I keep a running list of go-to gifts for different occasions. This custom birth plaque a friend just told me about has made it on that list.
Etsy seller raedunn calls it a "three dimensional birth certificate." The plaque is handmade with the baby's information stamped into the clay. Each plaque comes strung with steel wire and ready to hang. You can choose an image of a crown, baby foot, party hat, bee or lady bug. You can order one at her Etsy shop here for $75 and check out the other great ceramic items in her shop here.
