Baby Shower Ideas for Boys: Gifts
Unfortunately, there is a heavy debate about wine and being pregnant. I would love to recommend a good red wine as a gift for the parents to be so they can relax. However, that would be unprofessional of me and maybe a bad idea. Instead, get them gifts for the baby so they can use their money for wine later instead of a pack of diapers.
