Organic Baby Blankets & Other Useful Baby Gifts

Organic baby blankets are making a real statement these days. Why? More and more parents are looking for high quality products for their babies that are not only safe for them, but also eco-friendly. Cheap baby blankets that you used to buy a dime a dozen just aren’t cutting it anymore. Moms and dads of today want quality and need to know where to get it.

Estella is one of those companies known for environmentally friendly products parents can count on. When it comes to finding a quality lovey blanket or organic baby blankets you know you can trust Estella. There is a variety to choose from like the organic whale lovey or baby toy security blanket.

This item just like the other baby blankets from Estella are made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton. In simple terms, it’s cotton that wasn’t made from toxic materials. Besides being good for the environment, the whale lovey blanket is also practical. It has an easy to grab padded tail so that baby can cuddle with it at any time. These blankets are unique and are perfect for baby gifts.

Cuddly and soft is the name of the game at Bonpoint with its cashmere blanket.
It’s made from 100% cashmere providing a layer of warmth and softness baby will love. The blanket is also on the larger side so you can wrap up baby tightly, especially if she is in the stroller for a long walk through the park.

Newborn baby blankets from Ketiketa are also great if you’re looking for a lovey blanket or just a regular baby blanket to keep baby warm.

This baby blanket in particular is made from 100% yak wool. It is four ply meaning baby is getting more than one layer of warmth. You don’t have to worry about this blanket being mass produced in a factory where there are harmful chemicals. Each blanket is hand-knitted for the extra personal touch.

If you’re still looking for useful baby gifts and don’t want to give organic baby blankets or a lovey blanket, there are alternatives. The Starling Gift Set from Stella McCartney Kids is a good choice especially if you’re still looking to go the eco-friendly route.

This set features a bird-printed body suit, all-in-one, and matching blanket. All of the garments are made from 100% cotton with yarn that is from organically grown cotton. It is part of the brand’s commitment to eco-friendly fashions. If you do choose this set you may want to buy one size larger since the clothes tend to run on the small side.

Shopping for baby gifts can be easy and fun when you know where to do. Whether it’s a baby rattles, organic baby blankets, a lovey blanket, or other useful baby gifts, keep Estella, Stella McCartney Kids, and Ketiketa in mind.

Organic Baby Toys For The Earth Conscious Mother

If you go down the aisles of any baby store you’ll see shelves and shelves of baby toys. The choices are endless. But not all baby toys are made equally. As we all know not all baby toys are safe either. That’s why organic baby toys are becoming more and more popular, especially for the earth conscious mother. Eco-friendly baby toys are appealing because moms know they aren’t made with toxic materials.

Estella is known for its line of eco-friendly infant toys. When it comes to baby rattles, Estella has several unique options for the earth conscious mother. Take the organic owl rattle.

Handmade in Peru with 100% organic cotton, this rattle also makes a soothing sound for baby. Estella believes in using GOTS-certified organic cotton because it is not only safe for babies, but also safe for those making the products. When it comes to rattles for babies and organic baby toys, this pick from Estella has even been recognized with a Mom’s Choice Award and National Parenting Seal of Approval. Estella has a wide variety of rattles for babies that are all good for the environment and safe.

High-quality products can also be found at Bonpoint. The knitted bear is a simple, yet adorable toy any newborn can play with.

The plain merino wool bear is made from 100% cotton. There are no potentially toxic fillers or other materials used that go into making this bear. Baby can snuggle with it or play with it anywhere he goes.

Oeuf also has several organic baby toys to check out. The Bear Charcoal with Hazelnut Dots is a good choice. 

Although it doesn’t make noise like the rattles for babies, it is a cute and playful toy. Most importantly, it is eco-friendly. Woven from GOTS certified 100% organic pima cotton, it is safe for baby. The material is breathable and hypoallergenic and contains natural antibacterial properties.

Besides organic baby toys, many mothers also like toys that are soft for baby. Toys made from possible dangerous plastic can pose more of a danger. That’s why the Play Time ABC cubes from Caramel Baby & Child are a better choice.

They are especially soft so the chance of baby getting hurt while playing with them is slim. The set comes with three colorful cubes for baby. Just a note, colors are chosen at random so there is no guarantee you will get certain ones you may prefer.

When it comes to eco-friendly baby toys and baby gifts, many mothers look for organic baby toys for peace of mind. These days you can never be too safe. So, when you are shopping for an earth conscious mother, keep brands like Estella, Oeuf and Bonpoint in mind.

In pink or white, they make a great newborn baby gift for any baby boy or girl. If you do decide to go with these booties, you may want to buy one size larger than you actually need since they do tend to run snug.

Besides booties, babies also can’t have enough hats. We all know how important it is to keep little ones warm. Nununu makes an inexpensive star hat that’s the perfect addition for a boy or girl.

The skull-cap style can be worn as a bonnet or tied in a top knot. It’s momma’s choice! Although this is not made from organic cotton, it is made from 35% polyblend and 65% polyester for delicate skin.
