Suggest a present
« on: January 29, 2013, 08:09:59 AM »
My closest friend, who was instrumental in my becoming Christian, is now expecting his first child.

Any suggestions?

There are many options but once I gave a Children's Bible with a Savings Bond inside for a friend in
a similiar situation.

Fantastic gift idea Buffalo.

My wife and I have also given a Childrens Bible a few times and the people always seem to like it.

And perhaps combine the Bible with something on the lighter side, such as this:

Also, if you can get a photograph of your friend holding his newborn, Zazzle could put it on a coffee mug with an appropriate message from you.
