A baby blanket is a labor of love; it's the ultimate baby shower gift.

If you plan to give a baby blanket or afghan as a gift, be sure to give yourself plenty of time to finish it before the shower date.

A handmade baby sweater is a fantastic option if you're looking for a substantial, and unique, gift idea. It can be a challenge to find nice store-bought baby sweaters; also, baby sweaters are small enough that they don't involve an unreasonable time commitment.

If you're looking for an easy project, the beginner's crocheted baby cardigan is a great pattern to try.
