A Baby Blanket Can Make A Memorable Gift For A Baby Shower

Aug 14, 2008
It is never easy to think of a great gift for a baby shower but a baby blanket might just be the answer to earning the "best gift" award at the shower. With a range of original and clever designs available you cannot go wrong here.

But, what could be more ordinary than a baby blanket I hear you asking? Used for thousands of years to wrap a baby and to provide much needed warmth, it's hard to picture someone coming up with a novel idea in this area. Well guess again. Baby blankets have discovered whole new heights of creativity, fun and usefulness.

"Pigs in a Blanket" is just one example which combines both a clever design and a practical gift. This two-piece gift set will generate lots of "oohs" and "aahs" when the proud mother opens the beautifully decorated gift box which comprises an enchanting vintage container surmounted by an organza bow.

Inside the box she will discover a plush blanket which can be printed with a lovely phrase or simply personalized. It is wrapped around an even lovelier pig in the style of a teddy bear which will quickly become the baby's favorite. Made in stain-resistant polyester which will last for years, it could well even be handed down to the next generation of the family.

This gift also comes with a children's story book rhyme which is designed in a similar style to complement the other two items. "This Little Piggy" which is printed on the reverse was never such fun and the five little piggies which are dancing on the front are in agreement.

Another fun gift is the JoJo Giraffe toy which also comes with its own special blanket housed in its own keepsake box. Standing 20 inches high it will proudly occupy a spot in the corner until the baby can no longer resist the temptation to play with it... which at a guess will take about five seconds. With his arms and legs wrapped around a colorful keepsake box which is done in similar style, JoJo is quite simply a perfect gift.

The blanket which comes with the gift adds greatly to the delight which both baby and mom will get from this gorgeous item. Easily personalized with the baby's name, the sunny yellow fleece of the blanket is soothing and warm. Additionally, at 30 inches by 40 inches, it is a good size for a a decorative bed cover or a baby blanket.

But baby blankets that are standalone items can also make perfect gifts. One excellent example of this is The Maddie's Meadow. Brightly and colorfully decorated with butterflies and flowers on a pink background, it is most inviting. The gift box itself also carries a matching theme with fluffy pink clouds and bright green grass that serve to remind mom of the joys of spring. Personalization is also easily accomplished thanks to the wide satin border surrounding the soft fleece.
