I have friends that are either becoming parents soon or have an infant in tow, so I wanted to get some ideas on what would be helpful for the first few years of parenthood.
Anti-tip furniture straps and anchors
Books! Nothing like stimulating the mind from an early age, and their library can grow with them! Offering your babysitting services would also be appreciated in most cases.
I think it depends on the kid. Ask the parents what they like.
Ask them if they have a wishlist
time and attention is the best gift other than that id say a trust fund
Books and/or toys
