Baby Gifts

Three of my friends have recently had babies and I'm new to baby gift giving. What do you normally give for a baby gift? Email me a picture, link or idea to magnoliasmarriageandmanhattan@gmail.com and I'll put together a post with all of the fabulous preppy ideas y'all have.

Do they have a registry somewhere, like Babies R Us or something? Otherwise, a cute outfit or two in a larger than newborn size is what my mother always buys and now I do too.

Mustella. They have the best baby products. And all new moms love them!

I have given baby blankets that are bigger than regual baby blankets (so they can gorw with the child). I am a knitter and have a wonderful pattern. I have made them all in a soft yarn that is off white (so it will go with most decor). The yarn also has to be able to be machine washed.

I'm a big fan of giving practical shower gifts, but then sending a fun small gift once the baby arrives. Among my group of friends, very few people reveal the baby's name before it is born, so I like to send monogrammed burp cloths after the little one arrives. Baby Sophia Gifts and Lauren Nicole do cute ones.

I just had a baby 6 months ago (my second.) The gifts I appreciated most of all wouldn't be given away later (i.e. wipe warmer.) A simple elegant silver rattle, a wee spoon with a monogram, a kit for handprints or footprints, a handmade blanket. Etsy has the most adorable gifts - go for homemade and support independent businesswomen!

I like giving Mackenzie Childs dinner ware for presents. The plates, bowls, and cups are extremely cute, durable and something they can keep forever. Here is a line. http://www.mackenzie-childs.com/productlist.aspx?orgid=115&floor=8&dept=10&col=115&keywords=/Tab8/Ena10/Ani115/
