Weighted blankets are extremely popular right now, especially among folks who struggle to get a good night’s rest. This type of blanket, which is filled with glass beads, evenly distributes pressure around the body and can deliver a sensation that’s similar to being swaddled or receiving a big bear hug. If you’re wondering whether this kind of product lives up to the hype and have been waiting for the right time to give it a go, you’re in luck. Gravity, one of the most well-known makers of weighted blankets, is having a special holiday sale right now that you don’t want to miss.

For a limited time, the retailer is offering a buy one, get one free deal, so when you purchase one of their fan-favorite items—including blankets, sleep masks, and robes—and use the promotional code “BOGOFREE” at checkout, you’ll get a second item of equal or lesser value for free. This is pretty huge, as you could end up saving hundreds, depending on which items you choose. You can even mix and match select products, so for example, you could grab a weighted flannel sherpa throw blanket ($120) and get a weighted travel pillow (usually $50) for free, thanks to this Gravity deal.

If you haven’t tried it yet, the Gravity weighted blanket is one of the must-grab items of this holiday sale. The cozy pick has a 4.4-star rating on the site and is available in 15-, 20-, 25-, and 35-pound options, as well as seven colors: gray, white, navy, oat (which looks like a blush hue), teal, plum, and gold. Prices range from $250 to $300 depending on the size, but if you purchase one for yourself and a second one for a friend in the exact same size, you could save up to $300.

Each classic Gravity weighted blanket is encased in a micro-fleece duvet cover and was made using precise gridded stitching, which means the glass beads should be uniformly distributed around the blanket. When choosing which weight you want, the brand recommends one that’s around 10 percent of your body weight. For example, if you weigh 180 pounds, the brand suggests getting the 20-pound blanket.

“This has changed my sleeping habits completely. I feel held nightly, secure [and] safe,” one customer raved about the Gravity weighted blanket. Another shopper, who described the blanket as “one of the best purchases I’ve ever made,” claimed it made a significant difference on their sleeping habits. “I always wake up multiple times a night for various reasons and always have trouble going back to sleep. This blanket literally puts me back to sleep. I love it,” they added.

Currently, you can save 20 percent on all Gravity items, including its fan-favorite blankets, sleep masks, and robes. The clearance section also lets you get bigger discounts on other popular products, including single duvet covers, which are now 40 percent off, and the Gravity Ice Hybrid Mattress, which is discounted by 30 percent. Not only that, but first-time subscribers who sign up for the brand’s text and email messages via a pop-up box can get a custom code that will take another 15 percent off at checkout, on top of the sale.

Head on over to Gravity to shop this BOGO deal while the offer is still good. And while you’re at it, you may want to check out the sale section for even deeper discounts on select cooling blankets, duvet covers, and more.
