Electric Blankets Make Great Gifts!

On a cold winter’s night there’s nothing nicer than snuggling up in a luxury electric blanket.  You can use a heated blanket on your bed, or choose a faux fur option and curl up with it on the sofa.  There are even heated cushions and neck/back wraps to choose.  What better way to treat yourself – or why not buy as a gift for a friend or loved one?

Electric blankets make great gifts for both male and female friends or relatives and they will be appreciated from year to year. With prices starting from just £35, they make a lovely treat without breaking the bank.

To help you choose, here’s our handy guide to everything you need to know about electric blankets.

What different types of electric blanket are there?
There’s lots of choice when it comes to electric blankets.

Heated underblankets should be placed on your mattress.  Try the Dreamland Heated Underblanket or the Dreamland Heated Mattress Cover.  There are also soft fleece mattress cover options which are ultra-soft for a good night’s sleep.

Heated overblankets should be placed over your duvet.  Try the Dreamland Heated Overblanket.

Or for all-out cosiness, you may like to try a heated duvet.

Alternatively, heated throws are ideal for when you want to be cosy on the sofa.  Try the Dreamland Relaxwell Luxury Heated Throw and team it with a matching heated pillow – so luxurious!

 

How do electric blankets work?
You simply plug them in at the nearest socket, select the required heat setting and that’s it.  Most electric blankets take about 15 minutes to get to the required temperature, though heated throws take around 5 minutes.

What happens if I fall asleep with the blanket switched on?
You’ll need to read the label and instructions for the specific blanket your choose, but most can be left on all night if you don’t want to switch off before you go to sleep.  The electric blanket products we sell are all suitable for all-night use and will respond to your body heat to maintain your chosen temperature.

How much do they cost to run?
Most electric blankets cost very little to run.  For example, the Dreamland Heated Over Blanket and Relaxwell Heated Throw cost about 1p for three hours of use.

How do you clean electric blankets?
Most of the electric blanket products we sell are washing machine and tumble dryer friendly.  However, cleaning instructions vary from product to product, so you’ll need to check the label.
