Brrrr. Whether snuggling up on the sofa, in front of a fire, or tailgating before the game, cozy throw blankets are a necessity.

Just because you are super focused on function when using throw blankets does not mean you need to sacrifice form. Practicality does not require that you throw (pun intended) aesthetics out the window–at least not in our book.

Get warm and toasty with these throw blankets that combine just the perfect amount of warmth and fun design. By the way, the Danish have a word special word for getting cozy. They call it hygge, and it’s pretty much a national pastime, particularly during the winter. It sounds like the rest of the Northern Hemisphere could learn a thing or two from the Danes.
