 How to choose the best electric blanket 

With so many electric blankets on the market, how do you choose the right one for you? One method can be buying from a bedding company you already know and trust, such as Silentnight. That said, new brands are arriving on the scene all the time, and they often work hard in terms of quality and value, in order to compete. So while we've included some names on our list that you may not have heard of, don't skip past them, but check out what they have to offer too.

You should also be thinking about the style of blanket you want. Some of the best electric blankets work under your bedsheets, while others are quilts that cover you up, and still others are fleece throws that you can snuggle under at any time of the day. So, think about when you're likely to need an extra blast of heat, and whether you want the option to throw it off if you get too warm.
