My current one, while very warm and snuggly, is 3 sizes too big and makes me look like Sully from Monsters Inc grin
I'd really like to ask for one for Christmas but need to give a few pointers. Anyone able to help at all?
It needs to be at least below knee length and snuggly.

The White Comapny do a fantastic warm chenille one with a hood that comes down to my ankles - really soft and snuggly - they do a lovely catalogue with loads of gorgeous things in it!! (Unfortunately i'm only able to window shop the catalogue now but would highly recommend it to anyone who isnt restricted to window shopping!!)

I also have a White Company one, not chenille. It's kind of towelling on the inside only iyswim. Had it 7 years and it's good as new.

Ooh thanks for that recommendation. Really like their classic one in dark grey. Would have thought their prices would be way out of my price range but not as much as I was expecting.

The boden one is really nice. I got last seasons in the sale and its not been off my back, its very snuggly but only knee length

I think mine is an M&S one. The kids bought it for Christmas for me last year. It is so snuggly and soft that when I am in it, I'm almost guaranteed 2 little monsters snuggling up to me!

The White Company towelling one isn't worth the money (though I think this is different to the one others are suggesting) - I have it in small and the arms are really bulky hmm. I know that sounds a bit odd but it really does matter and makes it uncomfortable to wear!

I got mine in the La Senza sale- big fluffy spotty thing. It washes very well and it's nice and comfy.

Previous to that I swore by M&S robes though

the boden one is suprisingly nice but would never buy full price

Another vote for the white company chenile one - i bought it in the chocolate colour last year and tis gorgeous.
