If you need a gift for a new baby or child's birthday-this would be the most lovely gift to buy. You do need to know the name of the child, as the name is repeated throughout the whole blanket. There are so many colors to pick from, that I did have to go down to the office to look at the color swatches. They run approx $65, but worth every penny. One of my friends actually used it as a wall hanging. On the bottom of the blanket , you can have the date of birth also. Ordering this could take 3-4 weeks and they will ship it to whoever you want, with a small card in it.
