If you want to buy a gift for a baby which will be unique, have a look for a personalised gift. No matter what the value of your item, if it is personalised, your gift will be treasured and cherished for many years to come. Personalising your gift makes it extra special. It means you have put much more effort and thought into your choice of gift for the new arrival. Your gift will be cherished for longer. personalised sweet gifts
There are many online stores which offer a whole host of choices for a personalised baby gift. Everything from nursery furniture, to personalised pendulum clocks. Money boxes, baby casting kits, photo-products, height charts, baby name frames and much, much more. There are many choices available, perhaps too many, which will probably only confuse you.
Before you start your search, have in mind a budget for your gift. Do you want something that will be practical and long-lasting such as a children’s wall clock or height-chart? Or do you want something that will just be a keepsake for the baby such as a personalised name poem or a personalised name frame. Do you want something that the baby will eventually learn from such as a personalised jigsaw? Do you know the colour scheme of the nursery? If so, you can find something which will blend in with the scheme or compliment it.
Buying clothes as a Baby Gift
If you choose to buy baby clothes – these are always welcome and these too can be personalised if you want. If you don’t buy from a specialised store selling them as personalised you can take a bought item to one of the many photo print shops where a name could be printed or embroidered on an item of clothing, sometimes, while you wait.
I never buy the first size of clothing for a gift as babies grow so quickly and most parents will have first size clothes bought before the baby is born. There are many places to buy baby clothes but make sure before you give them as a gift you check that they are safe, no tapes or ribbons hanging or buttons ready to fall off etc.
Organic cotton baby clothes are becoming more popular these days and can be bought to give as gifts. Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. One of the benefits of organic cotton baby clothes is the softness and the quality and it is one of the top reasons people choose them for their baby’s sensitive skin. As well as clothes, you can buy blankets, pillows, towels or bibs – all of which could be personalised to make them extra special and eye-catching.
Finding a good suitable gift for new born babies can be quite difficult. As they get older it can become much easier as you have many more choices open to you. When they are new born you want something that can be treasured and kept as a keepsake. Even the more practical gifts can be used then put away as a memento for the baby. I regularly get out my son’s Keepsake box to have a look through it. It brings back such wonderful memories. Remember, this is what you are creating when you buy thoughtful personalised presents.
More ideas for personalising your baby gift
If you happen to be buying gifts for twins or triplets then buying personalised presents would be ideal. They can have their own personalised gifts such as clocks, height-charts, jigsaws etc. Names printed on their clothes will also make it especially easy for other people to identify them.
Another good idea for personalising your baby gift is to take the baby’s hand prints or baby’s foot prints and get them framed or made into a statue with an engraved plaque. This would be an amazing memory for the parents. You can buy kits which will enable you to do this for yourself or alternatively there are companies that can do it for you. Again, check this out on the internet or in your local Yellow Pages. This will make a more touching way of presenting your gift for the little baby.
