Gifts for Second Children

Gifts for Second Children

Q: So, a recent crop of "second children" are about to arrive among our group of friends and I am wondering about appropriate gifts. Should I aim for a gift that is personalized for the new bambino? Should I try for something practical like a savings bond? What about if the gender of the new bambino is the same as the fist? What if it is not? Would the new parents like something gender-specific or would it be better to gift them something they are sure to use, like a gift card? I guess I am assuming that parents save their newborn necessities from one child to the next. Is this true?
