Can I just buy everyone an oodie or similar for Christmas or do you think everyone who wants one will have one by December?

That's what I'm buying my family for christmas this year, I know none of them have one or will be likely to buy themselves one on the run up to christmas. I also know they'll all wear them too, including my mum who started of saying she wouldn't wear one but has changed her mind, I've managed to find her a shorter length one in her fav colour cream (Ony from JL). I'm hoping dh buys me one! Jan through to March are always the coldest months.

Just to say, they're great if you're always cold like me! I have three Oodies and two Oodie sleep tees.

Kuddly have huge reductions just now if you buy 4.
Usually on fb.

Everyone already has one, but it's going to be a lot colder this winter so having one to wash will be good

Good point I imagine they take a while to dry?

Am I the only one gobsmacked at the price of these? Just looked at Kuddly(?) and they're £59 reduced from an eye-popping £80!

Any budget options??

Kuddly 2 for £59. Like pp said better offers if you buy in bulk. Both oodie and kuddly are always on offer. I've bought for gifts this Christmas 2 oodies and 2 kuddlys and I've also bought ONY from John lewis which is under £40 and has great reviews. They also do a childs version which is just as warm but shorter in length if your worried about kids tripping up in them. Downside no jazzy patterns.

M&S do some. I imagine primark will do a version. Aldi or Lidl did a version last year.

I bought myself an oodie last month in prep for the winter.

If you avoid the licensed stuff and get one of their own designs they’re pretty much always £49 each, unless you buy in bulk when it’s cheaper again. I don’t know when their “sales” finish, as I’ve never seen them selling at the RRP they have on their website!

It was dear for what is essentially a wearable blanket, but I have to say it’s much better quality than the cheaper dupes I’ve seen.

They’ve just come out with a more grown up range of plain boucle loungewear which might suit people who baulk at wearing the original design!

I bought one a month ago in a charity shop. It was on the sale rail and I got it for £1! I couldn't believe my luck!

I'm looking at these thanks to mumsnet!
When reading the reviews some say they are thicker than others.
For example a review on the love heart oodie says the love heart one is thicker than another design.
Does anyone have a couple and can confirm? I thought they would all be same thickness?

I have three and they're all the same thickness.

I have a Kuddly and absolutely love it after initially feeling a bit stupid wearing it..... it's a godsend in the winter and also when camping. To be honest I'd be pleased to receive another one so I could swap over when it needed washing etc. They can take quite a bit of time to dry.

Perfect thanks. I was worried they were the sort of thing where if you have one you don't need another. Do you think I could wear one to work in the office haha! They sound so snug.

The Kudd.ly ones are often on offer at 5poundstuff.com for about £12. Posters on other threads have mentioned they come in packaging with the name on, and I have managed to find at least two current designs on there...
