Celebrate the baby's home with a state-themed gift. Locally Grown Clothing has baby one-pieces for every state. Sizes range from 3-6 months up to 18-24 months. Colors available are Grass (shown above), Navy or Pink. One thing to note is that you need to think ahead a little for this gift. I tried to order a t-shirt for my California Kid gift theme and realized it would not arrive in time. Here is a note about lead times from the Locally Grown Clothing Company website:
"Each shirt is hand-printed with care and shipped within 10-12 business days. On occasion we may not have your item available for printing. In this case please allow up to three weeks for delivery."
Etsy shop, Bannor Toys, makes these cute wooden state-themed rattles. You have the options to choose your own colors for the rings and you can also personalize it. It can be laser-engraved with either the child's name or their birth announcement (full name, birth date, time, length, and weight) for an additional cost.
There are several California books - here are a couple board books that are good for baby hands. Good Night California takes you through the beaches, mountains, deserts, redwood trees, farmer's market, Silicon Valley and other California sites.
