It’s never too early in the year to start squirreling away all the treasures to spoil the smallest holiday revelers, and if you plan on purchasing something and having it personalized, the sooner you shop, the better.

Personalized or customized gifts can become keepsakes that are treasured for years to come or even passed down to future generations. I still have a tote bag that someone gave me in elementary school because it had my name on it. With an old-fashioned name like Esther, it was always hard to find things with my name, so that little tote was especially meaningful. Choosing a personalized gift for baby means that it’ll always be something special just for them.

Rattles and teethers are the perfect first toy and when they’re personalized can become mementos that will always transport you back to that first magical holiday. The beautiful rattles from Roma Rattles are handmade of maple, oak and cherry by a husband and wife team in Portland. With the Personalized Baby’s First Christmas Keepsake Wooden Rattle, you can select a wood burned message and your favorite color ribbon to create a really special custom gift.

Your little one may be too young to appreciate any of the gifts they get their first year, but everyone will appreciate the memories kept and brought out year after year in a personalized picture frame.

While ornaments seem like an obvious suggestion for a holiday gift, you only have one opportunity to select baby’s first ornament. Fortunately there are hundreds or even thousands of ornament options and you’re bound to find just the right treasure to adorn your annual tree. Baby’s First Christmas Personalized Hand Embroidered Holiday Keepsake from September House features a cute printed design and an embroidered name.

A comb and brush set is a classic baby gift that your grandparents and even great-grandparent may’ve gotten. You can carry on the tradition or start one of your own with a beautifully engraved silver or pewter set. Try just your last name or initials for maximum passing-down possibilities. From Salisbury Pewter, the Personalized Brush and Comb Set can be engraved with the recipient’s initials for a magnificent gift that is sure to impress.

The first place I think of to shop for personalized gifts is Things Remembered, and they happen to have a wonderful collection of Melissa and Doug toys that can be personalized for holiday gift giving.

A classic wintertime gift is a sparkly, beautiful snow globe. Add some holiday magic to baby’s decor by mixing in a snowglobe or two. They’re too little to want to play with them yet, but as they get older, they’ll love their personalized treasure. The Giraffe & Unicorn Snow Globes from Pottery Barn Kids are glittery, modern versions of a snow globe that play Brahms’ “Lullaby.”
