When you have to get a baby a gift, I have one word for you: ‘no vulgarity.’ Ok, that’s two words, but you get the gist of it. You don't want to send the wrong message, do you? You should thing about what you would be doing to the very impressionable soul that can help it grow into a better person, and not just an expression of lust. I have always believed that the best baby gift is cash. It allows for flexibility in getting whatever is lacking for the child. Added to that, if what the parents need the most right then is not a toy or rattler, or something, the cash will certainly help when they have to go out and get it. I always give cash at baby showers. When shopping for a baby gift, it pays to have a chat with someone who might know better. There are a lot of people around you like that, in case you are not aware. A nanny, a parent or grandparent; these people have an insight into what makes a baby tick. I always try to get into the minds of the baby’s parents so that my baby gift can reach out to them too.
When giving a baby gift, you need to be thoughtful about it. Remember, this is a child who is just coming into the world. It would be nice if the child could have a few nice memories of this time. Be sure you gift is the memorable type. There aren't a lot of people who know how to bestow a gift to a new born babe. However, it is not as tough as all that. What you need to do is find your inner child. When you are able to connect to that, you will find that you make the best choices all the time.
