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 massage. If you’re wondering whether this kind of product could help you fall asleep 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 big sitewide sale right now.

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.

I feel held nightly, secure [and] safe," one customer writes. Another shopper, who described the blanket as "excellent," praised the feel of it compared to other brands, noting: "The weight distribution is pretty much ideal and not super shifty like some other weighted blankets I've tried. It's also not too heavy. I really appreciate that it has a washable outer cover. I like it so much that we're going to order another one for my husband's side of the bed."
