The Slanket Fleece Blanket – The Perfect Gift For Bloggers and Computer Programmers

The Slanket
For those of you who spend a lot of time at the computer you know that blankets and computers don’t go well together, because you have to expose your arms to get at the keys.  I have a solution to that problem. Introducing the Slanket: Cold weather comfort for bloggers, writers and programmers.

The Slanket is a gigantic fleece blanket with sleeves that easily covers a wearer of any size.
Slanket

I had the pleasure of receiving a Slanket to test out and review.

The moment I received it I had two men arguing over it, so it looks as though I’ll be ordering a second Slanket for my son.

Slanket

My husband is not parting with the one I was sent. He absolutely in love with his new Slanket. Though the Slanket was designed to wear backwards, my hubby wears it forward like a housecoat. It works extremely well worn either way.

Slanket

Not only is The Slanket great with its open, free hands, but it’s super warm and snugly. Its over sized so you can even snuggle with your  pet under the blanket.  Compared to other blankets with sleeves, the original Slanket tops them, as  Slankets are made with a much higher quality fleece.

Now my husband is not a blogger, but he is a computer programmer who spends endless hours at the computer writing code.

So while he is wrapped in incredible warmth with his Slanket, I’m sitting here chilled writing this review. On second thought,  I think I need to order two more instead of just one.

Sleeved blanket

Gary, creator of the Slanket donates a portion of sales from every Slanket sold to three different organizations; NRDC, H20 Africa, and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The Slanket is available in a variety of colors and patterns through TheSlanket.com. The Slanket also carries a line of Slankets for children, a Slanket for travel and the Slanket Siamese- a Slanket built for two, which would be perfect for Valentine’s Day if the website were not out of stock.

Any brand of Slanket would make for a  warm and cozy gift though and I  highly recommend them for a Valentines gift for your sweetie or yourself. Are you anti-Valentine’s day? Cozy up with a Slanket and watch War of the Roses.

Stop becoming restricted by a standard blanket; buy a Slanket right now from theslanket.com. Also available  for sale at Amazon.com.
