Okay, no pun intended, I have a "soft spot" for blankets. I loved mine as a child. My older son is still attached to his, and when the second one arrived I was sure he'd love his blanket, too. Well...not so much...he's attached to a stuffed panda, go figure.
But, in a hormone induced, blanket-crazed, pregnant state I found the softest, snuggliest blanket at Nordstrom. Little Giraffe makes beautiful, warm, cloud-soft blankets, and I wholly back them. Just make sure not to put them in the dryer on high!
