Never fear. Here is a list of 10 personalized baby shower gifts that won’t get lost in the sea of wipes, burp rags, and butt creams.
10. Engraved Keepsake Box
This beautiful keepsake box with Swarovski crystals can be engraved with baby’s name or a personal message. And, when baby is born, mommy and daddy can slip in baby’s first picture into the frame on top. Great for keeping tiny mementos.
9. Personalized M&Ms
Always a hit at baby showers, M&Ms can be personalized with fun little messages, baby’s name (if the gender is known), or anything you want for mommy-to-be! Comes in assorted colors, or you can get an all-blue or all-pink mix.
8. Monogrammed Hooded Towel
These adorable hooded towels come in pink or blue, and in various different animals, including the pictured raspberry rabbit, pink or blue bear, and blue elephant. Monogram baby’s name for a personal touch on any gift to make it extra special.
7. Baby’s Favorite Wooden Bookends
Bookends make a unique and useful gift that will help put the finishing touches on little miss or mister’s nursery. These are adorably painted and have plenty of room for the child’s name or special message.
6. Family Pride Onesie
Yes, you can get mommy, daddy, and their new little cub personalized matching shirts and onesie. Just imagine the family photos!
5. Baby’s Name Step Stool
This personalized two-step stool will be cherished (and used!) for many years. Made of sturdy maple and birch, the lettering comes in either primary or pastel colors, and you can even add a theme with additional puzzle pieces like trains or ladybugs and flowers.
4. Baby’s First Ornament
Everyone needs a “baby’s first” ornament to hang on their tree around the holidays. You can add the name and year to this beautifully carved specimen, which is sure to become a family heirloom.
3. Toy Chest
A good toy chest is a gift that will come in handy even before baby is born! A great place to store all those gifts while mommy and daddy are getting everything organized, it will also double as a bench when the little tike is older. This comes in a variety of finishes to work with any décor.
2. Child’s Growth Chart
A child’s growth chart is a must-have for any new family. This will make a charming gift, and mommy-and-daddy-to-be will appreciate your thoughtfulness for years to come.
1. Baby’s First Year Photo Frame
This Baby’s First Year photo frame is the perfect way to document, in pictures, the new bundle of joy’s development in that fleeting first year of life. This frame shows the child’s name in up to 25 characters (great for twins!) and comes in pink or blue.
