Making great birth announcements is something of an art form, and you only get one chance per baby! The process can be much fun, though, so if you feel like making another announcement, you can always have a second! Rest assured, we understand completely.
Announcing a baby is also an excellent opportunity to send and receive some swag. After all, who doesn’t love baby-themed personalised blankets? If you’re anything like us, you can’t get enough!
Did you know that Australia sees around 982 new babies every day? That’s a lot of birth announcements! Read on to find out how to make yours stand out!
Celebrating Your Baby’s Uniqueness
Every baby is a unique bundle of potential. From conception to birth and onwards, the life you’ve created is unlike any the world has ever seen. So make sure to highlight your baby’s individuality so friends and family can share in your joy!
A plaque with a baby’s photo and a personalised dedication is just the ticket. Birth announcement cards are great, but a wooden plaque can last a lifetime. Grandpa and Grandma are sure to put it somewhere front and centre!
Whether it’s a baby boy birth announcement or a baby girl birth announcement, there are options tailored to celebrate both, and more than just choosing between pink and blue.
Let Your Imagination Run Wild
When it comes to making a memorable birth announcement, imagination is key. Taking your loved ones by surprise with your announcement goes a long way.
The most impactful announcement is one that comes from the blue with bells and whistles galore. Try putting yourself in the shoes of those receiving your news and imagine how best to bowl them over.
It’ll make for great conversation next time you see them in person and make the big in-person introduction all the more satisfying!
Adding a Personal Touch
A personal touch is only possible with people you know well. Exercising your ability to craft something for a specific loved one shows you care and how attentive you are.
When someone notices you’ve gone out of your way for them, the gesture holds weight.
There are many ways to do just that for a baby birth announcement. Take your loved one’s personal preferences into account, and have some fun personalising their messages individually.
A personalised blanket is the perfect choice to warm hearts and bodies alike! A personalised artwork, photo collage, customised jewellery—even homemade treats—all these can help add a personal touch!
Thinking Outside the Box
Thinking outside the box is as easy as imagining what’s being pulled out. Everyone loves opening a surprise parcel! So what better way to make your announcement memorable than stuffing one full of baby goodies?
Picture the scene of Grandma getting a box in the mail from you. She sees your handwriting and knows something’s up! Imagine her face as she pulls out, one by one, thoughtful and personalised gifts with her new grandchild as the theme!
If photos go down well, a matching acrylic birth announcement will go down a storm. Sending things they can show off to their friends and visitors is a must! If it can be put up in the fridge, even better.
Get a Chuckle
It’s important to remember not to take yourself or your birth announcement too seriously. While your baby is undoubtedly special, beautiful, and one of a kind, try to have a sense of humour about them!
Bringing a child into the world is a rite of passage, but it’s also very strange. A new life is a blank slate and a reminder of our mortality. The serious nature of facing a huge change in lifestyle and outlook is nicely balanced with a joke or two.
Show yourself to be light-hearted about the prospect of being a new parent, and indulge in sharing the positivity around your friends and family. They’ll thank you for it!
Sometimes just a photo of your baby in one of our cute swaddle sets will be enough to get a giggle! Just saying!
Sharing Your Joy on Social Media
Social media doesn’t have quite the same effect as sending a handwritten letter. It pales still further in comparison to receiving a thoughtful birth announcement card or matching acrylic birth announcement disc. But there’s also a lot to say about it, too.
You can reach a large audience, including people you might not know well enough to send birth announcement sets to. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to mention, subtly, if you need anything in particular.
Talking about things like dummies might net you a pleasant surprise from a thoughtful aunt or uncle, or at least a tasteful dummy clip!
It’s also the best place to notify everyone if you plan a baby shower, so don’t be shy!
Celebrating Diversity with Multilingual Announcements
Throughout history, there has never been a time when people, no matter their race or creed, have found so much acceptance as there is now. We’re blessed to live in a rare moment in history where differences are beginning to be celebrated rather than abhorred.
The world your baby is going to be a part of is likely to be even more accepting. So it’s only fitting that their birth announcement details be available in as many languages as possible! There’s no reason that your joy can’t be shared with everyone.
Show your support for love without barriers by having your announcement translated for everyone to enjoy!
