Today for my giveaway in the Mama's Got A Brand New Babe Giveaway Event, I am excited to share with you Lil Beautique, a wonderful little Etsy shop featuring chic baby gear for your little one!! They offer blankets, burp cloths and bibs, changing mats and more in a variety of fun, cute prints! For this review, I was sent my choice of blanket from their shop! What a tough decision- there are so many adorable options (for both boys and girls) that I loved...but I decided to go with the pink chevron with white minky.




How absolutely gorgeous is this? I love chevron...and pink, so this was just perfect for our baby girl. When it comes to blankets though, while we do love the cute ones the most important thing is comfort right? Well, this passes that test as well (approved by both myself and my husband). The minky material on the backside is so ridiculously soft even I wanted to cover myself with it...and my husband actually did! (Silly husbands!) I know once baby girl gets here, she'll be nice and comfy wrapped up in this blanket and I can certainly see this becoming a favorite of ours!

The blanket measures 28 x 34 inches, making it a great size for just about anything. It's not huge to where you couldn't throw it into the diaper bag for outtings, but still plenty big enough for a variety of uses. With my son, we used blankets all the time...in the carseat/stroller, for nursing, tummy time, etc...and this blanket will be perfect for all of those. I particularly love cute blankets for tummy time. Perhaps it's just because I'm a little (ahem, a lot) picture crazy, but with my son the large majority of pictures of him were either in the boppy, or on a blanket...so I love having super cute blankets such as this one for that very reason. I'm sure it will be featured in many, many pictures to come so why not make sure it's cute? (But like I said, maybe I'm just silly that way!)

Everything from the Lil Beautique is handmade by shop owner, Anna. Not only does she have a large selection of items listed in her shop, she also accepts custom orders...so you can truly have a one of a kind blanket for your little one! She even offers embroidery for a small additional charge, making it a great gift and keepsake blanket as well. And the quality is wonderful...as I said, the fabrics are super soft, but high quality and absolutely flawless. Honestly, there isn't any con that I've found with this blanket...unless the fact that it's not adult size is considered a con!?

I've mentioned in previous reviews that I also love when items come nicely packaged. Again, I know this doesn't change the product itself anyway, but I love the extra special touch and thought that goes into it. The Lil Beautique did not disappoint, coming wrapped perfectly, ready for gift giving! I love it!


Overall, I loved our Lil Beautique Blanket and highly recommend this adorable little shop for anyone looking for a unique, handmade gift for the expecting mommy in their life...or to the mommy who wants something fun and unique for her little one! You will not be disappointed!!
