Whether you're cuddled up on the couch watching TV or tucked into bed going to sleep, having the right blanket makes all the difference when it comes to your coziness factor. Amazon is full of great options, but it can be hard to narrow them down. To help you out, I've researched tons of choices to find the best blankets on Amazon.
Of course, the
best blanket for your home will largely depend on where and how you plan to use it. If you want something strictly for your bed, there are options below that come in twin, full, queen, and king sizes. Few things are cozier than a big fluffy duvet, but for bedding minimalists, there are thinner blankets made with soft materials like cotton and polyester.
If you are looking for a blanket that will mostly live on your couch, there are a range of styles to choose from, like a faux-fur throw with a luxurious sherpa lining or a puffy camping blanket that’s beautiful enough to reside in your living room. And there are also the more niche categories, like weighted blankets that can up your relaxation level and wearable blankets that you pretty much never need to take off.
Check out my list below of the
best blankets on Amazon to find the right option for you. 1 This Popular Faux Fur Blanket With 2 Cozy Sides What's great about it: If you're looking for something cozy and downright luxurious to curl up with, this soft throw blanket is the perfect couch-side companion. Lightweight and free of excess bulk, it offers medium warmth, so it's not too hot or too cold — but just right. The silky faux fur blanket is is made from smooth microfiber polyester, and it’s shed-resistant and machine-washable for no-hassle upkeep. It boasts a 4.7-star overall rating after more than 4,000 reviews, making this a bona fide fan-favorite. Editor’s take: “This blanket is one of the coziest additions I’ve made to my couch. Both sides are incredibly soft and comfy, yet it has an elegant look that makes me feel much fancier than I actually am.” —Danielle Kraese Available sizes: 5 Available colors: 19 2 A Weighted Blanket That’s Editor-Approved What's great about it: Whether you deal with insomnia, feelings of sadness or stress, or simply enjoy the calming effect of a high-quality weighted blanket, this one is an excellent option. Like all weighted blankets, it provides deep-touch stimulation and the sensation of being hugged, which may help provide a wealth of physical and emotional benefits. Made from breathable cotton, it’s soft to the touch and filled with hypoallergenic polyester padding and odorless glass beads. The quilted construction keeps everything in place, so you don’t have to worry about repositioning in the night. With nearly 20,000 perfect five-star ratings, it's specifically designed for adults and offered in a range of weights, from 5 to 30 pounds. The brand recommends choosing the option that's roughly 6 to 10% of your own weight. Editor’s take: “I've had my ZonLi weighted blanket for years and I love it. It's made with fine glass beads that don't make any noise when I move the blanket around, and its exterior is 100% cotton that's soft and super comfortable.” —Amy Biggart Available sizes and weights: 12 Available colors: 6 3 A Lightweight Cotton Blanket That’s Perfect For Hot Summer Nights What’s great about it: This ultra-lightweight cotton blanket — which has a 4.6-star overall rating after 23,000 reviews on Amazon — makes a fantastic choice for hot summer nights. The fabric is lightweight and breathable, making it a fantastic pick if you want the comfort of a blanket, but worry about heating up overnight. It’s slightly oversized to allow for the natural shrinkage of cotton over time, and the dobby weave adds a cozy touch. Best of all, the knit blanket is available in nine versatile colors, like gray, plum, and sage green. One reviewer wrote: “This blanket is the best. I use it over my flat sheet and it keeps me warm but not hot. If I get cold I simply pull up my quilt. It’s not heavy, but still makes me feel like I have a blanket on me, to give me that comfy feeling. I’ll be ordering more. Definitely worth the price.” Available sizes: Throw, Twin, Queen, King Available colors: 9 4 This Splurge-Worthy Weighted Blanket That’s Made For Hot Sleepers What’s great about it: If you’re a fan of weighted blankets and don’t mind splurging a little, this chunky hand-knit blanket is worth it. Designed with hot sleepers in mind, the open-knit, filler-free design offers plenty of breathability, so while you’re getting all the benefits of a weighted blanket, you’ll