My lovely luxury baby gift from Willow and Cole

There are some baby items you know you will hold on to. You know instantly you will save these items for your children's children, just because they are so beautiful and precious. Willow and Cole provide exactly these types of baby gifts. 

When Willow and Cole got in touch and asked me to review their baby gifts I could already picture myself handing over these treasures to my future little grand-darlings... And I'm really happy to be able to share the joy with you guys as they have provided one of their beautiful merino wool cashmere baby blankets to give away to one of my readers too!

I loved how stylish and luxurious the baby gift sets Willow and Cole provide are. There were gorgeous little dresses, dungarees and cardigans for the fashion-conscious amongst us, and practical yet luxurious everyday items for us who just want to have a little extra beauty in our days. My lovely luxury baby gift included a cashmere cable knit baby blanket, an olivewood natural goat hair baby brush and Shelly the Sheep, the softest ever cuddly toy. 

I'm a firm believer in that in your everyday life you should use the best possible things you can. It is all about using items that work well, feel pleasant on your skin, are a joy to touch with your fingertips - it just makes your day so much better, these tiny little touches. An ordinary day can be made a little bit better by adding a bit of luxury in it, be that in fun things like taking care of your baby or mundane things like doing the laundry. We only live once, we might as well enjoy it and have fun doing it.

It is pure joy using luxurious and beautiful items. I loved brushing my baby's hair using her new olivewood hair brush, pretty to behold and pleasant to touch. The bristles feel soft on the skin, so my baby loved the feel of it on her head. Her cashmere blanket was luxurious, soft and warm, and oh so pretty with the intricate cable knit pattern. Her little sheep was another high quality item, soft and cuddly and perfect for little hands to hold. 

What I loved about Willow and Cole was also the finishing touches. It's the little touches that make for a perfect gift. Seeing the beautiful gift box, having the anticipation of opening the bow and peeling away the silk paper to reveal the luxurious contents... It's so exciting opening a gift! Obviously the gift is for the baby, but as the parent you get the full benefit of opening and appreciating it, so it is nice to have that extra special little something.

Anything from Willow and Cole would make for a very well-received gift I am sure, so if you ever are looking for that extra special something to give to a new baby, their baby gift sets will be a great place to start.

All in all, I loved my gift, or ha ha, my baby's gift. See, I like it so much I have pretty much appropriated it for myself! I personally love the feel of cashmere and merino wool on my skin, so I am sure if my baby could speak, she'd say "Me too!". These materials feel warm, soft and breathable and incredibly comfortable, and if I could, I'd wrap myself and my baby in them head to toe.

  2. Awwww so cute- the best baby gift we ever received was from my 2nd cousin, she gave Cailey this beautiful pink set which contained a gorgeous cotton nightie, “sleepy rabbit”, and a very soft adorable pink cotton blanket.
    We still have sleepy rabbit to this day- nearly 9yrs later! He had to go in for surgery last year for a full body transplant and facial reconstruction, but the lady that did it designed the new look with Cailey and incorporated Sleepy Rabbit as we know him but made him fresh and reborn xxx
