*Review* The Little Angels First Blanket by Love Gemsy

When I received an email from the lovely Gemma at Love Gemsy, asking if I'd like to take a look at The Little Angels First Blanket, I was chuffed to bits!

I have a couple of pram blankets bought in already but the thought of a lovingly handmade unique blanket most definitely whet my whistle!

Look what arrived!....

The most delicately packaged blanket that I've ever seen. My first thoughts were how expensive it looks, swiftly followed by the same thought I often have with cake... looks far too good to spoil - I didn't want to open it! But, just as I am with cake of course, I did - slightly less salivating.

I pulled the length of the ribbon to reveal the blanket. I was unsure of what the pattern was supposed to be on first glance, but nonethless was greeted by a gender neutral taupe/grey quality natural cotton that just screamed to be touched. So before unboxing the blanket itself, I had a little feel of it's corner and to my surprise it was soft and fleecy on the inside.

Launching the box to one side, I pull the blanket up to my face and see that it's reversible. Such a soft rosebud effect fleece covers the other side. The pattern is now easily identifiable as a teddy bear print, it's title is "What a Cutie" and upon nosing at lovegemsy.co.uk there are other matching products to the First Blanket available in this series too.

There is the reversible cushion, (which I now need as a matter of urgency!) a comfort blankie, a fabric box framed print and even a personalised version too.

This isn't the only range/pattern, so if teddies aren't your thing or you want something a little more gender specific I would suggest you take a look at everything else there is to offer.

Oh, I did wonder how this was supposed to be cleaned, but to my relief, it's machine washable. You really wouldn't have thought so on touch!

Baby ain't here yet, so I've popped it inside the cot for now - it has finished the look of the cot off beautifully. I only have days to wait to use it... as if I'm not impatient enough as it is!!




Let's get down to price of this blanket. 

At £35 plus p&p it's on the more expensive side than I would usually browse for myself, but as a gift for someone - and knowing what they're going to be receiving, as I have experienced - this is more than suitable. In fact, I don't think you would get such a lovingly handmade, beautifully presented, quality item for any less anywhere else. 

Well... what do you think?!

  16. I think the teddy bear motif is my favourite, as you say, gender neutral. Perfect for little ones.

  24. I love that you made a cake reference. I think the blanket would last a long time as it looks like it is made from good quality material and as you say in this blog that it is so soft and has the bonus of being machine washable, it would certainly make an awesome gift.

  56. it is a lovely looking blanket, but a it costly, i think when people receive presents for their babies, they would rather the money was spent on something that may be a bit more useful, i would be happy to pay around £20 for it though

    ReplyDelete

  67. I do love the feel of these soft blankets. The fact that it is a gender neutral colour would make it a brilliant present for a baby shower when the sex of the baby isn't known :-)
