Hot off the heels of summer, my addiction to cozy, snuggly, comfy blankets is flaring up. I’m serious, guys — I absolutely love buying new blankets. 😬 My house has blankets scattered everywhere, and it’s not even that cold yet. But what can I say. I. AM. OBSESSED. My daughter may share in my obsession, too. 😉
I recently received my order of blankets (yup, plural) from Target when they had their 30% off blankets promotion, because why buy just one comfy blanket when you can buy three or four, right?! ☺️
Thankfully, I’m not alone in my intense love for blankets — my team shares in this same strange addiction.
“I, too, have a serious blanket ADDICTION. If there was a rehab for people addicted to blankets, I would be there. They just make my house feel so cozy (even when it’s 90 out!) and make the cutest decor. My husband sometimes complains, but then I see him cuddled up with one and I know he secretly likes my addition.” — Amber
To help you become one with us in our blanket obsession, we’ve rounded up our top FIVE favorite blankets for your snuggling enjoyment. 😍
1. Amazon Bedsure Sherpa Blankets
Smooth and soft on one side, fuzzy and warm on the other — what more could you want from this blanket?! We’ve seen these for as low as $14.39, so not only do you get one of the most comfortable blankets, you get a hot deal, too!
“It literally puts me in a nap trance on Sunday afternoons. So cozy. I’ve washed it several times and it is still super soft. I have the bigger size.” — Michelle
“I agree on the sherpa ones! So comfy, soft, and warm. Everyone always fights over them! They look pretty and hold up well, too!” — Lina
2. Vera Bradley Throw Blankets
This oversized micro-fleece throw comes in 10 different fun patterns. They’re a little pricier, but we’ve seen them marked down as low as $27.56 — such an awesome price for an adorable blanket. These would make great gifts for kids, teens, and young adults!
“Vera Bradley blankets are AWESOME! The ones from the outlet aren’t quite as good as the ones from the main site, but I love them.” — Paige
3. Eddie Bauer Down and Fleece Throws
Take the weight of a comforter and the softness of fleece and combine it into one blanket… that’s what you get with these oversized blankets from Eddie Bauer. It’s another pricey option (retailing full price at $129), but last November we scored them for half off at $64.50! Be on the lookout for another promo like this from Eddie Bauer during the holiday season as these make awesome Christmas gifts!
“One year I bought one of these blankets for my husband, then someone gave me one for Christmas, then EVERYONE had to have one. They are so well made — my husband’s blanket is probably 6 years old!” — Paige
“I love the Eddie Bauer blanket that I got from Collin last year! I take that to outdoor sports ❤️ so warm and cuddly” — Lina
4. Sam’s Club / Costco Blankets
While you’re stocking up on bulk buys at warehouse stores, check out their selection of throw blankets. They’ve been known to carry plush, sherpa, and even discounted Eddie Bauer throws. Their inventory varies but the prices can’t be beaten!
“I’ve seen Costco have some really good blankets on sale for $9.99. They’re typically in-store only, but it’s worth the trip!” — Michelle
“I love the big fuzzy ones from Sam’s club. They’re so snuggly!” — Amber
5. Kohl’s The Big One Blankets
The Big One throw blankets from Kohl’s are the creme-de-la-creme when it comes to blankets. First of all, they’re incredibly soft — you’ll feel instantly cozy the minute you touch it.
Second, they come in a ton of colors and patterns (making our blanket addiction even stronger 😂). Finally, you can regularly find them for as low as $10 when you combine sale prices with promo codes, and we all know Kohl’s frequently has sales. Did we mention these blankets have a 4.7 star rating with over 2,700 reviews?!
“My kids are obsessed with The Big One plush blankets! Actually, my 3.5-year-old son has had his same one since he was a baby. These blankets hold up so well! BUT… he actually chewed all of the corners so much (I don’t know if that is normal, but if it is not, please disregard I mentioned it) that my husband just took him to Kohl’s the other day to pick a new blanket. We’re currently in the process of making the other one disappear!” — Erica
Are you a blanket fanatic like us?
I have a few of the Costco blankets…the key to keeping them soft is NOT using any fabric softener! it puts a film over there already softness. you can use sent beads but no liquid or dryer sheets. I have had mine for years now and I love my sherpa and my big fluffy e tra thick blankets from there
I definitely have a blanket issue! 🙂 It could be worse though, right?? It has gotten to where when my husband and I walk in a store and I simply go to feel a blanket he says takes me by the arm and says “do we really need another blanket?”. My thought is…..well sure! I recently found a crazy cozy blanket for $3.99 at a store called “Ollie’s”. I was able to get it by my husband that time. haha.
I love Ollie’s! Always leave with more than I went in for.😀
Lol!! I love Ollie’s book section. I’ve gotten some great reads there. Also the pillows Lol 🙂
Good to know I’m not the only blanket lover! I ordered some from Target a few months ago when a deal was posted and I looove them!
I’m looking for the weighted blanket, do you have any feed back on them?
Saranomi blankets are the best. Pricey but so worth it!
My sons share my blanket obsession too. TJ Maxx and Marshalls have the best super soft blankets. I take my two boys to the babysitter at 6am and they have to have soft, snuggly blankets.
I do too but no one else in the family aside from my parents.
Collin where is the grey couch from?
