I’m not sure what’s going on – maybe there’s something in the water – but lately I’ve been receiving at least a monthly birth announcement in the mail.

When a friend has a baby and you go visit her, you obviously want to bring something with you. The main challenge with a baby gift is finding a gift that is both practical and adorable. Those are not as easy to find as you would think, which is why I am so grateful to have the option of bringing a personalized baby gift.

A really cute, affordable baby gift is a personalized baby bib. It features the baby’s photo and is one of those gifts that you just know are going to be used, becuase a baby can never have too many bibs!

Another perfect new baby gift is a personalized baby blanket, and again, I love that the personalization here is not just with text but with a photo. So cute, yet so practical! It’s a winning combination.

If you’d like to go with the “Wow! Adorable!” effect and are less concerned with making it practical, a truly cute baby gift is a personalized stuffed animal – the toy wears a t-shirt with the baby’s photo. Combine it with a bunch of flowers for a truly unforgettable gift.
