gifts for NEWbies - 100's of gifts!

Seems like there are always new and exciting things happening... first day of preschool, first day with a new teacher, first time buying a house, first time moving to a new neighborhood, first dirty diet coke... I still haven't tried that yet.  I think I'm missing out.

With all of these firsts going on, you're bound to need an awesome gift to hand out here and there.  I've got you covered!  These list is literally 100 ideas long, and will get you started on the right foot with all those new experiences.
New teacher in a few weeks?  We've got gifts for that.  New high school grad this year?  We've got gifts for that.  New house for your sister or BFF?  Got it.  New neighbors moving in?  Check.
