Today is National Napping Day, and to celebrate this occasion we’re spotlighting blankets. After all, is there anything that goes with a good nap better than a soft, warm blanket?
While filled comforters tend to get the most attention, a flat blanket makes a perfect companion for an impromptu mid-day nap. For those times when pulling back the covers on the hotel bed is just too much effort, having a luxurious extra blanket bedside is a welcome addition for tired travelers. But how can you decide which option will suit your guests best?
