Bustle and Coveteur are working together to bring you the best mix of the season's hottest releases, shopping tips, and gifting ideas in ways that are both inspirational, and attainable. Check The Holiday Edit channel weekly to see what we're up to.

Nothing says winter quite like a giant knit blanket. Yes, wrapping yourself up in a cozy throw is technically a season-less activity, one that you likely do on the daily on your couch or your bed, but it doesn't feel quite as good until the temperatures have dropped and the holidays start to roll in. Watching a spooky movie with a blanket as your shield? The best. Digesting your Thanksgiving meal while tucked underneath heavy knitted fabric? Arguably therapeutic. Listening to holiday music, draped in your favorite Christmas quilt? I rest my case.

But this winter season, why not overhaul your blanket collection? Trade in your ratty old throw for a chicer, cozier upgrade. There are more options than ever before, thanks to the popularity of crocheting and the hygge movement. Whether you're looking for a chunky knit blanket or a rich cashmere throw, there's one for you and your toasty winter needs. Here are 19 giant blankets to wrap yourself up in until spring.
