Silver-plated baby gifts are keepsake items that parents and children can cherish for a lifetime. There are silver-plated gifts you can give before the baby is born and gifts consisting of plated items the baby has outgrown. The silver-plated item tends to include engraving with the baby's name and/or birth date, as well as decorative details.
A pair of tiny shoes a baby has outgrown provides a popular sentimental object to have silver plated as a gift. The shoes need to have any laces tied into bows and any straps buckled. Though "silver-coloured faux plate" DIY kits are available at most craft stores, there are also businesses that can cover the shoes and provide real silver plate. Engraving on the bottom of the shoes displays the baby's name and birth date.
Let new parents know that their baby deserves only the best in life with a silver-plated spoon gift. The tiny baby spoon consists of a smooth spoon bowl with an ornate handle. If the baby's name and due date are unknown, have the parents' names engraved on the spoon, for example, "Baby Jane and John Doe."
Offer a silver-plated music box for a baby gift that can become a family heirloom. The soothing music played by the box helps both baby and parents relax for nap or bedtime. Baby music boxes come in standard designs such as an oval, as well as specialised designs such as a three-dimensional kitten. Engraving the names of the immediate family, including the new baby, on the inner lid of the music box adds a personal touch.
A lovely plated picture frame is a baby gift that is sure to be appreciated. Any silver-plated frame that parents can use to display baby pictures is an appropriate present. A frame with a teddy-bear-and-building-block pattern provides a gender-neutral style. A frame with a rose and ribbon pattern may be good for little girls, and one with a fire-engine pattern is good for boys.
Tooth-fairy jars are decorative small jars that parents can use to store children's baby teeth. The silver-plated jar has a plated twist-on top for secure and safe storage. A silver-plated tooth-fairy figurine decorates the top of the jar's lid for a touch of whimsy.
A small, light silver-plated toy rattle is a classic choice for a sophisticated baby gift. The rattle must be light enough for an older baby to hold and actually work as a rattle. Teddy-bear engraving covers the round top of the rattle for a cheerful style. The thick metal handle is small enough for baby hands, but sturdy enough to last for decades. If the baby's name and birth date are known, they can be engraved on the op of the rattle.
