I have a friend who is obsessed with these stretchy fleece personalized baby blankets by Admiral Road. She gives them as baby gifts to almost everyone. (Personalized baby gifts are the best; my son still has the red fleece baby blanket with his name and birthdate received at his bris.) She likes them so much she’s started working with the company (very small and based in Canada) to help them spread the word.
And that’s how I ended up with a personalized baby blanket from Admiral Road. As cute as they are (and they are totally cute and cuddly), I decided my now teenage sons were a tad too big for a new fleece baby blanket. So I ordered one for another friend’s daughter, Daisy.
Turns out, when I asked them to hold the corner of the baby blanket for this photo, one of them requested a blanket for himself. Of course.
Daisy’s fleece penguin baby blanket is so cute. Hopefully I will see her mom soon so I can give it to her!
Here are half a dozen more personalized baby gifts for you from StyleCarrot partners and others, in case anyone you know is having a baby. It seems like half the people on my Facebook feed are new moms.

If yesterday’s post showcasing 29 interiors with faux animal heads inspired you, allow me to help you do a little shopping. The range of faux animal heads (or animal head trophies, animal head mounts, animal head plaques, animal head wall sculptures, or whatever you prefer to call them) is kind of incredible.
There are painted porcelain and tapestry textile heads created by fine artists, papier mache animal heads by artisans in Haiti, resin models done in neon brights with glittery antlers, metal animal heads. animal trophies made of cardboard, and a plethora of plush models meant for kids. I found a blow up unicorn head (what my 7th grade self would have given for one of those) and a modern wire geo-style animal head sculpture. There’s even an artist creating animal head sculptures out of upcycled farm equipment.
The variety of faux animal heads means you can hang one pretty much anywhere, in any style room. It’s hardly cabins-only decor. Here are 45 cute ones from StyleCarrot partners and other vendors.
