What is a personalized keepsake baby pillow anyway? Depending on how you look at it, it can be a few different things, and all of them would make a great gift. You can personalize a baby pillow with the baby's name, date of birth, height and weight. This makes a one of a kind commemorative kind of pillow. You can add the information to the pillow in a number of ways. Depending on what you like to do you could embroider, stencil, or even use applique. Your creativity is the only limit in this project.
You can also include in the gift a keepsake item such as a hand print or footprint kit. You could create a kit if you wanted to, with small tins ~ of increasing size, say 5. These tins would be for the child's hand print every year for the first five years. If you make this, include the material for the child to put their hands in as well as the tins. You can also find pre made kits like this.
Other keepsakes you can include in your gift are a tin to keep a lock of hair from the first hair cut, or the first tooth given to the tooth fairy.
