Rookie Moms Heather and Whitney have started a list of gifts “that will not result in more stuff to put away, step around, or sterilize.” Brilliant! Most of us have far too much crap decking the halls anyway.
There’s always the old stand-by: the gift card at Amazon or [insert favorite store here]. (My mom used to eschew gift cards, saying they were cop-outs, and I can understand why, and yet they are undeniably fun for the gift-ee to use.) If you have any other ideas, please share them here or at Rookie Moms.
