Gift ideas for newborn overseas

A close cousin of mine who lives overseas in Europe is expecting a baby next month, a baby boy and it's their first. Looking to send them something fun yet useful as a gift, budget is up to $100 including shipping. Any ideas?

I'd rather it be a gift other than money. Any suggestions?

Not the most useful, but when our kids were born, a friend living out of country sent a personalized book from Iseeme.com. It was a beautiful high quality book with nice personalization on each page. My 5 year old daughter loves reading them.

I've ordered a bunch of books from that website as gifts for other people since.

Seriously. Money. Now, are they loaded? Really, for a newborn, there isn't much you can give to be shipped over seas that's of value.

What country?
Amazon is pretty much anywhere. Just buy him a gift from the country's local amazon.

I was about to say just buy something from the local Amazon site. I would suggest diapers, clothes (onesies), toys, bibs, or something fun to decorate the nursery/bedroom with but you'll have to check to see what they already have. Babies grow quickly when they're first born.

Some Canadian branded onesies and the like. A hockey Jersey if they are from a country that understands that. A Canadian Board book is also fun.

Cash is the best gift, easy to ship too.

Problem is, $100 is only ~€60 after conversion. Maybe less.
