I remember when I very first saw a mermaid blanket on Instagram, my initial reaction was "Oh my god, I need one!" So you can imagine my joy when I was very kindly sent one. Not only is the mermaid blanket a fun idea but it is also very practical. I love getting snuggly under a blanket to watch a movie or read a book but the one problem I always seem to have is the blanket falling off my feet or them poking out the bottom. I always find this so annoying as my feet are the part of body that need the most warmth, no matter what time of the year it is my feet are always like blocks of ice. The mermaid tail on this blanket though keeps my feet all cosy and wrapped up, no falling off or toes popping out the bottom, problem solved!
These blankets seem to be popping up everywhere now and are available in various colours and sizes. I was kindly sent one from wish.com and it was an absolute steal for £10 and to say it came from outside the UK delivery was pretty quick. Also the quality is fantastic, it's a lovely chunky knit. I think they'd make a great Christmas gift for any girl to get snuggly under by the fire. Even Teddy has fallen in love with it, as you can see.
