    Never-Ending Swag

    Friends, family, and strangers from around the world will be sending presents by the boatload to the new parents. However, don't think that they're asking for it. As with clothes, they won't accept gifts from the general public or companies nearby—only from people 'personally known to them — all other gifts are sent back. However, don't feel too badly for the baby for missing out on all that swag. It's safe to say that the people who are personally known to them, including foreign heads of state, celebrities, and British socialites will pull through with outrageous and expensive baby gifts. What sort of items will the royal baby be receiving? Expect silver, engraved rattles, hand-knit stuffed animals, and valuable antiques from the Queen herself. Not to mention, the child will have full access to the toys once belonging to Queen Victoria's children. Talk about a royal perk!
