If you’re in search of the perfect present, Chrissy Teigen has you covered.

The multitalented model, author and TV personality who always keeps it real has a great suggestion for a holiday gift that will work for almost anyone you may be shopping for: this Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic Throw Blanket, available on Amazon for $147, and a couple patterns are even on sale right now.


This cream-and-dove combination is on sale for $85.87 (down from $120)!


This cream with white trim option is marked down to $109 from $119.


Teigen often shares details about her personal life on social media —
whether she’s dropping genius mom hacks or sharing totally relatable marital problems.

Now, she has taken to Twitter to let everyone in on the gift idea she swears will be a hit:

“If you are struggling for a Christmas gift for someone, get them a barefoot dreams blanket,” she wrote. “I use mine 365. It stretches and wraps over your shoulders and feet and nothing else compares.”

She clarified in the thread on Twitter that her endorsement is not an ad for the company, she just wanted to suggest “something cool.”

Teigen also tweeted a photo of her blanket (it looks like she has the indigo version) as the backdrop to a birthday cheesesteak:

What other gift are you going to get that comes complete with a wholehearted personal endorsement from Chrissy Teigen?

She’s not the only one in love with the super-comfortable blanket, either. It has a solid four-out-of-five star rating on Amazon. Perhaps best of all, it comes in a variety of colors and sizes. This would make a great birthday, housewarming or Valentine’s Day gift.


Or why not treat yourself? Cozying up in this warm blanket with a hot mug of tea sounds like the perfect way to unwind after the frenetic pace that comes with the holiday season.


If you prefer a patterned print, consider a similar blanket with a nature-inspired vibe. The Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Safari throw costs $136 and comes in three cute prints.


For slightly less expensive yet luxurious options, consider Stone & Beam’s faux fur blanket for $69.99.


Or check out Rivet’s modern cotton throw with a geometric design for $69.99.


Will you take Teigen’s advice and buy one of these?
