Knowing how to congratulate a couple that is expecting, particularly the pregnant woman, can be a little tricky at times. Other than just conveying your congratulations verbally, certain gifts can surely light up their day. It might be first advisable to find out the gender of the child that is to be born. If the couple know, that is. The gender of the baby can usually dictate the color of the present that you will buy. Following the rule of thumb; blue will be for boys and pink for girls. In the event that the gender is unknown, stay on the safe side with yellow and white. These usually can be for either sex.
