23 One-of-a-Kind Personalised Baby Gifts in the UK

Choosing the perfect gift for a new baby is not always easy, especially not if you want to give a unique or custom gift. Anyone can pick a toy off a shelf or grab a random set of baby clothes off the rack, but personalised baby gifts are so much more special because they show the thought and love you put into choosing the gift. Read on to discover a variety of personalised baby gift ideas in the UK to wow the new parents and welcome Baby into the world!

Looking for the perfect newborn gift idea? Babies grow so quickly, so there’s nothing more important than capturing their first moments to treasure forever. Give the gift of a handprint kit to preserve baby’s first moments in a frame! Parents will be able to preserve their baby’s earliest hand and footprints and watch as their bundle of joy grows!

Rather than a framed picture print, try a baby handprint and footprint ornament kit or inkpad to create that perfect memory!

If you want a personalised baby gift, consider a custom-made piece of decor. A birth chart poster makes an excellent piece of decor in any nursery, but it also serves as a lovely keepsake idea to capture the baby’s unique features. Display the baby’s birthday, length, weight, star sign, birthstone, and more in a beautifully designed poster.

Instead of a framed art print, get creative with a baby birth chart cross stitch pattern or personalised storybook art print!

I like this one because it has a variety of sizes and textures on the chain that will keep the baby entertained and occupied.
