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

By: Donald Saunders
It is always hard to think of a great gift for a baby shower but a baby blanket could just be the answer to earning the "most popular gift" award at the party. With a range of clever and original designs available you can't go wrong here.

However, what could possibly be more ordinary than a baby blanket you asking? Used for thousands of years to swath a baby and provide needed warmth, it is hard to picture anyone coming up with a novel idea for a blanket. Well think again. Baby blankets have entered whole new heights of creativity, usefulness and fun.

One example is "Pigs in a Blanket" which combines both a clever design and a practical gift. This lovely two-piece gift set will produce lots of "oohs" and "aahs" when the expectant mom opens the decorative gift box which comprises a charming vintage container surmounted by an organza bow.

Inside the box she will find a plush blanket that can be embossed with a favorite phrase or even personalized. The blanket is wrapped around an even lovelier teddy bear-style pig that will soon become the baby's favorite. Manufactured from a stain-resistant polyester which will last for years, it could very well even be passed down to the next generation of the family.

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

Another gift which is just as much fun is the JoJo Giraffe toy that also comes with its own very special blanket housed in a keepsake box. At 20 inches tall it will sit proudly in the corner until the baby can no longer resist playing with it... which will take about four seconds. With his legs wrapped around a colorful keepsake box done in similar style, JoJo is unquestionably a perfect gift.

The blanket that comes with the gift adds enormously to the delight that both mom and baby will get from this exquisite item. Very easily personalized with the addition of the baby's name, the sunny yellow fleece of the blanket is warm and soothing. Also, at 30 inches by 40 inches, it is ample size for a a decorative bed cover or a baby blanket.

Even baby blankets that are bought as standalone items can also make perfect gifts. The Maddie's Meadow is a wonderful example. Colorfully decorated with butterflies and flowers on a pink backgroundHealth Fitness Articles, it is extremely inviting. The gift box also carries a matching theme with bright green grass and fluffy pink clouds that will remind mom of the joys of spring. Personalization is also easily accomplished because of the generous satin border which surrounds the soft fleece.
