My brother-in-law gave me a Snuggie blanket for my birthday. This blanket is advertised on TV, but I know that he got it at Walmart for about $10.00.
I've read online that a lot of people have had numerous problems when they ordered this blanket either from the website or from TV, so be careful of those two methods if you want to purchase this blanket. I think it would be more prudent to purchase it from a store.
As for the blanket itself, it is called the blanket with sleeves. My Snuggie is pink and super soft, which I think is it's best feature. It measures 71" x 54" and is machine washable. My husband was surprised that the blanket wasn't thicker, but when you wrap yourself up in it, it can keep you pretty warm. The sleeves are a little long for me so I have to roll them up, but the blanket itself seems pretty nice. I don't know how much I'll use it, because where I live it never gets very cold, but it will come in handy for those days that do drop down in temperature in the wintertime.
My blanket also came with a compact booklight which attaches to your book and gives you light when you are reading, so in a way it was like getting two gifts in one. And my Snuggie was a special edition that offers a donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
My only problem with this blanket is that my three dachshunds love it. They think it's a blanket for them to chew on and play with, and this blanket could easily be ruined if the dogs chew on it.
Snuggie would make a nice gift for those who experience really cold weather in the winter.
