They say you can take the girl out of Seattle, but you can’t take Seattle out of the girl.
No matter where she roams, ensure she never forgets where it started with a Baby Soft-Map Quilt from Haptic Lab. Emily Fischer, seamstress extraordinaire, knots and embroiders city hot spots of your choosing (the hospital, her first address, the local park) onto a cotton quilt that’s been digitally printed with a graphic representation of the place you call home.
The 42-by-36-inch blankies come in pink, navy, or green, to match just about any color scheme. Plus, they have thick, cozy batting that keeps baby warm on walks and offers plenty of cushion for tummy time.
Cities include Dallas, Boston, D.C., Philly, and Chicago, to name just a few. Lucky New Yorkers can get hyperlocal with neighborhood-specific quilts (Dumbo, Prospect Park), and even international babes in Paris, London, Sydney, and Vancouver are covered — literally and figuratively.
Available online at hapticlab.com, $95 and up.
