Baby showers are always fun and a great way to get together with friends and relatives. There are fun games, good food, and of course, opening of the presents. While many guests give the traditional gifts such as diapers, blankets, baby clothes, and diaper pails, I prefer to seek out unusual, personal gifts.
For those also looking for a unique keepsake gift, consider ornaments or baby photo frames, not only as a gift to the mother-to-be, but as favors for the guests. You’ll probably be surprised at what a cute and appreciated gift they can be. At Christmas Ornaments.com, I like that they also offer ornament stands since many ornaments are not holiday related and can be displayed year-round. The baby ornaments are available in blue and pink, in addition to neutral colors such as white, lavender and green. Most baby ornaments can be found in a variety of styles.
I enjoy Christmas Ornaments.com’s adorable baby ornaments because there is such variety. They include rattles, bottles, rocking horses, angels, blocks, baby carriages, baby shoes, diaper pins, miniature piggy banks, baby on a cloud, rubber ducky and teddy bears, just to name a few of the choices. For older siblings there are big brother and big sister ornaments too! Ornaments for twins and triplets are offered in addition to fairy tales and nursery rhyme ornaments.
For those interested in holiday related baby ornaments, they offer pink and blue wreaths, stockings, mittens, snowflakes, drums, presents, snowman, penguins, and snow babies.
ChristmasOrnaments.com also offers picture or photo frames that you can personalize with a fine tip permanent marker (or paint pen for glass ornaments). Ornaments as gifts have grown in popularity as the choices have increased over the years.
One of my favorite ornaments is the girl’s birth announcement plaque which can be personalized with the included pen once the baby is born. There is room for the baby’s name, date of birth, height and weight.
