Adorable Homemade Baby Gifts
Shopping for gifts for a newborn can be frustrating, because it’s really the parents you’re shopping for, and you don’t know what they already have. Sure, they can sign up for a registry, but even then not everyone will use the registry when buying gifts, potentially leading to multiples of the same items.
So why not make something unique and special for their little arrival? That way, you know for sure they’ll have a one-of-a-kind gift that they’ll treasure always. It may even become a family heirloom!
These adorable homemade baby gifts are sure to become treasured keepsakes. Best of all, they will be made with love, and that is something you just can’t buy.
1. Handmade Minky Baby Blankets
How cute are these handmade baby blankets? They’re made from Minky cloth, which is pretty much one of the softest materials you can buy. The fabric feels pretty darned close to real mink, hence its name. (But don’t worry, no animals were harmed making it!)
These blankets are very similar to the one Nicole Kidman was spotted wrapping her baby in, causing a great big commotion about
2. All-In-One Changing Mat
This changing mat is a great gift, because most of the changing mats that come with most diaper bags are really low quality and don’t come with any special features. They’re also typically a pain to clean, and the ones you can purchase separately can be really expensive. This handmade changing mat is made of easy-to-clean vinyl and has handy pockets on the side to hold diapers and baby wipes. Super handy for when Mom needs a hand free to hold onto the squirmy little one!
3. Diaper Bag with Divider
A diaper bag is always an essential item for any parent, and they’re sure to get at least a couple as gifts. However, most of them aren’t very well made, and you can’t always find the styles and colors you’d like. (What if the mom-to-be’s favorite color is fuchsia or orchid?) This diaper bag can be made just how she’d like it. There are step-by-step instructions with pictures to help you along.
