If you're struggling to find the perfect gift for a child then why not go for something that is a little more personal?

It's easy to buy babies or toddlers the must-have toys, but they can be quickly put to the bottom of the toy box, (or somewhere completely random where it gets rediscovered a year down the line). But a personalised gift is a lot more loved, not just by the little ones, but by mum and dad too. 

Whether it's a personalised toy or keepsake, little ones will love their name being engraved on to their special gift. So take a look at our selection of personalised products that make beautiful gifts for babies and toddlers.

This gorgeous little set is made from super soft fabric, meaning it's gentle against newborns' skin. The comforter can be personalised with baby's name and date of birth too, which makes it a lovely present to give to new parents. It'll make a lovely little keepsake one day too! 

While it might not be the most exciting gift for children, they'll know which cutlery is for them when it comes to mealtimes. Available in colours pink or blue, the set comes with little engraved dinosaurs on the handle, as well as their name. 

Ride-on toys are great for encouraging those first steps! This fire engine ride-on is one-of-a-kind and helps bring out a tot's heroic side as they can ride around on their personalised fire engine. The detail is lovely, as it even has a tinkling bell and removable ladders.

We all know the importance of nursery rhymes to learning and development, so personalising the old favourites with your child's name will make them all the more memorable.
