Make it a Harriet Carter Christmas

With the election over, it’s time to turn our thoughts to Christmas. Harriet Carter, a perennial favorite, offers some new and exciting products for the most discriminating buyer. Perfect gifts for people who already have everything and can take a joke.

    Bravo, JL. It’s been far too long since we’ve had a Harriet Carter post, and I for one am as pleased as Christmas punch at some of her new merchandise!

    I knew I had seen the Snuggie before. It was on Dame Judith Anderson in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.

    Well done JL.

    I actually watched that the other day Massimo, at least the cool parts on my DVR, and you are so right.

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that acclaimed British actors with “Sir” or “Dame” in front of their names must end their careers as immortals in Snuggies:

    Example 1

    Example 2

    Example 3

    Example 4

    Example 5

    Massimo, you’re totally on to something.

    “70% chance of hoarding cats”. Tell me those words just came to you like “Cracklin’ Rosie” came to Neil Diamond.

    Massimo, I’m amazed by your Snuggles Sleuth work!

    What’s the difference between a Snuggle and a Slanket? Aren’t the both blankets with sleeves?

    I’ve got dibs on the small puppy, bottom row, center. He would make a more than adequate substitute for the dog we have now should he succumb to his advanced years.

    jj, the Snuggle is Harriet’s response to the Slanket. Think of it as Coke vs. Pepsi. The Snuggle is the superior blanket as it is more robe-like in form. The Slanket, as its name suggests, is more like a fleece blanket. Much more cumbersome to move around with that one…

    THose wrap around cats are a little scary. Yikes!

  • 12. lemare  |  November 12, 2008 at 4:56 pm

    I can totally see Angela from the office having one!

    Loving the snuggle!

    Don’t Forget the guys! who could go without the Grille Daddy!

  • 15. lemare  |  November 18, 2008 at 4:33 pm

    The funniest thing about the Grill Daddy is the “you might also like” items listed below, such as suspenders and a condiment caddy.

  • […] admit that some of the luster has come off the Shamwow. I should have guessed, seeing as it has yet to appear in one of Harriet Carter’s catalogs. Still, if you have a hankering to buy one, I couldn’t look down on you, knowing how close I […]
