Current wait for custom blankets is 3 weeks but blankets can take up to 6 weeks. We are no longer able to assure orders for Christmas, anything ordered by Dec 1st should be finished the week before Christmas but would still need time to ship. We have 150 blankets on the go and finish 50 - 70 a week. We will contact customers as packages are ready to ship to see if they want to pay the extra for fastest shipping. Please consider a gift certificate as many more fabrics will be available in the new year. Our guaranteed for Christmas deadline was November 13, 2017.

The Company

Hippo Hug Weighted Blankets Calgary Alberta CanadaHippo Hug weighted blankets was founded in Calgary, Alberta Canada by Leslie Brooks in October 2011. Leslie saw an opportunity to combine her love of sewing with her passion for helping people.  In early 2011 Leslie created a custom-made weighted sleep sack for a client with Autism who was seeking deep pressure at night. She saw the opportunity for a small business venture and with the encouragement of her husband began the journey of entrepreneurship. Hippo Hug was born and as the business grew, Leslie’s knowledge of all the people that could be helped by a weighted blanket also grew. Hippo Hug has gone from a small home based business that made 60 blankets in its first year to full fledged manufacturing operation shipping blankets across Canada and the USA. In 2016 Hippo Hug saw huge growth, completed over 500 blankets that year and moving into a manufacturing space. Hippo Hug has 3 part-time employees and Leslie full-time at the helm. Everyone at Hippo Hug loves helping people find a solution. We are committed to making sure a weighted blanket will work for you and finding the size and weight that will fit you best. We pride ourselves on compassion and customer service.
