The act of gift-giving is a fundamental behavior that dates beyond the existence of humanity. Long before humans walked the earth, animals have been giving gifts in exchange for potential mating, receiving favors, and also to welcome new arrivals to the pack. However, the way we view and take part in gift-giving in the modern-day only really began in the 19th century, when technological evolution made it easier to give a wider range of gifts. While cavemen gave gifts of teeth and stones, we twenty-first-century humans know the best gifts for new parents are those that make their lives a little easier. This is traditionally done at a baby shower.
