UNIQUE GIFTS FOR NEW PARENTS DURING A JOYOUS TIME
Welcoming a new addition to the family is exciting and it’s also a time that calls for brainstorming thoughtful gifts for the new parents. While the new mom and dad are likely purchasing and receiving gifts like onesies, toys, blankets, diapers, and other items intended for the child, don’t forget that this is a special time to celebrate mommy and daddy too. Take a moment to appreciate the new (or expecting parents) and gift them something truly memorable, like a framed piece of custom artwork to adorn their bedroom, living room, or nursery wall.
MEANINGFUL ARTWORK TO CELEBRATE A GROWING FAMILY
In anticipation of a new bundle of joy, parents usually get to work rearranging the house to make room for a crib, changing station, rocking chair, and more. This interior design transformation is the perfect time to consider gifting a unique piece of artwork mom and dad will be happy to add to the walls! These celebratory pieces include:
- Nursery rhyme and baby animal prints: Some colorful and beautiful prints featuring phrases like “you are my sunshine” and “once upon a time” are more for the parents than for the infant. They are aesthetically pleasing and can kick off the start to a nursery rhyme or song before bedtime. Baby animal prints are the perfect gift for an expecting mom, as these ink drawings will fill her heart with joy as she looks at a baby elephant, baby sheep, and baby kitten on the new baby’s wall. Select from a wide variety of baby animal prints and purchase one or a set of prints that match the nursery’s decor.
- Custom silhouettes: One of the best gifts for new parents is a silhouette of their new addition. Surprise them on the child’s first or second birthday with a beautiful side-profile they can cherish on any wall in the house. Simply upload a photo of the child’s side-profile and Minted will create a custom print in foil-press, letter-press, or standard printing in a variety of vibrant colors and custom framing to choose from. You can even add some text highlighting the child’s name and age.
- Custom foot and handprints: Through Minted’s easy-to-use website, upload a photo of a baby’s hands and feet to create custom letterpress art. You select the colors and frame styling, as well as review a design proof before the meaningful and loving gift for new parents is delivered to their doorstep.
- Framed photo arrangements: Minted’s large collection of photo art makes for the perfect Christmas gift idea for new parents. Upload images of memorable moments from the baby’s first year and highlights from parenthood and arrange them using countless photo art design options. Select from stylish framed photo arrangements that match the decor of the baby’s room, hallway, bedroom, or living room. Create picture collages that spell out the word “DAD” and “MOM,” as well as collages in the shape of a moon or heart. Or, one of the most popular gifts for new parents is a 12-month gallery showing photos of the child’s first year. Mom and dad will love hanging this artwork and reflecting on their first year of parenthood and the journey it has been.
THE BENEFITS OF CREATING CUSTOM GIFTS
Gifts for new moms should ideally match the decor of their home, and Minted allows you to do just that. Our art selections can be ordered in sizes ranging from 8” x 8” to 54 x 40”. This control of sizing ensures your art piece fits perfectly on the wall they wish to fill. Equally as important is the option to select the color theme of the artwork, so it complements the nursery. Have the parents chosen a yellow theme? No problem, filter a favorite design found on Minted to be printed in a favorite shade of yellow. Complete the look with your choice of frame. Choose from over a dozen options that can reinforce a more modern, rustic, or minimalist theme. Or, you can opt to print on canvas for an artsy, modern vibe.
