Boxerlover24:  I have given the baby a gift of one share of stock from  http://www.oneshare.com   in a child oriented company or something the parents would approve of.

I would gift diapers &/or money, but also get the older sibling a little gift as well 🙂

Boxerlover24:  Some sort of pampering or treat for me! (the mother)

Either that or a cute toy. Each of our children has their own special stuffed toys.

I agree with pp…a pampering gift for Mom would be great. An idea I came acorss (I can’t think of where) is a GC for a one time cleaning of the house. At first I thought this was weird…but then I thought it sounded like the best gift ever! What Mom at 38-40 weeks pregnant (especially with another child in tow) wants to, or is even able to, give the house a real good head to toe cleaning? It could be something she could have done while she’s in the hospital, that way when she comes home with baby everything is fresh and clean! I’m sure you could find a local, reputable cleaning service in your area.

Probably one of the BEST gifts I had received for my second child was from my Mother.  She gave me a handwritten coupon that said it was good for “One full night of sleep”.  She would stay up with the baby all night while I sleep soundly on any night of my choosing.  I had two of those coupons, and they were the BEST THING EVER.

An offer to babysit child number one, so I can have some alone time with baby 2.  Baby 2 sometimes seems to get gypped because Child 1 needs attention too!
