With snuggle season about to be in full swing, there’s no better time than the present to gift yourself with the ultimate cuddling accessory: a weighted blanket. Anecdotally described as feeling akin to receiving a full-body hug, these blankets offer a gentle, soothing pressure as you drift off to sleep—and who doesn’t need a little help with that from time to time? Luckily, Target is offering a great discount on one that we can seriously get behind.

While our favorite weighted blanket, The Gravity Blanket, will set you back nearly $200, the brand just released a far more affordable version of this cult-loved bedding, dubbed Z by Gravity, at the Bullseye retailer—and it’s on sale. Normally starting from $79.99 in the 10-pound version, $99.99 in the 15-pound sizing and $179.99 in the 25-pounder, these blankets drop by 15% to $67.99, $85 and $149.99, respectively.
Considering that we loved pretty much everything about the original 15-pound Gravity Blanket except for its cost, we couldn’t be more excited about this release. Its even weight distribution provided the perfect amount of pressure to keep us cozy without overheating, and the velvet cover felt extremely well-made. Other pros included the fact that the cover is removable, making it easy to clean despite its weight and size, and its non-bulky design, which made storage a breeze.
This more budget-friendly version comes with all the same features as its predecessor, with a few minor differences. While it doesn’t feature a quilted duvet cover, these ones have a micro-fleece on one side for extra warmth with a cooling material on the other for optimal temperature control all year long. They also have a button-and-tie system that attaches the cover to the blanket instead of the zippered setup we liked so much in the core design.
With free standard shipping on this plush plus the 15% savings, these Z by Gravity blankets will soon see you trading sleepless nights for sweet dreams.
