Homemade personalized gifts for children can be unique and make a child feel special. Children will be delighted to receive presents that are personalized to their tastes, and in some cases, have their names on them. Here are just a few options for personalized children’s gifts you can make yourself that your children are sure to love.
The first idea for homemade personalized children’s gift ideas involves knitting. If you are an avid knitter than you can knit your child a hat, scarf, sweater, blanket, or purse. Personalize the knitted item by using your child’s favorite color(s). If you’d like you could knit your child’s name into the item as well. You could also choose to knit in a design featuring their favorite animal. If your child loves polka dots you can create a polka dot design. There are many options you can choose from.
If you enjoy cross stitching you can create a personalized gift for your child using different details and designs. You could make a cross stitched design of princesses with your daughter’s name included on the canvas and frame it. For a boy you could cross stitch cars and trucks on a roadway. You could go off of your own pattern or you could buy a patterned cross stitch kit. There are different cross stitch kits featuring Disney princesses for your little girl or you could buy transportation cross stitch patterns by visiting a site such as 123stitch.com. You could make a framed cross stitch designed with baby related items or themes along with the baby’s name, birth date, and vital stats for a welcome home baby gift as well.
Many craft stores sell wooden items ready to paint. You can find items such as shelving and stepstools that can be turned into personalized gifts for your child. You can paint a stepstool in your child’s favorite color and stencil their name on the top. You could also stencil designs on the step stool that feature your child’s favorite animals or characters. Little boys and girls would also love a hand painted and personalized rocking chair.
If you are handy with the sewing machine you could create clothing for a girl and her doll that matches. Your little girl will be delighted to be wearing the same outfit that her doll has. You could also sew a blanket for your boy or girl using fabric made from their favorite color(s) and other favorite things like dinosaurs or kitty cats. There are many different types of fabric available on the market today. You can visit warmbiscuit.com for specialty children’s fabrics that may be hard to find at your local fabric store.
By making your child one of these homemade personalized gift ideas you can give them a gift that is full of your love. These gifts are sure to be treasured by your child for a lifetime.
