@Curly W:  Im not sure if you’re a scrapbooker but maybe an ABC book?  Ive done that before for a one year olds birthday and the family LOVED it!  Something like this http://offbeatfamilies.com/2011/08/diy-abc-book  but with paper instead of felt.  I personally LOVE the idea of the month stickers- but that’s totally something I would use and I can see if they won’t use it it might not be worth it.  Loads of cute stuff on etsy if you think it will be sent in time

These are from my pinterest, I left them attached to my pinterest because my kids board is full or awesome stuff!

if you look at my pin board, there are all kinds of awesome things on there that you could add to a basket or tree, like homemade food pouches (for purees after 6 months when she decides to start, non messy), temperature taking thermometers, etc. You could maybe make a ‘sick time’ basket with child safe mediations (I’d add a big tag highlighting age recommendations), a thermometer, a book on baby sickness, like how to reduce a fever naturally, some soothing lavender baby bath supplies, and teething materials. Maybe lanolin cream if she is BFing, and some witch hazel and stuff for after she gets home from the hospital.

@Curly W: How about these grab and go bags? I think they’re an awesome idea… You can include a clean onesie, a diaper or two, an individual pack of wipes, etc. in a handy package so the new  mom can just grab one and toss it into the diaper bag or just grab it for a quick outting, like going to the grocery store.

The diaper cake.

Seriously cute, can be used as a centerpiece, and very functional for the mother!
