This is a great gift for any occasion. This block is 3 inches cubed and can be engraved on all 6 sides. It is usually engraved with a picture, but can also be engraved with a letter or monogram. The other sides are used for the full name of the baby, the birth date, time, weight and length, the place where the baby was born, the parents name and who presented the block to the baby.
While this block is shown as a baby birth block, it has also been used for a confirmation block, first holy communion block, a wedding block, a birth block, an anniversary block, a baby's first Christmas block, you get the picture.
The block is made in the USA out of maple. It is hollow in the middle, so it is very light weight and has a great finish.
