    My son got 3 stocks ($ 100 worth) when he was born. Fifteen years later, these stocks are worth $ 600.00 (between splits and reinvestments of dividends). I think that stocks, bonds and even precious metals are a decent gift for a new born.

    Depends which stock it is. A stock is good because it will teach the kid about value.

    I recommend getting him a gold stock.
