People collectively freaked out in the late ‘90s when the Snuggie was invented. Since then, a slew of wearable blankets have hit the market. Catalonia makes a host of warm, fuzzy blankets that double as outerwear — and the cozy wonders are on sale at Amazon for up to 36 percent off!
These irresistible blankets are an amazing way to keep warm while you do just about anything, from working from home to hardly working to watching the big game outside. Tend to run on the chilly side? You need one! (Also, you’ll be the only one at the football game who is actually warm.)

Think of this oversized blanket as a warmer, cozier hoodie. Oo one side you'll get a plush Sherpa; on the other, a smooth micro-fleece. An extra-large front pocket keeps your hands warm, while a smaller pocket inside holds your phone, remote and more. “This is the best thing I have ever bought myself. The material is amazing,” one five-star reviewer wrote.
Part poncho, part blanket, all amazing, this wearable blanket poncho will keep you nice and toasty. A cool feature — as if it’s possible to top the idea of a blanket poncho — is that it can double as a fleece throw. Just close the neck hole’s magnetic snaps, and you’re good to go. “I probably have an obsession with blankets but this one is my favorite. I wear it anytime I'm in the house,” one happy reviewer wrote, calling her poncho “instant bliss.”
Searching for a gift for that holiday lover in your life (or maybe even yourself)? Look no further. This holiday-themed blanket has a red body and white Sherpa sleeves for a serious Santa vibe. A handy big front pouch lets you store your phone or remote.
“If I had to describe this blanket in four words I would have to go with: Comfortable, Versatile, Stylish and COMFORTABLE,” a satisfied reviewer wrote. “The fleece is terrifically warm and it makes hanging out in the living room with friends or family a much more enjoyable experience.”
It can even double as a last-minute Mrs. Claus costume.
