The month of love continues, and with many of the kids being home for President’s week/mid-winter recess, let’s talk about love of home and wrapping yourself in love.
One of favorite things to do at home is to wrap myself in a blanket – cotton, cashmere, wool, I’m an equal opportunity wrapper. The blanket almost becomes a shield, warding off undesired sights and sounds. #momtruth
“Wait, what did you do or say? Sorry I’m in my cozy cocoon.”
In fact, I love cozy throws so much, I’ve been known to hoard them.
My excuse is that each blanket has it’s own purpose – one for the bedroom, one when I want to sleep on the coach, one when I want to wrap my legs while working in the office, one with a silly pattern just because, one for drinking tea in uber tranquility …
Okay, maybe I do have a hoarding problem, when it comes to blankets.
For the purposes of this post, I’m sharing my 5 favorite cozy throws to enjoy before or after a long day of hustling like a mom. Okay, fine, you can share them with the rest of the family.
5 Ultra Cozy Throws to Wrap Yourself in Love
Cozy Throws: Verloop Knit Throw
Super fun, super silly and super special, Verloop knits the more plaful blankets and corresponding pillows.
If you want to be extra silly with the kids, get matching Verloop knit hats, and pretending like your having an in-door ski and snow party. But, instead of hitting the slopes, give them two scoops of vanilla ice-cream and decorate your edible snow man with M&M and other candies. ($98)
Cozy Throws: Williams Sonoma Cashmere & Wool Equestrian Throw
I spotted this throw at a press event, back in November, when Williams Sonoma Home was opening their first store in Manhattan. It was love at first touch. When we move to Westchester, this spring, I’m getting different versions of this throw for the guest room, my office and the family room! It’s worth every single penny. ($399)
Cozy Throws: JCPenney 2-Pack Cotton Blanket
Two great cotton blankets, at one sweat price. They are currently on sale for $42, for both.
These are great to keep outside when the days are warm, but the nights are still a bit chilly. When we move, I’m planning to get three sets in the same color family, to give out to guests lingering after a pool-party that might morph into a late-night re-BBQ party! ($42)
Cozy Throws: Sferra Celine Blanket
The first time I heard the name Sferra, was during my stay at Viceroy St. Lucia.
The bedding was so amazing, I placed an order for one set of sheets, pillows and pillow covers. A few months later when our eldest daughter, Ilana, arrived, I was gifted the Sferra Celine Blanket. It’s warm, yet light weight, and a little dash of luxury for my princess.
Cozy Throws: Tahari Home Faux Fur and Double-sided Knit Blanket
Over the years, I’ve gifted more blankets than you can image – and not just to myself!
HomeGoods and TJMaxx are a great source for Tahari Home Knit, Faux Fur, or – my personal fav – double sided fur/knit blankets. At under $50, sometimes even under $30, you can’t go wrong with this home find.
