The Perfect Display for Baby's First Outfit


I can’t say I’m particularly sentimental, but I have at least one outfit saved from each of my children’s babyhoods. When my first daughter was born, my mother gave me the dress I was “blessed” in (blessing is similar to christening at my church). I was so delighted she had saved it! And even more delighted it was in great shape. In fact, I dressed my daughter in that very dress for her own blessing. At some point, I decided it was too charming to pack away, so I hung the dress near the crib instead — as part of the nursery decor.

When I saw these heirloom hangers from Julian & Co., I thought they would make the perfect thing to hang baby’s first outfit from. Hand-crafted from maple and sterling silver, they can even be personalized with two lines of text. Wouldn’t they made a unique gift?

What about you? Did you save your baby’s wardrobe or did you send items out the door as soon as they were outgrown?
