Blankets are not only great in winter - there is a blanket to suit every season. Seasonal events all through the year might require a blanket - for example, watching fireworks on fourth July, snuggling up at home with the family at Thanksgiving. Here are all the best blankets, sorted by seasons.
The best blankets for winter might be those that are especially warm and cosy. There is nothing nicer than coming home from the cold on a winters evening, and snuggling up on the sofa with a cup of hot chocolate and a cosy blanket. Hugme blankets are great for this; their specially designed sleeves and roll-neck make them so cosy, but also allow you to move around your home with ease and comfort. Faux fur throws are very warm and snug and can also really improve the look of a sofa. The long fibres of the faux fur really hold onto warmth and create a wonderfully soft texture.
For spring, there is nothing better than a picnic. Special waterproof based picnic blankets are ideal. Their nylon under sheet makes them perfect for the slightly unpredictable weather of spring. Also, because these blankets fold so small and include their own attached handle, hey are so easy to set up and tidy away and can easily be kept in a car at all times. For spring BBQ's can sometimes go on into the evening. In some places, it can become a little chilly once the sun begins to set. A fleece blanket is the perfect solution to this; lightweight, easy to carry, but warm enough to protect against an evening chill.
Summer is a time for camping trips. Again, nylon coated picnic blankets are ideal for this. As well as protecting against damp conditions, the close weave of the fabric is ideal for dust, sand and grass clippings. This blanket would be perfect for trips to the beach - a quick shake will remove most sand, so there will be no more sand in the car or house for weeks to come after the trip. Use this blanket as a great place to sit whilst watching fourth July fireworks.
Autumn is a time when blankets of all kinds are needed - usually still warm enough for BBQ's and Halloween a great call for a garden party; a picnic blanket bought in summer for a camping trip will prove useful once again. Parents who are with their kids Trick or Treating on Halloween might want to carry a blanket along with them in case the weather becomes colder later into the evening. A light cotton blanket would be ideal for this, as it fits easily into a medium sized handbag and will be light enough to carry whilst walking around your neighbourhood.
So, as you can see, many blankets will prove themselves useful all through the year - making them a great (but inexpensive) investment for the comfort of yourself and your family. Buy a blanket now and find yourself returning to it again and again.
