Hold the Cigars: Alternatives For Birth Celebrations

The days of passing around a box of cigars in the waiting room may be long gone (due to bans and cancer risks), but that doesn't mean there's no room for celebration when babe makes his debut! Fathers, grandparents, and friends who have gathered to wait on the big news — not to mention the doctors, midwives, and nurses who helped the laboring mama along the way — will enjoy a trinket to signify the momentous occasion. From golf tees and bracelets to little bags of candy and lollipops, take a look at some of our modern-day cigar alternatives to tuck in your hospital bag!
