Business in San Francisco will come to a halt on Wednesday when the city hosts a great big ticker tape parade for their San Francisco Giants. The team won, for the first time, the World Series and the town, the city I was born and bred in, has never been so baseball crazy. Giants stores are packed, orange and black is everywhere and Giants fever has infected all our 7 x 7 miles. Most just go for a t-shirt, a ball cap or one of those big foam fingers. But here are five awesome and interesting gifts you can get for babies, kids and collectors.
Above: Limited Edition Fear the Beard Hand Cut pacifier accessory. This is by far the most original Giants goodie to pick up. This handmade beard fits around your baby’s pacifier for include beard action! Available from Etsy seller piquantdesigns here (but right now it looks like they are sold out).
