Choosing a baby shower gift requires much thought. You always want to give a gift that is unique and different from everyone else's gift. By giving the baby personalized gifts, you can show the parents-to-be how much you think of them and the baby. Personalized baby gifts are also perfect for baptisms or a first birthday.
Baby shower gifts are actually easy to choose. Anything practical will be appreciated by the mom-to-be. Things like layettes, receiving blankets, hooded towels, wash cloths and bottles are very useful and are often adorable because of the cute designs and colors that are available. Personalized baby gifts are all the more precious because of the extra thought that comes with them.
A baby's personalized gift can be an embroidered baby blanket, bodysuit or hooded towel. You can also have a baby bathrobe monogrammed with the baby's initials. Monogrammed items are very elegant. Baby dishes, silver spoon set or picture frames can be engraved. Not only are personalized gifts beautiful, but they can also be affordable yet special.
Personalized baby gifts can quickly become treasured items of the recipient. Choose the item to be personalized very carefully especially if it is meant to be a keepsake like porcelain shoes or silver spoons. Find a reputable specialty shop that is experienced in personalizing gifts for babies. It is also a good idea to know the shop's return policy especially if you are dealing with an online shop.
If a mom-to-be is close friend or relative, she may ask for nursery furniture. Even nursery furniture can be personalized with the baby's name or initials. A crib, baby cabinet or high chair can be personalized just like other baby gift items.
Personalized gifts for babies do not have to be expensive. Books, stuffed toys, educational toys and music can be personalized. They provide entertainment value and will help baby recognize his or her name.
If you are a DIY person, you can make baby gifts even more special. You can purchase personalized ribbons, bags and gift boxes that can double as keepsake boxes too. These are available at craft stores and online stores. Fill the bag or gift box with embroidered baby clothes, blankets and other personalized baby items. An engraved picture frame or baby baking book is useful and can hold the baby's first pictures. You will have a unique gift that the parents will always hold dear.
