Two years ago my daughter learned to knit, she also had a pirate themed wedding. Since then all gifts have been pirate themed. She is now pregnant with their first baby and even his room has undergone the underwater treatment with seahorses, starfish etc. Most people have a 'baby sleeping sign for their door, they have a skull and cross bones and 'keep out'. I think this would be an exceptional gift for her.
