A decorative twist on classic gifts
For those who prefer not to dress their babies in hard rock gear, a wealth of other unique baby gifts also exist. How about a CD of baby songs as sung by Bob Marley? Or a personalized baseball glove or bat? For those who love hunting and camping, a camouflage bib or bottle might be in order. For those who prefer to hand made unique baby gifts, how about bronzing the baby's shoes? At one time, bronzed baby shoes were an extremely popular item. While this has fallen from popularity in recent years, it continues to be a sentimental and long last creative baby gift. You can find instructions for bronzing baby shoes online.
Unique baby gifts may simply be decorative twists on classic gifts. Such common gifts as wall letters that spell the child's name and crib bedding become unique when designed in a new and unusual way. If you are at all artistic then you may be able to personalize a baby gift yourself, adding your own special touch to the gift. If you know how to knit or sew, consider making a quilt, blanket or throw for the baby's room. You could create a stuffed animal or doll as well. You can make many beautiful and decorative unique baby gifts yourself that the parents of the baby will treasure always.
Baby basket gifts
If you do not feel competent with your sewing skills, you can still make personalized baby gifts. A popular option is the infant gift basket. You could order an infant gift basket online, but it might lack the personal touch or hand selection of items that could set it apart. Instead, why not create your own personalized infant gift basket?
Baby basket gifts could consist of almost anything. First, decide on a theme. If you will give the basket at a baby shower, choose a theme that is consistent with the theme of the shower. If you are on your own, your theme could be almost anything. Next, pick an appropriate container, which may or may not be literally a basket. Finally you will be ready to purchase the baby basket gifts. For example, for a bath time theme choose baby soaps and shampoos, and then add a washcloth and hooded towel. Other baby basket gifts could include baby books, music, clothes or anything else you can imagine. Just keep an eye on how much you are spending, as it is easy for the item costs to add up fast.
Finding unique baby gifts isn't difficult at all when you take the time to look at the options carefully. The only limitation is your imagination. Do a little brainstorming, look at the hobbies and interests of the new parents, and you'll be sure to find just the right gift.
