GIFT GIVERS GUIDE
Dos and don'ts for choosing the perfect baby gift.
Don't worry about spending a certain amount.
If you think a gift is right for the baby, it won't matter if it doesn't cost much.
Don't forget that less can be more.
One small gift that is thoughtfully chosen and beautifully packaged will always be a hit.
Do check the registry, even if it's just for inspiration.
You might be surprised at how much some parents love robots - or obscure Japanese designers.
Don't think just pink or blue.
There are so many great, fresh colours out there that modern babies prefer.
Do think green.
Eco-friendly and fair trade gifts are healthier for babies and make the world a better place.
Do feel free to go off-list if you're sure it's something the parents will love.
Do have a fallback.
Our favourite go-to gifts include beautifully illustrated books, distinctive onesies and special soft toys.
Do remember big brother or sister.
A small gift is a nice surprise for an older sibling who might be feeling left out.
Don't be offended if your gift gets returned, even if it was off a registry.
Sometimes, parents just don't know what they need until after the baby arrives.
Do ask for help.
