There is a new beautiful baby in the world and it is time to celebrate; whether you are celebrating as a grandmother, sister or you are a new mom yourself, you will want to mark the occasion in a special way. Choosing to purchase a keepsake that will stay with the baby as it grows up is something that many of us turn to at a time like this. However, what to buy is the main question. Here are some of the cutest and most meaningful keepsakes that will hold memories throughout the rest of your child’s life.
A Charm for the Perfect Charm Bracelet
Charm bracelets have become part of jewelry heritage over the past few years and rightly so. They are beautiful, fun and most of all you can make them your own by building them up with charms that hold memories. That is exactly what makes this baby bassinet charm from Michael Hill so precious. This is a gold charm and a wonderful option to commemorate the birth of the little one.
A Bronzed Cast of the Babies Little Feet
Creating works of art from the newborns hands and feet is a fairly modern phenomenon in the keepsake market. There are hundreds of ways that you can keep the images of those little toes with you for life, from painting the feet and printing them on plates, through to adding the prints to clothing. One of the nicest ways to keep the memory alive is to have the babies feet cast in bronze so that they can be displayed for life.
This may sound a little worrying, but the process does not involve putting the newborns feet into any form of plaster. A jelly mold will be made and then filled with the material of your choice; from bronze to solid silver if you prefer.
A Memory Box
A memory box does exactly what the name suggests; it holds all of those special memories from the first scan photo, through to the newborns first hat. You could make your own box, or buy one that is specifically made for this purpose, either way it is the items that you put inside that make this special.
If you are wondering what you could place inside, then just consider all the separate parts to being pregnant and having your baby. It could be the paper result confirming the pregnancy, the hospital ID bracelet, photographs and everything in between.
Name a Star
This is the one keepsake that you can’t physically keep at home but it is one that is guaranteed to last for millennia to come. There are many gift companies that offer you the chance to name a star after someone special and a new baby in the family is extremely special. Although you may not be physically able to see the star you choose, you will get a pack with a certificate that lets you know that it is yours and named after the new bundle of joy! When they grow up, what could be a nicer thought than to know that there is a star out there named after you?
