I do not want to spend a ton of money this year, I’ve already spent more than I planned on Hubby and my Mom’s gifts.
Husband – A Chicago Bear’s hoodie, a winter hat, and a glass head to display a hat from his collection
Mom – Philosophy stuff, Vera Bradley scarf, 2 pairs of yoga pants
I have 2 friends who were in my wedding that I should get something for. My Maid/Matron of Honor is due with her 2nd baby in March. My Bridesmaid or Best Man just had her baby a few nights ago. I’ve already bought a philosophy set to split up so they’ll each get a body wash and lip gloss. Should I get them something family oriented? They both have a ton of purses… so that’s out. One likes Vera Bradley, maybe I’ll get her a scarf too, but they’re 38 bucks! Ideas ladies? You guys are the best for being creative! Thanks!

What about doing one of those cute prints with the alphabet on it for the baby’s room? Do you know the color/design? If so you could easily make that at home and print and frame yourself. It would be a really cute gift. Plus if she later wanted to use the frame for something else she could

Well since one is a new mom and the other is going to be then they probably don’t have much time for things. A gift I got one time that I thought was really neat was a friend did “dinner date in a bag” for me. She bought a cute beach/tote type bag and put packaged pasta, a jar of sauce, cheap wine, and boxed easy to make cheese cake in it. I thought it was creative inexpensive but still took care of dinner for one night. Hoped I helped!!! =)

What about baking them something? I made my husband Chanukah cookies last night, and he said that would have been enough of a gift. If only he told me that before I spent all that money!
