Welcome to the world little one
It's one of the most magical things in life and something that is highly regarded as being most people's biggest achievement, that's why we love creating beautiful, personalised baby gifts here at Create Gift Love. Decorating the baby's nursery is always top of the list of things to do and our wooden Honeycomb Wall Art is the ideal accessory. It comes in 3 different colours: Pink, Blue and Grey to suit all new arrivals.
The Family Tree Keepsake Box is a wonderful way to store memories for the new arrival once they grow up and can reminisce. Let's not forget doting mum and dad who can cherish their new bundle of joy with a Day you became my...keyring and carry it around with them anywhere they go.
Our stunning wooden gifts provide a modern alternative to a new baby gift, however, the traditional Silver Spoon was always a present of choice for middle class families dating back to the 1800s. What many people don’t realise is that the use of a silver baby spoon was as much about the child’s health as it was about the size of the family’s wealth. It only takes a minute or two of sterilising for nearly all of the bacteria on a sterling silver spoon to disappear, therefore if a child was fed from a silver spoon they were generally in better health. We never knew this, what an amazing fact!
Whilst we are being all traditional, we thought it would be interesting to share some new baby traditions from around the world. In China newborn babies can expect to receive a red envelope filled with money from the family, often with the words ‘luck’ or ‘fortune’ written on them to bring prosperity and happiness for the future.
In Kyrgyzstan, a dried wolf’s paw is placed under a baby’s pillow to ward off evil spirits. This novel token is part of a ceremony where women offer blessings and good luck spells over the baby’s cradle, in a bid to make it go to sleep. In India, where body decoration is tradition, it’s typical for baby girls to be given silver anklets.
Although the term 'baby shower' is relatively new, the concept of celebrating an expectant mother's new arrival dates back to ancient Greece when rituals were held in honour of a woman entering into motherhood. However, the modern day baby shower as we know it began after WW2 during the baby boom period when gifts were given to the mother-to-be to lessen the financial burden of a new child. Nowadays, it's a great way for friends and family to get together to celebrate a new arrival with cake, presents and games.
If you're going to a baby shower any time soon then we have a fun, simple game that is very apt for welcoming a new bundle of joy to the world! Get 5-6 different food combinations and food process them into a smooth paste. Pop them into dishes and get each person to taste test and write down what they think is in each one! Baby food never did look appetising!
