Have you succumbed to the slanket yet?

One of the biggest-selling gifts this Christmas, apparently, is the slanket , a sort of snuggly blanket that envelops your entire body. The effect is slightly caterpillar/Jabba the Hut, depending on your body shape.

Although I can see the appeal in the current cold snap, I would imagine wearing one encourages you never to leave the sofa. However, if you are planning to buy one, either as a gift or for yourself, they sell them at Lakeland, Firebox and Play.com.

    It is classic isn’t it? I couldn’t believe the story when I read that it was one of the hottest selling Xmas gifts. But then I told myself – hang on lady, are you not a PR yourself???? Should know better than to believe everything that you read in the papers. That said – it is completely up my teenage student son’s street – shame there is no Star Wars version!

    There’s something cosy about snuggling up under a blanket that your nan’s knitted you. I’m not convinced a slanket can deliver that same amount of comfort, even if it is more practical.

    tee hee, Star Wars version indeed, they’ll read that MummyTips, you’d better be quick and patent it! I could get one for everyone in the office, and turn off the heating, just think of us all sitting here around the meeting table wearing them! Ever the queen-of-green me ;>)

    Well, MummyTips, they do have a nice camouflage one. And trust me on this, Gary, the Slanket Man (www.theslanket.com) will happily send one to you for a bit of PR. How do you think I got mine? I love my Slanket and yes, it does pin you down to the couch but is that a bad thing? They have adult, kids and TRAVEL Slankets. I think it’s great…which is why I have one. I didn’t know Lakeland sold them. How good for Gary and The Slanket! 😉 Karin

    I must admit that secretly (well, not anymore) I would love one. I am always enveloped in a blanket and duvet on the sofa … am I getting old?!

    Now come on, the look is Jabba the Hut whatever your body shape!

    Erm… well I must admit – I’ve been looking at them for the past few weeks, but purchasing one is like admitting old age is setting in… and I can’t see much sex appeal when my hubby gets back on a Thurs night after working away all week and I’m wrapped up like a granny onthe couch lol… but I do still fancy one! I was going to dare buy mum one for Xmas, but wasn’t sure what her reaction would be so decided against it! Anyway, if I did get one, beingas clumsy as I am, I’d probably fall over it and break my nose or something!

    Yes you look like a fool, but you are a snuggly warm fool who has saved on heating bills. So who cares.
