I was sent the mentioned products in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts contained within this review are mine.

What We Thought: I am always a fan of a good warm, soft, cuddly blanket. Blankets have been a strong symbol throughout my entire life and one of my earliest memories of a blanket is my first day of Kindergarten. I had everything packed up and ready to start my first day of school and one of the things I took to school was a blanket my Mom made me for nap time. This blanket is still floating around somewhere 25 years later.
BlankieGram symbolizes so many times, but one of the main things in my opinion is comfort. I am so happy that BlankieGram agreed to work with me for a product review simply because I love everything they stand for. These are great gifts to give someone who is going through cancer treatments or is sick and in the hospital. This even works great for someone who is suffering from a cold or flu. There is just something so comforting about having a soft blanket to wrap up in and feel loved.
The bright teal color of these blankets stood out to me at first because it is not typically a color I see on blankets. I was amazed to find out that the color teal is yet another symbol. It is known to recharge the spirit, alleviate feelings of loneliness, and invite calming feelings.
This blanket comes in a great 50×50 size which is perfect for a hospital bed, or a comfy spot at home. I also love that this is machine washable and light dryer safe. The first night that I opened this blanket for review I wanted to get the full effect, so I curled up on our couch with a good movie and soon found myself ready to fall asleep. The next morning our son found the blanket and it ended up in his bed at nap time. I have not seen much of the blanket since, but I have had to wash it and I was really curious how well it would handle a washing because it was already so super soft. No worries there, I actually thought it felt softer when it was out of the dryer than before.
BlankieGram also has a 1 for 1 policy where every blanket that is purchased means that another blanket will be donated to someone in need. You are not just getting a great cuddle blanket for yourself or a loved one, but you are making a difference in the world. What a great benefit!
