While her crib is being set up, a perfect addition would be a hand-crocheted baby blanket just for her.

The Soothing Stripes Blanket by Han Jan Crochet
It’s time to put all of that scrap yarn to good use with this baby girl blanket. You can add as many colors as you’d like – a gradient or just any random ol’ combination. The best part is that it’ll go with any theme for the nursery and can match whichever sheets you put down in the crib.
The Elegant Crochet Baby Blanket by Meladora’s Crochet
This pattern is perfect if you’re looking for a nice lacy touch where the holes aren’t too big for your baby’s finger to get entangled in. It’s also big enough to last for all of the baby’s initial years so you won’t have to worry about crocheting another one any time soon.
