The 17 best blankets we reviewed for cozy comfort in 2022
By Victoria Giar
Blankets come in many shapes, sizes and materials so, chances are, you’ll opt for any one that feels the coziest that you can just toss on top of you.
At New York Post Shopping, we tested 25 blankets across different categories and brought you our edit of the 17 best ones to buy in 2022.
Whether you’re on the lookout for the extreme cozy gift this year or want to invest in a practical purchase you’ll use in the colder months, we recommend any of the below options.
How we tested
As I began testing blankets this year, I started by researching top brands and best-selling items from top retailers and bedding brands. For some blankets, I’ve been keeping our testing criteria in mind (which includes material, type, size, fabric and care, among others).
However, some blankets were recently called in for testing and am continuing to continue our research and reviewing method to update this guide. I’ve made sure to test the blankets for at least a week, which led to some great binge-watch sessions and cozy evenings in bed).
Here’s the New York Post Shopping testing criteria when reviewing blankets:
- Material: Of course, no blanket is created equal. In testing blankets, I made sure to be mindful when comparing apples to oranges, and assessed each one — whether weighted or throw — based on its respective category.
- Type: The type of blanket greatly determines its unique features. For instance, a throw blanket that’s lightweight and easy to drape over your couch or bed is preferred, while a heated blanket has unmatched warmth and temperature features.
- Size: When testing, I called in blankets of all shapes and sizes, including full/queen and king. Some blankets have a one-size-fits-all make, so I took that into consideration as well.
- Warmth: Regardless if a blanket costs $20 or $200, warmth is a key factor. If a blanket didn’t keep me all warm and cozy, it didn’t make the cut.
- Care: Though it’s not necessary to wash your blanket (perhaps with one of the best washer and dryer combos we rounded up) every day, I made sure to wash and dry each one to check for shrinkage and any tears.
