Weighted blankets & Quilts/Bowl Cozies/Coaster Sets

Manistee, Michigan

Announcement    It is already April 2020 and we have lived in our new home for one year already! Our family got a new addition...I have a great-granddaughter!!!. On a business note, I made some weighted blankets ranging in weight from 4 to 22 pounds. Sold some coasters and miss my grandbabies like crazy!

As always, I have Coaster Sets and I have added Tissue Box Covers and Napkin Holders made with Plastic Canvas and Acrylic Yarns. Hand knitted Slippers are also in stock! I have lots of cotton fabrics to make Bowl Cozy sets as well as lots of other fabrics to create CUSTOM ORDERS when requested. You are welcome to take a look through my shop. If you see something that you like but would prefer a Custom made item, all you have to do is look down the left side of the page under Shop Owner and there will be a "teal colored box" for requesting a custom order, Click on this box and it will take you to a form where you can tell me what it is that you want, ask questions and tell me how soon you will need it. Then once you submit this request, I will be notified and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Once we have come to terms on item to be made, time frame and price, I will post your listing for you to pay from. I pride myself in keeping my customer updated regarding start time, how things are progressing, then shipping information such as date, tracking numbers and estimated delivery time.

Along with Weighted blankets & Quilts, Bowl Cozies and Coaster Sets that I mentioned above, I also take orders for Regular Blankets/Quilts and hand knitted slippers.

My BOWL COZIES are something that every home should have for handling hot dishes, whether it be to use in the microwave or to put that hot dish into from the oven to your dinner table!

I am always trying out new items and I will add them to my site as I perfect them. I will also update on my Face Book page with the same name Nana's Gifts Galore with new items to view!

There will be many holidays and special events to celebrate and I hope that you will think of me and my shop when preparing for those times. Let's not forget the need for special gifts for loved ones and friends from time to time, such as Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, Showers and simple "Thank You's"! I am really looking forward to working with new customers in this year and I wish you all a Blessed year.

SOME INFO ON WEIGHTED ITEMS:
Weighted blankets and lap pads are the main reason I started this shop. They are used by children, teens and adults. They are designed to calm, relax and maintain focus for many with conditions such as: Autism - Asperger's Syndrome - ADHD - Sensory Processing Disorder - Lupus - Fibromyalgia - Bi-Polar Disorder - Parkinson's disease - Cancer - Insomnia - Anxiety Disorder - Restless Leg Syndrome - Dementia - Alzheimer's - Seizure Disorders - Aggressive Behavior - Stress - PTSD

I make these weighted items and sell them at very competitive prices. But, even though my prices are competitive, it can be a little too much on the budget all at once for some of the larger items, so I have also offered a payment plan when needed. My completed products can be seen under a new Category called "Custom Orders" If you have any other questions regarding my WEIGHTED PRODUCTS, you can contact me here on Etsy, on FaceBook, or you can text/call me at 310-357-4702 at EST as I am in Michigan now. You can also email me at gerbewife1[at]aol.com. In any case, I will get back to you as soon as possible!

Along the way, I have learned some good tips and suggestions such as:
1. When ordering a blanket or lap pad for a child, it is a good idea to order two so that the child has one at all times; one for home and one for school or if one gets dirty, etc.
2. If you are unsure as to whether you want to spend the money on a full blanket because you aren't sure if your child will like it or not, then why not try a lap pad (made in 3-lbs up to 8-lbs) they are less expensive and can still be used for nap time, TV time, reading, homework, and sitting at the dinner table, just to name a few. Then if you decide that a full blanket is warranted, we can discuss it.
3. There are a lot of people out there that just prefer some added weight on them to get to sleep at night. Summer or Winter they have to have heavy blankets and they don't care if it is too hot! In this case I usually make the blankets out of 100% cotton fabrics for people that are naturally "hot blooded" or suffer from the famous "night sweats". That way it doesn't trap the heat in so much.
4. Have you ever noticed that you feel a little more relaxed at the dentist when they put that lead apron on you to take x-rays? I do. It has been suggested for both children and adults alike..if you are nervous or anxious when you go to the dentist then ask them to leave that lead apron on while they do the cleaning or cavity filling, etc.

JUST A REMINDER!!!
For custom orders, I will discuss with you, specifically what I need to know such as: fabrics, the theme, colors, etc. you want for your order. Pricing and shipping will be discussed when you contact me to place an order. I always try to make sure the order is what you have asked for and I will question you on things that are not perfectly clear so that you will be happy with the final product. I use both cotton-blend and acrylic yarns for my slippers and 100% cotton, cotton blends, flannels and fleece fabrics for blankets, lap pads and Quilts. Of course, I can use other fabrics as the need arises.....

AS WITH LAST YEAR.....SHIPPING DATE CUT OFF FOR ALL ORDERS IS DECEMBER 5th...UNLESS THE CUSTOMER WISHES TO PAY THE HIGHER RATES TO RECEIVE THEIR ORDERS BY CHRISTMAS....SO THAT MEANS, CHRISTMAS ORDERS NEED TO BE PLACED NO LATER THAN THE WEEK BEFORE THANKSGIVING...ESPECIALLY THE WEIGHTED BLANKETS AND LAP PADS!!

AS ALWAYS YOUR BUSINESS IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

About NanasGiftsGalore

Sales 45
On Etsy since 2014

Wanted to make some extra money doing what I love to do :)

I am a Wife, a Mom to four sons and Grandma to 16 totally cool grandkids. I live in California and I found Etsy while surfing the internet about 4 years ago. A great shop owner here on Etsy named Kate Firns helped me a lot with tips and getting things set up. I started with handmade knitted booties made the same way my Mom taught me so many years ago and over the years made them my own. I make ankle booties as well as "Boot" booties that can be rolled at the ankle or left up like boots. Being self taught when it comes to sewing and having made one for a great-nephew of mine, I am adding "Weighted Blankets" and "Weighted Lap pads" for children and adults with "sensory issues" such as Autism as well as those needing help with "Pain Management" and "Insomnia issues". They have also reportedly helped with "Restless Leg Syndrome". I love making baby blankets, little dresses, and PJ's for children, some doggie clothes as well as knitting and crocheting. Every piece that I make has a lot of love in it and brings back some of the many great memories of learning how from my Mom and making items for little ones in my family. Thanks for checking my shop out and if you have any requests and/or questions, please feel free to ask right here at my shop, email me at gerbewife1 [!at] aol.com, PM me on my Facebook page with the same name as this shop, or just text/call me at 310-357-4702. (9AM-6PM PST)

Hello, my name is Lynette and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out "NanasGiftsGalore". I believe that if something does what you made it for, then you have accomplished what you set out to do. I always make sure that all aspects of an order are totally clear to me and you before starting an order....I always try to ship USPS "If it fits it ships" to save on shipping costs. If you need it shipped FedEx, UPS, overnighted or have ordered later in December then you can expect higher shipping costs...This is why I always remind my customer about their time frame. I do have some items where the price includes the shipping cost but not all are. Look forward to working with you and thanks again for taking the time to check out my entire shop.
