The quest for the perfect baby gift is not an easy one. Finding a gift that is a combination of being both usable and special can be challenging to say the least.
So many gift items for babies get tossed aside or cast to the far corners of a closet as baby grows. Others may be appreciated later in the baby's life, but only gather dust until the baby is old enough to appreciate them.
Everyone wants a present for a new baby that can be used now, but also remains special and useful once the baby is grown. Baby necklaces are one such gift that is perfect for when the baby is little and also a special keepsake for many years to come.
Whether given as a gift from parent to child, grandparent to grandchild, or just as a baby shower gift for a special friend, few gifts are as perfect as baby necklaces.
A Special Gift for Today: Parents can adorn their precious babies with baby necklaces from the time they are tiny newborns (safety note: never leave a baby unattended while wearing baby necklaces) well through when they are wobbly toddlers.
Perfect for a special occasion, a photo shoot, or just playing dress up with that precious little baby, baby necklaces are certain to be used time and time again.
Though some keepsake gifts must be kept on high shelves far away from baby, baby necklaces are an extraordinary gift that can be used on the baby immediately.
A Special Keepsake Gift Forever: In addition to use for dressing up precious little ones, baby necklaces can be used for years and years and will forever remain a dear keepsake treasure.
Depending on the length chosen, little girls and young ladies can continue to wear their baby necklaces for important events or even as an everyday accessory.
If the chain becomes too short as children grow into adults, it is simple and affordable to have a jeweler add a bit of length to baby necklaces by adding more chain or, when applicable, additional pearls.
Another option is to have baby necklaces converted to bracelets. Many women even keep baby necklaces given to them as infants to pass on to their own daughters.
Whatever the choice of what to do with a baby necklace, it is certain to become an heirloom.
As an added bonus to this thoughtful gift that is ideal for both today and tomorrow, it is a uniquely personal gift.
If the mother of the baby is still expecting, choices can be made based around the parents' personalities and preferences. If the baby is already here, choices can be made as to what best suits the baby.
Whatever the final decision is on which style of baby necklace is right, the gift of a baby necklace is one that is sure to be used from the moment it is opened and to later stand the test of time.
