We all have that one friend who can’t stop talking about her gravity blanket—how it makes her feel so calm. How she could never fall asleep before and now drifts off effortlessly every night. How she can’t remember her life before it.
There are many happy sleepers out there singing the praises of weighted blankets.
If you’re late to the party, we’ll explain: weighted blankets, which were first made for therapeutic use, are heavy duvets that magically calm modern humans. They’re widely enjoyed for the gentle soothing pressure they provide—thanks to pounds of imperceptible pellets inside—conjuring a feeling of being super-duper tucked in. Fans report that their anxieties slip away once the crawl under their hefty cover.
Much like thunder shirts help soothe nervous pups during fireworks or big storms, these heavy blankets calm people, providing what feels like a comforting hug.
The thing is, this hug can cost ya. Weighted blankets can run upwards of $200. But today—for Prime Day—Amazon is offering a sale on the YnM Weighted Blanket that’s blowing our minds. You can get one for only (drum roll please) $50!
It’s a steal, and best yet, YnM offers a range of weights so you can order the exact correct blanket for your needs. Experts say the ideal weighted blanket for you is about ten percent of your bodyweight.

One enthusiastic reviewer wrote: “I tend to wake up at least 6 times a night and it takes me up to an hour to fall asleep even if I'm tired. I find that when I use the weighted blanket I wake up less often and I fall asleep faster.”
Another customer offered some insight that might bring hope to people with chronic pain. She wrote, “I’d read the great reviews for this and was hopeful it would help increase sleep time and comfort, and wow! Before I received this weighted blanket, according to my Fitbit, I was averaging about 4.5 hours of sleep per night due to pain. My first night with this blanket and I slept over 7 hours!! Same for my second night. This is so comfortable and comforting. I’m recommending this to everyone I know!”
Sweet dreams. Maybe you should set two alarms.
