This Strategist-Recommended Weighted Blanket Is the Cheapest We’ve Ever Seen It

Weighted blankets are often on sale (although the quality of the discount varies) — but seldom are they as cheap as our deal of the day today. We first featured the Buzio in January this year, when we scoured Amazon for the best-rated weighted blankets in all categories. Today, it’s a lightning deal on Amazon, and 69 percent off (£55, down from £180).

The Buzio is particularly popular with buyers who have sensory processing issues or sleep disorders. One reviewer explains that, before purchasing the blanket, he had worked his way through a laundry list of products and methods to beat insomnia. Though it’s expensive, he writes, the Buzio blanket improved his sleep to the extent that he’d happily pay twice the price again. Another reviewer, who experiences panic attacks, recommends folding up the blanket and placing it on your torso or thighs to help with anxious, unsettled feelings.

Note: It’s recommended to choose a weighted blanket that’s around 7 to 12 percent of your body weight. For example, someone who weighs 60 kilograms could use any blanket between 4.2 and 7.2 kilograms.
