1 / 5
Sijo Home
$156.00
was $195.00

"I love my Sijo comforter that I reviewed some months back. It’s buttery-soft, plush, and warm, but somehow still extremely breathable. It’s made with a eucalyptus material, which feels really soft against the skin, and I’ll probably be pairing this with another duvet cover on chillier nights." — Jasmine Grant, Senior Commerce Editor

2 / 5
Nordstrom
$54.95

"These are great to take into bed with you! I always think of the "Pirates of the Carribean" scene where they put the hot coals in the pot thing at the foot of the bed for Elizabeth when I bring this into bed with me." — Stella Totino, KT Commerce Intern

Brooklinen
$179.10
was $199.00

"I’ve been bundling up in this wool blanket from Brooklinen anytime I’m lounging on the couch. It’s warm, not too bulky, and the colors remind me of fall." — Britt Franklin, Assistant Shopping Editor, Lifestyle

West Elm
$250.00

"The European Flax Duvet is the perfect combination of aesthetic and feel. Its fair-trade and European-grown flax weave is the essence of linen itself without being scratchy or too textured. Because it's woven with all natural fibers, this duvet cover is cozy while still being breathable so my body can regulate when I'm catching my zzz's!" — Stella Totino, KT Commerce Intern

5 / 5
Nuzzie
$189.00
was $249.00

"While the color is a head-turner, the feel of the Nuzzie Knit Weighted Blanket is why I’m keeping it around. Its fabric is as soft as a T-shirt! Not just any T-shirt, but the one you’ve had for years and refuse to get rid of until it falls apart because it’s achieved just the right level of softness. The border of the blanket has a slightly larger weave than the middle, making it ultra-comfortable and easy to maneuver. I spent hours under it while I binged 'Squid Game' on Netflix and never got too warm. The breathable weave of the blanket keeps it continuously cool." — Britt Franklin, Assistant Shopping Editor, Lifestyle
