We love cuddling up under a luxe blanket with a good book and a cup of tea, which means that warm throw blankets are a must-have for winter.
To prepare you for the coming colder months, our lifestyle editor Claire Badenhorst has put together a list of her favourite plush winter blankets.
In addition to being warm and cuddly, they can also be a trendy decor accessory for your lounge or bedroom.
Go for grey
Grey is the neutral to use at the moment, and we love this modern grey and yellow check design from Woolworths.
This chunky blanket will add a luxurious layer of softness to your bed or couch, with a fleece finish and a fluffy Sherpa reverse. It’s a real winter treat.
For the ultimate in warmth and coziness, opt for a long pile blanket from Mr Price Home in several gorgeous tones, including Emerald, Chilli Red, Mint and Charcoal.
One of these beauties is just what you need for a lazy Sunday on the couch.
Create your ultimate cosy winter home with this luxury mink blanket in black. Metallics are still really popular and we love how the blanket looks against the bronze velvet headboard.
You can create interesting textures on your bed by combining plush velvet with a chunky blanket or a quilt. It’s a simple but effective on-trend look.
This throw was made for snuggling! Decadently soft and warm, it comes in three colours and simply begs for breakfast in bed. Simply add coffee, crumpets and syrup.
Create a peaceful, cozy mood in your bedroom with these flannel blankets in jewel tones. You can even throw one over the couch for a stylish accent; but it just doesn’t get comfier than this. At this price, they’re also a steal!
