Even minimalists get invited to baby showers, but what do they take as a gift? I struggle with this every single occasion and party I am invited to. I want my gifts to a) promote financial happiness b) create time spent, not money and c) promote local artisans and handmade techniques.I found a website that promotes organic eco-friendly handmade baby blankets. Personalize My Baby Blanket is straightforward and easy to navigate. "At PersonalizeMyBabyBlanket.com, you’ll find the widest selection of personalized baby blankets, christening, swaddling, receiving, stroller, crib, security blankets, and more. Most of the blankets can be personalized with the name of your lovable baby," site founder, Yulia Oz, shares.
Yulia has created a fantastic, and authentic, baby blanket customization site that is both helpful and planet friendly. Minimalist parents that want to cut through the marketing clutter, can definitely agree with that mentality.
Here are some baby blankets I would recommend as a minimalist mother:
Waffle Weave: (pictured above) For the times when you need to wrap those newborns up TIGHT. The waffle weave allows for just enough stretch to keep them snuggled like a womb.
Muslin: Fantastic for itty bitties in the summer time, lightweight and very versatile. Nursing mothers can use these to cover up in public when feeding.
Bamboo: A touch of class for any trendy mother. Bamboo is renewable and a nice weight for strolling baby around town.
