Okay, you definitely know about weighted blankets. If you need a refresher, they're literal heavy throws that act like your dog's thunder shirt—but for humans. Many report that the added pressure makes them feel more relaxed (wasn't kidding about the thunder shirt thing!) and maybe even improve their sleep overall. Plus, they're just so dang thick and cozy.

So now that I've given you an overview, here is where I tell you that Bearaby, the direct-to-consumer sustainable weighted blanket brand you've prob seen on IG, just launched some limited-edition ombré styles in partnership with The Hyppo, a Saint Augustine, Florida-based popsicle company. And to confirm what you were already thinking, you get six pops with your purchase of the newest "Napsicle" blankets.

The styles come in three hues, yellow (mango siesta), purple (blueberry nights), and pink (watermelon dreams), and these are also the flavors of the frozen treats you get with your purchase. They also come in three different weights—15, 20, and 25 lbs—and you can take a super short quiz on their site to find out which is recommended for you. (I'm a 15-pound blanket gal myself.)

While the price is a bit more than the average throw (it ranges from $259-$289 depending on the weight), they're hand-knit, thick and durable, and made from sustainable materials like plant-based Tencel and cotton so you can feel better about your eco-friendly purchase. Also, if you're familiar with "buy now pay later" programs, you can finance your purchase over a couple months so you don't have to pay it all up front.

But it's not just for falling asleep either! Sit under yours while reading a book, drinking your coffee, or if you're just feeling like a big ball of stress. (From personal experience, eating a popsicle as a midday work break is pretty great for that too, just saying.)
