Looking for a really special (and affordable) gift for a newborn? Sure, you can always buy a beautiful outfit, and that’s a safe best because you can purchase in a larger size for the future, but will the parents remember the gift? Is it something they will treasure and possibly hold on to for years to come? We asked our readers for the gifts they purchased for their grandbabies (or friend’s grandchildren) that received the best responses. We also asked that the items they shared be a good value.
