Black Friday deals for keeping cosy

Electric blankets are seeing high demand as energy prices soar and temperatures drop. Earlier this year, Martin Lewis suggested buying a heated blanket, which can cost around 3p an hour and just £1.37 a week, when used for seven hours per day.

There aren't many deals around yet, but if you do spot one, especially on Amazon, be sure to use price tracker CamelCamelCamel. This tool tracks prices on Amazon over time so you can ensure you're getting a good deal. Some offers may not be as strong as they first appear, especially if a product is in high demand.

Alternative products that are seeing increased demand in the lead up to Black Friday are microwavable slippers (yes, really!) and wearable blankets, such as those from leading brand Oodie.

Koala Oodie | £89 £54 at Oodie (save £35 or 39%)

Black Friday Oodie

What's the deal: A 39 per cent saving on the highly sought-after Oodie wearable blanket.

Why we chose it: While Oodies are extremely comfortable and a great way to keep warm when you're working from home, they are a little pricey. They typically cost £89, so if you're buying a few for the family, the price can quickly add up. There are so many designs to choose from (in both adult and kids sizes) and nearly all of them have discounts right now. Popular designs include Avocado, Dachshund, and Pizza, along with more classic designs like solid grey or pink.
