Gift guides for babies and toddlers

Not sure what to get for your friend's new baby? Over at Work It, Mom!, I've put together a great slide show featuring some baby gifts that are anything but ordinary. Here's a taste:

Punk Rockin' Baby Clothes

Want to give a baby gift that's a little hip, a little edgy, and a lot of fun? These cool T-shirts fit the bill. They're made to last -- the artist doesn't use cheap heat transfers, instead printing the great graphics onto specially treated cotton fabric and sewing the art onto 100-percent cotton clothing -- and are sure to be a welcome change from the traditional pink or blue. And they do custom orders, too. $15 at You Little Punks.

Toddlers are notoriously tricky to shop for. On the one hand, you can't really go by the age-specifications on most toys (aside from safety warnings about swallowable parts, of course) since the skill levels vary wildly from 2-year-old to 2-year-old. On the other hand, pick the wrong gift and the child will be chewing on the box and ignoring the toy. Here's a great pick to get you started:

Puppy Veterinary Kit

Wanna-be vets will have a field day playing with this fantastic kit. The 18-piece set even includes a little plush puppy and a carrying case, so the doctor can take the patient everywhere. $19.99 at Target.
