Receiving an invitation to a baby shower can be an exciting thing. However, choosing the perfect baby shower gift for the mom-to-be can also present a stressful situation. Baby blankets still remain both popular and practical, and many modern designs and fashionable fabrics make this gift a great choice.

You may be wondering how in the world a baby blanket can become an original baby gift. Even after all the years that we’ve used them to keep our babies warm, there are multiple new ideas implemented into the newest blankets available.

One popular new design for the baby blanket is the “Pigs In a Blanket”. What’s more is that it provides two gifts in one, and is presented in an original and decorative box. You know how all the women will gawk at virtually any pretty container! This one boasts vintage styling with a welcoming “Open me!” bow.

Once the excited and expectant mother opens the box, she will find a soft baby blanket that is able to be personalized with a special message or the initials of her coming baby. The blanket is even tied around a stuffed pig that presents a safe and comfy favorite for baby’s naptime. This pig is fashioned out of the most resistant and durable fabrics that are still soft and loveable, so will remain in one piece through years of wear and tear.

Also included with the “Pigs In a Blanket” gift is the popular “This Little Piggy” storybook rhyme printed on the back. If that wasn’t enough cuteness to float your boat, consider the dancing piglets portrayed on the front.

Another original blanket gift is the JoJo Giraffe toy that arrives in a special decorative box with a coordinating blanket. The giraffe stands nearly two feet tall, and is one of the most original baby shower gifts available. JoJo stands wrapped around a unique baby gift box, and will become the ideal toy for the baby in the coming months.

Personalized baby gifts are the best way to make a lasting impression, and JoJo’s blanket can easily be embossed with the baby’s name, initials and even birthdate. This blanket is made of a gender-neutral and soft yellow fabric that is the perfect baby gift set when the sex is unknown! The blanket is also large enough to be used as a crib cover during baby’s earliest months.

You’ll also be able to find great baby shower gifts in unique baby blankets that stand alone, too. Maddie’s Meadow is the perfect baby gift that is a brightly-colored blanket adorned with butterflies and flowers. The accompanying keepsake box coordinates with the pattern, utilizing a vision of spring grass and lofty, cloudy skies. This baby gift may also be personalized around the edge of the soft blanket.

If you’re looking for a baby gift set with multiple practical items, take a look at the 9-piece layette set. It contains several blankets and toys, a set of booties, and a matching set of three gift boxes. These items will transition over the next several years, finding use for baby and mom when they need it most.
