Important Update: November 27, 2019 – We have included Black Friday deals for each product where we could find them.
The weighted blanket is now the #1 ranked household item in the USA to relieve stress and anxiety and improve sleep. It seems the word has spread across the pond as sales in the UK have spiked over the past 6 months. It seems to be the perfect gift for that loved one to help with sleep, relaxation and anxiety.
With the weighted blanket being such a hot item, we have listed the top 2 available in the UK.
For those on a budget we recommend the Kudd.ly Weighted Blanket. Kudd.ly is an easy to use weighted blanket with all the benefits. We like how it is UK based and has a great return policy.
It has gained a cult following across the UK because it is easy to use and looks great around the house.
Your loved ones can use Kudd.ly on the sofa while watching their favourite show or reading a book. It also works great in the bed to help improve sleep.
It will be an item used daily by the entire household.
*We suggest checking out their website as they have an abundance of information on weighted blankets.
The gift that will be used everyday around the house. The Koala Theraputic Blanket has 2 size options and 2 weight options ranging from 6kg to 9kg. It was designed to mimic the feeling of a warm cosy hug.

#2 Smart Home Google Nest
The smart home has finally made it to the masses. Coming in second on the list was gadgets to make your home “smarter”.
This year’s Google Nest model brings improved audio quality, as well as some tweaks to its external interface. The big change there is a presence-detection system that can tell when you’re standing near the speaker, at which point it will illuminate the touch interface on top of it so you can better see the volume controls.
We weren’t able to find any Black Friday deals as of yet. But it seems the lowest price is currently at Currys PC World.
#3 Instant Pot
Always a popular item on Black Friday and as a Christmas gift, the Instant Pot is a great household addition for those who love to cook.
The convenience of an all-in-one cooker that saves space in the cupboards and time in the kitchen does have advantages—especially if you don’t already own a slow cooker or pressure cooker. It is great for cooking meats and will be an item used weekly in any house.
