Baby gifts made from silver are one of the most traditional gifts you can give a newborn and a new set of parents. There are a wide variety of whimsical and useful gifts made from solid silver. Select a gift that can be displayed first in a nursery and later can be used by the child as he grows up and learns to appreciate the symbolism and utility of the gift.
Silver Baby Bank
Select a solid sterling silver baby bank that can be engraved with the child's name. Baby banks come in a wide variety of models to fit a boy's or a girl's nursery. Trains, planes, tractors and little piglets. Fill the bank with a few coins to get the child started. The bank symbolises prosperity, planning and a bright future for the baby.
Select a silver pendant that is made of solid sterling. You can buy pendants in a wide variety of shapes related to babies. There are hearts, piglets, ducks, bears, bootees, crosses and flowers, to name just a few. Select a pendant that fits the personality of the mother. Buy two pendants, which the mother can wear on a chain or a bracelet. You can have the backs of the pendants engraved with "Mother" and "Daughter" or the real names of the mother and baby. When the child grows up, the mother can pass along the second pendant to the child. Whichever symbol you choose, make sure you communicate the meaning behind it. For example, if you select a flower, you might wish the mother a bright future of watching her child grow and bloom. If you select a duck, you might wish the mother a blessed time of caring for her child and keeping him in line like a duck in a row. Be creative with your message.
Silver Baby Bracelet
Purchase a sterling silver baby braclet and have the baby's name or nickname engraved onto the front of the bracelet. This is tradtional yet creative gift that can be worn by both male and female babies. When the child gets older, it can either stay in a keepsake box--most likely the choice of boys--or be worn as a fashion accessory until it no longer fits--most likely the choice of girls.
Silver Brush Set
A traditional sterling silver baby gift is a brush and comb set, which can be engraved with the baby's name. The set can be displayed on a nursery dresser until it is needed. As the child grows, the set can be put in a curio or display box as a memento. Make sure the brush is made of soft bristles, as a baby's head is sensitive.
