Keep tight hold of those precious memories with these beautiful keepsake gifts for baby boys and girls.
Bringing a baby home for the first time is such an exciting experience. There are so many firsts for the new family member to experience — the first time they meet the family dog, the first time they meet their brother or sister, the first time they sleep through the night, their first dreaded sleep regression.
The first year can pass by in a haze of excitement, mild anxiety and sleep deprivation. We experience so many emotions — sometimes all at once — and while you’re in the thick of it, you might think “I’ll never forget this.” While certain memories will cement themselves for life, unfortunately, that won’t always be the case. Some memories, even treasured ones, can fade. And when that happens, you’ll be glad of a few keepsakes.
Here at The Baby Hamper Company, we have a number of keepsake gifts for baby boys and girls — perfect little mementoes of those first months with your beautiful baby. Whether these keepsakes are for you or for a loved one, you’re bound to find something below that will call to you.
1. Baby Milestone Cards
These adorable, colourful milestone cards are just what you need to remember the small but important moments. That time your baby smiled for the first time, the first time they rolled over or ate solid food — grab the appropriate card, place it by your bundle of joy and snap a photo. And don’t forget to upload it to Facebook, so each year the memory will pop up and give you a smile. So many little moments add up to the development of a human being, and you don’t want to take any for granted.
Grab your baby milestone cards here.
2. Personalised Baby Bedroom Pennant Flag

3. Personalised Keepsake Traditional Teddy Bear

This keepsake bear comes with a real leather luggage tag, personalised with your child's name. Made by luxury French toymaker Moulin Roty, this bear will be a hit with both mum and baby.

5. Personalised Aden + Anais Musy Mate
We’ll let you in on a secret — Aden + Anais create the sweetest, softest, loveliest muslins you could ever hope to find. They’re perfect for a baby’s delicate skin, yet they’re sturdy enough to survive cycle after washing cycle. We all know that muslins are a must-have for any newborn — and an Aden + Anais muslin is the king of muslins.
If you want to go one step further, then this personalised musy mate is exactly what you are looking for. Attached to the muslin is an adorable cow face, and you can get your baby's name emblazoned across the front.
This Aden + Anais Musy Mate is a firm favourite with mums (and babies!).
