Keepsake Birthday Gifts Your Child Will Love

Meaningful presents that will be treasured for a lifetime.

$78, Tree by Kerrilee

A perfect first birthday gift, this Music Box has room for up to three lines of personalization. Add your child’s name, birthdate, or a meaningful phrase to the wooden sides. A twist to the winding key prompts the lullaby “Hush, Little Baby” to play.

Kids will be delighted by this Keepsake Treasure Chest from Mike’s Fine Designs, which can house their favorite goodies or be used for imaginative play. As they grow older, your child’s prized possessions can be safely stored inside, making the chest a meaningful time capsule.

$40 and up, Vana Chupp Studio

Upload a photo of your little one, choose a frame color, and receive a beautiful Modern Silhouette Portrait. Add your own text to be written on the portrait or upload your child’s handwriting for an even more personal touch.

$59, Mark & Graham

Teach the value of a hard-earned dollar by gifting this Silver Piggy Bank, which makes for a sweet nursery accent. Add a monogram or go without one so your kid can pass it down to their own child one day.

$80, Tiny Tags

Treat your teen to a Birthstone Necklace to mark a milestone birthday. The necklace is available in sterling silver, 14-karat yellow gold, and gold-plated finishes. The brand also makes nameplate necklaces and a variety of customizable charms.
