Having a baby is not only a joyous time for the parents, but it is an occasion to be celebrated by the entire family and close friends. With all the items new parents need for a child, gifts for the baby shouldn’t be hard to select. However, with all the different choices available, it can be overwhelming to select something to welcome a newborn to the world.
There are many gifts which can be customized for the baby by having them monogrammed. Clothing, silver cups or even letters hanging on the wall over the crib can be made especially for a baby. Many monogrammed baby gifts become special keepsakes people keep the rest of their lives and even hand down to their children or grandchildren who may bear the same name.
Using connected or individual letters in the baby’s room to form their name is also a great way to introduce a child to reading. They will learn to recognize their name at an early age, which could stimulate their desire to learn and he or she may know their ABC’s way before attending preschool. The letters also indicate their room belongs to them, so it is their special place in the house to go.
A great personalized gift for a baby or young child is a piggy bank for putting in money from their allowances or gifts from the tooth fairy. Piggy banks come in a variety of colors and designs for either boys or girls, then monogrammed with your child’s name or initials.
You can teach them about why it’s important to save money and they can do so to buy a special toy they want or to spend when they go shopping with mom. Personalized gifts can be a special way to welcome a newborn to the family.
