When it comes to weighted blankets, "low-cost" is a relative term. None of these are precisely what I'd call "budget options," but they're a lot less expensive than the actual gravity blanket. Much like electric blankets, weighted blankets offer comfort and stress relief when you doze off, helping you get a better night's sleep. Check out our list of the best cheap gravity blanket alternatives.

Our recommendations

There are products out there that help you ease into sleep. Just like an ergonomic trigger point massage gun can soothe the ache, weighted blankets can tamper stress and insomnia.

All of these blankets deliver many of the benefits of the gravity blanket at a much lower price. If I had to pick just one, I'd go with the Quility 25lb Weighted Blanket (opens in new tab). It's soft and comes in a variety of both sizes and colors. If you tend to overheat when you slip under the covers, go with the YnM Cooling Weighted Blanket (opens in new tab). It's made from natural bamboo and regulates your body temperature throughout the night.

And if you want a set, we like Dr. Hart's Weighted Blanket Deluxe Set (opens in new tab). It comes with a form-fitting weighted blanket and comforter.
