It’s cold. It’s dark. It’s best to stay inside as much as possible. Now is the season of JOMO: the joy of missing out. Clear your schedule, put on some telly and really relax – you’ve earned it. Lean into your natural laziness, make like a bear and stay horizontal in the warm until the sun comes out again.
To help you achieve maximum cosiness at this frigid time, we’ve scoured the internet and brought you some of the snuggliest blankets and throws you could ever want.
Some of them are basic, tasteful, even classy; others have Jeff Goldblum’s topless torso printed on them. We’ve got something for everyone, that’s what we’re saying here. Please, go forth and get cuddly.
The only thing better than tartan is more tartan. This blanket is made of recycled wool and other fabrics that would otherwise have made their way into landfill. So that nobody tries to steals your cosy throw, get your name or initials printed on it.
Just saying the description of this blanket out loud makes you 30% more posh. If you’re after a stylish, elegant blanket that’s almost good enough to wear as am accessory, you can’t do better than cranberry merino herringbone.
This is the basic bitch of blankets and we love it. If you’re after something plain and tasteful but deliciously cosy, this could be your best bet. Comes in natural and grey shades.
If you’d like to literally wear your blanket, then please, invest in one that comes with sleeves. It’ll keep you warm while allowing you to move your arms around, enabling such tasks as pointing the television remote and moving snacks towards your face.
If you’re like “Hey! Just show me a classic, plain blanket! Enough with all these embellishments! I like my cosiness to be minimalist!” then here you are. This quilted velvet throw comes in chalk, camel, soft grey, blush pink, dark grey, midnight blue, peacock and sand.
For those of you who require a blanket with Jeff Goldblum’s topless torso printed on it. It’s just like that time there was a bigger-than-life-size Jeff Goldblum statue in London, only smaller and cuddlier.
The only thing better than a plain blanket is a blanket with someone’s pet, face or favourite person on it. This makes a perfect gift, either for yourself or someone you like very much.
Has the colour navy ever done anything wrong? No. It’s the perfect shade. This navy blue flannel fleece throw will spruce up any bed, sofa or lap.
