Baby Shower Gift Ideas - Personalised Teddy Bear


Many of us grew up with teddy bears – for some of us, our teddy bears were our first best friend. We played with them, talked to them, and hugged them tight during stormy nights. Why not take the initiative to give that cute bundle of joy their own first best friend? Of course, you’ll want to make your gift as unique as possible, and one way of doing that is with a personalised teddy bear. There are different ways to personalize a teddy bear, and the most common one is having the baby’s name stitched on it. You can also have the teddy dressed up according to the baby’s gender. You can go crazy when designing your personalised teddy bear – for as long as it pleases the baby and the parents, of course.


Buying a Personalised Teddy Bear

Buying a personalised teddy bear is not rocket science, but it does require some research and a little out-of-the-box thinking – after all, you’ll want to make it as unique as possible. Thus, when shopping for a personalised teddy bear, here are some considerations to keep in mind.

First, be sure to shop around early. You can always buy a ready-made teddy bear at the mall and have it personalised, but that may take days to finish. If you order it in an online shop that makes personalised teddy bears from scratch, you may have to wait for weeks before it’s finished. So if you want your gift to make it in time for the baby shower, then be sure to place an order at least two weeks early.

Second, you’ll want to make sure that your personalised teddy bear is safe for the baby.

  • Avoid button eyes and nose – babies love to chew and these may end up in their mouths.
  • Check the seams – seams should be strong enough to keep the stuffing inside the teddy bear and out of the baby’s mouth, again.
  • No wires, please – some teddy bears are manufactured with wires. Stay clear of these. Although they may be blanketed with fur, there is still a chance that they may poke out and injure the baby.
  • Avoid long ribbons – the longer the ribbon the bigger the chance that the baby may get entangled in them.

Third, avoid giving the baby a personalised teddy bear that is as big as the baby. You’ll want something that is small enough for them to hold and carry around.

Lastly, be sure the personalised teddy bear is washable. These furry little fellows can attact dirt and dust which can be harmful to the baby.
