While south Louisiana winters are mild, chilly days are likely in the coming weeks. Carte Blanche merchants can help you keep the little ones in your household cozy and warm.

One fun way to keep tots warm is a plush heatable soft toy such as Warmies Plush, available at Caroline & Company. Gently scented, these toys can be heated briefly in the microwave for long-lasting warmth. Soft and warm Magnetic Me Footies, also at Caroline & Company, keep babies warm, including their toes, while being easy for moms and dads to fasten.

Shopping locally is a great way to support the Acadiana economy. Check back each week with Carte Blanche for more ideas from locally owned businesses.
