Embarking on the journey of parenthood is a fantastic yet frightening experience. Realizing that you're responsible for raising a tiny human is enough to make anyone's head spin. While new parents look forward to their baby shower to score gifts for their newborn, it's also a great time to reward them with bonuses of their own. Caring for a newborn is hard work: there are plenty of sleepless nights, seemingly endless piles of soiled clothing and virtually no alone time, so a thoughtful gift would be appreciated.
If you're ready to think outside the box with a gift that keeps on giving in more ways than one, get ready: these are sure to tickle the fancy of new parents (and might even get a chuckle out of them, too.)
