Some people are more difficult to buy for than others, however, the Heat Holders Snuggle Up Thermal Blanket is quite literally a cover-all gift.
This blanket is huge but so light and soft it is different to other fleece type blankets in many ways. It measures an enormous 180 x 200cm so is large enough for any couple to share on a sofa on a cold evening, yet it is light, so an older person or small child can pull it over themselves – you don’t need to be Spiderman to wrap up warm. So big and soft, but how soft? They say that your fingers aren’t sensitive enough to feel Chinchilla fur, I would say that this is the Chinchilla of the microfibre world, it is 100% polyester, so no animals were harmed to bring us such a soft warm blanket.
How warm? This blanket is measurably warm, having been given a tog rating of 1.7. it is available in a range of more than a dozen colours, so will go in any home, be it in a lounge or bedroom.
I would imagine that this blanket would come into its own in a caravan or on a boat, where one is looking for warmth over bulk.
My blanket has been invaluable over this cold winter, as my daughter, who suffers from cold feet and struggles to keep them warm, finds some socks restrict the blood flow, so a blanket is the ideal solution as it holds the heat with no disadvantages. The blanket is so large and fluffy it will wrap you up from toes to nose.
I am sure this beautiful blanket is the first of many at our house, we need one for the car. I think that our puppy thinks she needs one as well; at such a reasonable price, how can I say no? So, off to find the perfect colour for her – with such a huge choice, that may take some time.
