As we approach autumn and winter, the nights will soon start to turn cooler and you may find that you need more than just a duvet to keep you warm and cosy. An electric blanket is a great way of keeping warm on cold nights plus it can also help soothe aches and pains.
The best blanket for you really is subjective as everyone is looking for something different. We have therefore put together a run-down of 5 of the best blankets; each one a winner for different reasons.
Best for students: Cozy Night Single Electric Blanket
The first on our list is the Cozy Night Single Electric Blanket. We have chosen this one especially for all the students about to start or return to university as this is a great, affordable option to keep toasty in student accommodation (where home comforts can be scarce and heating, variable!). The single size is appropriate for most student accommodation plus it won’t take up too much room in the car as you transport your worldly goods there. Best of all, the folks will be reassured that you may be living away but you will be warm because they care about that stuff!
This blanket is priced at £25.99.

Best for allergy sufferers: Beurer Monogram Fitted AllergyFree Double Electric Blanket with Single Control
If you suffer from asthma, have allergies, or are just very sensitive to irritants then this is the electric blanket for you. The Beurer Monogram Fitted AllergyFree Double Electric Blanket with Single Control really is the best blanket for allergy sufferers. Dust mites cause around 45% of all allergies and they are commonly found in most kinds of bedding. This is because of the allergens that exist in their faeces and their remains. The fabric on this blanket is inhospitable to dust mites to live in so good news for those with allergies and, indeed, anyone who doesn’t fancy breathing in dust mite faeces!
This blanket is priced at £59.99.

Best for couples: Dreamland Intelliheat Double Size Dual Controls Harmony Heated Overblanket
As lovely as it is to share a bed with our loved one, the temperature is often a dividing issue. We all regulate heat differently and inevitably that is going to lead to differences of opinion about the temperature of the bed. If you feel the cold, or can’t bear the heat, and your partner feels differently this can be a real issue. The Dreamland Intelliheat Double Size Dual Controls Harmony Heated Overblanket offers a solution to this very common problem. It has dual controls, meaning that you can each choose the perfect temperature for your side of the bed – so no arguments and you both get a great night’s sleep.
This blanket is priced at £83.39.
Best fully fitted electric blanket: Homefront Fully Fitted Double Fleece Electric Blanket
If you want all the benefits of the Dreamland blanket above, but you prefer the feel of a fully fitted electric blanket, you can’t go wrong with the Homefront blanket. It fits snugly to your mattress, with no bumps or creases, and it’s lined with a luxuriously soft fleece. If you like sinking into a thick, cosy bed at the end of the tough day, then make no bones about it – the Homefront fleece electric blanket should be the one you go for. It has dual controls, so it’s made for sharing, and the extra-deep elastic skirt makes fitting a breeze, even if you have a tall mattress.

Best for style: Dreamland Relaxwell Husky Faux Fur Heated Throw
Electric blankets have functionality at their heart with their raison d’etre being to keep you warm in bed. However, some go above and beyond offering you a cosy night’s sleep plus style that can be just as much a part of your bedroom décor as your bedding and curtains. The Dreamland Relaxwell Husky Faux Fur Heated Throw is very much giving you both style and substance with its luxurious faux fur. This blanket is super soft and looks amazing on your bed or even as a throw over the sofa for winter evenings chilling in front of the TV.
This blanket is priced at £97.99.
Best for features: Dreamland 16212 Intelliheat Double Fleece Electric Blanket with Single Control
The temperature in our homes varies constantly, especially once the central heating goes off at night. Some people like an electric blanket with a timer that shuts the heat off after a certain amount of time so that they don’t become too warm but then temperatures can often plummet to their lowest in the early hours and you may find that you wake later because you’re cold. The Dreamland 16212 Intelliheat Double Fleece Electric Blanket with Single Control uses intelliheat technology to ensure that this doesn’t happen. It means that it is able to respond to temperature changes throughout the night – keeping you at your desired heat consistently.
This blanket is priced at £59.99.
So, whatever your priorities for an electric blanket, there’s something for everyone here.
