When the temperatures drop, there’s nothing better than curling up into a ball with a ridiculously thick, plush blanket with the thermostat cranked all the way up… at least to me. You see, despite growing up in the northeast all my life, and having experienced more snowstorms that I can count, I AM NOT a cold weather fan. So during the months where beaches and sunshine are far out of reach, I like to keep my indoor habitat rather cozy. This makes it all the more surprising that I hadn’t sooner discovered the wonder that is the electric blanket. And after trying the Beautyrest electric plush throw during a visit to a cousin’s house, I’m forever changed.

My cousin, who’s rather warm blooded, offered me this blanket after I’d mentioned how cold it was in her living room. The material was already so soft and plush that I immediately felt a little warmer as I nestled into it. Once she plugged it in and it started to kick into high gear, I felt a warmth that was so comforting it lulled me to sleep. Once I woke up from my cat nap, my cousin glanced over at me, chuckling. “The electric blanket gets people every time,” she said. Clearly, I wasn’t the first guest that had fallen into a trance from this thing… but it made me look into this blanket for myself.

The Beautyrest electric plush throw comes in seven charming colors and measures 60 inches by 70 inches (the perfect oversized blanket for movie bingeing on the couch). It features three heat settings and 2-hour auto shut off, so you never have to worry about dozing off while overheating. What’s also cool about the blanket is that it won’t completely roast you. Instead, it uses Secure Comfort heated technology that adjusts the temperature of your throw based on overall temperature, spot temperatures, and the ambient temperature of your room. This ensures you get a consistent flow of warmth without totally burning up. Best of all, you can remove the plug and throw it in the wash in between uses.

Macy’s customers who have reviewed this product also seem to be equally impressed, especially those who work from home. “This blanket is fantastic when you need a little extra warmth,” wrote one shopper. “It is super soft and has a ton of settings to keep you cozy no matter how cold it is. I have the twin size and use it as a lap blanket while working from home so I don’t have to run the heat constantly in the whole house all day.” Another customer said she, too, can bare the cold weather better because of this cozy find, sharing, “this keeps me toasty on chilly days and nights.”

If you’re looking for a something to cuddle up in on those cold winter nights, this electric blanket is the perfect pick. Even better? It’s currently on sale for a whopping $102 off thanks to Macy’s current Friends & Family sale. Cash in on this warm and cozy deal while it lasts. I know I am!
