Monogrammed Giraffe Baby Blanket
When it comes to personalized baby gifts, you can’t go wrong with a baby blanket. We love this adorable giraffe-patterned option from Pottery Barn. Add the little one’s name in one of three fonts and four colors. It makes for a great baby shower gift, as well!
Baby Gift Box
You can customize several aspects of this sweet baby gift box from Etsy. Choose from baby boy, girl or gender-neutral themes, then opt for one of several stuffed animal selections. A personalized card completes this darling care package.
Sweet dreams await when this personalized moon and stars nightlight is in the nursery. Available at Uncommon Goods, this unique gift is powered by a USB cord and casts a soft, cozy glow. It’s perfect for nighttime feedings and, as the child gets older, fending off monsters under the bed.
Embroidered Baby Bow
Big bows are all the rage. And this hand-embroidered option from Etsy is extra-special. Pick from several fabrics and thread color options for the perfect fit. Plus, it’s one of the more budget-friendly personalized baby gifts you can buy.
Personalized Nursery Rocker
While baby won’t be able to play on this nursery rocker from Pottery Barn for a few years, it’s still a darling addition to their nursery. We love this classic horse option with a customizable base. Choose from eight fonts and 10 colors to add their name or other short text.
Personalized Busy Board
A great gift for 1-year-olds, little hands will stay occupied for hours thanks to this personalized busy board. Available on Etsy, this simply toy encourages motor skills development, touching and problem-solving. Each puzzle includes your child’s name, as well as a variety of themed shapes. Plus, you can engrave a personalized message on the back!
Add some color to their nursery with this personalized name pillow from Olive & Cocoa. Available in two designs—branches and critters or flowers and butterflies—this pillow is a sweet addition to a rocking chair or recliner.
Monogrammed Christmas Stocking
It’s never too early to think of the holidays. And the mom-to-be will appreciate your forethought when you show up with this monogrammed Christmas stocking from L.L. Bean. We love the retro needlepoint style and bountiful designs to choose from.
Custom Baby Rattle
There’s only one word for this personalized baby gift: precious. Made of cotton and beech wood, these sweet Etsy crocheted rattles come in several animal styles and colors. Add an engraving to one (or both!) sides of the holder, too.
Custom Nursery Rhyme Book
What child wouldn’t want to be the subject of their bedtime stories? This personalized nursery book from Etsy includes songs, poems and lullabies with your little one’s name. Not only will it be a nighttime staple for years, but it’s beautifully illustrated, too.
Monogrammed Hooded Towel
Bath time for older babies just got more fun! This hooded animal towel and washcloth set—available in bunny, lion and lamb styles—can be monogrammed with the child’s name. Pick it up at Pottery Barn.
Nursery Name Sign
Another nursery trend? Large name signs above the crib. We’re fans of this cutout option from Etsy that’s customizable with several widths, two wood types and a dozen middle name fonts.
Embroidered Crewneck Sweatshirt
Chilly days call for comfy sweatshirts. And this tiny option from Etsy is perfect for baby. Hand-embroidered in the thread color of your choice, this name crewneck is a comfy addition to baby’s wardrobe.
This adorable lovey will become their all-time favorite. An oh-so-comfy faux fur backing, cute watercolor whale print and personalized name detail make this Etsy gift a keeper.

This gender-neutral art print from Minted will look great on any nursery wall. We love the playful Dalmatian, six colorways, array of sizes and plentiful framing options. Plus, you can add baby’s name to the balloon.
