Is there anything better than a warm bed? We think not. Burrito-ing yourself under a mountain of duvets is one way to stay warm during the cold months, but another, much easier way (ever tried to make a bed with five duvets?) is with an electric blanket. Yeah, like the one your grandma uses. She didn’t make it this far without picking up a few tricks, including using a blanket that heats up.

Electric blankets are a great way to get a cozy night’s sleep, whether they are laid on top of you or under your sheets (ooooo decadent!) They are also a much more economical alternative to turning up the heat in your home every night. Warding off a cold or treating sore muscles or arthritis? Throw your electric blanket around your neck and make it a cape, because you are now you’re own hero.

Check out four electric blankets that will keep you cozy all night long.
