An Aldi Weighted Blanket is due in stores this week!
Let’s face it, life can be stressful. All the obligations of the holidays can compound the problem and push us to the brink.
What do you do to relieve stress? Meditation? A glass of wine? Light your stash of Huntington Home candles?
Move over, bubble bath, there’s a new relaxation tool in town: the weighted blanket.
Aldi Weighted Blanket
Aldi is jumping on the weighted blanket trend this holiday season! When weighted blankets first burst into popularity, many of them were selling for $100 and up.
But leave it to Aldi to make these relaxation tools much more affordable.
This Aldi Weighted Blanket is priced at just $39.99!
Huntington Home Weighted Blanket
This Huntington Home branded weighted blanket measures 48 inches by 72 inches. It weighs 15 pounds.
The blanket selection includes gray, plaid or buffalo check.
These Aldi weighted blankets have a removable cover that is machine washable.
Are you wondering what gives a weighted blanket its weight? In the case of this weighted blanket, and many others, the weight comes from glass beads inside.
Why Use a Weighted Blanket?
Many people report that laying under a weighted blanket provides the feeling of being held or hugged, and for most, this makes you feel more secure and relaxed.
The pressure that the weighted blanket provides is said to help alleviate anxiety and provide more restful sleep.
It has also been suggested that the feeling of these blankets can help people with sensory processing disorders, ADHD, and restless leg syndrome.
Some pets reportedly love weighted blankets, too! Pet owners say they have bought them for their dogs who are afraid of loud noises such as fireworks and thunder.
Weighted Blanket Review
Update! We went ahead and bought the Aldi weighted blanket and are impressed with the quality – the blanket is super soft and has already made a difference in our sleep!
The best feature of this weighted blanket is that the outer cover is removable which allows for easy laundering. We’ve looked at other brands and not all have removable covers (a must-have!).
At 15 pounds, the Aldi weighted blanket is a good weight without being too heavy. It’s suggested that any weighted blanket be NO MORE than 10% of your body weight – this blanket is ideal for anyone over 150 pounds.
You should also take into consideration how heavy anything higher than 15 pounds would be to transport or move around the house– 15 pounds may not seem like much, but there’s a considerable difference between the weight of these blankets and a traditional comforter.

Just A ‘Heads Up.’
I like the Huntington Home products and a weighted blanket reminds me of sleeping under my grandmother’s quilt.
The removable cover is a HUGH Plus.
The blanket is NOT quilted/channeled therefore the beads roll to the outer edges causing unevenly distribution of weight.
This has led me to awaken a little more fully for a toilet run ‘cos the is no such thing as Just tossing back your cover; and upon returning to bed I must redistribution the beads.
I am getting mine, which was a gift, quilted.
Bought the Aldi Huntington blanket last month, love the weight.
Didn’t like the way it bunch up, the outer cover is too soft and silky so it doesn’t stay in place, that make it hard to move, when laying down was going to change the outer cover to a cotton cover unzipped it, but didn’t put it on that night, woke up to something biting me about 6 bits that night. Zipped it back up didn’t change the cover next night no bits, unzipped it again 8 bits. I will be returning it. I’m very upset cause I did like concept.
I purchased this blanket for my grandson and gave it to him as a Christmas gift. It bunched up to one side immediately and he is unable to use it. How can I return this and get my money back?
Bought the 8 lbs children’s blanket because it’s the same size as the adult 15 lb.
Got it for 15 dollars on sale.
It was one the best decisions I’ve made.
It really keeps me warm and doesn’t shift like a standard blanket.
The illusion of having a blanket encompassing one with a little weight is welcome and relaxing.
