A good growth chart is really like a timeless heirloom. It’s a visual representation of your child’s growth, holding memories and milestones much like a baby book — except you can hang it on the wall like art. And unlike a door frame, you can carry it from house to house so that none of your measurements are lost.
We think growth charts make the best baby shower, holiday or birthday gift, so we rounded up our top 5 favorites for you to choose from:
This customizable growth chart from Inklore is block-printed by hand on natural canvas for a classic, antique look. Not only can you add your child’s name, but you can even customize the colors to work with your decor. (Etsy, $58)
This colorful 72-inch wall decal from WallCandy Arts helps measure kids while also keeping track of fun facts — like when your kid is as tall as a fire hydrant (above), a penguin and a horse. And don’t worry — the decal is completely removable and reusable. (WallCandy Arts, $32.)
These new Pincushion Growth Charts are screen-printed by hand on organic cotton canvas in a variety of styles. And not only can you add your child’s name, but you can also personalize your chart with pictures, meaningful quotes and special information. The kit also comes with embroidery materials and templates to further personalize your heirloom-to-be. (Bellamie Boutique, $70.)
