Weighted blankets are a smart gift to give this Christmas, and one of our favourites has just gone on sale — bringing the price to just under £100. When we investigated the best weighted blankets to gift, the Baloo weighted blanket impressed our reviewers on all fronts: Although it’s filled with tiny glass beads, it’s not noisy, and the weight is evenly distributed. It’s fantastic for hot sleepers as it’s not too thick, and the soft white colour looks crisp and clean when it’s laid out on a bed.

Both the 15- and 20-pound versions of the blanket are £30 off on Amazon. As a guideline, a weighted blanket should weigh in at around 10 percent of the user’s bodyweight in order to provide enough heft without being uncomfortable, but for adults there’s some more wiggle room (around 8 to 12 percent is generally fine).
