It is easy to go overboard when buying for baby the first go around. Here’s the short list that Pragmatic Mom would buy.
I am partial to coordinating a group present and buying one big ticket item for expectant parents. It’s not easy to pull off but I remember how daunting and expensive it was to get ready for a new baby. This is not to say that I am not buying cute outfits with matching socks and hats — this is my only chance to buy those these days and it’s so much fun to pick it out! But if I think back on what I really needed; items that are impactful, special, unusual, and thoughtful, this would be my secret fantasy list of what I would want.
How about you? What gifts do you particularly treasure?
