Why Personalized Baby Gifts Are More Than Just Presents

Personalized baby gifts are special for many reasons. 

They’re more than just items to be used or played with, they’re also:

A Heartfelt Expression of Thoughtfulness, Care, and Love

When you take the time to create a unique gift, it shows that you truly care about the recipient and have put thought into making something special just for them.

For instance, gifting a new mother our You Got This! Soy Candle for that well-deserved spa day is sure to lift her mood. The candle has sea salt, jasmine, wood, and cream scents, and burns for over 40 hours.

“You Got This!” Soy Candle

A Timeless Reminder of Fond Memories

When a gift is customized with the baby's name or other personal details, it becomes a tangible reminder of a special moment. It's something that can be treasured and passed down for generations to come.

Consider our Warmies Collection. These are warm plush stuffed animals scented with dried lavender. They can be microwaved to release beautiful scents that provide a soothing effect for both mother and child.

Sloth Warmies Junior

We have Warmies of different types of animals, including puppies, sloths, pandas, bunnies, and lions. Babies love the sensory experience associated with the feeling of the soft material on their skin. They feel safe and comfortable.

And as they grow older, these animals will become cherished keepsakes and spur moments of nostalgia

A Practical and Custom-Made Memento

By customizing a practical item such as a blanket or a onesie with the baby's name, it becomes a beautiful and meaningful keepsake. It's a way to make everyday items special and add a personal touch.

When it comes to baby gifts, personalized items add an extra layer of meaning and thoughtfulness. They show that you care about the baby and their family and have taken the time to create something special just for them.

How to Choose the Perfect Personalized Baby Gift Box

There are different types of personalized baby gift boxes available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. 

1 - Pre-made Gift Boxes

Pre-made baby gift boxes are usually sold as a set with pre-selected items. They're perfect if you're short on time or you're not sure what to include in the box. 

Our Ready-To-Ship Gift Boxes include the:

Our fast shipping baby gifts are to die for. The pros of pre-made boxes are that they're convenient and easy to find. The cons are that they may not be as unique or tailored to the baby or mother’s personality. 

However, we’ve curated our products in a wholesome way to ensure that even if you’re gifting a mother who prefers a care package with bath bombs instead of shower steamers, we have the Relax Gift Box.

2 - Customized Gift Boxes

These are designed according to your preferences and specifications. You can choose the box, items, colors, and personalization details. 

The pros of customized boxes are that they're unique baby gift ideas that fit the baby’s taste. They are, however, more expensive and take longer to make.

To create a Build-Your-Own Gift Box, you’ll need to add it to your cart then fill up the cart with detail-oriented baby gifts, such as cute baby bodysuits, relaxing shower steamers, or chocolates.

Here are some of our organic baby bodysuits:

Organic Baby Bodysuit: Oh My Darling

Organic Baby Bodysuit: Little Brother

Organic Baby Bodysuit: Little Sister

"I was able to pick and choose exactly what I wanted my recipient to get. She was delighted with everything. It was very easy and I heard that everything was beautifully arranged and wrapped.” Jennifer K.

3 - Hybrid Gift Boxes

Hybrid gift boxes are a combination of pre-made and customized gift boxes. They offer the convenience of a pre-made box with the personalization options of a customized box

The pros of hybrid boxes are that they're convenient and custom baby gift boxes. The cons are that they may not be as unique as a fully customized box.

4 - Canvas/Cloth Bins

Canvas or cloth bins can be customized with the baby's name or initials and are perfect for storing diapers, toys, and other baby items. 

They double as nursery or playroom decor and can be reused for years to come.

To help you understand the scope of our services a bit better, we have built the following table:

Type Of Gift Box Description Pros Cons
Pre-made A gift box that is pre-assembled and ready to go with pre-selected items Convenient and time-saving Limited personalization options. May not include all desired items
Customized A gift box that is personalized according to the customer's preferences, with options to select items, color, and design Fully personalized and tailored to the customer's preferences May be more expensive than pre-made gift boxes. May take longer to assemble and ship
Hybrid A gift box that combines pre-selected items with personalized items chosen by the customer Offers a balance between convenience and personalization May not have as many customization options as fully customized gift boxes
Canvas/Cloth Bin A reusable gift box that can be used to store clothes, toys, keepsakes, or blankets after the gift delivery Unique and space-efficient May not be as top-tier as the other options

When looking for personalized baby gift boxes, consider purchasing from online stores or retailers that offer a wide variety of high-quality baby gifts, such as Giften Market. 

