Custom embroidered baby name artSome of my most favorite baby gifts to give and receive are personalized, but they can often be a little tough on the budget. That’s why I’m so thrilled that one of our favorite Etsy artisans has started making personalized baby name gifts that are easy on the eyes and your wallet. 

Last year, we were all instantly smitten with the affordable embroidered initial necklaces from Merriweather Council–so much so that Liz featured them on the TODAY Show. So I’m not surprised that her new custom baby name wall art caught my eye.

I just love the combination of whimsical fabric and her lovely hand embroidery, which together make one of the sweetest baby gifts I’ve seen, all for just $40. 

I’m also tempted by Danielle’s ready-made pieces, like the “Dream” hoop, which would befit any baby nursery. And the “Let’s Go” hoop is perfect for a retro-inspired kids room or playroom. Better? They’re just $28.

If you’re leaning towards the personalized option, keep in mind that because baby names vary in length, each piece will be completely unique. And it’s important so to note how many letters the artist recommends for the different fabrics. In other words, if you’ve got an Elizabeth or a Harrison to buy for, drop her a line first.

Trust me, the “oohs and ahs” you’ll get will totally be worth it. -Kristen
