Best Baby Gift!
I recently went online to find out what the masses describe as their best baby gift given to them. Besides the expected thoughtfulness of a homemade gift, the next most used and loved gift was a personalized baby blanket!
Every child grows up with many different blankets in their home. In the living room the couch blankets are cozy and comforting. The bed blankets that are tucked around them at night are special and crucial for long winter nights.
But the very best blanket is the one that they drag from room to room and maybe even house-to-house if the attachment is strong. One way to give a child a lasting and memorable gift is to gift them with their very own blanket personalized with their name embroidered on it!
There will be no doubt whose blankie it is in a house full of kids or in the home of an only-child. For a small child to see their name emblazoned on a blanket can be very special and important. It gives them value as an individual and marks that item as theirs alone.
That may be why so many have named the personalized blanket as a favorite gift. It is easy to order and makes the blanket one that will not be thrown out lightly when it gets old and dirty.
Could I even go so far as to say that a personalized blanket can add to a young child’s self-esteem? Why not? Having special ownership is a new and exciting thing to a small child. It gives them importance and place in the world and family.
It has been in the news that we should not really put our children’s names on the backs of their jackets or shirts because this can make a stranger sound like a friend if they call the child by name. But a blanket is a personal comfy friend that will not place a child in any danger.
A memorable and lifetime baby gift could very easily be the personalized blanket for both boys and girls. Keep this in mind the next time you are hunting for the perfect baby gift.
