Fintastic blankets and where to find them
Snuggling up on the sofa has taken a marine twist, as mermaid blankets have become the biggest trend of winter lounging so far.
Snuggies have had their day, and now the world is choosing to slip themselves into tail blankets. The mermaid trend has been an Instagram hit, and thousands of women are posing with the colourful covers.
These blankets are just what we need for cosy nights in – they are bright and cheery, and there’s no chance of heat escaping from our feet. We can rest out fins up on the sofa, all the while pretending to bask on some rocks on the seashore. Getting up to make a cup of tea could require a bit of hopping through the house though.
Independent and high street stores are hauling in stocks of the blankets for Christmas gifting, here’s where you can get yours in Donegal. They’re in high demand, so if you spot a mermaid tail near you, let us know firstname.lastname@example.org.
McElhinneys in Ballybofey have knitted versions, in this marine teal colour:
They also have mini ones for the little kippers, selling for €19.95
Sequin Cinderella Boutique in Buncrana are stocking some bright shades.
New Look have a Snowflake edition, as well as other colours, and they’re 50% off today for less than €20! We’ve never heard of a Christmas mermaid before, but when there are Santas riding unicorns, anything goes this year.
Penneys have jumped onto the trend too. So we can channel our mermaid vibes on a budget. At €14, the price is fintastic! (sorry)
