Although it really doesn’t seem like it in Ontario today, winter will be here before we know it. If you get cold easily, like my husband or one of my sons, a heated blanket is the perfect way to keep warm, without cranking the heat so that everyone else is sweating. Sears has a great deal at 50% off for this Sunbeam Select Touch premium royal mink heated blanket.
These blankets look so soft and cozy with the mink feel, and they look nice too in great neutral colours like sand, mushroom and walnut. Although I am usually always hot, I remember after surgeries in the hospital getting warm sheets placed on me and how cozy that was. This item would make an amazing gift for anyone.
Forget the heated blankets of yester-year, which you switched on and then off once you got too hot. This blanket has a 30-minute preheat function with an auto off setting, so even if you fall asleep, your blanket will shut off before you wake up in a puddle.
It has a digital LCD back-lit controller, and the larger sizes actually have two controllers! I don’t know if this means you can heat each side differently, but that would be pretty cool. You can also machine wash this blanket, which to me, is totally important.
The prices for the different sizes are:
- Twin – was $199.99, now $99.99
- Double – was $239.99, now $119.99
- Queen – was $259.99, now $129.99
