Wrap up some warmth

This year, give the gift of cozy. Why is a blanket the perfect gift for anyone? You know it will fit. Grown-ups will cuddle with it. Kids will use it to build forts. Families can use it for picnics. Best of all, it gets softer and more lovable with time. The only question is — what kind of blanket to get? Glad you asked. Here are this year's best blanket gifts.

Sweater blankets

Have you noticed that sweaters are starting to look more like blankets and blankets like sweaters? We say bring on the sweater/blanket convergence! Surprise your mom, mother-in-law, sister, aunt or daughter with her own personal sweater blankie to cuddle up with this winter. Buy a chunky cable-knit throw, or if you have mad sewing skills, go ahead and upcycle old wool sweaters into a patchwork blanket that will be cherished for years to come.

Faux fur blankets

Gifting someone who appreciates a little luxury? A faux fur blanket is the perfect choice. Fluffy and decadent, faux fur blankets look equally at home draped over a chair or ottoman or gracing the foot of an elegant bed. There's just something so decadent about luxuriating in the plushness of a rich faux fur throw. Mmm... the thought of such sumptuousness is putting us in the mood for a nap.

Sweatshirt blankets

What if you could cuddle your entire body in your favorite sweatshirt without scrunching up your knees to your chin? With a sweatshirt blanket this cozy fantasy can be a reality. Made from the same soft snuggly material as a sweatshirt, these blankets are perfect for curling up on the couch or layering on your bed. From kids to coeds, we can't think of anyone who wouldn't love receiving a sweatshirt blanket.

Wearable blankets

What about a wearable blanket — you know, the grow-up size version of a swaddling blanket with sleeves? Go ahead and laugh — but if you think we're kidding, you've probably never tried one yourself. If you know someone who's always cold, or who likes to spend a lot of time curled up on the couch, a wearable blanket is a comical gift with serious comfort.

Stadium blankets

Looking for a gift for the die-hard sports fan? A stadium blanket is an excellent choice. Waterproof on one side and designed for easy transport, stadium blankets make it easy to enjoy an outdoor game even when the weather turns ugly. Stadium blankets are also perfect for a picnic — even if the ground is soggy, it will keep your derriere nice and dry!
