  • I always make friends/family a bath time basket- Things that they don't seem to get. or get enough of. Most people get the big things and or clothes. but forget about the small things that are needed and need a lot of. most I spent was ($40) but you can make it as small or big as you want. I usually get a wicker basket and then also throw something in there for mom (like a gift card to a coffee shop.

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

  • 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.
