5 Personalised Keepsakes to Welcome Baby to the World

Whether you’re celebrating the birth of a friend’s newborn, attending the Christening of a nephew or niece or organising your own baby’s first birthday party, a personalised gift makes a thoughtful present and one that they can treasure as they grow up. Here are five ideas for beautiful personalised keepsakes that will give a new baby a warm welcome into the world.

1. Keepsake box

A keepsake box makes a wonderful place to keep treasured items from baby’s first months and years, from hospital wrist bands to their first tooth. Our personalised ‘Animal Friends’ white leatherette keepsake box fits the bill perfectly, as does our personalised wooden ‘Twinkle Twinkle’ keepsake box.

2. Their first money box

It may be a few years until they learn the importance of saving money, but a money box makes a lovely first present that they can treasure forever. Our popular silver-plated carousel money box – which has horses that move up and down as it turns – can be personalised with their name and a short message, perhaps one marking the occasion. Alternatively, you could go for a traditional ‘My First’ piggy bank

3. Toys and puzzles

All children love soft toys, and we have lots of different ones to choose from that can be personalised for a special gift worthy of any occasion. Our favourite are our personalised MeToo dolls, which make gorgeous gifts that both boys and girls can grow up with. Wooden toys are a fun and long-lasting alternative, such as our personalised wooden dumper truck, while puzzles such as our Peppa Pig shape sorter camper or our ‘Dear Zoo’ puzzle blocks aid their cognitive development in their early years.

4. Story book

What could make bedtime reading more exciting than a storybook that features them in a starring role? Our personalised story books make wonderful gifts, and our unicorn story book gift set is even more special, as it comes with a plush unicorn toy for them to have on the bed or cradle.

5. Art work

Finally, you can’t go wrong with personalised art work to adorn their nursery walls. We love this ‘Starry Night’ personalised framed print, which makes the perfect memento of a newborn’s birth. You’ll find lots more personalised prints in the wall art section of our shop.
