Homemade and Personalized Baby Gifts

A baby shower is a fun time for friends and family to get together and celebrate the soon to be birth of a new baby. Most guests will also bring something for the baby. If you want to stand out from the other guests, give the baby something that he/she can use and is unique.

Homemade Baby Goods

If you have extra time, skills and talents for making the gift, a homemade one is a great way to express how much you care. You can knit or crochet a baby outfit, that the parents will love. Mittens and booties are also a good idea. A memory box, such as a scrapbook where parents can put little keepsakes of the baby is another useful gift. Making a photo frame will always be well received and if you are not confident you can go to a craft shop and buy a kit to make it and then personalize it. All homemade baby gifts will much be appreciated by the parent.

Personalized Baby Stuff

If you do not have the talent or skills to make homemade baby gifts, you can buy an item in a baby store and personalize it. Just think about what the parents would like for their baby and turn it into an intimate and personal gift. You need to know the gender of the baby and its name before personalizing your gift. You can also ask the nursery’s theme. Make sure that the name of the baby is spelled correctly before embedding it into the gift. When you have all this information, you can start shopping for a bib set, blanket, baby clothing and wash cloth set. Choose any font and style you like. You can also put your name on the gift, so that the parents will remember who gave it.

There are so many things that you can do for the parents and the baby. Just use your imagination and think about personalizing or doing homemade gifts. The parents will love the effort and time that you put into it. Do not forget about the details of the baby before going to a store to personalize it. Homemade baby gear will be treasured by the parents and a great gift for the baby shower.

Remember, the most treasured gift received at the baby shower is not necessarily the most expensive. It could well be the one that someone has put a lot of thought and effort into, when making it.
