Baby blanket from Big Fat HenI know, it’s summer and you’re not thinking warm, fuzzy blanket, but
really, for those pregnant friends due in fall or winter or those of us with the air conditioning pumping all night, the handmade blankets from Big Fat Hen are a pretty great pick to have on your radar.

These blankets combine bright, fun fabrics with a super soft underside, for a thick, plush blanket with a stylish twist. There are even a good number of choices for harder-to-shop-for boys Cool Mom Picks Pick of the Year badgefrom the tried and true transportation motif to cool prints and geometrics. All without getting too theme-y, which these days, is like an urban myth. -Kristen

You’ll find beautiful baby blankets, quilts, and other handmade baby accessories at Big Fat Hen.
