Baby Etiquette Week: Day 3
A Gift for the New Parents?

We covered "Your Friend Is Pregnant," and "How Much & When To Give Baby Gifts," in days one and two of "Baby Etiquette Week." Now, Lisa, our guest contibutor, is weighing in on another gift question...

Should you get a gift for the new parents?
You don’t have to, but if they are close friends and you want to, it’s always VERY much appreciated. The gift can be small such as a cute picture frame or comedic parenting book; or more expensive such as a designer diaper bag or a necklace with the baby’s initials. All of these are fabulous baby gifts that the new parents (okay- MOM) will love!

:: BBA footnote: A couple of months ago, we asked you to submit your favorite baby shower gifts. A gift for the new parents was a popular response. Someone said a maternity massage and someone else suggested food or gift cards to take-out places for after the baby arrives. For more Favorite Baby Shower Gifts according to BBA readers, check out Part 1 and Part 2.
