Searching online is one of the easiest ways to find unique baby gifts; there are many items that can be ordered, delivered and paid for with just a few clicks of your mouse. The only downside with shopping on the net is it can take some time to surf through all the mass produced products to find something a little different.
Here are a few unique suggestions if you would like to steer away from the traditional baby gift giving route:
Horoscope: You could find an online astrologer and have a chart prepared for the newborn. This can be lots of fun for the new mum and dad to read about what is ahead (according to the stars) for their bouncing babe. However, this can be an expensive exercise if the parents have no belief in astrology.
Time Capsule or Gift Basket: In a special box you could include all sorts of goodies that mark the day the baby was born, such as newspaper clippings and the current number one single.
Hand and Feet Casting Set: A casting set is probably something you wouldn’t buy yourself but they do provide wonderful memories of just how small baby’s hands and feet were.
Mood Enhancing CD: These unique albums contains the soothing but familiar sounds of a mother’s womb and heartbeat combined with sweet harmonies.
A Potted Tree: Planting a tree is a great way to commemorate the birth of your child with a living and lasting gift. As the tree grows, so does your baby.
If you would like to buy something a little more traditional but something that still has a unique element you could always opt for handmade baby gifts. With a handmade gift you can usually personalize the product with baby’s name, birth date and maybe even your own special message.
Here are a few examples:
Hand Painted Personalized Plate: This can brighten up any nursery wall and can also be kept as a keepsake for many years to come.
Sterling Silver Baby Gifts: Most sterling silver products like brush sets, cutlery sets, cups and porringers can also be given a personal touch with engraving.
Baby Blankets and Linen: Gorgeous baby blankets and linen can be embroidered or knitted with baby’s name and birth date.
Each of these could be part of a baby shower basket.
