Tips for Buying Baby Blankets

by | Mar 30, 2015 | Gift

Buying baby blankets isn’t just a one-blanket event. You’ll probably want personalized keepsake blankets, bassinet or cradle bedding, bedding for the baby’s crib, a lot of receiving blankets, terrycloth towels with hoods, burp cloths, baby bibs, changing pads, and extra ultra-soft cashmere baby blankets.  Whether you are buying baby blankets as a gift or are putting together your own gift registry list for items for an upcoming baby shower, there are going to be a variety of blankets and blanket-like materials needed.

Personalized Blankets

A personalized blanket for the baby isn’t a necessity but it makes for a nice keepsake. Many hang personalized baby blankets on the wall as part of the nursery’s decor. Even cashmere baby blankets can be personalized.

Receiving Blankets

Receiving blankets are typically flannel and are great for swaddling a newborn, fit into your diaper bag to take with you to lay down for tummy time or for a quick baby change. They can also serve well as a burping cloth in a pinch.

Baby Towels

A hooded baby towel is a must. You’ll want a few for keeping baby warm after a bath.

Burp Cloths, Bibs

Burp cloths work well for keeping messes off your clothing. A baby’s receiving blanket can work in lieu of it as they are typically a thick receiving blanket in miniature form that fits over your shoulder. This is, clearly, a much better option than using cashmere baby blankets over your shoulder during burping when they could get spit-up on them.

Changing Pads

A changing pad is usually soft like a blanket on one side and is waterproof and often non-slip on the other side, making for a hygienic base that saves you from getting floors and furniture soiled during a diaper change and that also saves baby from a potentially cold and unhygienic surface such as a baby changing table in a public washroom.

Cashmere Baby Blankets

Nothing says soft and cuddly like cashmere. Cashmere baby blankets are a high-end baby gift that will show you care. Swaddling a baby in cashmere baby blankets can be the ultimate cuddling blanket. You can find beautiful cashmere baby blankets online that make a lovely shower gift or a welcome home gift for a newborn baby.
