When a gift for a new mom or baby has been custom-made or personalized, there’s no doubt it will become a keepsake. Once the baby shower or baby’s first birthday party has ended, Mom will go home and sort through her large pile of new gifts. She will likely find items she already has plenty of, duplicate gifts, or gifts that don’t match her or her baby’s needs. It’s likely they will be returned to the store, be donated or even collect dust. However, a precious gift such as a personalized baby blanket or a personalized toy chest possesses more meaning, as it was tailored specifically for her.
The most important aspect about the art of gift-giving is showing that you know the recipient really well, and that you care about them. Practicality of the gift is important to consider as well, but it’s amazing what a little bit of customization can do to make a special day or event even more memorable.
