Hey Fools!
My brother is getting hitched in April, and I wanted to set something up for their future kid(s) as a present. I have had people tell me to stick with what they registered for, but if they dont like it, I know theyll thank me later. And besides, I dont think them not liking it will be a problem. First off, I am a dripper...I have three drips, and I think they are one of the coolest things around. The problem is that I would probably have to set up two, one for him and one for her. Also, I dont know if there are many stocks that they would really love to keep track of or be interested in. Another thing is that it might be a little hard for them to understand and keep track of the paper work. What I would really love to do is set up some account (Education IRA?) and put an index fund in there for the time being. And for every birthday/Christmas/important event put 50 bucks in for the lil buckaroo(s). The problem (I think) is that they dont have any kids yet, and I dont know if they will for a few years. So what Im looking for is some sort of investment vehicle that I can do the index fund in. Thank you for any imput!

Have a good one!
