It's more for the family and friends
But the baby receives a lot of gifts

Traditionally, koreans give 24kt gold rings and bracelets and charms (usually a golden pig for luck)
All that can be melted and remade into something else ... or sold for cash later

Unfortunately, gold price is so high that not too many people still give gold stuff for the baby
It used to be so easy for me
Half "don" (1.875gram) 24kt ring used to cost $40-50
It made for a very nice gift and I didn't have to think about what the heck to buy
Now the same thing costs almost $200

All the people who had babies more than a few years ago and received a gold ring from me made money just hanging onto it
