2013 Holiday Gift Guide: New Muslin Friends from aden + anais

babyphotoI have a friend who still sleeps with her childhood security blanket. It’s nothing more than a few strings now, but she keeps it in her pillowcase…and you don’t even want to see what happens if she can’t find it. Sure, it’s a little odd, but it just goes to show the power of a lovey. And when a lovey is made from soft, luxurious cotton muslin? Well, then you’ve got a must-have holiday gift for the kids in your life!

Meet the brand new musey mates from aden + anais!

The new musey mates are new handmade animals featuring the soft, breathable muslin that has made aden + anais a favorite of parents worldwide. Each musey mate features a friendly face with a small cotton muslin blankie attached. They’re machine washable, super durable, and each wash just makes them softer and more comforting.

These are the two little friends that will be appearing under our tree this year. Pretty cute, don’t you think?

I know my little man is just going to flip, because he already has a dream blanket from aden + anais in the Liam the Brave print (or as he calls it, “the wolf blanket.”) He wants to take it everywhere he goes, and now he’s going to have his very own matching “wolf” to snuggle with! Perfect for car rides and trips to Grammie’s house when we may not want to bring the bigger blanket along. It’s the perfect “on-the-go” lovey!

The edges of each musey mate are lined with a silky smooth fabric to make them even more comfy for snuggling. As a kid, I always chose blankets with this type of edging as my security blankets. Something about rubbing that silky fabric against my cheek made everything right in my world, and I have a feeling these new loveys will do the same. It’s a good thing aden + anais muslin is made to stand up against a lot of love!

New musey mates are available in 5 different designs.  They coordinate with lots of other a+a products, like sleep bags and dream blankets, or you can bundle them with other matching baby essentials in a new beginnings gift set. (Don’t you just love the pretty “for the birds” print? I neeeeeed to get one for my baby girl!)

There are so many reasons to buy from a small, dedicated company like aden + anais, but the best reason of all is that they sell a tried and true product that has made die-hard fans out of so many moms (like me!) If you’re already using their products, you know what I mean. If not, new musey mates are a great place to start! Each lovey retails for $24.95 and can be found at adenandanais.com.

Wondering if aden + anais has any more new products in the works? Like the on Facebook and follow them on Instagram to stay connected and up-to-date. 

Happy gifting, and sweet, snuggly dreams to you and yours!
