Your Go-To Gift: Baby Keepsakes

You've just learned that a new baby has arrived, and congratulations are in order!  Choosing a thoughtful and unique baby gift can be difficult, but if you have a go-to gift the work is done.

What makes a great go-to gift? It's an item that you can easily grab each time you need a gift, and know without a doubt that the recipient will love it.  It should be something that you enjoy giving, so choose an item that reflects your personality and style.  Of course you don't want to just give the same thing over and over - choose something that can be varied in color or design, or even personalized so it will be a bit different each time you give it.

 Silver Pacifier Clip

A sterling silver pacifier clip is baby's first piece of jewelry.  Unlike a standard plastic clip from the pacifier aisle, these little beauties will be an attractive part of baby's outfit.

Why we love it: 

  • great variety, with over 20 styles available
  • affordably priced from $19.99-$35.99
  • engravable clips are personalized with baby's name, monogram, or first initial
  • Get it fast!  You'll have a non-personalized gift in about a week, or a personalized clip in about 2 weeks.

Chenille Bib & Burp Cloth Set

This is the gift that started Polkadots & Moonbeams!  After receiving a set of handmade bibs at my baby shower, I was inspired to begin making them for gifts.  I experimented with different designs and textures and found that chenille is the perfect fabric for bibs - it has a unique vintage look, and the plush 100% cotton is ultra absorbent.

Why we love it:

  • both functional and fashionable.  Your go-to gift will be Mommy's go-to bib!
  • huge selection of designs with personalization available
  • Value - this is something that will be used every day and last as long as baby needs it

Birth Plate

Our hand painted ceramic birth plates are a personalized work of art to treasure for years to come.  With baby's name and personal birth stats, nothing could be more personalized.

Why we love it:

  • unique commemoration of baby's birth, bound to become a treasured keepsake
  • can be displayed on a wall or shelf, or baby can eat off of our 100% food safe plates
  • Commission a custom plate!  Our artists love to create custom designs to match a baby's room theme.

Birth Certificate Wall Tile

Baby has a real birth certificate, but our hand painted birth certificate wall tiles are suitable for display!  This beautiful and completely personal gift will add a special touch to baby's nursery decor.

Why we love it:

  • it's a personal gift that is unique only to one special baby
  • large selection for repeat gift-giving

Personalized Photo Frames

A hand painted, personalized ceramic photo frames are gifts that will be cherished throughout baby's childhood and beyond.  Personalize a frame with just baby's name, or add birth stats.  Mom will enjoy seeing her little precious one's face every day!

Why we love it:

  • personalization is versatile - you decide what name(s), word(s) and/or date(s) you want to add
  • colors options are virtually endless - choose one color or several to match any decor
  • long-lasting appeal - this will become part of the family's decor

 Personalized Art Keepsakes

Our personalized art keepsake prints are a beautiful way to tell the new baby how much he or she is loved. With charming artwork and a heartfelt poem, this matted art print will be a cherished part of the nursery decor.

Why we love it:

  • large variety of whimsical children's artwork to match any decor or theme
  • personalized with a child's name, birth date may be added
  • make it your own with the option to add your own wording in place of the poem for an additional charge
