Wheels Lace Baby Blanket
We Had to Order Another - We LOST BLANKIE!!
We recieved this blanket for both of our sons when they were born (now 6 and 3).
They are delicate and lightweight, but so soft and snuggly. Both have stood up to years of adventure and still look beautiful. No pills or tears (shockingly). We swaddled our babies in them and now they are used as superhero capes. My youngest doesn't want his bed quilt at night, only his blue blankie.
I've thanked our favorite aunt who purchased them for us, again and again. :)
This week, we LOST BLANKIE!! We are all devastated. I had to come to the website, pay $21 for express shipping so we could get a backup ASAP!! Fingers crossed that the replacement is an acceptable alternative to the original. I'm so happy they are still available. Thank you Lands End!

A treasured baby gift
I have probably given a dozen of these blankets as baby gifts over the years. They are always very much appreciated and I'm told they will be kept "forever." The personalization is what makes them special and the quality is great too. . . very soft and washable.

I purchased one of these baby blankets for each of my six grandchildren and recently bought one for a newborn gift. The blankets are soft, beautifully colored and the custom embroidery with name and birthdate make this item a sure heirloom. I will be purchasing another when my grandson is born this winter! I recommend washing in cold water and air-drying if you wish to keep the embroidery smooth.

A wonderful gift!
I have never even seen the blanket but I have bought it at least 10 times as a baby gift and universally the parents have been blown away and always say that is one of those things they will keep as a keepsake. . That's enough for me. The personalizing with the monogram is just what every new parent loves. I will continue to buy it.. I suppose I will still be buying it when I have grandchildren!

The best baby blanket ever made!
This blanket, and the pink blankets, alike, are the very best baby blankets ever made. I have purchased numerous of them and every, single one is absolutely the best quality, the softest, and the most durable of any baby blanket ever made. You can call me and I will give you a very long list of parents for whom I've sent these blankets and, believe, me, each and every one has thanked me profusely! They all raved and raved, and that's why I continue to purchase baby blankets (as well and numerous other items,) from Lands' End.... for the past 30 years!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this blanket - and it's the perfect gift!
We received this monogrammed blanket as a gift when my son was born. It was so soft and cozy - he used it the first night he slept in his crib (around 3 months) and it's been his blankey ever since! Obviously I know you're not supposed to have blankets or anything else in the crib when baby sleeps so I won't suggest that someone else do that, I'll just say that the "lace" of this blanket is perfect - I felt comfortable that he could breathe through it with all the holes but they weren't too big that his little fingers or anything got stuck. He was a winter baby and I felt like it kept him from getting chilly in the middle of the night. After almost a year of using the same blanket every day and night, it's held up well through constant washing and is still very soft - if anything, it shrinks a little with washing but that's fine because it's a generous sized baby blanket. Because he loves it so much, I recently bought 2 more - one for when he starts daycare (hoping the familiarity will help him nap there) and one as a "spare". It's also become my "go-to" baby gift and I've bought 3 more at different times for friends and neighbors. Everyone loves getting this personalized gift for their little ones! The girl's blanket is just as cute as the boy's. My only suggestion would be, stick to just the first name or one line of text - for one gift I tried the full name on three lines but I don't like the way it looks as much. Also, I noticed with the newer one he has, in the morning he sometimes has fuzz from the blanket stuck to his hands - he tends to be a sweaty kid and after two washes it was fine - I would just be aware of this with a new blanket in the warmer months.

not the best balanket
I was excited to get this for my infant son. I also bought the pink bunny one for my 3 year old so she would not feel left out. It looks cute in the photo and almost all the reviews were outstanding. The blanket arrived and was cute, but the material was extremely thin. I was willing to overlook that since I was expecting it to be more of summer blanket. However, when I went to wash it I realized I did not like this blanket. In its first washing the fabric pilled really bad. I had blue and pink fabric balls all over. I dried it on low and when I opened the dryer door a bunch of fluff came flying out. I removed the blanket early and let it air dry, but the whole thing had balled up pieces of fabric on it and they kept falling off all over the place. I shook it out and fluff flew around my house. What a mess.
So now I am left with a blanket that looks ratty and worn. I showed the blanket to my husband and he said it looks really old. I expected it to look this worn after maybe 6 months of use at least. Anyway, not happy with it and thought about returning it, but it is embroidered with my son's name, so I don't think that is an option. Maybe the quality used to be better, but this is not a special blanket like the other reviewers said and I would not send it as a gift to new parents.

Love this blanket!
This is a BEAUTIFUL, FUN, EASY, FUCTIONAL baby gift to give! This was the second time I've purchased this blanket for a gift. The new parents loved it and loved having the monogram with their baby's name and birth date on it.
I had to re-order because the monogramming was done incorrectly the 1st time; but LE made it right and had a new one to me within 4 business days. THANK YOU Land's End!

I have given this blanket as a gift one to many times to remember. So much positive feed back from family/friends such as "it's perfect not to heavy and not light" ... "love the name on it" ...when it's their second kid they are thrilled to get it cause they know how much they used the first childs. I can not say enough about this blanket .... simply a wonderful...perfect baby gift! Thanks Lands' End for a great blanket!!!
