Just when we thought a sleeping baby was the most adorable sight in the world, personalised name blankets have come along and taken the sweetness to new heights.
Personalised blankets are large knitted or woven pieces of fabric adorned with a baby’s name, age, initials or date of birth. Perfectly sized to take everywhere, they come in lush materials like cotton, wool and Minky to keep babies snug from the cot to the pram and back again. Totally photo-worthy, they make beautiful props for birth announcements.
To help you find that unforgettable newborn gift or special addition for the nursery, we’ve handpicked a selection of custom blankets that will have you swooning for days.
