Adoption is a joyful, challenging, bonding experience that unites families from across a multitude of cultures. Families and individuals touched by the happiness and joy of adoptions benefit from gifts that reflect their unique journey and love.

Customised Picture Frames

Using a customised picture frame to mark the memory of an adoption day is an excellent way to create a daily reminder for children of the love shared between adoptive families. You can create your own by using adhesive scrapbooking letters or paint to design the frame with items such as the child's name, adoption date, or popular adoptive gift slogans such as "gotcha." Customised picture frames are visual reminders that can be placed in children's rooms to promote a feeling of belonging and foster acceptance into the new family.

Adoption Story Books

Adoption story books are an exceptional adoption gifts for smaller children. Reading the books as a family fosters bonding as a family unit and also provides examples of adoption stories and challenges faced by families. Adoption story books instil a sense of security for adoptive children who are able to observe characters experiencing the emotions and challenges of adoptive family life. Cultural adoption story books promote various cultures and reflect the combination of cultures experienced in many adoptive families.

Engraved Jewelry

Engraved jewellery such as pendants are a special way to mark the date of adoption or to emphasise love and affection between family members. Engraved jewellery also marks the beginning of the child's new adopted life and can instil a sense of membership in the new family. Types of jewellery that can be engraved for an adoption gift include: bracelets, rings, watches and necklaces. Engraved jewellery is also a visual representation of the new family life and changes that have occurred in the child's life. Adoptive parents can also allow children to pick out their choice of engraved jewellery to mark the occasion and allow the child to be happy with wearing the gift.

Personalised Welcome Home Scrapbook

Using a scrapbook paper, markers and photos, parents can create a personalised welcome home scrapbook for children to promote bonding as well as allow the child to read about their new family. Topics that may be included are: family tree information such as parents, siblings, grandparents as well as aunts and uncles; family traditions; family activities such as movies, bowling or trips to the park; and daily favourites such as family favourite dinners, favourite movies and favourite family games.
