Bonus: Cooling Weighted Blanket

Although it's far from lightweight, this cooling weighted blanket is just too good to pass up, which is why it should be your go-to this summer. Instead of cranking up the AC, swap your usual comforter or duvet for this blanket (available in 7, 15, 20, or 25 pounds), and you'll get the best sleep of your life. It uses Coolmax All Season technology to wick moisture away from the body, keeping you cool all night long. Plus, you'll get all the calming benefits of being snuggled up under a weighted blanket, which feels like you're getting a big hug or a deep massage.
