No seriously, a large print Arduino would be great...

Back in the days of yore, my (almost) 77 year old father was quite the geek and maker, but never a programmer.

Gifts for new parents

Calling all parents! I'm due to become an uncle in December and with the holidays coming up I want to get my sister and brother-in-law some baby/parent-related gifts. What items did you find indispensable after your baby arrived? Please assume that all the major staples have been acquired at the Baby Shower... I'm looking for the type of thing that you never thought of or realized you needed until after the baby was home.
