For that special new baby girl, plan a personalized gift! It will truly be better than those dime a dozen, department store gifts, the ones that people buy quickly on their way to the shower and have gift wrapped on site. They never know if what they got will be duplicated by someone else at the shower – how embarrassing!
Instead, think of something that will stand out. Something that shouts “I’m a girl!” to the world. If she were a boy, you’d want a personalized baby boy gift, but she isn’t, so celebrate her girl-ness!
Great Ways To Personalized Baby Girl Gifts
What’s special about a baby girl? Think pink! Baby girls look adorable in pink clothes, blankets, bath towels, and everything else. If you don’t want to stick to the pink theme, you can mix in some purple – many little girls love purple as they grow up. But avoid the blue, please! And don’t use too much yellow or green, either. Yellow and green shout “we didn’t know I would be a girl!” to whoever sees her. And it also invites questions like, “is it a boy or a girl?” Awkward!
Beyond colors, for a personalized baby girl gift you can go for a girly theme. Princesses are particularly in vogue right now. Disney princesses are, of course, but also any other princessy thing is adorable. Other ideas for themes that girls tend to like are dolls, flowers, and butterflies.
What Kinds Of Items Are Terrific For Personalized Baby Girl Gifts?
New baby girls look great in dresses and girly clothes of all kinds. Also, headbands to declare their gender are popular (especially for those baby girls who don’t have earrings). Booties are, of course, a popular favorite. Those who are experienced knitters or crocheters can also make sweaters, hats, mittens, etc.
Blankets for baby girls are a fun personalized gift. You can buy one, or, if you are experienced or ready for a new experience, you can make a blanket or quilt for the new baby girl. Baby blankets are useful for years, and every time they use the blanket they will think of you.
Beyond clothes, think about the nursery. Wall hangings featuring girl themes or a lot of pink are a good idea for personalized baby girl gifts. You can also make a scrapbook for baby photos, and, if you are close to the family and have access to the photos, you can give it to them all ready to show off! Think about making wooden decorations for the nursery, or photos or pictures of girlish things.
What about gifts for mothers of baby girls? Personalized gifts designed to help out the mother (and father) can be very popular. Maybe make a coupon book of things you will give to the mother or father when they need them most – a dinner, or a loan of a good movie, a nap while you watch the baby or take her for a walk, or a backrub for mom – these sorts of things can be extra useful when there’s a new baby in the house.
Need a very low budget item from one mother of a baby girl to another mother of a baby girl? Personalize the gift by giving a gift of the heart. Make her a small journal (available very inexpensively at a dollar store) that is filled with helpful tips from you to her. She’ll love reading them and knowing you took the time to help her cope with her new baby girl.
