These days, a birth announcement is likely met with a gift purchased online. Many families obviously register items for a baby and his or her nursery. In many cases, gift-givers will simply select a gift card and call it a day. Why not give a completely unique gift of a hand-made baby book?
When I was growing up (last century!), there were gorgeous baby books that chronicled important milestones from birth to about age 7. These volumes became family heirlooms and were always unique hardbound books with truly lovely illustrations. Quite simply, I cannot find any contemporary baby books that rival the ones of yester-year. So for several special babies, I have attempted to re-create the vintage baby books with a whole range of ephemera.
The video below shows one such volume. I would be happy to chat with you about your wishes for a custom volume. You can contact me at [email protected]