We offer pre-made, customized, and hybrid gift boxes, as well as canvas/cloth bins that can be personalized with the baby's name. With these tips and suggestions, you can create a one-of-a-kind baby gift that is sure to be treasured for years to come.

Make It Your Own: Ideas for Customizing Baby Gift Boxes

When it comes to personalized baby gift boxes, the possibilities are endless. Whether you want to add a personal touch or create a one-of-a-kind keepsake, customizing your baby gift box is a great way to make your present stand out. 

Here are some ideas to get you started:

1 - Custom Sizing

Every baby is different and so, therefore, are their needs. Consider customizing the size of your gift box to accommodate the baby's favorite items, whether they be blankets, toys, or even books. 

You can even choose a basket or bin that can be used in the nursery or playroom after the gifts have been unpacked.

2 - Color Choice

Choosing a color scheme that the parents will love is another way to make the gift box unique. If you know the baby's nursery colors, consider coordinating your gift box to match. 

Or, if you want to go for a more playful look, choose bright and fun colors that will catch the baby's eye. Little ones are naturally drawn to vivid hues that captivate their curious eyes and stimulate their developing minds

3 - Showcase Your Creativity

Have fun with the personalization process. Let loose a little. For example, you can add a handmade decoration, or wrap the gift box with a Furoshiki cloth that can be used as a swaddle or burp cloth. And beautiful gift wrapping is the icing on the cake, so don’t mess up on this one. 

You could also include a small toy as a gift topper, such as a rattle or teether.

Remember, when it comes to customizing baby gift boxes, there are no rules. Curate creative baby box ideas and have fun with them.

How to Choose the Best Items for Your Baby Gift Box

When creating a personalized baby gift box, selecting the right items is key to making the gift both enjoyable and practical. 

You want to choose items that are beneficial for the baby's growth and development, while also including some fun extras that the parents will love. 

Here are some tips to help you select the perfect items for your baby gift box:

Choose Items That Are Practical and Useful

Diapers, wipes, and burp cloths may not seem like the most exciting gifts, but they’re essential for new parents. Consider including items that will help the parents take care of their new bundle of joy, such as baby bath products, swaddling blankets, and onesies.

Look for Items That Aid in Development

Consider choosing toys that are designed to aid in development, such as soft rattles or teething rings.

Toys, books, and other items that stimulate the baby's senses are excellent additions to any gift box.

Add Some Extra Touches

Along with practical items, consider including some extras that the parents will appreciate. 

Organic skincare items, like baby lotion or diaper cream, can help the baby's sensitive skin stay healthy. 

A cute and cuddly stuffed animal or a board book can also be fun additions that the baby can enjoy for years to come.

And how about the Purbebe Pixie Dust baby bathtime soak that will prepare the baby for a good night’s rest?

Expert Tip: If you're not sure what size to get for clothing items, consider going up a size to ensure the baby will be able to wear them for longer.

How to Assemble a Memorable Personalized Baby Gift Box

By now, we’re sure that you’re excited to assemble your personalized baby gift box. Well, here’s how:

1 - Start With a Sturdy Box or Basket

The first step is to choose a container that can hold all the items you want to include. Look for a durable and spacious box or basket that can double as storage for the baby's items.

2 - Add Some Tissue Paper or Filler

Before you start adding the items, line the bottom of the box or basket with some tissue paper or filler to create a soft bed for the items.

3 - Choose Practical and Meaningful Items

Remember to select items that are both useful and memorable. Consider adding practical items such as diapers, wipes, and burp cloths, along with meaningful items such as personalized blankets, toys, or books.

4 - Wrap Each Item Individually

To add an extra element of surprise and excitement, wrap each item individually before placing it in the box or basket.

5 - Add Some Final Touches

Once you’ve added all the items, don't forget to add some final touches such as a ribbon or a personalized gift tag.

6 - Present the Gift Box With Love

Finally, present the gift box with love and care. You can deliver it in person or have it shipped directly to the parents.


  • Do add items that are both practical and meaningful.
  • Do wrap each item individually for an added surprise.
  • Do present the gift box with love and care.


  • Don't overcrowd the box or basket with too many items.
  • Don't forget to include a personal touch, such as a handwritten note or a personalized gift tag.
  • Don't forget to double-check for any items that might be missing or need replacing.
