A three-day weekend smack dab in the middle of winter, Presidents’ Day is made for curling up under a blanket and catching up on sleep (and mattress sales — so many mattress sales). Coincidentally, this 20-pound Gravity Blanket, the weighted blanket that started a worldwide craze, is currently cheaper than we’ve ever seen it on Amazon at 20 percent off.
The JLaw-approved blanket is filled with fine-grade glass beads that remain evenly distributed while you sleep (just like the pieces of fruit in a Mary Berry–approved cake), and the exterior duvet is made of a supersoft and comfy micro-fleece. Carla Hall, who included this very blanket in her list of things she can’t live without, describes using one as “like being swaddled.” And isn’t that exactly how you want to feel while riding out the last weeks of winter? If you’re very quick you could even score one in time to give as a Valentine’s Day gift.
