Welcome to BabyFish! We specialise in Personalised Gifts for Kids making your gift a unique, special and much-treasured keepsake for babies and toddlers. BabyFish prides itself on making your gift buying for the little folk as easy and pain-free as possible.
The popularity of personalised gifts for children is on the increase and this is no surprise given our desire to personalise just about anything. From the traditional Baby Christening gifts made even more special by engraving the name and date of birth of the baby to the more quirky gift idea of a personalised piggy banks or personalised wooden chair.
We all like to own things that we can call our own, something that really belongs to us. Right from the very early stages of childhood with our first toys, it is not our instinct to share with other children but to keep everything for ourselves ~ “everything is mine”. Sharing is a behaviour that kids take a long time to learn about and really it should not be expected of them until they are at least 3 years of age. So when they guard their goodies it’s quite natural and ought to be treated as another developmental milestone. Perhaps we adults encourage this phase of not sharing by the giving of personalised gifts for girls or personalised gifts for boys at a very early age.
But it’s not just kids that like things that belong to them and don’t like sharing. We grown-ups are guilty of this too. It is human nature to want to protect what is ours and guard our belongings and if it has our name or initials stamped on it somewhere, then it really is ‘mine’. Our name provides us with an identity and moulds who we are and how we are recognised by others. Perhaps this is where our fascination with personalisation comes in. Having our things marked out as ours. Seeing our name printed, embroidered, etched or engraved on our belongings making it unique and making it ours.
From our early school days when our mothers lovingly and painstakingly sewed name tapes into all our school uniforms the night before the beginning of term to the fashion of personalising our car with cherished number plates, even personalising our homes and boats with combinations of the owners names. This inbuilt desire to make everything our own by branding has made the idea of sending a personalised gift as a birthday or Christmas gift to a friend or loved one, such a big success.
The arrival of new born babies happens every day of the year making every day a day that a BabyFish personalised gift can be bought, delivered and received.
