5 Keepsake Gifts for Baby's First Christmas

What's inside that box? The perfect keepsake gift for baby's first Christmas

Looking for a special gift to commemorate your baby’s first year of life? I’ve rounded up 5 unique, thoughtful gifts that will be just as special 20 years from now as they will be on your baby’s first Christmas.

  • A Rocking Horse 1 of 5

    Nothing says "Classic" quite like a handmade rocking horse. Personalize it with Baby's name (carved or painted on) and watch as it is passed down from one generation to the next
  • A Painted or Pen & Ink Portrait 2 of 5
    A Painted or Pen & Ink Portrait
    Capture your litte ones sweet baby goodness with a painted or drawn portrait. Display it in baby's nursery now and later it can take its place among your most precious hanging family photos.
  • A Memory Box 3 of 5
    A Memory Box
    I LOVE this idea. Create a customized box that can store all sorts of keepsakes from Baby's First Year and beyond - a clipping of hair from their first hair cut, the hat they wore home from the hospital & a favorite pair of booties.
  • A Quiet Book 4 of 5
    A Quiet Book
    This is something I still have from my childhood that I have passed down to my own children. A beautifully made quiet book engages little fingers and minds, is beautiful to look at and lovely to hand down.
  • A Customized Piggy Bank 5 of 5
    A Customized Piggy Bank
    Start baby on the road to financial savviness with their first piggy bank. Make it special by adding their name.
