My Favorite Baby Gift to Give to a Newborn and their Parents

IMG_1918If you read my bridal shower gifts post then you know I am a huge fan of personalized gifts.

One of my favorite gifts for newborns (and their parents) also happens to be personalized. A birth announcement pillow is a unique gift that is a perfect addition to a new nursery and unlike newborn clothes won’t be something that gets tucked away in the back of a closet after a few months. Doesn’t my friend Mary’s son Noah look adorable next to his gift?

There are endless option to buy these sweet little gifts but I am a big fan of Etsy Store ZoeysAttic. The store has over 100,000 sales and has been around since 2008.You can see some of her designs below.
