Personalised baby blankets have long been a favourite gift for any new born baby. Not only are they very useful when in a pram, buggy, crib or nursing they make a lovely keepsake for the child for a long time to come. So all of this considered it's no surprise they are one of the more popular choices for gifts to new parents.
With this in mind I have looked long and hard for inspiration for a new baby blanket design and then it came to me, why not ask those who are looking for a personalised baby blanket just what they would like to see new in our range! So have you been searching for a certain design that have in your mind but cant find any where? Or maybe you love our baby gifts but we don't sell the design you want? Well if so this is your chance to get just what you want but for free!
That's right all we want you to do is leave your idea for a new baby blanket design we don't already sell in our comments section here on the blog, or on our face book page and the design idea we love the most will be made up for the chosen person and their idea for free!
So get those ideas going and let us know, but don't forget to add a valid email so the person we choose we can contact for a delivery address!
The rules such as they are, are very simple. Just comment here or on the Facebook page with your idea for a design. We will choose one person who will get that design idea made into a personalised baby blanket free of charge for them. The chosen person will be contacted via email. The deadline for ideas will be 30/05/2012. There is no limit to the amount of suggestions you offer, but keep them different from each other. The blanket will be on plain coloured fleece in a choice of white, pink, blue, yellow or red and will come gift wrapped for you, so you could choose to send it direct to someone if you wish!
Have fun and get creative!

It may seem like Christmas has not long passed, when you were rushing around searching for perfect personalised baby gifts however, we are fast approaching Easter 2012! For those of you whose families are expanding you may now be thinking about buying Easter eggs as gifts this Easter! As supermarkets place Easter eggs in prime position at the front of their stores or on special offer we begin to consider what types to buy and keep an eye out for the best bargains.
While chocolate is a gift that most children will appreciate some health conscious parents may be grateful of family members who think about alternative gifts at what can be described as another commercialised holiday. Moreover, if you are looking to buy something for a baby in particular then Gooseberry Bush Gifts has great personalised baby gifts to choose from that will suit this very occasion.
It is possible to say that a baby does not have the same desires for chocolate as a toddler may and so choosing personalised baby clothes as a gift would offer an alternative that would more than likely be appreciated by the baby’s parents too. Between birth and approximately two years old, it is possible to say that babies will not really remember the gifts given at such a time, another reason why giving a gift that parents can utilise, such as a personalised baby blanket would be a thoughtful consideration.
When we consider that obesity is still a problem in the UK and is particularly becoming troublesome in young children then giving an alternative gift to chocolate could be beneficial in the long term. Unfortunately, it is a fact that almost a quarter of children are overweight or obese by the time they begin primary school, this has been documented within NHS figures. Obesity in children can have both long term and short term effects and so making positive changes to diets and not over-indulging can help improve overall health. Changing your Easter gifts from chocolate eggs to personalised baby gifts could help with this.
Personalised baby gifts are great for any occasion, not just Easter, for example, Gooseberry Bush gifts also stock a great range of personalised christening gifts! Whether you are looking for inspiration or something in particular with a diverse range of items we are certain that you will find an item that will be loved!
