You might be wondering why I would be interesting in reviewing a baby blanket, I mean my youngest child is already 5. It just so happens that Fill in the Blankie contacted me at the most convenient time. My co-worker was just getting ready to have her baby girl. I figured this would be a great gift. I love personalized items and personalized baby blankets sounded like a great gift for the beautiful new addition. Also the name is just cute and makes me giggle!
What makes a personalized baby blanket from Sonya Bebeblankee such a unique & memorable gift?
“We personalize ‘em out the wha-zoo”
We’ll provide you with some inspiration — but, you’ve got up to 200 characters to express your warmest wishes for your newest bundle of joy.
“Each one is truly one-of-a-kind”
Your own copy combined with your choices of: (39) blanket styles/colors, (27) fonts & (18) thread colors ensure your baby blanket is as original as the little one who is lucky enough to carry one.
Every one of our baby blankets is made of 100% woven cotton, trimmed with 2 inches of the silkiest smooth satin you ever did see (or lay your hands on)
Once the new baby girl was born I went online to order my gift. The blankets come in choices of beautiful pastel colors that will compliment any nursery. We (another co-worker and I decided together) to go with the pink blanket with the ivory satin edges. For the threading that was going to give this blanket its uniqueness with our own personal message we chose chocolate brown.
The truly hardest part of the whole process was deciding on what font to use and what we wanted each side to say. I love that you can personalize all four sides of the baby blanket. Thankfully Fill in the Blankie has text suggestions for personalizing your baby blanket. This came in handing in guiding me to what I wanted my blanket to say.
My four sides consisted of the baby’s name and date of birth, a mention of her being a little sister, a mention of her mother and father, and lastly Sweet Dreams to the baby. My only disappointment was at the time of ordering there were no stuffed animals in stock to stuff my blankie with. I guess that is what happens when something is popular. My blanket arrived in this cute bag, which was great because it meant no wrapping on my part.
Unfortunately (I hate to do reviews with out a lot of great photos), I did not get a lot of photos because this was a gift and the blanket was so neatly wrapped when it came in I just did not want to open it up for a photo shot. I was so afraid I wouldn’t be able to get it back to the cute little bundle that had arrived. (Note: I blurred out some of the name for privacy purposes)
The truth is I would have LOVED to have a baby blanket like this for my daughter this is a great keepsake. The softest of the blanket was unbelievable. The style we chose by the way was the “Natalie’s On Cloud Nine” and I highly recommend that this is the one you chose. I really wish I had my own Fill In the Blankie. In fact that is a great suggestion, maybe they should expand to beyond just baby blankets (hint, hint)
