This La Tete Au Cube Buddy Throw ($139) would be a wonderful thing to have next time I'm home sick on the couch. The 85 percent wool blanket delivers a double-dose of cuddliness. You can cover up with it when you're cold or let it "embrace" you while it's tossed over the back of the sofa. Plus, it's sleek and sophisticated, which is more than I can say for most throw blankets.
The Buddy Throw is available in chocolate and gray for $135 or in four other color combinations for $169, including red/burgundy.
