Unique Non-Baby Baby Gift

Q: What are some good ideas for a baby gift that isn't baby stuff? I need a gift for friends having a baby. They are financially comfortable and although they have a registry, I would rather buy the baby something special or unique than contribute to their shopping list. Also, they don't know the sex of the baby (it shouldn't be so important but it does limit the gift options). Some sort of heirloom/thing you keep for later in life, or something...my imagination is drawing a blank. Any suggestions would be helpful! (PS-I'm getting the parents a little survival kit with scotch for dad, alcohol test strips for breast milk for mom, etc...something tongue in cheek. So this gift is just for baby.)
