What do you think is the best present to give someone when they are in the hospital just having a baby?

My friend is schedueled to be induced tomorrow. I would like to get her something for her new baby girl and a little something for her too. Preferably something not too expensive. What would you give to a friend?

  • Offer to get the novelty "birth certificate" (the one that is pretty & just for show - hospitals have them for like $5-10) but only if they haven't already gotten one. Balloons are just a clutter to take home (I haven't had a baby yet, but I've been in the hospital & they are just a pain to drag along when you're leaving). The novelty birth certificate is great. Or get a pretty frame for their first picture. Something with more meaning than flowers & stuff, but that will last longer than a bib, ya know? Also, bring food, something special that she really likes (eg: starbucks, curly fries, etc).

  • Bring her some food food is the worst plus they starve you while you're in labor. For baby, a cute outfit or some bibs and socks.
