need mom to be gift ideas...

Friends of ours are finally pregnant after trying for years. We want to get them a great gift to celebrate. It could be as simple as a box of diapers or very unique. What was the best mom-to-be gift you've ever given or received?

  • Baby name book - I know you can search online, but I loved looking through my book.

  • Also, you could take them out to a non-family style restaurant for a grown up celebration, or give them a gift card for one in a nice conratulations card.

    For mom only - gift cards for pregnancy massage or any other pampering are nice.

  • A baby jewelry box with her name on it and a growth chart with her name on it ( anything personalized).

  • A nice lullabye CD that mom can start playing for her baby now would be great.

    Also, a nice book of bedtime stories or nursery rhymes would be good so she can start brushing up on those.

  • I loved my baby name book too. How about a pregnancy journal and a baby name book.
    Then again, if she's not the kind of person who likes to read and write, I would go with some bubble bath products. We all know there isn't much time for relaxing after your baby comes.

  • A baby book, a really nice one. Or a photo album or picture frame.

  • I like nice jammies. The kind with a tank and pants/shorts. Super comfy during pregnancy... and the tanks are great for breastfeeding later. Something flowy and sexy with room to grow is nice too... even pregnant ladies like to feel pretty! Congrats to your friend!
