Winter has come and our blankets are out! But with the dipping temperatures, your average blanket and an electric heater may not be enough. So, we surfed Amazon (where else!) and found the best electric blanks you could shop for based on their ratings.
5 Top-Rated Electric Blankets To Buy On Amazon For The Cold Wave
Expressions Fabric Electric Bed Warmer
The brand Expressions is all about “making life comfortable”. And to do just that, they carry a range of electric bed warmers and heating pads. This electric bed warmer is ideal for a double bed and can be easily laid over the mattress to make the bed cosy enough to slip into on a chilly night. The best bit? Expressions designs their blankets to consume low energy (no high electricity bills). You’ll find a range of colours to choose from (we loved this mauve one!), and it comes with a year’s warranty.

An under-blanket just like the others, Home Elite has earned a name in the electric blanket market. We love this one because it’s made with microfibres, which makes it a soft affair. It has two heat settings and claims to cut up to 90 per cent of your electricity bills. Its one-year manufacturer warranty is an added advantage, apart from its safety features, which make it shockproof and waterproof.
