The Best Personalized Gifts for a Baby Shower
Is it just me, or did 2020 seem like a never-ending stream of pregnancy announcements and baby showers? Even though birth numbers did decline from 2019, there still seemed to be an endless string of virtual baby showers to attend. The usual conundrum on what to get for the parents-to-be, or the new baby is less problematic because most parents sign up for a registry. While buying gifts from the registry is easy, it’s also boring. If you’re looking to get something a little extra special for the next baby shower - this list of personalized baby shower gifts is a great place to start!
While this isn’t exactly a baby shower gift, it still makes a wonderful keepsake for new parents. This customized framed pebble art piece features tiny pebbles that make up the baby’s feet. The framed piece also has the baby’s name, weight, and date of birth printed. The pieces are handmade and can also be personalized for weddings and other special occasions.

The chart can be hung or laid on the ground and makes a really great background for those periodic Instagram posts! You can also choose to add the words “Love you more than all the stars” at the bottom of the chart.

The album can hold 40 photos, and even has space to write little captions and notes about each photograph.
