Whether the winter months have you piling on the layers, or you feel cold pretty much all the time due to a pre-existing condition, having a heated throw blanket on hand can help you feel comfortable and cozy.
These come in all different shapes and sizes, and can be used for everything from preheating your bed to keeping your hands and feet toasty all day long. Here are eight of our favorites!
Serta Heated Electric Honeycomb Faux Fur Throw
Serta’s buttery-soft heated throw blanket is nothing short of an essential wintertime layer. Its short-pile underside is silky smooth, while the nubby outer texture feels as decadent as it looks. Available in sandy beige or light gray, its controller has five heat settings and shuts off after 3 hours. Reviewers note that the blanket is quite thick on its own and is perfectly warm without even having to switch it on!
Sunbeam Heated Throw Blanket
One side is silky, the other side is sherpa, so any way you want to cuddle with this heated throw blanket is a win! This plush pick from Sunbeam is equipped with three different heat settings, and not only is it super cozy, but it’s conveniently machine-washable as well. It’s available in three other colors, too.
Beautyrest Ultra Soft Sherpa Electric Wrap Blanket
This velvety heated throw blanket envelopes you in a plush embrace, whether you’re trying to thaw out in your living room or in a freezing-cold office. It’s equipped with arm holes and is just the right size to be worn as a shawl. It features four heat-level settings and a 2-hour auto-off feature, and also comes in 10 different patterns.
ProAller Electric Heated Foot Warmer
If a regular heated throw blanket simply sounds too hot, this toasty little pocket might be just the thing you need. Use it to warm up your feet or hands, or even as a soothing compress for sore muscles or cramps. It has three heat levels and shuts off automatically after 2 hours of use.
Car Cozy 12-Volt Heated Travel Blanket
How smart is this? This polyester-fleece throw blanket plugs into your car’s 12-volt outlet (i.e., the cigarette lighter) to keep you, your passenger, or even your pet warm and toasty while your vehicle takes its time heating up. It runs for 30 or 45 minutes and then automatically shuts off, so it won’t drain your car battery.
