Review - My 1st Years*

There's something about a personalised gift that makes it that little extra bit special. My 1st Years is a company that let you create gorgeous personalised products for that special little baby boy or girl. There's everything from clothes, toys and teddies to keepsake items and 1st Christmas gifts. 

When they got in touch and asked us to review an item for Parker I jumped at the chance. After having a look around the website, which is so easy to use, I decided on the blue star print hooded robe. My main thinking on picking this was because Paige has a dressing gown which she loves and Parker hasn't got one yet. 

We got the dressing gown in size 6-12 months. Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis will know that Parker is currently 4 months so the dressing gown is big on him at the moment. In fact Paige had a little try of it and she could get away with wearing it and she is a big 2 and a half year old. The sleeves and body are short for her but not nearly as small as I thought they would be. This just means you can really get a lot of wear out of it. I decided on this bigger size so that Parker could get the most wear out of it over Christmas and the winter time when let's face it, is when we all need a cosy dressing gown. 

Parker's dressing gown is of course personalised with his name which I love! I love that you can add this detail and because there is space on the website for you to write your personalised word you can write exactly what you want (up to 12 characters). This means you could easily add nicknames if you wanted to. For example we could of had PJ on Parker's or if we were to get Paige one we could have Pudding. 

The dressing gown itself is amazing quality. It honestly makes me want to steal it so I can cuddle up to it! It is the softest thing I have ever felt which is just what you need for baby soft skin to cuddle up to. The blue star print is gorgeous. A lovely baby blue with cute white stars. It also came wrapped in the most gorgeous box which you can use to store things in. It would make a lovely addition to any nursery.
The dressing gown retails at £20 and is available in 0-6m, 6-12m, 1-2 and 2-3 sizes. For the quality and personalisation this is an amazing price. A gorgeous gift that would be cherished for years to come. Even when Parker outgrows his I'm planning on still having it hung up in his room as it really is gorgeous. 

What do you think about personalised baby gifts?

Thanks for reading,
