After Years of Struggling With Holiday Shopping, I Finally Found a Gift Everyone Loves
Okay, let me start things off by saying I like giving good gifts. I put effort into shopping, do my research, and I genuinely care about how my presents are received.
The problem is just that as I grow older (and so do my friends and family) finding the right gift gets harder and harder. Adults value quality, and finding something that’s both unique and well built can be a tough needle to thread.
That’s why I was ecstatic last year when I finally stumbled on a gift that’s both universally loved and high quality enough to be a serious present: a weighted Cotton Napper from Bearaby. Not only is it insanely well constructed, but the Instagrammable “chunky-knit” design makes it a crowd pleaser for anyone who’s been seeing the brand all over their social media.
This year, Bearaby’s Cotton Napper has become my ace-in-the-hole for gift giving, so I’m spilling the tea on why I recommend it for all struggling holiday shoppers.
Heavy, Calm and Soothing
Bearabys aren’t normal, run-of-the-mill blankets. They’re luxurious, cozy, knitted weighted blankets that create a sensation called Deep Touch Pressure. The sensation of snuggling under a Bearaby is like a big bear hug, and has a laundry list of positive effects on the body, from reduced anxiety to improved sleep quality.
This means they don’t just warm you up, they’ve also been clinically proven to calm you down. Bearaby recommends a blanket weight around 10% of a person’s body weight, so a 15-20 pound napper should work for most gift recipients.
Oh So Silky Smooth
One of my favorite things about the Bearaby Cotton Napper besides the weight is how soft they are. Committed to quality, Bearaby makes the Napper out of only the best organic cotton, which is chemical, pesticide, and artificial softener-free.
This makes for a blanket that’s not just buttery soft, but it’s soft on the planet too. It’s also great for people with allergies or skin sensitivities.
Those Beautiful Links
Okay I won’t lie here, this might actually be the first thing that turned me on to Bearaby. My girlfriend had been seeing all of her friends posting pics online under the same “cute chunky blanket” and it was her exclamation of jealousy that first led me to give one as a gift.
Bearaby’s signature knitted look is very visually appealing. It’s the kind of blanket that looks even better than it feels—adding a pop of color and a unique design element to a bedroom or living room. With 6 colors to choose from, the Bearaby Cotton Napper can rock a look for tastes all across the spectrum, from cool earth tones to “evening rose” pink.
The Gift That Keeps On Giving
The best thing about giving a weighted blanket is that you’re in essence giving the gift of better sleep. Unlike most presents which fade over time or end up in a landfill, this is one gift that they’ll be reaching for all winter long.
For anyone shopping for their wife, husband, significant other or parent, I cannot recommend a better holiday gift. It’s perfect for the winter cold weather (but breathable enough for year-round use), it lasts forever, and it truly just looks gorgeous in any home.
Bearaby has so many weight and color options, it’s easy to shop for any person on your list. I love my 20-pound Cotton Napper in Midnight Blue, but you can’t go wrong with any color or size. I can’t tell you the number of pics I’ve been sent from people showing off how good their Bearaby looks in their bed setup.
If you want a gift that keeps on giving the whole year, give a Bearaby. Just make sure you don’t wait until they’re all gone!
