A building block seems an appropriate item to give as a baby gift, symbolizing the foundation of a new life.
We were delighted to receive this personalized wooden block for our little girl. Beautifully engraved with her initial on the top, the other facets show her full name and all the pertinent details of her birth: date, day, time, weight, length and location. One of the sides also recognizes the rest of the family: “proud parents” and “big sister”. Then on the underside there is a place to add a gift message. This maple keepsake is a lovely way to commemorate a newborn. I like that it is both a display piece and also something that a child will enjoy handling (without breaking). Above all I like the fact that it is U.S. made (coming from Indiana) and its organic and sophisticated feel. This is something we will treasure and enjoy looking at with our daughter as she grows; a reminder of her birth day and of thoughtful friends.
