But probably the greatest of these gift boxes would be the Family History Gift box which allows you to track down the history of your surname and your family.
In the same vein of gifts you can also find personalized books. You could for instance choose a children’s book for a baby personalized with their name.

This fun and creative gift will be most appreciated and will make the birthday girl feel just like the gift , unique and special.

Getting a gift for a little girl can sometimes be frustrating for two main reasons. If you are not the parent of the baby and you don’t have babies of your own you might not know what is appropriate for the age and what she will enjoy. Second getting an age appropriate gift for a baby means that they will use it only for a few months after which they will be forgotten or just left behind.
But it doesn’t have to be this way; there are plenty of options at your disposal that combine the joy of a new object and the keepsake quality of a customized gift. With a personalized birthday gift for little girls you can rest assured that it will accompany them well into their adulthood.
Little children have a lot of toys and many parents will ask not to bring toys for their birthday, but a great present on this subject is a personalized toy chest. Toy chests are whimsical and practical furniture items that can be used long after the girl has abandoned all her toys. Colorfully painted or in classical wood and personalized with the little girl’s name a toy chest will be a treasured gift for years to come.
As children get older their toys and clothes are given away and just the few meaningful ones are kept and almost any adult nowadays still has his baby blanket. You could make a baby blanket for the baby yourself, knitting it or quilt it. Just make sure it is made of soft materials. Or you could get a beautiful new one and get it monogrammed. For an older girl you could get a personalized sleeping bag that will be her trusty sleep over companion throughout her childhood and teen years.
A great educational toy that will also be thoughtful and heartwarming is a personalized book. Help the little girl learn the difference between letters and learn to identify them with a children’ s book in which her name is spelled out with rhymes for each letter.
When it comes to clothing you could personalized any item you want from rain coats to T-shirts. The most popular choices however are to customize a onesie by hand, monogrammed baby shoes, personalized bibs, sweat suits and cute costume pajamas like a bear pajama. A hilarious gift that will be kept by the birthday girl for years to come is a personalized funny T-shirt.
Jewelry is not something a little girl will enjoy on the spot but as soon as she grows older it will become a treasured reminder of her childhood. You could for instance get her necklace with a silver pendant engraved with the print of her baby feet. You could get her an infancy themed charm bracelet, with charms such as bibs, sippy cups and diapers. A classic personalized birthday gift for a little girl is a silver rattle engraved with the girls name or initials.11
