A customized white Fill In The Blankie works well for either a boy or girl!

"It’s the personalized, added message that makes receiving one special.”

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 27, 2010

Fill In The Blankie provides the solution to presenting a thoughtful, customized baby shower gift, even if the name and sex have not been revealed. Offering a wide array of high-end, luxury fabric and color choices for the blanket, satin edge and thread, as well as a variety of fonts for up to a 200-character embroidered message around all four edges, allows the giver unlimited customization options.

Creating a baby gift that is guaranteed to be special and never end up in the “give away pile” is possible!

Here’s how to create a gender neutral, ultra personalized baby blankie shower gift :

STEP 1 : Use gender neutral colors.
A light yellow or sage blanket with sage, olive, light blue or chocolate thread work great for either sex. As does a white blanket with olive, toasted almond or chocolate thread.

STEP 2 : Get creative with the text.
Use what is known to be true, then fill in the blank(ie)s!
With up to 200 characters of text, there is simply no limit to creativity.
If one is short on time or inspiration, Fill In The Blankie provides suggestions.

Example A (no sex or name known)
Side 1: Baby Jones - today we are celebrating your upcoming arrival.
Side 2: Your mommy's name is Ashley and your papa's name is Mike.
Side 3: We can not wait to meet you, hold you and love on you.
Side 4: Sweet dreams Baby Jones, Sweet, Sweet Dreams!

Example B (no sex or name known)
Side 1: For Baby Jones; Lord, teach me all that I should know:
Side 2: In grace and wisdom I may grow;
Side 3: The more I learn to do Thy will,
Side 4: The better may I love Thee still. -Isaac Watts

Example C (sex is known, but not name)
Side 1: Baby Jones, we loved you before we even knew you
Side 2: Have sweet days and even sweeter dreams.
Side 3: Sugar and spice, and everything nice,
Side 4: That's what little girls are made of.

STEP 3 : Think ahead.
For a gift to be THE gift, remember the old adage that good things come to those who wait (and plan ahead)! When that baby shower invitation arrives in the mailbox, head over to FillInTheBlankie.com. The website makes the creation process easy with just a few simple steps.

Offering remarkable turn around time, Fill In The Blankie orders ship in 7-10 business days. If there is a time crunch, rush production service is available to get the custom baby blanket made and shipped in less than 2 business days.

Fill In The Blankie president, Todd Lilly, says, "Our business is really about enabling our customers to be as thoughtful with their gifts as they are with their words. We just provide the basis of inspiration. Hallmark didn’t become what they are because their cards say ‘Happy Birthday.’ It’s the personalized, added message someone writes that makes receiving one special.”

More than just a keepsake, the blanket will become the child’s “security blankie.”
Mr. Lilly saw how his own son’s cherished, satin-edged baby blanket brought the child immense comfort. A Fill in The Blankie will become the baby's favorite blanket - not for the warm wishes - but, those smooth, silky satin edges that can put even the fussiest baby to sleep.

Beyond the baby shower, a Fill In The Blankie is an ideal present for baptisms, christenings and corporate baby gifting. Customers have ordered a Fill In The Blankie for wedding proposals & anniversaries and even a few lucky dogs get to lounge on one.

With prices starting at just $49, Fill In The Blankie is the answer to finding the perfect gift that will be remembered and used for years to come.
