A unique (and sentimental) baby shower gift

A patchwork quilt I always like to give sentimental gifts at baby showers. I know all new parents need a lot of onesies, but I don't want to be the 10th person gifting them with onesies. So I've been on the hunt for unique and sentimental baby shower gifts...preferably something that will make the new mom tear up and subsequently make me tear up. And I think I've found just the thing. Handmade quilts! This beautiful quilt is from a lovely lady in Kingston, Ont, who hand makes the quilts at her Chasing Lightning Bugs Studio. The owner, Annette, says quilts are like friends. How sweet is that? And she's totally right, a quilt is what you cozy up with when you're sad or need some comfort. It's definitely the "shoulder" I've cried on many times. And what a perfect gift to give a baby, a lifetime of comfort! What I love about this specific quilt is that it will go from crib to college. The robins egg blue and lavender colours are perfect for a nursery, but it's not overly babyish. So, the little girl can still use it when she's a toddler and beyond. And really there is nothing more sentimental than taking your baby blanket with you to university. sentimental-baby-gifts I'm also loving this robot quilt it's so cool! Red, white and black would make the cutest colour scheme for a nursery. What do you think makes for a perfect sentimental gift? Photos courtesy of Chasing Lightning Bugs Studio
