Here is my dilemma. A co-worker and I became pregnant at the same time. We became much closer friends as we went through pregnancy together and have spent a lot of time together, over the past year while we have been off on maternity leave. Our boys play together lots.
So, when it was my LO’s first birthday party last week, we invited her and her son to come. She got my LO a lovely, and I thought, generous gift. There was a beautiful book, a toy, a pair of pj’s and a cool t-shirt.
Now, here is my dilemma. Her son’s birthday is at the end of the month and since both her and her DH’s families live far out of town, she is just having a playgroup birthday party. She specifically asked for no gifts. I really want to return the favor and get her LO a great gift, but also want to respect her wishes of no gifts.
What do I do? Do I give a gift at a different time? Just a nice homemade card? Any suggestions?
