I’m betting if I asked whether you could use a good night’s sleep, you’d emphatically answer yesssssssss. It’s winter. It’s 2020. It’s the holiday season. Even in normal times, an anxiety-free night’s sleep can be a bit difficult to come by. But 10 months into a pandemic and two months into the dark, cold days of winter? Yeah, sleep’s not so easy-breezy. That’s where the Gravity Blanket comes in. The OG weighted blanket is proven to help you fall asleep more quickly and promote a deeper, more restful sleep. Named the best classic weighted blanket on our Best List, it’s currently 25 percent off with code HOLIDAY2020, making it perfect for gifting or keeping for yourself.

The Gravity Blanket is a soft, micro-plush duvet cover housing thousands of tiny glass beads that create deep pressure stimulation. Basically, it simulates the feeling of a hug—which we could all use right now—and increases serotonin and melatonin while decreasing the stress hormone cortisol. Precise gridded stitching holds the beads in hundreds of little pockets to ensure equal weight distribution all night long, no matter how much you move. 

Our Real Estate editor, Madeline Bilis, had been skeptical about weighted blankets but was surprised by how calm she felt after trying the Gravity Blanket. “It feels like getting a gentle hug in the best way possible, and it’s also allowed me to consciously decompress after work—a really wonderful gift during stay-at-home orders!” she said.

Currently marked down to $146.25 (normally $195) for the single size and $230 (normally $255) for King/Queen, the Gravity Blanket comes in four weights (15, 20, 25, and 35 pounds), three colors (grey, blue, and white), and features a machine washable plush cover. Gravity Blankets’ limited-time sale also includes other weighted options, like the Z By Gravity Weighted Throw, the Flannel Weighted Blanket (if you want to be super-cozy), the Cooling Blanket (hello, hot sleepers!), and the Modernist x Gravity Cotton Weighted Blanket.
