There's nothing more satisfying than snuggling up on the sofa with a hot chocolate and a warm blanket while it's freezing outside.

With temperatures set to drop in the next couple of weeks, now is the time to make sure your home is cosy enough.

That's why we were delighted when M&S released 'The M&S Snuggle™' otherwise known as a Teddy Fleece Adults' Hooded Blanket back in October.

Unsurprisingly the cosy item proved popular, selling out numerous times and gaining a flurry of five star reviews, one customer saying it made them feel "snug as a bug in a rug".

Why we rate it

The M&S Snuggle™ feels snug to touch and traps in body heat, so no more breeze coming in from that gap in the blanket you can't find. A hood also allows you to stay warm from head to toe on those really cold evenings.

It's also made of 100% polyester, which is one of the best materials for cold weather because it keeps cold air out and any warmth your body emits in.

Our favourite thing is that the design features a large kangaroo pocket for keeping hands warm, or it could just hold your snacks and phone, depending on your priorities.

Amazingly, it's machine washable at 40 degrees and you can even pop it in the tumble dryer at low temperatures, so you don't have to worry about a difficult drying process.

We also love that fact that's unisex, with two colours to choose from - grey and natural - and it comes in a small or large for your convenience.

What the reviews say:

While many purchased it for themselves and family, others snapped up the affordable item to make a great gift for a loved one this Christmas.

  • "Wonderful gift to myself. Fell asleep in it already! Lovely warm fabric, thick and mottled. Very happy with my purchase!"

  • "I brought two for my sons for Christmas. Soft and warm especially in the winter months!!"

  • "Lovely, soft and cozy. Can't wait for the cold nights in over the winter to wrap up in front of the telly or reading in bed!"

  • "Simply amazing, so soft and cuddly. I bought two so my partner could enjoy the snuggly benefits as well. Tip: buy a large if you want extra fleece to cuddle up in."

Plus, did we mention you'll feel like a cuddly teddy?

It's also not the only hooded blanket design M&S has created ready for winter, there are also matching options for kids, as well as a Percy Pig creation and adult 'Santa Paws' design which would be ideal for Christmas.
