When it comes to the birth of a family's second, third or fourth child, many homes are already well stocked with baby gadgets and gear. Consider presenting the infant with a baby gift made especially for them. Handmade items from knitted outfits to crocheted shawls are often cherished and become heirlooms.
For ladies that lack the talent to stitch their way through an entire blanket, there's a shortcut. Sublime Stitching's Baby Bib Embroidery Kit ($20) comes with two blank bibs, iron-on transfers, embroidery floss, needle, and a full-color, illustrated instructional booklet. The patterns range from dress up clothing and fairies to rock bands and dancing vegetables, which can each be used several times over.
