Three Cozy Throws
1. This Chelsea Throw Blanket (Bed Bath & Beyond, $40) was so nice, it actually gifted twice. A., who'd been complaining of my bed's lack of warm and comfy bedding gave me the grey one as a Christmas gift. When we flew to Los Angeles days later, I discovered his sister had also bought the exact blanket, but in blue. Now I have one in both apartments.
2. My sister included the knitted Quotable Throw (Barnes & Noble, $35) in her incredibly thoughtful cancer care package. As soon as I pulled it out of the oversized Jonathan Adler Booked Bag Canvas Navy Tote (Barnes & Noble, $20) it all came in, we unfolded it and tried to guess which classic book contained each famous line. Then we did the same for the bag.
3. While I was having my lumpectomy last month, Dad took it upon himself to give my home a mini makeover with new bedding, curtains, and bathroom décor. My favorite item is this plush throw that's so soft, I love wrapping myself in it like a burrito before falling asleep. (Linen Outlet, 1447 St. Nicholas Ave. between 182 and 183 St., $15)
