Summer seems to be the baby-gifting season (for me at least). I have several friends who are having babies, and accordingly, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect present for new moms and little ones. I’ve pulled together some of my favorite finds–all inspired by beautiful birth announcements. From bold to boho, I’ve found gifts to suit every mom’s unique style…
Precious Name Birth Announcement by Oscar and Emma
Classic Style: I chose this traditionally beautiful birth announcement by Oscar and Emma to inspire my picks for a classically styled mom and baby. Timeless and elegant, the mom who sends this announcement values tailoring, clean lines and simplified style. Send her objects that can be keepsakes, like a silver rattle, or gifts that can be passed down for generations, like a collection of children’s stories.
1. Silver Rattle, Uncommon Goods
2. Green Cardigan, Baby Gap
3. Personalized Wall Pennants, Chasing Fireflies
4. Apple Pillow, Oeuf
Fancy Floral Frame by The Lovely Letters
Bohemian Style: I selected this pretty embellished birth announcement by The Lovely Letters as inspiration for a family with a bohemian style. The mom who sends this announcement loves natural detailing, mixing patterns and finding eclectic pieces to complete her curated style. Send her and baby hand-crafted items, like bespoke baby sandals, or gifts to complement a natural lifestyle, like freezable baby food storage containers. Even an infant-sized floral crown is a perfect gift to accessorize baby’s first photo session.
1. Organic Cotton Bluebird Rattle, Brika
2. Pleated Tank Dress, DVF for Baby Gap
3. Malibu Dream Floral Crown, Gardenhead on etsy (infant size upon request)
4. Ani Sandal, Ryan Campbell for Brika
Vintage Label Birth Announcement by Alethea and Ruth
Bold + Graphic Style: I picked this crisp and graphic birth announcement by Alethea and Ruth to inspire my gift selections for a mom with modern style. Edgy and statement-making, the family who sends this announcement likes fresh graphics with a typographic emphasis and high-contrast illustrations. Send her objects in unexpected color palettes, like a grey and black cherry onesie, or style-making accessories, like a pair of pint-sized shades.
1. Birdie Feeding Spoon, My Sweet Muffin
3. Cherry Bodysuit, Bobo Choses
4. Black and White Baby Shoes, Sonatina
