While we think of some designs as being quintessentially girly, others we think of as being distinctly boyish. But elephant baby bedding can be both; or rather it can be neither, so a good choice either way!
Parents today don’t want to restrict a boy’s nursery to the boring blue or a girl’s nursery to regulation pink; modern trends veer more towards gender-neutral parenting. Whether you want to go with a gender-neutral color scheme or whether you do want to go with the pink or blue themes, elephant baby bedding can be a lovely choice for either.
We look at some of the options available for elephant themed baby bedding as well as other nursery essentials for infants:
Baby Elephant Appliqué Blanket
A baby blanket in neutral colors such as the beige and brown blanket with the green appliqué pattern from Target is a lovely idea.
This one has a fleecy lining for warmth and can be used for newborns as well as older babies (40” x 30” are the dimensions of the blanket).
Other styles of blankets with appliqués and other accents inducing hooded blankets created around the general baby elephant theme are also available.
Elephant 4 Pc Crib Set
If you don’t want to pick out separate pieces of elephant baby bedding, you could pick out a matched set consisting of a fitted sheet, a quilt or coverlet, a dust ruffle and a bumper. The Sumersault Spotted Ellie 4 piece Crib Set from Target has blue accents done up in dots and appliqués.
Another really adorable 4 piece bedding set, in a Pink elephant theme is available over at diapers.com. this set consists of a napping blanket, a pillow, a rattle and a plush toy all done up in the same sleeping elephant theme. The rattle and the cuddle toy can be personalized if you need it to be. If you prefer rabbits, sheep, raccoons, lambs, cows, little doggies or other animals to elephants, well those variations are available as well.
Elephant Diaper Stacker, Wall Art, Mobiles and More
You could design the whole nursery around an elephant theme, so you pick not only elephant baby bedding but also other elephant themed essentials for the nursery. An elephant diaper stacker is useful for storing diapers, baby wipes, diaper cream, baby toiletries as well as other odds and ends.
A matching elephant mobile that fixes over baby’s cot or crib is another neat addition – a useful toy and a color coordinated design element.
Wall art is another element that adds to the overall elephant theme for your baby’s nursery. Elephant themed wall art, such as the Elephant Wall decals in a four-piece set, is a cheerful and easy addition to the nursery. Made from vinyl, these are self-adhesive sheets that can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth.
An elephant theme valance to hang over the windowpane in the same matched theme can be just the thing to complete your nursery’s overall look in addition to the elephant baby bedding.
