We’ve all been there—a friend’s shower registry is either sold out or filled with boring stuff (diaper cream, anyone?). Obviously, we’re prone to buying clothing as gifts, but we’ve put together a few additional options for boy, girl and wait-and-see babies that every mother will love. A few tricks of the trade: Put smaller gifts together in a lined basket, makes for beautiful gift presentation and useful storage for the baby’s room.  Blankets make great gifts for wait-and-see babies, and we love anything monogrammed (use last name initial if the name is a surprise).  The oohs and aahs that will accompany the gift-unwrapping segment of the afternoon are just an added bonus. Now, please relax and enjoy the party.—CC
