I vividly remember sitting at my desk with my wife draped in a weighted blanket upstairs and writing the headline "Best and last weighted blanket sale of 2018." That was a few weeks ago. The website crashed, the blanket sold out and that really was the last weighted blanket sale of 2018.

The deal that was just posted online right now is actually a Sharper Image model and it won't ship until next week, which means it's a January deal. So technically, I wasn't wrong.

This was hands-down the most popular deal of 2018. It trended everywhere and not a day goes by where I don't receive dozens of requests for another deal.

Here is what you need to know:

Not all weighted blankets are created equal and many of the so-called deals are tied to unsafe products or blankets with a weight distribution that will not actually help you. The no. 1 Sharper Image gravity-weighted blanket I've profiled is doctor-recommended and the most breathable of all weighted blankets available on the market.

For years, weighted blankets have been recommended by doctors and sleep therapists for those living with ADHD, autism, emotional distress and aching bones.

The feeling of a weighted blanket is designed to replicate the sensation of being hugged or held, which is why weighted blankets have been used for years to reduce anxiety in children. Weighted blankets provide what experts call “deep pressure touch stimulation” or DPTS. If you are someone who struggles to fall asleep or stay asleep, a weighted blanket can make a world of difference.
