I dont think its too preachy, but I would ask her first. I bought my SIL a WN pocket and insert and 2 BG's for her first LO and she says she used them a couple of times, but when we went to visit the IL's almost a year later I found the BG's in a drawer at their house and they looked as new
She now has 2 kids under 2.5 and another one due in May and I dont see her ever using cloth at all anymore.
The problem with buying a cloth nappy (especially one like the WN set - as adorable as it is, and it really really is!!!) is that it ends up a very expensive gift if it is left unused. And I know that right now I am still thinking about asking SIL if I can buy the WN and the BG's back off her so she can buy something else with the money for our niece, but also so that those 3 nappies actually get used
