Royal Baby Shower Gifts

We've already touched upon invitations,  party favors, and party kits for your Royal Baby Shower.  So today we are focusing on fabulous royal baby shower gifts. We particularly love this Royal Baby Gift Basket because it does not take the whole royal theme thing too seriously.  How adorable is this frog prince theme fabric lined baby storage hamper.  Inside you will find everything you need to care for baby as well as keepsake gifts to keep forever. The ultra soft plush baby security blanket doubles as a rattle.

The_Little_PrinceWe know, we know – Princess Kate will not have a formal baby shower for lots of reasons including the fact that royal protocol would require her to return all gifts and what fun is a baby shower without opening all the adorable baby presents.  Nonetheless, we are still gung ho on planning the perfect little prince royal baby shower including choosing adorable gifts for the little prince.

African Inspired Safari Theme Nursery Ideas

Our obsession with the royal family continues! Prince William just announced that Prince George's bedroom will be decorated with jungle safari theme nursery decor, in deference to his family’s love of Africa. “I’ll have toy elephants and rhinos around the room … “We’ll cover it in, you know, lots of bushes and things like that. [We'll] make him grow up as if he’s in the bush,” the new dad said in CNN’s one-hour special, “Prince William’s Passion: New Father, New Hope.”

So knowing that so many mom's-to-be look to the young royals for style ideas, whether it be their choice of swaddling blankets, strollers, or even baby names,  we have put together an inspiration board with lots of adorable safari theme nursery decor ideas.  Any of these nursery essentials would all be much appreciated gifts at any African inspired safari theme baby shower or even an elephant or giraffe theme baby shower.

Royal Family Home Photos | Aden & Anais Baby Blanket

Prince George's 1st Family Home Photos

How sweet is this picture!  Kate's dad, Michael Middleton snapped this photo of the young royals holding Prince George and posed with their cocker spaniel, Lupo.  Would this not make the cutest holiday card ever!  The Royal family looks relaxed and happy and both the baby and the puppy are simply adorable.

Although it is difficult to tell, it appears as if the young prince is wrapped in a fresh, crisp white blanket much like the one he came home from the hospital in.  It seems as if the Duchess taste leans toward clean simplicty. We love these all white Aden & Anais Dreamer Swaddling Blankets

Prince George Comes Home from the Hospital Swaddled in Aden + Anais

Aden + Anais Swaddling Blanket

As His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge heads home in this adorable soft and cozy Aden + Anais Jungle Jam Bird Swaddle Wrap swaddling blanket, I can't help but reminisce about my first swaddling adventure.

Daniel, my first born, developed jaundice soon after he was born.  The doctor suggested we put him in the window to expose him to sunlight. The problem is the nurses also drilled into my husband and me the importance of swaddling newborns. Being the new and inexperienced parents we were, Matt and I obediently followed both instructions at the same time.  When Matt's dad, an renowned New York OB/GYN discovered his 2nd born grandson cooking in the window, he lost it.  He truly thought I had to be the most inept mother on earth .  Ever since I have been absolutely mortified by my complete lack of common sense during those first few days as a new mom.  This is why I once again implore everyone to give the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge a modicum of  privacy to allow them to make the mistakes every new parent inevitably makes without broadcasting each personal embarrassment to the world.

Enough reminiscing. Why are Aden + Anais swaddling blankets fit for a royal baby?
