Gifts for All Celebrations & New Parents

by Elise Bowerman

Give a gift worth receiving... we often wait until the last minute to purchase gifts for parties or showers, then pick something ordinary. Stand out from the other gifters, and give a gift with thought and inspiration! 

When giving a gift for a new baby and the parents have other children, please give a small gift to the new big brother(s) and/or sister(s). This is a huge life-change for them, as well, and it shows they are (of course) still loved. Your generosity will go a long way.
