The only thing better than a nap is a nap when you're swaddled in a luxurious velvet weighted blanket — and that's exactly what you can achieve with Bearaby's new limited edition Velvet Napper.

Launching for pre-order today and shipping on November 17, the Wintry Gems Holiday Collection spins the brand's popular velvet weighted blanket into a gem-tone color palette spanning a range of pinks, greens, and one cool silver. It comes in three weights: 15 pounds ($269), 20 pounds ($279), and 25 pounds ($299).

Weighted blankets are known for providing a soothing, calming sense to their users — wrapping one around you kind of feels like you're getting a hug — but the coolest thing about the Velvet Napper, in particular, is that it's woven from an incredibly soft material made from recycled marine plastic. How awesome is that?
