Stop Giving Onesies, Start Creating Keepsakes

A child’s first birthday is no doubt a special time. You have watched them develop their own unique personality, likes, dislikes and quarks. Whether your child, grandchild or godchild, you care deeply about this young girl/boy and want to find them the perfect gift to celebrate this milestone.

A first birthday gift is difficult to find. By now the child has a closet full of onesies and dozens of toys that Mom finds herself constantly organizing. Each toy fascinates them for a few seconds until they move onto something else. The truth of the matter is that the child isn’t going to remember the gift you gave unless it is a gift that can be kept for many years to come.

A Gift That Stands Out

Age one is the perfect time to start a keepsake box for the child. This box can contain anything from birthday cards to favorite clothes to handmade original crafts. Some may even add a lock of their child’s hair to show how the color has changed over the years!

The box doesn’t have to be anything special. Craft stores have many choices of colors and styles of boxes that you can then decorate yourself or leave it how it is. If shopping at a craft store seems like a daunting task you can even grab an old shoebox and wrap it in the newspaper from that particular birthday as an extra addition.

The Perfect Add On

Make sure to leave room in your keepsake box for the Starrytime Blanket Full of Love set. The Blanket Full of Love blanket and book set includes a personalized embroidered blanket as well as a custom book that is illustrated to look like the child. Inside the cover of the book you are able to leave a personal dedication to express your love for the child. This set is both presently practical for the child enjoy story time and a great keepsake item to bring back memories for the child in the future.
