Cold? Grab a Slanket!

It's a good thing I live in sunny California because I'm always cold. Even in the middle of the summer, you'll still find me bundled up in a blanket at night. And now that it's winter and it's still mostly sunny outside, it actually is quite cold (really), and I find myself shivering throughout most of the day.

One day last week I was shivering as usual and it happened to be raining, which made my situation even more miserable. I was trying to see how many blankets I could hide under to keep warm when a knock on the door interrupted my futile experiment. The box that stood on my doorstep was what saved me that day. It was my slanket. The problem that I was having with all my other blankets was that I couldn't seem to keep my upper body warm. When relaxing on the couch I like to be able to do things such as read, drink hot cocoa, eat endless bags of chips, or operate the remote control. I would use my laptop on the couch as well, only I don't have one. These things are difficult to do when your arms are freezing as a result of having taken them out from underneath the blanket. The slanket on the other hand, has these genius loose-fitting sleeves built in for your arms. Problem instantly solved! Not only that, but it's a really great blanket as well. It's soft, lightweight, nonpilling (which I love) and very large.

To get one for yourself go here. If your kids try to steal yours, get them their own - slankets for kids are available here. And since the slanket will keep you warm, you can turn down the thermostat and save money!

  1. They DO look wonderful and how appropriate for you! That's funny, I also freeze even in the summertime. I can't stand any breeze at all touching my body, it's like an assault!
    I'm happy you have a Slanket!

  2. This was on my wish list, but I didn't get one for Christmas. :( But I'll figure out a way to get one...by next Christmas hopefully I'll be a proud slanket owner!!
