Cocooned: The 12 Best Electric Blankets to Ward Off Winter
Keeping warm when the thermometer tells you the next ice age is upon us is often a daunting prospect. You can layer until you resemble a bizarre land whale and thaw your cocoa in the microwave every two minutes. You can huddle in front of a radiator or a crackling fire, but for versatility and comfort, a heated blanket makes all the difference. A heated blanket can travel anywhere in your house, and beyond, depending on the style. It uses less energy than heating your entire abode, and unlike hot beverages, it keeps a consistent temperature for a long period of time. If your enthusiasm for snow has cooled but spring thaw remains an elusive concept, you may want to add an electric blanket to your winter arsenal.
