Q: We've got a baby on the way any day now, and a very limited amount of storage space (basically none) in his tiny nursery. What's a nice way to get relatives to limit their Christmas gifts to the baby? What I'd like to avoid is getting loads of big, bulky plastic toys. Can I ask people to stick to small wooden or fabric toys, books, or even clothes? Or is that terribly rude?

Editor: It's harder with extended family, but I would tell your close family that you simply don't have the space for any large gifts. Or, with any luck, they'll ask you what you think the baby might need or want and you can give them some guidance. Readers, what advice do you have for Kari?
