Review: Personalised pink stripe cable baby blanket from My 1st Years


Pink Stripe Cable Blanket

When a new baby comes along, friends and family love to spoil the new arrival and I am no exception! My best friend recently had her first baby, a precious baby girl, and I couldn’t wait to spoil her. I love buying new baby clothes in the latest prints and designs but of course, babies grow up quickly and the outfits are outgrown so buying a personalised baby blanket from My 1st Years is a gift which will last a lifetime.

The personalised pink stripe cable blanket is just beautiful. The blanket is made from 100% cotton so it is really soft and perfect for wrapping around delicate newborn skin. The quality of the blanket is brilliant and has a really luxurious feel to it. The blanket is a generous size being 70cm x 100cm and would be great for covering a newborn whilst they slept or keeping Mum warm during the night feeds.

My 1st Years also offer free personalisation on blankets and so I choose to have the newborns name stitched onto the blanket. You can have up to 12 characters so I had Annabelle’s name delicately stitched onto the blanket.

The name of your choice can be embroidered onto the blanket in one of three colours; baby pink, fuschia pink or mink. You can tailor the personalisation further by choosing which font you would like the embroidery; Cambria, Verdana or Handwritten. I chose the elegant Cambria font in baby pink.

The pink stripe cable blanket was delivered delicately wrapped in tissue inside a free luxury gift box which can be used afterwards for keepsakes and baby memories.

The blanket is just perfect. It’s a beautiful keepsake for a very special little girl and her parents both loved it. I really hope she will treasure the blanket and put it to good use over the next few years. Little Mr loves a blanket to snuggle up to when he needs comfort so I hope beautiful Annabelle will do the same and the blanket remains by her side for a very long time.


The My 1st Years pink stripe cable blanket is priced at just £35 and can be ordered with free personalisation. The blanket also comes delivered in a luxury box and is the perfect keepsake for any newborn.
