Create the Perfect Blanket Fort With These 5 Nerdy Blankets

Let's face it. Most of us are going to be inside for a long time. Now more than ever it's important to practice social distancing, or even social isolation, for the time being. But that doesn't mean you can't have fun by yourself. From watching endless hours of Netflix to maybe getting some much needed reading out of the way, there's one thing we all need more of: blankets.

I have a healthy collection of blankets, and I've been bundled in most of them for the last few weeks. I've also started building fort blankets in my room. Mostly for me, sometimes for my cats to play in. But everyone can benefit from a good blanket, especially now.
