superdumb supervillain: Snuggle in a Slanket

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

Snuggle in a Slanket

winner: Smiles Across Miles




The Slanket is one of those ideas you initially think is silly but upon further inspection, you wonder how you ever lived without it. It is essentially a fleece blanket with sleeves but its simplicity belies its supreme coziness. I am certain I am not the only one who has struggled with keeping a blanket over my shoulders while trying to read a book or flip channels with a remote… the cold chill in the air means it's Slanket season!



Now, I know this Tea Party is supposed to be lady-centric, but I'd like to point out that there are now kid-sized Slankets available, too. Roo is constantly making me drape blankets around her, so a Slanket Kids model would be a great gift for her.



To enter and win a Slanket (a $45 value), please visit their website and comment on this post with your favorite color. Let me know if there is a special color or print you'd like to see on a Slanket.


Entries will be accepted through November 26th and I'll pick the winner using Random.org. US readers are eligible. Only one entry/comment per person, please.


For an additional entry, post my button on your blog, fave me on Technorati or subscribe via email or subscribe via reader and leave an extra comment letting me know. You may also leave an extra comment with your favorite non-Tea Party post from any of my co-hosts' blogs! Just visit Angie, Candice, Cheryl, Kathleen, or Kristin, read a bit, and leave the URL in a separate comment– that's up to five extra chances to win in each giveaway!

  3. I'd get it in pink, although I'm not a pink person. I think it would be fun to have some thing different.
    I also love plaids and paisleys, if they could find or make the fabric. And lots of people like animal prints.

  11. I'm still just scraping the surface of all these wonderful archives, but I was so excited when I saw Mom Most Traveled's post about the WannaBe bag from Ju-Ju-Be. I might have to get it before our trip to TX in December.

  12. I've been eyeing a slanket for my husband for a while now. He doesn't know it though. But I want to get him one for Christmas. He's always complaining how cold it is in our apartment, while I'm fanning myself off. LOL

    I like the Castlerock color .... If they had a green paisley or retro print I'd be all over it. For ME! Not him! =)

    ReplyDelete
  13. i would love to see a slanket in lilac with snowflakes, a bit whimsical but still SO cozy!

    ReplyDelete

  19. I'd want a slanket in hunter green! I'd love to see patterns, like plaids, and college-themed slankets would be fun, too.

  22. Castle Rock is my fave, but it's sold out. Next is Texas Tea. I'm generally not a sports fan, but my husband is - so if they made them in Team themes (Hook em Horns!), he'd be really into them.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like the Moss Green color the best, but I'd love to see one done in a tie-dye pattern too.

  24. I tried to get one of these last Christmas and they were SOLD OUT everywhere! I like the "limoges" color.

    I agree with someone else, college ones would sell like crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  25. This is a great idea, especially for my husband who is always cold. I'd probably go for the brown, since he likes to think he has monk-tendencies.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love them all. I fall asleep on the couch in front of the TV all the time and wake up cold. This is definitely for ME! The limoges or chocolate would be perfect!
    Please and thank you. (Mom always told me to say that - it would get me anywhere in life.)

    ReplyDelete
  27. My mom would love to rock the Slanket!
    Actually I think I want to keep it for myself.
    I'd go with "moss green"!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I like the beige one.

    I think they should make a cute pink and brown one for little girls.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like the Pink Lavender best. Thanks!

  30. I was going to pick a neutral color because I soooo know that my husband would hog this however I've decided that BECAUSE he would hog this, I'd chose the Ruby Wine color. Thanks for the chance to win one!

I thought I was great!

  166. I'd love this in moss green, so cool! I think it would be cool if there were prints with dragonflies or seashells. I know that's summery, but sometimes you just want to be taken back to summer and be warm at the same time. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  167. I would love it in chocolate, but prints would be good, animal prints or a beautiful paisley.
