Item of the Day: Rain Baby Blanket and Box

With weaving seasons and fluctuating temperatures, new mums are weighted with clothing options for all unforeseen climate eruptions. We’ve found the perfect antidote to those spitting spells and icy draughts; this Counting Sheep Baby Blanket from Rain is perfect for keeping the cold at bay. Hand done blanket stitching complete with handmade sheep makes this fleecy, unisex layer the seasonal must-have. It comes in a selection of colours including grey, fawn and off-white to match other infant accessories. Coupled with this adorable Sheep Momento Box to store baby toiletries or treasured landmarks of new life, it is just the thing to be strung and tied under a Christmas tree. Some good news too for the new generations of green thinkers: Rain products are manufactured according to a strict code of environmental ethics, promoting sustainability and progressive labour laws. Their packaging is almost entirely made from recycled or natural raw materials and is all biodegradable. The Counting Sheep blanket is priced at R250 and the Momento Box at R139.
