Personalized Baby Gifts

Every new baby will receive many, many gifts.  Some are practical, some many only last a few months, and some may fall by the wayside as the baby grows, but there are always a few  sentimental gifts that will be kept and cherished for their lifetime.  Giving a personalized baby gift is a great way to show that you care, and a personalized gift is likely to carry meaning for years to come.  Many parents hand these gifts to their children as they pass into adulthood or have children of their own, and they become part of the family heirloom.
Because of their lasting nature, many personalized baby gifts are sterling silver or silver plated, with baby spoons, and silver ornaments such a baby rattles engraved with the child's name and birth date being popular choices.
Of course that doesn't mean that personalized baby gifts are limited to items that will stand the test of time.  Clothes, bibs and other fun items can be personalized with the intention of bringing a smile to parents, family and friends.

There any many options for personalizing a gift.  The most popular choice is to use the child's name and birthdate, but you can also include a special message or your own name as a way for the child to remember you as he or she grows. A personalization such as 'To baby with love, Auntie Sue' or 'Welcome to the world, from James' are examples of how you can personalize an item even before the baby is born or named.
