Cotton beauty gloves are meant to cover lotioned hands at night, but they are also handy as washcloths for bathing slippery infants. With a gloved finger, it's easy for even a nervous new parent to gently clean behind the ears or between the toes of a baby. The gloves also provide a good grip on soapy skin. Include a bar of baby soap or shampoo with a stack of gloves (they're about $1.50 a pair); tie with a ribbon.
