There is something really lovely about having everyday items personalised for your baby. Not only does it make them more special but it then makes that item unique and individual to any other. My 1st Years is a company that does just that! They sell a variety of products from teddies and clothes to toys and décor. The pricing is really reasonable and each gift comes with a free gift box; for me I love the way and item is packaged so this is a huge plus! The quality of their products is brilliant and I am going to tell you in a little bit more detail about a blanket we have been reviewing from My 1st Years.
Amelia and I were sent this gorgeous pink fleece blanket with the floral trim. Above the chosen personalisation is also an appliqué floral teddy which I really love! You can have up to 12 characters on your personalisation and it doesn’t have to be your babies name!
I got so excited when the parcel arrived and opening it to see the signature luxury gift box really made my day. The blanket was wrapped in tissue and then the blanket itself has a little piece of the floral fabric complete with button to hold the blanket together when folded.
The blanket is a great size measuring 75cm x 100cm and is 100% polyester.
The blanket has had multiple uses for us so far; in her pram, in her cot and to just snuggle up with as it really is so soft! It is perfect size for an extra layer in Amelia’s cot with the colder weather, although its main use has been as a blanket for when we are out with the pram. Most of the blankets I have are much bigger and even if they were folded just wouldn’t tuck in right or stay in the pram. Now she’s bigger and sits right up there isn’t as much space in the Quinny to tuck a blanket in and all the bigger ones drag along the floor or get caught up in the front wheel. As this is perfect size it does not do this plus it looks super cute with her name on it.
Amelia was poorly here and this blanket was so nice to cuddle up too!
I have washed the blanket and it washes and dries really well and looks brand new so that is another plus as babies seem to get grubby hands on everything no matter how precious it is!
I can see this blanket being a feature in Amelia’s room as a little throw over the end of her bed or inside her little tepee. It is definitely an item that will be around for a long time not just because of its quality but because of how gorgeous it is and how special it is to have her name on it.
You can get this fleecy blanket in three different colours; pink, blue and cream and there are a variety of text colours you can choose for your personalisation. My 1st Years also do other blankets in knit, cashmere and in different sizes.
For me My 1st Years is the whole package and not just the product. I love the website it is really easy to navigate and the checkout process is simple and fast. Quick delivery and then the products arrival in a beautiful box complete with bow really demonstrates the company’s attention to detail and shows the care put into each of their products.
This blanket gets a massive thumbs up from us and it definitely won’t be the last thing I get from My 1st Years (I already have my eye on a few bits for Christmas!)
If you are after a gift for your baby or a friend’s baby /toddler this year this is definitely the place to shop. It even comes gift wrapped and I am pretty sure every Mum and Dad out there wouldn’t mind a few of these boxes stacked up under the tree!
