I’m a fan of weighted blankets – they really do seem to have a calming effect – but the majority of them are boring plain colours or cartoony patterns. Hurray for Aden + Anais for launching three stylish designs – the cobalt blue Whale Watching, soft grey Dream Forest and pastel pink Ophelia. Ideal for soothing anxious toddlers moving from a cot to a bed, the £85 blankets contain hypoallergenic, non-toxic weighted micro-glass beads secured in A + A’s super-soft cotton and can help children fall asleep more easily and stay asleep for longer. What’s not to love? Snuggling under a weighted blanket is a bit like getting a hug – and, let’s face it, we’ve all missed out on a few of those lately.
