Have you looked at a child's eyes? So inquisitive they are! Those little eyes yearn to grasp everything around them. Their tiny lips want to say so much. With their faces so expressive and actions so innocent, children are nature's sweetest creations. Finding the right gift for a baby might seem easy, but is quite difficult.
Gifting newborns is the celebration of their coming into this world. A baby book could be a unique gift for them. These are books in which the parents can keep records of small and big events in the baby's life right from the first day of his life.
Gifting toddlers is about cherishing their growing years, which make toys and educational games a good gift option for them. Like any other gift, the choice would depend on the baby's age, the occasion to gift, and your budget. The bottom-line is to think different and come up with a unique gift idea.
Baby book or a baby's Bible are good gift options for babies. This book can be used to record all the little things worth remembering in the child's life.
It gives the parents a chance to record their child's developmental milestones as well as small things that would go on to become a treasure of sweet memories. The book cover can be personalized to bear the child's name and/or picture.
Make a gift basket out of baby products and personalize it with a letter to the baby. (A message he would enjoy reading when he grows older; perhaps, letter addressed to the baby about his parents or about your relation with him).
Add a message tag with each gift item signifying why you chose it as a gift for the baby. Create your own symbolism for each little gift and convey through written words, what each of them means.
A birth certificate holder is a unique gift idea for a baby. There are those with and without a stand, and there are those in unique shapes. You may add keepsakes with this. Buying an insurance policy for the baby or making an investment in his name is a gift for the child's better financial future.
You could add some coloring books if you are gifting a toddler. If the child has just begun to read, begun to hold a crayon/pencil, or if he has newly begun to learn language, books could be of real help, and make a perfect gift for the kid.
Silver ornaments, baby necklaces, bracelets, or small pendants serve as some nice and useful gifts for babies. It's a good idea to base the choice of pendants on the zodiac sign of the kid. Including the baby's birthstone in the jewelry item is another idea. Or you could gift them a locket and baby earrings.
Babies of a slightly greater age could be given easy learning material. Alphabet building blocks and word builders are some popular options. Nowadays, learning kits are offered as CDs and DVDs that turn out to be interactive gifts for kids.
A variety of baby gifts is available. Many of them come at reasonable prices. If you are ready to shell out more money, you can make expensive choices. Base your gift idea on the occasion of gifting and the utility of that gift item to the baby and the parents.
