8. African Print Fabric Diaper Bag - Lolly & Kids
Carrying diapers, baby bottles, toys and blankets shouldn’t have to be unstylish. Give the gift of an Ankara fabric baby bag that transitions into mom’s favorite tote or weekend getaway bag. Long after the baby is out of diapers mom can still get lots of use out this set which has the option of adding a pouch and mat to the set. That's what I call a baby shower win for mom and baby.

7. African Print Fabric Building Blocks - Hands Gifted
A gift that combines the beauty of African print fabric with child development, I call that a win win. This 6 sided cube is soft to the touch yet contains a rattle inside that will keep the baby intrigued while learning colors and hand eye coordination. As the infant grows, their building skills will be developed too since the baby can form many shapes and sculptures.
6. ABC, I Love Me by Miriam Muhammad
ABC, I Love Me is the gift of self love and literacy that will remain with the baby for years to come. Each letter is one positive affirmation after another. A great read for bedtime or morning routine. This book will become the first of many to build a quality home library for the little one.

5. Circus Fun African Print Fabric Baby Gift Set - House of Loulee
Such an adorable gift set in vibrant African print fabric, this circus fun set will be the star of the baby shower. The Ankara fabric booties and matching bib are too cute but the stuffed elephant takes the cake and makes a lovely companion for the baby. What I like most about this gift set is the colors of the fabric which will blend nicely into a variety of nursery styles and works for boys and girls.

4. African Rag Doll -Oonaloo
Oonaloo is about celebrating African design in children’s clothing and gifts, like this adorable rag doll dressed in African print fabric. What a powerful gift to give a black child from infancy, images of themselves. The recipient of this doll will learn to see their mirrored ethnic features in a doll that will fill them with pride, an appreciation for African fabric and their beauty.

Measuring 43” x 33”, this Ankara fabric baby blanket is perfect to drape over the newborn’s stroller. It will protect them from the elements, as in cold weather and strangers with questionable energy.
