Make Your Party Special With A Personalized Baby Shower Gift

Aug 19, 2008
There are a dozen effective and beautiful ways to personalize any baby shower gift and the results can make a gift truly special.

A gift could be personalized by putting a sticker on the base, embossing it on the side or stitching it across the top. And your addition could show the baby's name, the parents' names, the grandparents' names or the name of the giver.

The gift can even be decorated by adding a meaningful phrase, logo or photo. The text could be selected by the giver or conceived by the designer of the gift. A logo can be drawn by a professional or by the person who picks out the gift. A photo might be selected from a range of stock images or supplied by the giver and incorporated into the baby gift.

Personalization quite literally transforms an impersonal present into a keepsake which is going to be treasured for many years. It provides a reminder of festive occasions and imparts an incentive to pass the gift on from one generation to the next. Monogramming can add a name to items made of cloth and printing can personalize any item which can absorb ink.

A Slumber Bear, for example, makes for a wonderful gift. Children adore the soft, teddy bear design while parents are happy knowing the gift is durable and made out of good materials. In later years both parents and the then child will be able to look back on the baby shower when the gift was given and personalization will make that memory all the sweeter.

Yet another great gift is a Dilly the Duck cashmere booster pillow that provides the ideal opportunity to stitch on the baby's name. In the years to come this present will evolve from a loved nursery item to a reminder of those youthful years. Years after it has been received both parties can remember back to the many happy times spent reading a storybook while the young one's head nestled into it.

And storybooks can themselves be personalized in the shape of a Fairy Tale book that carries all sorts of of individual markings. For stories which are written by the child's parents, they can simply be signed with the author's name and date. When the book is bought then the giver can sign and date the book and print the name of the recipient. All these methods and more turn a simple storybook into a cherished souvenir of childhood.

Yet another gift that allows personalization is a birth plate on which to paint the baby's name across the rim or on the bottom. The best choice is perhaps to print the baby's name, birth date and weight along the rim to mark the birth of that very special individual who entered your life on that day.
