Baby Keepsakes: Paloma’s Nest

Do you remember when your first family heirloom was passed to you? Perhaps it was a bracelet, a holiday ornament, or maybe even a dish. For me it was a hunter green secretary’s desk given to me by my Nana. The significance of the heirloom is purely in its sentiment. I fondly remember how my heirloom housed fruit scented markers and an endless supply of retired stationary.

The downside is that I don’t get to enjoy my desk because I currently live 3,000 miles away from my Maryland Nana! Though I highly recommend passing on some of your favorite furniture, here is a wonderful option for gifting slightly more portable keepsakes…

Paloma’s Nest creates custom heirlooms to be cherished for generations. Their custom baby and family keepsakes make for sweet and delicate ornaments but most of all, newborn gifts. Artist Caroline Colom Vasquez crafts each piece made to order with your choice of names and dates. And in the spirit of true artistry, every Paloma’s Nest piece – no matter the material – is hand cut, freeform, with no pattern, and every single tiny letter is hand stamped, one by one. In addition, Caroline’s studio is powered 100% by renewable wind energy and wrapped in upcycled or recycled materials sure to impress the ones you love.

We’re smitten with the sweet baby plaque. Do you have a Paloma’s Nest favorite?

So cute! We don't have any heirlooms to pass down yet, so this is a good way to start.

These are the most PERFECT gifts for new grandparents, I can't believe how precious they are. I was a little sad to hear that they don't take hand and footprints at the hospital anymore when you have a little one but I think these will definitely be appearing under the tree for the holidays this year. Thanks for featuring!
