Fill in the Blankie Review

There are so many special moments in our lives, particularly when it comes to our children. Being that it was my son’s first Christmas, I was anxious to make it special even though he is too little to understand what it all means. I wanted to find the perfect gift that he can have in years to come to commemorate his very first Christmas. Fill in the Blankie is the ideal choice for the ultimate in personalized baby blankets. I could not be more pleased with the blanket I received from them! I know we will treasure it throughout our son’s childhood.

I think the first thing that caught my attention about the Fill in the Blankie site is how easy and fun it is to begin customizing your own special blanket. Every blanket is trimmed with satin and is embroidered with the message of your choice along all four sides. This is way more than a monogrammed baby blanket. You have up to 200 characters (50 characters per side) to express whatever sentiments you wish! I love how the site allows you to create a completely original personalization, but it also gives you many pre-written options to choose from which really help if you need inspiration. There are 8 styles of blankets to choose from and many beautiful color choices for each of the styles. I chose Natalie’s On Cloud Nine in chocolate brown with ivory colored satin. This 30” x 30” sized blanket is perfectly plush and luxuriously soft to the touch. I was so excited to have my choice of 18 fonts and 18 colors for the embroidery (including glow in the dark options). You can also choose to have an icon embroidered on your blanket, such as a heart, cross, butterfly, etc. For a fun finishing touch, choose a super soft stuffed animal and Fill in the Blankie will tuck it inside your blanket so that it is peeping out at you when it arrives! My son and I adore “Brownie the Pig” who is every bit as soft as the blanket he arrived in! The whole process of creating my blanket was so exciting and this makes the resulting product all the more special to me.

Let your imagination run wild! Fill in the Blankie has ideas for every occasion and prices for any budget. This site isn’t just for newborn baby blankets. They also do baptism and christening gifts, holidays, birthdays- pretty much any occasion you can think up! The prices range from $39-$145, making this an excellent gift option for every budget. All prices are with embroidery included! They also have the option of gift wrap to add that special touch. Considering that these blankets are custom made to your specifications, production time is a fast 5-8 days or if you are tight on time choose rush production and it will ship within 3 days. This would make an excellent gift for the holidays. They also have gift certificates available. Go to Fill in the Blankie today to browse their full selection of styles, colors, fonts and designs!
