Electric Bedding Makes a Great Gift!


Anyone who has enjoyed the luxury of a pre-warmed bed on a cold night or felt the soothing comfort of warmth on tired, achy joints knows that heated bedding can make a big difference in their well-being. If you know someone who could use a little more comfort in their lives, consider giving them the gift of warmth!

Heated electric blankets, throws and mattress pads make terrific gifts. Over 4 million heated electric bedding products are sold each year in the U.S. alone, and of those, nearly 1 million are given as gifts.

Benefits to the Recipient:

  • Saves home heating costs. Using electric bedding (or throws) allows one to warm the body or the bed instead of heating the entire house. This allows them to turn down their thermostat and save on their energy bills. In most areas of the country, one can save up to 2% off of heating bills for each degree the furnace thermostat is turned down over just an eight-hour period. (Only 5 degrees = 10%!)
  • Therapeutic value. About 25% of people who purchase warming bedding state that they’re using them for therapeutic purposes. Heated blankets and pads relieve the pain and stiffness of arthritis, fibromyalgia, sinus problems and even sleeplessness.
  • Easy to care for. Heated electric bedding can be machine washed and dried. With proper care and storage, it’s a gift that will provide ideal comfort for many years.
  • Safety. Our SoftHeat Low Voltage Electric bedding is safe for most people. Please refer to the Electric Blanket Institute’s safety guidelines for more information on who should NOT use electric bedding.

And of course, possibly the most important reason why heated electric bedding makes a terrific gift: The recipient will think of you and remember how thoughtful you are every time they turn theirs on!
