 What Is A Receiving Blanket?

 A receiving blanket is a blanket for a baby usually a newborn baby. It is generally fairly small sized and very soft. They do come in a variety of colours and styles and price points so there will be one to suit most babies and most families. Usually they can be washed very easily.

 The blanket is used to wrap the baby in for warmth and sometimes for swaddling. Parents may also use them to lie the baby on, or as a burping bib across the shoulder. 

 A Receiving Blanket As A Gift 

Receiving Blankets makes a lovely and thoughtful gift and area available at many different prices to suit your budget. They will generally be a very welcome gift for new parents. 

If you are buying a receiving blanket prior to the birth of the baby for a baby shower for example and do not know the sex of the baby then you may be wiser to go for white or yellow or another neutral colour. 

Many people will buy pink for a girl and blue for a boy but of course this doesn't have to be the case at all. Other colours like yellow, lavender or green can be equally lovely. White or cream is also a beautiful choice. So a receiving blanket can be a very practical and lovely gift for new parents. 

However there are also receiving blankets that are for the sole use of being kept by the parents for the child and not used, but rather as a treasured keepsake for them when they grow older. These may often be more decorative in nature or have been embroidered by the gift giver or the parent with the baby's name and birth date.

Of course it does not have to be blue for a boy and pink for a girl. Although many people still like these colours there are many who prefer to have a colour scheme that is more neutral.

 Especially if planning on several babies over time a more neutral scheme means that the nursery does not need constant redecoration. Also these soft yellows are really so beautiful this may be a good choice.

 This is a very useful fleece baby blanket. Its a good size at 30" by 30". In warm fleece it is a very thoughtful gift for new parents. This receiving blanket comes in many different colours to suit baby, the parents and the decor.
