    If you barely know him/her don't give 'em shit! You were invited just for your gift. Suckers!

    Rubber Novelty Vomit. They love it. It will be a huge hit.

    Then I wouldn't do the gift card. Buy a nice candle, or a bottle of wine, some flowers or take a cake.

    Modest gift card in an ethnic/urban "Congrats on the birth of your son" greeting card. Fuck 'em, don't expend too much effort if you are a fringe invitee.

    It will be cheaper than the gift card. I would do that instead of the gift card it will look like you went to some effort.

    If his wife is hot buy them a vibrator. If she's a pig get "them" a Fleshlight.
