Having a new baby in the family can turn your domestic routine on its head in no time. The dishes stack up in the sink, the vacuuming loses all importance despite the fact that your carpets are fast becoming an alternative modern art form with a life of their own, your personal appearance takes a downward slide and the idea of wholesome meals become a distant but fondly remembered family event.
However, it does not take long to accommodate the new baby into your daily pattern, as you find that sleeping is once again an option for all who reside under your roof, and you find that your organisational skills soon return. Once you find that you do have time to think, you can consider marking the little love’s arrival with a special baby gift. You will have received some lovely gifts already from family and friends, but you feel that it is fitting to mark the occasion with a baby gift to your child that can be cherished forever. We all have our own baby keepsake of some kind or other, perhaps a gift from a godparent, grandma or grandpa, or great aunt, and we do accumulate special memories through these items. I have a ragged old teddy that looks as though she should be in an antique shop window, but no matter how aged she and I both appear, I would not be without her.
There are so many lovely keepsake baby gifts ideas for you to think about giving, but each one will hold sentimental value for your child as he or she grows older. This kind of baby gift is perhaps the most difficult type of gift to choose, particularly as you recognise the fact that it will be a part of your young baby’s life for ever.
When you look at your new baby and his or her cute little feet, it is hard to imagine them growing into size 7s stuffed into a pair of chunky walking boots or killer heels, and so to keep the memory for yourself and to let your son or daughter realise just how cute and tiny they once were, a Wood Frame Baby Casting Kit will preserve the memory for all time. This lovely gift consists of all the bits and pieces, paint and frame required to produce a stunning keepsake that can be hung on the nursery wall. You can make up to 8 casts of little feet and hands and display them in a box frame, with a choice of 4 different frame styles including distressed or silver finish, traditional antique pine or smooth light oak pine finish. A beautiful gift that will be unique to your child, it will be something that you will be proud of.
