This was my old reliable for years. If you’re stumped on a holiday gift to give or a housewarming present to buy, the Sunbeam Heated Blanket is a popular contender. The easy-to-use controller has ten temperature settings and gets toasty fast. I only had to wash it a few times, but it held up well other the years, even with machine drying. The quilted pattern gives it a cozy cabin touch. I had it in the acorn color, but it is available in six hues. You can find it in up to King size.

Best Heated Blanket for Pets: Beurer Heated Dog & Cat Blanket
Heated blankets are brilliant for older pets or fur babies with ailments. I have a senior dog and can tell you this blanket absolutely suits his tired bones.

Beurer’s Heated Dog & Cat Blanket only has four temperatures, so it’ll never be too hot to hurt your fluffy friend. The heat will only stay on for 3 hours, so you needn’t fear of it being too much.
