Having personalized gifts made for special occasions can be such a treat. There's nothing quite like watching loved ones' faces light up as they unwrap lovely things that were specifically made for them to celebrate their uniqueness! From jewelry and decor to household goods and toys, we've rounded up our favourite customizable gift options that are perfect no matter whether you're buying for the Christmas holidays, Mother's or Father's Day, or a special birthday!
We've fallen in love with fingerprint pendant necklaces & footprint key chains we just had made as gifts by Smallprint Vancouver North. They offer an extensive range of high quality jewelry & accessories that capture your loved ones’ prints for all time. Best of all - prints can be captured in person or online!
Your Name Books
Our kids can't get enough of their Lost My Name personalized books, and we're excited to see that Wonderbly has expanded it's line-up to include six new customizable books with up to 9 family member names included, as well as a personalized Silly Snap card game and alphabet posters!
Artwork Into Dresses & Shirts
from Picture This Clothing
Wondering what to do with your kids' growing pile of artwork? Instead of trying to save everything, we love the idea of picking a few favourite pieces and having them turned into beautiful keepsakes. That's why we're big fans of Picture This Clothing that allows you to have artwork turned into dresses and shirts with the click of a button!
Artwork Into Softies
from Child's Own Studio
Another cool option for artwork keepsakes is having them turned into custom softies by Child's Own Studio in Vancouver! After your child draws or paints a unique character, you send in the drawing and their team of artisans will explore fabrics, colours and shapes to bring your picture to life. We can't wait to try this one for our kids!
Quick & Easy Photo Books
Chatbooks has really changed the way that busy parents can create & order photo books online. It's quick, easy (think ordering straight from your phone) and super affordable - we just wish this service had existed when our kids were babies! We've definitely been taking advantage of it for keepsake books for nieces & nephews.
Baby Memory Quilts & Stuffies
from Kim's Threads
Thank goodness we came across Kim's Threads in North Vancouver right before we passed along all of our kids' baby clothes! She guided us in picking our favourite pieces and turned them into one-of-a-kind handmade quilts. Our kids still sleep with them at night, and if they every grow out of them we'll snag them for ourselves!
