How To Choose The Best Silver Baby Gifts

Aug 1, 2008
The addition of a new baby to a family is worth commemorating with a special keepsake. At a baby shower or a first birthday party, parents often receive practical gifts such as baby clothes, blankets, strollers and cribs. But it is also perfectly appropriate to give the parents a collectible memento of this special time in their child's life. There are many different types of keepsakes available for baby showers, including picture frames and ceramic figurines. Baby gifts in silver are a wonderfully elegant gesture for the baby's parents, and if chosen carefully can be something that they will always treasure.

When you're shopping for a silver baby gift, you'll have a few different types of keepsakes to choose from. For a first baby, a silver rattle is a classic choice. Of course the baby will probably never lay a finger on the rattle until much later in life, but the parents will appreciate a gracious and timeless gift that makes a wonderful heirloom. For the birth of a first baby when you know that the parents are planning a large family, look for silver baby gifts that can be easily repeated for future siblings. For example, a silver ornament in a popular shape can be engraved with the baby's name and birthday. If you choose a silver ornament in the shape of a stork, a heart or a baby shoe, you can be sure that you will be able to find similar ornaments for later children. This will create a set of matching but not identical keepsakes for a set of siblings.

Engraved silver jewelry is also a great gift for the mother of the baby. A silver charm bracelet will allow you to give a silver charm engraved with the baby's name along with other baby-related silver charms, such as rattles, alphabet blocks or stuffed toys. Charm bracelets are extremely versatile and are another example of a gift that can be repeated for additional children. A mother with a large family will eventually have the original silver bracelet you gave her and all the charms commemorating the births of her children. Also available are silver pendants that can be engraved at the jewelers shop. Like silver charms, silver pendants can be added to a single necklace for a growing family. You might even be able to find a silver pendant with the baby's birthstone.

The most important consideration in choosing a silver baby gift is what the recipient would prefer. Above all, you want your silver baby gift to be a reminder of the special birth of a child, so you don't want it to be forgotten in a box. If you know that the mother of the baby doesn't wear jewelry, it would be better to give an engraved figurine or ornament rather than a bracelet or necklace. As long as you put some thought into your choice of a silver baby gift, you can be sure that your keepsake will always have a place in the family's heart.
