HOLIDAY GIFT IDEAS!! Slanket Review!

In our house one of us is always cold (me) and the other is always hot (hubby). So when winter rolls around, we have a problem. I am forever and a day turning up the heat especially at night because I am chilly. He is forever and a day turning down the heat because he gets too warm. I am sure many of you have the same issue.

So when I got the opportunity to review The Slanket, I was thrilled because I figured this might be the answer to our problems. And guess what? It was. Okay, I have to say that whoever invented the Slanket is a genius. A blanket with sleeves is just what I needed. I love it!!!

To use the Slanket you put your arms through the sleeves and that's it. The back is open so it is easy to slip on and off. This thing is really huge as well. If I had a complaint about the Slanket is that it was too long for me so when I stood up it dragged on the ground. But on the other hand, when I am sitting down and curled up in the Slanket, it covers my feet and toes and keeps them warm and toasty!

The Slanket comes in all colors and sizes. There is the regular Slanket (pictured), the Kid's Slanket and the Siamese Slanket. The Siamese Slanket is great if you and your honey watch TV together. Two people can share and it makes cuddling easy! There is also a Travel Slanket. I think I want one of these because I always freeze in the airplane. I know when we take another road trip I am tossing the my Slanket into the car so I can curl up while Tom drives.

It is really soft and comfortable. I love that the sleeves are large and I can use the Slanket and still be on the computer and use the remote. It keeps my whole body covered and warm. I love this thing. I can't imagine what I did without it. Now Tom can have the heat lower and be comfortable and I can be totally wrapped up in my Slanket and be comfortable as well.

I wear it all the time now even during the day. The other day I was in my Slanket and the UPS guy knocked on the door. What a dilemma. I thought do I slip out of my Slanket and answer the door or keep it on. You know I kept it on. He looked at me sort of weird and I said: "It's a Slanket." Then I proceeded to chat him up at how fantastic it is. He might be buying one for his wife this Christmas.

My only problem with The Slanket is that the cats love it as much as I do. I keep my Slanket on the sofa since that is where I use it the most and they keep lying on it and falling asleep. I have to fight them for it. Every time I turn around they are on it. I have to keep kicking them off so I can use it.

So I give The Slanket two thumbs up. This is the perfect product for me and if you hate being cold especially during these long winter nights, it might be perfect for you as well. Who would have thought such a simple idea would be the answer to lowering our electric bills as well?

I have to thank Gary at The Slanket for giving me the opportunity to try this product. It is probably one of my favorite items I reviewed! If you want to purchase a Slanket head on over to their site and you can order one for you or for your family and friends! The Slankets are on sale at $32.99 which I think is a fantastic deal! And right now there is free shipping on all orders over $95!! So what are you waiting for? Go get your Slanket!!
