Milestone Baby and Child Keepsake Gift Ideas
A babyprint can be created to mark one of many milestones in your child’s life.
Baby’s 1st Birthday
Marking your child’s first birthday is a great opportunity to create a Babyprint.
Some of our clients have been so impressed with their newborn print that they have come back to us exactly a year later so they have a keepsake that shows just how much their child has grown!
Why not ask people to get some gift vouchers as your child’s first birthday gift ?
Baby’s first shoes
When your babe-in-arms starts to toddle – you will distinctly remember your baby’s first shoes. We can frame their shoes side by side next to their cute feet!
First day at Nursery/School
Most parents take a picture of their child’s first day at school or nursery – uniform unblemished and bag in hand! Why not frame that extra-special photo next to a imprint of your child’s hands to mark the occasion?
You can create a special statue of your child’s hands in the prayer position to mark their first Holy Communion
The only limit to a Babyprint is our imagination so if you have another occasion you want to honour or an idea you want us to explore – just contact us and we’d love to help!

Babyprints services informationA 3D mould takes approximately 2 minutes for each hand and foot and is entirely safe, your baby/child will have their hands or feet dipped into a warm mixture which then becomes firm (but flexible), after a minute or two the hand/foot can easily slide out – which incidentally comes out clean.
The mixture is a natural product, made from seaweed, and is non-toxic and biodegradable.
Babyprints have taken solid 3D casts of babies from just days old and there is no age limit, grandparents are very keen to have their hands casts with their precious grandchild.
For impressions, we use a very soft terracotta clay, It is pain free and takes literally seconds to do. We recommend casting from 3-4 weeks old for impressions.
Babyprints usually allocate half an hour for appointments, but sometimes for multiple orders we need a longer appointment.
Once we’ve taken the cast or impression, the completed order is ready in approximately 3-5 weeks.
If casts are required urgently, it may be possible to arrange for them to ‘fast tracked’ but additional charges may apply.
It's all in the finishingThe magic is in the finishing, Babyprints are expertly trained and finish all products to the highest standards.
From the mould and intricate detail of each hand and foot cast to the top quality styling and frame choices, When looked after, your final unique keepsake will stand the test of time.
Each timeless unique keepsake will always bring back those precious memories - what will your little ones hands and feet go on to acheive!
