How about a Safari, Wild Animal or Giraffe themed nursery? It's wonderful to create a special themed nursery for a child. We had a pale pink and red strawberry theme when my daughter was a baby but we didn't choose that very girly theme until after she was born.
With a giraffe themed nursery, the colors are pretty neutral and would suit either a boy or a girl. So you would be able to decorate the nursery well in advance of the baby's arrival.
I love this fun, pastel polka dot lamp which has been adorned with safari animals at the base. It is extremely cute.
How fun is the giraffe musical mobile where a long (fabric covered) giraffe's neck attaches to the crib. The giraffe is holding jungle tree-top leaves with some soft jungle animals dangling down. The mobile turns round to some soft music.
If you're not sure what to get as a nursery or baby gift, here's a very stylish 4 piece crib set which includes a matching giraffe quilt, bumper, dust ruffle and fitted sheet.
Babies tend to spend a lot of time in cribs and strollers so it's wonderful to give them things which they can spend time looking at as well as items that move slowly and make gentle sounds. Anything to stimulate a baby's interest whilst they are awake.
