We have all been there, scratching our heads at a registry list trying to figure out what to give the expectant parents. Or worse no registry, and you have no clue where to start. If you are hitting a roadblock with the baby registry, go off the path and grab a gift card and children’s book. Gasp!! You heard me. I said gift card. Gift cards to stores that a new momma will frequent are invaluable, and you can tuck it inside a classic children’s book. Or pick out a gift from the registry and use the book as a card. It will be fun for the little one to read as they go through life. Here some titles that everyone will fall in love with or love again.
