Here at HSD, we are one of the UK’s largest providers of electric blankets. So, you can be sure that you’re in good hands when buying your electric blanket from us.


Electric blankets can be a saviour in the cold winter months.

Did you know, electric blankets have been around for over a hundred years? They have been some of our best-sellers for quite a while now, too. And our very own Homefront range has proven to be very popular since its launch. We’ve worked extremely hard to provide our customers with quality, affordable, luxurious electric blankets – so much so that one of the blankets from the Homefront range won the Which Best Buy Award in 2011!

Looking to save money?

You can actually save money this winter by investing in an electric blanket. With costs from as little as 2p per night, there is simply no need to be forking out huge sums of money on heating and gas bills.

The health benefits

Statistics have shown that around 25% of people who purchase electric blankets do so for the therapeutic benefits that come with it. Many electric blanket users are sufferers of:

muscle soreness
back pain

Fact: By applying heat around the painful area, the blood flow increases and so the pains associated with muscle tension and stiffness are reduced.

Allergy sufferers also benefit hugely from electric blankets, believe it or not. Dust mites are one of the biggest causes of asthma. And mites just love humidity.. This humidity is caused by the moisture within your mattress.

Studies partaken in universities around the world have confirmed that the use of an electric blanket for just 1 month can cause a humidity reduction – this can reduce the number of dust mites by a whopping 50%!
