Mother’s Day 10th March 2013: Gift Inspiration for New Mums

As a new mother, no special occasion is anticipated with as much excitement as a first Mother’s Day.  It’s a key milestone in any new mum’s calendar, and when it comes to that special gift or memento to mark it with, it demands something truly unique.

But is there anything outstanding enough amidst the reams of framed photographs, keepsake boxes and jewellery that befits such a significant occasion?

Babies really can appear to change before your very eyes and tiny fingers and toes grow ever so quickly. Within just a few weeks, that little, chubby hand that was lost in yours has taken on a new identity. So imagine capturing a 3D impression: an amazingly detailed baby hand cast or baby foot cast that preserves those precious first few months as a new mother in a truly captivating way.

Giving Love and Capturing Perfection

A perfect Mother’s Day gift for any first time mother is formed when baby’s hands and feet are perfectly recreated in a bronze or silver resin cast. Mum can get involved as well, with stunning castings of mummy holding baby’s hand making a gift guaranteed to melt any heart.

All the love, joy and wonder of those first weeks and months of motherhood, when your bundle of joy seems impossibly tiny, are captured with wonderful detail in a baby foot cast or hand cast. The casting process is a simple one, taking place at home, or at a casting venue if it’s a gift and you want to keep the surprise hush-hush.

Gift Vouchers and Baby Casting Kits

There are two alternative options if you are gifting mum: gift vouchers and a baby casting kit.

Gift vouchers are perfect if you would like mum to enjoy the whole experience of having the cast taken at home and are probably the most straightforward unique gift you’ll ever buy.

Taking the moulds of baby’s feet is an enjoyable experience and if you and mum would like to be a part of creating these perfect keepsakes, a baby casting kit will make a wonderful gift. The kit contains everything you need to create the moulds at home. They are then returned to us so that we can craft the casts to perfection and present them in your chosen finish.

Creating the perfect gift this Mother’s Day

Baby keepsakes always make sentimental, heart-warming gifts for new parents, particularly on Mother’s Day, but a baby foot cast is a unique, stylish way of showing a new mother how much she is appreciated and loved, not to mention giving her a lifelong reminder of those precious early days that seem to disappear in a haze.

Mother’s Day Baby Keepsake Gifts at Image Casting

If you live in Greater London or Edinburgh, we can visit you to take baby’s mould using our kind-to-new-skin casting mousse. Further afield we still may be able to visit, but there may be an additional charge. Otherwise, you can visit one of our casting venues in London or our workshop in Battersea. We’ll need around 3-4 weeks to craft your baby foot cast or hand cast and our last order date for a completed cast for Mother’s Day is 26th February 2013. Alternatively, a gift voucher or a baby casting kit can be ordered up until a few days before Mother’s Day, allowing for postage time.

With a range of options available for finishes, personalisation and display, there really is no better way to capture the excitement and happiness of those first few days of motherhood this Mother’s Day than by giving the gift of a lifetime of joy: a baby hand cast or foot cast.
