Originally for specialist medical use, weighted blankets have hit the mainstream recently thanks to their magical calming and stress-reducing abilities. Weighted blankets provide gentle, even pressure (often provided by tiny glass beads, sewn into a grid) that soothes the user and can help relieve insomnia. 

You'll find plenty of info and recommendations in our best weighted blanket guide, and the good news is that there are some major price drops on our top-ranking models amongst this year's best Black Friday deals. Our picks from Simba, Silentnight and Emma are all 39% or more off, and they're all the cheapest they've ever been – by some way. 

If you're here because you have trouble sleeping, we'd also urge you to check out our guide to the Black Friday mattress sales (it's the best time of the year for a bargain).
