The exciting news of a good friend or family member having a baby is about as special as it gets. There is no better way to put a stamp on their exciting moment in time than by marking the moment with a sweet keepsake. We combed through some absolutely beautiful options and have listed our top picks for you to consider for your loved ones and their new little ones. From baby showers, to baptisms, to birthdays and first communions, a well thought out gift is sure to warm some hearts. While we all know material items come and go, I think we can agree that giving a heartfelt gift only makes special occasions even that much more special!
Before you scroll down to look at our top picks, don’t fret about not having the time to run out and find any of these items. They can all be found online, which is such a convenience in making it all fit in a day’s to-do list! And now you don’t need to worry about searching for ‘special baby gifts’ online, because we believe you will fall in love with at least one of the options below. We hope this blog entry helps you to narrow down your options and select a gift almost as special as the baby receiving it.
Boutross Company Christening Bonnet Bow/Knots
These handmade pure linen baby bonnets become hankies with just the snip of a button. The hanky can be passed down as ‘something used’ for a wedding or simply tucked away in a safe spot to reflect on down the road. These are even gift boxed with a poem insert.
Christening Bible with Silver Cover
A silver heirloom quality christening bible always makes the perfect gift. To add a personal touch you might choose to engrave the baby’s birthdate on the back with their initials.
Empire Sterling Silver Baby Cup Beaded
This classic baby cup is adorable for baby showers, birthdays, and baptisms, and makes the perfect keepsake. These sweet little cups are also great for decorating. From tying them with a ribbon and hanging them on a chandalier for baby shower décor, to using them as bud vases or displayed in a grouping- pewter or silver baby cups are timeless.
Empire Sterling Silver Baby Dumbbell Rattle
Nothing says new baby like a pewter or sterling baby dumbell rattle!
Empire Sterling Silver Round Teething Ring
These sweet teethers are petite and discreet to give as gifts when you are looking for that perfect little something. They also make adorable Christmas tree ornaments, allowing you or the baby’s parents to reflect back on when their child was a little one!
Reed & Barton Classic Channel Frame
Just the gift to capture a special event! A nice frame is sure to be received with a smile and will cause others to smile too as they look at the sweet baby or child pictured.
Reed & Barton Silverplate Victorian Curved Handle Baby Spoon
This precious keepsake is ideal for baby boys and girls alike. We love the curved handle, which makes it easy for little ones to hold. Placing this spoon next to a picture is a nice way to display it, or in a keepsake drawer. As with many of these heirloom quality gifts, this spoon is precious to decorate with when hosting baby showers or a baby’s baptism or christening get-together.
No question about it, Herend is in the business of timeless pieces. From Herend’s baby booty, to the cross, or a small animal figurine. All of Herend’s collectibles are excellent for giving to loved ones on special occasions to commemorate life’s most notable occasions.
