You all know that I don’t review a lot of baby items here on my blog since my son is a teenager. However, sometimes there are items I learn about that I just love and I know I would give as a gift. The folks at Makaboo have lots of these types of items. If you visit Makaboo you can see all of the great gift items for newborn, baby, and toddler like Lovies, Blankets, Clothing, and more. Then you can personalize the items also! I love personalized items and with the unique names/spellings these days it can be hard to find something pre-made with the right name on it.
I was given the chance to pick out an item from the site and for my new cousin, Baby Kaydance; I selected an Angel Dear Napping Blanket in this adorable pink giraffe pattern. Her name is embroidered on the one edge also in more pink stitching. Placing the order on the Makaboo website was very simple and painless and I received confirmation emails right away and the order shipped right away. Thumbs up! Now normally I wouldn’t open an item up out of its package that was a gift, but I wanted to review this first. As soon as I untied the pretty ribbon and reached in I felt how super soft the material is – it is a 100% poly microfiber – and just so comfortable. This is just the perfect size for a little one to hang on to while they nap and to cover up with. The blanket part is 30”x30” and then the little animal head part is soft and squishy and they can use it as a pillow or just hang on to it for comfort. It is machine washable which is a must for anything the little ones hang on to (I remember that from when Taylor was little). This particular item sells for $34.99, including embroidery) and I feel it is well worth that price. I can’t wait to share this with Kaydance and I hope she loves it!
Everything I have seen with Makaboo so far would definitely lead me to recommend them to you all. I have the Makaboo.com website bookmarked so I can order from them again myself when I need a gift for a little one again.
