Baby presents, like babies, come in every shape, size, and color. There are few showers that do not include the tradition of gift giving in some form. Why? Because new parents need so much that they are welcome recipients of any prettily wrapped package of buntings, booties, and burp cloths. Gifts can fill a need, fulfill a desire, create a collection, or offer unsolicited (but much appreciated) advice. From first outfit to first outing and first high chair to first year of higher education, parents have needs that friends, families, and coworkers can fill with ease.
