An adorable gift idea for an expecting mom is a personalized name plaque to hang on the door of the baby's nursery. Painted ones are nice, but ceramic options from Jaime's Painting Design are a much more durable option. Not only will this custom-made gift celebrate the new baby, but it will give mom a keepsake to hold onto.
You can choose from a variety of style types, depending on your preference. There are some plaques that feature full scenes, like a “Fire Truck” or “Mermaid,” with the baby's name in the center. Others have multiple images that surround the baby's name and generally fit into an overall design theme, like “Princess Fairytale” or “Ocean Friends.” Pick the one you think the mom-to-be will most appreciate or what best matches the nursery decor. Even if you don't know the baby's name yet, you can get a plaque that reads “Baby (Last Name).”
