How’s this for a sweet idea? Beautifully crafted, personalised blankets and knits for babies and children, all wrapped up to look like giant butterscotch lollies – just delicious!
While researching this post, I’ll happily admit I got waylaid for some time, trawling through the seemingly endless options available from the adorable Butterscotch Blankees. Their wares include custom designed and handcrafted blankets, hats, scarves, jumpers, dresses and pillows – all of which can be personalised by way of monograms, names and dates, as well as various colour and fabric options.
The blankets are by far my most desired option. The full-sized options are heirloom pieces and look truly stunning with simple monograms. Used on a bed, or thrown over a rocker, they are statement pieces as well as functional blankets – with both a luxurious cashmere option, or more budget-friendly acrylic. As well as initials, the blankets can be adorned with several patterns and graphics, including footballs and hearts.
The blankets also come in a more portable stroller size, just perfect for long walks on chilly days, or as a throw for tummy time. Prices for the full-sized blankets start at US$130, and you can add an extra US$284 for the cashmere option. The stroller blankets start at US$56 with an additional US$160 for cashmere.
Butterscotch Blankees also create personalised clothing for children, with jumpers in sizes from six months to four years, and they ship to Australia.
