adorable baby gifts

Whether you're shopping for a baby gift to celebrate a pregnancy, birth, or first birthday, getting something personalized makes it an extra special present. Move beyond pinks and blues with these thoughtful gifts, all of which can be embroidered, printed, or decorated with the baby's name or initials.

10 Personalized Baby Gift Ideas

1. Plush animals

Stuffed animals are cute, cuddly, and easily embroidered. Teddy bears, bunnies, and lambs make lovable gifts for special occasions like Christening, Valentine's Day, and Easter.

2. Pillows and blankets

Personalizing a receiving blanket or baby pillow makes baby's trip home from the hospital an even cuter photo opportunity. Have the baby's name or monogram stitched into the fabric of the item, or have special photos printed onto it.

3. Onesies and baby bodysuits

Baby clothes can make a statement besides "Welcome to the World!" Get creative and design a onesie or pajamas and include the baby's name.

4. Christmas tree ornament

Baby's first Christmas is a big deal and the perfect time for a customized gift. Personalize a Christmas tree ornament with birth stats like time of birth, weight, and length.

5. Growth chart

Help the baby's parents track their child's height with a personalized growth chart. These come in a wide variety of styles and designs, making this an engaging piece of wall art and keepsake.

6. Building blocks

Personalized wooden blocks can be engraved with baby's name and custom designs. Blocks can also be engraved with letters so that putting them in a line spells out the name.

7. Books

Make baby the star of his or her bedtime (or daytime) story with a personalized book. Insert the baby's name into classics like On the Night You Were Born or Elmo Loves You! and the child will listen raptly as you read.

8. Name puzzle

Puzzles help a young child learn logic, fine motor skills, shapes, and colors. A puzzle featuring the letters of a child's name will encourage letter recognition and name spelling.

9. Piggy bank

A ceramic piggy bank for baby's savings (or college fund) can be customized with paint, stickers, or an engraved silver plate.

10. Pacifier clip

For the parents of newborns, a pacifier clip is a back-saver--no more bending over to retrieve binkies when baby spits them out. Most inexpensive clips have space to write in baby's name with a ball point pen, but there are upgraded versions that feature the name engraved or embossed.
