Here are some of our favourite pieces:

Personalised Baby Name Blanket

These classic name blankets are made from the highest quality minky, a soft fleece material. They're reversible, with a choice of patterns on one side, and a name on the other. They're also machine washable and come in a range of sizes from small enough to fit a bassinet, to big enough for a picnic rug.

They come in a range of prints, including construction vehicles, unicorns, sunflowers and dinosaurs, and you can customise them to include the name you want. They're available for ages one to 10.
