Baby Blankets Make a Great Gift

Have a baby shower or 1st birthday to celebrate? Save the time spent searching for an age appropriate toy or the trouble trying to figure out what size outfit to purchase. Buy a gift that will please all, a baby blanket!

Baby Blankets are a thoughtful and practical gift. They can be used to keep the baby warm, as a padded place to play over top of a hardwood floor, or as a creative compliment to a decorative nursery. There are a variety of baby blanket options available so before purchasing, make sure you know what to look for.

First, you want to be sure the blanket is made of a quality material. Baby’s skin is very delicate and can become easily irritated. The blanket you buy should be sensitive to the skin. Cotton is one of the top fabric choices for babies. Cotton is soft, breathable, and can be easily washed.

When purchasing a baby blanket, you also want to consider the weight or thickness. Baby blankets are needed for warmth but you want to make sure they are light in weight. Blankets that are too heavy will make it difficult to carry while cradling the baby in your arms. A think blanket will also prevent the baby from twisting and turning, which they often do.

Color and design is another decision that needs to be made. If you know the sex of the baby or the design of the nursery, this task will be much simpler. Light pink is commonly included in a baby girl’s bedroom and light blue would work great for a baby boy. If you are unsure of the sex or nursery theme, you can stick with a more neutral color like green or yellow.
