There's little more satisfying than snuggling up on the sofa with a hot chocolate and a warm blanket when it's cold out.
With temperatures set to drop in the next couple of weeks, now's the time to make sure you have everything you need to get through the chillier season, from a clever heated airer that dries your clothes efficiently, saving you both time and money, to all the cosy blankets to ensure you can keep your heating to a minimum due to the growing cost-of-living crisis.
If you currently find yourself still feeling the chill in your usual TV-viewing cocoon, we highly recommend you check out Marks & Spencer's Teddy Fleece Adults' Hooded Blanket, otherwise known as 'The M&S Snuggle'.
Having first launched last October, the blanket flew off shelves leading to numerous restocks - and it's already selling out, once again.
Gaining a flurry of five star reviews, with customers saying it made them feel "snug as a bug in a rug", here's why you should snap up this cosy autumn buy while you can.
Why we rate it
The M&S Snuggle has been designed to feel soft to touch, while helping you stay warm and cosy by trapping in your body heat, so no more breeze coming in from that gap in the blanket you can't find.
The hood also allows you to stay warm from head to toe on those really cold evenings when you're fresh out the shower.
Our favourite feature is the large kangaroo style pocket at the front, which is there for keeping hands warm or to just hold your snacks and phone, depending on your priorities.
Each hooded blanket comes in a small or large, on M&S' site the size small is worn by the female and large by the male model.
What the reviews say:
While many purchased the cosy blanket for themselves and family, others snapped up the affordable item as a great gift for a loved one this Christmas.
With over 550 reviews rating its cosiness and value for money, we think this is one autumn buy you won't want to miss.
