Create a handmade Scrapbook to capture baby's first year!


Whether the mom-to-be is a scrapbooker or not, she's probably not going to have a lot of extra time on her hands for crafting! Help her out by creating a scrapbook or photo album for her that she'll only need to add photos and journaling to! You can pick up a scrapbooking kit to keep it easy or go all out and match your own coordinated finds. Incorporate fun layouts to capture baby's "firsts" and growth. You can find all sorts of scrapbooking tips and tutorials on our Scrapbooking Workshop page here! Remember to include an acid-free pen for the mom to journal about her thoughts, baby's milestones, and more!
Premium Clay Baby Footprint & Handprint Picture Frame Kit 

This beautiful frame has room to show off baby's hand and foot print, along with room for a couple of pictures. The kit comes with everything Mom (or dad!) will need for this project, including the child-safe, non-toxic clay.  The same company also sells a similar, non-toxic ink version!
Letters to My Baby (journal)

​This is such a sweet idea, and a great gift to give the mommy-to-be! It may not be a keepsake YET, but it WILL BE!

With plenty of room for notes, poems, songs, and more, this journal is likely to become one of baby's most prized possessions! If you budget allows, create a whole journaling gift basket! Include pens, stickers, or anything else you think the journaling mum may enjoy! You can pick up a copy of this sweet journal on Amazon here.
