Baby keepsake ideas
The birth of a baby is a truly special event. Whether it’s your own baby or that of a friend or family member, you’ll want to celebrate the birth of the new arrival and mark the special occasion with a beautiful baby keepsake.
But it isn’t always easy knowing what would make for a great baby keepsake. So, if you’re stuck for ideas on what to buy, here are some ideas to help you narrow down your options.
Handmade baby keepsakes
If you’re looking to find a unique baby keepsake gift, a handmade creation could be a good option for you. There are so many things you can create yourself - from blankets and quilts through to toys and playmats. There are some cute ideas over on The Idea Room website. You’ll particularly love the Rag Quilt Alphabet Letters and also the Baby Monthly Onesies. Whilst over on the Felt Magnet website, you’ll find links for 50 handmade keepsakes - including the incredibly cute Baby Birdie Mobile and the Onesie Cupcakes.
Crafty keepsake gift ideas can come in many different shapes and sizes. There are crafty keepsakes for the parents, as well as ones designed just for baby. Keepsake boxes are the most obvious choice, and you’ll find a whole host of options over on the Etsy website. You could also create your own baby gift box over on the Not On The High Street website. Whilst you’re visiting the website, check out the crafty keepsakes for baby too. Some good options include Baby’s First Sensory Watermat, the Personalised Baby Building Blocks, and the Personalised Wooden Train Set.
Handprint jewellery baby keepsakes
But if you want a lasting reminder of your baby’s birth, you have to opt for handprint jewellery keepsakes. They’re not only gorgeous, but they’re also truly unique. Each piece of jewellery features a tiny hand or footprint of your little one, so you can always keep them close to you.
Why not opt for a leather handprint bracelet or a chunky square handprint keyring for the proud new father? Your baby’s hand and footprint can take centre stage on the front, along with their name, plus you can also include a short message on the back. They both have plenty of room for engraving. In fact, the keyring can have up to eight names and hand or footprints on it - making perfect if you’ve had twins or triplets!
For the new mum, a beautiful piece of jewellery is the perfect baby keepsake. Options include this pretty large handprint heart necklace. It has room for up to three names and hand or footprints on it and a short message on the back. Alternatively, opt for a handprint heart charm bead. Available in three colour options, you can also customise it in several different ways.
A handprint jewellery keepsake is not only practical; it’s a beautiful way of celebrating a baby's birth. With a wide range of available options - from wallet inserts through to hanging star tree decorations, there’s sure to be something to suit your taste.
