Custom Cameo Wooden Baby Rattle

Head Start

When a special, new baby comes into the world, it can take some thought to come up with just the right gift. You want it to be something meaningful, expressing your heartfelt blessings. It's a gift for the baby, but needs to be something the parents will also appreciate. And you hope to give something that won't be outgrown or forgotten in too short a time.

This remarkable, custom made rattle fulfills all of those wishes and more. The ridges carved at each end of the heirloom-quality piece aren't merely decorative flourishes--they are custom made using the unique contours of each parent's face. The ends are hand-carved, and the baby's name can be etched along the center handle.

When you give this rattle, you will present the parents to be with a block of beautifully grained wood from which the rattle will be milled, with its shakable, rattling bits already mysteriously sealed inside. The block is laser engraved with illustrations of how the rattle will look, and instructions for how the parents can send their pictures to the workshop. It comes with a postage-paid envelope for the parents to mail in the wooden block, and 4-6 weeks later they will receive the finished, one-of-a-kind rattle. This precious gift will be treasured by the new parents, their child, their child's children, and beyond. Hand-carved by artists in New York.
