Waffle Knit Blanket

We just recently got this waffle blanket to use as a throw for our bed, and Neil and I both L-O-V-E it. It's light enough to use in the summer but also provides a little extra weight so you can sleep well! Sooo cozy and soft. Great to snuggle up in on a chilly day or even swaddle up your little babe for a good night's sleep. Plus it adds some pretty texture and detail to your bedroom or living space for more decorative purposes. Worth ALL the pennies in my book!

Barefoot Dreams has been a love of mine for quite some time (and for reallyyy good reasons!) It looks like I'm not the only one who's a BIG fan – one reviewer said, “I have about 15 barefoot baby + adult blankets and this is one of my faves. Not too bulky, soft, cozy and stretchy. It washes fine and looks beautiful.” Another reviewer said, “Received this blanket as a gift and absolutely love using it to cover baby during naps. It’s a light in weight but very warm and so soft!” Wow, just makes me want to hop in bed and wrap that blanket around me!!!

Barefoot Dreams In the Wild Throw Blanket

Remember that dreamy cardigan I told you about? This is that – but in blanket form. These Barefoot Dreams blankets are $40 off during the Anniversary Sale, and can we get a round of applause for the gorgeous leopard prints?! Perfect for dorm rooms, your office, your bedroom, ANYWHERE. These are ALWAYS, every year, one of the first things to sell out.

In the Wild Throw Blanket

Bliss Plush Throw

The name of this blanket tells you EVERYTHING you need to know about it!! It's super plush and total bliss. We have this soft, cuddly blanket in Millie's nursery (don't worry we ONLY draped it over the crib for a photo – normally it's just by her rocker!) but we ALL try to claim it as our own. HA!

This silky soft throw comes in SEVENTEEN colors and has almost 2000 perfect reviews! During the Anniversary Sale it's just $24.90! Another golden find that is perfect to cozy-up your space.

I got one of these at the Anniversary Sale a few years back and gave it to my grandpa for Christmas. He wrote me the sweetest note telling me how much he LOVED it! It seriously makes the most perfect, thoughtful gift at a wallet friendly price point. Perfect for a teacher gift, friend gift, someone who just had a baby, someone in the hospital, anyone really.

Ultimate Apron

If you are buying for someone who LOVES to cook like my mamathis apron is the biggest win of all time. There's a reason it's called the “Ultimate Apron!” It's an easy-to-wash cotton material, with an adjustable halter top, and SO. MANY. POCKETS. Like, so many, ha. It's the best thing to cook with because you literally have room to put all your utensils, your phone, HOT PADS (!!!!), frequently used spices, a few nuts to snack on (ha), you name it! It makes cooking a breeze, and whoever you gift will look SO cute every time they step in the kitchen because it comes in this super pretty “maple” color and has a fun, simple striped pattern on the side.

  1. I can’t find any of these on the sale?? And the links aren’t working for me! What am I doing wrong??? They’re all such amazing recommendations!

  2. What color is your Bliss blanket? The pink peony looks so orange on the website, but I love the pink color in your photos.

    1. The Bliss blanket color is “purple keepsake” but it doesn’t look like it’s available on the site anymore! So sorry!! Maybe call your local Nordstrom and see if they have any available! -Kourtney
