If you thought Mother’s Day has a tendency to sneak up on you out of nowhere, then what’s to be said for Father’s Day? It’s forgotten to the point where it doesn’t even enter the conversation of “Wow, I just realised X is only 1-month away!”
And yet, on June 21 2020, Father’s Day arrives and sales of socks and chocs will spike, and we’ll all awkwardly joke about how it was last minute and we’d have purchased something better if we had more time.
Well, if you’re reading this in May 2020, in the midst of Covid-19, stuck at home all day not doing much of anything—that excuse isn’t going to quite cut the mustard this year. Before we get to Father’s Day Weighted Blankets ideas, what are your other options?

All very well. But how about this—give him the gift of better sleep with Weighted Blanket gifts!
We could all stand to get better sleep. Especially true for the Father figures in our lives who often shoulder a lot of responsibility on a daily basis. Weighted Blanket gifts are perfect for helping us relax, destress, and achieve better quality sleep each night.
By hugging our body closely, they activate deep touch stimulation (for our bodies, it feels just like a hug). Hugs are great as they trigger the release of endorphins which help us feel good and lower our heart rate. Precisely why our gifts are so well loved—after a long day, where our mind is racing, it can help bring us back down, calm us, and get into the perfect sleep mindset.
On top of that, Weighted Blanket gifts can also reduce aches and pains in our body. From restless leg syndrome to fibromyalgia, plenty of users have reported how their blanket helps reduce these pains to help them achieve a better night’s sleep.
“Best night's sleep I have ever had! I liked it so much I ordered another one, so my family members wouldn’t take mine! I do not get overheated, and the beads are evenly distributed. I ordered the cotton cover that they recommended for easy washing. I did not go up in blanket weight, even though they suggested a heavier blanket according to my weight. I might need to order a third blanket, because my husband sleeps better with the added weight. It helps with his restless leg syndrome. Best purchase ever!! Sooo thankful for a rested night's sleep, absolutely priceless.”
In fact, the Weighted Blanket covers benefits are numerous and are well suited for any adult whose sleep is disrupted for any reason. Plenty of customers have reported back on how much their Dad’s loved them. Here’s two other reviews for your Father’s Day Weighted Blankets considerations:
“Bought this for my dad who is a very light sleeper and doesn't get the best night's rest. Honestly, he was a little underwhelmed when he opened this blanket. Not because of the quality, but because he doubted its capabilities! My dad got the best night's rest he says he has gotten in a very long time while using this blanket. I have purchased another for my father-in-law!”
“Amazing, I received this as a gift but before I was able to use it my boyfriend took it for a test drive and had to buy his own. My dad borrowed it while I was out of town and ended up buying his own as well. 15lbs and queen size is perfect, I find it so hard to sleep without it!”
