There's not much more comforting than snuggling up under a cosy blanket. Toasty, soft and warm, they're the ultimate winter home accessory - ideal for sitting on the couch, having over your bed, or even draping over you as you work from home.
Here are some of our favourites to keep you warm all winter:
Weighted blankets have risen in popularity over the past couple of years. They're touted as being great for encouraging healthy sleep habits, and can benefit people who are feeling anxious or stressed.
The pressure from the extra weight mimics a therapeutic technique called deep pressure stimulation, which is usually done with the hands to relax the nervous system, and help relieve pain, boost mood and decrease anxiety.
In a weighted blanket, this pressure comes from glass beads or weighted discs. When you're buying a weighted blanket, look for one that is five to 10 per cent of your body weight.
Filled with glass beads, this is made with 5 plush layers and ultra-soft fabric. It comes in a range of weights, and two colour; pink and charcoal. While you're at Adairs, you can also pick up a Weighted Eye Mask, $34.99, and kids weighted blankets from $83.99, which are great for helping children feel calm and comforted.
This very reasonably priced blanket is designed to conform to your body shape so it moves with you while you're asleep. It's ultra-soft and breathable, is made from 100% premium microfibres and has five layers to ensure warmth and comfort.
Available in a lovely aqua colour, this also comes in three different weights. It has a soft brushed cotton cover, and is filled with wadding and glass beads. Make sure you handwash it.
Getting into an already warm bed is one of winter's little pleasures. Today's electric blankets are designed to be super safe, with switches that turn off automatically after a certain amount of time.
They're also washable and usually have different controls so on double beds each person can choose their ideal temperature.
This has six heat settings for both your upper and lower body, as well as both sides of the bed. It's made from antibacterial treated polyester, and has an LCD Screen that illuminates when programming settings, and then dims when set.
This is the only electric blanket that has a quilted top layer for extra comfort and support. It has a five minute fast heat up mode, and heating wires concentrated at the base of the blanket to deliver extra heat around your feet. Toasty.
Electric blankets go under the sheets on your bed, while heated blankets or throws are designed to be portable, so you can move them around your house easily - from your desk, to the couch, to your bed.
This soft velvety throw is a double-insulated electric blanket. It can be opened up to be washed and dried easily. It has dual function controls and an automatic switch off.
With nine heat settings, this gorgeous soft blanket is super soft. It looks great, is machine washable and has safety mechanisms to stop it overheating.
If you're after a wearable blanket this winter, then you can't go past The Oodie. A hooded blanket that's made from a flannel fleece exterior and sherpa fleece interior, it's the ultimate portable blanket that will keep you warm all day long.
If you really want to up your cosy game, buy one of their bundles which includes a weighted blanket too. Desrcribed as a 'big hug' it's made from the same material as the Oodie itself. You'll be so cosy you won't ever want to leave the house.
New to their extensive range, this Elsa print lets you embrace your inner ice queen - while staying warm inside.
