Winter is in full force, and trying to fall asleep in a cold bed isn't exactly pleasant. Neither is getting up in the middle of the night to adjust the thermostat. Electric heated blankets make the cozy life just a little bit easier, by keeping your bed warm while helping you save on your heating bill—plus, the controls are within reach if you wake up in need of a temperature adjustment.
These heated blankets—from fleece to micro-plush to sherpa—are some of the most highly-reviewed top sellers on , and comments from happy customers should tell you everything you need to know. We'll let the reviews take it from here...
"I purchased this blanket to warm the bed prior to getting into it. It's been a very cold winter and this makes getting into bed a very warm and fuzzy experience even on the coldest nights. In less than 5 minutes the bed is warm." —
"The first night I used it, when I woke up in the morning I wasn't all tense for the first time in many years. Apparently, I just get a tiny bit cold during the night and my muscles tense up to keep me warm. With the gentle external warmth this blanket creates, I was actually able to relax!" —
"I was looking for a throw to keep my legs warm while sitting at my desk, this is PERFECT for that. I ended up throwing a second one in the cart and I'm glad I did. I put it on top of my queen bed just to take the chill off." —
"This blanket is HEAVEN!! I LOVE IT! I ordered the mushroom color. It's hard to tell but it's almost a camel color. The fabric is so soft and cozy. Love the Preheat setting—doesn't take long to jump into a warm bed. The only problem is...you don't want to get out!" —
"The blanket is lightweight and the unique design of the wiring makes it so you can't feel the wiring like you can on a more conventional electric blanket. The blanket keeps us comfortable all night and the control shuts the blanket off after about 10 hours if one forgets to turn it off—a good safety feature." —
"I bought this for my wife as a Christmas present and she uses it every night lying on a sofa to watch television. To say that she loves it would be a massive understatement. The low setting seems plenty warm for her, though occasionally she has pushed it up to medium." —
"Best heated blanket I have ever purchased by a long shot and I have spent far more for other heated blankets that don't even compare to this! It is so thick, soft and cozy. There is not one recommendation I could make to improve it." —
"HOW DID I LIVE WITHOUT THIS?!?! Fleece is so cozy, and the blanket heats up very quickly. Nice long cords to run from the end of the blanket to the headboard where the controls are. Not too hot with great all over heat. Don’t feel a bunch of wires, just a warm blanket!" —
"The wires within the fabric are very unobtrusive, and the heat is very even. The blanket itself is warm, even without the power on, but the combination of fine adjustment and even heat make this the best electric blanket I have ever had." —
It's not technically a blanket, but it is another top-seller to keep you cozy all night, so we're including it anyway.
"We love, love, love these mattress pads. We now have one on each of four beds in our home, and we have given them as gifts. There are certainly ones that are double the price, but I don't think you need to go that route. These work great." —
