July 13, 2021
If you’re anything like us, you like to lean into quiet Friday evenings and lazy Sunday afternoons—so you know there isn’t anything better than changing into your pajamas, lighting a heavenly scented candle, turning on a feel-good movie, pouring a glass of red wine, and curling up on the couch with the softest throw blanket.
Kennebunk Bliss Plush Throw
This plush throw comes in a wide variety of colors—from a more neutral ivory to a bold burnt orange—to match a wide range of decor styles. It’s a great value pick, too. Though affordable, it’s soft, sizeable, attractive, and won’t shed.
This Amazon bestseller has over 19,000 reviews with a collective 4.4 stars, because of its generous size (60-by-80 inches!) and soft, fluffy fleece fabric. Drape it over the corner of your bed, so you have something warm to reach for when you catch a chill in the middle of the night.
Bliss Fuzzy Throw
The smooth, velvety exterior of this double-sided throw looks sleek on your couch or bed, and the fuzzy sheepskin interior is just as warm and cozy as your favorite pair of UGGs.
Chunky Knit Blanket
Made of soft merino wool, this hand-knit option makes for a very special gift—for yourself or for your best friend. Though this chunky blanket is made of natural yarn for the ultimate in comfort, it’s felted to prevent shedding or pilling.
100% Cotton Basket Weave Throw
Whether picnicking in your backyard, sitting on your porch, or enjoying an al fresco dinner on a crisp evening, this indoor-outdoor throw is well-equipped to warm your lap or shoulders. Reviewers love it for its comfort factor, but also appreciate how easy it is to clean—just toss it in the washing machine.
Pawsse Waterproof Blanket
What’s even better than a throw blanket? This plush, waterproof, machine washable blanket that you can share with your dog. Plus, drape this over your sofa to help prevent pet hair from sticking to your furniture.
Anchal Patchwork Throw
It should come as no surprise that beloved bedding brand Brooklinen also offers some high-quality blankets and throws, like this cozy and colorful option. It’s part of a limited-edition collaboration with the Anchal Project—a sister-run nonprofit that works with female artisans in India—so each reversible quilt is handcrafted from organic cotton and features the name of the woman who made it.
Personalizable Solid Cashmere Throw
Though decidedly more expensive than other choices on this list, nothing says luxury quite like finely woven 100 percent cashmere. Plus, at 50-by-65 inches, it’s a bit larger than standard throws. For an extra-special touch, add a monogram.
Personalizable Faux Fur Ombre Throws
You’re practically guaranteed to feel warm and fuzzy with this plush faux fur blanket from West Elm. Not only is it almost too soft to believe, but the neutral tones go with nearly any decor, so it will look perfect draped across the end of your bed, the arm of your couch, and just about anywhere else. Even better? It can be personalized with a monogram or name, so it also makes for a great holiday, housewarming, or engagement gift.
Heated Electric Throw Blanket
A heated blanket is nice to have handy on extra cold days (or, when someone in your home is ramping up the A.C.) and this one is a solid choice. It’s more attractive than comparable options, has ultra-thin wires for comfort, three warming settings for maximum efficiency, and a three-hour auto shut-off for safety.
Confetti Throw Blanket
Your fire is roaring, your well-defined couch dent is calling, and you just finished whipping up a batch of hot buttered rum. Cap off the coziness with this confetti-inspired throw from Anthropologie, which is available in three shades—from calming cream to vibrant orange—and features a subtle sprinkling of color and chic braided tassels. Not to mention that it’s machine washable, so it’s super simple to clean.
Woven Art Throw Blanket
Not only is this woven blanket a work of art worthy of a frame, but it’s also the perfect snuggle buddy. It’s crafted from durable, 100% cotton, which provides the perfect amount of warmth, and it measures 50 inches by 60 inches, so it’s big enough for two people to cozy up under.
Soleil Throw Blanket
If the weather drops below 50 degrees, there’s a 99 percent chance you’ll find us wrapped up in this contemporary throw blanket. Inspired by traditional suzani quilt patterns, this striking design includes sun medallions that are meant to radiate positive energy and good vibes—which is something just about everyone could use a little more of.
