Are you planning your baby shower and hoping for something more original than a teething ring or more meaningful than yet another cuddly toy?
Tree or woodland dedications with the Woodland Trust are the perfect way for friends and family to celebrate the exciting arrival of your precious little one.
The trees or area of woodland dedicated to your baby will grow and change with them as the years pass. You can visit together and watch the seasons turn in a beautiful wood that's free to visit whenever you choose. Together you'll make priceless memories that last a lifetime.
Summer picnics in dappled sunlight; their first time jumping in muddy puddles on a wet spring day, kicking up leaves on a crisp autumn morning or hunting for twigs to give a snowman some arms.
Dedications also directly support the Woodland Trust's work with woods, trees and wildlife all over the UK. Trees and nature really need our help, and a dedication to your baby will do wonderful things for the environment and the birds, insects and mammals that call our woods home.
There are dozens of Woodland Trust woods with dedications available all over the UK and each one has its own special, unique character. Choose from grand old ancient woodlands or newly planted sites that will grow with your child.
You could ask for an individual tree dedication from your guests in your little one's name, or instead friends and family could team up and dedicate a larger area of woodland Â– maybe even with a bench or engraved marker post.
Dedications now come with a fresh, new pack containing a beautiful commemorative certificate, detailed wood information sheet and a map so you can easily find your way around the wood.
Organising a dedication is so easy with the Woodland Trust. Our expert team can help and advise the best option for you Â– just give us a call. Dedications are also surprisingly affordable, starting from a suggested donation of just Â£15.
So when your baby shower guests ask you what you and your baby want, tell them about Woodland Trust dedications and let them give you a gift that will last a lifetime.
