Personalized Holiday Gifts for Baby

The holidays are always a great time for treasured gifts, especially if it’s baby’s first holiday season. Personalized or customized gifts can become keepsakes that are cherished for years to come, and many have the potential to become heirlooms. Choosing a personalized gift for baby means that it’ll always be something special just for them.

Just remember that custom items take longer to manufacture, so if you plan on having a gift personalized and you want to receive it before the holidays, it’s better to shop sooner rather than later (and consider shipping times, too—faster equals more money).

Rattles are the perfect first toy, and when they’re personalized, they can become mementos that transport you back to that first magical holiday. This silver-plated rattle will keep your little one entertained during the early years, and once they get older, it makes a beautiful addition to your regular holiday decorations.

The newest addition to the family is going to need their own stocking for stuffing, and this whimsical design is sure to please little ones for many childhood holiday seasons. If Santa isn’t your scene, Crate and Barrel also offer this adorable style with a dog, a cat and an elf.

Whimsy Santa Stocking

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 (and it looks great on a mantelpiece).

My First Christmas Personalized Frame

$19.99–39.99

With this personalized book from I See Me! (an award-winning custom book publisher), your child is the star of the story. Their own name fills the pages, and some scenes can even include other family members’ names! Accompanying the book are a six-inch plush bear and a letter from Santa to make the holiday even more special.

A Christmas Bear for Me

$39.99

This two-in-one gift will cover several items on your holiday list. As a step stool, it’ll help your independent toddler reach the bathroom sink, the kitchen counter and the snack cupboard. As a puzzle, it’ll entertain your little one and get their cognitive and fine motor skills working. And since the puzzle is their own name, it’s a fun and easy way to familiarize your kiddo with letters and spelling.

Puzzle Step Stool

$59.99

While an ornament seems 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. This hand-painted, gold-accented rocking horse is made of fine china and brings a vintage elegance to your holiday decor.

$39.95

All aboard! A train that spells out their name will make your little one feel like the ruler of the railroad. Magnets connect the letters together, and you can order as many as you want so kiddo can keep on spelling (think multiple words and even full sentences). The cars fit on most standard wooden tracks. Keep in mind: if you want a full train, you’ll have to buy the engine and caboose separately. Also, the manufacturer chooses each letter’s color randomly, so that aspect isn’t customizable.

Spell-Your-Name Alphabet Railroad

$3.95 per letter

If your child loves to draw, then these stuffies are a dream come true (perhaps literally). The people at Budsies take your kid’s drawings and bring them to life in the form of soft, huggable stuffed animals. Handmade with high-quality materials, these unique, custom friends are sure to be cherished for a lifetime.
