Gift Guide: Barefoot Dreams Blanket
Dec 9, 2010
Last night, I was celebrating the holiday season with some friends over a 4,000 calorie dinner at Matchbox, when we started talking about holiday gift giving. And somehow during the course of this conversation, we got onto the topic of Barefoot Dreams Blankets.
My two friends (heretofore known as the Blondes) were absolutely insistent that Barefoot Dreams Blankets are the softest, warmest, and most amazing blankets of all time. They then recited tales of grown men turned into blanket cuddling toddlers by the transformative powers of the snuggly chenille throws. Naturally, I was intrigued.
After all, the Blondes know a thing or two about luxury.
When I asked what the blankets were made of, one of the Blondes replied “feathers from angel wings.” But it turns out that Barefoot Dreams Blankets are made out of a bamboo/poly-blend that several Internet reviewers described as “miraculous” and “life-altering.” In addition to blankets for babies and adults, the company uses this miracle material to make bath robes and sweaters.
While the Blondes insist that these blankets would be an excellent choice for anyone on your list, I think a grandparent or Mother-who-happens-to-live-in-the-freezing-tundra would really appreciate this cozy throw. Bosses, it might also be good gift for the poor assistant/leg. aide who you force to sit in a freezing cold office all day.
I also love these little blanket and stuffed animal combos for the godchildren, nieces, nephews and new babies in your life. They even offer an elephant blankie for the new Republican in your life, but sorry, no donkeys.
So if you need a simple gift for a friend or relative, a Barefoot Dreams throw may be the perfect selection. The blankets while a touch pricey ($132-220) are Blonde selected, recipient approved. Enjoy!
