I've got a slightly different post than normal today, and I think I will share this type of post more often as I am quite renowned for my gift giving skills.
I started a tradition a few years back when my friend had her first baby, I gave her a personalised fleecy blanket. It has now got to the stage that people expect to receive one of these blankets from me.
This blanket came with a cute little teddy bear rattle and was beautifully packaged. The listing shows the only customisation as the name, but I asked for the date of birth to be included to and it wasn't a problem at all, I think they are pretty flexible with the customisation. The blanket arrived quickly and in perfect condition. The photos were taken straight after opening and therefore show exactly how it arrived.
I bought the blanket from this eBay listing for £12.99 + £3 P&P. The seller has a wide variety of personalised blankets and there are also plenty of others available on eBay.
Is there a gift that people have come to expect from you? What do you tend to buy for newborns?
