When to give a baby a personalised gift?

When to buy a personalised gift for a baby might depend on your personal relationship with the baby and/or family and the occasion at hand. These are the most common occasions to give a personalised gift: World of Mies gift with name:

  • Birth: Giving a personalised gift at the birth of a baby is a popular tradition. It is a special way to celebrate the baby's arrival and congratulate the parents. In this case, you could probably consider a personalised gift for every new baby in your circle of family or friends. You do have to wait a while for the name in this case, so you can only order it after the birth.
  • The baby shower: Baby showers are a great opportunity to surprise the parents-to-be with personalised gifts. However, the name is often not known yet. What can therefore be done is to give a gift voucher or create a wish list in advance, where the parents can choose a personalised gift.
  • Baptism or naming ceremonies: Religious or cultural celebrations such as baptisms or naming ceremonies are also occasions when you can consider a personalised gift for a baby. Adding the baby's name on a cup, plate or box is a nice gesture.
  • Birthdays and milestones: As the baby grows, there are countless birthdays and milestones to celebrate. It can be nice to give a personalised gift for the first or second birthday. A personalised plate, chair or a growth chart with the baby's name on it are gifts that will last a lifetime and create memories.

Any gift chosen with love and care is sure to be appreciated, whether personalised or not. Mies also has many non-personalised gifts that can be given for any time. A soft hydrophilic cloth, teething blanket or baby blanket is a top gift!

  • It's unique: A personalised gift is a unique gift designed especially for the baby. By adding the baby's name or writing a personal message, you make the gift extra special and stand out from other gifts. It shows that you have invested time and effort to create something special.
  • It has emotional value: Personalised gifts often have a deeper emotional value. Adding the baby's name makes the gift personal and connected to their identity. It can create a sense of pride when they grow up and see their own name on the gift.
  • A lasting memory: A personalised gift can be a lasting memory for both the parents and the baby. It can hold a special place in the baby's room or in the child's life. Every time the gift is seen or used, it will evoke memories of the person who gave it and the special occasion for which the gift was intended. A memory box with name is of course perfect in this case because you can keep memories in it.
  • It can be very practical: Personalised gifts can be not only beautiful and sentimental, but also practical and functional. Think, for example, of personalised baby clothes, blankets, chairs or crockery. These items are often used daily and personalising them adds extra meaning.
