Weighted blankets can help you sleep with less anxiety, but shopping for new bedding is sometimes a source of stress in and of itself. Shouldn't shopping for weighted blankets come with less anxiety too? We think so! As you prepare to invest in a snuggly weighted blanket, we're here to help with some simple tips and tricks to make your shopping experience easy and stress-free.

Before You Shop, Consider Your Options

There are various weights, styles, and textures of weighted blankets available, and these are all elements to consider before shopping. When selecting a weighted blanket, it’s important to consider where the blanket’s weight actually comes from. Many weighted blankets are loaded with fillers (think glass beads, polyester pellets, or even metal spheres). As you can imagine, these fillers aren’t good for the environment, and they aren’t super comfortable, either – this type of weighted blanket tends to get overly hot and sweaty at night.

If you’re a hot sleeper, you might want to consider a cooling weighted blanket. Our signature knitted Napper design uses heavy fabric to create a calming weight, allowing air to flow through the blanket and keep you at a comfy temp. Since the weight in these blankets comes from layers of fabric, rather than synthetic beads, they’re also a more environmentally-friendly choice.

Whatever style you prefer, we recommend selecting a blanket that weighs about 10% of your body weight. If you’re shopping for your little one, then our Nappling might be a helpful choice, since it comes in 8lb and 6lb options.

We offer free shipping and easy returns on our online purchases, and many other online stores have similar policies to help make the shopping process smoother.

Shopping online also makes it easier to compare products. Most companies list a full description of each item, like the weight of the blanket, the type of material, how it’s made, and how to care for it.

Top benefits of shopping in stores for a weighted blanket

There are many reasons why you might want to buy a weighted blanket in-peron: maybe you want to know how the blanket actually feels, or maybe you’re looking for the perfect weighted blanket gift and you don’t have time to wait for it to ship. For in-person shoppers, you may be wondering where you can buy unique products like weighted blankets. Most chain stores don’t sell weighted blankets, so you’ll want to locate boutiques that sell specialty home goods.

The biggest benefit to shopping in stores is the opportunity to touch and feel each blanket, which might be especially helpful if you have sensitive skin or you’re looking for a specific texture. If you change your mind, it's simple to go back and exchange your blanket for a different style.

In-store shopping can also be a great option if you’re shopping in a hurry. When you purchase in person, you don’t have to wait for shipping and instead can start enjoying the various weighted blanket benefits right away. And if you’re buying a weighted blanket as a gift, in-person shopping will ensure that it arrives on time for the big day.

Wondering where to buy one of our weighted blankets in person? We’ve got you covered! Bearaby blankets are available through our retail partners, Nordstrom, at locations across the US and Canada, so you can experience our hand-knit designs in-person.
