  • When you got the invite was there a card in there saying she was registered anywhere? If not, diapers or a gift card to a baby store is good.

  • if its someone you dont know i wouldnt go. but if its a freind or someone you like then go. get a practical gift. either look at the registry (if they have one) see something they might be in the need for and go from there. diapers are a good thing. maybe a cute outfit. or a gift basket. you can get them from anywhere really. or make your own. get a basket. put in some wash cloths.some bathing supplies. it really depends on how much you want to spend. if you need anything else feel free to message me. im GREAT with ideas.just need more info.

  • If you dont want to spend a lot go to the dollar store and buy washrags, baby wash, shampoo, baby lotion, a bottle brush, anything except food and put it all in a gift basket. Outfits are good, clothing up to 12 mo in size. I was really happy that someone got me packs of onesies in 4 sizes. A baby book is nice. if they are registered anything on the registry. Anything you found specifically useful for your child (include a note as to why it was useful/nice to have). Gift cards for baby stores or stores like target, walmart, ect so they can get baby needs later. My sister gave us giftcards to restaurants where children/babys are welcome so I didn't have to try to cook for a few nights w/ a new baby.
