When it’s time to pick up a baby shower present, maybe you should choose one that is personalized! Baby gifts that are chosen with a specific person in mind can show extra attention and love.
For a baby shower, a personalized gift is perfect. Everyone attending will be delighted to see an item made special for the new little one – what a way to celebrate a birth!
Many different gifts can be personalized. Let’s take a look:
Blankets And Clothes
If you want to give a personalized baby gift of a blanket or clothing, it can often be personalized with the baby’s name on it. For a blanket, the name can be embroidered around the edge, on the binding. If it is a blanket you’ve bought that has a silky wide edging, it is particularly easy to sew a name on the binding – either with your sewing machine that will embroider in cursive, or have it professionally done.
For clothing, the name can be put on the brim of a hat or around the hem of a shirt. This also shows extra care and concern.
Special christening gifts can be personalized for baby – like baby spoons engraved with the baby’s name and birthdate, or a glass christening mug. These special gifts will remind the parents of their baby’s important day every time they use the gift. Or, alternately, these gifts can never be used – but collected and showcase. For example, engraved spoons can be put into a nice shadowbox where everyone who comes to visit can admire them. Each subsequent baby’s spoon can be added to the box, and as the family grows, so will the collection.
Birth Commemorative Wall Hangings
For an extra special baby – maybe a grandchild, or the child of a dear friend, consider hand making a wall hanging with the baby’s statistics. This is the ultimate in personalized baby gifts! Name, date and time of birth, weight, where born…all can be cross stitched or embroidered into an impressive stitchery to hang on the wall. You will need to get an early start on the outside design of the wall hanging, but as long as you save just the specific details to fill in after the birth, you should be able to finish before the baby is more than a month or so old. This special wall hanging can be hung in the baby’s room and remind the mother of the love you have for her and her little one.
