"I sent this to a couple expecting their first child, and they loved everything about it- the organic cotton, how soft it was, that it was made by a socially conscious company, and that it is machine washable. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten such a glowing response from a gift before!"

"I love that these blankets are high quality. One thing I have recently realized, super cozy, sustainable and that part of the proceeds go to help others in need. I love that when my friends and family open their gifts this year they are really going to say "oooooo" when they feel the softness and coziness of these blankets. I hope they will also feel loved. My order was easy. The delivery was timely and 100% accurate."
