5 Reasons You NEED a Jumbo Blanket this Winter

It’s the time of year when you’re more likely to find yourself watching Netflix, drinking hot chocolate, and staying in instead of hitting the town. A blanket is one of the first things we think of when winter comes. Keeping yourself warm with a blanket in the cold season is not just about looking good, it’s about staying safe and preventing your body from losing heat. 
The frigid weather makes our skin dry, itchy, and red, leaving us no choice but to cover ourselves in layers of clothing to protect us from that chilly air. However, this doesn’t mean you should sacrifice your style while keeping warm; instead, you need a big blanket this winter.
When it comes to decorating your living room, a blanket is your best friend. Not only do they look great hanging over the couch, they are also a great way to add a pop of color and warmth to any space. Or subsequently, a plain coloured blanket can be used to dial down a busy room. They can be used as a decorative piece or as a covering for a chair or sofa. And the best part? You can easily remove them when you need to vacuum!
You can also use it as an accent by hanging it over your coffee table, end tables, or bookshelves. The possibilities are endless!
When choosing a color, be sure to go with warm tones like yellows and oranges because these colors will instantly brighten up the room.
Yep! That hurts the pocket. With gas and electricity bills on the rise, we have to find ways of keeping ourselves warm that are cost-effective. Cuddling up on the sofa with hot cocoa, wrapped up in the biggest, cosiest blanket you own can make you forget you even owned a heater! Does it get any better than that? So what happens if you need to get up out of your warm and cosy sanctuary? You don’t have to leave it there all by itself to then go and face the cold, icy wraths of the next room, it can come with you! Protecting you every step of the way. Pair it with some fluffy bed socks and you’re set. 
What’s great about your favourite blanket is you can take it anywhere you go! Like we’ve said, even if it’s to the next room, it can come with you! Going to the snow? You can never be sure your chilly destination will provide you with the necessities, better go prepared I say. Do you get uncomfy on planes? The security of your cosy blanket could change all of that! What about camping? Top off your thermals, jacket, and gloves with your fav blanket thrown over you whilst sitting on your camping chair roasting marshmallows by the fire. We all have that one friend or family member we visit whose house should be located in Alaska…. regain your bearings and bring along, you guessed it, your cosy blanket. 
There’s nothing worse than when someone needs to crash at your house but you have no bedding for them. I don’t know about you but I don’t keep an extra, hard-to-store doona laying around taking up all the space in my house and I don’t have to with my blanket. Nicely folded in the cupboard or already prepared and thrown over the couch. Even if it’s an unexpected stay, you will sleep well knowing they are too. 
You can wash a blanket much easier than cleaning your couch. Why pay all the seam cleaning fees, or waste time wiping down the leather when your blanket has done the job for you? Pop it in the wash and up to dry, in no time it’s can be returned to the couch, or any chair and even bedding, protecting them from you and your clumsy ways. Not clumsy like the rest of us but have pets? Pet hair is no longer an issue with a throw, and they’ll most likely be rugging up to that exact spot on the couch you’ve thrown it over. Reverse psychology? I think so!
