Diapers and wipes!
Diapers and wipes!
I bought my friend a gift card for a local hair dressers. After she had the baby her hair started falling out (pretty common) it was super long and thick and she was sure the weight was making it worse and she was so fed up I got it for her to have her hair cut and styled and she was so happy! Sometimes I think people are bought so many babies things something just for them is nice.
Does she have freezer space?
Make her frozen dinners. Add reheating instructions to the lid so she can just toss it into the oven/crock pot/microwave/whatever and have dinner for her family.
Amazon gift card for sure
A Target (or other) gift card or baby clothes or diapers.
I’d go for really nice baby books and some classic handmade wooden toys. Or if you’re good at sewing you could make a stuffed toy or tag blanket (pintrest has loads of tutorials.
amanda1988: My go-to is diapers (either a variety of sizes or for bigger sizes) or books. I always provide a gift receipt so even if they don’t like the brand or aren’t using disposable diapers, they can return them for a gift card.
I think everyone tends to think of the “newborn” stage for the baby in terms of clothing and diapers, but anything in 6 months+ would probably be helpful. Several of my friends have had children and I’ve always received compliments from them about purchasing bigger diapers.
I would stick with non-consumable items (diapers/wipes) since she might have a preference
so go with your favorite book or a maybe a CD (or DL) of those cute contemporary http://www.rockabyebabymusic.com/
a cute organic stuffed animal lovey type things
organic cotton bibs or washcloths
Diapers, wipes, a cute blanket, or books.
I was so thankful for diapers and wipes I was gifted. Those things can get expensive. Maybe a little card. I find a card such a sweet present. Books are awesome too.
Gift cards are a godsend. My fiance and I were only twenty when our son was born, and we were blessed with lots of hand-me-down clothes and all other necessities. The things we really needed were to be able to buy groceries, diapers, and any other things that came up. I totally recommend a gift card. Plus, that way she can spend it on herself if she wants. Sometimes as a new mom, you really need a little extra pampering. (:
