'Tis the season for brewing your favorite tea and cozying up with something warm and fuzzy. It's cold outside and these bones ain't gonna warm themselves, ya know? The minds behind the eco-friendly weighted blanket Reviv clearly understand the importance of reducing stress and getting a good night's sleep.
Currently funding on Kickstarter, the blanket has over 3,000 backers and has raised almost $600,000 at press time. And it's no wonder they're so popular; citing the various scientific benefits of snuggling up with a weighted blanket, the Reviv designers say their product can assist with lowering blood pressure and increasing relaxation. And if you find yourself becoming increasingly attached to your blanket a la Linus van Pelt, fret not—it is thermoregulated and hypoallergenic, which makes it perfect for year-round use.

The Reviv comes in five weight options—ranging from 8 to 25 pounds, which should total about 10 percent of your body weight for the best results—as well as five color options. Each blanket comes with a removable washable cover.
The Reviv owes its "luxurious" silky softness to the eco-friendly bamboo fabric, which is a natural fiber made from the plant's wood pulp, sourced from sustainable bamboo farms, as its Kickstarter page explains.
