This year for our wedding anniversary, Ben and I had a pretty lean budget. I usually like to get Ben a big ticket item for an anniversary gift; something electronic or techno. This year, I was surfing around on a few of Ben's favorite tech sites and came across this:
No, it is not some creepy ritual robe. It is the Slanket - AKA the best blanket ever invented. It is a super soft polar fleece blanket with ARMS. Is this blowing your mind as well?? When I saw this, I had to buy it for Ben. We both always hate getting snuggled under a blanket and then having to reach an arm out to use the remote or bring our hands out to use the laptop. (That sentence made us sound like the laziest, wussiest people on earth, but it's true. And it is helping me illustrate my point. And I know you all feel the same way.) The blanket is extra long, and has a large piece of fleece that you can cozy up around your neck as well. The blanket is really large, which is nice because it will wrap all the way around if you want. Let's just say that Ben loved the gift, and probably wishes that I would have bought two because I love to use it also.
I highly recommend you get your hands on one of these if you are a lazy wuss like me. Or if you live with someone who thinks it is perfectly OK to set the thermostat at 65 in the winter. Or if you like to snuggle. You won't be disappointed!