still stay cool and comfortable. Made from 100% cotton, it comes in three different size and weight combos, and is offered in three elegant, understated colors that feel just a little more upmarket than you standard weighted blanket. Editor’s take: “I’ve been a fan of weighted blankets for a few years, so I jumped at the chance to try this chunky-knit version. It offers the same soothing feel of other weighted options, but it’s significantly more breathable. Just as important (in my opinion), the oversized knit pattern is a great design statement, making this blanket so much more than just a utilitarian pick.” —Anna Anderson Available sizes: 3 Available colors: 3 5 A Down-Alternative Comforter That’s Soft & Fluffy What's great about it: With thousands of reviews and a 4.7-star overall rating , this down-alternative comforter is well-loved on Amazon thanks to it’s design, which is soft and cozy without being overly bulky. It has all of the benefits of real goose down — it’s warm, lightweight, and plush — without the hefty price tag. The fluffy microfiber filling mimics the weight and feel of down, while the box stitching works to keep everything securely in place, so you don’t have to re-fluff in the middle of the night. It's hypoallergenic and machine-washable (just note that it may take two dryer cycles to get it completely dry), and the four corner loops make it easy to add a duvet cover of your choice. One reviewer wrote: “I have always been a fan of down comforters but my husband is allergic to feathers so it is a struggle to find alt. Comforters with the same "puff" quality. This comforter is so cozy, like sleeping in a cloud. I got the California king oversized comforter. I only slept with it one night and it snowed last night.. I was toasty all night. The perfect nights sleep..and such a good quality!! I would have paid more for this.” Available sizes: Twin/Twin XL, Full/Queen, Queen-Oversized, King-Oversized, California King Available colors: 1 6 This Extremely Cozy Sherpa Throw That Comes In 34 Colors & Patterns What’s great about it: If you're seeking a blanket that’s the definition of soft and plush, look no further than this highly rated micro-mink sherpa blanket. The dual-sided polyester blanket features cozy sherpa on one side, and a velvety smooth surface on the other. It offers a decent amount of weightiness — so ideal for colder seasons or cuddling up on the couch — and the wrinkle-resistant fabric is good at warding off lint and pet hair. Perhaps most impressive: It comes in a wide range of colors and prints, so you can choose an option that suits your style and space perfectly. One reviewer wrote: “This blanket was exactly what I was looking for. A plush blanket that I could use in place of a comforter that could keep me just as warm. The Queen size fits generously over the edges of a queen mattress. The velvet side is very soft and smooth. The other side, which looks and feels like sherpa, is so soft, fluffy and cuddly. I love to snuggle with this blanket after a long day of work etc.” Available sizes: Throw, Twin, Full/Queen, King Available colors and styles: 34 7 A Luxurious Goose-Down Comforter With 600 Fill Power What’s great about it: For folks who love the unique comfort of a down blanket, this lightweight comforter is just the ticket.

What’s more, the material is super soft and feels amazing against your skin. One reviewer wrote: “I LOVE this blanket! It is so soft and warm, but it is heavy. It has a separate zone for your feet so you can warm your feet but not overheat.

I normally require an electric heated blanket in air conditioned environments but with this blanket I can ditch the cord! Colors are as bright as in the pictures.

One reviewer wrote: “I just returned from a month long trip to Chile and used this blanket for the first time...and I can't believe I have been travelling without it! The color blue was perfect, the soft feel is awesome, you take your seat in plane, open the zipper throw over your neck, and voila! I filled it prior to boarding with the things I would use the most during flight: Kindle, Sunglasses, tissues, antibacterial wipes, earplugs, Boss headset, lip balm, snack.” Available sizes: 2 Available colors: 2 11 A Wearable Sherpa Blanket With A Cult Following What’s great about it: As an alternative to a traditional throw, this unique sherpa blanket is wearable and boasts a near-perfect 4.8-star overall rating after having racked up 77,000 reviews.

It's perfect!” Available sizes: One size Available colors and styles: 13
