This blanket will make you wonder why all blankets don't have foot pockets. Seriously, once you slip your toes into this blanket with foot pockets, it'll immediately become your favorite. Think of all those times when your toes have slipped out from under the blanket and you have to readjust to ensure that you're comfortable again. This blanket resolves that issue. You can keep your shoulders and your feet covered at the same time, and you don't have to awkwardly fold your throw blanket under your feet like I've been doing all my life! Even when I'm moving around on my couch, reaching for the remote or the bowl of popcorn or my drink, This blanket stays wrapped around my feet and my body and I stay as relaxed as ever.
This blanket is velvety soft with a cute sherpa trim in the foot pocket. I love the bright, festive red color, perfect for the holidays! You'd be surprised at how warm this blanket is while still being lightweight. I had some concerns that the foot pocket wouldn't be deep enough, but it fits my womens size 9 foot with room to spare. I can only imagine how awesome this blanket would be at a tailgate, or while camping.
In addition, this blanket is a GREAT value. You cannot beat the price. I am writing this review as part of a contest, but I've seen similar styles of blanket at other stores for much more money. I'm going to buy one for my grandmother, who is perpetually cold. I think this would be a great item for someone who is aging or has mobility problems because should they shift while under their blanket, the foot pocket will stay on them, and they won't have to bend over to readjust it.
