My sister-in-law was sent the most beautiful gift when she was pregnant. It was a SwankieBlankie gift set and a hooded baby towel with a cute rubber duck. It was kindly sent to her by Fiona from SwankieBlankie.co.uk so that she could use it with her new baby son when he arrived and then I could review it on my blog.
The gift set is absolutely beautiful! The presentation is second to none and it really did look like such a luxurious gift. The gift set was wrapped up in Swankie Blankie chevron print tissue paper and in the gift box was a blue Minky Dot baby blanket with satin trim and a matching small security blanket / comforter. The blanket retails at £48.00 and the mini security blanket at £24.00. The items were so well presented in the gift box and the box was secured shut by branded ribbon running diagonally across two corners of the box.
When these gifts first arrived from Swankie Blankie I could not wait to take them to my sister-in-law so we could take them out of the box and feel how plush and soft the baby blankets were. We were not disappointed! They were extremely snuggly and we knew straight away that the new baby would love them when he arrived ….and we were not wrong as he is now here and he does indeed adore them!
The baby receiving blanket measures a generous 31” x 36” and the little security blanket is 13.5” x 16” which is the ideal size for little one to hold on to and snuggle with.
The blanket gift set really is super luxurious and the minky fabric is so tactile. This would make an extra special new baby gift for someone who has just had a baby.
The blankets are still as soft now as when they first arrived however the ink of the ‘Swankie Blankie’ name on the label has disappeared a bit in places (after the blanket has been washed). This doesn’t affect the gorgeousness of the blanket in any way though!
As the blanket is such a generous size my nephew will be able to get a lot of use out of it….especially in this chilly weather!
The Swankie Blankie hooded baby towel that my nephew now uses is really lovely and soft and it retails at £36.00. I have seen him all wrapped up in this after the bath and it really is a wonderful towel. It’s a great size and it’s ideal for wrapping baby up when they get out of the bath. The minky hood is divine!
My brother and my sister-in-law both love the Swankie Blankie gifts! We all thought the addition of a cute rubber duck bath toy with the towel was such a lovely touch.
I chose to have the blue Minky Dot design for my nephew but there are loads of other fabric designs available in the Swankie Blankie range. Here are the links to all of them:-
I would like to say a huge thank you to Fiona for sending these blankets and towel to my nephew. These gifts were very much appreciated. 🙂
