the ultimate baby gift guide
i remember being invited to my first baby shower... kids weren't even on the radar for me yet, and the thought of finding just the perfect gift for my friend's baby girl was so daunting. of course, the simple and safe route was to pick something from her registry. and i did just that, snatching up the oh-so practical diaper genie. needless to say, it quickly became "the gift that keeps giving" and was put to very good use.
but if you are thinking of straying from the registry and want to find a gift that is both unique and practical, kodomo is here for you with a list of our favorite baby gifts!
