And thanks to the Gannett Foundation – the charitable arm of the Evening Times' parent company – a local charity will be able to provide them.
Govan-based charity Starter Packs, which provides packs to previously homeless people who are moving into new homes, have been awarded £9000.
Sarah Findlay, manager of the charity which won one of our Community Champions awards last year, said they were "over the moon" to get the grant, which will go towards buying more than 1000 brand new duvets for children and adults.
She said: "As a re-use project we are often asked why don't you take second- hand duvets?
"The feedback constantly is that people don't mind, as they know they are getting helped, but bedding is something very personal and it mirrors the idea that this is my new home and my new start and here is my new duvet, and it is just a lovely experience for people."
Last year the charity featured in Channel Four documentary series The Secret Millionaire.
Sarah said: "I'll never forget when we watched The Secret Millionaire, we all huddled round the TV to watch our take on that, and it was the one thing that he commented on.
"As he was opening the package he said 'Here I am. I have moved into my new home and it is lovely to have all these things, but this is my new duvet'.
"This money will mean that certainly from January to about August every client that we are helping will have their duvet thanks to the Gannett Foundation and the Evening Times."
The Dalmarnock Centre also got a cash boost from the Gannett Foundation, with £7500 to go towards the second phase of its garden project.
AS REPORTED in the Evening Times the centre, which was part of the Evening Times Streets Ahead campaign, completed phase one of its project – the children's garden – in August this year.
Now, thanks to the Gannett Foundation, they can build a big green space and allotments just down the road which will be ready to harvest next year.
Yvonne Kucuk, development manager at the centre, said they were "absolutely delighted" to get the money, which means they can start work on building sheds and greenhouses on the land.
She said: "Instead of having to cultivate plants off site we will be able to cultivate it there and teach people about the life cycle of plants, so it will be horticultural education.
"We are in the middle of the Games village and everything is being built around us for the 2014 Games, so this will be a wee oasis in the middle of all that construction and a place where people can come and sit."
Partly funded by the Climate Challenge Fund and Glasgow City Council, the gardens are all about teaching local people about healthy eating as well as about the environment.
And the planned phase three will also see the creation of a market garden where local people can grow produce to sell to the athletes in the Games village in 2014.
Yvonne said: "This is a legacy project, we have looked at the health of the area and people being educated to grow their own foods, and also it is a positive thing financially for people who actually grow their own and save money in these hard financial times.
"We are also running the cookery classes to show people they can make homemade soup from the produce, and it's a really cheap nutritious meal for their kids."
She added: "It all came from the Streets Ahead campaign – as the saying goes, 'Mighty oaks from little acorns grow.'"
In Glasgow, another winner was the East Glasgow Music School, who offer music lessons to primary school children in the East End.
They were awarded £5000 to buy new instruments, including oboes and violins, to allow more young people to get the chance to play.
Other Scottish winners were Bannockburn Riding for the Disabled, who got £5540 to buy and train a new horse for the centre, which offers riding lessons to disabled people.
And Edinburgh Cyrenians, the charity which runs the Royal Edinburgh Community Gardens, got £5500 to buy a portacabin to provide shelter and a centre in the garden.
