If you haven’t tried an anxiety-soothing weighted blanket yet — maybe you thought it would be too expensive or weren’t convinced of its effectiveness — we think we’ve found one that will change your mind. This 15-pound YnM blanket hits our trifecta of approval, with rave reviews from sleep experts, Amazon shoppers, and a discerning Strategist writer. “It conforms well to the curves of your body, so you really feel like you are getting hugged,” says Joe Auer, the founder of sleep-product review site Mattress Clarity, while one Amazon reviewer says she has had “the soundest and best sleep I have ever had in my life” while using the blanket. And our own writer Jenna Milliner-Waddell says, “I couldn’t tell you how long it takes me to fall asleep because I’m actually sleeping instead of having nightly staring contests with my ceiling.” If that’s not enough to convince you, have we mentioned the price? Already a relatively affordable $80, right now it’s on sale for more than half off, or just $39.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
