Just when we thought a sleeping baby was the most adorable sight in the world, name blankets have come along and taken the sweetness to new heights.
A personalised blanket is a knitted, woven or fleecy piece of fabric adorned with a baby’s name. In a spectacular range of styles, from neutral cotton knits to printed fleece, these special blankies are perfectly sized to take everywhere and keep baby toasty from the cot to the pram and back again.
Totally photo-worthy, they make beautiful props for birth announcements.
