Home should be your happy place—now more than ever. Head to the #MakeYourselfAtHome hub to find tiny projects, feel-good recipes, and clever decorating ideas to make each day a little bit brighter.

These days, as we’re increasingly homebound, R&R is more important than ever. Whether you’re spending your downtime snoozing or catching up on The Great British Bake Off, taking a few hours to unwind can keep you feeling focused and refreshed. 

Integral to this plot is a really good blanket—the kind that becomes a staple of your lounging experience. Picking the perfect one, though, is easier said than done. It has to be stylish enough to double as textile art when draped elegantly (of course) over the arm of your sectional. It has to feel as snuggly as your favorite sweater. It also, ideally, won’t force your bank to notify you that an unusually high amount has just been charged to your credit card. 

We’re here to deliver some good news: Affordable throws exist in every color of the rainbow; you just have to know where to look. We can confidently say it doesn’t get better than these eight options, all of which are under $100. Happy shopping and even happier lounging!

If You Like to Keep Things Simple

These creamy neutrals go with anything, making them an ideal investment. Opt for a fringed wool throw or a chunky knit piece to bring the cozy to your couch.

If You’re Into Pattern Play

Blankets that double as decor pieces? No problem. How about a terracotta block-printed textile that could double as a picnic blanket when you’re out and about? And Burke Decor’s graphic option is so eye-catching, you may want to hang it on the wall. 

If You’re Searching for a Signature Hue

Pick your player: H&M’s soft cotton muslin blanket in a tangy tangerine or Kohl’s über-soft lemon-hued number. 

If You Want to Take a Walk on the Wild Side

Try a different kind of animal print to liven up your nook, like this mini knit that’s perfect for a child’s room. Or go for a vibrant leopard design that transports you directly to the jungle.
