Create a Homemade Baby Gift

A friend or a family member is about or just had a baby girl. You want to give the nicest gift but something that cannot be easily bought commercially or in stores that you might even end up with the same gift as the other guest. You want to give something one-of-a-kind that only you have thought of, something that shows you put in a lot of effort and care into it. Homemade gifts are the perfect idea to give something really unique, something that will be greatly appreciated by the baby’s parents.

A pair of tiny white socks is a perfect gift for something so fragile and delicate. Those small, adorable feet need to be kept warm and comfortable all the time and a pair of cute baby girl socks will provide that protection while making those tiny feet look fashionably chic. But while baby socks are both functional and stylish, they can also be made into decorative things that will make for a perfect, one-of-a-kind baby gift.

If you want to give a baby shirt and a pair of socks as a gift, personalize it by sewing lace around them. Add in pretty ribbons and satin flowers to bring more color and accent if you bought plain or simple shirt and socks. To make it even more colorful, buy other sets of matching shirt and socks in other colors, preferably pastel, and put them in a nice shirt box layered with tissue or a nice paper, each row containing the shirt with its coordinated socks.

How about buying a receiving blanket and a bib and add a personal touch to it by sewing lace around the items and joining them together with a pretty bow. In just a matter of minutes, you have a custom-made blanket and bib set not found in any baby shop or store.

Another great idea is to buy two receiving blankets and sew them together to make a two-ply baby blanket. Add layers of lace or ruffles to make a customized, truly unique gift. If you know the color of the nursery, buy blankets in the same color to match with the room’s theme. This will make the baby’s parents truly delighted.

A gift basket is both a useful and adorable gift. Wrap your basket in a pink blanket and tie the ends or put a matching pink ribbon at the top. Decorate with diaper pins to make your gift basket even more adorable. Fill it in with baby things in all pink for that cute bundle of joy. Bottles, pacifiers, brush, comb, powder, diapers, booties, towel, even a teddy bear, and other essentials all in pink are something the baby’s parents will truly be grateful for.

Lastly, you can create a beautiful picture and print it on cardstock. You can print the baby’s name, nickname, birthday and other important information about the baby and paint or decorate it to add a personal touch. Put it in a nice picture frame or even better, buy a simple frame and decorate it yourself.

Simple, cheap and truly one-of-a-kind, these wonderful ideas about turning baby girl socks into something more special and unique will make tiny white socks more memorable and truly last a long time.
