Choosing Crib Bedding as a Baby Shower Gift

Aug 22, 2008
You've received the invitation and have already decided to attend the baby shower of a friend or family member. Now you must make the difficult decision of choosing a gift for the event. Shopping for baby gifts can be a lot of fun but if you want to truly get the new parents and their bundle of joy a practical present crib bedding can be an excellent choice. However before you start picking out a print here are some tips you should remember when buying crib bedding as a gift.

Your Budget

If you haven't bought crib bedding before, you may not realize that it can be quite costly, especially if you are going for the best quality possible. Most parents don't want to skimp on anything that is going to be coming in contact with their child so if you're buying a crib bedding gift you need to be prepared to spend a bit more money.

Before you make this decision, determine how much you can afford to spend. If a crib bedding set falls a little over your budget, you still have options. For one, you could find another guest and go in together on the price. Another idea is to buy a piece of crib bedding, such as the diaper table changing pad, instead of an entire set.

Parents' Needs

Another huge challenge for most guests is not duplicating the same gift. This can be a challenge with crib bedding because you may not know what the parents have already purchased themselves or what other guests have bought. The best idea is to stick with the parents' registry or online gift list. You can usually find out the registration information by asking one of the hosts of the baby shower or a close relative of the expecting parents.

With crib bedding, you might also choose to play it safe and buy something the parents will probably need more than one set of anyway, such as crib sheets.

The Style of the Nursery

Before you buy crib bedding, make sure you have some idea of what the parents want their nursery to look like. If they are going for a ballerina look, you won't want to bring in crib bedding for a safari or a surfer. You may want to drop by for a visit and check on the progress of the nursery yourself before making the decision.

If not, ask someone who knows the parents and their nursery plans well for advice on which crib bedding to buy. Of course, you can also find out from using the couple's gift list if they have wisely created one.

Gender

No matter who is buying the crib bedding the baby's gender is likely to be an issue. Even though parents don't want to adhere to gender stereotypes, most people expecting a little girl aren't going to choose the Doodlefish Vintage Racer crib set for her room.
