7 Personalized Birthday Gift Ideas We Love

From denim jackets that figuratively and literally have your name on them to bibs that will be the finishing touch to any tot’s outfit, these five personalized birthday gifts have that bit of extra we all want and need.


As you and your friends start to have kids, you’re going to be invited to a lot of birthday parties. (Arguably one of the best parts of having kids!) It can become a bit repetitive and boring to give generic gifts, which is why we are slightly obsessed with customizable items. It adds a personal touch that makes the gift more meaningful and memorable.

Lucky for us, finding the perfect birthday gift just got easier thanks to Patchy Tiger, Peeps Paper Products, Cece Dupraz, Sue Gragg, Parker Thatch, Modern Blocks and the in house design team at The Tot. These brands have created timeless pieces that can be personalized and customized for that special someone in your life. (Or yourself! We don’t judge.)


THE TOT Personalized Bibs


At The Tot, we’re passionate about creating items that are safe to use, sustainable to produce and stylish all year round. We also like things that are useful. For our first collection designed in-house, we’ve created a line of personalized organic cotton bibs that can be customized to capture any personality. Perfect for catching drools and dribbles, they will save your little one’s outfits, while bringing all the, “Awwwws!”


Peeps Paper Products X Cece Dupraz Personalized Animal Pillow


Another great gift for newborns and infants is the personalized animal pillow from Peeps Paper Products x Cece Dupraz. Made in the US, you can have any name embroidered on it and choose from six different animals. It will be a fabulous addition to any nursery or playroom and something that you’ll cherish forever. (It’s also a great Baby Shower gift idea!)
