At the same time, though, I can enjoy all of the baby fever going around by finding amazing baby shower gifts to give to expecting loved ones. I love the anticipation of welcoming a new bundle of joy into the world. There's nothing more fun than shopping for teensy, tiny little outfits, bibs, and plush toys for the new arrival. Oh, and one can't forget soft, snuggly blankies! Every baby needs their own special blanket.
I was definitely a "blankie girl" when I was little. I had 2 blankets, a blue one and a yellow one, that I carried with me everywhere. I was so attached to my special blankies, I had a hard time giving them up. I am pretty certain that my mother had to slowly cut them down until there was nothing left! So needless to say, baby blankets hold a special place in my heart, and I think every kid needs to have one of their own.
Recently, I got the opportunity to review the luxurious, plush blankets from Minky Couture. Now these blankets take comfort to a whole new level! Not only are the blankets at Minky Couture ridiculously soft since they're lovingly crafted from the highest quality minky and trimmed with elegant satin. These blankets come in amazingly beautiful colors and prints, and cater to every style from demure and pretty to wild and sassy.
Minky Couture blankets also come in a wide variety of sizes, from baby all the way to adult sizes! This is awesome, because they make a great gift for everyone in the family. The quality of construction is amazing, and these blankets are made to last for many years. They even retain their signature softness after every wash! This is fantastic, since so many blankets lose their luxurious feel after being laundered. The folks at Minky Couture have somehow found a way around that common issue, making a product that feels plush and cozy indefinitely.
Another great thing about Minky Couture is that, while there are several ready to ship blankets in beautiful colors and prints, they can also be custom made to your specifications. So if you can dream it, chances are, Minky Couture can make it a reality. How cool is that?!
The blanket I received is Tween sized, at a generous 36" by 50". No worries about my princess outgrowing her Minky Couture anytime soon! I was completely astounded by the level of velvety softness in this blanket, and Sophie loves it, too. In fact, she sleeps with it every single night and carries it around with her during the day. She will even wrap herself up in it while sitting on the couch, "reading" her books.
I could go on and on about how spectacular this blanket is, but I think it's better that you see it for yourself. Words simply cannot do Minky Couture justice the way that photographs can!
