Budget retailer Kmart always seems to hit the nail on the head.
The everything-store has proven itself a viable fashion retailer with on-trend pieces deserving of viral attention, and now, it’s making headlines once more — this time for a very affordable heated throw rug.
Guaranteed to make the winter months infinitely better, the heated throw is just $45, which is fantastic when you consider prices from competitor retailers that clock similar blankets in anywhere from $59.99 to $165 (does it read you a bedtime story too?!).
Kmart says its throw will keep you “warm and comfy” with variable heat settings with timer control, to ensure it turns off safely after a set period.
The item has overheat protection and variable settings. The controller is also detachable, which means you can wash it in the machine when you inevitably spill crumbs, chocolate and ice-cream on it during a late-night Netflix sesh… which is all you do when the colder seasons strike.
Shop the range of Kmart’s heated throws here. There are two cosy colours to choose from: pink/light grey and charcoal. Also in the range are fitted electric blankets, available in the mattress size of your choice — from single to king and everything in between.
The heated human range is the perfect pairing to the fleece pet blanket, also at Kmart for a mere $2.
Now, both you and your furry friend can be kept warm all winter, and never, ever leave the comforting cocoon of your heated beds. Not even for walkies.
If you’re looking to invest a little more in a heated throw, consider this Jason Heated Throw from Big W that’ll set you back $89. It comes with nine heat settings and is machine washable.
