"Stripy Company baby blanket...best blanket I've bought!…"
I bought a blanket from the Stripy Company's website when my son was a little baby and we both love it, it's cotton and washes really well, it's just the right size to carry around, have in the pram/pushchair/car/cot... my baby has grown into a young boy of 4 years old now and he has it on his lap whilst snuggling on the sofa and he takes it with him when we visit friends, it's become a real comforter.Read moreLess

I bought recently one of La Millou's Handmade Organic Baby Blankets and simply Luv It!!! I got the Strawberry Fields themed blanket which is unbelievably soft and snugly and most of all, so colorful. It definitely makes my baby and buggy stand out from the crowd! I bought it online from www.peekaboo.co.uk and although it comes with a price tag it was money well spent!Read moreLess

"I love the Stripy Company Blankets. The knitted 100% cotton…"
I love the Stripy Company Blankets. The knitted 100% cotton blankets are big enough to use as a swaddeling blanket for newborns but also warm enough to use as a pram blanket so you can use them from birth but still be using them when they are toddlers. My children use them on car journey. They wash really well tooRead moreLess

"I bought a crocheted granny squares blanket from Rocket and…"
I bought a crocheted granny squares blanket from Rocket and Bear last month in a timely fashion, even though I live in Northern California and it had been holiday season. I have to confess it was a present for myself. Since receiving it, I've enjoyed precious "alone time," crashed on the sofa with my blanket, tea, and a good read or movie. The colors are so cheerful and hip: my boys keep trying to use it. I follow the affixed label in terms of care, as it's a quality item (obviously made with care) and I cherish it. I definitely will be ordering more blankets in future!Read moreLess
"I was absolutely thrilled when I found Lucy's Rocket and…"
I was absolutely thrilled when I found Lucy's Rocket and Bear! I have a boutique baby gift business in Toronto, Canada, and I strive to find handmade, quality gifts for my customers. I'm always looking for the 'perfect' baby blanket, and I know that I've finally found that in Lucy's shop. Recently I took one of Lucy's sensational blankets to a baby shower, which was clearly the showstopper of the day when all the ladies were in awe when mom-to-be pulled it out of its wrapping. You simply can not go wrong with the vibrant fun and quality that Lucy lovingly puts into her blankets. I will be a faithful customer at Rocket and Bear foreverRead moreLess

"I have three blankets from Rocket and Bear and my…"
I have three blankets from Rocket and Bear and my children love them. They have them on their beds but insist on taking them in the car if we are going on a long journey. They are beautifully made and definitely among my favourite things that I have ever got for my children. Rocket and Bear products are hand made by Lucy Gulotti and the website is well worth looking at. She also makes great t-shirts with your child's favourite teddy printed on them. Great products.Read moreLess

"I bought a blanket from rocketandbear via Etsy as a…"
I bought a blanket from rocketandbear via Etsy as a gift for my god-daughter. It was beautiful, with that fantastic soft homemade feel. The colours and textures (with little baubles) were great for the baby. My sister-in law said it was one of the best and most useful gifts she received - it is always on hand to throw over the baby in the car seat or the buggy and seems to go everywhere with them!Read moreLess

I bought a blanket from www.rocketandbear.com I wanted a handmade blanket that I might have made myself if I'd had the time or the know how. Lucy makes all her blankets and shes ace! Its a few years old now and a firm favorite with my small friend really think wool with crochet around the edge just lush and easy to look after its like my dads old woolly jumper and I love it nearly as much as my boy. I would recommend her to anyone she does great T shirts too!Read moreLess

"Comments from Mumsnetters: A baby blanket is "one of those…"
Comments from Mumsnetters: A baby blanket is "one of those things that does loads of jobs in one. It's brilliant as a shawl, a blanket for the pushchair and, as they get older, a play mat". "These from Hippins are lovely gifts as they are personalised". They work really well as swaddling blankets or simply as something attractive to wrap around your little newborn if you can't face struggling with cardigans and coats". Alternatively you could splash out on a "luxurious cashmere one from Brora", or for the more practically-minded a fleece version which is "easily washed".Read moreLess

I bought a personalised blanket from www.cashmeretots.co.uk & i have to say its the most adorable thing ever!!! I bought it for my best friends baby & its the softest most more'ish thing ever!!! I want one myself!! Wish they did them in adult sizes, I could just see myself wrapped up on the couch in one of them, although i could never afford it!! My friend loves it & says she'll use it for years, it's so hard to find lifelong gifts for a baby. anyway, i totally recommend them, great service & a great idea.Read moreLess

"I recently ordered a personalised blanket from hippins for a…"
I recently ordered a personalised blanket from hippins for a friend's baby. The quality was excellent and with a range of colours to choose from. The only downside is having to wait 14 days for delivery and having to wait until you know the baby's name you cant order in advance. It was worth the wait because it came beautifully packaged and immediately became that baby's special pram blanket and was big enough to grow with him into childhood.Read moreLess

You can also use it as a sheet and I've seen some little ones using it as their soother-type thing. What's more, it's dead pretty!Read moreLess

We were lucky enough to receive a couple of hand-made blankets (knitted and crocheted) which we will keep for baby Sonny - they made a lovely personalised present. For one, I bought some wool and my grandmother knitted "squares" and my mother sewed them into a blanket, then when we need a bigger blanket (maybe for his bed) I'll get them to knit some more and just extend it!Read moreLess
