Public Service Announcement: Get a Snuggie

Let me start off by saying that I'm not getting any sort of compensation from the Snuggie manufactering industry. I'm just totally in love with the Valentine's Day gift from my husband.


Yes, I laughed at the commercial too. Its a pretty ridiculous idea. A blanket with sleeves? Come on people! I'm way too cool and sophisticated to want one of those. Right?




That was until I spent the last few months insisting its freezing in this house while my husband walks around in his underwear sweating. Ok, maybe I have a tempature problem. But that doesn't help me stop my teeth from chattering.

Being the romantic that he is, a maroon snuggie was waiting for me when we returned from Japan. Now I am the proud owner of one (along with completely useless complimentary booklight) and it has rocked my world.

Sure, I look like I'm about to commit some sort of animal sacrifice in a twisted cult for reality tv watching. I don't care!

Note to my neighbors: Try to avoid looking in my (still uncovered) windows during evening prime time hours. You are bound to be terrified by what looks like the female Dumbledore flipping through channels.

  1. This is too funny. I ordered J one for Christmas back in November, and it didn't arrive until just before V-day... so by default, that was his Valentine's gift. I got one for myself, too. Our house is always freezing, so we were totally sold on the gigantor fleece backwards robe idea!

  2. I have to say, I just can't go there with the snuggie...but this Canadian winter has been particularly harsh. I purchased several of the faux fur throws (one side a good imitation of a beaver pelt, the other side a soft chocolate velour) and they have been priceless. So my kids walk around the house carrying these throws looking like little bears!

  4. One of my best friends got one for Christmas & I love it! They are totally goofy, but really soft & warm! Her cats have kind of taken it over because I believe she too is afraid of the neighbors seeing her in it...

  5. Hehe! Too funny, I am the proud owner of the snuggie's cousin--the slanket!

    I got mine for Christmas and I love it! : )

  8. I am from Florida but if it gets below 60 degrees, I am freezing:) I thought that it looked kinda stupid but now that I know that it rocks your world, I might just have to order one. You know that I'm moving to northern Ky. this year and I will need it:)

  9. I received a blue one for Christmas and I LOVE it!! I look like I should be drinking some poisoned punch but I don't care. I actually like the book light. It's pretty darn bright so I use it for a flash light LOL!

  10. You are awesome!! Thank you for owning up to owning one and loving it! I've been coveting a "Slanket" for some time now but nobody takes me seriously! They just laugh and make a joke. Please tell me, what do you think of the quality of your slanket? Is it a nice thick fleece? I may just have to treat myself to one seeing that as I type this, I'm wearing my "hawaii or bust" ski hat and am hovering around my little electric space heater all to avoid an astronomical gas bill!!! Oh the humanity!

  11. Okay, I'm going to take your word for it and by the looks of your comments, their word for it too. But if you feel yourself dying, get it off in a hurry because you really wouldn't want to be caught dead in it. They'll think you're from a satanic cult (one that requires really great decorating, but still!)

  12. That's funny...my french teacher got one of those blanket things for Christmas, and thought it was pretty useless, but the booklight that came with it was her favorite gift of all.

  15. I just choked on my coffee. Female Dumbledore and cult visions are dancing thru my head.

    But oh, how I want one of these! I'm always cold.

  17. Oh, I am so jealous. We laugh every time we see it on tv, but according to my son, it is a top seller, and I thought yours would be "brocade" lol!

  18. Will you be going to any football games wearing it?? That part of the commercial almost made me pee my pants when I saw it for the first time!

    And yes, I want one too!

  19. A client of mine is doing a survey and was looking for a prize to incent people to respond. We jokingly told them they should give away Snuggies. And they did! They even had their logo embroidered on the Snuggie. Of course, now I'm totally wanting one and am trying to get my client to give me one of theirs. :-)
