Most people I know – myself included – love happening upon a baby gift that is just a bit out of the ordinary … something unlike anything anyone else would find.  I am a huge fan of personalized items for myself and others and I feel like the jackpot was hit when I was introduced to Merle & Velma.  They create personalized keepsake blankets, pillows and t-shirts that are made with 100% organic fabric, printed with non-toxic water based dyes and made in the USA!

I was sent a personalized snap tee for review for my new baby girl in the Carly style (retails for $29.00).  With 14 different styles to pick from, you will surely find more than one that you fall in love with!  I requested a size 3 months but my little peanut is so teeny still that she can’t quite fit into it yet … I can’t wait to put her in this!  In the meantime, I have it hung on the outside of her closet on a decorative hanger, acting as part of the decor of her room!

While I am just in love with this tee, I cannot get enough of the Personalized Birth Story blankets from Merle & Velma!  I absolutely want to get my hands on one of these and cannot wait for another friend to have a baby so that I can gift them one.  What an amazing keepsake that you could keep – and use – forever!
