My son turned 8 last week. He’s a huge sports fan. Last year we got him a Seahawks Fathead for his birthday. I wasn’t sure we could top that, especially since most birthdays and Christmases consist of sports gifts — we’re running out of ideas over here!
Let me just say this: I was wrong. We gave him a Seattle Seahawks Plush Rachel Throw from The Northwest and it was love at first sight. Seriously. He has told me numerous times since he opened his blanket how much he likes it. In fact, when I asked him what his favorite birthday gift was, he looked at my like I was crazy and said “my blanket!”
I wish I had been able to capture his reaction when he opened the blanket. He was so excited — he’s been wanting one since last Christmas. He loves super soft blankets and this one is softer than any other we’ve seen, Seahawks or otherwise. Honestly, I’m a little jealous. Luckily, he likes to share and has asked to snuggle next to me on the couch with it every night since he got the blanket (bonus!)
He likes the picture side facing in because it’s a little bit softer than the other side. The right side looks awesome on his bed but he takes it with him wherever he goes in the house so the bed is never made. The inside of the throw was made to mimic the feel of your favorite sweatshirt but I think it’s even better than that.
The blanket is thick and plush and the colors are bold. It’s made of 80% Polyester and 20% Cotton and is machine washable (thank goodness!). The size is very generous at 54 x 84. It retails for around $40 which I find to be quite reasonable for the quality.
The Northwest offers a wide variety of blankets the whole family will love whether they’re sports fans (NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB, Collegiate) or they love brands like Disney, Hello Kitty or Marvel. They have different styles too from plush ones to tapestry style throws and more. You can find out more at www.thenorthwest.com.
