Well winters is now here and if we are to believe the long range forecasts we are in for another cold and snowy winter! So far it is a lot colder so those beautiful little new babys and toddlers deserve to wrapped up snug and warm in a cute blanket. To keep you both cheery on these cold days we have added two lovely new designs to our personalised baby blankets section. There is one each for the boys and girls, each having a lovely design that centres around the babys initial of their christian name.
The baby blanket for the girls is for for everyones little princess! The inital has a crown on top of the initla and a fairy wand next to it. the design is done in pinks and yellow materials and looks equally good on a pink or white fleece baby blanket.
The boys baby blanket again centres around an initial by has little planes flying around it, the applique material is done to compliment the colour of the blanket in blues or reds.
These modern designs are also perfect for hooded towels and we will be adding a range of co-ordinating gifts with these designs over the next few days. Take a sneek preview of the boys towel design below!

Baby gifts are the most common way to express the love and affection towards the new born as well as towards the parents. Although there is no such fixed timing for giving gifts to the baby, the time of christening has become a more suitable opportunity. This is a time for a party, which is thrown by the parents and many of their friends and relatives are invited. During christening, godparents are the next most important persons, besides the parents, who dole out great gifts for their godchild. This is an occasion, where personalised christening gifts are gifted to the baby. Moreover, this is where guests can get a chance to bless the newborn baby and shower him or her with gifts of their choice and such, which would be utilised.
Right thing to do
Buying items for gifting during such an occasion does sometimes put the guests into doldrums. There are so many items available in the market that it is natural for people, without any previous idea, to get into a spot. But, for people who already have kids and are experienced in buying items for their children or have attended many such christening parties, the occasion is welcome. They only need to go to the mall stores or local stores and they can find the most valuable and suitable gift for the kids. For those people, who are new to such a trend, or have small kids for themselves, it could be a learning experience to browse through different stores. It can be tough because every item they see in the shelves of these stores will entice them. But for considering the best option, they need to focus on something which can be of utility for the kid, whose christening is being done. Personalised baby blankets are perfect for this.
Age factor of the child is important for deciding the right gift. A toddler, who is not yet walking can be given small cute dolls and teddies. For girl child, dresses and frocks can be a good option. Boys can be given cars or dancing dolls. For extremely small kids, there is not much of a gender difference and therefore a dress can even be given for both boys and girls.
But if the child is a bit older, probably more than one year, then gender differences will have to be kept in mind for buying the right item. Cartoon character toys are available for boys while girls can play with rooms decorative sets. Also, girl child can have cosmetic items and a few numbers of dolls, whom they can play with by decorating. Puzzle and scrabble games are suitable for all children. Even necklaces and bangles can be brought in for the girl child, although there are few options of necklaces for boys.
To make it personalised, the gifts can have the names of the child written by ordering specially. This is something that is getting trendy in recent years and people want to make the children feel special with the gifts when they grow older. On looking through these gifts in later years, it gives a cherished feeling among the children, who can then relate with a greater closeness with those who have gifted them with personalised christening gifts.
