There are babies… and there are gifts for babies. The type of gift you give a baby definitely depends on the baby and the parents. I mean, imagine if you had to give baby Suri Cruise a present. You would have to go to a luxury store like Saks or Neiman Marcus and choose between cashmere, silk or other terribly expensive materials that are not practical. What matters is haute couture and high prices.
But, if you’re more interested in giving meaningful baby gifts, you need to think a little further than silk dresses (which stain easily) and automated robots (which cost a fortune).
Personalized baby gifts are a great way to greet a precious baby. There are many reasons why personalized baby gifts can score you big points with the baby and her parents. For parents, their new baby is the center of their existence. So they are sure to get excited about any gesture that has as its objective the personal happiness of their baby. For the baby, personalized gifts make great keepsakes, something to look forward to when they look back after many, many years.
So, here are some great personalized baby gift ideas.
Some gifts are universal, meaning all babies need them. Baby blankets and pacifiers are great examples. You can add an extra element of thoughtfulness by personalizing these gifts. For example, how about engraving the baby’s name or date of birth on a soft fleece blanket? Personalized pillow cases, funny t-shirts, and wall art are some other ideas.
If you’re short on time and ideas, gender-specific gifts are some of the best personalized baby gift ideas to keep track of. Gifts for boys are different from gifts for girls. For example, if it’s a girl, you might want to give her a personalized monogrammed sweater. Or maybe you want to gift a personalized baby bib with matching burp clothes. Little boys look so cute when they are dressed in shorts and t-shirts that have their name on them.
If you want to give something that can be used for a long time, you obviously need to think about more than just clothing and bedding. Babies grow too fast on these things. So Junior or Princess can use a baby bed, blanket, bib, dress, t-shirt or tracksuit only for a few weeks or 2-3 months (if you’re lucky!). To some, that would seem like a waste of good money. Also, most babies get a lot of clothes. So one more might not make as much noise.
Personalized baby gifts that last a long time are not very hard to find. You just have to think a little more. How about a tote bag to store the toys? You can personalize them by engraving the child’s name. Plus, many companies even offer you bags in different colors, so you can have gender-specific bags, if you’d like. Baby toys, bags, books, clipboards, and wall art are gifts with a lot of “life” in them.
Babies are a wonderful gift of nature. They bring sunshine and happiness wherever they go. Therefore, it is natural that people want to pamper and pamper them to the fullest before the brief years of childhood are completely gone. Personalized baby gifts are a great way to make any baby feel like royalty! So, go ahead and please them.
