Cuddling up under a blanket to watch TV is a time-honored tradition, and for good reason. A fleece blanket keeps you warm if the AC is aggressive or if it’s snowing outside. It also adds a personal touch to the couch, and can be tossed in the wash every few weeks. Here, some things to consider before you dive under the covers.

Throw blankets are incredibly versatile. While they can always have a place on the couch, large ones can be great options for additional bedding for guests—especially if you have finicky heat or AC. It can also be a good idea to toss one in the trunk. That way, you have it for camping adventures or for when a passenger needs to cozy up and take a nap on the road.
