Gifts from baby: a cute quote especially for grandma
Mommy or daddy can get creative with baby and both do their handprints and / or footprints for your partner or the grandparents.
You can also create great and colorful art pieces with baby's hand or footprints like transferring footprints into a butterfly:
This set contains non toxic paints and comes in pink for girls and blue for little baby boys. A great keepsake that all parents and grandparents will love.
Get the grandparents a couple of classic children's books they still know from their own childhood. Whether it is fairytales by the Brothers Grimm, Goodnight Moon or the Three Little Pigs, grandma and granddad will love to read these well-known stories over and over again to their grandchild(ren).
Choose your best smiling baby picture and have it printed on a coffee mug. Add a slogan like 'Hello Granny!' or 'Good Morning Grandpa!' and you have a gift that will make those proud grandparents happy every day!
Get those new grandparents a cool T-shirt with a funny slogan like 'Best Grandma', 'This is what a cool grandpa looks like', 'Grandpa gone wild', 'Grandpa is my name, spoiling is my game', '#1 Grandma',... Thus, everybody can see, this person is a proud grandma or grandpa! You can also get personalized tees saying 'Emma's Grandpa' or 'Luke's Grandma', etc.
Get baby a slogan onesie like 'I love my grandma', 'If you think I'm good looking you should see my aunt' (or uncle), 'Mommy rocks', etc. Take a picture of baby wearing it, frame it and give it to the grandparents, aunt, uncle, mommy, daddy, etc.
Special - gifts from baby for Xmas:
Most of the gift ideas above also very well qualify for Mother's Day, Father's Day and Valentine's gifts from baby. But since these days have sort of a special 'love meaning', consider the following variations.
If you want a 'low budget' gift from baby just buy a nice card - for Mother's Day, Father's Day or Valentine's Day -, write on it how much baby loves his dad or his mom and sign it with baby's handprint or footprint (ordinary watercolors will do for that purpose and they easily wash off baby).
Give baby a good start into the family by exchanging gifts with an older sibling or cousin. Once daddy and the sibling(s) come into the hospital to see the new baby for the first time, have little gifts from baby for the big brother or big sister. This doesn't have to be a big thing but just a little something. How about a cuddly teddy bear for the brother or a (small) doll for the sister so they can have a 'baby' to look after and care for, too? In return the sibling brings a little something for the new baby - how about a cute pacifier or baby rattle? By exchanging gifts the new sisters or brothers can start to bond in a cute way.
Create a personalized magic photo mug from your favorite baby photo. Check out Snapfish or Walmart for this fancy gift from baby. The magic photo cup looks just like a 'normal' unicolor mug. But once you pour a hot beverage into the mug you can watch baby's photo appear as if by magic! It's simple to create, just choose the photo you want to appear on the mug and let Snapfish or Walmart, or any other photo service offering it, do the rest. A really unique gift idea especially if the presentee never has seen such a mug before!
Buy a 'Create your own tumbler'/ 'Design your own travel mug' and insert either baby's photo or print its hand- or footprints or even both as well as some nice text to personalize it. With a bit of creativity you can come up with a great and cute artwork everyone will love. The DIY tumblers and travel mugs come in various colors and with various designs to do your artwork on.
Personalized Book for Grandma or Grandpa
