So your friends have a newborn and you aren’t sure what to get them? Registry too mainstream for you? Take a page from my good friends Mike and Katie and you’ll be sure to put something together they’ll love:
Don’t send alcohol! Booze may be confiscated at any border control, and if mum is breastfeeding, she won’t be able to enjoy it!
Send locally sourced and home-made jams and spreads! It’s creative, and has a touch of home in it.
Don’t take yourself too seriously!
Find something in keeping with their sense of humour, they can use a good laugh right about now… There are some hilarious tongue and cheek parenting books available.
Don’t just pick the general off-the-rack swag.
Find out what they love and stick to a theme. Gear from their favourite TV shows will always be appreciated!
Most of all – Don’t forget to have fun with it! Your friends will know how much you care as they go through the treasures you have sent.
Thank you Katie and Mike, this was a real treat to receive!
