{Hermes Avalon Blanket, $2,425}

Luckily Chicago was spared the wintry madness that recently sacked the East Coast, causing thousands of flight cancellations and forcing many people to just stay put.  Although the amount of precipitation that Chitown has received has been managable, I still very much enjoy the idea of curling up with a good book (or good shelter mag) in front of a fire, underneath a cozy blanket.  Throws always make great gifts-neutral yet useful.

The Hermes Avalon blanket is the epitome of elegant comfort.  However, if you don’t feel like dropping $2,425 to stay warm on your sofa then here are some other great options (many of which are now on sale).

You can never have too many blankets around the house. What is so great about these is that they look pretty too. Draping them along side your couch is a great thing to do so that your guests can feel as though they can cuddle up and get comfortable.

I always have a blanket to hand. It helps reduce the arguments about how high I’ve turned up the central heating!

The lima alpaca blankets are great, but you should also try a fouta 🙂
