6. Electric Heated Throw

 nightwear for teens

I’ve heard of the electric heated blanket but I didn’t know about the electric heated throw. This gorgeous velvety throw is from Lakeland and costs 1p to run for seven hours. It is machine washable and can be set to switch off at a certain time. Love it and I don’t think there is a teenager alive who could complain about being cold if they owned one of these!
