Gifts for babies
Need a gift for baby’s first Christmas? An extra special forever blanket is a cosy keepsake they can snuggle in and treasure as they grow. Wool is a wonderful fibre for little ones as it’s warm yet breathable, helping to regulate body temperature during naptime.
The British Blanket Company’s beautiful baby blankets are made to last from super soft, snuggly merino lambswool. Pick any of these timeless blankies and give a baby gift that's guaranteed to become a long-time favourite.

Gifts for grandparents
For the wisest members of your family, how about a new throw to pop over their legs when they feel a bit chilly? Our armchair throws are the perfect size for hanging over the arm of a comfy chair, ready to pop over the knees or shoulders when the temperature drops.
They're available in a whole range of colours, to match with any décor. Why not get all the seniors sorted in one fell swoop and choose an armchair throw for each grandparent? Pair the blanket with a tin of shortbread (or their favourite Christmas tipple) for a brilliantly useful grandparent gift.

Made in Ireland from 100% merino lambswool, The British Blanket Company’s oversized blanket scarves can be worn as a pashmina-style blanket wrap. Pick the brightest stripes or colour block checks for a wow moment at present opening time.

Gifts for couples
Couples are often tricky to buy for, but will really appreciate a gift that’s been chosen with them both in mind. How about giving a striking woven throw from The British Blanket Company’s new limited edition Wildweave collection? They’re inspired by the colours of autumn and made in the UK with 100% natural wool. They make a practical present for a couple that seems to have everything. The extra large size blankets are best for a couple's gift as the longer length makes them perfect for two people snuggling together on the sofa, or wrapping up for breakfast in bed.
