Savings bonds or money towards a college fund is a great gift not only for baby, but for his parents, too. Baby might not appreciate this gift now, but will as he grows. With savings bonds, you now need to plan in advance — you can't just go to a bank and buy them anymore. You have to go to the U.S. Treasury website and set up an account, for which you need the recipient's Social Security Number. So, you can't really give bonds as "surprise" gifts since they have to be in cooperation with the child's parent, but they're still a wise choice.
