Slanket Review and Giveaway!!


I recently received a really neat product for review, called the Slanket. Now I’m sure most of you, like me, have heard of the Slanket; but I never realized just how handy this was until I used it myself. It’s a blanket with sleeves, and is a must-have for cuddling up on a cool night. While the weather here is finally warming up, we are still experiencing some cooler evenings, and the Slanket has been great for these. Mine is a cranberry red, and it is so soft and cozy. I love the extra long length, since most throw blankets just aren’t long enough to cover all the way down to my feet. This is plenty long, and big enough to really snuggle into! It is great for curling up on the couch with a cup of tea or cocoa, and a good book to read...can we say a perfect evening?! 
The only problem I have with the Slanket? My little sister keeps stealing mine! Seriously, she puts it on almost every evening, and then uses it like a robe in the mornings! It’s hard to get her out of it and into real clothing each day! I think I have an idea for her birthday, now though :)


  
I told you she stole it!
"One subzero night in 1998 during my first semester of college I could not escape Maine's winter bite. While watching Late Night with Conan O'Brien I decided I needed to tear a hole in my sleeping bag so I could keep my upper body warm as I channel surfed during the commercial breaks. During Christmas vacation I commissioned the first Slanket to be made by my mother...and it was born.

Everyone behind The Slanket is on the same level when it comes to life. Besides creating a product to make people comfortable and warm, our life goals are not to accumulate mansions, SUV's, expensive watches and closets just for shoes. What we want in life is to travel the world and experience all its cultures while representing humanity positively. Whether surfing in Costa Rica, snowboarding in Austria, or studying language in South America and China, we love to spread our sleeves and let them flap in the wind, giving back in the process. BUT... there is nothing like coming home, wrapping up in The Slanket on your own couch and feeling the warmth of your friends and family."
