Gifts are a wonderful and thoughtful way to welcome a baby into the world and to perhaps even celebrate a Christening, and thankfully there is a real diversity when choosing the perfect present. Whilst there are the usual and often popular gifts, there are plenty of opportunities for people to be more diverse and even original, when looking for the perfect present.
One way of making a gift extra special, is to have it personalized, which adds a lovely touch and thoughtfulness, which can be kept forever. Gone are the days when ‘personalized’ meant engraving silver rattle with the baby’s name, although of course there is nothing wrong with this at all, particularly for people who are quite traditional. And, as I mentioned before, silver rattle appears to be perfect teething remedy. However, modernity and quirky thinking, means there are all sorts of ways to personalize a gift which is unique – great for those who aren’t traditional. Naturally this means that there are perfect gifts for both traditionalist and none traditionalist and this makes your choice wide ranging.
Jewelry such as baby bracelets and necklaces with lockets can easily be personalized by having them engraved, however other popular personalized gifts include money and keepsake boxes. Ranging from hand crafted wood designs, to silver, there are many different options when finding the perfect gift for a baby.
Other gifts include personalized wooden train sets, which are often crafted beautifully and made to last a lifetime. There is something quite special about traditional wooden craftsmanship; handcrafted picture frames for example, with the name of the baby stitched into fabric, or perhaps a lovely child suitable piece of artwork for their nursery are wonderful too.
Wooden building blocks can easily be personalized by having the babies name engraved on each block, or wooden rattles are another unique and special gift for a baby.
Name cushions would look lovely in a nursery and even personalized book sets such as nursery rhyme sets, are a fabulous way to make your gift extra special and.
Engraved silver spoons are another way to make a gift extra special and silver egg cups are also very popular.
However, there are more options than just silver – there are stunning plates and cups available which can be personalized and made to your specification. You could have a photo of the baby imposed on a plate. Then choose the style of decoration. Adding the date of birth is also a very nice touch. You can also be creative in the overall design, making your special gift one of a kind.
There are quirkier personalized gifts too. Including personalized shoes and gorgeous baby outfits with the name stitched in. Blankets with the baby’s name embroidered.
One lovely gift could be a name plaque for the door or it could be framed and put in the room.
Personalized baby gifts add a lovely touch which demonstrates a considered thoughtfulness for the start of a new life, and the celebration of a new arrival into this world.
