  • Baby sitting certificates. Offer to babysit when she needs a break

  • I usually just go to and get a case of size 1-2 diapers; those will always be useful. If you're looking for something more sentimental, I really enjoyed getting a footprint kit with an inkpad, cards, and a foot-shaped "First Step" photo frame.

  • Diapers, baby wipes, bath products for both baby and her, sleepy time tunes or better a bear or box that plays the sounds a baby would hear while still inside mom, monitor ( these are pricey so maybe a couple going together) See if she has registered anywhere, babies are us etc. You don't necessarily need to get those products at that store but you will know what she has on her wish list.

  • My favorite gift for new mothers is to get a gift certificate to a local photo shop or photographer. Always a big hit.
