Baby’s name is super-special. It represents their individuality, but it also pays tribute to their family ties. And since their parents put so much thought into choosing their child’s moniker, anything that celebrates it is automatically super-special too. Cue monogrammed baby gifts, which make for timeless, personalized presents for a baby shower, baptism or even a first birthday party. The following examples range from cute to classic, but they all have one thing in common: They’re thoughtfully customized with a signature touch.
