Last week I brought you a heap of ideas for Edible Gifts to make for Boys and Men. I hope you’re feeling inspired. Next up…babies! Like a lot of people, I love making gifts for new babies. They’re so cute and cuddly that you can’t help yourself…right??The needs of a baby boy aren’t any different to those of a baby girl when you think about it, so these ideas can be easily girl-ified with the right colour choices and a few changes.Here are 20 of my favourite gifts for baby boys. Want more inspiration? Take a look at my Gifts for Baby Boys Pinterest Board.
|Needle Felted Rattle Ball
I recently had a go at felting to make a nose for a softie fox and it was a lot of fun. The colour variations with this idea are endless!
|Paper Plane Mobile
I love this simple mobile. The paper planes are a cheeky and fun idea that’s a bit out of the ordinary.
I have a bit of a thing for rabbits, so love this cute little fella! Softies are a wonderful gift. I’ve made many different softies and really enjoy the process of making them.
Embellishing a bought onesie is a fun and quick way to make something handmade without actually making the onesie itself.
|Top Knot Baby Hat
These little hats are so sweet and the knot on top means you can loosen it to make the hat bigger as your baby grows.
This free pattern of mine is the most popular post on my blog. It’s a nice modern take on the classic baby bootie. I’ve lost count of how many pairs of these I have made and I love putting them onto Ted’s feet.
|Mini Artwork for Nursery
Making artwork for a baby’s nursery is a fun and different idea. You can’t go wrong with cars for boys, but birth stats or animals or alphabets would all work.
|Snuggler Swaddle Wrap
Both my boys loved to sleep swaddled up. I was never any good at wrapping babies up in blankets…they’d break free a minute later, so this shaped snuggler is awesome!
Quilts make lovely gifts that can be kept and treasured forever. I still haven’t worked up the courage to try a patchwork quilt, but this chenille quilt is a good way to ease into quilting.
|Snap Cargo Pants
I love the look of these pants and having the option to unsnap them for nappy changes is brilliant!
|Baby Boy Sandals
These are just too cute! You can find links to more shoe patterns in my Pinterest Board.
|Bandana Dribble Bib
Babies dribble a lot! Even Roman, a baby who never spewed, loved to dribble. These bandana bibs are a great way to catch that dribble in style!
Babies love to play with the tags on toys more than the toys themselves, so I love this dinosaur with tags for spikes along his back.
|Bow Tie Onesies
This is another adorable onesie makeover! Hilary has actually made up 2 sets of these in the tutorial and boxed them up like a Tuxedo to gift to twins.
The options for personalising a book like this are endless. I’m already in a fabric induced coma thinking of all the fabric ranges you could show off in one of these!
These wooden teethers are just too cool! I can’t decide which one is my favourite. Made up in some Maple or Birch wood and sanded until smooth, they’d be such an unusual hand made gift.
|Nursery Storage Basket
I tried to stick to gifts that are specifically for the baby, but I had to include this gorgeous divided basket. It’s perfect for storing all those baby things in it, or even books or toys.
These days all the experts say that flat soft toys are safe to put in the crib with a baby at night. Roman has a blankie, but it looks horrible these days, I think a well loved teddy would be much nicer to look at.
|Lil Apple Hat
There’s only a limited time that you can put such a terribly cute thing on your baby, so make the most of it! Good enough to eat!
|Crochet Amigurumi Koala
Being Australian, I’m smitten with this cute little Koala. And no, he’s not a bear…just a Koala!
And now it’s your turn! New to link parties? No worries, here’s what you have to do:
– Find a post on your blog that you want to link up. It can be anything you think would make a great hand made gift for a baby boy.
– Link directly to the post, not your blogs home page. The link should look something like this: http://(your blog address/website)/(the post you want to link).html
– Then click below where it says “click here to enter” and follow the steps to link your post and create a title, and select your picture.
– Use the name of your recipe/idea for the title.
– Keep in mind the picture will be small thumbnail so pick a picture that shows it off the best.
– I would love it if you added my button to your page or post, or where ever you store your link ups. You don’t have to use the button to link up, it’s just there if you want it.
– Take a look around at the other link ups and share some commenting love!
