This year I did not buy my own Christmas gift. I think it was the first time in 15 years of marriage :-) We really focus on the kids and, let’s face it, buying my own gift ensures I get something I want and saves Honey the trouble of shopping, which is probably his number 1 most dreaded chore. For some reason we decided to surprise each other with gifts this year and my most favorite of all – and something I never would have bought for myself in a million years – was a heated mattress pad!
When Mother and Daddy-O were in town for the December “blizzard” they kept talking about the cold. I told them that I looked at a heated mattress pad over a year ago, just in passing. Well, Daddy-O went on a mission to find one, had it shipped to his house, and put it on their bed the very night they returned to Savannah from Atlanta. They raved about it. Honey decided we needed in and purchased the exact same one for us as my Christmas gift. I might have given the slightest side-eye when I opened a mattress pad on Christmas morning but we put it on our bed on December 26 and, I have to say, it is the most luxurious thing I have ever owned. HA!
We all have the Sunbeam Waterproof Heated Mattress Pad from Costco. This particular one is the only waterproof one with great reviews that Daddy-O came across. It is not available in store but has free shipping from their site. I *think* there was an additional $20 off back when they bought them as well, but am not sure if that promotion is still going on.
Since I know not everyone is a Costco member, I believe this is the exact same one on Amazon, however it is more expensive.
I really cannot say enough good things about it. We love the dual controls (it seems the men prefer it up on 20 while the women like it down on low), it is comfortable to sleep on and it makes such a huge difference on these cold winter nights we have been having. We like to sleep in a pretty chilly house because it is so much easier to breathe. This is like having the best of both worlds!! I turn it on to pre-heat when we go upstairs to get ready for bed. The best part of all might just be crawling in to a toasty bed at the end of a long day!
