You can't even say it, let alone spell it.  What is this mystery substance and why did it end up on the baby gift list when Jesus was born?

So since your Wise Guy friend already took the gold gift idea, what do you do? There has to be some other present that would make a good gift for a newborn.  What do you pick? Red Sox Onesie? Maybe he's not a fan.

magi giftsPicture this. You're a wise person, let's just call you a Wise Man. You hear that a great king is going to be born and you want to get him the kind of gift he'll be talking about for years to come. 

We're not talking a Cheese of the Month kind of present.  We're talking about the present to end all presents.  Oh, and let me add in here that you can't order off Amazon. Why? Cause you happen to live in the days before Ipads, texting and twiffering. (Okay, twiffering is a made up thing, but you get my point.)  As a Wise Man in ancient times, what would you gift to the new king who will be called Jesus?
