Although there's never a bad time to snuggle with a throw blanket, the holidays
are ripe with primo nestling and nuzzling opportunities thanks to chilly temps, full bellies, and perhaps a bit of time off for aimless lounging. Unlike regular bedding, throw blankets serve more of a decorative purpose; they're also available in a variety of eco-friendly fabrics like organic cotton, bamboo, Eco Fleece, natural wool, alpaca fiber, and more.
The below throw blankets have put my internal cuddle instincts into overdrive .... maybe they'll do the same for you. And while you're at it, check out these also-cuddle-worthy throw pillows
