It seems as though a lot of friends are either pregnant these days or just recently have had a baby. If they weren’t scattered all over the east coast I would think it was something in the water. Because of most of my friends seem to have their baby registries completed before they reach their third trimester, I started thinking outside of the box for gift ideas. A couple of years ago, my fiancé and I went to Ireland, while there one of his best friends and his wife had their first child. While there we took the opportunity to find something unique to the parents and from us to commemorate the birth of their first child. Since the father is of Irish decent, we got a nice bottle of Jameson at the distillery which had the new baby’s name engraved on the bottle. While, he can’t exactly use the gift at the moment, or for the foreseeable future, it is something nice he can look forward to once he is older. So on that note, I have put together some great gift ideas for both the future moms and babies.
