For baptisms, infant layette sets come in all sorts of assortments and in all sorts of distinct and unique designs. Readymade gift baskets come in different themes and with different items to keep it interesting and exciting for the parents.
Even the common gifts such as diapers, towels, and bottles retain their popularity because of the endless selections of shapes, colors and patterns. Blankets, curios and other knick knacks remain popular for the same reason. Technology has brought common baby gifts into the 21st century. Parents are now receiving digital picture frames and breast pumps which can be plugged into cigarette lighters in the car.
