What knittable baby gifts are most appreciated?

My close friend is pregnant (yay!) and I'm a knitter, so I'd like to make her a whole mess 'o' baby stuff. But I also want it to be useful
. I don't know anyone else with a baby, so tell me, Internet, what knittable items/garments do new parents really end up using for their infants?

A small sample of the items I've considered making: stuffed animals, bibs, baby blankets, hats, booties, onesies, sweaters, soakers, sleep sacks, leg warmers. Do any of these fall into the category of "sure, it's cute, but I never took the tags off"? Are there any knittable baby items that you think are super useful, or that new parents can't get enough of? Additionally, any tips on which items are useful in what sizes (e.g. don't bother with infant sized sweaters)?
