There are babies… and there are baby gifts. The kind 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 gift. You’d need to go to an upscale store like Saks or Neiman Marcus and select from the horrendously expensive cashmere, silk or other totally impractical materials. High fashion and huge price tags are what matter.
But, if you’re more interested in gifting meaningful baby gifts, then, you need to think a little farther than silk dresses (that easily stain) and automated robots (that cost a fortune).
Personalized baby gifts are an excellent way of greeting a precious baby. There are many reasons why personalized baby gifts can earn you lots of brownie points with the baby and its parents. For the parents, their new baby is the center of their existence. So, they are bound to be thrilled by any gesture that is aimed at the personal happiness of their baby. For the baby, personalized gifts are excellent keepsakes – something to be delighted about when they look back after many, many years.
So, here are some excellent personalized baby gift ideas.
Some gifts are universal, meaning all babies need them. Baby blankets and pacifiers are excellent examples. You can add an extra element of thoughtfulness by personalizing these gifts. For instance, how about getting the baby’s name or date of birth engraved on a soft fleece blanket? Personalized pillowcases, 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 follow up on. Boy gifts are different from girl gifts. For instance, if it’s a baby girl, you might want to gift her a personalized sweater with a monogram on it. Or, you may even want to gift a personalized baby bib with matching burp clothes. Little boys look oh-so-cute when they’re dressed in shortalls and t-shirts that carry their name.
If you desire to gift something that can be used for a long time, obviously, you need to think about something other than clothes and bedding. Babies overgrow these things pretty fast. So, a baby bed, blanket, bib, dress, t-shirt or sweat suit can be used by Junior or Princess only for a few weeks to 2-3 months (if you’re lucky!). For some, that would seem like a waste of good money. Besides, most babies do get an armful of clothing. So, one more may not make that much of a splash.
Personalized baby gifts that keep for a long time are not very hard to find. You just need to think a little harder. How about a tote bag for keeping toys? You can personalize these by having the child’s name engraved on them. What’s more, many companies even offer you totes of different colors, so you can have gender specific bags, if you so wish. Baby toys, bags, books, boards 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. So, it is only natural that people want to spoil them and pamper them to their heart’s content before the brief childhood years vanish altogether. Personalized baby gifts are a great way to make any baby feel like royalty! So, go ahead and indulge them.
