Excellent baby gifts for new parents
November 1, 2013 10:57 AM Subscribe
Friends of mine will be new parents! I want to get them a sweet-ass gift. They have a wish list but say they welcome any other gifts not on it if especially good. Veteran parents, what did you wish you had when your baby came along?

Normally I would go for something hilariously inappropriate that would garner a big laugh. But I was thinking when the sleepless nights of screaming descend it would be nice to have a gift that makes their lives easier (and is not liquor, unless that's the best choice).
They will both be working parents in relatively demanding jobs, so things like take time and experimentation like reusable diapers probably wouldn't be first choice. Preferably cost would be under $50, with up to $100 if especially awesome.
