If you’ve never heard of weighted blankets, they are pretty darn amazing. The blankets use the power of deep touch simulation to relax the nervous system, and they’re designed to help with anxiety, insomnia, sensory disorders and more by gently distributing pressure across your body.

Basically, using a weighted blanket is like being held or hugged by a loved one — or a genius blanket.

While they can be more expensive than your standard, lightweight blankets, easily heading into the hundreds of dollars, like the Gravity Blanket, Target is offering a Black Friday sale on a weighted blanket for 29 percent off the original price.

Weighed down with glass beads and polyester, the blanket provides 12 pounds of pressure. Measuring 48 inches by 72 inches, you can get it in either ivory or gray. You cannot put it in the washing machine, but can spot clean or wipe it down, then lay it flat to dry.

The blanket may or may not be available to ship to your house, but it is in stock to purchase at some stores.
