Gifts (Baby shower through 1st birthday)

This guide has all the little miscellaneous gifts that are treasures to receive. Sometimes you need to go beyond the registry (I never registered for anything at all) to find something that will be really memorable. There are tons of beautiful or fun or funky clothing ideas to give, but fashion isn't my expertise so I'm skipping all those suggestions. Other gifting ideas can be found at buymodernbathroom or buymodernbooks. Maybe you're really generous and want to give a bassinet from buymodernbassinets, a baby seat from buymodernbabyseats or you may want to choose something fun from buymoderntoys. Anything that doesn't fit in those guides is right here...
