Blankets, books, beanies, bibs—you name it, it’s on this list.

Babies deserve to be celebrated—they’re little wonders of the world! Pay tribute to the uniqueness of the little one in your life with a personalized baby gift. There are tons of items you can put their name, photo or birth details on, but (thankfully) you don’t have to go searching for them. We’ve rounded up the best, most creative options all in one list.

Personalized Baby Blankets

We can’t overstate the cuteness of personalized baby blankets and quilts. They’re soft, snuggly and the best ones come decorated with adorable motifs. Better yet, every time baby cuddles up in theirs, they’ll create the perfect photo op. Because you can never have too many snapshots of a sleepy, smiley baby.
