Personalized gifts for kids are the perfect way to celebrate a new baby’s name, keep fighting kids from taking each others’ stuff, or treat a mom to something really special. From comfy kid chairs to lovely lockets, these are the personalized gifts you’ll give to friends and snap up for yourself.
Close to Your Heart
Jewelry is always a great way to express your personality. Take that to the next level by wearing a necklace unique to you. Capsul Jewelry makes beautiful made-to-order necklaces that go beyond the standard nameplate. Instead, wear an engraving of a loved one's heartbeat or a name written in Grandma's gorgeous cursive handwriting. Or, have your child's drawing crafted out of gold to wear on a chain. A locket personalized with your initials means you can always update the photos you keep close.
Capture Special Moments
Create a Tinybeans photo book with your child's memories and have a special way to look back at when your kiddo was little. You'll love having a photo book of all your kiddo's adorable moments!
A Book About You
The main character in Wonderbly books shares your child's name and looks like them too! Or, get a book all about your favorite siblings or about mom. Check out My Mommy the Superhero. For a twist on the personalized book, try Cali's Books. A parent or relative who lives far away can record themselves reading a classic like Jack and the Beanstalk or Cinderella. Older kids can also write, illustrate and record their own "My Story" book.
Stick 'Em Up
Kids (and sometimes moms) are pros at misplacing things. Get a pack of Mabel's Labels and stick your child's name on everything from water bottles to jackets and mittens. It's the easiest way to give absolutely everything that personal touch, and to keep track of your items.
Parenting is all about multitasking, and a notebook that works for you keeps you on track. Use it for to-do lists, important phone numbers, things to remember, and instructions for babysitters. Plumb Paper lets you customize every aspect of your notebook, from the type of binding to the layout of the pages to the cover artwork. Get your name printed on the front so your kids won't mistake your to-do list as a place for doodles. If your little one can't read yet, put your photo on the cover instead so there is no room for confusion.
That's Where I'm From!
Well Told Designs do personalization in a meaningful way. A blanket with a starry sky the way it looked the day your baby was born or the night you got married will make you smile every time you get cozy under it. Or, spend every morning having your coffee in a mug with a map of your hometown or your favorite travel destination to let your mind drift to treasured memories or future travel plans.
That's My Chair!
Delta Children will personalize everything from bookshelves to chairs with your child's name. Choose your favorite color combos and font to give your child's bedroom or playroom a truly custom look. Then, the next time a sibling tries to claim the best seat in the house, a lucky child will get to exclaim, "Actually it does have my name on it!"
For a personalized work of art, check out Mollygrams for framed prints of your child's name written in beautiful watercolors that reflect your child's personality. This personalized art looks great in a nursery and will grow with your child. Or, get a print with your family's last name to display in the living room that reflects favorite outdoor activities, like skiing, sailing or walks in the woods.
