4 Handmade Newborn Gifts to Give Now

There is something extra special about giving a handmade gift to celebrate the birth of a baby. A handcrafted present takes skill, thoughtfulness and patience to create—that’s why purchasing one is such a wonderful way to welcome a newborn. Luckily, buying a quality handmade gift doesn’t have to be expensive. Here are four fabulous options that you can pick up now for less than $100.

An Heirloom-Quality Spoon Set

Heirloom-quality gifts are always a good choice for celebrating the arrival of a new baby. They stand the test of time and are even often treasured by multiple generations in a family. The Momma and Baby Bird Spoon Set from is one such item. This unique and super cute spork and spoon set features a sweet little baby bird in a raised design on the spork handle and a loving momma bird on the handle of the spoon. Both sturdy pieces are artist designed and hand cast from lead-free pewter, which means that baby will probably be able to pass them down to her own little one someday.

A Hand-Knit Doll

Super soft and cuddly, knit dolls can make great newborn gifts, but you probably won’t find them in your local toy store. Thankfully, you can find an amazing variety of adorable knit dolls—handmade by Peruvian artisans—at These 100% cotton creations are available in bright colors and lots of cute, contemporary styles. Think the new little one will be an animal lover? Pick up a lion, hippo or elephant doll. You can also find flower dolls, boy dolls and some dolls of color too. This company is committed to fair trade practices and sustainability, so you can feel extra good about your purchase.

Personalized Hoop Art

No, this isn’t your grandma’s kind of hoop art. Think modern. Think fresh. Think really, really sweet newborn gift. At the Blue Without You Kids shop, you can pick up a personalized baby’s initial and birthdate hoop art keepsake. These precious little embroidery pieces are handmade by a mom of three and are perfect for decorating a nursery. Because each piece is customized with baby’s first or last name, initial and date of birth, the proud parents will know that you really went out of your way to find an extra special gift.

Heartfelt Wishes

The handcrafted Baby Love Blessings Box gift set from the fair trade site gives you a really special way to relay all of the wonderful blessings you wish for a newborn baby. The set is handmade by artisans in Bangladesh and features a terracotta bowl and votive candleholder imprinted with the words “nurture”, “love” and “protect.”  In the center of the bowl, are two tiny handprints symbolizing the life of the new little one. Small squares of paper are included in the set so that you can add your own personalized touch of handwritten wishes for baby.
