Last week I posted about a Lands End bag…
This week I’m going to go Lands End again.
Crazy, I know.
Today’s TIL is another baby gift I received that I have since given to other new moms.
When Mr. Pickle was born, he received this lovely Scottish lace blanket. It was monogrammed with his name and birthday. It was soft and lovely, and the perfect light summer layer, when opened all the way up, or slightly warmer fall layer when doubled up. He still uses this blanket at daycare. He is a sweaty kiddo, and the light, cuddly, soft layer is just what he needs at naptime. Plus, it launders really well, so I can get the daycare germy ickies off of it each week. My only gripe is that the monogram looks a little cheesy on the reverse side, since the blanket is so lightweight.
Imagine my excitement when the same friend sent the pink version of the blanket to Miss Plum B! Equally lovely and soft, and I sure am a sucker for a monogram.
There are three choices for this blanket, the pink bunnies (9 squares), the blue trucks (9 squares) or the teddy bear blanket, which is one big teddy bear design, that comes in white, blue or pink. They cost $25 each and can be monogrammed for $6 more. Like last week, I advise you to look around for a promo code or Lands End sale – you can often get free shipping and a percentage off. If you’re shipping directly to a new mom, skip the gift box option for another $6, because the gift box is lost on a new mom, and you already get to open the shipping packaging!
PS – As noted previously, Lands End doesn’t know me. Actually, I’m pretty sure no one in Wisconsin knows me. Wait, maybe one person does. Anywho, I just really like these blankets, and that bag, and some other really good Lands End stuff.
