When my children were born, we were delighted and thankful to receive many thoughtful gifts from family and friends. Some were practical and oh-so-useful like onesies, diapers, and a crib mobile. Some were beautiful keepsake mementos like sterling silver picture frames and collectible Beatrix Potter porcelain. And, a few… were both!
My niece, who lives in just outside of London in England, recently had her first baby and she is coming home for a visit in July. So, I’ve been searching for “the perfect baby gift” based on my own experiences. And, what I found for her is a Max Daniel Designs baby blanket — the ultimate in luxury and practicality.
These blankets are so soft, babies love them. And, moms do, too. Because not only are these blankets the cuddliest around, they are also high-quality, machine washable, and extremely durable. Crafted in the USA from ultra-soft, double-sided plush, they measure a generous 36″x 32″ and have a buttery smooth Charmeuse satin trim ruffle that infants find irresistible.
One of my favorite patterns is the Grey Jaguar print, pictured above. This is a look that will grow with a child well beyond the baby years! In addition to the Grey Jaguar pattern, Max Daniel is known for a large selection of other wild animal prints, like Pink Snow Leopard and Tan Zebra. Or, if you prefer a more a more traditional look, there are colorful Rosebuds & Satin (shown here in Coral), playful Plush Dots, and Luxe Bunny lines.
Of course, I am not the first to “discover” these amazing blankets. Baby blankets by Max Daniel Designs have been spotted on the arms of celebrity moms such as Jennifer Garner and Nicole Kidman. They have also appeared in Marie Claire, In Style, People, US Weekly, OK!, The Insider, Daily Candy, and PopSugar. Plus, Max Daniel blankets were selected by none other than Ryan Seacrest as a “Top Pick Holiday Gift” on KIIS FM and by Mario Lopez on Extra!
The Grey Jaguar blanket retails for $76 and the Rosebuds & Satin blanket retails for $64. These two, as well as many other Max Daniel designs, are carried in over 1,000 exclusive boutiques worldwide.

And, while you’re there, don’t forget to take a peek at the amazing Adult Throws by Max Daniel Designs. The line includes heavenly soft, adult sized throws measuring 72” x 60”. These throws are perfect for every room in the house or for travel. In fact, they are so sumptuous, you may find yourself carrying a blanket around like Linus from The Peanuts Gang! Retail $225-$245.
