When Zoë was born, she was given a baby blanket personalized with her name and date of birth. I thought it was such a neat gift that she will treasure when she’s older. So, when I was approached by Dakota’s Gifts to review one of their personalized gifts, I was immediately drawn to the baby blankets.

Dakota’s Gifts kindly personalized a pink afghan baby blanket with Kaylee’s name and date of birth. It arrived and it was perfect. She loves sitting on it playing, and I think it’ll last longer than a lot of the soft, fuzzy blankets we have—they always seem to look worn faster to me.

Dakota’s Gifts offers a lot more than baby blankets though. They also offer gifts for birthdays, weddings, graduations and other occasions, gifts for him and her, jewelry and even “green” gifts.

The Anniversary Rose is a sister site to Dakota’s Gifts that offers, as the name implies, personalized anniversary gifts. If you have an anniversary coming up or know someone who does, check out the anniversary gift ideas offered by the Anniversary Rose.
