If you have never owned a hooded blanket before, you may not know that there are quite a few benefits to owning them over a typical regular blanket.
A couple of these benefits may be obvious, while others may surprise you. Once you do buy a hooded blanket, however, you will realize why they are usually a much better choice than the blankets you have owned in the past.
Heat does not escape from your body — One of the best things about owning a hooded blanket is that they are so much warmer than using a regular blanket.
This is generally due to the hood helping the heat stay inside the blanket, and preventing it from escaping via your head.
Perfect for winter and also perfect for saving on heating bills, as a hooded blanket will keep you feeling toasty even in the coldest weather.
Wonderful for camping — If you like to go camping, taking personalized hooded blankets with you will make your trip just that little bit nicer.
Hooded blankets are usually moisture-proof, so they are exceptionally useful for camping trips if you want to be sure you stay dry.
They also keep you warmer inside a tent as you can even wear them inside a sleeping bag.
Carrying less things on a camping trip — Many people go on a camping trip and not only need a blanket, they also need to take a sweatshirt, a hat and a scarf. Most of the time, all of these items will only be used inside the tent in an effort to stay warm.
With a hooded blanket, however, you can eliminate the need for a sweatshirt, a hat and a scarf. This means you have less things to pack away in your backpack, and less things to carry as you travel.
Useful for wearing around the house — If you do not want to spend money on heat, wearing a hooded blanket around the house is a great way to stay warm anyway.
Along with the hood, many of these blankets also have sleeves in them. This means you can actually wear them as you are doing jobs around the house, or even while you are sitting in front of the TV.
Staying warmer while you nap — Many people take a nap during the day as they leave you energized and ready to face the rest of the day.
Many also find it difficult to get a restful sleep as the sofa blanket they sleep under is often not heavy enough or warm enough.
A hooded blanket will solve that problem, as they tend to be thicker, warmer and more comfortable to sleep under.
