She's here!! What's a good gift?

My best friend just had her second baby! She was born at 12:02 this am! She's basically my sister and I'm so happy for her. I was wondering what might be a good gift to give her that isn't crazy expensive..? Any ideas at all? I want to get something for the baby but I want to get something for the mommy too. What would you want?

  • Get her a really nice scrapbook and some little scrapbook items that she can put together as a little keepsake for baby!

  • Buy the baby and outfit and give the mom your time. Go over to her place and help her out for a day or more. Help her do the laundry and cooking. Pamper her a little. That;s what I did for one of my friends and she thought it was great.

  • For mom - take a nice meal over and set the dinning room up nice for her & her hubby and stay in the other end of the house watching the kids to give them a little time alone, go over to her house to volunteer to watch the kids while she naps, a pedicure and manicure or a certificate for dinner out with her hubby and free babysitting when the baby is a little older.

    For baby - buy wooden letters that spell the baby's name and decorate them with paint, scrapbook paper or fabric and attach ribbon to hang on the wall over the crib.

  • O like the idea of something specifically for the mom....she will get lots of baby gifts, I am sure! The scrap book is a great gift, but not really a gift that pampers the mom.....I am trying to think of what I might have wanted when I first had my baby.....I sure could have used a chance to get my hair done....someone to babysit and an appointment for a haircut!
