‘Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart’ – Winne the Pooh by A.A. Milne
Buying a gift for a new baby can be difficult. Yes, you could buy all the adorable clothes, socks, mittens and hats in the world but, realistically, are they something the parents will cherish and keep forever? Will they look back at that cute sleepsuit on her 1st birthday or will it be thrown into a pile of the tiny pink things and soon be forgotten about once the baby outgrows it? I’m a bit of hoarder when it comes to baby clothes, toys and photos but even I must admit that most of Penny’s things are safely boxed away and in the attic.
Oh So Cherished has curated a wonderful range of personalised gifts that are that little bit more special. Each item is not only adorable but is sure to make an impression and be remembered for years to come. I was very kindly sent the ‘My Firsts Wooden Keepsake Box’ to celebrate the arrival of my beautiful baby girl, Poppy. It’s a beautiful keepsake that I will cherish and display for years to come. The detail that has gone into creating it is sure to warm even the coldest heart. I chose to have Poppy’s weight, date of birth and full name inscribed at the bottom but you could even have Oh So Cherished add a song lyric or quote. Inside is three internal compartments each with a little white organza bag for you to store your baby’s little lock of hair, tooth and hospital bracelet.
