First off....sorry if this post is in the wrong place but I didn't really know where to put it.
I just found out a few days ago that I was about to become an Uncle for the first time. The baby is due in July and I'd like to buy my brother/SIL some new things for the baby.
They aren't millionaires and I don't think they have a lot of savings to put towards their new baby which I think came as a surprise.
I've been googling prams & cots etc... for the past couple of days and have come across these three items.
(I would also be looking at getting some of the accessories that come with this.....any help would be appreciated)
They seem to pretty popular according to search results/baby forums, but I was wondering if it's a good idea to go ahead and buy them?
My gf thinks I'm nuts and says that buying these type of items is very much a personal thing (for the new parents) and that I should just give them the cash (3K) instead.
However, I'd much rather buy them some presents than just handing over cash.
Are buying those type of things as presents a no-no? Thoughts?
