When my oldest son Dustin was born 33 years ago, a friend gave me a pair of leather baby shoes with his name and date of birth printed in silver on the bottom of the shoes. I thought it was the best gift ever! So from that moment forward it has been my unique personalized baby gift to all of my friends and family.
When there is a baby shower, I print a photo of the shoes from the website to give the mother an idea of what the gift will look like. I also wrap cute baby socks to go with the mock-up photo.
When the baby is born and I know the birth name and birth date, I order the baby shoes and have them mailed directly to the parents. Easy peasy! (I’m starting to like Princess Diana’s catch phrase a lot!)
For the first time in 33 years, I purchased a pair of shoes for twin boys. They were so cute! I even purchased a pair for Princess Diana’s son Aiden when he was born. I loved seeing his name, Aiden Dragen, in print.
In all the years I have given this unique personalized baby gift, the mothers have all told me they have never received a gift like it!
Here is the website I use to order the shoes which come in various styles for girls and boys – www.babygift.net. Tell them Queen Darlene sent you.
This precious baby’s gift idea is and always will be a unique keepsake!
