Wales, on the western coast of the British Isles, has a rich history and culture in which Welsh people take great pride. Wales' heritage has shaped much of modern Welsh life, and many Welsh people make every effort to ensure that these traditions will pass on to succeeding generations. If you plan to buy a baby gift for a Welsh child, you may wish to find a present that honours the baby's nationality.

Buy the baby a children's book in Cymraeg, the traditional Welsh language. Cymraeg has staged a comeback in recent years, as Welsh traditionalists attempt to revive their native language by producing Cymraeg literature. A number of Cymraeg books for children encourage the development and use of Cymraeg while providing enjoyable literature for youngsters. Tomos Morgan's Cyfres Alun Yr Arth series, Sian Lewis's Twm books and others offer a pleasant way for a Welsh child to become acquainted with the Welsh language.
Sheep herding plays an important role in the economy of rural areas of Wales. Woolen mills in Wales spin and weave a large variety of woollen products that you may wish to purchase for a baby gift. The Teifi Valley Rock Mill produces fine rugs and blankets for a baby's room, Ty Hen Angoras in Ceredigion makes hand-knitted garments and Curlew Weavers of Newcastle Emlyn in Ceredigion creates fabrics for baby clothes, coats and slippers.
Bring a selection of Welsh music to provide soothing tunes for the baby's nursery. Bring a disc of Welsh folk songs, children's songs, folk dances of Wales or Welsh classical music for the baby (and for the parents for sleepless nights). Online music shops of Welsh music provide a wide selection from which to choose the baby's gift.
Purchase a flag of a Welsh sports team to hang in the baby's room if the parents plan to raise the baby as a supporter of a Welsh sports team. Many people in Wales enjoy watching local soccer, rugby, cricket, darts, bowls and other Welsh sporting events, cheering on the local or national team. If the baby's parents demonstrate a strong passion for a particular team, bring the baby into the family cheering squad with a baby hat, sweatshirt, T-shirt or other object that displays the team's logo.
