You could open the college fund instead of just sending the check.  My nephew’s god father did that for him about a week after he was born it was very special for my sister and Brother-In-Law, they were very apprecieative of it because it’s something they wanted, and now they didn’t have to worry about it.

As a first time mommy, I am guessing that the best thing you could do for your friend is something for her.  Adjusting to parenthood is exhausting, and sometimes you feel overlooked by the people you love. (because, of course, everyone is all about the baby)  What I would have loved more than anything in those first couple of months were things like a really lovely pair of pj’s, carry out dinner, someone to come and help me keep up with housework so I could enjoy my baby, time to myself, etc.  I am sure that a really practical gift would be oh so perfect right now.

@juliette.eliza:  I was thinking the same thing but its true who knows if they have one already .. You can always just send them supplies.. Newborns always need diapers you can never have enough or you can send your friend something like a bath spa kit so that she can relax when she gets a chance to.. The sleepless nights can be a bit much sometimes ….

@MrsFuzzyFace:  I just saw that you live far away.  In that case, I would totally do a pair of pajamas (or some other relaxing gift) and some gift cards to restaurants.  I am a practical girl. 🙂

@MrsFuzzyFace:  This. When I had my son I would’ve loved some new pjs (because you do not get dressed for real for a while) or a couple gift cards out to eat (then you really CAN get dressed) but only if they have a babysitter… Otherwise those cards sit by the wayside.

Also? Gift card for massage, or salon, or something fun and pamper-y.

I second the relaxation gifts and the pampering stuff. Those are really nice for a new mom. 

If you want to do somethong for baby’s future, you could always purchase a savings bond. You buy them online through the national treasury so it doesn’t matter where you live.
