Gigi Blanket

Have a Linus-wannabe?  This portable, small blanket is all-the-rage in the under 5 set (or, 30 if you’re my sister-in-law who will personally kill me for revealing that!).  The “blanki” that Gigi makes is so that kids don’t have to drag a large blanket around with them but still have their security blanket with them.  This blanket was recently included in a gift basket for Julia Robert’s 3rd child, Henry, in June (off topic here, but how do I sign up for a gift basket upon delivery that includes such divine things as these?).  Mine is teal satin on one side and brown, bumpy, soft fabric on the other.  My daughters both have a stash of these blankets (a few different brands) and my 2.5 year old has been using them as doll blankets lately during her imaginative playtime.  The price of these is really reasonable for how nice they are.  You can find others which are in the same quality category for a lot more!  Gigi also offers “burpis” (fancy burp cloths) and “toothis” (for the child to put a lost tooth into for easy finding by the tooth fairy).
