I’m a blanket girl. I have far too many, but I love them. Although we live in Arizona where summertime temps easily jump over 115 degrees, I still have to sleep with a blanket at night. I also enjoy curling up on the couch with my blanket randomly throughout the day, whether it’s hot or cold outside. It’s comforting, I guess. My kids are the same way. Chances are, if we’re on the couch, we all have a blanket. No, our house isn’t cold. We just love blankets!
Despite the fact that I have more than I need, I am always “in the market” for more. When I go to the big box and department stores it’s not unlikely that you’ll see me walking past the bedding to look at the blankets- it’s like a magnet, I tell ya! What if they have a pretty, cozy looking one on sale? Can’t pass up a good deal on something you love, right?
When thinking of perfect Mother’s Day Gifts (based on my favorite things, of course) I knew a throw blanket was a perfect suggestion. I also knew the PERFECT one to feature would be the Daydream Blanket from aden + anais. Neither myself nor my children have had the pleasure of owning one of the aden + anais blankets before (by the time I knew about them my kids were too big), but I have heard countless people rave about them. I was thrilled when aden + anais offered to send me one of the bamboo daydream blankets!
aden + anais blankets are made with muslin fiber, which is soft and luxurious, breathable and comfortable, durable and strong. The open weave and lightweight fabric of muslin is breathable to keep you from overheating while still providing warmth. It stands up to countless washes and actually becomes softer and better with age!
The daydream blankets are made especially for adults, measuring a generous 60 inches by 72 inches. The bamboo daydream blanket is made of four-layers of rayon from bamboo fiber muslin. I am shocked at just how soft and cozy it is. It’s lightweight and heavy at the same time. I realize this doesn’t make much sense, so let me try to explain further. Part of why I love blankets so much, I think, is because the weight of them is comforting. Throw a sheet on me and that won’t do the trick- I can hardly tell it’s there it’s so light. This daydream blanket has just enough weight to it that I notice it’s there, yet it’s lightweight enough that I’m not feeling weighed down. It’s perfect!
I love the latticework pattern on it as well. Not too busy, just enough to give it some character.
This blanket is so awesome that my kids have tried to take it from me. I can’t tell you how many times I get up from the couch to get a drink, grab a book, change out the laundry or the like, and find that the kids have taken my blanket or crawled under it. They keep saying how soft and comfortable it is, and they’re asking for their own. I certainly better consider it, because it’s going to be a fight if they keep stealing mama’s daydream blanket!! 😉
So we like blankets. A lot. But I know we’re not the only ones who are like this. Countless friends of mine have told me they’re the same way, and I’ve seen many of my blogging friends post pictures of the daydream blanket specifically and how much they love it. It’s awesome. Have I said that yet?
Do you know a woman who loves throw blankets? Consider giving her one of the aden + anais daydream blankets for Mother’s Day! Not only is it cozy, but it adds a stylish and versatile addition to any home!
