It's All in a Name!
If you want to put a smile on a childís face, gifts do the trick! There is a certain magic in gift-giving that creates excitement and joy. Itís exhilarating to watch a childís face light up when being presented with a gift unexpectedly.
What kind of gift would make the perfect birthday gift for my dear grandkids? You know the kind of gift thatís an all-time favorite?! Thatís what I want to get!
Personalized gifts are the way to go! Many of us would opt for a personalized gift over the standard kind of gift whether youíre giving the gift or receiving it. In recent years, personalized gifts have become much more popular and preferred. Although giving a personalized gift involves more time and effort on the giverís part, it is definitely more unique, meaningful, and appreciated by the receiver. Even if the gift is a simple pacifier, giving it a personal touch will make the item more valuable and different from the plain old pacifier. Donít tell anyone, but a major perk of giving a personalized gift is that you can be sure that your gift will never get passed on to someone else!
Great idea! Theyíll be thrilled to receive a monogrammed gift from their darling grandma, but where in the world do I find the right kind of monogrammed gifts that my grandkids will adore??
aBaby.com offers you a huge variety of monogrammed gift choices. You can chose from an assortment of personalized childrenís bedding, tables and chairs, rugs, nursery dťcor, toys, jewelry, etc. Children in general, love receiving personalized gifts because it makes them feel loved and special. They will always remember who it was that gave them that gift and what occasion they got it for.
aBaby.com, here I come! But wait a second, how do I know which font to choose? Iím buying for a girl and a boy!
When placing a monogram on an item, you want to make sure that youíre choosing the appropriate font that targets the gender and age of the child receiving the gift. You may want to keep the occasion in mind too. A curly font is more feminine and perfect for a toddler while script is a little finer and is great for infants and young girls. A serif font with all capital letters is just right for boys of all ages.
Thanks, that was a great help! Now, I would also like to buy something else for them to share with each other. Should I place two names on it?
Thinking of buying one personalized gift for two siblings? A great idea would be to personalize it with the family name and initial. Doing so, allows many family members to enjoy your gift and make use of it. A family name/ initial is also great if you are buying a gift in honor of a baby shower and you donít know the babyís name beforehand.

ďItís awesome when people buy personalized gifts for my kids! I get loads of blanket gifts by each birth and Iím always thrilled when one comes with a monogram on it. To tell you the truth, thatís the one that gets used the most, while the others get stored away. My six year old son, Jackie, still sleeps with his ďJackieĒ blanket that he got when he was born. He refuses to give it up and I donít blame him!Ē
