Handpicked gift ideas to build a blanket hamper
A warm blanket, picnic rug or scarf from The British Blanket Company is a wonderful gift in itself. But, to make Christmas extra special, you might want to make our British-made wool products the centrepiece of a blanket gift box, with one or two little extras tailored to the recipient.
