Seriously, shopping for baby swag is one of life’s great pleasures. Tiny clothes, sweet keepsakes, meaningful mementos, I love it all!
They’re all fantastic, but personalized baby gifts are extra special, so I went hunting. What I found was nothing short of adorable.
If you’ve been shopping around for a baby gift, but have had zero luck, no worries because I’ve done some legwork. Check out my list of fantastic personalized baby gift ideas to inspire you!
Personalized Baby Gift Ideas
1. Babyboos Designs Personalized Baby Blanket
Every baby should have a special blankie. That’s just common knowledge. But which blankie you choose should be a reflection of the baby’s personality!
Or, you know, maybe the parents’ personalities, because, let’s face it, they’re going to be the ones oohing and aahing over the blankie for years to come.
The babyboos shop has hundreds of options to custom-order the perfect baby blanket for the new arrival!
2. Monogrammed Hooded Baby Towel
There’s nothing better than the smell of a new baby, except maybe the smell of a new baby after a warm bath.
This monogrammed terry cloth hooded towel will wrap them up into a warm, snuggly baby burrito after bathtime, just begging to be squeezed. And gnawed on. Fellow parents know it’s hard to resist the urge to gnaw on a baby, so don’t judge me.
3. Hand Stamped Custom Baby Spoons
Transitioning to baby food is so much fun. It’s hilarious to watch them learn how to finger paint with mushy peas.
It’s especially fun to watch as they learn to use a spoon. The sheer determination to get it right is so cute. These spoons are the perfect gift to help achieve that milestone!
4. “Goodnight Little Me” Personalized Baby Book
by I See Me!
This dreamy book is perfect for establishing a bedtime story routine, and they’ll have it forever because they’re the star of the story!
It’s also a gorgeous gift, the illustrations alone are mesmerizing!
The book includes the baby’s first and last name and date of birth, as well as the date when you gifted the book and your name to list on the dedication page.
5. Personalized Wood Piggy Bank
Teaching the little one to save for a rainy day will be fun with this cool piggy bank!
Handmade from organic oak, it’s a beautiful piece of decor. Because it’s crafted with the baby’s first initial, it’ll be a fixture in his or her room forever. Even when they get to the age where they want to spend their moula, they can ‘break’ the bank by unscrewing it and then start saving all over again!
6. Personalized Plush Bunny
Ohmygoodness, when I saw these plushy floppy-eared bunnies, I wanted a whole fluffle of ‘em.
Have the baby’s name embroidered on the plushy. It’s a lovely way to make the gift personal, but it’s also helpful! Everyone at daycare will know who he belongs to at all times.
7. Birth Info Keepsake Pillow
A definite conversation piece! With the baby’s birth information printed on it, this keepsake pillow will take everyone down memory lane.
It’s an excellent gift for the parents too! Each pillow is made from natural cotton canvas and is stuffed with hypoallergenic faux down. Just be sure to spot or dry clean, as the cover is not washing-machine friendly.
8. Cutie Pie Bib
You can never have too many bibs! With all of the fonts and colors this terry cloth bib is available in, you can make sure they’re all stocked up.
We think Cutie Pie is adorable, but you can personalize these bibs with whatever text you wish. Whether you want to send them special regards or include a funny note, they’ll get a lotta miles out of these little bibs!
9. Newspaper Custom Sailboat Art Print
This sweet sailboat print is perfect for a boy’s or girl’s nursery.
Choose between coral red, sunshine, and baby blue to match the decor, and have their name and date of birth displayed proudly for a piece of art they’ll keep forever!
10. Personalized Onesie or Tee
The LilMeStore at Etsy personalizes baby wear in a whole slew of themes and categories!
From shout-outs to our favorite pets, to twin humor, to name personalization, they really do have it all. Warning: once you get started browsing, it’ll be hard to stop.
11. Moon and Stars Night Light
There’s something about a sweet night light that puts the littles at ease when it’s time to head to bed. This beautiful moon and stars night light with their name etched right on it is a great way to send them to dreamland happily.
12. Wooden Board Puzzle
The perfect baby’s first puzzle! These big, bulky wooden name puzzles are easy for them to grab with those little hands. As they get older, it’ll help them learn to spell their name. For now, it’ll probably go straight in the mouth. At any rate, it’s a gifting win.
13. Woodland Animals Personalized Mobile
Woodland animals will always be a fantastic, adorable theme for a nursery, and this little mobile is the BEST. Check out that little bear with his fish! The very serious raccoon with his apple! The cozy fox with his fashionable scarf!
Sorry for all the exclamation marks, but can you blame me? The adorableness factor is just too much for this mama to handle.
14. Baby Keepsake Memory Box
Parents will treasure this memory box forever. It’s an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind gift.
The rustic pine finish is so simple and beautiful, and it’s the perfect size for keeping all those things you’ll want to remember as their sweet baby grows up. We’re lookin’ at you little tiny baby shoes!
15. Canvas Growth Chart Ruler
I don’t know about you, but my parents always just straight-up marked our heights on the wall next to the kitchen.
I’m sure if someone had made this beautiful growth-chart-turned-wall-art back in my day (yes, I’m OLD), they would’ve much rather used it instead of scribbling all over the walls.
It’s useful and probably something the new parents haven’t thought to buy themselves, making it a great gift!
Enjoy The Process
Shopping for baby gifts is an event. Take time to appreciate every cute little detail because we both know that fun and whimsical stuff disappears as we get older.
And it’s too bad, really. Wouldn’t you love to have a sleepytime book written just for you? Or a super fluffy bunny with your name on it to snuggle when you feel crummy? Come to think of it, I don’t suppose there’s any reason we can’t, right?
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a woodland animal mobile to order.
