  • Just the fact you want to get her one is GREAT. I would say a card and flowers maybe, or a gift certificate to get her hair or nails done.

  • Maybe you could take a dozen or so pictures of your child and make her a small scrapbook, and have your son (if he is old enough) help you decorate the pages.

  • You know this may seem cheesy, but all those #1 Mom necklaces I know somewhere sells step mom ones. I think it's great you want to get her a gift and that you all get along!! A scrapbook would be nice...maybe talk to your ex about getting some pics of her and your son together??

  • I just want to say that it is SO NICE to hear of a BM that isn't threatened by the SM and an SM that isn't being mean to the BM. It's rare. I'm so happy for you guys. I'm sure she will be happy with what ever you come up with; I would have your DS help pick out or make whatever you decide on. GL!
