Heirloom Baby Gift Ideas from an Austin Newborn Photographer

Baby holds a toddler in her hand.

The anticipation and arrival of a baby can bring the most expectant and beautiful joy. A baby’s first year is incredibly tender, every few months a new milestone is met and time is fleeting. I find that gifts that help savor this time in a baby’s life are some of the most treasured and memorable; these gifts are heirloom baby gifts. 

Here is a list of my top Heirloom baby gift ideas. 

  1. The Milestone Collection Gift Certificate 

Help the parents-to-be treasure their little one’s milestones throughout his or her first year with The Milestone Collection. From Maternity, to newborn days, to crawling, to sitting up, to baby’s first birthday, this collection perfectly captures it all.

  1. A Silver Engraved Frame

A silver frame with engraving that details baby’s birthday is a beautiful keepsake and addition to the nursery. 

  1. A Bespoke Baby Blanket

A baby blanket that is handmade or made with custom embroidery not only holds baby, but deep significance in the years to come. 

  1. A Silver Rattle 

When capturing milestone pictures one of my top objects for baby to hold is a silver rattle for its timelessness. 

  1. A Smocked Outfit

A smocked dress with bonnet for a baby girl or a smocked romper with peter pan collar for a baby boy always photograph beautifully and add a classic element to every portrait
