Gift for Boss

My boss and I have a good working relationship and friendship. His daughter is about to give birth to a little boy and I would like to buy the baby a small gift such as a blanket or outfit. Normally I would gladly buy the gift and not think much of it; however I have been told his wife is a very jealous person and does not appreciate females having anything other than a professional relationship with him. I find this silly, because he is almost 30 years my senior. My question is "Is it appropriate to buy a baby gift for my boss's new grandson?"

As long as the gift will not cause your boss to have family trouble, giving a gift is fine. However, there is no reason to tempt his wife’s jealously, if you truly feel this is an issue. Use your own good judgment . Whether or not you think her reaction is silly, is not important.
