Weighted Blankets & Accessories

Waking up refreshed every morning starts by sleeping soundly throughout the night, and for many of us, getting the recommended 8 hours of sleep is easier said than done. With a weighted blanket from Bed Bath & Beyond, your once sleepless nights can easily be transformed into peaceful slumbers. True to their name, the blankets are designed to be heavier than the average comforter due to their internal bead or pellet fill, ranging from 5 to 25 lbs. Not only does the additional weight of the blanket provide the extra warmth and comfort you crave during the colder seasons, but it also helps to combat the most common factors that prevent sleep like restlessness and stress.

Weighted Blanket to Reduce Stress

Thanks to busy lifestyles, high-stress levels, and brains that never fully shut off, it’s proven difficult for most people to relax their minds in order to get a beneficial night’s sleep. Imagine how amazing it would be to fall asleep easily without any anxious thoughts about tomorrow’s to-do list or tossing and turning throughout the night. By simply slipping under a weighted blanket from Bed Bath & Beyond, the odds of reducing your stress levels and restlessness are exceptionally greater. The gentle pressure given by the blankets’ evenly distributed weight offers your body the same comfort as a loving hug, a similar experience to a baby being swaddled. With this feeling of calm provided by your weighted blanket, you can finally rest easy without having to count on counting sheep.

Weighted blankets provide your body with deep pressure stimulation while you sleep to elicit the wonderful feeling of being held or hugged, a sensation proven to make you feel secure and further encourage relaxation for sleep. Given that a weighted blanket is designed to be thicker and heavier than a typical comforter or duvet, it’s important to note the configurations of your weighted blanket should be catered to your body, not your bed.  Therefore, when choosing the perfect weighted blanket for you, the recommendation is that the blanket should weigh about 10% of your body weight to ensure a warm, snug feeling rather than a constricting one. You also should be mindful of the size of your weighted blanket from Bed Bath & Beyond.  To guarantee the best results, choose a weighted blanket that is slightly smaller than your bed’s dimensions to prevent any overhang to ensure the blanket’s weight remains evenly distributed. With our wide selection of weighted blankets ranging in weights and sizes, Bed Bath & Beyond has got you covered (literally) for a restful night’s sleep.
