Baby blankets are one of the things that you need to have for your baby. You use them to cover your baby, to swaddle your baby, you lay them on the floor to protect your baby - they do so many things. Here are some of my favorite baby blankets. They are perfect as a baby shower gift.

This 47 X 47 bamboo blanket is so soft, it might even be softer than your baby's skin. It's large enough to multi-task from a swaddling blanket to a car seat cover. This ampple fabric extends the life of this blanket well into the toddler and early childhood time frame. It also gets softer as you wash it. The lovely fabric options include plain, and three versions of deep jewel tones with patterns. Available in three packs which makes it a perfect baby gift.

These blankets have become my new favorite. They are light weight and soft, making it easy to put next to baby's delicate skin, and yet large enough to effectively swaddle as newborns need and love to help them feel safe, without the overheating of many blankets.

Swaddling is an age old concept. This blanket helps prevent the blanket malfunctions and parental mistakes common to most regular blankets. The soft, easily washable material really helps the blanket keep well for baby, while comforting the baby easily. There are also no worrisome snaps, Velcro or other attachments to potentially harm your baby.

This is a very soft, but thicker, version of the Aden + Anais blanket. It's great for cooler months and yet still appropriate for swaddling. The sizing is so generous that you can even use it to cover a toddler.

The Chic & Cozy Blanket Bag by Chic Tots is a really cool invention! By combining the bag of "stuff" you take with your baby and the baby's blanket to play on you drastically reduce what you carry and to do it with such style! This blanket/bag is sure to be on every new mom's list of must-haves!

Shi Shu Baby Blanket is a delightful baby blanket. The softness and attention to detail are wonderful. It is handwoven with 60% cotton and 40% bamboo. It is edged in bamboo sateen. I liked it so much I put the adult version on my wish list! Oh and my baby likes it too.
