Books are my go to for baby gifts. Parents buy so much stuff on their own and then they are gited piles more. A starte set of classic books and a small bookshelf can start a child on a lifelong love of reading.

Another idea would be a quilt custom made for baby. They will use that as a comfort blanket long after they are out of the crib.

I agree with PPs suggestion of a book. You can write a little note on the inside of the cover to make it more personal.

You can actually make a quilt pretty easily if you have access to a sewing machine and minimal skills. They are great gifts and you can make them in bright colors that babies are drawn too. Takes a little time but are very well received. You can send it to someone else to get quilted/the difficult part.

Books are always my go-to.

However, my mom bought my daughter a star map for the night she was born.

It’s a gorgeous print.

This isn’t quite as physical, but one of DH’s uncle bought him a government bond when he was born. He held onto it and cashed it in when he was 30. For our niece, we got her one stock in Disney for her first birthday. There are companies that will make these look really special and you can display/hang them.
