should unborn babies receive holiday gifts?
OK, the whole world knows by now--- Will and Kate are expecting… and, as you might imagine, the words “Royal Baby frenzy” don’t even begin to explain all the hoopla over the anticipation of the heir-to-be. Within moments of the announcement, media outlets rushed to morph photos of Kate and Will to predict what the baby will look like.
Regardless of the media madness, the world really is thrilled for the young royals as they start their family….and give birth to a potential future king or queen of England. Soon, the palace gates are sure to be lined with gifts for the baby. Plus, this is the holidays….a time of joy and giving. That got GalTime.com Sr. Editor Jessica Ashley thinking: Will the royal family have a separate stocking for “baby x” on the mantle this year? Or, will they keep gifts and gear as far away as possible until the baby has safely been born?
Yes, I have been to my own fair share of baby showers, but when it comes to the holidays, should people—and even parents-to-be--- give gifts to anticipated bundles of joy? Is it cute—or simply too soon?
If this child was going to be born into YOUR less-than-royal family, would there be gifts tagged for him/her under your household tree? Should people give holiday gifts to babies-to-be?
