What's in a name?
When it comes to personalized baby gifts, plenty.
Personalization is bigger than ever, with e-tailers and retailers offering a wealth of you name it.
Chicago-based company, Little Moonjumper, has it covered with personalized, handmade baby blankets in a range of sizes to keep children snuggly all the way from stroller to crib to a twin-sized bed.
The brainchild of cold-weather fighting mama to six, Lyerly Spongberg Tuck, the blankets were born out of necessity when trying to keep her little ones warm during an especially brutal Windy City winter.
Instead of wrestling with too-small or too-big blankets that didn't seem to save her children from the cold, she created her own "hard working blankets," meant to wrap newborns without extra bulk yet keep toddlers cushioned while playing on the floor.
Each blanket is completely washable, and will not ever fade or shrink since they're colorfast and ravel-free. After a little testing, turns out it's true.
