Why a Kocoono Weighted Blanket is the Best Gift for Mother’s Day?

Do you want to get your mother, wife, daughter or grandmother a unique gift that helps them relax and have the best sleep ever? Consider getting her a Kocoono weighted blanket! Kocoono is the most loved weighted blanket in Ireland & the perfect pick for her.

Think of your mother or grandmother snuggling under their soft Kocoono calming blanket on the couch with a hot cup of tea, so cosy! Much more useful than flowers or chocolates! Kocoono Weighted Blankets are made to last for years! They are an investment for your mother's quality of sleep and wellbeing.

What is a Koocoono Weighted Blanket? How Does it Work?

The Irish Kocoono Weighted Blankets are luxury hand-stitched blankets that apply gentle pressure on the body. You probably heard them called "Gravity Blanket", " Anxiety blanket" or "Calming blanket". Their concept is based on Deep Touch Pressure Therapy that mimics a hug & provides the same calming benefits. They help you to sleep better, faster and deeper & help ease stress and anxiety in the body. They are also often used to ease the adverse symptoms of anxiety, the menopause, restless legs syndrome, fibromyalgia, dementia, Alzheimer's and other health conditions.

We have 2 versions of Weighted Blanket:

- our original patented Kocoono Weighted Blanket LUXE, which is customisable, has an integrated shoulder embrace that makes it unique on the market and honestly feels like you are being hugged by a cloud 

- and the simpler version Kocoono Weighted Blanket BASIC, which is not customisable and has less features but still provide the benefits of Pressure Therapy.

Why Kocoono Weighted Blanket is the best gift for Mother’s Day?

Some research shows that women are twice as likely to have insomnia than men. Unfortunately, insomnia and sleep difficulties disproportionately affect women due in no small part to the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, postpartum and menopause.

How can a Kocoono Weighted Blanket help young Mothers?

There is a natural shift in new mothers' brain/body behaviour to be more alert and listen out intently for the baby. After the many calls, emails, and messages we receive from women or loved ones looking for a solution to their sleep problem, this brain and body alertness does not solely affect new mothers. Women with grown children would often tell us they would always be on high alert even into their 60's and 70's due to constant worry about their grown children for years. The worrying does not stop, nor does the body's capacity for maternal instincts and the innate need to protect and ensure everyone is okay. Being a mum is not easy work!

Kocoono Weighted Blankets can help your mother, daughter, or wife calm their bodies, and finally, switch off and have a better quality sleep. 

How can Kocoono Weighted Blankets help elderly mothers or grandmothers?

A Kocoono Weighted Blanket can also  be ideal for your grandmother or elderly mother, as sleep tends to become a problem as we age. Some causes affect women's sleep and occur with age, like Dementia, Restless Legs (this is also common when women are pregnant), Fibromyalgia, and Osteoarthritis, among others. If your grandmother is suffering from any of these conditions, you can help her deal with the symptoms by gifting a Kocoono Weighted Blanket. The weighted blanket will help ease the symptoms of these conditions. Check our blogs below to learn more!

How heavy should a weighted blanket be?

We recommend to choose a Kocoono weighted blanket that ideally weighs 10% of your body weight or the weight of your loved one. 

We have 3 different weights for our Kocoono Weighted Blankets:

  • Weighted Blanket 5kg - Suitable if she weighs between 50 - 70 kg (8- 11 stone)
  • Weighted Blanket 7kg- Suitable if she weighs between 70 - 90 kg (11- 13 stone)
  • Weighted Blanket 9 kg- Suitable if she weighs over 90 kg  over 13 stone)

Please note: Everyone's body is different and has different weight preferences, if you are looking for specific advice please pop us an email to info@kocoono.com and we will be more than happy to advise!

Get a lighter option for the Elderly

If you are thinking of gifting a Kocoono Weighted Blanket to your grandmother or elderly mother, it is best to go for lighter options. The Kocoono Weighted Blanket 5kg would be ideal in most of these cases. If she weighs over 14 stone, the 7kg might be better for her. In any case, we do not recommend the 9kg for the elderly as they are more sensitive to the weight and the majority of our older customers are more than happy and their bodies keep calm and rested with the 5kg or 7kg. 

From our 2 versions of the Kocoono Weighted Blankets (LUXE and BASIC), we recommend the Kocoono ™ Weighted Blanket LUXE, as it is more comfortable than the BASIC. We use silicone balls to plump up the weighted channels, so it feels cosier and more similar to a duvet. The BASIC version has a thin layer of wadding in addition to the weighted glass beads, so the weight can feel somewhat more concentrated at times.
