7 Heirloom Gifts For Baby
When it comes to shopping for the perfect gift for a baby shower or new arrival, you simply can’t go wrong with these seven heirloom gifts. Intended to be passed down from generation to generation, they’re practical, sentimental and something everyone will love.
We love heirloom baby gifts for a number of reasons. Made with high quality materials that are designed to last multiple lifetimes, they are ultimately works of art that get to be part of your baby’s daily life, cherished, and then shared between family members and friends.
They hold memories and tell stories. There’s something incredibly special about seeing a baby or child wear the same clothing as their mother and grandmother. Or a little boy sleep in the same moses basket that his father did. It’s a subtle reminder of the passage of time and just how precious the first few years are.
With parents constantly being bombarded with clothing and furniture that can only be used for a short period of time and ultimately ends up in a landfill, it’s refreshing to receive something you know that you’ll have forever.
For example, bassinets tend to only be used for the first six months. The team at Aristot decided to change that by making a bassinet that can be converted into a stylish piece of furniture when not being used by baby. Once that baby is all grown up, it can be easily turned back into a bassinet ready for their baby.
