shopping list. And as we start to chip away at our long lists, there’s one gift that pops up again and again: weighted blankets. Are you curious about weighted blankets and keen to find one that makes a great gift? You’ve come to the right place. 

You’d be forgiven for thinking a weighted blanket is just for winter (but you’d also be wrong). We promise that no matter who you’re buying for, a therapy blanket will make a cosy and chic present all your family and friends will love. The Therapy Woven Weighted Blanket ($315), in particular, is a stylish knitted blanket with all the “feels” of a regular weighted blanket, but with a more luxe look that makes it ideal for decorating your space.

Now that we’ve got the aesthetics out of the way, here are all the reasons a weighted blanket is an extremely thoughtful gift. 

The Benefits of a Weighted Blanket

The chunky knit texture of the Therapy Woven Weighted Blanket makes it a statement piece for your bed or couch, but it also has all the therapeutic benefits of a regular quilt-style weighted blanket.

For many people, weighted blankets can provide some much-needed relief to stress and promote healthy sleep habits by creating the feeling of being hugged or held and applying a gentle, evenly distributed pressure to your body. Plenty of scientific research is underway, with early research suggesting they may be beneficial for conditions like anxiety and insomnia, sleep quality for people with autism and ADHD.

In short, weighted blankets can be a wonderful aid to help you:

  • calm down and feel less anxious in stressful situations
  • take time out from your daily routine to relax
  • fall asleep more quickly and experience a deeper sleep
  • wake up feeling refreshed and energetic
  • enjoy a general sense of wellbeing

Weighted Blankets Can Also Be Chic

The savvy Scandinavians know a thing or two about creating a healthy home haven with their concept of hygge (which translates to comfort, cosiness, and contentment) having taken off all around the world. With its chunky, textured design and Scandi aesthetic, the Therapy Woven Weighted Blanket will have you feeling hygge-happy, in no time.

Soft and seriously snuggly, the blanket is the ultimate accessory for creating an oasis of calm in your living room or bedroom. Who doesn’t love to bundle up in something that feels like a full-body-sized jumper? Now imagine giving that gift to someone else for Christmas — are you starting to understand why we recommend it as a great present? 

While creating a luxurious space to relax at home tops the list of many people’s decorating goals, we all still understandably want a great design to complement the comfort.

The Therapy Woven Weighted Blanket is a textured statement piece that takes pride of place in your loved one’s lounge room or bedroom, so they can easily enjoy the calming benefits and glam up their space at the same time. It can be layered over bed linen or styled as a throw on a couch or armchair when it’s not being used. 

Knitted Weighted Blankets Are Practical Year-Round

Most therapy blankets are created in a similar way to a bedspread, coverlet or comforter, with a quilted and tightly woven design. But not the Therapy Woven Weighted Blanket. Made from an exceptionally soft outer layer of spandex, this blanket has an amazing amount of stretch and recovery. 

Plus, its open-weave construction has the added benefit of allowing more air circulation and keeping you cool as a cucumber in the summer months. And because it swaps the usual bead weights for a plush and pliable recycled poly interior, it’s also extremely durable — a huge plus considering how much your gift recipient will want to use it. The blanket can be used all through the year but truly comes into its own during the summer, when the weather warms up and you want a cover or throw with more breathability. 

If you’re all but sold on gifting a weighted blanket to your loved ones this Christmas as a thoughtful and practical present, head to the Therapy Blanket website to check out the range. The Therapy Woven Weighted Blanket comes in three colours and two weights, plus, they have a full range of pillows, blankets and accessories available, too.
