My husband, Ken, never asks for holiday or birthday presents. With the exception of books and certain gadgets, he’s just not all that into stuff. So when he asked me for a blanket to use when he sits on the chaise in his office, I was thrilled. I knew that a regular sized blanket would be too large, so I looked at something I’ve never considered buying before: a throw.
The Pottery Barn Essential Cozy Throw had me at first touch. It’s amazingly soft and cuddly. Ken thought it was perfect for wrapping around himself when paying the bills or reading. Yep, he loved having it on the chaise for the 3 or 4 days before I stole it. Yep, I stole it. It was just too darn cozy to pass up. Sorry, honey.
Now the throw lives on our bed so I can snuggle under it when I read, watch tv, or cuddle with the kids. It looks a little funny when I make the bed. I try to drape it artistically; it looks a little foolish, but who cares? It doesn’t stay like that for very long anyway because the kids love playing in, under, and with it.
Moral of the story: the PB Cozy Throw makes a great gift for loved ones…or just for yourself.
