It's hard to imagine the world before blanket hoodies existed - but wearable blankets are definitely a thing now, loved by adults and kids alike for keeping cosy at home. They can be surprisingly pricey, though, so here's our pick of some of the best blanket hoodie bargains around.

With everyone talking about how much their energy bills will cost (opens in new tab) many people are worried about keeping warm this winter. Applying for the energy rebate (opens in new tab) and getting help with energy bills (opens in new tab) are important steps you can take. 

But it's also worth thinking about practical ways to keep everyone in your household warm when the weather gets colder - especially if you're contemplating ways to save energy (opens in new tab) such as turning down your thermostat or switching on your central heating less frequently. 

Kitting out the kids with basic winter essentials like thermal underwear or updating your hot water bottle collection can help - but requires an upfront cost. We're not suggesting you spend £20 on a new kettle to save £10 a year on your energy bill like Boris reportedly advised. But it might be worth steering the family towards blanket hoodies when it comes to writing Christmas wish lists. There aren't many items that can keep you toasty warm whilst also ensuring you're as cool as can be!
