The holiday season is just around the corner, which means you'll no doubt be searching for the perfect gifts to give to friends, family members and significant others. Instead of spending the next several weeks stressing over which presents to buy which cousins, opt for a simple yet stunning gift that's guaranteed to please: a heated blanket.

Aside from providing year-round comfort to any who need it, heated blankets and throws offer a beautiful addition to any bed, couch or armchair. 

On the fence? Consider the top eight reasons you should be buying heated blankets for your loved ones this Christmas.

1. They're Must-Have Winter Accessories
As the temperatures continue their steady downslide, your friends and family have begun looking for ways to stay warm in the winter. Give them the gift of warmth with a heated blanket, encouraging them to keep it handy during the next several months.

2. Different Patterns are Ideal for All Family Members
Your mother may prefer pristine patterns, but your brother may enjoy a throw that commemorates his favorite NHL team. Have the best of both worlds by picking blankets decorated with different patterns, all of which can be tailored to individual tastes. 

3. Give the Gift of Energy Savings
In addition to providing a wealth of warmth, heated blankets can help you seriously save on utility bills - an ideal gift for your friends who are paying bills for the first time or energy-conscious family members looking to reduce their impact on the environment.

4. Help Friends Decorate Their Homes
When draped over a sofa or simple chair, stylish throws can drastically change the landscape of a room. Pick a patterned throw for friends who are particularly interested in eye-catching decorations.

5. The Perfect Choice for Family Friends
Looking for something sweet and simple to give to your mailman or your child's teacher? This universal choice is sure to please any who open it.

6. High-Quality Gifts Last Through the Seasons
When properly cared for, your heated blanket can last up to five years. 

7. Pick a Practical Gift for Friends
It may be tempting to buy that novelty T-shirt or tantalizingly tacky lawn ornament, but your friends may prefer a gift that can be used every day, instead of just once or not at all.

8. Soft Blankets Are Perfect for Holiday Hangouts
Planning a movie night during the holiday break? Your friends will be grateful for the gift of a Sunbeam® Queen Royal Mink Heated Blanket - just don't get upset if they don't want to share!
