Product Review: TinyBitz

Personalized goodies that are meaningful and practical gifts for loved ones

With a whole new year of birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, and holidays ahead, it can be tough to think of meaningful gifts for loved ones. Selecting gifts for babies and kids is even tougher, as they outgrow clothes, toys, and shoes so quickly. 

When Petina Chan’s niece was born, she struggled with the same problems. What could she get that would remain useful and meaningful as she grew up? 

This question led her to found TinyBitz and begin producing customized baby blankets. The blankets come in several different designs, with elements that can be adjusted to the buyer’s preferences. With soft, 100% cotton, and each blanket knit-to-order, these are comforting and lasting gifts for young children that–unlike other child-friendly gifts–can’t be outgrown so quickly. 

“What makes it even more special is that our customers are part of the creative process, where they get to fully customize the blanket to their preference,” says Chan. 

Also, the blankets are machine-washable–a quality that is sorely needed by parents who probably have plenty of spills and messes to clean up. 

Since its founding in 2013, TinyBitz has expanded to personalized blankets for adults and even pets. More products, all offering customization options, are launching this year, including cushion covers and merino wool scarves. –NB
