A throw blanket may be the best gift no matter who the recipient is. It feels like a splurge, but in reality throw blankets are very useful. They can also be quite lovely to look at.

If you’re stumped about what to get someone on your gift list here are a few reasons why a throw blanket is the perfect idea.

Extreme Comfort

There’s nothing quite as comfortable as snuggling up on the couch with a cozy throw blanket. And who doesn’t like extreme comfort? Not a single person is going to turn down a plush throw blanket on a cool winter evening.


If you’ve ever tried to buy someone clothes or shoes you know how daunting it is to try to figure out what will fit. Too small and it’s useless. Too large and there could be some awkwardness after the gift is opened. Throw blankets come in a variety of sizes, but generally speaking, they are one-size-fits-all.


Few things in a home are as versatile as a throw blanket. It can keep you warm, serve as a comfy playmat, become part of the decor, cover a blemish on a piece of furniture – the list goes on.

Style and Function in One

Throw blankets aren’t just a multi-purpose functional item. They are also an amazing way to add personal style to any room. Want to add a little pizazz to your couch? Drape a throw blanket over the backrest. Need to dress up your bedding without investing in a new comforter set. Add a folded throw blanket to the foot. Trying to add intrigue to a bare chair? Drape a throw blanket over the armrest.

A throw blanket adds more than a pop of color. It also adds texture, which is more important to interior design than most people realize. There are so many options out there, you’re sure to find a throw blanket that fits a person’s home decor style whether it’s uber-modern or traditional rustic Texan.
